Fantasy Football Betting Tips For Gameweek 25
This week NaturalFootyFan shows you how to take advantage of early entries, breaks down the pros and cons of attacking and defensive stacks and shares his provisional team.
Bet4theBest is a website that allows you to create a new Fantasy Premier League team each week and enter £2.50, £5, £7.50, £10 or £15 leagues. These entry fees are totalled up and split between the managers who scored highest during that gameweek.
With this in mind, and the fact they offer budget-free team selection, top-heavy payout structures and smaller, more competitive, contests – it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase your football knowledge and utilise Daily Fantasy techniques which are otherwise ignored in the season-long format.
Bet4theBest allows you to enter teams throughout the gameweek, and with Arsenal hosting Hull this weekend, it’s the perfect opportunity to do so.
The majority of contestants wait until the 3pm kick-off lineups are leaked, in an effort to increase their chances of fielding a full starting XI, so every player you select from the early kick-off has the potential to make headway on them.
As we found out from our Fantasy Premier League algorithm, Arsenal are forecasted to score the most goals and concede the least in Gameweek 25, so we recommend that you fill out your squad with the maximum amount of players (4) from the home side.
There are numerous techniques to get the most out of your Arsenal selections. In this next section I will take you through the attacking stack, the defensive stack and my provisional team for Gameweek 25.
The Arsenal Attacking Stack
This is a very risky strategy, but will have massive upsides if Arsenal go on a scoring spree. Here’s an example and some reasons to back it up:
-Arsenal have scored at least 2 goals in 12 of their last 13 matches against Hull in all competitions.
-They have scored four goals in their last two fixtures vs. Hull.
-Alexis Sanchez is a prime captaincy choice with back-to-back braces against The Tigers.
-Theo Walcott has scored three times in his last two fixtures vs. Hull.
-Hull are ranked 19th for away goals conceded in the PL this season.
The Arsenal Defensive Stack
Just like the attacking stack, this is a high-risk, high-reward strategy, with everything dependent on an Arsenal clean sheet. Here’s an example and some reasons to back it up:
-Hull have failed to score in seven of their last eight Premier league away fixtures.
–Hull have failed to score in 11 league games this season – more often than any other PL side.
-Hull are winless in 13 attempts against The Gunners in all competitions.
-Monreal, Koscielny and Mustafi have contributed to three goals and three assists between them this season.
Note: Bellerin misses out as it’s unknown if he’ll recover from concussion in time for the weekend.
My Provisional Gameweek 25 Team:
My provisional XI combines the Arsenal attacking and defensive stack, while filling the gaps with highly owned individuals and a couple of differentials.
-Two of Chelsea’s backline to take advantage of goal-shy Burnley. Alonso is a must-have for goal, assist and clean sheet potential.
-Sigurdsson and Snodgrass are set-piece specialists with home fixtures.
-Ibrahimovic to punish a leaky Watford defence, while Mkhitaryan is one of the most clinical midfielders.
-A confident Hazard is a no-brainer against Burnley. Chelsea will dominate in all areas.
Note: Walcott or Costa was a coin flip.
