Saturday, August 3

Manchester United vs AC Milan

  • 2019 International Champions Cup Odds: TBA

United has gone 4-0 straight up in their last 4 matches. That includes going 2-0 in their last couple of International Champions Cup matches. Manchester beat Perth 2-0 in a friendly on July 13. They dominated Leeds United 4-0 in a friendly on July 17.

Man U. beat Internazionale 1-0 and Tottenham 2-1 in International Champions Cup play. The 2-1 win over Tottenham was particularly impressive because the Hotspur was at full strength.

AC Milan is 0-2 in International Champions Cup play. Both Bayern and Benfica beat Milan 1-0. United should take this rather easily.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester United

Sunday, August 4

Tottenham vs Inter Milan

  • 2019 International Champions Cup Odds: TBA

We can forgive Tottenham for their 1-2 loss to Manchester United in their last match. The Hotspur battled an English Premier League rival. Before the loss to Man U., they had beaten tough Italian Serie A squad Juventus 3-2.

Internazionale drew with Paris Saint-Germain 1-1 in a friendly in their last match. Before that, they had lost both their International Champions Cup matches: 0-1 to Man U. and 1-1 to Juventus on penalties.

Tottenham should have too much offense in this match. The Hotspur might be worth backing on the handicap because they should only be favored by 1 ½ goals.

Soccer Betting Pick: Tottenham handicap

Manchester City vs Liverpool

English Premier League rivalry matches always bring out the best in both squads. It doesn’t get more of a rivalry than Liverpool-Manchester City. Man City won the EPL last season by a single point over Liverpool.

Both teams should be fired up for this battle. Man City is 4-1 straight up in their last 5 while Liverpool is 1-1-3 SU in their last 5. It means Manchester City should win easily on Sunday, right? Not so fast. Because this is a rivalry game, Liverpool should come out with way more energy than they have in recent friendly matches. Pool is worth backing.

Soccer Betting Pick: Liverpool

Barcelona vs Arsenal

  • Trofeo Joan Gamper: TBA

The annual, friendly, Trofeo Joan Gamper soccer match takes place on August 4 between Barca and Arsenal. Although considered a friendly, Barcelona plays in front of their home fans at Camp Nou.

On paper, Barcelona should overpower Arsenal. Barca won its eighth La Liga crown in eleven years in late April. They’re heavily favored to make it 9 titles in 12 years this season. Arsenal will find it difficult to keep up with Man City, Man U., Tottenham, and Chelsea in the English Premier League this season.

Barcelona should get it done. The odds on Barca will be incredibly low. Take them on the handicap to beat Arsenal on Sunday.

Soccer Betting Pick: Barcelona handicap
