Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – February 12th

Chelsea Vs West Bromwich Albion

  • When: Monday, February 12
  • Tournament: English Premier League
All is not well in London right now, as the defending Premier League Champions are sinking like a stone, leading some to question how long Antonio Conte will be in his job at Stamford Bridge. After losing 4-1 to Watford in their last game, Chelsea needs to bounce back, and a game against West Brom may be just what the doctor ordered.Chelsea has won each of their last 3 meetings against Albion, failing to give up a goal in the process. You certainly fancy Chelsea to have a comfortable time of it against the bottom of the table club.Score: Chelsea 3 – West Bromwich Albion 0

FC Basel vs. Manchester City – Tuesday

  • When: Tuesday, February 13th
  • Tournament: Champions League
When you look at the entirety of the Champions League draw, you have to feel as though City have the easiest passage to the next round. Manchester City has been in devastating form this season and is coming off a weekend performance where they hit Leicester for 5, with Sergio Aguero bagging 4 goals in that one.They are not going to go all out in the away leg, but you still fancy them to get the result in Switzerland that should make the second leg a bit of a formality.Score: FC Basel 0 – Manchester City 2

FC Porto vs. Liverpool – Wednesday

  • When: Wednesday, February 14th
  • Tournament: Champions League
You need to go back all the way to 2007 to find the last time that these two teams hooked up in Champions League play. It was group stage action that time around, with Liverpool winning comfortably at home and tying in the away game.A draw looks like the better Soccer Betting pick for the duel between Porto and Liverpool.You get the sense that the Reds would be more than happy with a similar result this time around, as I fancy them to get the job done at home. The Liverpool defense is shaky, but I think they can hold off an inferior Porto team in the opening leg, so let’s go with a Draw as our soccer betting pick for this one.Score: FC Porto 0 – Liverpool 0

Celtic vs. Zenit St. Petersburg – Thursday

  • When: Thursday, February 15th
  • Tournament: Europa League
The Europa League is also back in action this week, with a ton of games to choose from in that competition. It is going to be interesting to see how Scottish Champions Celtic react after getting totally outclassed in the Group Stage of the Champions League. They get a second shot at European glory in the Europa League, but they have what looks to be a very tough draw here.Zenit are a team that doesn’t travel particularly well, even in their domestic league, so Celtic have an opportunity to take a first-leg advantage on the road with a win at home.Score: Celtic 2 – Zenit St. Petersburg 1
