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

Get your single bets paid out if the team you back goes 2 goals ahead – for multiple bets the selection will be marked as a winner.

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.



Each Way First Goalscorers

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.

    If cancelo is benched, likely to stay benched or cameo ?

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

      depends on the result

    2. Kudo Warrior
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Cameo likely to come on for one of the midfield guys.

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

      during the last benching, he came on...

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

      Word up!

    5. Return of the FF
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Is a benching likely?

      1. boombaba
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Pep

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

        Highly unlikely

    6. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      During last two beachings in all competitions he came on, did get attacking return in the cup game though. I don't think he'll be benched though.

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Cheers

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

      They are saying 3 premier league games. Out for 2 weeks best case scenario.

      1. Kudo Warrior
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I'd say thats worth getting him out. It's the three easiest fixtures AND peoppe like DCL have great fixtures during that period.

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

          Yep, the first link quoting the Telegraph journalist says Kane will miss the game against Tottenham!!

  2. WE GO FOR IT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Bamford out to?

    A. Watkins
    B. DCL

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

      prefer DCL now, but both great picks

    2. Galza

    3. Amey

      1. acidicleo
        • 5 Years

        thanks...all of them to be 2 pointers very likely...

      B2

    3. Galza

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

        thinking of dallas too...
        Mitchel more chance of cs but Dallas possibly more upside..

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

          Not a fan of Mitchell tbh.

    4. jomikijiq

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

      thanks all...
      No more confusion on the fwd...
      Wood goes to first slot on the bench..

  4. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Bamford to DCL worth a hit?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I think so

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

      no

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

      Yes

    4. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Thinking same but no

  5. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    In their prime who was better? Makelele or Kante?

    1. Neo-Viper
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Makelele

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

      I've not seen Makelel play. But pretty sure most will say him because of what I've heard about him

    3. Hooky
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Makelele by some distance

    4. GE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Makelele

    5. boombaba
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Joey Barton

  6. DK_13
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    I had DCL captain all week and just realised Gandhi might come into play(early kick off).
    Captain whom?
    A) salah
    B) cancelo
    C) grealish
    D) DCL

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

      I'm on Salah currently

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

      Gandhi?

      1. Tommy J
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I presume it is the latest storm name. We have high winds in the NW- doesn’t seem too bad at present.

  7. Neo-Viper
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Play

    Alex McCarthy - Villa Home
    or
    Sam Johnstone - Fulham Home

    1. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Probably Johnstone

  8. Alexis Nonsense
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Do I play

    A) Fabianski

    B) Johnstone

    I know, I know....but save points maybe?

    1. Neo-Viper
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Read up.

      Leaning Johnstone myself

    2. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B

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

      Johnstone.

    4. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      A
      Pool scored last match but struggled to score in a few before that...
      And the potential for save points too..

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

      B

  9. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Pick one:

    A) Play Mitchell in a 3 man defense: Stones James Mitchell (Holding Coufal)
    B) Do Holding to Digne for -4 and play this: Stones James Digne (Mitchell Coufal)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I like B

    3. GE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B

    4. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      If wildcarding in 25 I might do A. Coufol can easily play next 3 with Mitchell on bench.
      If not digne is a good long term option with 2 blanks left to be scheduled

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I am wildcarding in 25

    5. Sam (Team Sam)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I'm considering a hit to replace Holding too.

      Can afford any defender in the game

  10. GE
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Captain who?

    1) Gundo
    2) DCL
    3) Son
    4) Cancelo
    5) Dias
    6) Bruno

    1. GE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      7) Salah

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I am captaining Son

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Gundogan

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

      Son.

    5. Sam (Team Sam)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Gundo for me

  11. One of Those Days
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 5 days ago

    DCL captain anyone?

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

      Yes. Hatty incoming

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Seen plenty - think he is a reliable 6/7 points minimum

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

      I’d definitely be tempted, it’s just the he early kick off that puts me off.
      I know it shouldn’t, but it always has... 🙂

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

        Me too. Especially on a Sunday.

    4. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      It's the first KO, they never do well

    5. Bubbles1985
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Yes.

  12. Diro
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Play :

      A) Wilson
      B) Bamford
      C) Both and bench Soucek

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

        B

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

      Made DCL C. Change my mind

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

        Good punt

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Low ceiling, put decent floor. Solid if unspectacular punt

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

      3. DK_13
        • 5 Years

        First kick off

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

          Bruno last week. What's the point?

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

      Play Bamford or Justin? (Already starting raphina)

      Cancelo worth getting for -4? (Will play ahead of the above)

    • WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Captain?
      A. Salah
      B. Sterling
      C. Son

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

        I'm on Salah, but think Sterling is the best this GW. Would go for him if I had him

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

          Interesting...

      2. Raybigblue

      DCL?? Why the sudden hype? Just because it's Newcastle? Or has this epiphany just snowballed...

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I am riding the snowball

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

        Newcastle innit

      3. Wicked Weapon
          3 months, 5 days ago

          I fail to understand it myself but I was gullible enough to do Kane>DCL

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

          Return of all their players and looked sharp last game apparently

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

            Scored in the cup too.

            Penalty box player.

            Still one of the highest scorers.

        • Hooky
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Good fixtures. James and Digne both back who are 2 of the best crosses in the PL. Lack of other striker options

        • GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Not a lot of forwards in form. Was unreal when he was in form a few weeks ago. He's a wait and see for me. Newcastle are we capable of spoiling the Everton party though not on recent form, Darlow not his usual good level. They kinda have a bit of a bounce with St Max and Fraser, so I'm gonna give Wilson another turn.

      4. Yann12
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Hi, do I play Wilson (lee) or Soucek (Liv / already have Antonio). Tx!

        1. Return of the FF

          Gundog vs DCL the captaincy battle this week ? Or do I have it all wrong ?

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

            Depends on your options.

            For me is between Cancelo, Sterling and Salah.

        • The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Took a -8 for this. G2G?

          Stones Cancelo Digne
          Grealish Bruno Salah Son (G)un
          DCL Bamford

          Button Mitchell Brewster Coufal

            I need help. What trades should I make for my team? I have 2 FT and 0.5 ITB

            Current team:
            Martinez
            Cancelo Stones Cresswell Mitchell
            Salah Sterling Bruno Grealish Soucek
            Antonio

            Sub: Forster, Bernardo***, Kane***, Davis
            *** = flagged

            Would you take a hit to upgrade a bench fodder defender so you don't play both Cresswell and Robbo against each other?

            Digne, Chilwell, Cancelo etc... so many good options!

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

              yes if you have a city slot free you trade that in.

              1. Hitman MHK
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Don't like hits but yeah, you're probably right!

            • 4 Years

            Keep Dier or Soucek first on the bench? Have Kane in the starting XI.

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

              Soucek, could pop up with a goal.

            GTG?

            McCarthy
            Dias Stones(vc) TAA
            Salah Soucek Grealish Bruno Gundogen(C)
            Kane DCL

              I'd drop kane

                Can’t see him featuring but like to keep him there just in case and also to tease my mini league rivals

            Field Bamford or Wilson?

            Would you replace Holding for a hit?

            If so, for who?

            I can afford any defender in the game and already have double City at the back.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Digne

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

              Triple city if you don't have a city mid?

              Who are your other defenders if you already have x2 City, i.e. can you not bench Holding?

                I have Gundo.

                Other defenders are Shaw and Coufal

            3. Over Midwicket
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Robbo or Trent.

              Digne is a trap. Leeds will score and Everton are still leaky without a fit Doucoure or Allan. 6mil is daylight robbery for Digne

                Was considering one of them next week. Not sure if they're worth a hit this week
