Serie A

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • When: Friday, Aug. 26, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Tottenham Hotspur -1.25 -119 // Wolverhampton Wanderers +1.25 +103

On August 14, Tottenham faced Chelsea on the road. The Hotspur played great. Although Tottenham couldn’t secure the victory, they played well enough for a 2-2 draw. Tottenham has a win and a draw in a couple of Premier League matches. The Hotspur blasted Southampton 4-1 on August 6. Wolverhampton has drawn in 3 with a loss in their last 4. The Hotspur are the better team. Harry Kane and his mates cover.

Soccer Betting Pick: Tottenham Hotspur

Leeds United vs. Chelsea

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022.

  • Soccer Odds: Leeds United +1.0 -111 // Chelsea -1.0 -103

In their first Premier League match, Leeds beat Wolverhampton 2-1. Then in their second match, the home team in this drew against Southampton 2-2. Chelsea shows a win and draw so far this EPL season. The Blues beat Everton 1-0 on August 6. Then on August 13, Chelsea drew 2-2 versus Tottenham. This is a Blues road game, but the favorite can cover.

Soccer Betting Pick: Chelsea

La Liga

Celta Vigo vs. Real Madrid

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 20, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Celta Vigo +324 // Real Madrid -120

La Liga and Champions League defending titlists Real Madrid faces Celta Vigo in their first league match of the season. On August 10, El Blanco blanked last season’s Europa League winner Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0. Celta Vigo has drawn in 2 straight. The draws happened versus soccer clubs that would have no shot at upsetting Real Madrid. The favored road team gets the job done.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Madrid

Atletico Madrid vs. Villarreal

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022.

  • Soccer Odds: Atletico Madrid -108 // Villarreal +315

This will be Atletico’s second La Liga match of the season. On August 15, Atletico takes on Getafe. The home chalk has played well during club friendlies. So although Luis Suarez no longer plays for Atletico, the team could be much better at scoring goals this season. 22-year-old Portuguese forward Jao Felix should take the next step. He’ll ensure Atletico’s goal scoring doesn’t go backward without Suarez.

Villarreal won the 2020-2021 Europa League. Manager and coach Unai Emery is terrific at getting Villarreal to step it up in tournaments. But in league play, Emery’s squad tends to fall flat. Atletico grabs the win.

Soccer Betting Pick: Atletico Madrid

Serie A

Torino vs. Lazio

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 20, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Torino +217 // Lazio +126

This is Lazio’s first match of the season. So it’s difficult to understand why the road team offers lower odds than the home squad. Torino beat Palermo 3-0 in a Coppa Italia match on August 6. On August 13, Torino got past Mozza 2-1 in their first Serie A match. The home team offers overlay odds while Lazio may not be at their best since this will be just their second match since May 21.

Soccer Betting Pick: Torino

Atalanta vs. AC Milan

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022.

  • Soccer Odds: Atalanta +191 // AC Milan +145

Atalanta has a slight edge because this happens on their pitch. The moneyline odds, though, imply AC Milan is the better club. It’s difficult to argue against the odds. Atalanta looked good beating Sampdoria 2-0 in their first Serie A match of the season. Milan, though, played like the best team at Serie A. AC blasted Udinese 4-2. Hernandez, Rebic, and Diaz scored goals. Milan gets the nod.

Soccer Betting Pick: AC Milan
