Top Soccer Betting Picks for the Week – Dec. 17th Edition

Saturday, Dec. 22

English Premier League

  • Arsenal vs Burnley

Arsenal’s got 10 wins, 4 draws, and only 3 losses in EPL this season. The perennial English Premier League Championship contender has been decent in their last four: beating Tottenham 4-2, drawing with Manchester United 2-2, beating Huddersfield Town 1-0, and losing 2-3 to Southampton.

Burnley has 11 losses in EPL. They should have no shot against Arsenal, who figures to beat them by at least 2 goals.

Soccer Betting Prediction: Arsenal 2, Burnley 0

  • Chelsea vs Leicester City

Chelsea remains in the hunt. They’ve stepped it up after the 1-2 loss to Wolverhampton. In fact, in their very next English Premier League match, they beat top squad Manchester City 2-0. Before their match with Leicester City on Saturday, Chelsea contends with Bournemouth in the English Carabao Cup.

Leicester City has a 6-4-7 record. 2 of the 7 losses occurred in their last couple of EPL matches: 0-2 to Tottenham and 0-1 to Crystal Palace. Leicester doesn’t appear to be in good enough form to take down Chelsea.

Not only that, but they must contend with Manchester City in the English Carabao Cup on Dec. 18. Chelsea takes this.

Soccer Betting Prediction: Chelsea 2, Leicester City 0


Sunday, Dec. 23

English Premier League

  • Everton vs Tottenham

Tottenham hasn’t drawn yet in the English Premier League. The team led by Harry Kane is a win behind Liverpool and Manchester City for the top spot in EPL. They’ve been fire in their last 4 matches: 3-1 over Southampton, 2-0 over Leicester City, a 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League, and a 1-0 victory over Burnley.

Everton’s got 2 draws, versus Newcastle and Watford, and a big loss to Manchester City in their last 3 matches. The 1-3 loss to Manchester City’s a sign of what could happen here. Tottenham wins by 2 goals.

Soccer Betting Prediction: Tottenham 3, Everton 0


Spain – La Liga Primera Division

  • Leganes vs Sevilla FC

Sevilla FC’s hanging with Barcelona atop the La Liga Primera Division. As of Dec. 16, Sevilla is only a win away from tying Barca. They’ve gone 3-1-0 in their last 4. The draw happened against Valladolid while they beat Krasnodar 3-0 in the UEFA Europa League and dominated Girona 2-0.

Leganes is near the bottom of the Primera Division with a 4-6-6 record. They often play for the tie although their 4-2 victory over Valladolid four matches ago did impress. Leganes could surprise here with a great game. Sevilla’s too good to lose, though. So, the draw’s the play.

Soccer Betting Prediction: Sevilla FC 1, Leganes 1
