We have a solid yet smaller soccer schedule on Tuesday, let’s put a parlay together to kick things into gear heading towards the weekend!
Bet #1: Valladolid/Valencia Under 2.5 Goals -160 (La Liga)
Valencia’s the more name recognizable team, but they haven’t been playing like it as of late and Valladolid has just been the draw machine this year. Either way you slice it, these two have also played a ton of low scoring games since the restart, with 11 of the two teams’ 14 combined games seeing two goals or less at full time. I could easily see this being 1-0, 1-1 or 0-0, so give me the under here.
Bet #2: Lazio -1.5 -120 vs. Lecce (Serie A)
Lazio stumbled against AC Milan, but I fully expect Lazio to get back on track here as another stumble would put a huge dent in their title chase hopes with the number of games remaining dwindling down. Lecce’s allowed four goals or more in all but one game since Serie A resumed play, and that’s not going to cut it against one of Serie A’s best. I think Lazio’s good for 3 or 4 on their own here, so I’ll side with them on the -1.5 handicap.
Bet #3: Atletico Madrid ML +110 vs. Celta Vigo (La Liga)
Atletico Madrid boasts the second tightest defense in the Spanish top flight, allowing just 25 goals this season, and while Celta Vigo has had a pretty good run of form on the surface since the restart of La Liga, a 2-2 draw against Barcelona was the only noteworthy game of the bunch in my opinion, and that still leaves just two wins in seven games since the restart. I think Atletico puts the clamps down on Celta here, and we see the defensive performance that’s been Atletico’s trademark on the way to a likely top-4 finish this season.
Parlay all of those together
Valladolid/Valencia Under 2.5
Atletico Madrid ML
Should pay about +525
