Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (November 14, 2022)

International Friendly

Peru vs. Paraguay

  • When: Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Peru -102 // Paraguay +260

Both Peru and Paraguay play in CONMENBOL. So we should expect an entertaining and highly competitive match. Peru is the chalk because this happens on their soil.

The Peruvians dusted rival El Salvador 4-1 in their last match, another international friendly. Paraguay didn’t win their last, but they did draw 0-0 versus World cup participant Morocco. Paraguay can get it done at decent odds.

Soccer Betting Pick: Paraguay

Ghana vs. Switzerland

  • When: Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Ghana +306 // Switzerland -127

Both teams will use this match to tighten the screws in hopes of deep World Cup runs. Among the two teams, the Swiss have the better chance of making it to the knockout stage.

In their last 3 matches, the Swiss have beaten Portugal, Spain, and the Czech Republic. No nation wants to step onto Qatar’s soil after a loss. The Swiss win.

Soccer Betting Pick: Switzerland

Japan vs. Canada

  • When: Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Japan -133 // Canada +391

In their last 5, Japan and Canada have both lost twice, won twice, and drawn once in their last 5. Not only do these two have similar form, but they also both drew in their last match.

Japan drew against Ecuador, a fellow World Cup participant. Canada drew against Bahrain. Japan played the much better team. Backing the Japanese makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: Japan

Iraq vs. Costa Rica

  • When: Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Iraq +188 // Costa Rica +121

Iraq drew 0-0 versus Ecuador in their last. The Ecuadorians weren’t going all out because they knew they had to open the tournament on Nov. 20.

Costa Rica has won 4-of-5. The lone blemish was a 2-2 draw versus World Cup participant South Korea. Los Ticos is the play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Costa Rica

Portugal vs. Nigeria

  • When: Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Portugal -357 // Nigeria +962

Portugal didn’t play great in their Nations League matches. Ronaldo’s squad beat the Czech Republic but lost to Switzerland and Spain.

But Portugal should be able to start their second team, or even third, and score at least a goal versus Nigeria. The often powerful Nigerian side didn’t have it this World Cup cycle, failing to qualify during AFC play. Nigeria falls.

Soccer Betting Pick: Portugal

2022 Qatar World Cup

Qatar vs. Ecuador

  • When: Sunday, Nov. 20, 2022

  • Soccer Odds: Qatar +228 // Ecuador +116

victory a 1-0 game against Cape Verde Islands. So if Qatar is playing so well, why is the home team during this World Cup the underdog in their first match?

Ecuador hasn’t gone all out for victories in their international friendly tournaments. The Ecuadorians had to work hard versus Colombia, Uruguay, Brazil, and Argentina to qualify. Ecuador proves that South American teams are far better than many realize.

Soccer Betting Pick: Ecuador
