Well, what a day. Unbelievable that freaking Sergio Aguero missed the penalty. What a difference that PK makes to the remainder of our day. At the moment City were on top, and should that have gone in, Tottenham would have been chasing the game for 80 minutes. That would have lead to goals. And that would have led to me not LOSING 3 FUCKING BETS!! Damn you, Aguero!
In saying that, great performance from Tottenham. Also, RIP Tottenham. Traveling to City for the next leg without Harry Kane. Dele Alli also looked to pick up a little arm injury. City to advance is so obvious.
Oh yeah. Liverpool won 2-0. I’ll continue to say, you roster Firmino every slate and take my head to heads. I’ll murder your account. But yes, Bobby Firmino with a goal and an assist certainly takes the cake. Salah was blah, and Mane was flat out bad.
I’m taking my talents to the 2-game slate, which is what we are talking about in this article. Slight variances in the pricing.
AJAX +235 | 2.5 (EVENo/-120u)
MU +280 | 2.5 (-140o/+115u)
It’s the Messi/Ronaldo show. There are going to be so many lineups with both; so how do we be different? Because make no mistake, these 2 are awesome plays.
Tadic – AJA – $9.6k
He and Ziyech could provide problems for the Juventus back line. In the same price range, but I doubt anywhere near the ownership. Tadic, in particular, should be lower owned.
Suarez – BAR – $8.1k
Everyone reading this knows I think Suarez’s best days are behind him but he does have a history with United. Being a former player for arch-rival Liverpool will provide a little push to the backside that he needs. A TON of attention will be paid to Messi. Perhaps this is our Bobby Firmino pivot.
Lukaku – MU – $8k
Taking the flat track bully against maybe the best team in the world doesn’t seem like the best idea, but at home in a game they must win isn’t the worst place to go. Lukaku is more physical than the CBs of Barca.
Bernardeschi – JUV – $6.4k
More of a cash play than super high GPP upside on the road. I do like his skill set.
Dembele – BAR – $7.3k
Again more of a cash play. If he starts, I’m fine with him if you want off Ronaldo.
Kean – JUV – $4.8k
Obligatory mention; if he starts, I’m all in.
Ziyech – AJA – $9.4k
Just an unbelievable DFS player. I’d rank him ahead of Ronaldo honestly.
Pjanic – JUV – $6.9k
Set pieces are essentially the main reason for rostering Pjanic. If Ronaldo does start, which is likely, he could lose a direct free kick or two to him, which hurts his value slightly.
Van de Beek – AJA – $5.6k
A little expensive but the upside is great. He hasn’t bagged a goal yet thank God. He’ll have 0 ownership.
Pogba – MU – $7.5k
I’m not playing him unless team news gets bonkers. However, of the midfielder only players listed, he is certainly up there in goal scoring odds. I just don’t love the matchup or his form.
Tagliafico – AJA – $5.4k
The goals certainly create huge spikes in his performance. He is still likely the best D available for the $.
Alba – BAR – $4.9k
Form is good. Barca will have 70% of the possession. On a slate where I don’t love a ton of defenders, I always try to look towards guys who will have chances to make an impact based on the game flow.
Shaw – MU – $3.8k
He went up $100 for the 2-game slate. He is what he is. He could get a few crosses in the box, but really, he’s just cheap. Not someone you shove in the LU, but if the salary fits…
Young – MU – $5k
I think his salary kind of falls in a range where his ownership will be lower than it should be. He will take set pieces if he starts. United will sit back and counter so I’m not sure how much he’ll get forward.
Semedo – BAR – $4.3k
Coming off him a bit here with the salary, but if he does get the start, he’s interesting.
This is really just about rostering who you aren’t playing against.
Onana – AJA – $4.5k
Jumping on this bandwagon over the last 12 hours. Juve aren’t likely to blow out AJAX, and Onana can survive even allowing a goal. I do think Ajax score so the win odds aren’t terrible.
Ter Stegen – BAR – $5k
Just don’t love United’s form.
DeGea – MU – $4.3k
The United miracle!!! So essentially, we are playing this for save upside. If we get the win and/or clean sheet, that’s just a bonus.
Szczesny – JUV – $5.2k
If making more than 3 lineups, get him on 1. I don’t really think anyone is on him. People forget they are actually favorites in this game…
- AJA/JUV UNDER 2.5 -120
- Barcelona to win -105
- Halftime/Fulltime – Barcelona/Barcelona +210
- Both teams to score: NO +125
- Total Corners OVER 9.5 -125
