Boys, I’m ready. Feed me this shitty little 3-game slate!
THERE AREN’T A TON. WE LOST SOME POTENTIAL VALUE WITH NO BENTEKE, GHEZZAL OR BRADY. WITH ONLY 3 GAMES LET’S GO TEAM BY TEAM.
BOU – ESSENTIALLY NO CHANGE — FRASER THE CASH LOCK. I PREFER KING OVER WILSON. BROOKS A GPP OPTION. YOU CAN ROSTER AKE HOPING FOR A SET PIECE GOAL. BEGOVIC FINE AT GK.
BUR – NO BRADY. MCNEIL IS THE PLAY HERE. BARNES HAS COOLED OFF BUT I GET THE PLAY IN GPP. I’M ON OTHER FORWARDS INSTEAD. WESTWOOD POTENTIAL CASH BUT TOO MUCH $ FOR ME. CHARLIE TAYLOR AS A CHANGE UP D IS OK. HEATON IN GOAL.
HUD – LOWE PLAYING ADVANCED AGAIN. SEEMS LIKE A NO BRAINER IN CASH/GPP. I LIKE MOOY MORE THAN MOST TODAY I THINK. GPP/CASH AS WELL. GRANT LONG SHOT GPP. NOT MUCH INTEREST IN HAMER FROM ME TODAY.
LEI – NO CHANGES. ALMOST EVERYONE IN PLAY. IN ORDER I LIKE MADDISON/CHILWELL/VARDY/GRAY/BARNES/PEREIRA. I THINK 2-3 IS OK. 4 IS PUSHING IT. 1 IN GPP IS FINE. 0 IS CRAZY STUFF.
NEW – I GET THE RITCHIE/RONDON COMBO IN GPP. RITCHIE IS CASH VIABLE. I’M ON OTHERS. ALMIRON IS YOUR CHEAPEST VIABLE CASH FORWARD. I’LL HAVE HIM. PEREZ GPP.
CP – THIS TEAM JUST FEELS TIRED. NO SURPRISES WITH TEAM NEWS SO NO CHANGES. ZAHA = GPP. NOT CASH FOR ME. TOWNSEND IS CASH OPTION. BOTH FBS VIABLE. FOR THE PRICE I PREFER PVA BUT I’LL LIKELY HAVE CHILWELL/LOWE IN CASH.
SEE YOU IN THE CHATROOM!
Now, I’m not sure I’m playing a ton of volume, but I’m not counting it out. I don’t know if others are distracted by hockey, NBA, golf, etc. right now, but I feel our edge is as big as it’s ever been in soccer. Don’t go bonkers, but we should finish this last month and a half on fire.
If you haven’t yet, make sure to check out the podcast here. I talk through the game preview with a few key notes. To clarify, I do know that City is playing Tottenham in the UCL. It was late. Give me a break.
Let’s head to Vegas.
- BOU +110 | 2.5 (-120O/EVENU)
- BUR +250
- TIE +250
- HUD +385 | 2.5 (EVENo/-120u)
- LEI -140
- TIE +290
- NEW +150 | 2 (-155o/+120u)
- CP +200
- TIE +225
- MCI -850 | 3 (-125o/+105u)
- BHA +2000
- TIE +700
- WAT +210 | 2.5 (+115o/-140u)
- WOL +135
- TIE +225
Maybe a sneaky little bet is Watford +1000 to win it all. If they get by Wolves, who knows what can happen in one game. A quick reminder that Watford just beat the ever living shit out of City with Deulofeu scoring a hatty!
McNeil – BUR – $8.1k
This guy is on fire and might have as high a ceiling as anyone this slate. Don’t love Burnley on the road but he’s got a floor that we like.
Townsend – CP – $8.2k
Sat midweek. Should be good to go here. Again, on the road in a hostile environment but we like his floor. Should he start he’s a cash option I’ll have shares of.
Rondon – NEW – $8k
Our first real GPP option, even though McNeil is in consideration. CP are conceding goals to everyone not named Huddersfield. Rondon has been in good form but put up a stinker on the road to Arsenal. No surprise there and I like that he’s back at home. Goal here.
Vardy – LEI – $8.5k
This is prime Vardy picking on the little guys to boost his numbers. We love LEI. Go here.
King – BOU – $7.4k
PK duty and at home as a favorite. I do like Bournemouth in the game and he’s overtaken Callum Wilson as the #1 man up front.
Benteke – CP – $4.8k
This is a punt flier. He came on last game and looked lively. Bats probably gets the start but if the big man gets a start I’m fine taking a stab in GPPs.
Maddison – LEI – $9k
As predicted in the pod, he’s the most expensive player in the pool. Just lock and load.
Fraser – BOU – $7.8k
BOU at home with Fraser on sets. Pretty standard play. I’m on him more than usual.
Milivojevic – CP – $7.4k
He did run his socks off just a few days ago so I’m on him less than the 2 ranked ahead.
Mooy – HUD – $6.8k
At home. Under $7k. I get the play here if you need savings from one of the top 2. Seems like a good Pt/$ play.
Gray – LEI – $5.7k
I honestly thought he might be $7.5k. Not because he’s that good, but LEI are the biggest favorites and there aren’t a ton of high upside options. What if I told you he only had 4 goals and 1 assist in 29 appearances??? GPP only.
Brady – BUR – $3.7k
Dear Lord Baby Jesus, please let Robbie Brady start. I’m going there if he does.
Ghezzal – LEI – $3.9k
Slight chance he starts in place of Barnes or Gray. If he does it seems like a no brainer.
Chilwell – LEI – $5.3k
I like him better than Pereira.
Pereira – LEI – $5.6k
He’ll get ya 4-8 points. Could bump up with a random goal or assist. Gray has 4 and 1. Pereira has 2 and 4!
Lowe – HUD – $4.2k
Just too cheap if he plays in the advanced role again.
Van Aanholt – CP -$4.1k
GPP only. Does have rare upside but when it hits its bonkers. On the road might mean he’s pinned back a bit.
Ake – BOU – $3.2k
Low floor, high ceiling. At home. CS possible.
Schmeichel – LEI – $5.5k
I don’t ever love playing a road keeper over $5k, but HUD are shite. Not a must play by any means.
Boruc – BOU – $5.2k
These boys have been rotating, but whoever starts, you can go here.
Heaton – BUR – $4.4k
I do like him more than Guaita. While I like BOU to win the game, there is a part of me that is clenching my buttcheeks just clicking submit on that bet. BUR have all the motivation needed.
- Watford +210 to win
- WAT (small) +1000 to win the FA CUP
- BOU +110 to win
- LEI/HUD OVER 2.5 goals EVEN
