Monchengladbach vs. RB Leipzig

Gladbach has lost 2-of-4 with a couple of draws. The home team in this fell to Leverkusen and Bayern. The draws came against Darmstadt and Augsburg.

Leipzig has won 4 straight. The road chalk won each of the 4 matches by at least 2 goals. In the last head-to-head, Leipzig rolled Monchengladbach 3-0. Another 3-0 victory is possible.

Soccer Betting Pick: RB Leipzig

English Premier League

Manchester City vs. Nottingham Forest

Nottingham shows 2 wins, 2 losses, and a draw. The underdog in this appears to be playing well enough to keep the score closer than the handicap line.

Still, the Sky Blues have dominated in their last 3. However, outside of beating Fulham 5-1, the Citizens didn’t win the other two matches by more than 2 goals. The .25 makes it impossible to back the home chalk.

Soccer Betting Pick: Nottingham Forest

Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Both teams are playing excellent soccer. Arsenal is on a 3-match winning streak. Tottenham is on a 2-match winning streak.

The Gunners beat the Hotspur 2-0 in the last match. The game happened back in January when both teams were different than they are now. That one difference that should give Tottenham’s fans confidence heading to Arsenal is that the Hotspur is playing better without Harry Kane.

Although surprising, it makes sense. Kane’s absence has allowed Richarlison and Son Heung-Min to flourish. Both are playing the best soccer of their careers. The +300 odds make Tottenham the pick.

Soccer Betting Pick: Tottenham Hotspur

Chelsea vs. Aston Villa

Just when we thought the Blues had turned the corner, things go south again. Chelsea comes off a loss to Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge on their pitch and a draw versus Bournemouth.

Neither one of those squads has the talent that Aston Villa possesses. Not only that, but Aston has won 4-of-5. AV’s lone loss came versus the Reds at Anfield. Back the dog to cash.

Soccer Betting Pick: Aston Villa

La Liga

Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo

In their last couple of matches, Barca has throttled Real Betis and Antwerp. Barcelona beat both via 5-0 scores. The win over Antwerp came in Barca’s first Champions League group stage match.

Celta lost their last. We’d give more credit to the road dog for keeping it close, the loss was 1-0, if Celta wasn’t at home and if the contest didn’t happen versus Mallorca. Barcelona covers.

Soccer Betting Pick: Barcelona

Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid

Atletico is in much worse form than Real. AM lost to Valencia in a 3-0 match on Sep 16. Then in their Champions League match versus Lazio, the best Atletico could do is was score a 1-1 draw.

Real beat Union Berlin 1-0 in their first CL game. The victory came on the heels of 5 straight victories to start the La Liga season. For sure, Atletico will step it up. But stepping it up won’t be enough. The road squad gets the nod.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Madrid
