SquawkaBet Fantasy 8 - Week 24

By: Dave Boyle 19th January 2017

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.

In a week with many of the big six playing so-called lesser sides, there are plenty of possibilities for this week's top points scorer.

The favourite is Eden Hazard at 3/1, and considering they are at home to lowly Hull, you can see why. With the Diego debacle still rumbling on, it may fall to Hazard to be the main man at the Bridge. Hull, on the other hand, now appear to be experiencing a better time of things under Marco Silva so they may not be the rollover that the table suggests.

Next up is Alexis Sanchez at 4/1. Arsenal have been patchy of late but seem to be coming out of their bad spell with a comfortable win at Swansea...then again, it was only Swansea. With Burnley at home up next, a very different proposition to playing the Clarets at Turf Moor, you would expect Sanchez and Arsenal to turn it on again.

Then we have Philippe Coutinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, both at 9/2. Liverpool have Swansea at home so they will be expecting a comfortable win, and it might be the perfect game to give the Brazilian his first league start after coming back from injury. There is definitely value in Ibrahimovic because he seems to be involved in all of United's goals at the minute, but which Stoke side will turn up this weekend at The Britannia?

Both Romelu Lukaku and Dusan Tadic are never safe players on which to put your money. Lukaku at 6/1 could be worth it as it doesn’t look like Big Sam has had much of an effect on Crystal Palace's defence. In the Southampton v Leicester game, there could be a lot of goals, but with Tadic only being a bit-part player of late, even at 16/1 there isn't much value there.

The best value for me comes in the biggest game of the weekend in Manchester City v Tottenham. Now you could look at Kevin De Bruyne at 14/1 as being unbelievable value, which it is, as he has stood out despite City's poor form in recent weeks. Yet my money is going on Harry Kane at 10/1. This is great value for a striker who is bang in form and against a defence that doesn't seem to know what day of the week it is.
