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.

    Son or Sterling on FH?

    1. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Son

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year

      Son

    3. McSauce

    4. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years

      I'm going to have a punt on Sterling I think. Son tends to do better away from home although you would never back against him scoring. The review hot topic had some great research on it that I've shamelessly copied below, thanks to bigmanbakar.

      Home stats Son vs Sterling this season
      Mins per chance created: 36.6 vs 67.5
      Mins per big chance created: 219.53 vs 180
      Mins per shot in the box: 109.7 vs 45
      Mins per big chance: 164.5 vs 77.14

      I think I've done that right! I also think Fulham are better defensively than Brighton and Man City seem to be getting their mojo back.

  2. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Pick one for FH

    A. Dias (double City defence)
    B. Foden
    C. Wilson

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Foden.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      A

    3. McSauce

      A for safty

    5. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years

      A

    6. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 28 days ago

      So many boring players looking for a ceiling of 6 points.

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Pretty sure you were hyping up double City defence earlier 😉

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 28 days ago

          On a FH, not a chance. As a long-term strategy, definitely. Surely even a simpleton like you can understand that?

  3. JIMMY764
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Seeing quite a few Arsenal triple ups on FH. No concerns that they don't play until Thurs? We've seen a lot can change in 48hrs lol.

    On that note:

    A) Neto
    B) Saka - triple arsenal

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Saka

      Im going double Arsenal (Tierney & Saka). Most probably avoiding Laca.

  4. soumyeah
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Leno (Forster)
    Wan-Bissaka Cancelo Saiss Tierney (Mitchell)
    Rashford Fernanj DeBruyne(C) Foden Saka
    Kane(VC) (Wilson, Carroll)

    1. soumyeah
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Tell me how this all goes wrong. Zaha brace.

    2. Bad Kompany
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Why is Wilson on the bench? I’d start him over awb or saiss

      1. stu92
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 28 days ago

        I would agree, I’d probably bench Saiss.

      2. soumyeah
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        good call, thank you. had some drinks and ended up 4 4 1

  5. Bad Kompany
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    How likely is Darlow to start?

    Might go him if I can’t stretch to lloris but will have to find funds if dubravka is a threat

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Same boat. I was set on Darlow, but was too much of a risk to go with him this week.

  6. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 28 days ago

    On the FH, few last players to decide on.

    Lloris
    Cancelo Dias Tierney
    KDB Bruno son
    Kane Laca Wilson
    (4.0 ___ Mitchell Burke)

    A) start Maguire, SmithRowe on the bench
    B) start Saka, Yedlin (4.4 max) on the bench

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      B

  7. Adamf1980
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Why have I still got Chris Wood in my team? Anyone else .. could nick something v Utd then a double?

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 28 days ago

      May as well hold for a bit longer. Not many options in that price bracket.

  8. My heart goes Salalalalah
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Rashford or Laca on FH?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Rashford

  9. DonBenzema
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Double up on on City defence with Cancelo and Stones or AWB instead of Stones?

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Double City

    • Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Already own Stones... Dias/Cancelo the better option?

      1. Ëð
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Cancelo much better option but depends what you can afford.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          5.8 my budget, I also looking at City's run no one trumps it.
          You eluding to something/someone else?

          1. Ëð
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 28 days ago

            I don't think there's anything wrong with Stones either. I have Cancelo and Stones double up but I'm on a FH. If not on a FH I think Cancelo is worth the extra.

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 28 days ago

              I already own Stones as I stated.
              This is not a FH.

    • McSauce
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Final call for me;

      A) Lloris & Tierney
      Or
      B) De Gea & Regulion

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        A. Easily

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        A

      3. McSauce
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks Gents, I am on the save thought process

    • farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Pick one for this week only:
      Neto
      Wilson
      Foden
      B.Silva
      Mahrez

      1. Adamf1980
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        I’d be tempted with Silva

    • Ëð
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Rashford or Lacazette on FH?

      1. Abra Dubravka
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Ha, just posted same dilemma. I’m on Rashford atm, but could easily be persuaded otherwise

        1. McSauce
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          I am on Lacca but regretting triple Arsenal Now!

      2. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        If you have Bruno , I would go with Laca, hes been real dangerous lately and involved in all of Arsenals attack

    • Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Those not FH or WC, have you taken a hit if so how much?

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Would have been a -12 so I just went with WC..

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          That's exactly what I am sitting on, don't think you'll need it at a later date?

        2. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          I am leaning towards -12 over WC...

      2. FeverPitch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        -4 probably to put out 8. Anymore starts to harm my team for the double next week

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Some assets however play once in gw18 and twice in gw19.

          1. FeverPitch
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 28 days ago

            Yeah - if you can get those guys in over people blanking this week I hen take the hits!

      3. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Loss of DCL has been a blow - managing 18 and 19 with a couple of -4s seemed much better than -8 but think I'm going to go with it. And replacing DCL with Laca seems like a good move anyway. Trusting that everyone will be wanting FH/WC later in the season when I can make my money back

    • Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      On FH:
      A) Rashford in a 3-5-2
      B) Lacazette in a 3-4-3?

      1. McSauce
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        this is literally the main dilemma on here!

        1. Abra Dubravka
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Slightly leaning to Rashford as I have Tierney and Sal already, 3 Arsenal is unthinkable.
          Without Rashford, I only have Bruno.

    • Lord Flashheart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      choose one:

      1 - bissuma to saka -4
      2 - johnstone to DDG -4 (i have no playing GK)
      3 - DCL to lacca -4
      4 - dont bother

      i do not play FH now but playing BB in gw19

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        1 or 3

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        -4 is fine, trade DCL.
        -8 even for a gk that gets a CS is a better option than no score.

    • andres
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Would you bringn in Laca to your team?
      I mean like transfer in, not FH.

      1. stu92
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Depends who for tbf.

        1. andres
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Dcl

          1. stu92
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 28 days ago

            If you’ve the cash to spend then sure. I dropped DCL a few weeks ago and don’t regret it, Laca could be a nice little differential.

      2. Van der Faart
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Nah

        1. andres
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Saka and ERS better value? Or just keep on ignoring Arsenal?

          1. stu92
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 28 days ago

            I don’t think you can get much better value than ESR if he keeps his place in the team.

      Is it worth it to have Dias and Cancelo, or should you downgrade one to Stones?

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Yes if it doesn't implicate transfers and you need $

    • Rhodes your boat
      • 4 Years

      1) yedlin or Clark?

        Wilson may be a doubt no?

      Haven't made a FH decision yet, shall I pull the trigger? Or could a few hits be enough?

      My team w/o is

      Stones Cancelo
      Son KDB Bruno Burke

      Not seeing many the RMWCT posts flowing now - need some inspiration.
      Here's a draft from me

      Leno Fabianski
      Dias Stones Dier Wan-Bissaka Coufal
      KDB Son Bruno Socuek Smith-Rowe
      Kane Wilson Bamford

      Leeds and Southampton DGWs in doubt makes me lean towards TC in dgw19 - or possibly FH, Lack of viable striker options makes me think BB would be waste. Might then look at losing Kane to get Salah in for DGW19 somehow.
