The Fantasy Flutter: Betting odds on the weekend’s Premier League action 2

GAMEWEEK 23 MATCH ODDS



ANFIELD TITLE WRAP?

The stand-out clash of the weekend unquestionably comes at Anfield, where Manchester City are aiming to win for the first time since 2003.

A victory for Pep Guardiola’s side would send them ten points clear of the reigning champions with a game in hand still to play, all but ensuring that the Reds would not be mounting a successful defence of their title.

Tight-looking games such as these can leave Fantasy managers casting around for assets elsewhere, especially when it comes to the captaincy situation.

But the match will be a captivating spectacle all the same – and there are some interesting odds being offered up by bet365, whatever your allegiance.

If you’re in the red corner, when else can you remember Liverpool being 12/5 to win on their own turf?

And if you’re on team blue: it’s not often that City, who let’s remember have kept 11 shut-outs in their last 13 Premier League outings, have been priced at 12/5 just to keep a clean sheet.

As usual, bet365 offer an array of markets for those who love their underlying stats.

Ruben Dias is 4/9 just to make more than 0.5 tackles which, given how much Liverpool need to win this game (and ergo be on the front foot), seems very plausible indeed.

Punters can also bet on things like shot counts (see below), which is where our Premium Members Area can come in handy.

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.

IS THE POPE CAPTAIN?

This week’s announcement that four Premier League clubs will have a Double Gameweek 24 has sent us in a spin.

Among that quartet is Burnley, who enjoy an appealing double-header against the less-than-prolific attacks of Crystal Palace and Fulham.

Before that is a meeting with Brighton at Turf Moor, and Nick Pope is, unsurprisingly, the most-bought goalkeeper of Gameweek 23 as a result.

While Burnley and Pope are celebrated for their defensive fortitude, particularly against the ‘also-rans’ of the division, the Seagulls themselves are in great shape at the back.

Robert Sanchez has kept four clean sheets on the bounce and Albion will head to Lancashire knowing that their opponents have not only scored the least amount of goals in the division this season but also that they could again be without their two main strikers.

We’re all over the 0-0 at 6/1, then, but if you wanted to live a bit more dangerously and actually bet on a Clarets 1-0 at 9/1, bet365’s Bore Draw Money Back Offer will get you your money back if the game does result in a stalemate.

RYAN FILLIP

Cast your minds back a season to Southampton’s last 9-0 defeat, when the Saints prepared to face Manchester City in their very next league game.

A lot of us lumped on City assets in the hope of a similar rout but, such is football, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops produced a much more resilient display and only just succumbed to a late 2-1 defeat.

There’ll no doubt be another reaction from the Saints, then, when they head north to Tyneside this weekend.

That said, it’s a bit of a surprise to see Newcastle listed as second-favourites at 9/4 with bet365 (actually drifting from the original 2/1) for their home game against the south-coast club.

With the same bookies’ enhanced odds offer, a full-time Magpies win is available at 3.35.

Newcastle have looked a team transformed over the last two and a half Gameweeks, ever since their rousing second-half display against Leeds.

Steve Bruce’s side have had more shots than any other team over the last three Gameweeks and were a tad unlucky to lose to Crystal Palace in midweek, with their new 4-4-2 diamond system producing some attacking football.

Ryan Fraser has been deployed ‘out of position’ alongside Callum Wilson in that set-up and, while traditionally more of an assist merchant, he is available at an appealing 12/1 to open the scoring this weekend.

Fraser had two presentable openings against Palace, being denied by Vicente Guaita on both occasions.

Incidentally, bet365’s Each Way First Goalscorer offer effectively means that Fraser will be 4/1 to score at any time – the full details of which are below.

    Who has better chance for CS this gw?

    A) Man Utd
    B) Southampton

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

      A

    2. FPL ElasticO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Man U maybe .... hard to call SOU noway

      1. sunzip14
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Have started DDG currently. May be irrelevant, but just thought about maybe starting Forster just in case McCarthy is dropped.

  2. Zlatan F.C
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Martinez in goal a good shout this week?

      1. sunzip14
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Who is another option? If we are talking about best keeper for this week, definitely not.

        1. Zlatan F.C
            2 months, 3 days ago

            I haven't done a transfer but could do Forster to Pope. Just not sure this week or next gw

            1. sunzip14
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Would save a transfer in that case. I think Brighton will score. 2FTs will provide more flexibility in case of unexpected happenings.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Yep, will get Pope in next week with my 67m in the bank or what ever it is for my sub keeper.

          • 6 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          you know something we dont lad? I'd be playing Coufal and Dallas myself if I had that team.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

        a. Bruno
        b. Son
        c. Antonio

        Thanks in advance 🙂

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

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

          A first then C.
          Son & TOT are not in-form & Son always finds it hard to score against the low-block defence.

        4. the dom 1

        • 8 Years

        Coufal or TAA first defensive sub?

        Or should I play one of them over Dier?

        Cheers

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

            Kane to be back first out of his injured players but didnt confirm if it would be this week.

          After holding him I sold for Bamford yesterday.

          City next where his heatmap will place him just behind Lloris of he starts.

          Many posting stats saying he takes a while to get back to form after injuries.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

        My transfer this week is de Gea -> Pope.

        1. Mr. O'Connell

          Think I've got you beat. Holding > Mee and benching Mee.

          I was weighing up Fabianski to Steer after a good BB recently.

          But decided to shift Dier for Shaw and looking at punting against Salah to Raphinha.

          Captain Son or Antonio?

          Fulham have tightened up

            They have. I don’t think it’ll be easy for Antonio.

            Son out of form..I’d say Bruno

            Woke up this morning to find out that last night I've brought in Rashford for Salah, benched DCL and captained Antonio...

            Historically my alcohol fuelled decisions were bit of a mixed bag but have to say feel pretty confident about above.

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years

            Just realised that my mini league leader don’t have Son. I think I have to cap him now. Huge turnaround if Son hauls.

            1. Make United Great Again
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Too early to play like this. Were you going to captain Son before realising the leader didn’t have him?

                • 2 Years

                I was thinkig Antonio as my captain.

            Do we agree with scout picks best front 3 this week:

            Antonio, Bamford, Wilson?

            Any other shouts? Werner perhaps??

            In a good predicament with transfers.
            2ft 6.7 itb
            8 players on doubles atm
            A) McCarthy to Pope (A doubler for a doubler but soton have more upcoming doubles) Could get a soton defender in a couple weeks if they show likely improvement
            B) Martinez to Pope and lose 0.4 value (bought him at 4.5) Can always buy back
            C) Justin to Mee and lose 0.4 value (bought him at 4.5) Can always buy back or get Periera later
            D) Adams to Ings but then nightmare benching today and would probably bench DCL

            Leaning towards A or D. Will save 2nd transfer

            Captain Antonio over Son.
            Playing Digne over Stones.
            Playing Salah over DCL.

            How many of those do you agree with?

              Talk me through Digne over Stones

              1. Camzy

                It's Lucas Digne. He has 7 assists in 12 games - best attacking threat in the league.

                Everton are totally capable of pulling off a win and Digne has a much higher ceiling than Stones imo (no KdB, no good set piece delivery for Stones).

                So if I'm wrong, worst case Digne gets 1 and Stones gets 6.

                But flipside, if I bench Digne, it could be Stones 2, Digne 12.

            Opinions on whether to play bench boost or any changes to first 11?
