Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (August 29, 2022)

English Premier League

Manchester City vs. Aston Villa

  • When: Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Manchester City -1.5 +103 // Aston Villa +1.5 -119

Aston Villa isn’t in great form. The home team underdog has lost 3-of-5, including dropping a Premier League match to Bournemouth. Bournemouth is so bad that Liverpool beat them 9-0 on August 27. Losing to Bournemouth is not good. So although Man City’s defense hasn’t played well in any game this season, the Citizens can get on track here by shutting out Aston and scoring 2 to 3 goals against their rivals.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester City -1.5 +103

La Liga

Betis vs. Real Madrid

  • When: Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Betis +539 // Real Madrid -217

This happens at Santiago Bernabeau, which is the main reason Real Madrid is such a huge favorite. That, and the fact Real has won 5 straight, makes them the chalk. Not only that, but the odds are fair. But before jumping on El Blanco, it’s important to note that Betis has won 4 straight. The last head-to-head ended in a 0-0 draw. The odds make the road team an overlay.

Soccer Betting Pick: Betis

Barcelona vs. Sevilla

  • When: Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Barcelona -118 // Sevilla +345

It didn’t take Robert Lewandowski long to prove he could take his game from Bayern to Barca. Lewa has scored 4 goals in 3 Primera Division matches. Barcelona has won 3 with 2 draws in their last 5. One of the draws was a 3-3 match versus Man City in a club friendly. No doubt, Barca should be the chalk in this.

This match, though, happens at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, Sevilla’s home. But although this happens on their home pitch, the odds on Barca are more than fair and Sevilla has a win, a draw, and 3 losses in their last 5.

Soccer Betting Pick: Barcelona

Bundesliga

Bayern Munich vs. Union Berlin

  • When: Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Bayern Munich -278 // Union Berlin +682

Bayern looked unbeatable, but in their last, Monchengladbach surprised with a 1-1 draw. Most expect Bayern to bounce back with a huge win against Union Berlin. But like Bayern, Berlin has 10 points. Also like Bayern, Berlin is blasting opponents. The home underdog in this beat Schalke 6-1 in their last. The odds make the home team an overlay while the road squad is an underlay. Union Berlin is worth backing to upset mighty Bayern.

Soccer Betting Pick: Union Berlin

Serie A

Inter Milan vs. AC Milan

  • When: Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Inter Milan +170 // AC Milan +170

Most expect Inter and AC to battle for the Serie A title this season. So far, only AC Milan has stepped it up. The home team in this has won all 3 of their Serie A matches. Inter had won their first 2 but failed in their last. Lazio beat Inter 3-1. This happens on AC’s pitch. The home team should prevail.

Soccer Betting Pick: AC Milan

Napoli vs. Lazio

  • When: Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Napoli +140 // Lazio +188

This happens on Lazio’s field, which gives the home team a slight edge. But Lazio is a serious bounce candidate after dominating top Serie A squad Inter Milan in their last. Napoli drew 0-0 versus Fiorentina. The road favorite has won the last 3 head-to-head matches, twice in 2021 and once earlier this year. Napoli grabs the win.

Soccer Betting Pick: Mapoli
