The Fantasy Flutter: Betting odds on Blank Gameweek 36 Premier League action



Sponsored by bet365


Blank Gameweek 36 may be seven fixtures down on its predecessor but the matches themselves are arguably more attractive in Fantasy terms.

Newly crowned champions Manchester City are away at a porous Newcastle United, the two Merseyside teams face relegated outfits, and Tottenham Hotspur look forward to a meeting with a comfortably mid-table Wolverhampton Wanderers side who might as well be dusting down their snorkels and factor 50 sun cream.

And we’ll be wagering a few modest-sized punts on some of these upcoming Premier League games in this weekly betting piece, with the odds provided by our official sportsbook partner, bet365.

If you’re doing likewise, we urge you to gamble responsibly and always remember: when the fun stops, stop.

BRUCEY BONUS

City’s title party got underway on Tuesday with pizzas and dancing and the festivities could well continue tonight at the spiritual home of boozed-up stag dos.

But in this article, of course, it’s less the Bigg Market and more the win markets (sorry) that we’re interested in.

Newcastle have been generous hosts all season.

The Magpies have kept only one clean sheet on their own turf, which unsurprisingly is the worst record in the division.

They’re without a shut-out home or away in the past two months, while they have conceded at least two goals in five of their last seven games.

City have been excellent on their travels, by contrast, and will surely be back at something approaching full strength after run-outs for fringe players in Gameweek 35.

Full strength seems to include Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez, these days.

Foden is 5/1 to score first at St James’ Park, with Mahrez exactly the same price.

Sergio Aguero is far from first choice nowadays but there are plenty of sentimental saps like ourselves who are tempted by a nostalgic, end-of-season punt on the Argentine in FPL.

He’s 8/11 to score at any time tonight, whether he starts or makes a cameo appearance off the bench.

Should he make Pep’s line-up and those glass hamstrings break before half-tike, bet365 will refund stakes on selected markets for new and eligible customers.

Newcastle will be hoping that City are still a little worse for wear after their impromptu midweek celebrations.

They’ve been in excellent attacking form themselves of late, hitting four goals past third-place Leicester City a week ago.

Joe Willock is in sensational nick, scoring in four successive games.

And because of the calibre of opposition on Friday, his first goalscorer price is way bigger than what it ought to be.

The loanee is an eye-catching 22/1 to open the scoring against City.

And you can even get 7/4 on him registering just one (or more) shot on target, never mind finding the back of the net.

GULL-IBLE

Brighton will be without Lewis Dunk and very likely Joel Veltman this weekend, which should make West Ham’s life a bit easier given that the Seagulls are a very decent defensive unit.

It’ll also be music to the ears of Michail Antonio, who has been directly involved in 14 goals in his last 13 away Premier League starts (11 goals, three assists).

The West Ham forward is a generous 11/2 to score first at the Amex, which are actually longer odds than a regressing Jesse Lingard (9/2).

Albion are without Dunk (and Neal Maupay) because of suspension, of course.

And should you fancy a repeat of last week’s farce at Molineux, it’s 9/2 for there to be a red card.

PAYING (OUT ON) THE PENALTY

It’s not just red cards or shots on target that you can bet on with bet365.

A whole array of markets are available for each game, from corners to offsides.

In this VAR-crazy season, there’s also the potential for punts on penalties.

Liverpool were denied a spot-kick on Thursday night after intervention from the Stockley Park meddlers but they may get another stab at an effort from 12 yards this weekend.

That’s because no club has conceded more penalties than West Brom (nine) this season.

A spot-kick for either club in Sunday’s clash at the Hawthorns is 7/4, while Liverpool to score a penalty is 5/2.

Something else that caught our eye in this fixture was Mbaye Diagne to score first at 14/1. Given Liverpool’s problems at centre-half (as evidenced on Thursday) and the fact that Albion are behind only the Reds themselves for goals scored in their last six matches, Diagne’s price looks decent.

And by placing an each-way first goalscorer bet, bet365 punters are essentially covering their behinds if their nominated player fails to break 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.

          a) nacho -> bamford

          c) zaha -> son

            Zaha to Son for -4 should come good over the remaining 3 GWs

        • Tower Bridge
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Have a comfortable lead in ML but no Goalkeeper with Mendy/Forster combo. Nearest rival has Forster/McCarthy. Is it worth a -4 to copy and defend or even get in a different keeper????

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Would you consider Mendy > Ederson?

          2. winchester
              1 month, 3 days ago

              confirmed that forster will not play?

              • 3 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Not worth it imo -4, Mendy should play the remaining two games

            Wildcarding for last 3. Thoughts?

            Any pressers before the deadline?

            Is this FH team G2G?

            Pickford
            TAA Digne Walker
            Mahrez Foden Bale Jota Salah (c)
            Kane DCL

              Not sure I would have Jota on FH - risk he is benched

              1. PogBruno

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                He is the 2nd most fav to score for the GW after Salah, according to the bookies, hence the risk

            2. Eastman
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Yes

          6. Muzzy
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            a) Bamford & Dawson
            b) Antonio & Alioski

          7. Eastman
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Stones and Mahrez to start?

            1. DangerFC
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              I would expect so. I am getting both for my FH. But who knows...

          8. Mr Ozil
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Mendy > Lloris for -4 (other keeper is Forster)

            worth it or not?

          9. DangerFC
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Have trent already.

            1.robbo
            2. Bamford
