European Soccer Leagues Top Games & Updates | December 2nd Edition
UEFA Top European Games this Weekend
- When: Saturday, Dec. 4 – Sunday, Dec. 5
Bayern Munich -120 vs Borussia Dortmund +245 | German Bundesliga – Matchday 14
- When: Saturday, Dec. 4 at 12:30 pm ET
No doubt, Bayern at Dortmund is the weekend’s biggest soccer match. Dortmund and Bayern are like Ohio State versus Michigan in college football.
Bayern has owned the head-to-head, though, winning the last 5. But things could be different on Saturday. Erling Haaland is healthy and on Nov. 27 he scored a goal in Borussia’s impressive 3-1 victory over Wolfsburg. Dortmund is the play.
Soccer Pick: Dortmund
Atalanta +220 vs Napoli +105 | Serie A – Matchday 15
- When: Saturday, Dec. 4 at 2:45 pm ET
Napoli maintains a lead on the Serie A standings, but the lead has shrunk to a single point. When it comes to this matchup, the home team is a play against.
Atalanta is on fire. The road squad has won 4-of-5. Atalanta has also won the last 2 head-to-head. Napoli has a single win, 2 losses, and 2 draws in their last 5. The odds make Atalanta an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Atalanta
Lazio +113 vs Sampdoria +210 | Serie A – Matchday 15
- When: Sunday, Dec. 5 at 12:00 pm ET
Lazio isn’t a lock to hand the home team a loss. The favored road squad shows a couple of wins, a couple of losses, and a draw in their last 5. Not only that, but Lazio only beat Sampdoria by a single goal in the last match between these two.
In the head-to-head before last, Sampdoria dusted Lazio 3-0. We must also question which squad is in better form. Both show just 2 wins in their last 5. Taking a shot on the home underdog makes sense.
Soccer Pick: Sampdoria
Real Madrid +115 vs Real Sociedad +220 | La Liga Primera Division – Matchday 16
- When: Saturday, Dec. 4 at 3:00 pm ET
Real Madrid has taken charge. The best team in La Liga now holds a 6-point lead over Atletico and Sociedad atop the standings.
Sociedad can cut into the lead on Saturday. The chances of that happening aren’t great. Real is playing like a machine and beating quality squads like Sevilla and Bilbao with ease. At +115, Real is an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Real Madrid
Liverpool -1 ½ (+124) vs Wolverhampton +1 ½ (-166) | English Premier League – Matchweek 14
- When: Saturday, Dec. 4 at 10:00 am ET
Pool is close to unplayable on the moneyline because the odds are so underlaid. Wolverhampton is also unplayable on the moneyline because the chances of the Wanderers winning this are less than the odds indicate.
So we’re left with the handicap. Although Wolverhampton should keep this to within a single goal loss, it’s difficult to lay -166. Crystal Palace beat Wolverhampton by 2 last month.
Liverpool beat the Wanderers by 4 last December 6. Laying the 1 ½ on the Reds is worth a shot.
Soccer Pick: Liverpool
Leicester City +165 vs Aston Villa +149 | English Premier League – Matchweek 14
- When: Sunday, Dec. 5 at 11:30 am ET
This projects as one of the most competitive matches of the weekend. Leiceser and Aston have split the last couple of head-to-head victories.
The reason to give Leicester the edge is because Aston Villa’s winning match happened in October last year. Leicester beat AV 2-1 this past Febraury.
Not only that, but Leicester has won 2 and drew with Southampton in their last 3 while Aston Villa dropped a match 1-2 versus Man City in their last.
This can go either way. We’re getting greedy and backing the road squad. LC gets the nods.
Soccer Pick: Leicester City
