Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (August 7, 2023)

FIFA Women’s World Cup

Japan vs. Sweden

Japan has played better than any team left at the FIFA Women’s World Cup. The Japanese began their quest for the WC trophy with a smashing 5-0 beat down of Zambia.

Then came a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica followed by a 4-0 win against Spain. The Japanese gave up their first goal of the tournament in a 3-1 victory against Norway. The odds make Japan an overlay.

Soccer Betting Pick: Japan

Australia vs. France

The French have turned it up big time in their last couple of matches. France dusted Panama 6-3 in their final group stage match. Then in their Round of 16 game, the French blasted Morocco 4-0.

But although France should be the favorite, they’re tough to back given the odds on host nation Australia. The Aussies have picked up their game in the WC. Australia beat Denmark 2-0 in their knockout stage match and warrant serious consideration to win this.

Soccer Betting Pick: Australia

England vs. Colombia

Colombia bested strong defensive team Jamaica in their Round of 16 game. The Colombians face a much better team than Jamaica on Saturday.

England must play this without star Lauren James. James stepped on a Nigerian player and got a red card in England’s knockout stage win. But even without James, the English are too deep to lose to Colombia.

Soccer Betting Pick: England

La Liga

Athletic Bilbao vs. Real Madrid

Real hasn’t played well in their club friendly matches. But Saturday’s matchup is a La Liga regulation game.

No doubt, Carlo Ancelotti’s squad will pick it up versus rival Athletic Bilbao. Real lost Karim Benzema but still has plenty of star power, including Vinicius Junior and Federico Valverde.

Luka Modric remains on the squad as does Toni Kroos. Real starts their La Liga title quest with a victory.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Madrid

German DFL-Supercup

Bayern Munich vs. RB Leipzig

  • When: Saturday, August 12, 2023

  • Soccer Odds: TBA

This year’s Bundesliga German DFL-Supercup should be an excellent match. Massive expectations are on Bayern and Thomas Tuchel to prove the team is as good as ever.

RB Leipzig believes this is the season they rise to Bayern’s level. The match happens on Bayern’s pitch at Allianz Arena, which gives Munich a massive edge.

But Leipzig’s roster appears almost on even terms with Bayern’s. Give the underdog a shot.

Soccer Betting Pick: RB Leipzig

English Premier League

Chelsea vs. Liverpool

Chelsea and Liverpool appear to be almost even. Roster wise, Pool’s might be slightly better. But Chelsea projects as a much more cohesive group.

The real key is that the Blues start their Premier League quest at Stamford Bridge. Raheem Sterling should have a decent game. All of Chelsea’s players should now that the team has stability.

Soccer Betting Pick: Chelsea
