This Wednesday there will the next big Weekly Monster tournament on Fanteam.com.
Each team for this tournament will cost a buy in of only €20.
But now, after a short explanation of the Pursuit format, we go directly to the Weekly Monster Preview for EPL GW36. Have fun.
The €50K Weekly Monster tournament this Wednesday will again be played in Pursuit format. This means that there will be no budget problems, but at the end of the tournament you will receive bonus points the more budget you have left.
More precisely, there are 0.4 points for every 1 million in budget that is left at the end.
So it can be worthwhile if you attach special importance to value for your money, while building your teams.
Weekly Monster Preview EPL GW36 Overview
We see in this tournament the starting positions of all 6 teams.
So there are no surprises and you can set up your teams optimally.
But let’s take a closer look at the 8 teams in this tournament:
Weekly Monster Preview: The Odds
Which team has the highest chance to win and to score? Which defense has the highest odds of keeping a clean-sheet?
Manchester City is the huge favourite in this tournament, which is not surprising as they play at home against the big relegation candidate Bournemouth, who is currently in 18th place.
Tottenham and Wolves are both just over 50% favourites against Newcastle and Burnley, who both still have realistic chances of winning with 21% and 20% respectively.
It is noticeable that Tottenham is much more likely to score a goal than the Wolves, according to the bookmakers, and the Wolves are much more likely not to concede a goal, than Tottenham.
The same applies to the opponents of both teams.
Now we look at the defense and the offense of all 8 teams for this Sunday.
Fanteam price means the average price for the expected line ups.
The best Defense on GW36
Surprisingly, the Wolves have almost the identical probability of not conceding a goal as the big favourite Manchester City.
The whole thing, however, with a more than 3M(!) cheaper average price for the defenders of the Wolves on Fanteam.
Burnley is with still 24% probability for a CS and 5.3M a very good saving tip in my opinion.
The Best Offensive
Manchester City on the offensive with a huge 62% probability of scoring at least 3 goals
Where Wolves and Burnley looked better on the defensive, both in terms of probability and average price, the Spurs in particular were more convincing on offense.
But in the end, despite the average price of 14.7M, there is no way to fade Manchester City in the offensive for this tournament.
Players to watch
Now i want to introduce you some interesting players for this tournament.
R. Patricio (Wolves / 8.2M) GK
A team has a huge 44% chance of not conceding a goal and the goalkeeper costs only 8.2M? More is simply not possible and therefore Patricio is my first choice.
He’s one of the best goalkeepers in England anyway and the Wolves concede very few goals, this will probably not change against Burnley.
But also their goalkeeper, N. Pope (6.4M), is a good choice for me, also because he will probably get more shots on his goal than Patricio.
E. Pieters (Burnley / 5.4M) DEF
There are some points that speak for Pieters in this tournament.
For one thing, Burnley, as an outsider, has a very high probability of 24% for a clean sheet, and for another, 5.4M is simply a very good price for Pieters.
But even more interesting is that Pieters will probably play in midfield again as a winger, but he is listed in the defense at Fanteam.
H. Kane (Spurs / 10.9M) FOR
Without a doubt Kane is one of the best centre forwards in the world.
This season he was injured for a longer period and still scored 13 goals.
Compared to the offensive players at Manchester City, I find him very interesting in this tournament with 10.9M:
Because even though Manchester City has a much higher chance of scoring many goals than Tottenham, Kane has a to score probability of 45%.
Jesus has 51%, but also costs 15.0M and therefore 4.1M(!) more.
Sterling with 50% costs 16.0M, so 5.1M more (to be fair: Sterling also has a high to assist probability as well).
Also R. Jimenez (9.8M) should be mentioned here, he still has a high to score probability of 39% and costs only 9.8M.
And let’s not forget H. Son (11.2M) of course, who is building a perfect duo with Kane.
C. Wilson (Burnley / 6.1M) FOR
As an absolute savings tip and gamble I have chosen C. Wilson.
Although he is the absolute underdog with his team Bournemouth against Manchester City, his to score probability is very solid compared to strikers from the other underdog teams Newcastle and Burnley:
20% and a price of 6.1M is very fair.
But there are 2 more advantages: firstly, most of the players will probably go for Manchester City in this tournament, so Bournemouth will probably have the least ownership in this tournament.
Secondly, Wilson plays through almost all the time and this brings important extra points in times of 5 possible changes.
In the last 13(!) league matches Wilson played 90 minutes for Bournemouth in each match, even after the Corona break, so he was never substituted.
Nevertheless, you have to mention of course that C. Wilson is a high risk pick that should only be used in a very dosed manner.
