Benfica vs Sporting 

Even though we don’t usually cover the Portuguese league, this is a huge game for any soccer lover. Benfica and Sporting feature one of the biggest rivalries in Portugal with the two teams from Lisbon fighting this Sunday for the first place. Benfica is currently in the lead with two more points than Sporting. 

After a mistake from the sportsbooks with Benfica’s price too low on the opening odds, the market already adjusted with a drift on the favorite team, which makes it difficult to find any value on the current prices. Both teams lost their midweek game on the UCL but while Benfica qualified for the next stage, Sporting failed to secure a place in the Europa League. 

Both teams present a very offensive football which indicates a game with goals, especially at this stage of the season where there is still margin for error and the teams can take some extra risks.

The Over 2.00 is a very good option around -142.90 however, Both Teams to Score - Yes @-105 10bet is our choice for this game.

PSG vs Nice

Both teams were involved in European games during the week. PSG played two days earlier with a surprising 2-2 draw against Ludogorets that cost them the first place in the group to Arsenal. On the other side, Nice defeated Krasnodar at home but it wasn’t enough to reach the following stage on the Europa League.

The price on PSG is too low for this game, which gives us some value to play the opposite side. Nice should give a good fight and their +1.5 Asian Handicap @1.91 Pinnacle is a great bet to take this weekend.

Free Soccer pick : Nice AH +1.50 -110

Leicester vs Manchester City

Once again, Leicester and Manchester City return to action after the midweek action. Manchester City featured a disappointing performance against Celtic while Leicester returned from Portugal after a heavy 0-5 loss against Porto.

Ranieri presented a very different team in order to spare his main players for the game against Manchester City. However, Leicester is not in a good moment after another defeat last weekend against Sunderland.

On the Citizens side, Aguero and Fernandinho can’t help the team on this game. Both players received a red card on Manchester City’s defeat against Chelsea last week. However, Pep Guardiola still counts with other quality solutions for their places.

With the two teams looking for the win and since their offensive lines are much better than their defense, it’s unlikely to see any of them ending with a clean sheet. That said, Both Teams to Score - Yes @-142.90  is the best bet to take on this game.
