Soccer Betting Preview and Odds for the 2022-23 Europa League Group Stage – Matchday 1 Games

PSV Eindhoven -1.5 +100 vs Bodoe/Glimt +1.5 -127   

  • When: Thursday, September 8 at 12:45 pm ET

Bodoe/Glimt is up against it big time on Thursday. Not only must Bodoe travel, but the underdog in this takes on one of the best teams in the Dutch Eredivisie. 

Also, the road squad heads into this playing their worst match of the early soccer season. Rival Molde dusted Bodoe/Glimt 4-1. Eindhoven isn’t in spectacular form. But PSV should handle this handicap. 

Europa League Pick: PSV Eindhoven -1.5  

Lazio +104 vs Feyenoord Rotterdam +248

  • When: Thursday, September 8 at 12:45 pm ET

On paper, Feyenoord has a shot. The Dutch Eredivisie squad is on a roll. Rotterdam has won 4-of-5. The lone hiccup was a 0-0 draw versus Heerenveen on August 13.

Lazio shows a draw and a loss in their last couple. The loss happened versus one of the top teams in Serie A and a Champions League participant, rival Napoli. Rome should pick up their feet at home.  

Europa League Pick: Lazio +104 

Manchester United -158 vs Real Sociedad +410

  • When: Thursday, September 8 at 3:00 pm ET

Sociedad shows 3 wins, a loss, and a draw in their last 5. The draw happened in Sociedad’s last match on September 3 versus Champions League contender Real Madrid.

The road team has a big chance to win this. But Ten Hag’s squad is on fire. Since benching Ronaldo, the Red Devils have excelled. Man U has won 4 straight. Things are going so well that United handed Arsenal their first loss of the season on September 4. 

Europa League Pick: Manchester United

Nantes +135 vs Olympiakos +204

  • When: Thursday, September 8 at 3:00 pm ET

Nantes has just a single win in their last 5. The victory came against one of the worst teams in French Ligue 1, Toulouse. 

By contrast, the road team in this has won 4-of-5 with a draw. The draw was in a meaningless Europa qualifier versus an overmatched club. Nantes is vulnerable to the upset.  

Europa League Pick: Olympiakos  

Red Star Belgrade +224 vs AS Monaco +115

  • When: Thursday, September 8 at 3:00 pm ET

Red Star has won 3 with a loss and a draw in their last 5. Before giving the home team a big chance to win this, notice the draw and loss happened in Belgrade’s last couple of matches. 

AS Monaco wasn’t playing well until their last. Monaco had lost 2 and drawn twice before beating Nice 1-0 on September 4. 1 of Monaco’s draws was in a 1-1 match versus Paris Saint-Germain. The road team grabs the win. 

Europa League Pick: AS Monaco  

SC Freiburg -248 vs FK Qarabag +640 

  • When: Thursday, September 8 at 3:00 pm ET

Qarabag should have no chance versus Bundesliga squad SC Freiburg. The home team’s lone loss in their last 5 happened versus rival Dortmund. 

The road underdog fell to Viktoria Plzen in their last. Qarabag is a decent soccer club, but Freiburg will overwhelm the dog. The odds make the home team an overlay. 

Europa League Pick: SC Freiburg
