The Bookie’s Team: Game Week 30

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 30. This post will review our changes and reason as to why we brought them in.

A great score last week of 58 see’s us move up to 7,040th. With all of our chips left things are looking good (Sorry for Jinx).

Two transfers for this week left a lot to think about due to the blank’s and double gameweeks coming. Our plan is to use the FREE HIT in gameweek 31 so the expectancy of points for transfers was based on this gameweek and also gameweek 32.  We opted for the following Sead Kolasinac OUT and  Trent Alexander-Arnold IN. Tough fixtures for Arsenal and with Monreal back it’s unknown if Kolasinac place is nailed. An absolute no brainer of a transfer. Our other choice was  Víctor Camarasa OUT and bringing in David Brooks. Brooks is just back from injury and played 70 minutes last week and it’s expected he starts.

Our expected points is 57.02 a Liverpool clean sheet and a Salah goal could very much see us on our way to hitting this expectancy.

Best Starting XI

Artur Boruc Expected Points 3.48

Andy Robertson Expected Points 5.01

Shane Duffy  Expected Points 3.56

Trent Alexander Arnold(VC) Expected Points 5.38

James Maddison Expected Points 4.54

Paul Pogba Expected Points 4.12

Mohamed Salah (C) Expected Points 14.08

Diogo Jota Expected Points 3.43

David Brooks Expected Points 3.89

Aubameyang Expected Points 4.54

Jamie Vardy Expected Points 4.99

Our bench is:

Lukasz Fabianski Expected Points 3.37

Matt Doherty Expected Points 3.35

Raul Jimenez Expected Points 3.25

Jan Bednarek Expected Points 3.11

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

    I never knew it was an actual team. I had always thought it was a FH team each week.

    I know it’s so late into the season but I hope you guys will do this next season too so I can use as a guide. I am OR 144k.

    I wish I had known about you guys earlier

      Hi mate, unlikely we do it again next season! Our goal was the top 1% and we’re likely to get it with our chips left!
