MATCH (EDT)

Saturday, 3:00 p.m: Liverpool v. Tottenham

FORWARDS/MIDFIELDERS

Liverpool are a decent -110 favorite (at FanDuel Sportsbook) after Tottenham (+330) closed the season out of form, winning two of their last eight league and UCL matches. Combine that with the two previous results between these teams, which Liverpool won 2-1 twice, and that's a recipe for a loss. The over/under was sitting just above 2.5 goals (-122) on Thursday, and while that's not a lot, there should be goals scored given the prior matchups.

The problem is that neither Mohamed Salah ($16) nor Sadio Mane ($15) were involved in any of the four goals scored in those previous meetings. Even though the Reds are favored, that doesn't mean Salah and Mane should be the hands-down best captain plays. They'll be popular in cash games, but if Roberto Firmino ($12) starts, he could throw a wrench into that strategy. If that were the case, it wouldn't be surprising if all three players had fairly high captain percentages.

Still, Salah has the best floor and potential in this match after averaging 1.77 shots on goal and 1.88 chances created per 90 minutes in league play. He'll likely be the highest-owned player on the slate in both cash and GPPs. Mane (1.23 SOG, 1.31 CC) and Firmino (1.20 SOG, 1.48 CC) both score at decent rates, but they didn't produce nearly as many opportunities as Salah.

If you think Tottenham can get the upset, Christian Eriksen ($13) and Son Heung-Min ($12)
