Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (August 14, 2023)

FIFA Women’s World Cup

Sweden vs. Australia

Sweden has played great soccer during this tournament. The favorite to win the third place trophy upset the United States via penalty kicks in the Round of 16. Then in the quarterfinals, Sweden cooled off scorching Japan with a 2-1 victory.

Even in the loss to Spain in the semis the Swedes had a chance to win. But although Sweden is playing excellent soccer, this will be the favorite’s fourth straight difficult match. Before falling to England 3-1, Australia, the host nation, had skated by Denmark and beaten France via penalties. The crowd will heavily favor the underdog. The Aussies get the win.

Soccer Betting Pick: Australia

England vs. Spain

Spain played fantastic soccer to get by Sweden. The Spanish took a 1-0 lead at the eighty first minute. At the eighty seventh minute, Sweden equalized with a goal.

About a minute later, Spain got the go ahead goal. El Roja, for sure, can win the Women’s World Cup. But England won’t go down the way Sweden did.

The English beat Nigeria via penalty kicks after having to play most of the match without their top player, Lauren James, and only 9.

England beat Colombia 2-1 and Australia 3-1 without James. So the English believe they can beat anybody with or without James on the pitch. England gets the nod to win the 2023 Women’s World Cup.

Soccer Betting Pick: England

English Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United

United didn’t dominate Wolverhampton in their first Premier League match of the season. Man U did win, though, in a 1-0 match.

Tottenham struggled in their first match. The Hotspurs allowed Brentford to score 2 goals in a 2-2 draw. On Saturday, Tottenham faces a better team than Brentford. So although this happens on their pitch, the Tottenham falls in regulation.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester United

Manchester City vs. Newcastle United

In their first match, City beat Burnley 3-0. Burnley isn’t a good Premier squad. Newcastle is. So the Sky Blues are going to have a much tougher time securing a regulation win on Saturday than they did against Burnley.

Newcastle demolished a decent Premier squad, Aston Villa, in a 5-1 match in their first EPL contest. Newcastle is flying high right now. Also, City drew 1-1 versus Sevilla in the UEFA Supercup in their last match. The odds make the dog playable.

Soccer Betting Pick: Newcastle United

La Liga

Real Betis vs. Atletico Madrid

If Betis didn’t play this match on their grass, they’d be a +400 or higher underdog because Atletico looked great when beating Granada 3-1 in their first La Liga match of the season.

Like Atletico, Betis also won their first, taking down Villarreal 2-1 in an impressive road win. Betis could be a surprise team this season. Also, the odds make the home team an overlay.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Betis

Serie A

Udinese vs. Juventus

These two finished last season playing against each other. Juventus beat Udinese 1-0 on June 4. Since then, Juve has won 2-of-3 club friendlies, the victories came against Real Madrid and AC Milan, and a club friendly draw versus Atalanta.

Udinese brings a 2-match winning streak into this. The home underdog beat Leipzig 2-1 in a club friendly and then dusted Catanzaro 4-1 in a Coppa Italia match. The odds make the home squad the play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Udinese
