Saturday 12/5 EPL DFS and Best Bet

This article focuses on 12/5 EPL Picks for DraftKings and FanDuel Sportsbook and FanDuel and DraftKings Daily Fantasy. We consider tournament tactics, statistics, pricing, and attempt to tackle this highly variable Daily Fantasy format so we can gain an edge on the field at large.

Saturday 12/5 EPL Slate and DFS Gameplan

We are up to EPL Matchweek 11/38, as it kicks off with the usual Saturday morning slate.

This slate can be found with all three games and a 10:00am ET start time on both sites.

It all begins with Manchester City (-910) hosting Fulham (+1900) as a very heavy favorite. Thankfully, this game is first, as we wouldn’t want to have to wait on the Manchester City lineups after lock. Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, and Gabriel Jesus rested midweek, making them the most likely attack options to start.

Afterwards, West Ham (+265) will be hosting Manchester United (+104). The Red Devils will be looking to rebound from a home loss to PSG mid-week in the Champion’s League.

Finally, Leeds United (+500) will be traveling to Chelsea (-195). The Blues have been rising up the EPL Table. However, Leeds United presents a legitimate challenge with their variety of weapons and unforgivingly open and offensive style of play. Chelsea, much like Manchester City, was able to rest a lot of starters mid-week in the Champion’s League, as backup striker Olivier Giroud stole the show.

Notable Goal Scoring Odds

Note: Many of these players will not end up starting, but their goal odds are listed just in case. If they do not end up starting, disregard them. All odds listed +300 or below and projected starters are listed in bold.

The Betting Game Plan

Let’s roll with a cross league parlay. We can start with Manchester City unless you want to leave them off for lack of value. From there, I like the -190 that we’re currently provided on the Chelsea money line. With fans returning to Stamford Bridge, this in form team should get a boost.

Moving to La Liga, with Messi rested once again mid-week, Barcelona can fill out our parlay. Cadiz’s goal differential suggests that some regression is in store for them.
