The Fantasy Flutter: Betting odds on the midweek Premier League action 3

BE DE-SAISS-IVE

Romain Saïss‘ recent goal-scoring form could continue when Wolves host Everton on Tuesday evening.

Over the last four matches, the Toffees rank inside the bottom four for headed goal attempts conceded, which bodes well for the Moroccan centre-back.

During that same period, he ranks top among defenders for shots in the box and producing two goals in the process.

The fact that he is 22/1 to open the scoring at Molineux, or 9/1 to net anytime, is attractive indeed.

Meanwhile, if Richarlison can win his fitness race, his odds of 7/1 to get the first goal appeal too.

The return of Lucas Digne and James Rodríguez to Everton’s line-up, and absence of striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin could ensure more high-quality service to Richarlison’s left-flank. Wolves have conceded 23 chances down the right-hand side over the last six matches, compared to just eight through the middle.

RASH DECISIONS

Marcus Rashford could benefit from Burnley’s own problems defending wide areas in Blank Gameweek 18.

The Clarets have conceded the second-highest number of chances down the right-hand side over the last four matches, somewhere Rashford could do damage at Turf Moor.

If Paul Pogba is unable to start Tuesday’s short road trip, the England international should reclaim his left-sided attacking midfield role, from which he has six goals and four assists away from home this season.

In fact, Rashford has no Premier League blanks on the road in 2020/21, which is why his first-scorer odds of 4/1 on Tuesday look good.

THE BIG GUNS

Ilkay Gündogan has been creeping under the radar in recent weeks, recording three goals in his last four Premier League appearances.

The two most recent of those have come in a more advanced role for Manchester City, which has helped him even outperform his esteemed colleagues Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling over the last four matches.

Despite playing marginally fewer minutes than both of them, the German international has a higher total for shots in the box and big chances.

That’s why Gündogan’s odds of 10/1 to be the first scorer at the Etihad Stadium are worth considering.

He has both the underlying statistics and the form to back up his appeal in a favourable home fixture – Brighton have just two clean sheets on the road this season.

Elsewhere, Sheffield United’s meeting with Newcastle is 6/1 for a 0-0 and Alexandre Lacazette, who has four goals in his last three, is 10/3 to open the scoring for Arsenal against Crystal Palace.

    What is with all the Rashford hype on here?

    Have seen people choosing him over Son which seems like madness.

    1. ivantys
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        Hype based on his pointless away form stats, and ignoring Burnley's strong defensive stats as well.

        BGW, DGW, GW20 vs SHU

          This and they will have Kane as well

      thoughts on what to do with the 1.6 ITB?

      Darlow
      Holding, Stones, Shaw
      Bruno (v), Son, KDB, Gundogan
      Lacazette, Kane (c), Wilson

      subs.: Button; ESR, Keane, Mitchell

      I could do Keane --> less expensive DF and then Wilson --> Martial; should I do that, and are there any players from the other teams I should consider? (1.6 ITB)

        11 days, 1 hour ago

        I replied previous page. In short, upgrade your defence and don't worry about Tony.

    4. Jdpz

      Will Darlow play? or Dubravka?

      1. JabariParkersEyelid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        Bruce has indicated that it's Darlows job for now.

        With that being said I wouldn't take the risk. There are plenty of keeping options this week without that question mark.

      Guys, I need help. This is my first season playing and I don't know what to do after all the latest news.

      Martinez* Button*

      Cancelo Dier Ayling* Coufal* Taylor*

      Salah* Bruno Son Grealish* Soucek*

      Kane DCL* Watkins*

      0.5m in the bank and 2 FTs. Go for a -8 and save the free hit?

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        Team is decently set up for game week 19 so I would play free hit

      2. JabariParkersEyelid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        If I was you I'd free hit, then take a minus 4 in 19 to get KDB.

        Burning your transfers sucks but you need to adapt, your team is good for 19 and bad for this week.

      3. ivantys
          11 days, 1 hour ago

          FH I guess since you've missed the early Salah to KDB boat.

      4. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        Will Leeds still have a double in GW19? What does it depend on?

        1. Lindelol
          • 2 Years
          11 days, 1 hour ago

          That's the real headache right now

      5. Jdpz
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Aurier or Dier?

      6. Lord Flashheart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        not on a FH, and no playing GK. for a -4 hit would you do any of those:

        A johnstone to DDG
        B bissoma to Saka
        C bissoma to smith rowe
        D DCL to laca
        E B+D for -8
        F dont bother with the hit

        1. Lord Flashheart
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          11 days, 1 hour ago

          another option is bissoma to lookman

        2. King Drogba11
            11 days, 1 hour ago

            Maybe D.

            Depends on your future plans with DCL

          • ivantys
              11 days, 1 hour ago

              D out of those.

            • King Drogba11
                11 days, 1 hour ago

                A could also be good due to United’s double next GW.

                1. Lord Flashheart
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  11 days, 1 hour ago

                  true - but johnstone has also 2 games

            • JabariParkersEyelid
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              11 days, 1 hour ago

              FH draft, last decision is should i go Cancelo over Dias, think rest is fine.

              Lloris (4.0)
              Tierney Stones Dias (Yedlin Mitchell)
              KDB (c) Bruno Son Rash Smith-Rowe
              Wilson Kane (vc) (Brewster)

              G2g? Fairly template.

              1. King Drogba11
                  11 days, 1 hour ago

                  Cancelo over Dias yes.

              2. King Drogba11
                  11 days, 1 hour ago

                  Best defender for 4.5 ?

                  Want Clark but now not 100% sure he will start.

                • Lindelol
                  • 2 Years
                  11 days, 1 hour ago

                  Who will partner Maguire? Bailly or lindelof?

                  1. 2OLEgend
                      11 days, 1 hour ago

                      My guess is Lindelof

                  2. 2OLEgend
                      11 days, 1 hour ago

                      In your opinion, who's the best forward to own in DGW19 - max 8.0m ??

                      1. King Kohli
                        • 8 Years
                        11 days, 1 hour ago

                        Bamford if Leeds have a double, Antonio if not.

                        1. Weeb Kakashi
                          • 4 Years
                          11 days, 1 hour ago

                          South Leeds wont happen in 19?

                          1. 2OLEgend
                              11 days, 1 hour ago

                              Nothing confirmed

                        2. ivantys
                            11 days, 1 hour ago

                            Cavani if have to pick one.

                            11 days, 1 hour ago

                            Bamford if dgw, Antonio if fit and plays Cup game

                            1. 2OLEgend
                                11 days, 1 hour ago

                                Cheers. What cup game?

                                  My bad. He played 90 min last night. FA Cup. thought it was today.

                                  1. 2OLEgend
                                      11 days, 1 hour ago

                                      Thanks, I did not know. Think he will be fit to play both games in the double?

                              • 2OLEgend
                                  11 days, 1 hour ago

                                  Should have said I allready have Bamford.

                                Who would you remove for Stones?

                                A. Mitchell (Although Mitchell plays this week, likely to be a 1 or 2 pointer at best)
                                B. Konsa (Konsa could be handy with plenty of dgws down the line)

                                7 playing this week if I remove Mitchell, 8 if I remove Konsa.

                                Gw 18 team:
                                Cancelo Taylor Mitchell
                                KDB Bruno Anguissa
