4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 9
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 seven matches.
|Watford at Wolverhampton|
|Southampton at Bournemouth|
|Tottenham at West Ham|
|Brighton at Newcastle|
|Burnley at Manchester City|
|Fulham at Cardiff City|
|Liverpool at Huddersfield|
Well, you've heard this one before -- Manchester City and Liverpool are going to dominate ownership. City are 3.0-goal favorites with 90.1% implied win odds, per Betfair, and a 3.25-goal implied total on a slate where just one other team is greater than a 0.5-goal favorite. Liverpool, meanwhile, are that other team, installed as a 1.5-goal road favorite with 76.3% implied win odds for their date at Huddersfield.
Elsewhere, Bournemouth, Newcastle, Tottenham and Wolves are 0.5-goal favorites. Among that group, Spurs 1.75-goal implied total leads the way as their London derby with West Ham has a 3.0-goal over/under. The Cardiff-Fulham match is a pick'em.
