There’s a 5 match English Premier League slate on Wednesday evening that sees Liverpool hosting Manchester City, Arsenal taking on Swansea City at the Emirates, Watford visiting Old Trafford to face a rejuvenated Manchester United side, Stoke City entertaining Newcastle United and title-chasing Spurs away at West Ham United.
This provides the perfect opportunity to get stuck into a 4600-player contest on DraftKings that features $12,000.00 in total prizes, paying out the top 935 finishing positions. First place will take home $1,000.00 and the entry fee is just $3.
Here’s a quick recap of the goal estimations based on the latest odds provided by the bookmakers.
Width looks to be the key to this contest as crossing accounts for a huge proportion of the points earned under the DraftKings scoring criteria, so we’ve targeted a set of players who we feel have the potential to get in a significant number of crosses in their respective fixtures.
Guillermo Varela, Marcos Rojo and Nacho Monreal will fill our full-back berths while Jesse Lingard, Andros Townsend and Mesut Özil get the nod in midfield.
Simon Mignolet had a bit of a horror show in the Capital One Cup final, so maybe he will be out to redeem himself when the two sides face off again. The Citizens attack should keep him busy enough and he has an outside chance of claiming that goalkeeper win bonus.
We’ve gone for 3 in-form strikers in the shape of Marcus Rashford, Marko Arnautovic and Danny Welbeck and our line-up is completed by Memphis Depay. The Dutch winger is starting to show off glimpses of his undoubted ability and this clash against the Hornets looks a great opportunity for him to display his repertoire of skills.
Remember that you can edit your lineup after official team news is announced, which is always a handy tool to have at your disposal in case the likes of Rojo were to miss out due to fitness concerns.
Memphis Depay is available at $5,500 on DraftKings UK (vs Watford, $50K Budget)
