Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – August 6th Edition

Written by on August 6, 2018

As always, it’s going to be another busy week in the world of soccer, but if we are being totally honest, we are all just focused on one thing. The English Premier League is back in business this coming week, which is where we are going to place all our attention in this piece. The ball will get rolling with a Friday game before we hit the full slate of games on Saturday and Sunday. We are going to be taking a look at the teams likely to challenge for the title this season, so let’s get right into the EPL odds while making some soccer betting predictions.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – August 6th Edition

Manchester United vs Leicester – Friday

  • Soccer Betting Odds: Manchester United -225 / Leicester City +713 / Draw +331 (Total 2.5)
Much of the talk in the past week or so was that many of the players on the Manchester United squad have grown weary of the Mourinho way of doing business. It’s not really what fans want to hear with the new season about to begin, and it will be interesting to see how it all plays out. United will kick-off at home, with new signing Fred looking to impress in his debut. The visitors will be Leicester, a team that returned to business as usual after their stunning EPL win a couple of years back. It could be a long season for the Foxes, with an opening day loss the most likely outcome here. Score Prediction: Manchester United 2 – Leicester City 0

Newcastle United vs Tottenham – Saturday

  • Soccer Betting Odds: Newcastle United +278 / Tottenham +125 / Draw +241 (Total 2.5)
Tottenham Hotspur has been the near men of the EPL over the last couple of seasons, as they have not been able to maintain their title challenge from start to finish. They will have Harry Kane, Golden Boot winner at the World Cup, leading the charge again, but you need to wonder how long he will stay in London if this team continues to miss out on trophies. Tottenham will start with a tricky trip to Newcastle, a place that is always tough to go and play in. That said, I think Tottenham come out on top, if only just. Score Prediction: Newcastle 0 – Tottenham 1

Liverpool vs West Ham – Sunday

  • Soccer Betting Odds: Liverpool -380 / West Ham +1082 / Draw +495 (Total 3)
This is the first of what promises to be a cracking double-header this coming Sunday. Liverpool took a huge step forward last season, challenging for the title and making it all the way to the Champions League Final. There is no doubt that they are one of the most exciting offensive units in the league, led by Mo Salah, but they will need to get their defensive issues sorted out if they are to mount a serious challenge this season. Liverpool is one of the Soccer Betting favorites to win the English Premier League in 2018-19. They will welcome in a West Ham team who spent too much time in the bottom half of the league last season. I see a comfortable win for Liverpool here. Score Prediction: Liverpool 3 West Ham 1

Arsenal vs Manchester City – Sunday

  • Soccer Betting Odds: Arsenal +248 / Manchester City +104 / Draw +270 (Total 3)
The schedule makers have saved the best of the week for last, with the champions heading into the nation’s capital to face Arsenal in their season opener. It was a historic, record-breaking season for City last year, and they certainly have a tough act to follow this season. They are undoubtedly the favorites to win it all again, but this will be a tough start against an Arsenal team that will be heading in a new direction with a new coaching staff. I expect better from Arsenal this year, but I also expect them to lose this one. Score Prediction: Arsenal 1 – Manchester City 2
