English Premier League

Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Manchester United

On April 23, Brighton and Man U played to a 0-0 draw in an FA Cup Semifinal. The Red Devils got the victory via penalties.

In their first match right after the FA Cup game, Brighton lost by 2 goals in a 3-1 match at Nottingham. But after that, the home favorite in this rolled past Wolverhampton 6-0. Brighton has revenge on their mind. The home team gets it.

Soccer Betting Pick: Brighton & Hove Albion

Newcastle United vs. Arsenal

Arsenal has a win, 3 draws, and a loss in their last 5. The Gunners are fighting for the English Premier League title. Heading into the week, Arsenal is a point behind Manchester City.

Newcastle is playing lights out. The home team in this has won 4-of-5 with a loss. This match can go either way. But Newcastle is due for a draw, they’ve got 11 on the season. The draw is the play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Draw

Spanish Copa del Rey Final

Real Madrid vs. Osasuna

Both teams are playing decent soccer. Osasuna has 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 4. Real Madrid shows 4 wins and a loss in their last 5.

Real’s loss came against Giron, a team they were favored to dominate. But Karim Benzema and his mates bounced back after the loss with a nice 4-2 victory Almeria.

Osasuna fell by 2 goals to Sociedad in their last. Real can cover this handicap.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Madrid

Serie A

AC Milan vs. Lazio

Two of Serie A’s top teams throw down on Saturday when AC Milan hosts Lazio. Milan is the chalk because this happens on AC's home pitch at Giuseppe Meazza.

Also, Lazio is on a 2-match losing streak. But Milan has the Champions League Semifinals against rival Internazionale to think about.

Milan’s mind might be on the upcoming aggregate versus Inter instead of the match. Lazio can pull off the upset victory.

Soccer Betting Pick: Lazio

AS Roma vs. Internazionale

Like AC Milan versus Lazio, Internazionale faces off against a rival they may not be pumped to beat. Inter has the aggregate versus rival AC Milan coming up.

So we shouldn’t expect Inter to go all out when they’ve got a huge Champions League Semifinal match a few days afterwards. No doubt, Inter can win, but the best play is on the home team. At +164, the odds on Roma are more than fair.

Soccer Betting Pick: Internazionale

Atalanta vs. Juventus

Atalanta versus Juventus projects as one of this weekend’s more entertaining matches. Atalanta has won 3 with a loss and a draw in their last 5.

Juve has lost 3-of-4 with a draw but Juve’s last 2 losses were to Napoli and Internazionale. This is a step down for Juventus.

These two have drawn in the last couple of head-to-head matches. So although Juve’s odds attract, backing the draw is the best play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Internazionale
