Squawka Gaming have launched Fantasy 8 - a brand new betting market allowing you to win money based on points scored in the game you all know and love.
We select eight players, you pick the player(s) who you think will score the most Fantasy League points. Simple.
Well, what a weekend that was...11 points from Alexis Sanchez ensured he topped last weekend's leaderboard with that magnificent performance against West Ham. The lucky people who backed him at 6/1 were laughing all the way to the bank. Now to take you through this week’s odds…
It is no surprise that the Chilean forward is fancied to continue his fine recent form and is favourite for the coming week. He is at 9/2, and with Stoke at home, I can see why.
Joint favourite is Eden Hazard, who is up against a Baggies side who themselves have had a decent spell of results. However, Chelsea look unstoppable at the minute and West Brom at home is still a mouth-watering fixture for all managers with a Chelsea player in their side.
The next two in the market are both in good form, too, and with easy looking fixtures. Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke, at 11/2 and 6/1 respectively, both have the capability to carry their teams to victory. Firmino has more weight on his shoulders now with the injuries to Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho, and with West Ham at home at the weekend, managers with Firmino in their team will be hoping for a repeat of Sanchez’s antics. Meanwhile, Benteke will be looking to carry on the form that has seen him score 11 points in the past two games, and with Hull at home, he might do just that.
The next three are all strikers who blow hot and cold. Charlie Austin, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku aren’t safe players to put your money on at the minute, but that isn’t to say they won’t turn up. Southampton and Everton both have relatively easy games on paper, Manchester United less so, but if anyone can step up it’s that man Zlatan. Will the Swede with the statue sink Spurs?
However my pick for the weekend is the outsider - Kevin De Bruyne at 10/1. With a suspended Sergio Aguero and a faltering City side, this may seem like a strange choice, but now is the time for the Belgian to step up. After a blistering start to the season, both De Bruyne and his team-mates have struggled of late, but will look to get back to winning ways against Leicester on Saturday evening. Leicester still look shaky in the league, so I’m backing De Bruyne to light up the game and become the highest scoring pick of the eight entertainers.
