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.

    Have 1ft-

    A) 9.9 mil to spend on a midfielder, I already have Bruno son raphina and gundo

    B) Use ft to bring in alonso

    Thoughts ???

  2. yiidddoo
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Is anyone else avoiding mount due to his England involvement and Porto next week ?

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      England had 3 easy games against semi-amatuers, barely had to break any sweat.

      I'm playing Mount.

      1. yiidddoo
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Haha understandable, I’ve punted on alonso playing instead tho

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Ha

      The team news tab has him benched too - must be a risk there and also a cameo on the cards

  3. Ha.
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Not sure what to do here. 1FT and likely WC next gameweek.

    Martinez
    Dallas, Azpi, Cresswell
    Gundo, Bruno, Salah, Son
    Watkins, DCL, Kane (c)

    Meslier Cancelo ESR Stones

    Salah > Raph?

  4. Jebiga
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Who to bench:

    1. Bale

    or

    2.Gundogan

    ?

    1. Jet5605
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      High probability both are benched but Bale more likely to return against weaker opposition

  5. Zlatan F.C
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Is it worth doing Bale to Son for a hit before my GW31 wc or should I just play

      A) coufal
      B) cancelo
      C) lookman

    • Jet5605
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Which GK plays?

      A - Martinez
      B - Forster

      1. Shack
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        B - I fancy Mitro for a goal. Any help below?

    • Shack
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Hi all, fancy another pre-GW31 WC question, well you are in luck.......on FT, others will play, which one or two (for a hit) would you pick for a one seeker;
      A: Gundo > Son
      B: Auba > Son
      C: Cancelo > Mount
      Cheers!!

      1. Ha.
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        B

      2. Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I like C and think Mount could return against WBA

    • Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Looking at week 31 wildcard and have come up with this:

      Schmeichel Meslier
      TAA Tierney Coady Rudiger Christiansen
      Salah Fernandes Son Maddison Neto
      Kane Iheanacho Davis

      Thoughts? My plan would be to do Son to Jota in 33 which will give around 2.6 to upgrade Davis or Iheanacho if needed.

    • My neck my back my Saed Kol…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Bench one.

      A) Che Adams
      B) Gundogan
      C) Watkins

      1. Ha.
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        A

    • Louis Van Gaalstones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      The one stat that's putting me off captaining Raphinha is that he's only had one double digit haul all season, whereas Kane (or even Bamford) have had multiple

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Just posted much the same

        The other stat that does slightly bother me is that he's been notably poorer home than away. That pitch might explain that.

    • camarozz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Would you play

      A) Dawson
      B) Coady?

    • It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Why is everyone getting rid/benching Bale? 36 points in his last five games.

      1. Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Son is better

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Might not start

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Gundo more likely to start?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            A bit more likely to but he did play a full 270 mins in the IB

      3. Saosin
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Said he's in Tottenham just to get fit enough to go and play Real again. Don't quote me on that but something like that.

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah, probably not something Mou loves but they need to win nevertheless. CL more important than principles.

      4. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Another way of looking at this is he has totalled 3 points in 3 of the last 5 🙂

      5. TB303
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        World class player hope he plays

    • Bishopool
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      a) keep and play Sterling
      b) Sterling -> Mount
      c) Sterling -> Neto
      d) Sterling -> Jota
      e) keep, bench him and play Gundo

      1. Tinkermania
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Keep and pay

    • Jet5605
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Which GK starts? Already have Konsa for Villa in defence

      A - Martinez (FUL)
      B - Pope (sou)

    • Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Is there even a point in keeping Bale? Even if he has double GW, probably he will play in only 1 game anyway. To be honest I can't see it.

    • Bishopool
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Who to bench?

      a) Cancelo
      b) Dier

    • FPLMACKEM
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 19 days ago

      McCarthy
      Stones, Coufal, Cancelo
      Bruno, Salah, Gundogan, Raphina
      Kane (c), Bamford, Antonio

      Forster, Bale, Dunk, Veltman

      1ft 0 itb

      Not very confident with this team.

      Anything worth a hit here? Possibly looking at adding son and Rudiger

      1. TB303
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Why this team is very good !

        1. FPLMACKEM
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Defence is a bit of a concern. As is Bales minutes.

    • sergioaguero67
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Bench one

      A) Lingard ( Wolves away)
      B) Raphina (SHU home)

      Please help

        • 5 Years

        So you have Antonio and or Bamford? If one but the other then have 1 West Ham and 1 Leeds to cover your bases

    • Oggle22
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Ewt worth a -4/-8 for Chelsea/Everton defender maybe or DCL

      Martinez
      Konsa Dallas Cancelo
      Son Bale Raphina Lingz Bruno
      Kane(c) Bamford

      Steele Antonio Stones Dunk

      Cheers

        I've gone Bamford

      • 5 Years

      What’s our thoughts on Reguilon for a one week punt before WC? Not keen on anymore Chelsea defenders as I have 2, and also have Dallas. Will he outscore Shaw?

    • Fantasy man on the top
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 19 days ago

      who to start?

      Defenders:
      A) Cancelo
      B) Azpi

      Midfield:
      1) Bale
      2) Gundo

          I have the same choice. Is Bale likely to start?

    • citizenkane
      • 2 Years

      Would you BB this lot? Still have WC available.

      Martinez

        I’m obsessing over doing Konsa > Chelsea Def for a -4.

        I have Martinez too.

        Should I leave it?

      • Tomerick

        Play Cresswell and bank a transfer or bring in a Chelsea defender? If so which one? I’m leaning towards Azpilicueta.

        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Any chance we know the Chelsea XI before the deadline??

        Planning to BB by selling Gundo + Stones > Lingard + Rudiger (can't afford more than 4.8 defender).

        Rudiger getting benched because of playing full 90mins in 3 games over the IB would be a disastrous start to the GW. Should I get Coufal instead?

        1. Tango74
            2 months, 19 days ago

            BB after IB risky as any player could be rested
