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

Gameweek 21 kicks off today so we are turning 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


Hit a Barnes Door

Harvey Barnes could enjoy the weekend’s action as he goes up against a typically obliging Leeds defence.

The Whites have given up 35 goals this season, an average of 1.8 per game and, over their last four matches, they have just one clean sheet.

Barnes looks the most likely of Leicester’s assets to profit at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Since Gameweek 17, the injured Jamie Vardy is the only Leicester player with more shots in the box than Barnes, who is top and joint-top for big chances and shots on target respectively.

You can get the winger at 6/1 to open the scoring on Sunday afternoon or 13/8 to net anytime.

And, given how open Leeds’ matches have been this season, there are also odds of 4/7 for more than 2.5 goals.

2 Goals Ahead Early Payout Offer

U WAT?

Ollie Watkins is back in the goals after a lengthy drought and could be a dangerous prospect again this weekend.

Southampton have been surprisingly obliging in the last four matches, registering the Premier League’s fourth-worst expected goals conceded (xGC) figure over that period.

During that time, Watkins ranks joint-second among all the division’s players for shots on target.

Therefore, odds of 9/2 for the forward to score first and 5/4 to net anytime are worth considering.

If you fancy a more differential call, why not look to Bertrand Traoré? The winger has four goals in his last seven league outings and is marked up at 15/2 to net first at Southampton and 9/4 to score anytime.

BASEMENT BATTLE

Fulham and West Bromwich Albion come into Gameweek 21 inside the Premier League’s bottom two for big chances conceded over the last four matches.

Could we see a goal-fest at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon then? If you think so, odds of 6/5 for over 2.5 goals might be for you.

Ademola Lookman could be at the heart of the action if he plays on the left-hand side of Fulham’s attack once more. Over the last four matches, West Brom are the worse team for defending the right flank (21 chances conceded there).

The former Everton winger has odds of 15/2 to score first and is 13/5 to net anytime.

    Martinez, Forster
    Maguire, Justin, KWP (inj), Dias, Saiss
    Salah, Fernandes, Foden, Maddison, Soucek
    Kane (inj), Bamford, Welbeck (inj)

    Looking at Kane to DCL but then 2 more moves for a minus 8. Options:
    A.
    Salah - Son
    Foden - Sterling

    B.
    Salah - Sterling
    Welbeck to Antonio

    C.
    Welbeck to Antonio
    Soucek to Havertz

    Thoughts much appreciated lads/lasses

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      none of this is worth hits

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Don’t like any of them even for free let alone a -8

  2. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Def intend to take a hit, just not sure which one. best upgrade?

    A: Dallas >> Digne
    B: Burke >> Grealish and then bench bamford

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Grealish -4 isn't better than Bamford, same with A

    2. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B

    3. AD2110
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B

  3. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Start which one??

    A) Saka (MUN)
    B) Wilson (eve)

    1. Messiah Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Saka from those 2

    2. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Really?

        Wilson away with 1 assist in 8 games or so v Saka with 52 points and one blank in 6 matches on a streak?

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          it's quite close, but I care more about what they are going to do. Their past points are gone

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            True but form is a good indicator in any market until the trend turns.

    3. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      A

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      A

    5. AD2110
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I’d probs do B this week purely on fixtures

  4. Messiah Hazard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Soucek Saka or Bamford. Which one to bench?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Bamford.

      Start Saka and Soucek.

    2. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      definitely not Bamford, but very close call between the other two

    4. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Soucek.

    5. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Saka

    6. Wicked Weapon
        3 months, 5 days ago

        For what it's worth, I am playing both Saka and Soucek. Bamford is benched but very reluctantly.

    7. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Ederson
      Trent / Digne / Dias
      Salah / Bruno / Barnes(c) / Grealish
      DCL / Antonio / Bamford

      Button / El Ghazi / Cresswell / Ferguson

      Taken a -4 and done,

      Jesus(don’t ask) + Alioski > Digne + DCL.

      I’m having a bit of a punt on Barnes captain as I think the game will suit his style of play.

      All G2G...?

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Did you sell Bamford for Jesus?

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          No, I sold Brewster and switched from a 3-5-2 to a 3-4-3 with KDB money.

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Sorry... The other way.

            Good luck!

            1. Galza
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              🙂 cheers

    8. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Bench order need changing?

      Dier, Holding, Bamford

      1. jomikijiq
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        of course

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Which way would you play it?

          Don't fancy Leeds at Leicester and lost confidence in Bamford.

          1. jomikijiq
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Bamford, Dier, Holding

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Thanks...

              Bamford is surviving by dint of Kane etc...

              Don't normally put my third striker last but it's my equivalent of making him train with the junior team!

              Stupid. You're right.

    9. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Is Raphinha >> Son worth -4 this week?

      1. jomikijiq
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I don't think so unless you captain

          1. jomikijiq
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            what likely follows are DGWs in 24, 26, 27. City triple going nowhere

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

              Home to spurs and away to eve worth double defence?

          2. SHOOTER MCGINN
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            City are streets ahead of anyone else right now. Fixtures not a concern

      The RMT tool has Sterling 6.92 as the preferred captain over Salah 6.5 and Son 6.3. Has to be the Gundog doesn't it?

      1. Podorsky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Need a good captain's pick though for rank rise.

    20. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Coufal to digne worth a -4 if it frees up the 3rd West Ham spot to potentially get Antonio in the weeks to come? Feels like a hit I’m going to have to take eventually (mistake to get 3 on 18 we and not get him)

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Can see the logic here as Antonio looks great, especially from next week when fixtures are great. Who’s your 3 hammers?

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Fabianski, coufal and souceck, double defence not really required, should have gone Martinez in retrospect

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            I think it makes sense and at least you are bringing in digne with a perfect fixture.

            Last week I did robbo to Cancelo for -4. Just fancied the next 3 for city and thought Cancelo might get a goal in one of those so got very lucky with the timing but these hits can pay off

    21. BaleKaneSon

        Repost Pick one budget pick long term?

      • Pat Bonner

        3 months, 5 days ago

        Bamford had 1 shot against Brighton and Newcastle - I know he was subbed early against Newcastle but still. Maybe worth giving him a couple more games but tempted to remove him this week and get DCL and mane for -4

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          As with pukki the train is done!

          Like the mobes

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Leeds still create a lot of chances but they have dropped off so much last 2. Is this when they run out of steam!

            1. Eat my goal!
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              They’ll still do alright against the bottom 1/2 but goals come from the whole team

              Bamford wasn’t prolific in the championship, he definitely wasn’t their mitro

              Not interested in someone who turns up in every 4 or 5 games for a 6 pointer

        2. King Kun Ta
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          I will give him two more weeks

        3. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 5 days ago

          I’ve already done vardy to dcl and I’m weighing up Smith Rowe to Mané and benching bamford but like you I also want to give him 1 more chance

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Mane looked so good on Thursday night as well. My hits seem to be paying off recently so I might do it but could backfire. Just takes a penalty for Leeds!

      • Rolls-Royce

        Lads, play one:

        A) Soucek
        B) Bamford

        1. BaleKaneSon
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Same decision I have to make it’s a coin flip but I’d say Bamford

            I have this problem as well. Obvious one is play Bamford but soucek might get some joy against Liverpool defence at set pieces. I think I’ll still play Bamford

          Are any of these worth a hit:

          Brewster > DCL
          Holding > Digne

            If you intend to play Brewster then he DCL one yeah

          Final call. Cap Sterling or gundo?

            I'd be less nervous captaining Sterling... But just bought in Gundo instead - can't ignore his stats ATM!

            1. Disturbed

              • 7 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              If Sterling was taken off early like gundo I would probably be less nervous too. Gundo is safer. Sterling is riskier but could be worth it. Confused.

              Which one suits Sheffields style of play and defending.
