4 FanDuel Premier League Value Plays for Matchweek 30
Keeper - Jordan Pickford, Everton ($5,000)
A tactic that has worked in the past for value plays is teaming together a keeper and a defender. This week it will be a duo from Everton that have an interesting matchup with Newcastle. Everton are undefeated against Newcastle in six straight across all competitions. Everton are slight favorites in this game with a nearly 54% implied chance that only one team scores.
Pickford has back-to-back clean sheets while Newcastle failed to score a goal last week. The biggest threat Newcastle will likely pose should be from set pieces, an area Everton have struggled in this season. Newcastle have only converted five set piece situations this season. Also, Pickford should have renewed confidence after his last two games and saving a glorious chance from Mohamed Salah in the Merseyside derby. He was also noticeably more active on crosses and other plays in the box against Liverpool.
Bournemouth's Artur Boruc ($4,500) offers an alternative if you do not want to group keeper and defender. He recorded eight saves last week and gets to face lowly Huddersfield this week. However, he is unlikely to face that many shots with Huddersfield averaging just over three on goal per match.
