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.

              [1] Rudiger Bale Gundo Stones may have limited/no minutes
              [2] Triple Cresswell Lingard Antonio triple WHU could be brilliant but could be problematic low scoring game with WOL

              More bookie-based bullshit. Between this and the Pro Pundit fluff we rarely get a worthwhile read these days.

                What you say is fair but it’s only one article like this a week and you don’t even have to read it or give it a second of your time

              1 FT this week, but transfer is for long term:
              A. Bale > Son, play Konsa
              B. Veltman > Azpi, bench Konsa
              C. Both (-4)

              I'm actually tempted by Azpilicueta. Maybe even for Dias? What do you think? Can you see some rotation introduced by Tuchel because of the Champions League games?

              1. pingissimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 25 days ago

                There's CL and also Thiago back

                Tuchel doesn't rotate much in that spot apparently but he's got a lot of options for resting players now

                1. Sgt Frank Drebin
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 25 days ago

                  Do you think there is someone that should play all 3 games before GW33? Their fixtures couldn't be better from a defensive perspective in my opinion.

                  1. pingissimus
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    3 months, 25 days ago

                    Great fixtures no doubt

                    We're all guessing here clearly. The one I might go for is actually Thiago as he is the CB with most attacking threat. Do like my defenders to have a chance at both ends. Don;t have the bench for Alonso

              2. Steve The Spud
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 25 days ago

                I’ve brought him in, rotation maybe but most people have a bench full of players like coufal, souceck, dunk, dallas etc which are all nailed and have points potential so hopefully it’s worth it

                1. pingissimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 25 days ago

                  Absolutely fair

                  It's also not as if Chelsea need a very green fixture for a cs. It doesn't make too much odds which one he might miss from that point of view - provided you have a back up with a reasonable fixture. Attacking points are a long shot with him too.

                  Salah or you shouldn’t have him. You dont bench players of that value

                Bench one?

                A Bale
                B Gundogan
                C Antonio

                  Oooh tricky...
                  Play Bale (may not get minutes anyway)
                  Toss up on other two

                Just can’t decide! Play:

                A. Bale
                B. Gündogan

                  Really tough one! I changed my answer as I was typing. Just flip a coin

                  Have pretty much the same dilemma (see above) think I'm edging towards starting Bale now.

                GTG?

                Martinez
                Cancelo Digne(vc) Shaw
                Gundo Bruno Salah Son(c) Soucek
                Antonio Bamford

                Steer Maja Pereira Mitchell

                I have 3.2itb and 1ft.
                Still got WC and TC to play! Thinking I will WC next week so no point rolling a transfer?? Maja to DCL is looking likely and then benching Soucek. Anyone I am badly missing? Would like Lingard but not keen on 3 WHU...

                Thoughts please?

                Cheers!

                Current 11. Thinking McCarthy >> Mendy for a hit and bench boosting? Or bench too weak? Will WC soon

                Bruno, Son, Lingard, Raphina

                  I'd be tempted by Mendy and the BB

                    I like Son, Bam & Raph amongst the many

                  Still on Raph but beginning to haver

                  If I move off him it will be to Bruno as the double digit king
