Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (August 28, 2023)

Serie A

AS Roma vs. AC Milan

Roma versus Milan should be a tight match, but when it comes to form, AC, by far, is playing better. The road team in this matchup has won 3 straight counting a club friendly victory over Novara on August 13.

Christian Pulisic has scored a goal in each of AC Milan's last couple of games, a 2-0 win against Bologna, and a 4-1 victory over Torino. AS Roma shows a loss and a draw in their first 2 Serie A games. AC continues the winning streak.

Soccer Betting Pick: AC Milan

English Premier League

Chelsea vs. Nottingham Forest

The Blues bounced back from a 3-1 loss to West Ham in their first match of the Premier League Season with a 3-1 victory over promoted Luton Town in their second.

But although Chelsea looked great beating Luton Town, the Blues face a solid club on Saturday. Nottingham Forest has a win over Sheffield United and a 1-goal loss versus Man U on their record. The road team has a good chance of forcing a draw.

Soccer Betting Pick: Draw

Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Newcastle United

Two of the better teams in the Premier League this season clash when 2-1 Brighton hosts 1-1 Newcastle. Both squads have played great soccer.

Road team Newcastle could be 2-0 but they gave up a 1-goal lead to Liverpool and then allowed a go ahead goal by the Reds in their last. Brighton looked great winning their first two matches but fell hard against West Ham in their previous match. It's tough to separate these two, which is why the draw entices.

Soccer Betting Pick: Draw

Manchester United vs. Arsenal

United had the offense going in the last, scoring 3 goals against a quality club like Newcastle. But although Man U won the match, the Red Devils gave up 2 goals.Beating Arsenal will require much better play from the home team. There's no guarantee Manchester plays any better. So it's tough to back the Red Devils. Then again, +300 odds on United versus a rival not named Manchester City at Old Trafford are too high to ignore.

Soccer Betting Pick: Draw

La Liga

Atletico Madrid vs. Sevilla

Sevilla is on a 4-match losing streak. To be fair, 1 of the losses came via penalty kicks after a 1-1 match versus Manchester City in the UEFA Supercup. But after losing the Supercup, Sevilla fell apart with defeats versus Girona and Alaves.

Atletico Madrid has won 2 straight. On August 28, Madrid blasted Rayo Vallecano 7-0. AM easily wins this. Consider laying the handicap if the odds are -1 or more.

Soccer Betting Pick: Atletico Madrid


Union Berlin vs. RB Leipzig

In their first Bundesliga match of the season, Leipzig lost 3-2 versus Bayer Leverkusen. In their second, RB bounced back with a 5-1 victory over Stuttgart.

Union Berlin is on a 4-match winning streak. Also, Berlin beat Leipzig in the last head-to-head. Explain why the home team shows higher odds than the road squad? UB gets the nod.

Soccer Betting Pick: Union Berlin
