FanDuel DFS Soccer: World Cup Targets for Wednesday, Nov. 30

MATCHES (ET) Kylian Mbappe, TUN vs. FRA ($21): I really wanted to start with someone other than Mbappe but it's impossible to. France are the biggest favorites on the slate and the only team with an implied total above two (2.02). Mbappe is the second priciest player on the slate but also has the second-best goal-scoring odds at +125. Mbappe's only flaw is that he has seen the lighter side of a set-piece split with Antoine Griezmann ($20) who is also worth consideration in his own right. With the highest implied total on the slate, all of the French attack is in play though Marcus Thuram ($16) is interesting in particular. He is projected to start and has +220 goal-scoring odds but comes in significantly below the price of Olivier Giroud ($19), who he would figure to replace. The biggest factor here is figuring out who is actually going to start in the attacking roles as changes could be coming. Hirving Lozano ($18) and Luis Chavez ($9) are both worth consideration as well, the former has strong +175 goal-scoring odds, while Chavez has actually taken the majority of sets for Mexico, despite his near-floor price.
