There’s seven games across the European Soccer slate on Tuesday, let’s see if we can pick out a couple of value plays/underdogs to boost our bankroll for the rest of the week.
Two sides that are struggling to get in the win column right now, as Valencia’s on a four game winless run but have 11 draws in the league and while Valencia’s only lost once in 17 home games, 7 of those games have finished as a draw. Valladolid leads La Liga with 15 draws this season, and have drawn 4 of 7 games since the restart. I envision this being a 1-1 draw, if not scoreless tie, so I’ll put side action on the correct scores of 0-0 and 1-1 for +700 and +525 respectively.
Atletico Madrid vs. Celta Vigo:
Atletico Madrid win to nil +210 / Atletico win & Under 2.5 goals +275
Atletico boasts La Liga’s second stingiest defense, allowing just 25 goals this season, and a lot of it has to do with the goaltending of Jan Oblak who has 15 clean sheets to his name this season. Vigo has had a decent run of form, but outside of the draw with Barcelona, it hasn’t been much tough sledding for Vigo. I expect Atletico to put the clamp down and win this one 1-0 or 2-0, so the Atletico win via shutout and Atletico win with the under 2.5 goals has some serious appeal to it at +210 and +275 respectively.
AC Milan vs. Juventus:
Juventus to win & Under 3.5 Goals +190
There’s value alone with Juventus ML at +110, but I think we can add on with the goals market as well. Juventus has owned the recent history of this rivalry, winning each of the last six-head-to-head league meetings between the two sides. The last three and five of the six meetings have seen Juventus win and have seen 3 or fewer goals, so I feel confident with a 2-0 score line or even 2-1 for a Juventus win to keep distance from Lazio in the Serie A title chase.
