English Premier League

Lazio vs. Inter Milan

  • When: Friday, Aug. 26, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Lazio Roma +257 // Inter Milan +102

Last season, Serie A was one of the most competitive among the UEFA Leagues. This season is no different. Lazio has 4 points after a couple of matches. Inter has 6. This is a huge game. The home team has played like one of the best in Serie A. Inter beat Lecce 2-1 and then blasted Spezia 3-0. Lazio drew against Torino in their last. Lazio is good enough to beat Inter, but this happens on the chalk’s pitch. The favorite wins.

Soccer Betting Pick: Inter Milan

Juventus vs. AS Roma

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022.

  • Soccer Odds: Juventus +127 // AS Roma +224

Roma and Juve made their first Serie A matches winning ones. The home team underdog beat Salernitana 1-0. Juventus blasted their first Serie A opponent, dusting Sassuolo 3-0. Maximiliano Allegri’s squad is playing the type of defense that made Juve a Champions League contender. Juventus wins.

Soccer Betting Pick: Juventus

La Liga

FC Barcelona -1.75 -119 vs. Real Valladolid +1.75 +103

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 28, 2022

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

In their first La Liga Spanish Primera Division match of the season, Barcelona didn’t play well. Barca struggled to a 0-0 draw versus Rayo Vallecano. But in their second match, Barcelona rolled. Robert Lewandowski scored a couple of goals, including 1 in the first minute, Ousmane Dembele kicked in a score, and Ansu Fati got a goal in Barcelona’s impressive 4-1 road win against Real Sociedad.

Valladolid shows an 0-3 loss to Villareal and a 1-1 draw versus Sevilla in their first couple of La Liga matches. Lewandowski, Dembele, and the rest of Barcelona should help the chalk easily cover the handicap.

Soccer Betting Pick: FC Barcelona -1.75 -119

English Premier League

Chelsea FC vs. Leicester City

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Chelsea FC -1.5 +103 // Leicester City +1.5 -119

For the Blues, this is a must win match. Chelsea played well in their first Premier battle, drawing 2-2 against tough Tottenham. But in their second EPL match, the Blues fell apart. Leeds dominated the road chalk 3-0. Opening odds suggest Chelsea roars back with a huge win against Leicester. That may or may not happen. The home underdog is on a 2-match losing streak, but Leicester often plays Chelsea tough. Also, this happens on Leicester’s pitch. Grabbing the goal and a half makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: Leicester City

Bundesliga

Bayern Munich vs. Monchengladbach

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Bayern Munich -2.0 +102 // Monchengladbach +2.0 -116

So far, Sadio Mane has more than made up for Robert Lewandowski bouncing from Bayern and deciding to throw in with Barcelona. Mane and his mates have dominated Bayern’s Bundesliga rivals. Munich beat Frankfurt 6-1 in their first Bundesliga match. Bayern blasted Wolfsburg 2-0 in their second match and blew up Bochum 7-0 in their third. Gladbach has played well with a couple of victories and a draw in their first 3 German League games. But the home dog is up against it versus Bayern. The chalk covers the handicap.
