Fantasy Premier League GW12 and the hectic FPL period beyond it is almost here.
In order to help you with decision about defenders – who to transfer out/in or who to bench, we prepared for you clean sheet probabilities for gameweek 12.
We converted bookmakers clean sheet odds into probabilities using our Odds to probability calculator.
So, which teams have highest chance of clean sheet? And how many clean sheets we should expect in GW12?
Let’s dive in.
Clean Sheet Probabilities for GW12
|Team||Probability of CS|
|Man City||32 %|
|Aston Villa||25 %|
|West Brom||25 %|
|Crystal Palace||16 %|
|West Ham||16 %|
|Man United||15 %|
Bookmakers favor Arsenal and Southampton to keep a clean sheet in GW12 with 43 % probability.
It looks, that it will be again great gameweek for those FPL managers who own Southampton defenders. The Saints have been very solid defensively this season so far.
They have kept 4 clean sheets and only Chelsea and Tottenham have kept more (5). And bookies expect that Southampton will continue in their good defensive performances.
Expected number of clean sheets based on odds
In total, bookmakers predict that there will be 5.18 clean sheets in GW12. On average, there has been 4.82 clean sheets per gameweek, so far this season.
That could be a signal that the offensive overperformance might be indeed over.
And that crazy number of goals and the lack of clean sheets that we have seen at the beginning of the season was just an extreme observation.
In conculsion, according to bookmakers clean sheet odds, we should see more clean sheets in upcoming gameweeks than we were used to.
So, as we have already suggested few weeks ago, this could be good time to move more money into the defense of your FPL team and switch formation to 4 at back.
