Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – March 20th Edition

Germany vs. Spain

  • Competition: International Friendly
  • When: Friday, March 23 at 2:45 PM
  • Where: Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany.
  • TV: ESPN3
  • Soccer Betting Odds: Germany +136
The previous two winners of the World Cup square off on Friday night as Germany hosts Spain in Dusseldorf. Joachim Low’s Nationalmannschaft wins it all in 2014 as they won the World Cup in Brazil, taking Spain’s crown after La Roja had earned the ultimate honor in football back in 2010. Germany has gone 4-2-0 in its last six matches while Spain has gone 5-1-0 over the same span. Germany will be without both Manuel Neuer and Marco Reus. Reus recently returned to action for Borussia Dortmund but has been omitted here, with Löw eager to ease him back into the fold gently after his eight-month absence through injury. Neuer is nearing a comeback from a broken foot while Mario Götze and Andre Schürrle are among the other high-profile stars that will be out of the lineup for Die Mannschaft’s upcoming friendlies against La Furia Roja and Brazil. Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara is also doubtful after suffering a foot injury in the Bundesliga leaders’ UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg victory against Besiktas. Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa has been recalled for the first time since June 2016, but Alvaro Morata, Cesc Fabregas, Juan Mata and former Dortmund defender Marc Bartra have all been left out.

Other International Friendly’s on Friday

  • Russia vs. Brazil
  • Netherlands vs. England
  • Argentine vs. Italy
  • France vs. Colombia

New England Revolution (1-0-1) vs. New York City FC (3-0-0)

  • Competition: MLS
  • When: Saturday, March 24 at 1:30 PM ET
  • Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA
  • Soccer Betting Odds: +137
The Revs opened up their 2018 campaign with a humbling 2-0 loss against Philadelphia in their opener before beating Columbus 2-1 in their second game of the season. New England sat idle as they get set to take on first-place NYCFC this coming weekend. Ismael Tajouri and Maximiliano Moralez scored 12 minutes apart in the second half and New York City FC won its third straight game to open the season. New York City FC should be your Soccer Betting Pick against New England. NYCFC didn’t look dominant at home against Orlando as they took to the pitch without star David Villa in the lineup — but did what was needed in the 2-0 win. The Pigeons are perfect, atop the East and the class of MLS so far in 2018. For this Saturday match, I wouldn’t think twice about backing the unbeaten New York City. FC is clearly the best team in MLS in the early stages of the season while New England clearly has some issues to address.

Vancouver Whitecaps (2-0-1) vs. L.A. Galaxy (1-0-1)

  • Competition: MLS
  • When: Saturday, March 24 at 10:00 PM ET
  • Where: BC Place, Vancouver, BC
  • Soccer Betting Odds: Vancouver Whitecaps -164
Josef Martinez scored his second hat trick of the young season as Atlanta United rolled over the 10-man Vancouver Whitecaps 4-1 on Saturday. An early red card on Kendall Watson doomed the Caps, so it’s kind of hard to hold that against them, overall. Anton Tinnerholm had his first MLS goal and David Villa scored another to help New York City FC beat the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 on Sunday, March 11. The Galaxy have had some time off following that loss, so they’ll be well-rested at the very least, which is why they should be your Soccer Betting Pick.
