Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – October 9, 2023

By Hank Blaine

UEFA Leagues are on hiatus this week as some teams step onto pitches in an attempt to qualify for the UEFA European Championship. The two best matches during qualifying this week are Austria versus Belgium and France heading to the Netherlands to take on the Orange. After those two games on Friday, we switch our attention to Major Legue Soccer on Saturday. Then on Sunday, we’re back to UEFA European Championship Qualifying when Norway hosts Spain. Keep reading for soccer odds, analysis, and free picks for six of this week’s best soccer matchups.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (October 9, 2023)

UEFA European Championship Qualifying

Austria vs. Belgium

Both teams are playing great soccer. Belgium, the road favorite in this, has won 4-of-5 with a draw. The draw came against Austria in a June 17 UEFA EURO Championship qualifying match.

Austria has won 2 and drawn 3 times in their last 5. The Austrians faced Sweden in their last on Sep 17 and played well, beating the Swedes 3-1. This happens on Austria’s pitch, which should make the Austrians difficult to beat.

Soccer Betting Pick: Austria

Netherlands vs. France

France is 5-0 during UEFA European Championship Qualifying. The reason that’s important to note is because France doesn’t have to win this match.

The French are in first place with 15 points. The Netherlands is in second place and tied with Greece at 9 points. The Dutch will be all out to win while France may not be as aggressive as the normally are, which is why the Orange is the pick.

Soccer Betting Pick: Netherlands

Norway vs. Spain

On March 25 this year, Spain dusted Norway 3-0. Although the rematch happens on Norway’s pitch, El Rojo will be motivated to win in a similar fashion.

Both these teams are behind Scotland in their EURO Championship Qualifying group. The Scots hae 15 points and Norway and Spain have 9. Norway is a solid team, but the Spanish are better.

Expect Spain to win this by multiple goals. At -118, El Rojo is an overlay play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Spain

Major League Soccer

FC Dallas vs. Colorado Rapids

Home squad FC Dallas hasn’t won a match since a 3-1 victory over Real Salt Lake that happened on Sep 20. The -1 handicap line chalk hasn’t lost a match either, posting 4 straight draws.

Colorado doesn’t head into this playing great soccer. The Rapids fell to Houston in a 5-1 match in their last. In the last head-to-head that happened in Dallas, the chalk blasted Colorado 3-1. A similar 2-goal win should happen.

Soccer Betting Pick: FC Dallas

Nashville SC vs. New England Revolution

On Sep 30, New England beat Charlotte 3-1 but since then, the form has gone south. The Revolution head into this matchup on a 2-match skid, losing to Columbus 2-1 and falling to Orlando City 3-2.

Nashville shows 3 draws and a loss in their last 4. The home team should win this, but the form suggests New England makes any regulation victory tough. The draw is the play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Draw

LA Galaxy vs. Real Salt Lake

These two have faced off twice this year. Salt Lake has a victory and the Galaxy have a win. For sure, LA Galaxy has an edge in this because the game happens on their pitch.

But Real Salt Lake has won 2-of-3 with a 1-goal loss to Sporting Kansas City. Not only that, but RSL won the last head-to-head 3-2. Give the road team a chance./p>

Soccer Betting Pick: Real Salt Lake
