Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (January 15th, 2024)


RB Leipzig vs. Bayer Leverkusen

Leipzig is the favorite because this happens on RB’s pitch. But Leverkusen is the top team in the Bundesliga so far this season.

The +160 underdog shows 45 points, 4 points ahead of Bayern and 12 points ahead of Leipzig. Although Leipzig for sure can win this, the +160 makes Leverkusen more than playable. Back the Bundesliga Standings leader to cash.

Soccer Betting Pick: Bayer Leverkusen

English Premier League

Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace

At first glance, this is a no-brainer. Arsenal easily covers. But a closer look, and the reason Crystal offers a -123 payout at +1.5, is because the Gunners are in awful form.

Arsenal heads into this on a 3-match losing streak: 0-2 versus West Ham, 1-2 against Fulham, and 0-2 versus Liverpool in an FA Cup match. Take the 1.5 goals on Crystal.

Soccer Betting Pick: Crystal Palace

AFC Bournemouth vs. Liverpool

So far, Liverpool is proving last season was an anomaly. As of January 15, Pool has a 2 points lead over Aston Villa and Man City atop the Premier Standings.

Although the Reds are playing excellent soccer, they’re an underlay at -145, though. Bournemouth is on fire. The home team in this has won 4-of-5. The lone loss in the last 5 came against Tottenham on the road. Backing the home dog makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: AFC Bournemouth

Serie A

Udinese vs. AC Milan

Milan is back to playing excellent soccer. The lone loss in the last 5 games against Atalanta in a Coppa Italia matchup. Like most UEFA teams, AC Milan may not be taking their national league matches as seriously as their UEFA league matches.

Also, Atalanta is a decent Serie A squad. Udinese shows a single victory in their last 5. The chalk gets it done.

Soccer Betting Pick: AC Milan

Lecce vs. Juventus

Juve is on fire. In their last form cycle, Juventus is 5-0 with victories over Frosinone, AS Roma, Salernitana back-to-back, and Frosinone again in their last.

In their last 5, Lecce has dropped 3-of-4 with a 1-1 draw against Cagliari. The home dog will fight hard, but Juve is too good of a club to fall to Lecce.

Soccer Betting Pick: Juventus

La Liga

Real Betis vs. Barcelona

Barca had been playing decent soccer, but in their last, Robert Lewandowski and his mates crashed back to earth. Barcelona lost 4-1 to Real Madrid in the latest El Clasico, a Super Copa match.

Betis won their match, beating Granada 1-0. For sure, Lewa, Gudogan, and their buds should get back on the winning track. But at +300, the home team is an overlay.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Betis
