Welcome to our Fanduel UCL Soccer Picks for November 6, 2018.
We have 2 matches on the early slare and six matches on the FanDuel main slate with a 3pm lock. Be sure to check the UCL Starting lineups around 1 hour before Fanduel locks. Head over to our Fanduel soccer research hub for lineup building help.
I’ll post my Early Slate picks first then the Main Slate picks afterwards.
Early Slate Picks (12:55pm EST)
Below are my picks for the Early Slate on Fanduel. My main strategy will be to target Liverpool who are playing Red Star Belgrade in Serbia. They have the easiest matchup of the slate.
He could be rested for this match so be sure to check lineups before kickoff. All the Liverpool attacking options are in play against Red Star who have conceeded 10 goals in 3 group stage matches. If he sits, then Daniel Sturridge becomes a must play.
He scored in the reverse fixture and has a chance to continue his goal streak in this matchup. If he doesn’t start, then Emmanuel Bonaventure is a good pivot.
He’s the top overall play on the early slate. Don’t overthink this. There is enough value to play Salah this afternoon.
Another attacking option in a great spot to produce here. He and Salah will be busy upfront all afternoon.
He lead Monaco in tackles, chances created and shots on goal in the reverse fixture. This is a blowup spot for him at home.
We need defenders that will work hard to earn blocks, clearances and interceptions. Liverpool will dominate possesion here so this puts the Red Star Belgrade defense in a great spot to produce points. Rodic will be busy all day long.
He’s super cheap and lets me fit Mane into my lineups. This is a pure salary saver.
He didn’t face a shot in Liverpool’s previous win over Red Star and should be in line for around 17 FDP.
Manager Thierry Henry is still winless as coach of Monaco but I think he earns his first win today.
Main Slate (3:00pm EST)
He’s coming off a hat trick over the weekend and PSG has lost their last 3 away matches in the Champions League. Napoli should score and this is a good spot to stack their offense.
Porto gets probably the easiest matchup on the slate and Marega scored in the reverse fixture. I like a Porto stack and Marega is my favorite pick.
Tottenham takes on the bottom team in the group and I want some exposure to the Tottenham attack. Kane is a great play but will be highly owned so I’m going with Eriksen to provide goals, assists, chances created and shots on goal.
He will be busy busting up the Barcelona attack all day long and picked up an assist in his last UCL home match.
Dortmund has scored 8 and conceeded 0 goals so far during their Champions League campaign. Witsel scored in the reverse fixture and should play the whole 90 minutes.
Porto should be in line for a clean sheet against Lokomotiv. He’s averaging around 20 FDP per game and should pick up the clean sheet here.
He takes set pieces for Tottenham and has massive upside in this matchup. Should go off against PSV at home
Porto is the safest stack on the day with a cupcake matchup versus Lokomotiv. He earned a clean sheet during his last home UCL matchup.
