Hollywoodbets have just launched a brand new betting product called Fantasy League Betting. Along with some of the other betting products they have recently launched (such as Jika Sports), they are really pushing hard to ensure players have plenty to bet on. This one combines playing a fantasy league game with fixed odds betting.
You have the chance to choose and build your own soccer fantasy team from the players taking part in specific games. You are choosing your own fantasy team so you will need to select 11 players.
You then earn points based on these players behaviour in the real game, and the total points are added up after the game week. The more points, the better. Odds are then assigned to the points range you have earned to calculate the total odds for your bet, and then applied to your betslip. You can see below the points odds range example as well as the rules for earning below:
So, for example, if your defender scores a goal, you will earn 8 points, but if it were your midfielder you would earn 5 points.
|1||For playing up to 60-minutes||1||1||1||1|
|2||For playing 60-minutes or more||2||2||2||2|
|3||For each goal scored||8||8||5||5|
|4||For each goal assist||5||5||2||1|
|5||For a clean sheet||3||3||1||0|
|6||For every 3 shots saved||2||2||1||1|
|7||For each penalty saved||5||0||0||0|
|8||For each penalty miss||0||-2||-2||-2|
|9||For every 3 goals conceded||-1||-1||0||0|
|10||For a yellow card (if no red exists)||-1||-1||-1||-1|
|11||For a red card||-3||-3||-3||-3|
|12||For each own goal||-2||-2||-2||-2|
|13||For every 3 corners won||2||2||1||1|
|14||For every 3 shots off target||0||0||-2||-2|
|15||For every 3 fouls won||0||0||1||2|
|16||For every 3 fouls committed||-1||-1||-1||0|
|17||For every 2 offsides provoked||0||1||0||0|

You firstly need to have registered with Hollywoodbets and FICA’d your account. You then go to the Hollywoodbets mobile site and scroll down until you see the link for “Fantasy League Betting”, and then click “Play Now”.
Firstly choose a name for your team, and then start building it. There are a few criteria you need to build a team, which are:
• 11 Players
• Up to a maximum of four players from a single team (for example, you may only pick four Arsenal players in your side)
• One goalkeeper
• Three to six defenders
• Two to six midfielders
• One to three forwards
After you have built your team, you need to choose your Captain and Vice-Captain. To do this, click either the “c” fr Captain or the “vc” for Vice Captain, under each player. You need to think carefully here, as the Captain will earn double points (your Vice Captain is there in case your choice for Captain isn’t selected to play in the match). If your team is not built properly, the purple progress bar will still be purple. It turns orange when you are ready to move to the next stage.
Now, scroll down, enter your stake and take a look at your potential winning (total odds). Then click “Bet”
Even though this is a Fantasy League game, it is still based on reality and on real player’s performance. This means, you can use your knowledge of how teams and players perform in real games to help guide your fantasy league betting predictions. If you know that a certain player scores well from the defender position, then you should include them as they can generate high points. If other players often get carded, you should stay away as those can cost you negative points.
