World Cup Notes with Brando – 7/6/18

Uruguay vs France:

Welcome to the first two matches of the quarter finals, the land where predicting a game is almost impossible! As of right now Uruguay will be playing this match with Suarez and Suarez only.

What does that mean? France all the way baby! ALLONS-Y FRANÇAISE!!! Suarez and Uruguay will be desperate for Cavani to play if they want a chance to win this game. Suarez alone and France will have no issues with defending and will be able to focus more on the offense. Uruguay May also rely more on their defense which could eventually break with the talent and prowess of the French attack.

 

We also need to remember this is the true test of the best defense in the tournament, because Uruguay have not played a team with this much talent and offense yet. French side should not have a problem with this game, with only one prolific scorer to worry about. As of right now the man who will replace the suspended Matuidi is Nabil Fekir. That also means he will take a share of corners and Pogba will not get his chance to be more on the attack. This game will be a 1 goal difference and I suspect it may be the only goal.

 

Brazil vs Belgium:

Welcome to the highest implied goal total of the day between the two games. Looking at how each team played in group stage, Belgium would not have a hard time winning this game. Looking at how each team played in around of 16, Brazil will exploit Belgium’s weakness a lot. Neymar will be very high owned along with Hazard in this game because they both are huge catalysts for their respective sides. Lukaku and Jesus are also great GPP plays because of their high goal upside. Marcelo will also be a good play if he manages to make it into Xl tomorrow. I feel as if there will be some fireworks in this one.

Sample Lineup:

World Cup June 28 – Brando’s Notes

Japan vs Poland:

One of our first matches of our final 4-game slate is a pickem of course and Japan are favored by some and Poland are favored by others. Japan have you played surprisingly well in their first two group stage matches and will keep the same starting 11 for today. Shibisaki has been a key player in both matches and will be one again today. On the other side of the pitch, Poland have been eliminated and would like to knock Japan out as well by stealing the win. Look for Lewandowski who has second highest goal scoring odds to really push for at least one goal before he goes home and Petr Zielinski along with Kamil Grosicki will help him as much as they can with crosses, open play and great vision on the pitch.

England vs Belgium:

Both teams have progressed to the Round of 16 and really only need a draw. However even if they do draw we are still not certain who will make it in(the team with least amount of yellow cards). So there is some sort of appeal to the game still and with both squads rotating, I will favor one of my favorite England. Rashford most certainly should get a start today along with Batshuayi on the Belgium side and both are amazing attackers. However, England should have the better rotated side.

Panama v Tunisia:

Both teams have been eliminated, but that doesn’t mean we can’t see last minute fireworks before they fly back to their respective homes. Tunisia is the highest favored team on the slate and Khazri will most certainly be a part of this attack with his highest implied goal scouting odds. This one should be a full out stack for Tunisia in Showdown.

DFS – Day 2 – Big GPP Success

The second day and we had a bunch of slates and single game showdown matchups. And today we almost took down our first GPP, with another lineup from yours truly that I shared it in the Premium Slack chat. For one subscriber, he turned a $1 entry and $1.99 subscription into $25, a very nice profit.

Again and as I often do, I focused on the wing defenders on what was perceived to be the lesser squad and then matched it with the opposing goalie. The opposing goalie proved to be my biggest mistake, but as I said before lock, the value on Iran was just too much to walk away from….

After that solid base it was simply picking my favorite studs or players in the best positions to exceed value in a game that didn’t disappoint.

DFS – Day 1 – Russia DK Showdown

The first day and only one match but that didn’t stop us from sharing a pretty solid two pack of GPP lineups in the Premium Slack chat, that returned a nice profit.

As I often do, I focused on the wing defenders on the lesser squad and then matched it with the opposing goalie in one line-up and then pivoted to the same squad goalie in the second line-up.

After that it’s was simply picking my favorite studs or players in the best position on the heavily favored side and it was a wrap.
