William Hill's Lee Phelps has picked out a tasty odds treble from three of Europe's top divisions. This week he's looked at the betting in the Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga for his free picks.

This Saturday we’re travelling to London, to Bilbao and to Hamburg in a betting sense to single out three soccer picks that will hopefully land us a tasty treble.

 

QPR vs. Tottenham
The solitary Premier League game this weekend is a London derby with plenty at stake for both sides as Spurs chase Champions League football and Rangers try to preserve their Premier League status.

Tottenham are plainly the better side given the league positions, but that doesn’t mean the home are without a chance here as they showed against Arsenal in midweek. In fact picking Spurs’ results is tricky lately given their backlog of fixtures which is affecting their fitness and energy levels. Mauricio Pochettino has only witness one clean sheet for his team in their last 11 league away games, but he has also seen Harry Kane score eight in eight on the road.

I’m staying clear of the outrights here and looking at both teams to score, but that’s not my bet. I’m going for Charlie Austin to score the 300th goal Tottenham will have conceded in London derbies.

Austin has 15 goals from 24 games, including two in two, so he has bagged over half of Rangers’ 28 goals in the league.

Soccer pick: Charlie Austin to score 3.3 (23/10)

Athletic Bilbao vs. Real Madrid
Bilbao are having a decent season, are 10th La Liga, but have less than half of Real Madrid’s points. After Ronaldo and Co’s 1-1 draw at home you can imagine they’ll be hell bent on the full three points here, but I can’t bet on them at 1.5 (1/2) on La Liga odds because of the recent patchy form.

The head-to-heads would tend to suggest a win to nil for Real, but they had a 1-1 draw on their first trip to the New San Mames last season. I like how many goals Athletic Club have been scoring at home, with goals in each of their last five home games including one against Atletico Madrid and two against Barca, both resulted in losses.

Madrid has scored nine more away goals than any other team in the competition, so we can pretty much guarantee goals from them. They put five past Bilbao in the return game.

Soccer pick: Real Madrid win and both teams to score: 3.1 (21/10)

Hamburg vs. Borussia Dortmund
The rejuvenated Dortmund have now picked up 13 points in their six games since the winter break, which is only two fewer than the entire first half of the season and it’s a similar story with their goals. Their 13 goals is one more than their previous 16 matches.

They are looking for their 700th Bundesliga win at Hamburg and won’t have to worry too much about the goal threat, so keep this in mind when looking over the Bundesliga odds. Hamburg have only managed 16 goals, which is the lowest goals tally by five goals. Cologne are the next lowest on 21.

I’m taking Dortmund to win by two clear goals on the minus one handicap. That bet has landed in three of the last four wins and the fourth failed because of a stoppage time consolation from Stuttgart.

Soccer pick: Dortmund -1 2.55 (17/11)
