Top Soccer Betting Picks for the Week – February 25th Edition
Wednesday, Feb. 27
English Premier League
- Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur
Chelsea played well enough to push Manchester City to penalty kicks in the Carabao Cup Final, but they’ll have a tough time keeping it close against Tottenham. The last time they fought the Hotspur, they beat Tottenham 2-1.
Still, Tottenham had been awesome, outscoring opponents a combined 7-1 in 3 straight matches, before an inexplicable 0-3 loss to Burnley. The Hotspur should bounce back with a huge victory.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Tottenham 1, Chelsea 0
Saturday, March 2
English Premier League
- Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal
After battling Chelsea on Wednesday, the Hotspur must then contend with Arsenal on Saturday. Arsenal travels to Tottenham, which should give the edge to the Hotspur. However, taking on Chelsea and Arsenal back-to-back isn’t a recipe for success.
Tottenham is only 3-2 versus Arsenal in the last 5 head-to-head matches. Arsenal should offer excellent odds to win this one straight up while Tottenham might still suffer from a tough battle with Chelsea on Wednesday.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Arsenal 3, Tottenham 1
La Liga Primera Division
- Real Madrid vs Barcelona
The El Clasico is one of the greatest rivalries in sport. The battle between Real Madrid and Barcelona has lost some luster with Ronaldo going to Juventus during the offseason. This should be a great matchup, though, because both Real and Barcelona are playing well.
The last time these two battled each other, it was a draw. In fact, there’s been 2 draws in the last 4 matchups. The draw should offer decent odds because Barcelona will be favored. However, Barca has 3 draws in their last 5 matches.
Tough to look past the draw in this Saturday’s El Clasico.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Real Mardid 2, Barcelona 2
Sunday, March 3
Italian Serie A
- Napoli vs Juventus
Napoli beat Juventus last April 22, but that was before Juventus acquired Ronaldo. In September, Juventus dominated Napoli 3-1. Juventus has played at a high level, going 3-1-1 with their only loss to Atletico Madrid on the road in the Champions League.
But, Napoli’s outscored their last 4 opponents a combined 9-0. They can pull off the upset since Juventus must travel to take on their top Italian Serie A rivals.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Napoli 2, Juventus 1
