Best Soccer Picks This Weekend

Nantes vs Paris Saint-Germain - Ligue 1

My Team's Next MatchPSG

PSG to win (-390) / Neymar to score first (+275) Bovada

Paris St. Germain are flying high in France’s Ligue 1; the Parisians are nine points clear of second-placed Monaco. Sixteen victories, two draws and one defeat from 19 league games this season is an impressive record.

The champions elect travel to fifth-place Nantes this weekend and are hot favorites to return home with all three points. Paris are -390 to win at Nantes, according to Bovada, which does not represent massive value, although it is a fair price with all things considered.

You can boost your potential returns by making a parlay bet of a Paris victory and Neymar to open the scoring. The world’s most expensive soccer player is in red hot form having scored seven goals in his previous nine games and he could be the man to unlock Claudio Ranieri’s tight defensive unit. 

If you fancy betting on Neymar without the parlay, Bovada have him at +275 to score first and -140 to bang a goal in before the final whistle. I wouldn’t deter anyone from making either bet.

Wolfsburg vs Dortmund - Bundesliga

My Team's Next MatchBorussia Dortmund

Over 2.5 goals (-185) in BvB/Wolfsburg clash Bovada

Borussia Dortmund have all but given up on winning the German Bundesliga as they currently occupy third-place and are 16 points behind league leaders Bayern Munich s the race for a UEFA Champions League spot is their new task. Only four points separate 10th placed Hertha Berlin and second-placed Schalke 04 so picking up points is vitally important for Dortmund. 

Dortmund should beat Wolfsburg, although the home side have been inconsistent this season. Eight wins, four draws and five defeats show why Dortmund are not challenging for the title, but at least their record is better than Wolfsburg who are this season’s draw specialists with three wins, 10 draws and four defeats from 17 games.

Bovada price a Dortmund victory at -250, the draw at +395 and an away win at an unlikely +650. I actually do not mind a small wager on the draw, due to Wolfsburg’s current form, but it is the goals market that I am looking at.

Dortmund’s eight home games this season have resulted in an amazing 37 goals for 4.6 goals per game. Both teams have scored in Dortmund’s last nine home games while both teams have scored In 10 of Wolfsburg’s previous 13 games. The over 2.5 goals is available at -185 with over 3.5 goals priced at +140. Also look at both teams to score and the game ending in a draw at +450 and both teams to score and Borussia Dortmund to win at +175.

Chelsea vs Leicester - Premier League

My Team's Next MatchChelsea

Chelsea to tame the Foxes 2-0 (+650) Bovada

Chelsea would be challenging for the Premier League title in any other season as their 46 points from 22 games is a championship winning tally. This is not the case this campaign because Manchester City are in ridiculous form and have won 20 of their 22 games.

The Blues play host to former Premier League champions Leicester City this weekend knowing a victory could see them climb to second-place because Manchester United do not play until Monday night. Antonio Conte’s side have only conceded seven goals at home this season and have not leaked a goal in their previous two home matches. Chelsea have won four and drawn two of their last six matches, while Leicester City have lost their previous two away games and have a poor record on the road to Chelsea, losing all four of the last four encounters.

Both Chelsea versus Leicester games ended 3-0 to the Blues last season. You will get odds of +800 from Bovada on this correct score. I prefer 2-0 Chelsea at +650 if I am honest. Also look at the betting odds on a Chelsea clean sheet, currently at -110 and Chelsea to win and both teams not to score at +110.
