Bournemouth v West Ham

Let’s kick this thing off with fire. I love this match for goals. It should play at a fast pace and both teams allow chances at an above average rate. I will give the edge to Bournemouth. They have had a rough stretch in the middle of the season but it is about to get better. I think they are a team we can confidently target in the coming weeks. Given that he has created the third most chances in the league and is top 10 in crosses over the last 3 weeks, Ryan Fraser is a strong candidate for your cash lineups on any site. I believe we see both teams score so we could use West Ham for GPP.

Liverpool v Crystal Palace

Liverpool has been doing what they can, as of late, but it’s probably more like what they have to. They have a 4 pt lead over City and don’t have to overextend themselves too much. The place they excel, though, is at home. Crystal Palace has typically suppressed goals at home but conceded them on the road. This sets up a tough day for the visitors. Since we have 7 games on the docket, I will not be venturing into the Crystal Palace player pool looking to spike a wonder goal. Alisson is a cash-viable keeper with clean sheet upside. Liverpool should win easily.

Manchester United v Brighton

The Red Devils look to keep the train rolling this week as they host Brighton. Brighton shouldn’t put up too much of a fight here. United will look to bring the pressure and Brighton will look to absorb as much of it as they can. The Brighton centerbacks, Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk, are in play on Fanduel. I wouldn’t be shocked to see a possession split as high as 75/25 for United and that would mean plenty of peripherals for the central defense. David De Gea is a slightly cheaper cash option for your keeper spot.


Hey! I just wanted to take a break to tell you about our Beat The Bookie service over at the DFS Army.

Newcastle v Cardiff

Both teams need this match in a bad way and it’s a tough one to call. I wonder if these teams will play deliberate, probing styles so they don’t get too exposed to a counter or if they just go for it all. A draw isn’t out of the question, either, I suppose. I do think this match provides an opportunity for a contrarian play. That would lead me to Cardiff more so than Newcastle.

Southampton v Everton

Southampton is the better of the two teams right now and they get the benefit of returning home after a 2-game mini road trip that saw them play very well. They weren’t playing terribly before then but they weren’t getting the results. Now, they get a struggling Everton team. Everton just beat Bournemouth but lost or draw with some giants and mousey teams, alike. I will side with Southampton here. Danny Ings looks good to return here. Everton struggles to contain forwards.

Watford v Burnley

Watford welcomes Burnley to town and looks to keep their rate of return going. They have taken 5 of a possible 9 points in their last 3 matches. Burnley comes in even hotter having taken all 9 available points since getting waxed by Everton. Last week they were a little fortunate with 2 own goals. Own goals are not indicative of future performance. I would expect Watford to be able to control the game and push the action. Jose Holebas is in a solid spot for DK cash games. Burnley surrenders plenty of crosses from the left, which should help boost his floor.

Arsenal v Chelsea

And we have come to the game of the week. Chelsea has made some changes to the roster, recently. Morata and Fabregas are out. Higuain is in. This means we should see Eden Hazard playing a false 9 one more time. They’ll give Higgy some time to pick up the game plan. Arsenal plays very well at home, typically. They don’t have that consistent lineup so it will be hard to know who you can use in the attack, aside from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. As usual, we will dissect the lineups and help out our VIPs in our coaching channel.


That’s the game breakdown for this week. Remember, this is a top-level view and things can change. Of course, you know about the most important hour in the soccer DFS world. We will always have free content but the good stuff is saved for the ones who are willing to go the extra step. We will stand with you if you stand with us. Good luck this week!
