4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 8

With Manchester United and Tottenham listed as big home favorites, Paul Pogba and Harry Kane are in money spots this weekend. Which other high-priced players should you target?

As is the case when playing any sport on FanDuel, it’s imperative to hit on high-priced studs, the players in which you’ve made the biggest investment. This is especially true with forwards in soccer. Not only are the top-end forwards expensive, they are the ones most likely to put the ball in the back of the net, and goals are often the difference between winning and losing in DFS.

Let’s take a look at some high-priced players -- all across the pitch -- who, despite costing a good chunk of change, are worth the investment.

This article is geared toward FanDuel's main slate, which begins at 10:00 a.m. EST Saturday and features six matches.

Matchweek 8
Saturday, October 6th
Everton at Leicester City
Huddersfield at Burnley
Bournemouth at Watford
Wolves at Crystal Palace
Cardiff City at Tottenham
Newcastle at Manchester United

Tottenham are the slate's biggest favorite, installed as a 1.5-goal home favorite against Cardiff City while boasting 80.0% implied win odds, per Betfair. Spurs will be popular, and given their current injury situation, they should be a great source of value.

Elsewhere, it's a very balanced slate, with just one other team (Manchester United) listed as at least a 1.0-goal favorite. United are struggling, but a home date with Newcastle could be just what the doctor ordered.
