Top Soccer Betting Picks for the Week – February 17th Edition
Tuesday, Feb. 18
- Champions League: Atletico Madrid +222 / Liverpool +120
Liverpool has dominated their competition. Most of the domination has happened in EPL matches. Atletico Madrid’s form has gotten better. They’ve got a single loss in their last 4. That happened against Real Madrid. Real is one of the top teams in the world. But although Atletico has a shot, we can’t pass up on the above even money odds on Pool. Back Liverpool.
Soccer Betting Pick: Liverpool
- Champions League: Dortmund +185 / Paris St. Germain +117
Give Dortmund a shot in this match. Paris St. Germain offers favorite odds. Maybe, they shouldn’t. PSG has 4 wins and a draw in their last 5. The draw throws up red flags. The faves allowed SC Amiens to score 4 goals against them. Dortmund can upset PSG on Tuesday.
Soccer Betting Pick: Dortmund
Saturday, Feb. 22
- Premier League: Chelsea -123 / Tottenham +287
The Blues are overvalued in this matchup. Chelsea has a couple of wins, a couple of draws, and a loss in their last 5. Tottenham is surging. The Hotspur have won 3 and drawn twice in their last 5. Take the better than fair odds on the dog.
Soccer Betting Pick: Tottenham
- Premier League: Leicester City +313 / Manchester City -140
UEFA handed out a 2-year Champions League ban to Manchester City this week. That should motivate them to dominate Leicester, right? Not so fast. Manchester City has underperformed in the English Premier League all season. Leicester has drawn in their last 2 while Man City is 0-2 in their last 2. Give Leicester a chance.
Soccer Betting Pick: Leicester City
Real Madrid hasn’t beaten Levante by more than a goal in the last 5 head-to-head matchups. But Real is on fire. They head into this off a 4-1 beat down of Osasuna. RM can dominate Levante on Saturday. Lay the 1 ½.
