Sunday's Big Three bets revolve around goals for William Hill's lee Phelps. He has visited Germany, Spain and England for his free picks and has some value odds for you too.

Hamburg vs. Borussia M'gladbach
Bundesliga Odds Board
It can’t have been nice being a Hamburg player in training this week, having been demolished 8-0 by Bayern Munich. They must be desperate to get out on the pitch again to put things right.

They have a tough test too, with third place Borussia M'gladbach coming to town.

Before that hammering Hamburg had conceded 22 goals in the Bundesliga, which equates to the third best defence in the division. They have conceded 11 in 10 home games and I can see them being ultra-disciplined and intent on keeping a clean sheet.

Add to that Die Fohlen’s away record of just one win and four goals in their last six, with only eight scored all season and the under 2.5 is my soccer pick here.

Free Soccer Pick: Under 2.5 goals 1.75 (3/4)

Real Sociedad vs. Sevilla
La Liga Odds Board
A few weeks ago when previewing Real Madrid against Sociedad I unearthed a stat about David Moyes’ team not having conceded a first half goal under his management. Now, that changed in the Madrid game, when three were scored in the opening 45 minutes.

Since then they have seen four more first half goals in their two games, while their opponents, Sevilla, have seen more than half of the goals in their games come in the first half since the turn of the year too (13 of their 23 goals). I'm banking on that trend continuing in this La Liga game too.

Free Soccer Pick: First half highest scoring: 3.25 (9/4)

Tottenham Hotspur vs. West Ham United
Premier League Soccer Odds
The European Thursday nights have been successful so far this season for Tottenham, but they have struggled to cope with their Premier League commitment by and large. They have lost four games at White Hart Lane all season in the league and all four followed a Europa League match. They hadn’t had to travel miles before those matches either.

Sam Allardyce blamed tiredness and injuries for his team’s lacklustre FA Cup display at the Hawthorns, when West Brom ran out comfortable winners. It’s a worry given there are still 13 games left in the Premier League. All that promise could go up in smoke, if they don’t rediscover that form that had everyone raving.

I sense two teams who will be suffering some aches and pains here, with both flagging towards the end of the match, hence why I’m looking at a draw 3.9 (29/10) and the first half to be highest scoring. Both will come out of the traps quickly, but will tire as the match progresses. Tottenham have scored 11 goals in their return games from Europe, with only three of those netted after half time.

Free Soccer Pick: Highest scoring Tottenham half: First 3.25 (9/4)
