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.

    DDG
    Cancelo Stones TIERNEY
    KDB Son Fernandes Rashford SAKA
    Kane WILSON

    2.

      Really not much in it, You basically deciding between Tierney/Holding and Laca/Wilson.

      I am an Arsenal fan and do believe that we could concede against palace.
      Would bet on Laca scoring an attacking return so this would lead me to say team 2.

    3. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years

      DDG in both. 2nd option for me

      1. fcsaltyballs

    1. AC/DC AFC

      Why not but Brewster still?

      1. StayoutheSpiceZone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Have a similar team for - 4, no way should you waste your FH.

  10. Easy Cheesy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Defensive FH team. Thoughts?

    Leno
    Cancelo, tierney, maguire, dier, saiss
    Kdb, bruno, son
    Kane, wilson
    X, mcgoldrick, smith-rowe, burke

    £2m itb so could change wilson/ smithrowe to laca/ bench fodder

  11. Mr Ozil
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Best back 3 and keeper to own this Gameweek?

    Is doubling up on City defenders (Stones and Cancelo worth it?

    1. vova
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I went with DDG Cancelo Dier Stones

  12. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year

    Foden over Wilson on FH?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years

      No

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

  13. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Team looks much better without Salah

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Rank doesn’t though

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years

          The weekend will be here before you know it

  14. subhojit123
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Is there another blank GW planned around gw30 or is everyone playing their FH this gw?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      GW29

    2. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      There is, will probably use 2nd wildcard to navigate

  15. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    So I am stuck between these 2 teams, basically deciding between a stronger defence and Foden/B.Silva in midfield or a slightly weaker defence and Rashford in 2nd team.

    1) Lloris
    Cancelo Tierney Maguire
    Son Foden Bruno KDB
    Laca Kane

    or

    2)Ramsdale
    Stones Holding Kilman
    Bruno Rashford Son KDB
    Laca Kane

    Your thoughts would be appreciated

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Rashford v Foden?
      Flip a coin or decide on fixtures and form.

      Burnley tight at home but injuries...

      1. subhojit123

  16. Alisson WondHaaland

    1 month, 16 days ago

    Those who watch United games: How essential is Rashford on a free hit? The few times Ive watched him, he seemed quite isolated on the wing. Not sure if he's worth that price tag

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I’ve put him in due to the fact he could have a ‘going’ day. However, they can be few and far between!

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      How essential? Not essential at all is the answer. Bruno will cover United’s goal involvement

    3. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Getting more forward now in the more narrow system, only player who runs behind the line when we counter. If he was a bit more clinical he would haul every gameweek.

      Doesn't hug the line like he did at the start of the season.

  17. DaddyPig
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    FH Team:

    De Gea
    Regulion Cancelo Tierney

    1. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2. DaddyPig
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah, what’s the funds?

      1. Rhodes your boat

    1. Rhodes your boat

    I will have no bench, so:

    1. GK: Leno or Darlow?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years

    C) Sterling
    D) Auba
    E) Just keep Salah on Bench

    Also Holding or Lowton/Taylor

    Thanks.

    1. Steager
      • 3 Years

      *Salah not Sarah lol

    2. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Difficult. I would probably go for Son.

    3. Die Hard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      B. Son

    4. Rhodes your boat

      B

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        And holding

  22. DK_13
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Should I do

    A)grealish to rashford (-4) [1 week punt as this spot gets upgraded to salah next week](I also have bruno if that matters)

    B)DCL to laca(-4)[a permanent transfer so laca stays for the next few weeks]

    C)both moves for a total of -8

    1. Machine_Gunnerz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 16 days ago

      B. Not enough updates on grealish and he is on DGW.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      C

  23. vincentwsho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Any news on Everton vs Villa? Is the one day postponement preliminary or meant to suggest it could go ahead?

    Thinking of whether to drop Martinez and Grealish...

  24. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Salah not in my team this week. Hope he doesn't punish, one can never be too sure

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      His replacement getting a red card is always possible 😀

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 16 days ago

        His replacement has the armband so I'd hope not

  25. fpork
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Currently on this team, how does it look?

    Lloris (Peacock-Farrell)
    Cancelo, Stones, Tierney (Yedlin, Mitchell)
    De Bruyne, Son, Rashford, Fernandes, Saka
    Wilson, Kane (Davis)

    Could upgrade Wilson to Laca, but it requires me to downgrade Rashford.

  26. fcsaltyballs
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Best option, who scores more on FH18:

    1. Tierney Saka Wilson
    2. Holding Smith-Rowe Lacazette

    Cheers

    1. soumyeah
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      1 for sure

    2. ㅤRising
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      If you're on a FH I think there is no place for Holding there you must get Tierney. I would pick 1 but I don't like Wilson personally

    3. Poison Apple
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      i wld pick 1 just to avoid a triple up.

    4. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      1

  27. ㅤRising
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Pick one please:

    A. Rashford, Smith Rowe, Dias (451)
    B. Laca, Foden, Saka (352)

    1. Machine_Gunnerz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 16 days ago

      A

    2. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      A

    3. soumyeah
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      A safer B higher ceiling? who are the other 3 DEFs?

      1. ㅤRising
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

      How confident are you in Gundogan and do you think he is a better option than Foden?

        Foden is much more advanced

        1. ㅤRising
          • 2 Years

          Yes but how likely is he to start than Gundogan?

        Think he’s more nailed than Foden otherwise I’d go there.
        I could change Gundogan > 4.5
        Saiss >> Stones
        ESR > Saka

          Yeah its tricky its either Gundo/Foden or a second City def

      If you did saias to Maguire it would be exactly the sane as mine. Whether that's a good thing I don't know...

        Yeh that’s an option. I was toying with Digne.
