Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – August 13th Edition

Written by on August 13, 2018

After an opening weekend in the EPL that was fun to watch, we jump right into a new week with a ton of Soccer Betting action on tap. The qualifying round of the Champions League will continue this week, with several ties hanging in the balance. We also have another full slate of Premier League games to come next weekend, as well as the opening week in La Liga. A lot of action to cover, so let’s get right into the latest soccer odds for the top matches scheduled this week.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – August 13th Edition

AEK Athens vs Celtic

  • When: Tuesday, August 14th
  • Where: Athens Olympic Stadium
  • Competition: UEFA Champions League
  • Soccer Betting Odds: AEK Athens +152 / Celtic +213 / Draw +204
The Scottish champions are in a little bit of trouble after giving up an away goal in a 1-1 tie at Parkhead last week. They now know that their only way into the lucrative group stage of the Champions League is a win in Greece, which is not going to be an easy task. Celtic have made a poor start to the season, losing to Hearts over the weekend, yet I have a feeling that they are going to get the job done here. I like them to sneak the win, as I do believe that they have the players in the attacking side of the field who can turn this game. Score Prediction: AEK Athens 1 – Celtic 2

Tottenham vs Fulham

  • When: Saturday, August 18th
  • Where: Wembley Stadium
  • Competition: English Premier League
  • Soccer Betting Odds: Tottenham -352 / Fulham +995 / Draw +483
There were some who questioned the fact that Tottenham did nothing to strengthen their squad prior to deadline day, but the doubters will need to remain quiet for now, as Spurs went out and got a solid 2-1 win on the road in Newcastle in their season opener. Newly promoted Fulham did not fare quite as well, going down 2-0 to Crystal Palace in their return to the big time. Fulham looks to be in more trouble this weekend, as they should be outmatched here. Score Prediction: Tottenham 2 – Fulham 0

Chelsea vs Arsenal

  • When: Saturday, August 18th
  • Where: Stamford Bridge
  • Competition: English Premier League
  • Soccer Betting Odds: Chelsea -125 / Arsenal +331 / Draw +287
A London derby featuring a pair of teams who are starting the year with a new manager in charge. Chelsea got the result they wanted to start the season, beating Huddersfield 3-0 in a game that was nowhere near as convincing as the score suggests. Arsenal was always going to have a tough time opening against the champions, and they went down 2-0 to Manchester City in an unsurprising result. Chelsea is the slight Soccer Betting favorites against Arsenal. This is going to be an interesting one and is a game that Arsenal needs to get something out of, like losing their opening two games would be a bit of a disaster. I think we are looking at a draw here. Score Prediction: Chelsea 1 – Arsenal 1

Barcelona Vs Alaves

  • When: Saturday, August 18th
  • Where: Camp Nou
  • Competition: La Liga
  • Soccer Betting Odds: Barcelona -848 / Alaves +2141 / Draw +873
La Liga gets underway on Saturday, with the defending champions opening up at home against Alaves, a team that they have dominated in recent years. Alaves have managed just 1 win against Barcelona in recent memory, with that one coming back in 2016. That said, the previous two meetings were close, so this may not be the beating we are expecting, especially with so many Barcelona players sure to still be suffering a bit of a World Cup hangover. This should be a win for the champions at home, though. Score Prediction: Barcelona 3 – Alaves 1
