Soccer Picks Parlay: One for the Money, Two For The Show

Soccer Picks Parlay: One for the Money, Two For The Show

We are all over the spectrum this weekend as we have been given a mish-mash of cup semis, finals and league games including the game of the season in Italy.

  • Juventus vs. Napoli - Serie A Title Decider in Turin
  • Manchester City vs. Swansea - Chasing The Record Books
  • Manchester United vs. Tottenham - "Que Sera, Sera"

Juventus vs Napoli - Serie A

My Team's Next MatchJuventus

With 5 games left in the Serie A season, and Juventus holding a 4 point lead, Napoli's path is clear. Win in Turin this Sunday April 22nd at 2:45pm or watch the Old Lady hoist a 7th consecutive Scudetto. Juventus also know that a win at home where they have gone 14-1-1 this season will all about seal the deal and they will not want to keep Napoli hanging around.

To their credit, however, Napoli has not lost a Serie A game away from Naples all season, but can they thwart the juggernaut that is Juventus?

Juve rested some key starters in their midweek draw cleary with their eyes on Sunday. History has told that when it comes to reliable investments, Juventus at home is as solid as a rock. If it is not broke, don't fix it. We have done very well backing the Old Lady over the course of the past few seasons and with the price we are getting this weekend we should happily pounce.

The fact that Juventus doesn't need to win takes a tiny bit of pressure off their shoulders but ultimately they will be treating this game like a must win. Napoli have put up a very good challenge this season, but this weekend the clock will strike midnight on Cinderella and her chariot will change back into a pumpkin.

Juventus (+105) William Hill

Man City vs Swansea - FA Cup Semifinals

My Team's Next MatchManchester City

Now that the title race has been officially decided, Manchester City have a couple more pieces of business to handle. Sitting on 28 wins with 5 games left, they can be the all time winningest Premier League Champions with 3 more victories, breaking the mark that Chelsea just set last season.

Sitting on 93 goals, if they can score 11 in their remaining games, they will be the highest scoring side in Premier League history, eclipsing the 103 Chelsea scored a decade ago under Carlo Ancelotti.

Finally, if you are Kevin De Bruyne and looked to have had the PFA Player of the year award locked up until Mo Salah started scoring goals non stop, you'll really want to shine over these next few weeks and remind everyone why you are the best player in England.

So when Swansea, who cannot fall into a relegation spot this weekend, visit the Etihad this weekend City will look to put on a show. Swansea will be taking the ball out of their net a fair bit.

City -2.5 (Even) and Over 3.5 goals (+105) William Hill

Man United vs Tottenham - FA Cup Semifinals

My Team's Next MatchManchester United

Both teams will feel like this is the final on Saturday at Wembley, as the winner will be the clear favorite heading into the final regardless of who the opponent is.

In meetings this season between the clubs, both games have gone Under and the home side has won. I wouldn't blame anyone for taking Spurs as having played at Wembley all season will be a clear advantage, but Jose Mourinho has a 10-1-3 record lifetime versus Mauricio Pochettino.

Man United are fully fit and The Special One always has a trick or two up his sleeve in big cup games to make life hard on the opposition. I could wage a guess that a big part of his efforts this weekend will be to lock down Christian Eriksen who has been one of the shining lights in England this season.

Similarly, if the Tottenham holding midfielders can crowd Paul Pogba, and Alexis Sanchez off the ball it will be hard for United to create a ton of chances. Ultimately the under feels most logical given how equal these teams are in terms of talent and how well these managers know one another.
