Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – May 8, 2023

By Hank Blaine

First leg Champions League Semifinals happen early in the week. Later in the week, terrific matchups take place in the Europa League Semifinals and in the English Premier. In the Europa Semis, AS Roma takes on Bayer Leverkusen and Juventus battles Sevilla. Check out soccer odds, analysis, and free picks for those two matches and for four Premier League throw downs.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (May 8, 2023)

Europa League Semifinals

AS Roma vs. Bayer Leverkusen

Neither team is playing great soccer. Home team AS Roma has a single victory in their last 5 and that was versus overmatched Feyenoord Rotterdam on April 20.

Bayer Leverkusen shows 2 wins, 2 draws and a loss in their last 5. 1 of the victories was a nice 2-0 win against RB Leipzig.

This can go either way, but Leverkusen offers much better odds than they should. The road underdog lost by a single goal to Cologne in their last and drew against Union Berlin in the match before facing Cologne. Back the overlay road squad to cash.

Soccer Betting Pick: Bayer Leverkusen

Juventus vs. Sevilla

Both teams are playing terrific soccer. Road dog Sevilla has 1 loss in their last 5. The loss came versus Girona on May 1. Sevilla bounced back after the loss with a terrific 3-2 win over Espanyol.

After losses to Inter and Napoli, Juventus bounced back in their last 2. Juve beat Lecce 2-1 on May 3 and Atalanta 2-0 on May 7. Juve is playing too well to lose on their pitch. Backing chalk makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: Juventus

English Premier League

Aston Villa vs. Tottenham

Tottenham had been in awful form, but in their last, the Hotspur prevailed. The road team in this had lost 3-of-5 with a draw until a 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace on May 6.

Aston Villa shows the opposite form. On April 15, Aston beat Newcastle 3-0. Then on April 25, Aston beat Fulham 1-0. However, in their last 2 games, Aston shows losses.

Although this looks like it can go either way, Tottenham shouldn’t win 2 straight while Aston shouldn’t lose 3 straight. The home team is the play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Aston Villa

Manchester United vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Although Wolverhampton won their last match, a 1-0 game versus Aston Villa, Man United should have no trouble covering the handicap.

United is on a 2-match losing streak versus Brighton & Hove and West Ham. Both losses were road tilts, though. Also, both losses were by a single goal.

Back at Old Trafford, the Red Devils should roll. United gets back on the winning track with a multiple-goal victory.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester United

Everton vs. Manchester City

Everton broke out with an excellent performance on May 8. A big time road chalk, the home team in this put a 5-1 beating onto Brighton.

On Sunday, Everton attempts to keep it going in a match versus Manchester City. The Sky Blue tackle Real Madrid in the first leg of a Champions League Semifinal aggregate on Tuesday.

City may not have their mind on business in this. Everton can keep this closer than the spread.

Soccer Betting Pick: Everton

Arsenal vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

Both teams have just 2 victories in the last 5. But although Brighton could bounce back from their last, a terrible loss to Everton, it’s impossible to back B&H given the odds on their opponent.

Arsenal is a point behind Man City on the Premier standings. A victory on Sunday could put the Gunners back into first place depending on what happens in Man City versus Everton.

Arsenal won’t allow a reeling Brighton team to right the ship in this. The Gunners prevail.

Soccer Betting Pick: Arsenal
