The Fantasy Flutter: Betting odds on the weekend’s Premier League action


Sponsored by bet365


Gameweek 17 is only hours away so we again turn to the odds provided by our official sportsbook partner, bet365, to take a few modest punts on the forthcoming Premier League action.

As ever, we urge you to gamble responsibly and always remember: when the fun stops, stop.

The Fantasy Flutter: Betting odds on the weekend’s Premier League action 2


The full-time result odds for the Gameweek 17 matches are:

BOBBINS SEAGULLS

Brighton and Hove Albion’s winless run at the Amex now extends back over six months.

Since the restart of the Premier League in June, only Sheffield United have won fewer games in the competition than Brighton amongst teams to compete in both 2019/20 and 2020/21.

Wolverhampton Wanderers remain a work in progress but the ‘double chance’ price for a Wolves win or draw at 4/9 does appeal.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are actually second favourites to win at the Amex, with bet365 offering 7/4 on a visitors’ victory or 2.880 for a Wolves success on their enhanced odds offer.

As our outside bet of the week, we’re also backing Romain Saïss to open the scoring at 25/1. Since returning to Santo’s starting XI in Gameweek 12, the Moroccan international sits top amongst defenders for shots in the box and headed attempts.

That aerial prowess could be important, given Brighton and Hove Albion’s ongoing issues defending set-pieces: seven of their 25 goals conceded this season have come from dead-ball situations.

CHRISTIAN FAITH

It’s not often Christian Benteke graces these pages – at least, not in the last four years.

While he’s a long way from the player that offered value in FPL midway through the last decade, the Belgian has shown the merest glimpses of past glories recently.

Over the last six Gameweeks, only two forwards have recorded more efforts on goal.

And no player in any position has had more headed opportunities over that period, which is a pertinent stat given that Sheffield United have shipped the joint-second-highest number of headed chances all season.

The Blades are also still without a clean sheet in 2020/21.

Benteke is 11/2 to open the scoring against the Blades this weekend, with bet365’s each-way first goalscorers offer giving punters the option of a safe-net if the Belgian does find the net after the deadlock has already been broken.

IN GOOD NICK

There’s still the chance that Burnley v Fulham could go the way of the two postponed Gameweek 16 fixtures given that the Cottagers were unfit for action less than 48 hours before this piece went out – but, at the time of writing, the game remains on.

Should the match get the green light to go ahead, the prospect of Sean Dyche’s side facing an under-strength Fulham – who have scored only twice in five matches – piques our interest.

Burnley just know how to keep clean sheets against the fellow also-rans, having already registered five of them against teams ranked 13th or below this season.

Nick Pope also kept 13 shut-outs in 20 matches against the bottom-half teams last season.

The Clarets to win to nil is an appealing 5/2 with bet365, with a clean sheet for Sean Dyche’s side available at 6/4.

Nine of Burnley’s 15 matches this season have seen one goal or fewer scored, so it’s with that in mind that we tip up a 1-0 win for Dyche’s troops at 6/1 – safe in the knowledge that bet365’s Bore Draw Money Back offer will give us our stake back if the match finishes in a just-as-plausible 0-0.

    do you think it's too much West Ham to have Coufal, Soucek, and Antonio; and is it too much Leeds to have Bamford and Raphinha?

          do Brewster --> Antonio and Grealish --> Raphinha appear to be good moves?

          current full squad:
          McCarthy, Button
          Robbo, Stones, Coufal, Mitchell, Taylor

        Too much Ham will slow you down. Leeds speeds.

        Do we think Mahrez starts this week? Still have him and don’t want to make big transfers this week

        Is Ederson effectively ruled out for Chelsea, or could he still play?

              Yes. I'm aware. I meant can he return a -ive test in time to have a chance of playing.

                Jesus and Walker can apparently return to trg on Monday if they return a -ve test tomorrow. Based on them getting it well before Ederson I suspect he won't play.

          The Review: The festive fixtures

          Hi everyone, welcome to the latest edition of “The Review” where I look at the blanks, doubles and the new fixture rescheduling in detail:

          (Data taken from FFScout with consent)

          Q: How do we tackle the next three GWs?

          Given the unfortunate and untimely postponements of last GW, a lot of FPL managers were left deflated. For luck to have the final say was always going to be infuriating – given the amount of planning that goes into each GW, particularly the amount of work being put into all kinds of strategies by FPL managers of late. Just a slight point I’d like to make here, your frustration is only natural but it’s worth noting that a lot of gains are still to be made in the season so try and keep your heads up as we head into the most crucial stage of the season.

          Last evening, the Premier League announced that Burnley v Man United will be played in GW 18, meaning that Man United and Burnley no longer have any blank coming up. Bruno Fernandes is highly owned, so his owners directly get an additional player available in GW 18. Whether that is enough for you as a FPL manager to avoid the Free Hit chip depends on your team, but in my opinion, 7-8 quality players heading into GW18 should be good enough reason to avoid the Free Hit.

          The other news that came out was that Aston Villa v Man City will now be played in GW 19, meaning that like Burnley and Man United, both these teams not only have a fixture in GW 18 but also have a double GW in GW 19. This is of particular importance to Martinez, Grealish, Watkins, De Bruyne and City defence’s owners who suddenly find themselves with the ideal core of players heading into GW 18 and 19. I would not be selling any of these players at this stage.

          What stands out for me here is that Man City have great fixtures either side of the double now, and have the standout fixtures in the GW itself too (che BHA CRY+AVL wba SHU bur). Triple Man City is an absolute must to navigate this run of fixtures in my opinion. Someone like a De Bruyne is probably the go-to captain heading into the double GW 19 and potentially an outside shout for triple captaincy too. Investing in Man United players could be worthwhile too, given that they have have low ownerships (differentials alert!) and equally good fixtures either side of the double too (AVL bur liv/ful SHU ars SOT).

          This new COVID outbreak also raises slight doubts in my mind for the GW 19 Bench Boost strategy, as during these uncertain times, you never know which games might get called off. The Premier League has set a dangerous precedent cancelling fixtures hours before the games, hence we may not know if any GW19 fixtures are to be cancelled prior to the deadline.

          Q: Who is the best captaincy shout this week and why?

          I think the Spurs v Leeds fixture is the one to target here. I see Bruno Fernandes is the most popular choice in most social media polls, but I find the Man United v Villa game extremely hard to call. I think Bruno should be safe to get some returns, but I don’t think Villa will get obliterated. Man United’s attack has been in form, accumulating the most chances created and big chances created in the past six GWs but they will now come up against an extremely resilient Villa side who limited Chelsea to just the one big chance in midweek and have been 3rd best for big chances conceded all season.

          I can see Jose being pragmatic and picking Leeds off on the counter which should suit Harry Kane and Son Heung Min, in particular. This could be a very similar game to the Southampton vs Spurs game earlier in the season where Spurs get dominated but end up making merry on the counter. Despite two clean sheets in their last two games, Leeds are still ranked worst for big chances conceded and expected goals conceded in the past six GWs. Spurs, meanwhile, are also the bookies favorites to score 2.5+ goals this week.

          Regarding Mo Salah, I think like any other week he should be a safe choice for captaincy but I don’t think his ceiling is as big this week either. Southampton are ranked second best for shots conceded at home this season, so they will make it tough for Liverpool.

          Q: Is Robertson a better FPL asset than Trent Alexander Arnold this season?

          Robertson v Trent (over the 20/21 season):

          Mins per shot inside the box: 240 vs 1142

          Mins per big chance: 720 vs 1142

          Mins per chance created: 50 vs 50

          Mins per big chance created: 205 vs 381

          Mins per touch in the final third: 2.47 vs 2.55

          Mins per penalty area touch: 30 vs 54

          The numbers above are self-explanatory. Robertson is out-stating Trent in almost all the key underlying numbers. The quality of his chance creation means that he tends to do better for bonus as well. Further, it’s significant to note that Robertson is almost twice as involved in the opposition penalty area as compared to Trent. I think the sample size is large enough to safely say that Robertson is a superior asset this season.

          Q: Is Trent Alexander Arnold a worse FPL asset than he was last season?

          Trent 19/20 vs 20/21:

          Mins per shot inside the box: 212 vs 1142

          Mins per big chance: 1588 vs 1142

          Mins per chance created: 36.5 vs 50

          Mins per big chance created: 176 vs 381

          Mins per touch in the final third: 2.52 vs 2.55

          Mins per penalty area touch: 58 vs 54

          The numbers above suggest that it’s important that we see Trent in a different light this term. He’s still a good asset to own in isolation on a standalone basis but when you compare his numbers to his previous ones, it’s noticeable that he hasn’t reached the same heights this time – particularly when you notice the decline in the creativity department. Not only is Trent creating fewer chances this season but the quality of chances created has dropped significantly too.

          Q: Who should be the budget midfielder of choice, Raphinha or Soucek?

          Raphinha vs Soucek (last 8 GWs):

          Mins per shot inside the box: 38 vs 65

          Mins per big chance: 686 vs 240

          Mins per chance created: 40 vs 720

          Mins per big chance created: 343 vs 720

          Mins per penalty area touch: 17 vs 27

          Leeds xG 15.1 v West Ham xG 9.2

          Both Raphinha and Soucek would be my budget midfielders of choice heading into the double GW. Picking one is extremely tricky given that both are of a similar price and that both Leeds and West Ham have good fixtures in the DGW. Raphinha tends to do better for underlying numbers overall, but Soucek gets chances of higher quality and is being encouraged by Moyes to get more involved in the opposition’s penalty area, so I’d imagine his numbers will only improve. If I had to pick one, I would pick Raphinha because Leeds are a more attacking side, but it’s super close.

          Q: Che Adams, sell or keep? Does he fare better with or without Danny Ings?

          Adams (with Ings 20/21) vs Adams (without Ings 20/21)

          Mins per shots inside the box: 55.28 vs 90

          Mins per big chance: 124.4 vs 360

          Mins per big chance created: 199 vs 180

          Southampton (when Ings and Adams play) vs Southampton (with Adams only)

          Shots inside the box per game: 7 vs 5

          Big chances per game: 1.67 vs 0.75

          Chances created per game: 7.83 vs 6.5

          By looking at the above comparisons, it can be seen Adams and both Southampton as a whole, tend to do far better in terms of underlying numbers when Danny Ings is playing. Now that Danny Ings is fit and there to support him, it is worth keeping Adams heading into his double GW (LIV - lei + ARS AVL mun).

          Q: Is Anwar El Ghazi the go-to Aston Villa midfielder of choice now?

          Firstly, I’d like to look at how the addition of El Ghazi has affected Villa in terms of their goal threat:

          Aston Villa (GW 2-12) vs Aston Villa (GW 13-16)

          Shots inside the box per game: 10 vs 13.25

          Big chances per game: 2.8 vs 3.25

          Chances created per game: 12 vs 15.5

          By looking at the stats, it can be seen that El Ghazi has given Villa a different dynamic. Villa’s attacking numbers were impressive enough as it is but have since further improved with El Ghazi’s addition to the team. Now I compare him to Jack Grealish:

          Grealish (last four GWs) vs Grealish (GW 2-12) vs El Ghazi (Last four GWs)

          Mins per shot inside the box: 45 vs 39 vs 28.9

          Mins per big chance: 360 vs 180 vs 69.4

          Mins per big chance created: 120 vs 129 vs 347

          By looking at the underlying stats it can be seen that El Ghazi has been providing a better goal threat than Grealish, who has seen a slight decline in his goal threat numbers as compared to his season averages and seems to have taken up a more creative role which is due to him dropping into midfield and acting as a playmaker. With El Ghazi on penalty and direct set piece duties and approximately being a couple of million cheaper than Grealish, he would be the Villa midfielder I would pick if I were picking one right now considering they have a double GW coming up. (mun TOT EVE + mci bur sou)

          Q: In this section I look at the defensive assets of Leeds:

          Dallas vs Alioski (over the season):

          Mins per shot inside the box: 238.5 vs 151.5

          Mins per big chance: 477 vs 454.5

          Mins per big chance created: 715.5 vs 303

          Mins per touch in the final third: 4.44 vs 3.63

          In my analysis above I have ignored Ayling as he has been playing centre back of late so carries little to negligible threat. Dallas is the more secure asset in terms of his starting place, but I’d assume that Alioski would also keep his starting position, at least for the short term given his stellar performances of late. When both him and Dallas play, he is the superior asset as the numbers above highlight. I now look at Leeds’ recent defensive performances:

          Leeds (GW 1-14) vs Leeds (GW 15-16)

          Big chances conceded per game: 3.21 vs 1.5

          Shots inside the box conceded per game: 11.5 vs 6

          The stats from the last two GWs show improvement for Leeds in the defensive department compared to their season averages. Investing in a Leeds defensive asset could be worthwhile since Leeds play twice during DGW 19, but be aware of the lack of fixture in the blank GW. (tot - BHA + SOU new lei).

          Q: Should faith be kept in Dominic Calvert Lewin?

          FPL managers are growing increasingly frustrated by the lack of big returns from the Everton talisman, who has been averaging ∼3.83 points in his previous six matches. I now look at his numbers during this spell:

          Calvert Lewin (GW 10-15)

          Shots inside the box: 13 (Forward Rank: 5th)

          Big chances: 6 (Forward Rank: 1st)

          xG: 3.22 (Forward Rank: 3rd)

          Despite the loss of Richarlison and James Rodriguez to injury, it can be seen that Calvert Lewin is still posting good numbers averaging a big chance per game. With Richarlison back to help him against West Ham and favorable fixtures to follow (WHU wol avl LEI NEW), it might be worthwhile keeping faith in the forward.

          Q: What has been the impact of Sam Allardyce West Brom’s defence?

          Here I compare West Brom’s numbers under Bilic to their numbers under Allardyce, which I have further bifurcated when I compare his first game in-charge against an inform Villa with the next two fixtures against Liverpool and Leeds:

          West Brom (GW 1-13) vs West Brom (GW 14) vs West Brom (GW 15-16)

          Shots conceded inside the box per game: 10.7 vs 11 vs 8

          Big chances conceded per game: 2.7 vs 3 vs 2

          By looking at the underlying stats, it can be seen that West Brom have improved defensively over the past two GWs despite the fact that they conceded five times to a Leeds side who were ruthlessly clinical. This might be early signs of a bigger improvement incoming. It’s too early to invest in their defence as yet but Sam Johnstone owners can hope for better returns should their numbers continue to improve with mixed fixtures and a double GW to follow (ARS - wol + whu MCI FUL).

            Love your reviews. Thank you so much.

            Can’t decide between Harrison and Raphinha, who would you pick and why??

            Thanks big man!!

                I've spent a lot on time on this.. Raphinha seems the clear winner. Set pieces and bigger goal threat!

            Great stuff Bakar.

            I agree triple city looks ideal but with issues around pep roulette and covid who would your 3 be?

            I was looking at Dias Stones and KDB. I still think Pep will rotate his defence with Laporte and Ake at some point. Ederson was also a consideration but now he has covid I'm sure.

            Thanks

          Bench two please:

          A- Dallas (spurs)
          B- Mitchell (SHU)
          C- Coufal (eve)
          D- Stones (che)
          E- Justin (new)

            Mitchell won’t play so that’s one.I’d also bench coufal

              How do you know Mitchell won't play?

            I’m benching A and C and hoping Mitchell plays

          Is this worth doing ?

          GW17 Save
          BGW18 Salah to KDB or Sterling (keep for 6 GW's)
          DGW19 Kane (also have Son) & bench fodder mid (Bissouma) to Salah and bench fodder forward (Davis)

          I already have 8 for BGW18
          -
          Dias, Dier, AWB, Lamptey
          Bruno, Son, Bissouma
          Kane, DCL

          McCarthy, Forster, Justin, Salah, Soucek, Bamford

            If you aren't bench boosting in 19 then Why not

          Very hard week. Two FT's with the plan to FH in 18 so I've got to use em. 4/5 defenders + keeper has the DGW so don't feel like I necessarily need to make any moves there. Would ideally move one/two of DCL, Kane and Son but they've got good fixtures this week.

          DCL & KWP -> Antonio & Cancelo looks decent but feel it could easily cost me points.

          1. Black Knights
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            Doesn’t Cancelo have Covid? Antonio needs to prove fitness first. Bad moves.

            1. RECKLESS

              What about Ruben Dias? Is he safe?

                • 9 Years
                2 months, 16 hours ago

                I have him so I hope so!

            Need to see the whole squad for best advice

        6. Sturridge Wars
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          No point Free Hitting now in 18. Man Utd & Burnley being added makes things a lot easier

          1. mikess
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            Indeed

            Not if you have only 3 playing....

          is Stones nailed for upcoming weeks?

          1. mikess
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            Not nailed but he's currently a key member of the first team, one mistake and Laporte returns almost immediately

            1. klopp2567
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 16 hours ago

              safe to say he is first choice?

              1. mikess
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                2 months, 16 hours ago

                Based on current form, yes

        8. mikess
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          Martinez
          Robertson, Dias, Stones
          Salah, Bruno, Son, Soucek
          Kane, Bamford, Wilson

          Johnstone, Lookman, Kilman, Dunne

          Would you bench boost or TC this squad in 19?

          2ft with 0 itb. Johnstone is sound for a bench boost but I could use the funds otherwise. 3 outfield bench players need upgrading but players like Dallas and El Ghazi are cheap enough with plenty of potential

          1. Black Knights
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            You can’t upgrade lookman, Kilman, dunne with nothing itb though. So TC.

            1. mikess
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 16 hours ago

              I've got transfers. I would downgrade Kane for example but only in 19 itself

        9. EWH2020
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          Start one:

          A) Dallas
          B) kilman

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years

            Dallas

          Any news on Taylor injury? Can he be back for Manutd match on 12Jan? It really decides me usimg fh in bgw or not

          1. mikess
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            One defender playing United is the key?

            1. RECKLESS
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 16 hours ago

              Actually it decides Taylor to Dias transfer and affects dgw planning

              1. mikess

                • 10 Years
                2 months, 15 hours ago

                A city defender with those fixtures looks a smart move, it's whether you roll the dice this gameweek with this City outbreak

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          Better option?

          A. Saka Justin
          B. Neto holding

          1. mikess
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            Think I prefer B. Neto looks very good. Shame they struggle to score goals

          Which Man U defender to get?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 14 hours ago

            Thinking about bringing in De Gea for Mccarthy for a hit. Feel slightly confident it'll pay off over the next 7 or 8 weeks

        13. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          1. Raphinha
          2. Harrison

          Best pick and why please, can’t decide ?

        14. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years

          If Mcity covid infected players are to be quarantined, can they be back for Jan 13 fixture considering it will be 15 days till then? Realy want to buy Dias and keep since i will lose FT if I free hit next gw

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            Lack of information is what making me wait to get one of the City players in atm.

            1. RECKLESS
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 16 hours ago

              But if i Free Hit next gw I will lose a precious FT for dgw 19

            Depends when they test negative but got to think it’s unlikely they are out that long but no one knows at this stage

        15. Bad Kompany
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          Which one to bench?

          A. Rodrigo
          B. Raphinha
          C. Soucek

        16. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          Who plays instead of Charlie Taylor at Burnley?

          Erik Pieters?

          1. Bad Kompany
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            Yes. Pieters

            • 10 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            He dropped back into defence last game. Would think so

          3. King Kohli
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            How long is Taylor out for?

        17. Xanthorpe
            2 months, 16 hours ago

            Johnstone or Areola?

            1. Bad Kompany
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 16 hours ago

              I’ve got johnstone

            • 7 Years

            Why are people saying Palace won't start Mitchell? He was their MOTM in the last game and they looked much more solid

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 15 hours ago

              I’m playing him on the off chance he starts but looked like pva just got a rest last gw so not expecting Mitchell to start

            Who do you guys thinks is the most safe city def to play for the next 3 gw’s....Dais, Cancelo or Stones?

            Complete the bench boost team: (all require same amount of transfers)

            A) Stones Pulisic Bowen Antonio
            B) Alioski Harrison Bowen Vardy
            C) Alioski KDB Bissouma Rodrigo

            Leaning towards B but not owning KDB for the DGW and the fixtures afterwards is scary

              • 10 Years
              2 months, 15 hours ago

              Rule A out with the uncertainty surrounding Pulisic and Antonio. Then I'd say B edges it

                Ideally I'd like to downgrade someone in order to afford Son to KDB in GW19, but hard to justify downgrading anyone!

              Happy new year guys!

              I currently have 8 BGW players and 9 DGW players in this lineup.

              United and City are
              Obviously the go to teams at the moment - however the only way I can see making the switch is by removing Trent or Robertson.

              Am I missing something?
