Top Soccer Betting Picks for the Week – April 1st Edition

Newcastle United vs Crystal Palace

  • When: Saturday, April 6
  • English Premier League Odds: PK

Newcastle has been in decent form. In their last 5 matches, they’ve won 3 times with a loss and a draw. The wins were over Huddersfield Town, Burnley, and Everton, though. So, it’s not like Newcastle has dominated.

But, they have played better than Crystal Palace. The last couple of times Newcastle and Crystal Palace battled, they fought to a draw. A draw could happen on Saturday, but those battles were way back in 2018. Newcastle wins by a goal.

Soccer Betting Prediction: Newcastle 2, Crystal Palace 1

Juventus vs AC Milan

  • When: Saturday, April 6
  • Italian Serie A Odds: TBA

Juventus has beaten AC Milan in the last 5 head-to-head matches. Even in the game on Jan. 16 this year, Juventus came up big, beating their rivals 1-0. However, Ronaldo’s squad might have their minds on their Champions League match in a couple of weeks. If they’re not careful, AC Milan will upset them.

Although it’s nice to think AC Milan can beat their more talented rivals, the upset won’t happen on April 6. AC Milan heads into his match having lost 2 straight to Internazionale and Sampdoria. Neither one of those teams is as close to as talented as Juventus. Plus, Juventus battles AC Milan at home.

Score Prediction: Juventus 3, AC Milan 1

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid

The top match this week takes place in La Liga when Messi and Barcelona host Griezmann and Atletico Madrid. Greizmann and Atletico bounced out of their loss to Juventus with another loss to Atletico Bilbao. They got back on track on March 30 with a huge 4-0 win over Alaves, though.

Unfortunately for Madrid, they face a beast in Barcelona on Saturday. Barca hasn’t lost since Jan. 10 when Levante beat them in a Spanish Copa Del Rey first leg match. In the last match between these two, they drew 1-1. That shouldn’t happen on April 6.

Soccer Betting Prediction: Barcelona 3, Atletico Madrid 2

Everton vs Arsenal

In their last 5 games, Everton and Arsenal have the same exact record. They’ve each won a game, drew in a game, lost, and won two straight. Everton has really picked it up in recent matches.

But, Arsenal’s dominated them in the head-to-head. Everton’s last win over Arsenal was back on Dec. 13, 2016. Although that’s true, these two haven’t played since Sept. 23 last year. Everton has homefield advantage. They get the nod in a tough matchup.

Soccer Betting Prediction: Everton 2, Arsenal 1
