Top Soccer Betting Picks for the Week – August 5th Edition
Saturday, August 10th
English Premier League: West Ham United vs Manchester City
Manchester City officially kicks off their title defense on Saturday, August 10. Man City looked great in the FA Community Shield versus Liverpool last Sunday. Most expect Liverpool to challenge Manchester City for EPL dominance this season.
Man City has continued to play well since the end of the 2018-2019 English Premier League Season. They’re 4-1 SU in their last 5. The loss happened to rival Wolverhampton on penalty kicks. The defending champs should show why they’re favored to repeat.
Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester City
International Champions Cup: Atletico Madrid vs Juventus
What a fantastic match in the International Champions Cup on Saturday! Atletico is on fire. They’ve won their last 5. No victory was as impressive as dominating rival Real Madrid 7-3 on July 26. On July 21, Atletico beat the MLS All-Stars 3-0.
Juventus has played two matches since their final Italian Serie A battle on May 26. They took on Tottenham at the International Champions Cup and lost 3-2. Then on July 24, they drew with Internazionale 1-1. Although Juventus always has a chance, Atletico Madrid is playing at too high of a level to lose.
Soccer Betting Pick: Atletico Madrid
Sunday, August 11th
English Premier League: Leicester City vs Wolverhampton
Leicester is 4-1-0 in their last 5 matches. All friendlies, Leicester City beat Cheltenham Town, Cambridge United, Stoke City, and Atalanta. They drew with Rotherham United.
Wolverhampton has gone 4-0 since their loss to Liverpool on May 12. They’ve beaten the Crusaders twice, Newcastle United once, and then beat Man City on penalties. They should play Leicester City tough in this. It’s hard to see a team taking it in regulation, though. Let’s go with the draw.
Soccer Betting Pick: Draw
English Premier League: Manchester United vs Chelsea
The top English Premier League match of the weekend takes place on Sunday when Man U. battles Chelsea. The Blues beat Barcelona 2-1 in a friendly on July 23. Other than that, their form hasn’t been all that inspiring.
Manchester United beat Internazionale, Tottenham, and AC Milan on penalty kicks at the International Champions Cup. Rumors swirl that Lukaku is going to Inter Milan and that United is signing Dybala away from Juventus. Maybe. Maybe, not. It won’t have an affect on this game. Man United wins.
Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester United
