EPL Daily Fantasy Sports Betting Tips: Week 1

On a weekly basis, I will be doing EPL Betting Tips.

I will not be posting them on SBT at least initially. You will be able to find them with full writeups over at BetSoccer.ca or if you are a member of our mailing list – we will send out exclusive picks there.

It’s completely free and Graeme has had two big winning weeks with the Scottish Premier League and CFL with those exclusive tips.

I do want to do SOME soccer content on here though and so on a weekly basis, myself and my friend Fraser will be collaborating on a team for daily fantasy sports each week and providing some insight here.

Fraser is very smart when it comes to soccer and uses a lot of advanced metrics, XG etc.

Fantasy EPL Rules:

There are 5 games this week on the Saturday which we will be entering. It lists the 5 3pm games so that won’t be factoring in Man Utd vs Leeds, or Norwich vs Liverpool.

We can pick two forwards, two midfielders, two defenders, a goalkeeper and a player in a utility role.

We will pick one forward, midfielder and defender each. We will rotate goalkeeper and utility each week. We both get to split the salary.

Here are our picks:

Fraser’s Fantasy EPL Picks

F – Kai Havertz. Got to go big, with this type of draft. Chelsea at home to Palace this weekend, is a banker 3 points, clean sheet and possibly a good few goals. Havertz started coming into this own at the end of the season and had good form for Germany in the Euros. 99% should start against Palace and is good for a goal.

M – James Ward Prowse. One of the scoring points is 0.7pts for a cross. That includes corners and set pieces. Need to add in a set piece specialist who is also a playmaker. Ward Prowse is that guy, the main man for Southampton, should pick up some easy points.

D – Thiago Silva. Chelsea at home to Palace should be an easy clean sheet. Silva is the cheapest of all the defenders that should start for Chelsea.

UTIL – Jorginho. Will score points due to the amount of passes he makes. Also he is the penalty taker for Chelsea, an extra chance to pick up 10 points if Palace make a few rash challenges

Graeme’s Fantasy EPL Picks

GK – Mendy. It was the obvious choice. It can be intriguing looking at goalkeepers who are going to receive a lot of shots against them. However the Clean Sheet and Wins combo of 10 points is more important. Every goal conceded is -2. The other games are all relatively close. Of the 10 teams, Chelsea look the more likely for clean sheets.

D – Ryan Bertrand. First of all he is cheap. Second it looks like he will be their first choice left back. I wanted a value defender to allow me good salary for a striker and this is good pick. This should be a good matchup for him in what could be an open game.

M – Ismaila Sarr. Has the M/F designation. From what we saw from Watford last season, especially after Munoz took over, he will be a big weapon for the team. Look at before and after. 3 goals and 2 assists in 16 games, then 10 goals and 3 assists. Happy to back him here. Villa in pre-season look wide open to counter attack.

F – Jamie Vardy. Always someone you can generally rely on starting and can be good for the goals. Danny Ings was tempting but I am concerned about his limited training pre-season.
