Soccer – European Leagues Top Games
- When: Friday, Nov. 26 – Sunday, Nov. 28
Bundesliga – Matchday 13 | Mainz +130 vs Vfb Stuttgart +195
- When: Friday, Nov. 26 at 2:30 pm ET
Stuttgart often plays competitive soccer. Right now, though, the home team in this is struggling. Stuttgart has lost 4 straight. The last positive thing to happen to the home side was on Oct. 24 when Stuttgart drew 1-1 with FC Union Berlin.
While Stuttgart has struggled, Mainz has played well. The road team shows 2 draws and 3 wins in their last 5. Mainz also offers attractive odds.
Soccer Pick: Mainz
Bundesliga – Matchday 13 | Arminia Bielefeld +2 ½ (+119) vs Bayern Munich -2 ½ (-158)
- When: Saturday, Nov. 27 at 12:30 pm ET
In the last head-to-head, Arminia Bielefeld played well enough for a 3-3 draw. Most likely Bielefeld will be looking for another draw.
It’s unlikely they get it. Bayern is in good enough form to win this in regulation. But although Bayern will win, it’s difficult seeing the home side winning by more than a goal. Bayern hasn’t beaten an opponent by more than 2 goals in their last 3.
In fact, Augsburg upset Bayern 2-1 on Nov. 19. Bilefeld won’t pull an Augusburg. They’re worth backing at +2 ½ and +119, though.
Soccer Pick: Arminia Bielefeld
Serie A – Matchday 14 | Inter Milano -1 ½ (+106) vs Venezia +1 ½ (-140)
- When: Saturday, Nov. 27 at 2:45 pm ET
Venezia has a real shot of keeping this close. The home dog heads into this after a couple of wins, including an impressive 3-2 victory over As Roma on Nov. 7.
But although Venezia should play well, Inter is on fire. The defending Serie A champs have won 4-of-5 with a draw. The tie happened against AC Milan.
Milano should struggle to win this by more than a goal. But the odds on Venezia make them an underlay. So we’ll go with Inter.
Soccer Pick: Inter Milano
Serie A – Matchday 14 | Sassuolo +380 vs AC Milan -172
- When: Sunday, Nov. 28 at 9:00 am ET
Between the two, AC Milan is in better form. Sassuolo shows 2 losses and a draw in their last 3. AC shows 2 draws and a loss in their last 3.
Sassuolo won the last head-to-head. But AC Milan is a different team now then in the last match. The home team should win.
Soccer Pick: AC Milan
La Liga Primera Division – Matchday 15 | Real Sociedad +120 vs Espanyol +220
- When: Sunday, Nov. 28 at 10:15 am ET
So far so good for Sociedad. The road team in this has 29 points heading into the weekend, which means Sociedad is a single point behind Primera Divison leader Real Madrid.
Espanyol has lost 2-of-3. Sociedad has beaten Espanyol in the last 5 head-to-head matches. At the odds, Real Sociedad is a good play to make it 6 straight.
Soccer Pick: Real Sociedad
La Liga Primera Division – Matchday 15 | Atletico Madrid -1 ½ (+143) vs Cadiz +1 ½ (-192)
- When: Sunday, Nov. 28 at 12:30 pm ET
On Aug. 4, these two drew 1-1. The match was a club friendly, which means Atletico probably didn’t go all out to beat Cadiz.
If we look back to the head-to-head matches before then, it’s obvious AM is the better team. Atletico has struggled to beat teams by more than a goal. But it’s impossible to lay -192 on Cadiz. We’ll lay the goal and a half for a shot at the better than fair payout.
Soccer Pick: Atletico Madrid
English Premier League – Matchweek 13 | Newcastle United +1 ½ (-196) vs Arsenal -1 ½ (+118)
- When: Saturday, Nov. 27 at 7:30 am ET
Heading into the weekend, Newcastle is the worst team in the Premier. The road team in this has acquired 6 points this season.
Arsenal is in fifth place with 20 points. The Gunners have beaten Newcastle by at least 2 goals in the last 4 head-to-head matches, making Arseanl on the handicap the pick.
Soccer Pick: Arsenal
English Premier League – Matchweek 13 | Southampton +1 ½ (+106) vs Liverpool -1 ½ (-140)
- When: Saturday, Nov. 27 at 10:00 am ET
Great teams bounce back from tough losses. On Nov. 7, West Ham upset Pool 3-2. In their next match on Nov. 20, the Reds blasted Arsenal 4-0.
Southampton is in okay form. The road squad has won 2-of-5.
But Southampton lost their last match to Norwich City. Liverpool won’t suffer a let down. Pool should cover the handicap.
Soccer Pick: Liverpool
