Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (August 21, 2023)

English Premier League

Chelsea vs. Luton Town

Neither squad is in great form. After two Premier League matches, Chelsea has a draw, at home versus Liverpool, and a 3-1 loss to West Ham on the road.

Luton Town has played a single Premier match. It didn’t go well. Brighton dusted Luton 4-1. However, Brighton could be better than the Blues this season. At +1.75, the dog is the play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Luton Town +1.75 -110

Manchester United vs. Nottingham Forest

United struggled in their last, a 2-0 loss to Tottenham. Before falling to the Hotspur, Man U beat Wolverhampton 1-0.

Nottingham bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Arsenal with a 2-1 victory over Sheffield. The underdog in this is playing well enough to force a draw. Also, the Red Devils don’t have a top striker on the roster until Rasmus Hojlund returns from injury. Taking the +1.5 makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: Luton Town +1.75 -110

Newcastle United vs. Liverpool

The Premier League’s top matchup this weekend pits home squad Newcastle against Liverpool. The Reds dominated Bournemouth 3-1 in their last. In their first match, Pool drew 1-1 against Chelsea in a contest that happened at Stamford Bridge.

Newcastle fell to the Sky Blues in their last. But the game happened at Etihad Stadium and the loss was by a goal. Newcastle has home pitch advantage. That gives the chalk the edge.

Soccer Betting Pick: Newcastle United +113

Serie A

AC Milan vs. Torino

American Christian Pulisic has found a home. In his AC Milan debut, Pulisic scored an awesome goal and seamlessly worked with Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao.

Torino drew 0-0 versus Cagliari in their first match. Beating a quality squad like Torino by more than a goal won’t be easy. But the Pulisic, Giroud, and Leao triumvirate will get it done.

Soccer Betting Pick: AC Milan -1 -106

La Liga

Celta Vigo vs. Real Madrid

After an 0-2 loss to Osasuna in their first, Celta bounced back with a decent 1-1 draw versus Sociedad. The game happened at Sociedad. So drawing versus a quality team tells us Celta is improved from last season.

Real is playing lights out. Whether Real secures Kylian Mbappe’s services or not, El Blanco is the chalk to win La Liga. A 2-0 victory over Bilbao and a 3-1 win against Almeria tells us what we must know about how good Real is.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Madrid -152

Villarreal vs. Barcelona

Both squads won their last. Villarreal beat Mallorca 1-0. Barca dusted Cadiz 2-0 in a match that took place at Camp Nou.

Barcelona must travel to Villarreal on Sunday. The home dog is playing well enough to score the victory. But we must assume Barcelona puts it into gear. The draw is the logical bet.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Madrid -152
