Top Soccer Betting Picks for the Week – July 22nd Edition
Tuesday, July 23
AC Milan vs Bayern Munich
- International Champions Cup: AC Milan +307 / Bayern Munich -133
After a 1-2 loss to Arsenal in their first International Champions Cup match on July 17, Bayern bounced back 3 days later with a smashing 3-1 victory over Real Madrid. The win signals that Bayern is back on track.
They might be vulnerable to the upset in this match, though. Although AC hasn’t played competitively since May 26, they did end their Italian Serie A season with 4 straight victories. Also, at the 2017 International Champions Cup, AC Milan beat Bayern Munich 4-0. The dog is worth backing here.
Soccer Betting Pick: AC Milan
Thursday, July 25
Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur
- International Champions Cup: Manchester United +152 / Tottenham Hotspur +154
It never gets tiring to watch Man U take on the Hotspur. Tottenham beat Juventus 3-2 in their first International Champions Cup match. It was the Hotspur’s first battle since an 0-2 loss to Liverpool at the Champions League Final on June 1.
Manchester United has won 3 in a row. 2 of the wins were friendlies, though. The third victory was a 1-0 win over Internazionale. Man U beat Tottenham 1-0 in the last head-to-head. Tottenham should turn the tables on their rivals in this match on Thursday.Soccer Betting Pick: Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday, July 27
Minnesota United vs Vancouver Whitecaps
- MLS Betting Odds: TBA
Minnesota is in excellent form. They have gone 4-1-0 in their last 5 matches: 3-1 over San Jose, 3-2 over Montreal, 6-1 over New Mexico United in the U.S. Cup, and 1-0 over FC Dallas. The draw happened versus Real Salt Lake.
While Minnesota United has played great, the Vancouver Whitecaps have struggled. Vancouver is 0-5 straight up in their last 5 matches. Minnesota should most definitely win. Save for a 0-1 loss to Seattle on June 29, the Whitecaps have lost by at least 2 goals. That makes Minnesota the play on the handicap.
Soccer Betting Pick: Minnesota United handicap
Portland Timbers vs L.A. Galaxy
- MLS Betting Odds: TBA
The L.A. Galaxy host the Portland Timbers on Saturday. The Galaxy and Timbers have split a couple of matches this year. In the first match, the Galaxy beat Portland 2-1. The Timbers dominated in the second match. Portland beat L.A. 4-0.
The Galaxy can play great at times. They can play badly at other times. That’s why they’ve split wins and losses in their last 5. Portland hasn’tlost in 5 straight. They’ve drawn in their last 2 and beat FC Dallas, New York FC, and LAFC in the previous 3 matches. Portland gets the nod to beat the Galaxy on July 27.
Soccer Betting Pick: Portland Timbers
