Hi everyone, this is a weekly blog post where we document changes to our team based on bookie’s odds. Having done this last season we’d like to think we’ve learned from our mistakes and aim to finish higher than our top 7% finish. This is not a wildcard XI or a team of the best possible players, this is an actual team which we have had since GW1 and have made changes to throughout the season. With the introduction and warning away, no to introduce to you the bookie’s team for Game Week 13. This post will review our changes and reason as to why we brought them in.
Currently, we’re 327,400th in the world and aim to be in the top 1% by the end of the season. All with the help of the bookies. To view the team, click on the following link: OddsonFPLTeam

Last week we brought in two players on free transfers, Marko Arnautovic and Victor Camarasa, both flopped horrendously and garnered a whopping 4 points between them.
The expected points was 61.66 which you can see https://www.oddsonfpl.com/the-bookies-team-game-week-12-fpl/
Our side over performed getting a whopping 69 points, with our captain scoring 16 points, and our defence racking up 29 points, with the majority coming from Luiz and Alexander Arnold. Up front Danny Ings was taken off early but still managed to get 2 bonus points and an assist. Hazard looked like he could score at any point, but failed to do so as Chelsea drew 0-0 at home to Everton. Surprisingly our lowest ranked player Michael Keane scored 7 points away to Chelsea, its annoying when that happens, but realistically you’d be a nut to start him away in that fixture. While our transfers both failed to score or bring in many points, Arnie still scored 1 more point than Mitro, so we’ll count that as a win.
This week we once again have a host of players to choose from, with a lot of good fixtures to boot. The main issue we faced this week was injuries, with Danny Ings rated as a major doubt and Benjamin Mendy confirmed to be out for 10-12 weeks. This meant we could drop the expensive full back for one of this week’s highest rated players in Matt Doherty. The Irish wing back has some tasty fixtures lined up and will replace David Luiz in our starting lineup, with the Brazilian dropping to the bench. Salah is our captaincy selection once again this week with 12.58 expected points.
This week our expected points is 63.42
