Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – January 16th, 2023

By Hank Blaine

Our top soccer betting picks this week start on Thursday when Tottenham throws down against Man City in an English Premier League match and Real Madrid takes on Villareal in a Copa del Rey game. On Friday, an important Bundesliga match happens when Bayern travels to Leipzig. The action picks up on Sunday with three matches that made our list, including a Serie A throw down between Atalanta and Juventus.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (January 16, 2023)

English Premier League

Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Both teams head into this after losses. Tottenham dropped their last by 2 goal in a match against Premier League leader Arsenal.

City fell to their main rivals, Manchester United. Before losing to United, the Sky Blues fell to one of the EPL’s worst teams, Southampton. No doubt, the Hotspur will put up a fight. But Man City remains one of the leagues top teams even if they’ve hit a rough patch. Sky Blues roll.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester City

Spanish Copa del Rey

Villarreal vs. Real Madrid

Real Madrid looks to bounce back after a stunning defeat in the Supercopa on Sunday. Facing rival Barcelona, Real failed big time, falling by 2 goals in a 3-1 match. It was a bad El Clasico for El Blanco.

Villarreal drew 1-1 versus Celta Vigo in their last. Before the draw, the home team in this had won 4 straight. One of the wins was a 2-1 victory over Real. There’s nothing to imply a similar outcome won’t happen on Thursday.

Soccer Betting Pick: Villarreal

German Bundesliga

RB Leipzig vs. Bayern Munich

Bayern has a 6-point lead over third place Leipzig on the Bundesliga standings, which is why this match is ultra-important. What makes it more interesting is that both teams head into this playing great soccer.

Bayern shows 4 wins and a draw in their last 5. Home team Leipzig has won 5 straight. Bayern beat Leipzig 5-3 in the last head-to-head. On Friday, the team has a real good chance of turning the tables and exacting their revenge.

Soccer Betting Pick: RB Leipzig

Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Bayer Leverkusen

Gladbach versus Leverkusen should be one of this weekend’ top soccer matches. Leverkusen has played like a team on a mission, winning 5 straight.

Ah, but two of the victories happened in club friendly matches. Monchengladbach has won just 2-of-4 and hasn’t played since Nov. 11. Still, Gladbach beat Dortmund in the Nov. 11 match and this happens on their pitch. Backing the home squad makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: Borussia Monchengladbach

La Liga

Athletic Bilbao vs. Real Madrid

Things don’t get easier for Real on Sunday. El Blanco takes on Bilbao a few days after throwing down against Villareal.

But although Bilbao is a quality La Liga squad, Real should break a 2-match losing streak. RM remains one of UEFA’s top teams. So give the road side the nod in this one.

Soccer Betting Pick: Borussia Monchengladbach

Serie A

Juventus vs. Atalanta

Juve had played great up until a Jan. 13 match versus Napoli. The home team in this had won 4 straight before facing Serie A’s best team this season.

Napoli crushed Juventus 5-1. Juve’s defense had no answer for the Napoleons. On Sunday, Juve faces a tough Atalanta side that has won 2 straight.

For sure, the home team can win this. But Atalanta offers overlay odds. Also, Juve could step onto the pitch continuing to suffer mentally from the massive beating Napoli handed them.

Soccer Betting Pick: Atalanta
