Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (May 22, 2023)

English Premier League

Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Manchester City

Man City beat Chelsea 1-0 on May 21 to secure their fifth title in the past six English Premier League seasons. But just because the Sky Blues are this season’s EPL champs, it doesn’t mean they don’t want to beat Brighton on Wednesday.

Still, the home dog is in decent form. Brighton has won 3-of-5, including their last, a 3-1 victory over Southampton. The home dog prevails.

Soccer Betting Pick: Brighton & Hove Albion

Manchester United vs. Chelsea

The Blues have 3 losses, a draw, and a win in their last 5. Chelsea’s last, the loss to Man City that handed the Citizens the Premier title, was a great performance. The Blues faced City at Etihad and yielded a single score.

United will ride a 2-match winning streak into this. The Red Devils beat Wolverhampton 2-0 on May 13 and got by AFC Bournemouth on 1-0 on May 20. United is playing too well to go against.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester United

Chelsea vs. Newcastle United

On May 18, Newcastle blasted Brighton 4-1. The win happened on the road, which might explain why Newcastle is the slight favorite in this.

But although Chelsea isn’t in excellent form, the Blues are a decent team on their pitch at Stamford Bridge. Give Chelsea a shot to beat Newcastle in preparation for what should be a rocking offseason for the Blues.

Soccer Betting Pick: Chelsea


FC Cologne vs. Bayern Munich

  • When: Wednesday, May 24, 2023

  • Soccer Odds: FC Cologne +1.75 -109 // Bayern Munich -1.75 -109
  • Cologne versus Bayern will be a close match. It will be so close that we should jump all over the +1.75 odds at -109 on home team Cologne.

    Bayern heads into this after losing 1-3 straight up to RB Leipzig. The match happened on Bayern’s pitch. So no excuses. Grab the healthy handicap on Cologne to cash.

    Soccer Betting Pick: FC Cologne

    Serie A

    Inter Milan vs. Atalanta

    Earlier this month, Atalanta struggled. The road dog in this lost to Juventus by 2 goals on May 7 and dropped a match to Salernitana via a 1 goal on May 13. But in their last, Atalanta played well, beating Hellas Verona 3-1.

    Inter Milan lost by 2 goals to Napoli in their last. Inter won’t be going all out in matches until their Champions League Final against Man City. Still, beating Atalanta should be easier than getting by the Napoleons. Give the home a team a shot to cover the spread.

    Soccer Betting Pick: Inter Milan

    Juventus vs. AC Milan

    The odds make both teams playable. But although AC Milan can win this match, backing the road underdog is tough.

    AC beat Sampdoria 5-1 in their last. They could bounce. This happens in Turin, which gives Juve the edge. So although the home team lost their last recorded match, a Europa contest versus Sevilla, Juventus is the play.

    Soccer Betting Pick: Juventus
