The Fantasy Flutter: Betting odds on the Gameweek 38 Premier League action



Sponsored by bet365


A season that featured 11 Gameweeks with a blank, six Double Gameweeks and a Triple Gameweek comes to a close today with a final-day 10-match bonanza.

European qualification places are the only thing left to settle in the Premier League but from a Fantasy perspective, there are overall ranks and mini-leagues to play for.

And there’s plenty of crossover between FPL and this regular betting feature as we’ll be wagering a few modest punts on some of the end-of-season gambles that many of us Fantasy managers are considering in Gameweek 38.

All the odds, as ever, are provided by our official sportsbook partner, bet365.

If you’re having a flutter this weekend, we urge you to gamble responsibly and always remember: when the fun stops, stop.

GAMEWEEK 38 MATCH ODDS

There are some intriguing prices listed above in bet365‘s full-time result market.

The bookies have certainly cottoned on to the fact that Manchester United may have a second-string XI out at Molineux as it’s not often you can get 2/1 on the Red Devils to win any match.

An in-form Newcastle United at 12/5 also catches the eye, with Fulham owners of the division’s worst home record in 2020/21.

Tottenham Hotspur are available at the same price and face a Leicester side who have drawn or lost as many games as they have won on home soil this season.

I SWEAR YOU’LL NEVER SEE ANYONE LIKE HIM EVER AGAIN

Thanks for the memories and the 25-point haul against Newcastle United in 2015/16, Sergio Aguero.

The City striker will depart for pastures new after Gameweek 38 and there’ll be plenty of sentimental saps like ourselves who are tempted by a nostalgic, end-of-season punt on the Argentinean in FPL – and with the bookies.

He’s 10/3 to score first and 5/6 to find the net at any time against Everton, whether he starts or makes a cameo appearance off the bench.

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

EASY MANE

FPL managers will be flocking to Mohamed Salah in their droves for Liverpool’s clash with Crystal Palace today.

But Sadio Mane is a potentially explosive differential pick in the same fixture.

The Liverpool winger has scored in seven consecutive Premier League games against Crystal Palace. In the league’s history, only Robin van Persie (against Stoke City) has scored in eight consecutive matches against an opponent.

Mane is 7/2 to break the deadlock agaainst the Eagles, with Salah narrower at 2/1.

You’d even make your money back with an each-way punt on Mane, providing he finds the back of the net at some point on Sunday.

Mane is also 11/8 to have more than 1.5 shots on target, meanwhile, a market that is available under the ‘Specials’ tab of selected matches.

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.

GO FOURTH AND MULTIPLY (YOUR TV REVENUE)

Going back to our introduction, if you do fancy a punt on a team qualifying for next season’s Champions League, then Liverpool (1/9) and Chelsea (1/7) are unsurprisingly overwhelming favourites.

With the Blues away at an Aston Villa side that can beat anyone on their day, though, Leicester City (9/4) could yet pounce.

As for individual bragging rights, Salah is the odds-on favourite (8/13) to seal the Golden Boot.

Liverpool’s favourable fixture would explain that but Harry Kane (6/5) will be hoping that Leicester need goals aplenty in their desperate top-four tilt and open up some space at the back as a consequence.

    Watkins->Bamford for free a no brainer?

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I would think so.

    2. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      On paper yes, as to whether the transfer could be used better elsewhere is another question

      1. ebb2sparky
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yes. I think Bruno to Mane is what I'll do instead. But I do have triple utd

    3. arndff_
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yes.

    4. The Senate
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yep

  2. paulfantham

    I need a nervous poo

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      That's what happens when you have a fantasy flutter!

    2. Perthite
      • 10 Years

      Tip - make sure you go to the toilet before you do.

  3. Rolls-Royce
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Gut been saying captain Raphinia for the whole week, mind says that's just foolish to go against Liverpool and Salah's form.

    1. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Salah is all but guaranteed to score, so keep it simple and captain him

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Indeed.

  4. altomfredrik
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Start Zaha or JWP?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Jwp

  5. The Senate
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Worth the hit to fund Shaw to Robbo instead of Shaw to Phillips? Have TAA

    1. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No from me

    2. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Not worth a hit. You're losing the clean sheet points

  6. Gandalf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Lost on last thread:

    If prioritise DCL > Bamford (to cover highest risk threat),

    A. Play Holding
    B. Take a -4 to get Raphinha starting instead

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A

  7. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    We need to get the economy going again and support struggle businesses, make a bet with Bet365

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      You certainly are a spud.

    2. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yep. In the aftermath of a global pandemic, spunking all your cash on jebbison to score first is certainly the way forward.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Haha, my sentiments exactly

    3. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Fantasy is a gateway into gambling iv apparently, least they want it to be!

  8. LewanGOALski
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    if chasing 20 pts for 1st place but at the same time defending 5point lead ahead of 3rd, should I risk or not risk with (C)..?

  9. Gerci
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    A) Son + Rashford

    B) Zaha + Mane

    1. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B. No idea if rashford plays

  10. how now brown cow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Morning all. Chasing a 10 point lead and need some differentials. Anything here worth it? All would be a -4.

    A - Coady, son -> coufal, mane (benching castagne)

    B - coady, son -> robbo, raphinha

    C - son, greenwood -> mane, raphinha

    C

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Like C if we get news Greenwood is benched.

  11. Rolls-Royce
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Any rumors of Jota starting gonna put cat amongst the pigeons, as a matter of fact, I still have him and might just start him because he can even do some damage off the bench.

  12. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Martinez
    TAA Rudiger Coufal
    Salah Greenwood Lingard Raphinha
    Kane DCL Antonio
    (Guaita - Digne - Shaw - Jota*)

    IF we get team news that Greenwood is benched what transfers would you make here?

    A) DCL & Jota ➡️ Bamford & Mount -4
    B) DCL & Shaw ➡️ Bamford & Dallas -4
    C) Kane & Jota ➡️ Bamford & Mane -4
    D) Jota ➡️ Mount
    E) Shaw ➡️ Dallas

    Will start DCL in option C, D & E.

    1. arndff_
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      DCL > Bamford is a lock for me.

      Then if Greenwood is benched -> Jota > Mount or Shaw > Dallas.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yup I think I'm leaning that ways too. Those transfers look sensible.

    2. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Greeny prolly starts as a striker imo. I don't see any other alternative there because Cavani needs a rest and Martial is unfit.

      E

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yes if we get no teams or it is confirmed Greenwood will start I'll just DCL to Bamford for free.

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          GL

  13. arndff_
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Who would you start today?

    a) Shaw
    b) Holding

    1. The Senate
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A but he’ll probably be rested

      1. arndff_
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        If he's benched, hope he won't come in at all.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Holding. Shaw will be rested imo.

    3. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B

  14. Make United Great Again
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Might as well go Bamford (C)? ML leader will go Salah..

    1. tbos83
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yep, worth a punt

    2. Wayne Enterprises
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Dangerous to go without Bamford?
      Was thinking for a -4
      Jota > Raphina
      Rodrigo > Nacho

      Mendy

      AWB Coufal TAA (Aina Llorente)

      Greenwood Bale Salah Mahrez

      Kane Antonio

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

      I think the Liverpool game could become quite tight if they don’t get an early goal, if it’s 0-0 after half an hour I don’t see it being high scoring

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Indeed, but an early goal would probably mean a bloodbath. Scared, as I only own Salah.

    4. Mr_Barbs
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Would make any changes?

      Martinez
      TAA, Dallas, Robbo
      Mane(c), Son, Greenwood, Foden
      Kane, Iheanacho, Bamford

      Fabri, Lingard, Dunk, Struijk

      1. tbos83
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Think I'd start Lingard over Foden

          1. Mr_Barbs
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Hmm yeah, worried slightly about Foden/Greenwood minutes

      2. POTATO
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Salah, Lingard, Son, Greenwood, Sigurdsson

        Bench Sigurdsson and replace Greenwood for free (up to £7.8M)?

      3. Foozeball
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I've got a pair of rather uninspiring gks to choose from

        A) Henderson

        B) Areola

        1. how now brown cow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          A

      4. Gustavo
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Foden expected minutes?

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

          I think he might start of if not come on for 30, if I had him, I would be keeping/starting. Any help below?

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

        Morning all, last question of the season….
        Which Leeds player to go for (and who would go);
        A: Bamford (DCL)
        B: Rapha (El Ghazi)
        C: Dallas (Digne)
        Those which I don’t sell will be on my bench likely to come on.
        Thanks and good luck to all!

      6. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Areola / Martinez
        TAA Dallas Coufal / Shaw* Mitchell*
        Salah Ralph Son Lingard / Bruno*
        Kane Wood Nacho

        2FT 0.6ITB

        These transfers are tough as the team looks ok. My Rival has Bamford and he’s chasing so I want to get him to block but unsure of who to sell, Wood?

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I could do
          Marty to Mendy
          Wood to Bamford

      7. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Morning Fellas. I'm chasing 14 points and I have 2 FTs. What transfers can I make to maximise my chances of getting that? Thank you.

        1.3 ITB

        Forster
        TAA | Rudiger | Dallas
        Salah | Lingard | Foden | Greenwood
        Antonio | Kane | Cavani

        GK: Martinez | Zaha | Digne | Veltman

      8. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        What are the chances of Sterling playing? Can be an ultra differential.

      9. kysersosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Grateful for your help:

        A) mane in for Bruno
        B) Antonio/Wood in for Benteke

        (Have Salah and Trent)

        TIA

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          A

        Any west brom fans around here?

      11. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Bruno to mane for a -4 or just start azpi instead of Bruno (double Chelsea defence in that case)

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Not chasing anything, need a decent week to finish in the top 500k 🙂

      12. tbos83
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Is Dallas worth a -4?

          1. Foozeball
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            I don't think so. Leeds defense could be a lot weaker without Llorente

        • Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          A. Mane + Bamford combo over B. Auba + Pepe?

          Also, keep and start 1. Greenwood or 2. Maddison?

        • camarozz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Presuming Bale will be benched whom would u rather play here?

          A) JWP v WHU

          B) Digne v City?
