4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 16
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 towards FanDuel's main slate, which begins at 10:00 a.m. EST Saturday and features seven matches.
|Crystal Palace at West Ham|
|Huddersfield at Arsenal|
|Southampton at Cardiff|
|Brighton at Burnley|
|Fulham at Manchester United|
|Manchester City at Chelsea|
|Tottenham at Leicester|
This slate features five of the top-six teams, with the Manchester City-Chelsea clash being the headliner. Arsenal and Manchester United are the two biggest favorites, with the Gunners' slate-high 79.6% implied win odds, per FanDuel Sportsbook, narrowly edging United's 75.6% implied win odds. Both are listed as 1.5-goal home favorites and will be teams to zero in on.
Elsewhere, no other sides are more than a 0.5-goal favorite. Remarkably, City (53.5%) own the next-best implied win odds despite a tough road matchup at Chelsea, with Spurs (51.2%) not far behind for their road fixture at Leicester.
As always, it's imperative to check starting lineups when they are released an hour before kickoff, and that's especially true for this slate as teams are coming off midweek league action.
