Top Soccer Betting Picks for the Week – September 17th Edition

English Premier League

Saturday, Sep. 22

  • Newcastle United vs Crystal Palace FC
Newcastle hasn’t yet won in the English Premiere League this season, but they have kept it close in their last couple of matches. Manchester City beat Newcastle 2-1 on Sep. 1. Arsenal beat Newcastle 2-1 on Sep. 15. Both Arsenal and Manchester City are better than Crystal Palace FC, 1-0 victors over Huddersfield Town on Sep. 15. Crystal Palace did beat Southampton 1-0 on Sep. 1, though. It’s not like Crystal Palace has zero chance to beat home squad Newcastle on Saturday. In fact, this might be the perfect time to bet on the draw because neither squad is that much better than the other. Soccer Betting Prediction: Newcastle 1, Crystal Palace 1  

Sunday, Sep. 23

  • Everton vs Arsenal
Arsenal notched their third straight win after beating Newcastle 2-1 on Sep. 15. They’ve hung with top EPL squad Chelsea, drawing with Chelsea 1-1 on August 1 before losing 2-3 to Chelsea on August 18. Everton hasn’t yet shown that they can hang with a team as good as Arsenal. They’ve beaten Rotherham and Southampton this season, but they’ve drawn with Wolverhampton, Bournemouth, and Huddersfield Town. Arsenal should win. They probably should win by at least 2 goals. Soccer Betting Prediction: Arsenal 2, Everton 0

Spain – La Liga Primera Division

Is Real Madrid a safe bet this week?

Saturday, Sep. 22

  • Espanyol vs Real Madrid
Espanyol should have no chance versus Real Madrid on Sep. 22. Alaves beat Espanyol on Sep. 2 while the only team comparable to Real in La Liga, Barcelona, beat Alaves 3-0 on August 18. The question isn’t whether Espnayol can upset Real Madrid on Saturday, it’s how many goals Real beats Espanyol by. Real has outscored their last 3 La Liga opponents 10-2. They beat Getafe 2-0, and dominated both Girona and Leganes by 4-1 scores. Espanyol could hang and only lose by 2 goals on Saturday. That’s what they should shoot for. Soccer Betting Prediction: Real Madrid 2, Espanyol 0
  • Atletico Madrid vs Getafe
In 3 La Liga matches, Getafe’s defense has played well. Getafe hasn’t allowed any goals other than the 2 Real Madrid hung on them back on August. 19. So far, Atletico Madrid hasn’t looked a competitor to Barcelona’s and Real’s La Liga dominance. Celta Vigo beat them 2-0 on Sep. 1 while they drew with Eibar 1-1 on Sep. 15. This sets up for a 1-0 Getafe victory. Soccer Betting Prediction: Getafe 1, Atletico Madrid 0
