Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (January 23, 2023)

Spanish Copa del Rey

Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid

One of the most heated rivals in soccer history resumes on Thursday when Real Madrid hosts Atletico. Both sides are playing well enough to score a victory in this.

Real has won 3-of-5 with 2 losses. Both losses make sense, versus Villareal in a road match and against Barcelona in the Supercopa Final.

Atletico is on a 2-match winning streak. Both matches, 2-0 against Levante and 3-0 versus Valladolid, were terrific performances. Real, though, is a big step up. Karim Benzema and his mates get it done.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Madrid

English FA Cup

Manchester City vs. Arsenal

Don’t think for a moment Arsenal and Man City don’t want to make a statement in this game. The Sky Blues appear to have turned around their form.

City has won 2 straight in blitzing fashion, 4-2 against Tottenham and 3-0 versus Wolverhampton, after a 2-match losing streak against Southampton and Man United. This happens at Etihad and Gabriel Jesus, one of Arsenal’s top players, won’t return to the pitch until February. City gets the nod.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester City


Bayern Munich vs. Eintracht Frankfurt

It’s easy to look at the last head-to-head between Bayern and Frankfurt and determine that Bayern easily wins. Munich dusted Frankfurt 6-1 in the last face-off.

Ah, but that match happened last August. Heading into this, Frankfurt is playing the better soccer, scoring victories over Sporting CP, Augsburg, Schalke 04, and Hoffenheim.

Bayern has drawn in 3 straight. Munich likely wins, but the odds on Frankfurt make them an overlay.

Soccer Betting Pick: Eintracht Frankfurt

Bayer Leverkusen vs. Borussia Dortmund

Both these squads are playing lights out. Home team Leverkusen, the slight favorite, has won 5 straight. Dortmund is on a 2-match winning streak and has won 4-of-5 with a draw versus Vietnam in a club friendly.

Dortmund won the last head-to-head. But in the head-to-head before Leverkusen blasted the road team 5-2. Backing the home squad makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: Bayer Leverkusen

Serie A

Cremonese vs. Inter Milan

After 3 straight losses, big time underdog Cremonese has turned around their form. The home team in this beat Napoli via penalty kicks in an Italian Coppa Italia match on Jan. 17. Then on Jan. 23, Cremonese drew against Bologna.

Inter had won 3 straight over Parma, Hellas Verona, and AC Milan, before falling to Empoli via a 1-0 score in their last. No doubt, Inter should win, but the odds make the road squad an underlay. Taking a shot on the home team dog makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: Cremonese

Napoli vs. AS Roma

Roma might be catching Napoli at the perfect time. Napoli beat Salernitana 2-0 on Jan. 21 but before the win, Napoli had fallen to Cremonese via penalty kicks in a Coppa Italia match.

Roma has won 4-of-5. No doubt, Napoli has an edge because this is on their pitch. The road squad offers odds that make them more than playable.

Soccer Betting Pick: AS Roma
