Hi everyone, this is a weekly blog post where we document changes to our team based on bookie’s odds. We have been doing this since game week one and have shared with you our progress and regression thus far. 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. Currently we’re 409,143th in the world and aim to be top 1% by the end of the season with the help of the bookies. To view the team click the following link: OddsonFPLTeam

Now onto a quick recap of Gameweek 13.Our points expectancy was 55.5 and we managed to slightly improve on that with a final points tally of 56. An incredibly accurate last game week for the bookies. With Ruben Loftus-Cheek being subbed in for Firmino for 7 points it was a nice lift after Tammy Abraham played 5 minutes. While Sterling/Hazard/Alli all delivered the goods, Otamendi had a mare upon his return and ended up with 0 points courtesy of an own goal. A cameo appearance for Tammy Abraham means he got 1 point and with him playing against his parent club he is unavailable for this week’s fixture. We went from 440057 to 409143 a small but steady increase.
This week we transferred out Pickford as he and Everton will never ever keep a clean sheet, and transferred in Courtois. Chelsea have some really nice fixtures coming up and clean sheets will be expected. This week our expected points is 57.93. Eden Hazard is the most likely points scorer this week in the team so he takes the Captaincy, while Gabriel Jesus is VC.

Nicolas Otamendi – Expected Points 5.04
