After a busy week with the UEFA competitions is now time to look at the Top European leagues that are going through a crucial period. You can find below the best betting lines to fill your bet slip during the weekend!

Premier League 
Last weekend we analyzed three games on this league and once again this is the most appealing league for us.


Sunderland vs. Leicester
This is almost a Déjà vu feeling due to the number of times that we picked Leicester since the start of the season and that has been a profitable strategy for us throughout this Premier League edition.

Early this season, we rated Leicester as an offensive team with weapons to score a large number of goals but the team’s approach in the previous matches has been completely different. Ranieri’s team is playing much more focused, with their last four victories ending all with the same result, 1-0.

Sunderland arrives to this match after four draws, three of them with goals, which puts them in a very difficult place at the moment.

They must recover a four points’ gap to Norwich, in order to leave the relegation zone but it won’t be easy if we look at their calendar until the end of the season. Besides this match against Leicester, they still have to face Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton and a visit to Norwich on the last 7 rounds.

This should be a match with goals with the Over being won due to the risks that Sunderland has to take, but we see with much more value to stick to the team we trust due to their potential, strength and levels of confidence, Leicester. A straight win is a good option too, but we’ll be more than happy with a 93% return on their win with half of the stack protected in case of draw.

Tottenham vs. Manchester United
Interesting clash in perspective and a very difficult one for Tottenham on their pursuit to Leicester. This is a game where the home team can’t fail and other result than a victory might ruined their title chances, especially if Leicester wins their match.

Van Gaal’s team is involved on a tough fight with their rivals from Manchester for a Champions League spot and they have to take advantage of a possible slip from Manchester City, who is focused on their UCL quarterfinals.

Due to the needs of both teams, this should be a very different contest from their last match where only one team scored and that will be our lean for this match.

We’ll split our wager on this game in two markets with half the stake in each, to protect us from the scenario where one team collapses under pressure, and that team can be Tottenham because Leicester plays earlier and if they win the pressure on the Spurs will be immense.

Soccer Pick: Both teams to score @+100 Coral & Over 2.25 @-108 Sbobet 


Just six rounds to go before the end of Bundesliga with crucial 18 points in dispute.


Hertha vs. Hannover
Hertha is currently on Bundesliga’s third place, which guarantees access to UCL, but they are just three points ahead of Borussia Monchengladbach while Hannover seems doomed with just 17 points and a 10 points gap from the safety zone, their mission seems impossible even if Tom Cruise shows up. We usually don’t call impossible to nothing but win 11 points when three of their six matches are against top 4 teams while their rivals can’t win any really seems impossible.

Hannover players are aware of how difficult their task is and their last results show it with three consecutive losses without scoring any goal.

Markets as Hertha Win to Nil @+130  Bet365 or Both Teams to Score – No @-143 Bet365 present some value but our choice for soccer picks will be simpler, by picking Hertha’s Asian Handicap -1.00 (voided in case of Hertha’s victory by just one goal and fully won with a victory by 2 or more goals).

Soccer Pick: Hertha AH -1.00 @-105 Bet365

Stuttgart vs. Bayern Munich
Stuttgart’s season is already solved, they are quite comfortable and far away from relegation zone but also too far from reaching the top places of the table.

Bayern Munich visits the Mercedes-Benz Arena this weekend in a middle of the UCL quarterfinals but the gap for Dortmund doesn’t allow them to be relax.

Munich only scored one goal per game in the previous three and we all know that those numbers are very low for this team. We already discussed one possible reason, with Boateng out due to injury the team is much weaker defensively and they have to be much more cautious on the attack.

We have to go back to 2008 to find a match where Bayern didn’t leave Stuttgart with a victory and we find very unlikely to see that sequence broken here. Guardiola’s team should win this by at least two goals and we’ll explore the price that the sportsbooks are paying on Bayern’s Asian Handicap.

Soccer Pick: Bayern Munich AH -1.00 @-119 188bet


Serie A
Roma vs. Bologna
Due to Napoli’s slip last weekend, Roma still believes in the possibilities of reaching the 2nd spot while they are also much more comfortable on their fight for a UCL place.

Bologna is going throughout a bad phase with their home defeat against Verona last weekend as a good example of that. They are currently in the 13th place and without much more to fight for because just a few more points should be enough to assure their presence on Serie A next edition.

Roma is a very strong team on the attack, we were with them last week to beat Lazio as you know and at the time, we also referred the Over 3.50, which ended to be won on the last minutes due to their forwards’ talent.

We can expect a clear win from the home team on this match and they should start building their lead on the first half, which makes us look with value to their half time price @-115 188bet or HT/FT @-103 soccer odds at Unibet.

This should be a comfortable victory by two goals or more, so we’ll split our wager into Roma HT/FT and their Asian Handicap -1.5 @+106
