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.

      Who's been taking WHU's penalties recently - Rice or Lingard?

      1. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Lingard took last one but didn't look good so might be someone else next.

        Rice is on them apparently- when Noble isn’t on the pitch

        1. Original Pirate Material
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          This is more accurate.

      3. Original Pirate Material
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Rice definitely on them, Moyes said so.

      Morning, good luck everyone

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

      1) KDB
      2) Bruno
      3) Havertz
      4) Play Auba

      1. The_FF_King
        • 8 Years

        I would play Auba. Anything can happen with Liverpool defence

      Good morning. Hope everyone enjoyed the break.

      Should I do

      Bale ➡️ Son or

      Havertz ➡️ Raphina/Lingard

      Thanks.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Why would you get rid of Havertz? I'm thinking of bringing him in!

    10. gooberman

      My team looks so good on paper this week. I just hope the players read the script and do what they are supposed to do!

    11. Fernando Torres
      • 9 Years

      If bench boosting...

      Would you transfer Gundo and Stones out for hits?

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years

        Depends who for.

        1 FT and 3.2 ITB.

        Considering using BB, would appreciate any thoughts.

        Shaw Stones Dallas
        Bruno Gundo Son Raphinha
        Bamford Antonio Kane

        (Pope Lingard Coufal Dunk)

        Would use my 1 FT on Dunk, possibly to a Chelsea defender but could be anyone with WC planned for GW31.

        Or should I just transfer Dunk to Alonso/Azpi and play over Stones?

        1. Captain Kakaroto (I blame R…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          Yea with Stones and Gundo at your team it’s a risk to BB. Can see both in bench (Laporte rested, Gundo played 270).
          Do you have another plan for BB?

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            Absolutely no idea what to do with it tbh.

        2. citizenkane
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          I'm in similar position, BB left, plan to WC31.

          The dilemma is when to BB later on? 32 is possible, but I feel like planning the WC around the BB may potentially compromise the strength of the WC. With the BB out of the way, can spread funds around more freely.

      • Hryszko

          Hey Guys

          Gundog to Son for free??

          Was going to get a Chelsea defender but can’t decide which one is safe.

          Rest of the team looks great.

                  Ofcourse you could be right and Bamford blanks. Don't let the crowd steer your decisions too much.

                    Thanks all, much appreciated. I'm hovering over Bale at the moment (he'll be out next week anyway).

            Thoughts on the United vs Brighton game? Do you think Brighton can continue their good defensive play? Is Bruno the best captain for this fixture or you are captaining Kane?

              I’m captaining Kane because of Newcastle

              Expect it to be low scoring 2-1 United. Kane should score in a 2-0 Spurs win.

              I’m going with Alonso this GW but the Leeds boys could do well too.

                Why Alonso? Are not afraid he will be benched for Chilwell?

                If you predict 2 goals for United shouldn't you consider Bruno for captain? He's also involved in most of United's goals.

              Getting nervous about being on Raph

              One double digit haul all season and behind Jack Harrison for points in the season. Kane away hasn't been much cop at all since GW5 and Mou approach makes that look no accident.

              Slowly edging to Bruno camp

            Correct first XI and bench order?

            Martinez
            Cancelo/Digne/Dallas
            Bruno/Son/Bale/Gundo
            Kane/Bamford/Watkins

            Bench: Messlier, Dias, B.Traore, Veltman

            Who first on bench?

            A) Watkins (FUL h)
            B) Cresswell (WOL a)

            Most likely wildcarding next gw, so for a 1 week punt who is the better pick, Rudiger or Christensen? I know Rudiger played a lot of minutes during Internationals so could be rested

            Planning to WC in 31. Which move looks best?

            A - Bale > Son (and bench a tired Gundo)
            B - Dunk > Azpi

            Martinez
            Dallas - Konsa - Coufal
            Bruno - Gundo - Lingard - Raph
            Bamford - DCL - Kane

            Pope - Bale - Stones - Dunk

            Anyone checked the team news tab on here

            Prediction for Jota Bale Stones and Gundo all benched 🙂

              Got real headache picking my team today, City is are the main reason.
              Their CS or not will be pivotal.

            Alonso is coming in for one of these three today before WC next week. The remaining two will be on my bench. Who do I ship out? I'll likely need at least one good playing sub with Gundo starting for me...

            A. Stones
            B. Coufal
            C. Cancelo

            A) Bale -> xxx and BB this week
            B) Save BB until after WC

            Original plan was A) but have doubts over Stones & Bale starting.

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

            Bank 0.0m, 1FT, WC, BB & FH chips left

              A seems risky.

              Also do you think Gundo starts? I'm contemplating BBing with Gundo as well.

              3 months, 29 days ago

              Pick 3 to start
              1) Digne
              2) Stones
              3) Dallas
              4)Cresswell
              5) Targett

              Thanks
