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.

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.

      I am wanting to change my team so I can attack the new fixtures. Have no free hit or wildcard so I am thinking of taking -4 in this and next game week to set myself up for the next run of games. Which hits sound better or any other suggestions?

      Martinez

      Konsa Shaw Dallas

      Gundo Raphinia Bruno son KDB

      Kane Bamford

      Bench: Fabri Watkins Dias White

      1) GW30 - 4 White Konsa Martinez out for Rudiger Mendy Nat Phillips
      Gw31-4 Watkins and Raph for Ihenancho and Jota

      2) GW30- 4 Konsa Watkins White for Phillips Asp and Ihenacho
      GW31-4 Dallas and Raph for saka and Regulion

        2 months, 15 days ago

        It’s 1) for me tho I wouldn’t want to lose Raphinha under any circumstance with his current form as well as the fixtures they have coming up. With you already having KDB I’d do Watkins and Gundogan to iheanacho and Jota. This also reduces your exposure to BGW.

        The other thing to bear in mind with iheanacho is that if he doesn’t continue banging then in, he’ll be back on the bench by the time Barnes is fit. That said,I do have him in my team and think he will continue with his streak

            Son obviously. But you plan depend on whether you have WC or free hit I guess

              Yep. They looks solid and I’m backing it in

        • Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Martinez
          Shaw Cresswell Dias
          Son KDB Gundagon Bruno(vc) Lingard
          Kane(C) Bamford

          Forster, Maja, White, Mitchell.

          60 point lead to catch with 8 weeks left. Only got 4 players different from the leader. It’s looking tight.

          G2G?

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years

            Yes mate. You can do it.

          WC team, thoughts?

          Shaw Azpi Digne Coady Ayling
          Bruno Jota Son Lingard Raph
          DCL Kane Bamford

          3.5 ITB

          My doubts:

          1 Digne -> Tierney/2nd Chelsea?
          2 Lingard -> Mount?

          1. Fiorentina

            Good team. No city??

            1. Fiorentina
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Bamford to Vardy?

            2. King Kun Ta
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              maybe KDB for this week.....but the fear of rotation holds me off.

          2. enrico.palazzo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Martinez fixtures poor, triple Leeds a lot as after this fixture there is not much joy

          3. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Don’t like the Digne pick. Better off with Dias or Cresswell

        • Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Thoughts on whether KDB will play against Leeds? That game is in between the 2 inportant games in Champions League, so I would say chances are pretty low. On the other hand KDB would probably be the best captain in that fixture (if he plays).

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Don’t think he does - it is the most bench able game for City assets in the next few matches

            1. Sgt Frank Drebin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Yeah looks like it. There's no point in keeping KDB I guess

          2. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Logically he should be benched but I suspect he plays

            Leeds is a dangerous fixture - they are quite capable of beating City. I'd suggest Villa is the likely benching.

            1. Sgt Frank Drebin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              For me both fixtures look benchable to be honest. AV game is in between FA Cup semi final and Carling Cup (or whatever it is called) final.

            2. mrelpea
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Pep did say that playing Leeds in between two CL games is the worst fixture for City. Part of that I take with a pinch of salt but he knows that Leeds can hurt them

              People benching city assets. Do you want them to score points?

                I want them to come on for a 1 point cameo.

                1. Tango74
                    2 months, 15 days ago

                    I’m the other way , I’ve started. My city assets, I’ve noticed PEP doesn’t bring them on at all if they benched.

                    Obv a gamble

                • 8 Years
                2 months, 15 days ago

                Play Martinez over Meslier. It’ll all end in tears

                1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 15 days ago

                  Meslier in much better form, playing the team who’ve scored 16 goals the entire season. He will start.

                        Think I'd put Targett first bench but it's a crap shoot really.

                        Defender for -4 is illogical but. I get the gamble for explosiveness....

                        Do you need to take a -4 who are you benching?

                      Is it worth getting in Azpi instead of Mee and benching Stones/Cancelo for -4?

                        Benching both Cancelo and Stones if I get Azpi

                        Not for a hit, play Stones. Can advice me below?

                      I guess the key to this GW is Leicester - City game.
                      Can City keep CS against foxes ? Last few games their defense haven't been as solid as earlier in the season.

                      Who to start between:
                      1) Targett vs Fulham
                      2) Dias vs lei
                      Clean sheet odds favor Dias a bit...

                        Always the stronger player for me to play- Dias

                        I think Fulham will score. Fighting for survival.
                        Start Dias.

                      Is Auba to one of the following worth a -4 and if so which one? Thanks!

                      Playing bench boost so need full 15 out.

                      Would you do either of these for a -4?

                      A) Cancelo > Alonso
                      B) Gundogan > Grealish/Mount
                      C) neither
