Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – March 12th Edition

Written by on March 12, 2018

The soccer betting action never seems to end, and this week is no exception. We get the new week rolling with a big match in the EPL that could take Manchester City one step closer to the title. That is followed by second leg action in both the Champions League and Europa League. We have picked out what we believe to be the best games of the week, and we will have the best soccer odds analysis and predictions for all of those games. Let’s get started with the EPL on Monday.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – March 12th Edition

Stoke City vs. Manchester City – Monday

  • When: Monday, March 12th
  • Where: Bet365 Stadium
  • Competition: English Premier League
We are now at the point where we are just waiting for Manchester City to clinch the title, although we are going to need to wait a little longer for that to happen. Ironically enough, it may come in a couple of weeks when they face rivals Manchester United. This Monday should see them take a step closer to the crown with a win over Stoke.Manchester City has gone unbeaten in their last 4 meetings with Stoke, which includes a 7-2 win earlier this season. I don’t think we will see as many goals this time around, but the outcome should be the same.Score Prediction: Stoke City 1 – Manchester City 4

Manchester United vs. Sevilla – Tuesday

  • When: Tuesday, March 13th
  • Where: Old Trafford
  • Competition: UEFA Champions League
The second leg of the Round of 16 Champions League tie is one that hangs in the balance after the teams tied 0-0 in the first leg in Spain. United should be favorites to move on at Old Trafford, but Sevilla showed in the first leg that they cannot be ruled out, forcing David DeGea into a few spectacular saves.United are in a rich vein of form right now, though, beating Chelsea and Liverpool over the last 10 days, as well as eking out a come from behind 3-2 win over Crystal Palace. This one may be a little nervy early on, but I like United to eventually settle down and pull this one out.Score Prediction: Manchester United 2 – Sevilla 0

Barcelona vs. Chelsea – Wednesday

  • When: Wednesday, March 14th
  • Where: Camp Nou
  • Competition: UEFA Champions League
Chelsea is probably a little aggrieved that they are not going on the road for the second leg with a better aggregate result. They had countless chances to score in the first leg, but only managed a single from Willian, which was later canceled out by a Lionel Messi strike.FC Barcelona is the Soccer Betting favorite against Chelsea.That away goal could prove to be vital, as all Barcelona now need to move on to the quarter-finals is a 1-0 win. They are close to impossible to beat in their own building, so the task ahead of Chelsea could probably be described as monumental. While the Blue will put up a good fight, Barcelona should move on, be sure to include them in your Soccer Betting list.Score Prediction: Barcelona 2 – Chelsea 1

Red Bull Salzburg vs. Borussia Dortmund – Thursday

  • When: Thursday, March 15th
  • Where: Red Bull Arena
  • Competition: UEFA Europa League
Perhaps one of the biggest surprises in the first leg of the Round of 16 in the Europa League was Red Bull Salzburg going on the road and getting a 2-1 win in Dortmund. The pressure is now very much on Borussia Dortmund, as they are going to need to go out and chase this game from the start.This has the potential to be one of the best games on the soccer calendar this week, as it’s a game that promises goals and excitement. I think Borussia Dortmund can turn this one around and move on, which is why they should be your Soccer Betting pick.Score Prediction: Red Bull Salzburg 2 – Borussia Dortmund 3
