Here’s our next fantasy World Cup tips article. This is an article where we rank the defenders in the McDonalds FIFA official format.
fantasy World Cup tips – McDonalds FIFA defenders
The approach has been simple. I’ve taken the clean sheet odds from 1 bookie for each game and then totalled them up. The teams are sorted into the best odds prospects and then 2 defenders are suggested and a goalkeeper.
Team: the teams are ordered by the total clean sheet odds with the team with the best total odds at the top
Rd 1, Rd 2, Rd 3: These are the clean sheet odds for each game the team plays in Rds 1 Rds 2 and Rds 3.
Tot: The total odds of the 3 rounds. The lower the total the better the odds.
Def 1 and Def 2: Def 1 is either the best attacking player or the most gametime secure player. Def 2 will be a cheaper version but I have still only tried to pick players with a decent amount of gametime security. They are then priced as per the Mcdonalds site. I’ve used £ through force of habit but they are the prices on the site!
GK: This is who I think will be the first choice GK.
n/a: I’ve used this when I’ve been in doubt about the GK selection.
I’ve used the clean sheet odds when they first came out about a week ago so they were the result of analysis rather than being overly effected by betting patterns and meaningless friendlies. You can see a variety of up to date odds on bonus.ca/betting.
The schedule maybe hard to read on a phone so here’s the link to the google spreadsheet. You can copy and paste it and then meddle as you wish.
I hope it’s all self explanatory. Putting the schedule together took a load of research and work so hopefully it is accurate but I can’t guarantee that. If you think anything is wrong please leave a comment in the comments section below.
I hope you find it useful.
