Galin Dragiev highlights the best EPL Soccer week 15 DFS picks on DraftKings and FanDuel:
We have an interesting five game slate this weekend that features some chalky plays in cash games. The biggest favorite of the slate is Arsenal, who face Stoke City at home in what should be an easy sweep. Another big favorite on Saturday is Swansea, who face Sunderland at home. Swansea were just beat 5-0 at Tottenham, but they return home for the softest matchup in the Premier League and the value boosts immediately.
Outside of these two games, it’s a bit tricky. Manchester City face Leicester on the road and are fairly big favorites, but Leicester are not exactly a roll-over, especially at home. It’s hard to justify spending on Manchester City after getting Arsenal exposure and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who we’ll get to soon. An interesting game is Hull City vs. Crystal Palace where both teams cannot play defense and it may be an interesting game-stack in GPPs, including some cash value. Burnley host Bournemouth and have allowed the most shots in the league, which makes for an interesting game where Bournemouth are the favorites away from home.
On both FanDuel and DraftKings, the strategy this week is to once again spend up on midfielders/forwards and save on defense. Defenders keep underperforming every week, especially on DraftKings, and there isn’t much to like there amongst the top choices in week 15. Let’s look at some actual plays on both sites…
