Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – February 26th Edition

Written by on February 26, 2018

There never seems to be a week that passes where we don’t have an intense soccer betting action on tap, and this one is no different. The domestic leagues are back as we take a quick break from Champions League play, as we have some Serie A and English Premier League contests to look forward to the next few days. There are an awful lot of games to wager on this week, so let’s check the latest soccer odds while offering up some picks along the way.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – February 26th Edition

Cagliari vs. Napoli

  • When: Monday, February 26
  • Tournament: Italian Serie A
Napoli continues to hold on to a slender 1-point lead over Juventus at the top of Serie A, and they would certainly be expected to maintain that with a win over Cagliari on Monday. You need to go back to 2009 to find the last time Cagliari beat Napoli, and it has been Napoli that has won each of the last 4 meetings by a combined score of 14-1. I think we are going to see another lopsided affair here as Napoli continue their quest for the Scudetto. Score Prediction: Cagliari 0 – Napoli 3

Swansea City vs. Sheffield Wednesday

  • When: Tuesday, February 27th
  • Tournament: FA Cup
Tuesday brings us an FA Cup replay, as Championship side Sheffield Wednesday head to Wales to face Swansea of the Premier League. There was very little between these two in the first game, and I think we can expect another tight one here. Swansea is currently in the relegation zone in the EPL, and the pressure is on them to bring some joy to the fans with an FA Cup run. I think we might just see a bit of an upset here. Score Prediction: Swansea 1 – Sheffield Wednesday 2

Tottenham vs. Rochdale

  • When: Wednesday, February 28
  • Tournament: FA Cup
With Champions League football still on the table, the last thing that Tottenham probably wanted on their schedule was an FA Cup replay, but that is what they got after drawing 2-2 against Rochdale a couple of weeks back. This is the second straight round where Spurs have needed a replay to dispose of lesser competition, after struggling to finish off Newport in the last round. Tottenham looks like a safe Soccer Betting Pick against Rochdale. Realistically, this is all about making some much-needed money for the visiting club, as you really would expect them to struggle on the road against Premier League opposition. Score Prediction: Tottenham 3 – Rochdale 0

Arsenal vs. Manchester City

  • When: Thursday, March 1
  • Tournament: English Premier League
It’s not very often that we get to see the same two teams go head to head twice in a matter of days, but that is what we are getting with this match-up. Manchester City and Arsenal met in the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday, with City hoisting the trophy with a convincing 3-0 win. They will head back to London to face Arsenal at the Emirates on Thursday afternoon as they look to get one step closer to clinching the Premier League title. Arsenal really did not put up much of the fight in the final over the weekend and looked seriously outclassed for large portions of that game. I think we are going to see more of the same on Thursday, with City cruising to another win. Score Prediction: Arsenal 1 – Manchester City 3
