Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (October 23, 2023)

UEFA Champions League

Newcastle United vs. Borussia Dortmund

Both squads show almost the exact same form. The difference between the two is that Newcastle is dominating opponents while Dortmund is squeaking by.

The Bundesliga squad beat Werder Bremen 1-0 in their last. Versus AC Milan in their last Champions League match, Dortmund drew 0-0.

Newcastle has won 4-of-5, including dusting PSG 4-1 in a CL match, with a draw on the road versus rival West Ham. Newcastle is at home for this. The EPL team wins.

Soccer Betting Pick: Newcastle United

Paris Saint-Germain vs. AC Milan

Serie A squad AC Milan heads into this off a loss. AC fell at home to Juventus on Oct 22. Before losing to Juve, Milan had won 3 with the draw against Dortmund in their last 4.

Paris Saint-Germain is on a 2-match winning streak after beating Stade Rennais and Strasbourg. PSG, though, must step it up to get by AC. If the odds difference wasn’t so much, we’d consider a bet on the home team. But because Milan is at +330, we have to take a shot.

Soccer Betting Pick: AC Milan

UEFA Europa League

Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Ajax Amsterdam

Ajax is often the best team in the Dutch Eredivisie but that’s not the case this season. In their last 5, Ajax has lost 3 and drawn twice. All 3 losses came versus Dutch Eredivisie rivals.

Brighton isn’t in great form. The home squad in this shows a couple of draws and a loss in their last 3. The loss came versus Man City on the road and it happened via a 2-1 score.

Ajax shouldn’t win this. However, Brighton has scored more than a goal just twice in their last 5. Taking the +1.5 on Amerstdam is the play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Newcastle United

La Liga

Barcelona vs. Real Madrid

Both teams are in good enough form to win this. The match happens in Barcelona. So Barca has an edge.

Real Madrid has settled into life without Karim Benzema. On the flip side, Ilkay Gundogan has begun to assert himself. Still, Barca will play without Lewa, which should open the door for a Real victory.

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Madrid

English Premier League

Manchester United vs. Manchester City

Most don’t expect the weekend’s other top rivalry match to be as competitive as Real versus Barcelona. Most feel United isn’t close to Man City’s level.

So although the match happens at Old Trafford, the Sky Blues should have no trouble scoring the victory, right?

Maybe not. City has lost 3-of-5. All 3 losses were Premier matches. The odds make Man U more than playable.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester United

Serie A

Napoli vs. AC Milan

Napoli broke a 2-match losing streak in their last with a 3-1 win against Verona. The Napoleons take on FC Union Berlin on Tuesday so check those results if you have yet to decide which team to back.

Our gut says Napoli pulls it out. But odds wise, we can’t go against AC Milan. The road team in this offers an above 2-to-1 payout. AC gets their second nod of the week.

Soccer Betting Pick: AC Milan
