The Fantasy Flutter: Betting odds on the Gameweek 30 Premier League action


Sponsored by bet365


The fixtures seem almost too good to be true in Gameweek 30, with Leeds United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa – teams whose players many of us will already own in Fantasy Premier League – all enjoying plum fixtures.

And it’s from these ‘bankers’ (if only that were true) that we’ll be having a small, sensibly staked punt this weekend.

We’ll be again turning to the odds provided by our official sportsbook partner, bet365, to wager a bet on the Premier League action over Easter.

As ever, we urge you to gamble responsibly and always remember: when the fun stops, stop.

BAGGIES TROUSERED

Take a dip into the Twitter bubble and it seems like every man and his dog is championing Marcos Alonso for Chelsea’s Saturday lunchtime kick-off against West Bromwich Albion.

The cult FPL hero has had more comebacks than Frank Sinatra and refuses to go away, seeing off manager after manager who fails to tap into his Fantasy potential.

He is certainly thriving under Thomas Tuchel and while he’s a considerable rotation risk in any given match, his non-involvement at international level and Ben Chilwell’s midweek run-out for England may well tip the balance in favour of the Spaniard this weekend.

Alonso has had more penalty box touches and shots in the opposition area than any other FPL defender in their last six matches, so it seems like he’s due one of his bi-annual hauls.

He’s 14/1 to grab the first goal against Sam Allardyce’s troops, with an anytime goal available at 9/2.

By placing an each-way first goalscorer bet, bet365 punters are essentially covering their behinds if their nominated player fails to break the deadlock.

Placing an each-way first goalscorer bet in this case means that any goal that the wing-back does score will return 14/3, even if one of his teammates or a Baggie has previously broken the deadlock.

Each Way First Goalscorers

Place an Each Way First Goalscorer bet on any Soccer match.

If your player scores at any time during the game in 90 minutes play, we will pay you out at 1/3 odds for unlimited places.

WERNER BOTHERS

Sticking with Chelsea v West Brom, the only player we know who will start at Stamford Bridge is Timo Werner, with Thomas Tuchel confirming as much in his pre-match presser.

The German was being defended by his club manager on Friday, with the striker’s midweek horror miss while on national duty a source of much amusement.

You wouldn’t bank on him for a goal at the moment but bet365 don’t like the Werners of this world to feel left out, so there’s a market just for them.

The Chelsea striker is 11/8 to have more than 3.5 shots against West Brom, but it doesn’t matter if they are blocked at source, find Row Z or, heaven forbid, hit the back of the net – so long as they are identified as shots, they count.

He does have eight assists to his name this season, to his credit, and he is 5/2 with bet365 to register more than 0.5 assists this weekend.

SON TARGET

On a similar theme, the shots on target market is another one for fans of underlying stats.

We’re heading to Tyneside for this punt, as a sorry-looking Newcastle United side prepare to entertain a Tottenham Hotspur outfit who welcome back Son Heung-min from injury.

The Korean is 1/2 to have over 0.5 shots on target – in other words, one tame effort into the arms of Martin Dubravka is enough for bet365 to pay out.

Harry Kane has to record over 1.5 shots on target to reach his threshold but given that he has had more attempts (4.3 per match) than any other Premier League player in their last six outings, 5/6 is a reasonable price.

BRAZILIAN WAX LYRICAL

The Elland Road ice rink doesn’t seem to be affecting Raphinha‘s game, with the in-form Brazilian in scintillating form at present.

He has the best expected goal involvement of any FPL midfielder in their last six matches, with mostly profligate finishing from his teammates to blame for the three blanks that preceded Gameweek 29.

Fond of a shot as much as a key pass (he has had 15 efforts of his own in his last half-dozen outings), Raphinha is a tempting 6/1 to score the first goal against whipping boys Sheffield United this weekend.

A Leeds win and over 2.5 goals scored in that fixture is 13/10.

TREBLE WITHOUT A DRAW

Backing Spurs, Leeds and Chelsea to all win their Gameweek 30 fixtures to nil returns just over 11/1 with bet365.

And while we’re on the subject of accumulators, the more traditional ‘acca’ involving full-time results comes with a bonus with bet365 depending on the number of selections – the full details of which are below.


Soccer Accumulator Bonus

Up to 70% bonus for accumulators on a wide range of selected leagues and competitions. Applies to pre-match accumulators of 3+ selections on standard Full Time Result, Both Teams To Score or Result/Both Teams To Score markets only.

Bonus percentage is dependent on number of selections. Bonus capped at £100k and applied to returns. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply. New and eligible customers only.

      2) Bring in DCL for Antonio and bench Lingard?

      1. tom_p77

      Quick question, play one, bench one

      A. Salah v Arsenal (has a good record)
      B. Gund v Lei (in good form - scored for germ)

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 6 Years

        Play both.

        1. casual69
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          Current Team:

          Martínez
          Cresswell Rüdiger Dallas
          Bale Lingard Salah Raphinha
          Bamford Antonio Kane (c)

          Ederson Gündogan Stones Veltman

          1. ebb2sparky
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            I'd never bench Salah. Drop Bale if you want to play gundogan. I'm currently playing my city defender (cancelo) over Cresswell but it's a close call so might change my mind.

    • Neo-Viper

      Play AWB or Stones?

      Have Dias in the 11.

          • 6 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          Cheers. Stones will start for sure judging by Pep's comment on him but Leicester Away is putting me off. Ieahnacho will be raring to raise the bar against his former club.

      Bale - Son - Bruno - Raphinha (Güngogan)

      Some football facts that don’t sound real:

      - No English Manager has won the Premier league
      - Gabriel Jesus has scored more UCL goals than Zidane
      - Zidane was never offside in his career
      - Lingard is 28 years old
      - Giroud once played the whole game with zero touches

            I agree with you. I think it’s a coin toss between him and Digne. I’d still bench Antonio, Wolves are decent at the back tbh

              Have Lingard too, probably leaning that way.

              Can’t see United keeping a CS.. Shaw could be dependent on attacking returns

      Got a bit of a problem in that I have Stones, Gundogan & Mount who all played loads over internationals.

      Plan was to do Cancelo -> Alonso, play Mount and bench Gundogan and Stones.

      Do you think I should forget Alonso, play Cancelo v Leicester and upgrade Mount to a new midfielder? If so, who? 7.5m available for a midfielder

            That’s madness. Chilwell has every chance to start instead and Tuchel has subbed in Alonso few times before

              • 12 Years

              I would say a 10% chance having played twice for England, the fact it is West Brom, it’s at home, and Chilwell likely to start in Porto. And all the other choices are boring.
