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.

  5. Pat Bonner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    I should really resist temptation to get alonso...is this too much in defence? Alonso shaw regullion Dias targett

    1. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I'm going Alonso, might even captain

    2. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Not too much.

    3. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Is alonso a better pick than Azpi?

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Probably not but feels more fun

        1. Ibralicious
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          That I can get behind

    4. Aston VII iia hahaha
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Isn't Alonso too much of a rotation risk or is my understanding dated?

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        He is but strong bench means I can take the benchings. The risk is if he comes on for 1pters

        1. Aston VII iia hahaha
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          What do you think about Havertz as an emerging false 9 option?

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Think I prefer mount but maybe that’s my lack of trust of havertz after getting him gw1!

  6. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Best goalkeeper for the run in?

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Mendy

  7. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Torn on City assets starting. Stil, G2G? Bench order ok?

    Martinez
    Cancelo, Dallas, Coufal
    Bruno, Lingard, Son, Raphinha
    DCL, Kane(c), Bamford
    (Pope; Gundo, Stones, Mee)

  8. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Morning all, this is me. Good luck all!

    Martinez
    Digne Alonso(c) Dallas
    Son Lingard Gundogan Raphinha
    Kane Antonio Bamford

    Pope Bale Konsa Coufal

    1. manu4life99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Not tempted to bench Gundo?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Yeah for Bale, think I should?

        1. manu4life99
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Consensus seems Gundo gets rested so it depends if worth risking a cameo. Could make a case for all 3 of your subs to start this week (I have same Bale vs Dias vs Gundo dilemma)

    2. Cojones of Destiny
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      gtg MS GL!

  9. Fernando Torres
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Alonso or Azpi?

    1. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Alonso for one GW punt. Azpi until 38

  10. Ibralicious
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Final question of the GW. Who to bench between:

    A) Antonio
    B) Lingard
    C) Dias

    Cheers all and GL!

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I think Dias

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      C

    3. Ibralicious

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

  12. Pat Bonner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    How does this look? Benching 2 city players feels wrong

    Martinez
    Shaw alonso regullion
    Salah son lingard raphinha
    Bamford Kane Antonio

    Areola Dias targett gundogan

    1. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I’ll be doing the same, but looks great! Good luck!

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks. Trying to spread risk a bit with owning Martinez already

    4. Etern007
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Think Reggie is unlikely to play

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

    5. Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Best move here? BBing this week and WCing next week.

      A) Bale -> Rashford
      B) Auba -> Bruno(c)
      C) Stones -> Shaw/Rudiger

      Martinez, Pope
      Cancelo, Stones, Targett, Dallas, Coufal
      Auba, Son, Gundogan, Raphina, Bale
      Kane(c), Watkins, Bamford

      Bank 0.0m, 1FT

      1. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        B

      2. Cowboy John
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Bale's a problem, isn't he? I was planning to BB but don't really know what to do with him...

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Yeah, I don’t think he starts. Stones could easily be benched also. Reckon this team is still worth BBing?

          1. Cowboy John
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            You've got 3x City and Bale. I'd probably hold off on the BB if I were you. But, of course, we've got to use it sometime...

          2. Cowboy John
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            This is my team:

            Martinez, Pope
            Cancelo, Konsa, Dallas, Holgate, Coufal
            Bruno, Son, Raphinha, Bale, Soucek
            Kane, Antonio, Bamford

            £1.8 ITB, WC next week.

            Looking at maybe doing Holgate > Alonso.

    6. FantasyClub
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Is everyone thinking Villa keep a CS

        1. Couch Potato
          • 2 Years

          Yes (but I'm not everyone)

      • rnrd
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        If the PL accommodâtes a change to fixture to enable public attendance as Ben crellin says Am I wrong thinking united has a very high chance to blank in 36 and DOuble in 35?

      • buttsy9
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        What to do with this midfield?

        Auba, Smith-Rowe, Bale, JWP, Lingard

        Looking to get Son in and maybe one other.

        3.2m ITB

        1. Couch Potato
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Bale > Son

          1. buttsy9
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Seems the sensible move so why am I thinking Auba > Son and hoping Bale gets half an hour at Newcastle

          2. buttsy9
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Is Auba > Bruno worth it too for -4

          Like it. Get rid of Gundogan though, surely? Find a differential instead.

          1. Pukki Party
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            That means 0 ManCity, which could work? Lingard or Neto?

            1. Cowboy John
              • 9 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              Both decent options. Lingard probably has more upside?

            Play:

            A) Gundogan (lei)
            B) Bale (new)

            Currently on A with the hope of a no show if he doesn’t start

              Same issue with Gundo in the mix too (above).

              Nobody else you can bench?

                Antonio I guess and he comes in if Gundogan or Bale misses the whole game

                  I was on that a week ago. Definitely start Antonio. Go with the ceiling imo.

              I'm wondering over Salah and Gündogan for myself. I'm leaning towards playing Gündogan.
