Top FA Cup and EPL Games to Bet and Watch this Week From April 16th to 17th

Liverpool +163 vs Manchester City +141 | FA Cup Semifinal

  • When: Sunday, April 17 at 10:30 am ET

Man City and Pool show the exact same form in their last 5. Both won 3 before drawing in their last couple. Last Saturday, these two bumped heads in an unbelievable soccer match.

The score finished 2-2, which is why Liverpool gets the edge in the rematch. There were moments where it looked as if City might take control, but Pool rallied twice.

This match happens at Wembley Stadium. So neither Liverpool nor Manchester City has the home pitch edge. Not only that, but Pool knows they can hang with Man City. Give Mane, Salah, and the rest the nod to take down De Bruyne and his crew. 

Soccer Pick: Liverpool 

Brighton & Hove Albion +500 at Tottenham Hotspur -185

  • When: Saturday, April 16

Tottenham is on fire, which explains why the Hotspur are such a big favorite in this match. The home squad has won 4 straight. 

In their last 3 matches, Tottenham has rolled, beating West Ham 3-1, Newcastle 5-1, and Aston 4-0. The Hotspur, no doubt, should win this. But Brighton beat Arsenal 2-1 in their last. Brighton is good enough to surprise. The odds warrant a small play on the road squad. 

Soccer Pick: Brighton & Hove

Norwich City +1 ½ +112 at Manchester United -1 ½ -142

  • When: Saturday, April 16

United has lost 3 with a draw and a win in their last 5. Norwich’s form doesn’t scream moneyline victory, but based on the Red Devils’ last 5, +112 and +1 ½ goals is a gift.

United hasn’t bested Norwich by more than a goal in two straight. The road team keeps this close at an overlay handicap payout. 

Soccer Pick: Norwich City  

Arsenal -108 at Southampton +285

  • When: Saturday, April 16

Neither team is in great form. Southampton has lost 3-of-5. The lone positive was a 1-1 draw versus Leeds United on April 2. 

Arsenal isn’t playing much better. The Gunners’ form leaves much to be desired. The road chalk in this has won 2-of-5 with 3 losses. 2-of-3 losses were teams Arsenal should have beaten, Brighton and Crystal Palace. Because neither team is in great form, the odds make the home squad the play.    

Soccer Pick: Southampton  

Crystal Palace +1 ½ -196 vs Chelsea -1 ½ +138 | FA Cup Semifinals

  • When: Sunday, April 17

After a couple of awful performances, Chelsea has bounced back with 2 stunning displays of soccer brilliance. On April 9, the Blues dusted Southampton 6-0.

Then on April 12, Chelsea beat Real Madrid 3-2 on the road. The victory over Real wasn’t enough to keep Chelsea from bowing out of the Champions League and the Blues are too far behind the Reds and Sky Blues to win the EPL, which means an FA Cup victory is the only thing Chelsea can hang their hat on this season. 

So expect the Blues to dominate. At the odds, Chelsea is for sure worth a look. The Blues win by 2 for sure and could win by 3 or more. 

Soccer Pick: Chelsea 

Leicester City +220 at Newcastle United +120 

  • When: Sunday, April 17

Leicester is playing well enough to garner a look. Newcastle is in decent form as well, the home team beat Wolverhampton 1-0 in their last.

But at +120, we must pass on Newcastle. LC beat Crystal in their last. Crystal has made it all the way to the FA Cup Semifinals. The road team has a much better shot of taking this than the +220 odds imply. 

Soccer Pick: Leicester City
