Written by on July 23, 2018

The World Cup may now be in the rearview mirror, but that also means that the European domestic leagues are just a few weeks away from getting started again. Many of the major teams are over in the United States taking part in the International Champions Cup, which is what we will mostly be focusing on here for our top soccer betting picks of the week.We also have some great MLS action on tap, as well as some Champions League qualifiers, so lots of pro-soccer to bet on this week. Let’s take a look at some of the games we can look forward to over the next few days.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – July 23rd Edition

Celtic vs Rosenborg

  • When: Wednesday
  • Where: Celtic Park
  • Competition: UEFA Champions League
  • Soccer Betting Odds: Celtic -276 / Rosenborg +913 / Empate +366
The Champions league is once again underway, with a number of teams looking to win their way into the highly lucrative group stage of the tournament. Celtic, the champions of Scotland, eased past Alashket by a 6-0 aggregate score in the last round but will have a much tougher test here. Rosenborg is already in the middle of the season in Norway, where they are currently second to Brann, 2 points off the pace.They had a tougher passage in the last round, coming from 1-0 down in the opening game to take out Valur 3-2 on aggregate. I think Celtic come away with the win at home.Score Prediction: Celtic 2 – Rosenborg 0

Manchester City vs Liverpool – Wednesday

  • When: Wednesday
  • Where: MetLife Stadium
  • Competition: ICC 2018
  • Soccer Betting Odds: Manchester City +262 / Liverpool -107 / Draw +293
The 2018 International Champions Cup continues on Wednesday night in Pennsylvania with a great looking clash between a pair of English giants. Manchester City is coming off what was arguably the best ever season in Premier League history but will probably be missing a number of players who went deep in the World Cup with their respective countries.Liverpool has already played in this competition, going down 3-1 to Borussia Dortmund on Sunday afternoon. These games are more about preparation than anything, so expect an open game with a lot of goals.Score Prediction: Manchester City 2 – Liverpool 2

Atletico Madrid vs Arsenal – Thursday

  • When: Thursday
  • Where: Singapur National Stadium
  • Competition: ICC 2018
  • Soccer Betting Odds: Atletico Madrid +204 / Arsenal +124 / Draw +268
While the majority of games in the International Champions Cup will be played in the US, this one will see these two sides go head to head in Singapore. This will be our first look at Arsenal under their new manager Unai Emery. It is going to be interesting to see what sort of approach he takes after taking over from Arsene Wenger, although we are probably not going to get too many answers in this game.Arsenal shouldn't be one of your Soccer Betting picks of the week.Atletico Madrid will be without Antoine Griezmann, as he will still be on vacation after winning the World Cup with France. Tough game to handicap, but I think we are looking at a low-scoring affair here.Score Prediction: Atletico Madrid 1 – Arsenal 0

LAFC vs LA Galaxy – Thursday

  • When: Thursday
  • Where: Banc of California Stadium
  • Competition: MLS
  • Soccer Betting Odds: LAFC -118 / LA Galaxy +277 / Draw +318
This may be the first season in the MLS for LAFC, but they are already building a solid rivalry with their cross-city rivals. Both teams are currently sitting in a playoff spot in the West, but LAFC is coming off an absolute pounding at the hands of Minnesota on Sunday night.The Galaxy is starting to round into form, thanks in large part to the scoring prowess of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been exactly as billed since arriving in the City of Angels. These two tend to deliver goals when they go head to head, so play the OVER.Score Prediction: LAFC 3 – LA Galaxy 3
