TOTW 28 Gold/Icon SBC Investment: Sterling
Player: Raheem Sterling
Reasoning: With 4 goals and 2 MOTM performances in 2 England victories, Sterling has a good shot at making TOTW 28 from international break. This would put his gold card out of packs from Wednesday, March 27th to Wednesday, April 3rd.
As he is one of the cheapest 87 rated players, Sterling has great SBC value (not to mention the fact he has a good league/club/nation).
The abundance of FUT Birthday challenges, including the recent leak of a middle icon SBC, should cause him to rise.
Target BUY: 32k or less
Target SELL: Before he returns to packs on Wednesday, April 3rd
Won’t the profit be minimal on this? Even if you make like 2k a card, it will take a bunch of coins to make something substantial profit.
He has much more profit potential than 2k given the amount of SBCs that could require him over the next week.
How is this possible that Pavard went from 1k to 5k? If I was quick enough to grab it, that would be the deal of my life. 😀
He is out of packs and was required for the Esswein SBC.
Hi chief! Was wondering About getting his 91 rated UCL card, which could still evolve. With sterling in the next TOTW with what should also be a 91 rated inform, do you think the UCL price will fall? Thanks btw
His UCL probably won’t be effected too much.
What about Sterling’s 85 rated card? Do you think it might go up in price too?
I picked up 7 Batshuayi OTW for 18-20K. Price now is around 27K. Sell now or wait for TOTW tomorrow? Thanks!
I would sell in the hype.
Hey Chief, what about Umtiti, also 87 rated and good nation and position, he will be more likely in TOTW and ist now at 32,5k (ps4)
If he makes the TOTW, yes, he would be a decent one to grab.
I bought some Schulz for around 800 coins regarding his incoming TOTW card.
What are your thoughts on this?
He is OK.
Hi chief just wanted to ask if you know when sterling’s price increases as I’m willing to invest in him when I receive my coins on Thursday ( due to wl and dl rewards) do you th8nk that would be a good day to buy him or will it be too late.
Thank you for sharing your tips and have a good rest of your day👍
He is up since I posted. He will go down if he isn’t in the TOTW. He will go up if he is in the TOTW. He will go down if he isn’t required for SBCs. He will go up if he is required for SBCs.
How much will he sell for hes in totw
There are too many external factors outside of TOTW to answer that.
Hey Chief, I am heavily invested in 83’s and 84’s. Should i continue to hold the everything in hopes of a TOTW SBC this week?
I can predict some things, but what SBCs we get are out of my control. No crystal ball, unfortunately.
I love how you know so much about fifa that you got top 10 tp in just over a month but know so little that you think you start the game in div 10😂😂
Forgot you have play-in games this year to determine your division – thanks for reminding me. Haven’t played rivals since September on my other account.
Do you think this will be hurt by the repeatable 82-87 SBC?
Probably not much considering a vast majority of those players will be 82s or 83s.
Alright it’s not a sterling related question . But how does a guy who doesn’t even grind the game get #9 in the world transfer profit ? Did you get lucky and pack like Ronaldo and messi at the beginning . Jeez i cant even imagine
I haven’t opened any packs and began grinding this account at the beginning of February. This is not a joke. Refer to my tweets from early February as evidence.
Hey Chief, FUT Watch tweeted that apparently EA took the Icon SBC out of the code. Do you think this will affect the potential of Sterling’s value once TOTW comes out, if there’s in fact no SBC requiring his high rating?
I desirable high rated SBC will make high rated cards go up more if it comes than if it doesn’t, yes.
No one is panic-selling Sterling – that’s a first! I expected his price to drop faster than a bag of rocks…
I guess for once people are looking a bit further ahead rather than being reactionary.
Or nobody bothered to follow the ‘advice’.
I just have to laugh at this – you’re acting like anyone who bought Sterling was just blinding following ‘advice’ and it was silly to think he would go out of packs.
Meanwhile, pretty much every person who actually paid the slightest bit of attention to the international performances assumed the same, and thinks Sterling got robbed of an inform.
But you’re just so much smarter! Because you…ignored a near-certainty? Uh…okay then.
Great! My comment was not removed for once. Thanks Chief!
Now back to the real stuff. ALL 85s, 86s and 87s will rise WHEN the mid icon sbc gets dropped. You would have to be an idiot to assume that 87 Sterling is a great deal just because we will be out of packs for a week. When the baby icon sbc dropped 84s and some 85s went extinct. Even if they were in packs. So no, the fact that a card is in TOWT will not matter when the mid icon sbc gets dropped. People are stupid enough to do it no matter to cost, so all 87s will rise 10-20k, not just Sterling.
All informs will rise but sterling would have rised more than most if he was in TOTW because while all 87s will have increased demand sterling’s supply would also be lower so he would rise even more
Again, you might not realize that when we are talking about guaranteed icon SBCs that are cheapish people will sell their whole families to be able to do multiple of them. The demand will be far greater than the supply for all 87s, not just Sterling. Nodoby will pay more for Sterling when Fernandinho is just as good.
So the card will rise anyway…and has a decent league for chemistry…so why not buy it? I see what you’re saying about why Sterling wasn’t special (and subsequently didn’t drop today) but still seems like a decent investment. I don’t mind having bought a few via Chief’s post. This is my first year of FUT so I take advice where I can get it.
That’s your main problem. You do not understand how things work 100%. When someone with a lot of followers does something, the people are stupid enough to copy them. In our case, they’ll buy Sterling because they read about it on a website for a greater price then they should; some people (i.e. patreons) try to buy => price will rise => regular people try to buy for 3-5k more expensive than they should).
If you believe that Sterling will be useful for an SBC (like mid icon) buy Fernandinho. OR even better, try to do your own guessing and investing. That way you know that you do not pay extra for stuff.
Again, the reason I recommended him was because he was both high rated and could be in TOTW. You are correct, now that he is not in TOTW, cheaper 87 rated alternatives are better. But had Sterling been in TOTW 28, that would have had a positive impact on his price, just as it did when he was in TOTW 26.
Let’s assume you suggested Pjanic. I picked up Pjanic for 20k yesterday and he is now 23k. That’s nothing in terms of profit due to tax. Now, let’s say that mid icon SBC drops on Friday (which is probably what will happen). Do you honestly believe that people will be dumb enough (bad question with so many children) so pay 35k for Pjanic when Matic will be 30k? Or do you think that simply because he’s out of packs everybody will be so determined to use him in an SBC where he’s not specifically required?
Sterling made sense if he was specifically required for an SBC or at least a Man City player but in that case we go back to Fernandinho.
Yes, people are lazy/dumb enough, as evidenced by countless cheapest SBC solutions where a particular player who is far from required shoots up in price.
But we are getting away from the point. Investing is best when it knocks out multiple birds with one stone. Sterling could have risen due to being out of packs, just as he did in TOTW 26. He also could have risen for potential Icon SBCs this weekend, in which 87s as a whole would rise.
Hi Chief I bought 5 Sterlings 85 OVER, but the price has dropped. Should I sell so if the price goes down more I’ll lose less coins or should I hang onto them?
Not sure why you bought the 85 version in the first place, but I would sell and invest elsewhere when the next investing opportunity comes.
Thanks my guy
The TOTW HAS NOT STERLING BEING IN IT
Yes, I’m aware. I’ve tweeted my thoughts in regards to this already.
