Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – May 20th, 2024

By Hank Blaine

It’s the final weekend of action in both Italian Serie A and Spanish La Liga, which is why odds for four of our six soccer plays for the week have yet to land. No worries. We know which teams will go off the favorites and which will be the underdogs. Keep reading for soccer odds where available, including odds on the UEFA Europa League Final on Wednesday and Saturday’s English FA Cup finale, analysis, and picks for six of this week’s top soccer plays.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (May 20th, 2024)

UEFA Europa League Final

Atalanta vs. Bayer Leverkusen

The match takes place at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, which means neither Serie A team Atalanta nor Bundesliga squad Bayer Leverkusen has home pitch advantage.

Atalanta is in excellent form after winning 4 of their last 5. But on Wednesday, Atalanta is up against a team that dominated Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund on their way to an easy Bundesliga title victory. Leverkusen has gone undefeated in the Bundesliga this season. The chalk gets it done.

Soccer Betting Pick: Bayer Leverkusen

English FA Cup Final

Manchester City vs. Manchester United

In the last couple of head-to-head matches, the first was on October 29 last year and then on March 3 this year, Man City has dominated United. City beat Man U 3-0 on the October 29 match.

Then on March 3, the Sky Blues dusted the Red Devils 3-1. Man City is working to take home an English Premier League title on May 19. Win or lose the Premier title, the Sky Blues won’t allow their rivals to get close to them on Saturday. Manchester City covers.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester City

La Liga

Sevilla vs. Barcelona

  • When: Saturday, May 25th, 2024. 8:00am ET.

  • Soccer Odds: TBA

Barcelona should beat Rayo Vallecano on May 19, which means Barca will have locked down second place in La Liga behind Real Madrid before kick off versus Sevilla.

Sevilla won’t play in either the Champions League or the Europa League next season because they will finish twelfth or thirteenth in La Liga. So for Sevilla, this is their championship game. The home team prevails.

Soccer Betting Pick: Sevilla

Real Sociedad vs. Atletico Madrid

  • When: Saturday, May 25th, 2024. 10:15am ET.

  • Soccer Odds: TBA

Atletico doesn’t have much of a chance of falling out of the La Liga top four. AM would love to leapfrog Girona and finish third behind Barcelona and Real Madrid, though.

So we should expect Atletico, which has won 4 straight heading into their May 19 matchup against Osasuna, to stand tall in this. AM gets the win.

Soccer Betting Pick: Atletico Madrid

Serie A

Juventus vs Monza

  • When: Saturday, May 25th, 2024. 12:00pm ET.

  • Soccer Odds: TBA

The last two matches for Juve are incredibly important. Inter and AC Milan will play in the Champions League next season. Juventus is tied with Bologna at 67 points.

Atalanta has 37 points. Juventus and Bologna battle on May 19. Win or lose that match, Juventus knows they must beat Monza on May 26. So give Juve the nod to cover what should be a -1.5 spread line.

Soccer Betting Pick: Juventus

Hellas Verona vs Internazionale

  • When: Sunday, May 26th, 2024. 2:45pm ET.

  • Soccer Odds: TBA

Inter’s Serie A record this season impresses big time. The league winner won 29 matches, drew 5 times, and suffered just 2 losses.

Hellas Verona suffered 18 losses. In the last 5 head-to-head matches going back to 2021, Inter Milan has won every single time. Lay the goals because this will be Inter’s last non-exhibition match until August.

Soccer Betting Pick: Juventus
