Wednesday’s soccer card brings us a total of 13 games across the English Premier League, Serie A and La Liga, let’s see if we can find some value in the prop betting market.
Barcelona to win to nil -135 vs. Espanyol (4:00 PM EST)
The Barcelona Derby doesn’t have the same competitive fire that other rivalries may have across Europe, especially when you look at the history of the matchup and realize how it really hasn’t been all that close for some time. Barcelona hasn’t lost to Espanyol at home since 2009, and over that timeframe, Barcelona has outscored Espanyol 33-2 at the Camp Nou. Barcelona woke up against Villarreal and I think we see more of the same fire here as Barca wins this one in convincing fashion as well.
Fiorentina/Cagliari Correct Score 1-1 +575 (1:30 PM EST)
I’m having a hard time separating Fiorentina and Cagliari and just think the draw is the likeliest of outcomes and between two sides that don’t necessarily light up the scoreboard, 1-1 seems to make the most sense to me at almost 6/1.
Napoli to win and over 1.5 goals -110 (1:30 PM EST)
Almost feels like taking candy from a baby with this one, just a matter of Napoli getting over the hump but it shouldn’t be too hard against a Genoa team that doesn’t provide much resistance. Napoli is unbeaten against Genoa since 2012 and I could easily see this being a 2-0 win for Napoli if not more, so I’ll take Napoli with the over 1.5 to get the price on the double blue down.
Roma/Parma Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals +125 (3:45 PM EST)
Both teams come into this game on respective three game losing streaks, and maybe it’s a bit more surprising to hear that coming from Roma. Parma’s held their own since coming up from Serie B last season, but ultimately I’m still having a hard time grabbing a winner here. I do think we see both sides get on the board and I think a 2-1 or even 3-1 outcome is a likely result here.
Sassuolo/Bologna Correct Score 2-2 +950 & 3-3 +3000 (3:45 PM EST)
This is one of my favorite value plays on the board as well as a prop bet because I had this game as a draw from just looking at the list of games and it doesn’t hurt that Sassuolo has been scoring for fun but also giving goals up as quickly as they’re putting them on the board. I see a high-scoring draw here at 2-2 if not 3-3 and one of those cashing in could make up for at laast a week’s worth of betting if not more.
Manchester City win to Nil vs. Newcastle -140 (3:15 PM EST)
I think that City will want to bounce back from the horrendous outing against Southampton and take it to Newcastle. I could see this being a 3-0 win for City, so I’ll take Man City to win to nil for that reason to get the price down.
