We have a decent size soccer card across Europe on Thursday, let’s try to put together a winning parlay to get to the massive weekend that we have lined up!
Bet #1: Athletic Bilbao/Sevilla Draw +200 (4:00 PM EST, La Liga)
Bilbao has an amazing record against Sevilla, winning 9 straight against Sevilla at home head-to-head. However, Bilbao’s leading goal-scorer, Raul Garcia, will miss this game and I don’t think his value to the team can be understated. I think Bilbao plays this one close to the vest and wouldn’t be surprised with a scoreless draw or 1-1 at best. Either way I see this one ending all square at full time.
Bet #2: Mallorca/Levante First Half Draw +125 (1:30 PM EST, La Liga)
Another game I could see scoreless, but feel more comfortable taking the first half draw as I think both sides come out a bit cautious here. Mallorca need the goals and points for the standings to try to climb out of relegation, and it could come against a Levante team that’s pretty comfortable where they are. Still see this one having more second half action than the first so I’ll side with the first half draw.
Bet #3: Manchester United -1.5 vs. Aston Villa (3:15 PM EST, English Premier League)
I give Villa full marks for battling Liverpool, but even their best efforts weren’t good enough and you have to think that kind of thing has to be demoralizing for Aston Villa in what’s the biggest fight of their season. The reverse fixture here was a draw, but United has become a much stronger team since that first matchup and I expect it to show here so I’ll take United -1.5.
Parlay those 3 up
Athletic Bilbao/Sevilla Draw +200
Mallorca/Levante First Half Draw +125
Manchester United -1.5 -115
Should pay just under +1200!
Good Luck Everyone!
