Fantasy Premier League Tips: Back Palmer & Jackson in 7/2 wager

Defender Ben White in action for Arsenal
AI predicts White to score four points against Manchester United

Fantasy Premier League expert and football tipster Holly Shand is back to look through the best FPL special bets on Betfair, including odds on Haaland, Jackson, Watkins and more.


Bet #1 - Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne to combine for 10 or more points

Erling Haaland proved his form against Wolves last time out, scoring four goals and he's the most transferred in player going into Gameweek 37. He has the pedigree in this fixture against Fulham, amassing a 20 point haul when these sides met earlier this season, with three goals and an assist.

Team-mate Kevin De Bruyne is a more differential selection in FPL but has performed consistently away from home in this campaign, with four goals and six assists from eight appearances. In fact, he's never blanked in a away trip in which he's started this season.

Haaland is predicted to score 15.5 points across City's double gameweek, while De Bruyne is on 11.3 points according to AI. While this is the easier of City's two fixtures, a double digit haul for each of them may be a little out of reach in this game.


Bet #2 - Cole Palmer and Nicolas Jackson to combine for 15 or more points

Chelsea have been in sound form over the last four gameweeks, scoring 15 goals across five fixtures. Cole Palmer has been central to those performances, with five goals and one assist in this time as he pushes Erling Haaland in the Golden Boot race.

Jackson is the top performing forward in this spell and just two points behind Palmer, the overall leader. Over a third of his goal involvements for the campaign have come in this period, with an impressive four goals and three assists.

Opponents Nottingham Forest are without a clean sheet since the international break, conceding 12 goals in seven. This pair are predicted to score 20.9 points across the double gameweek, and on current form the majority of their returns could come in this fixture.


Bet #3 - Gabriel, Saliba and White to combine for 18 or more points @

Arsenal's sound defensive form shows no sign of slowing down in this campaign, with three clean sheets in their last four league games. That takes the Gunners up to 17 shut-outs for the season, five more than their nearest rivals and just four goals conceded since the break.

Only Bukayo Saka has more fantasy points among Arsenal players than Ben White, who has nine goal involvements for the season: four goals and five assists. Meanwhile, it's Gabriel who leads the way for big chances among defenders with seven, scoring four goals.

The Arsenal trio are predicted by AI to score 11.5 points in their fixture away at Manchester United, with a clean sheet needed to unlock a bigger haul. They are more than capable, especially since United could be without their talisman Bruno Fernandes through injury.


Bet #4 - Ollie Watkins to outscore Mo Salah

Anything could happen when Aston Villa face Liverpool in the Monday Night Football, with two of the best fantasy assets in the game Ollie Watkins and Mohamed Salah facing each other. Each side has dropped significant points since the international break, with form dwindling.

Watkins has one goal and two assists in the last four gameweeks, with the demands of midweek European football catching up with Aston Villa. In the same period, Salah has been confined to minutes as a substitute in two of Liverpool's fixtures, with a 13 point haul against Spurs the high.

Watkins is predicted to score 5.6 points, one lower than Salah on 6.6 points. The unpredictability of the fixture means this one still has a chance, but Salah has the advantage of accruing points more easily as a midfielder in the game, plus he's on penalties.
