A 4-4 Saturday still ended up positive for ya boi. Big shoutout to Juventus for drawing with Atalanta, and to the Crew for bringing it home for me at the end. Sunday is the Lord’s Day, and he’s blessed us with a beautiful slate of games all over the globe. Games are starting at 7 AM, and the last game-start time is at 10:30… That’s 3 (or more) meals on the couch with my bum, and eyes zoned in on soccer. Praying this Sunday is a strong one, let’s kick it mates.
The North London Derby between Spurs and Arsenal is a must-watch game, maybe the biggest of the day. This could be an entertaining 2-2 draw, or it could end up being a 0-0 slop-fest with both teams playing with 10-men. Wherever this roller-coaster is taking us, I’m locked in. Gimme the draw at +240.
Wolves suffered a devastating loss on a last-minute header against Sheffield last time out, so they’ll be hungry for points to get back into the race for European Cup soccer. Everton are a gong-show, fade on sight for the People’s Club (awesome nickname for a terrible team). Wolves ML +110.
The top team parlays have been working out so far. Worked with Barca & Atlético yesterday, so I’m thinking it’ll work for Sevilla & Valencia today. Taking a Sevilla & Valencia ML parlay at +230.
Notice how I said the North London Derby wasn’t necessarily the top game of the day, well that’s cause we got AC Milan v. Napoli. Two heavy hitters in Italian soccer, like Tony and Christopher. AC Milan is hot right now, but I’m draw crazy on this Sunday, I need Jesus. I’m taking the ‘ol fashioned Italian draw supreme at +240, also gonna throw down a box of ziti on the over of 2.5 at -125.
Udinese are a sneaky good team, and are going against bum central in Sampdoria. Sampdoria aren’t terrible, but they are like watching paint dry, while watching grass grow, and while watching soccer if you’re still anti-footy. Udinese is also known as Le Zebrette, The Little Zebras… what a name! Little Zebras ML +135 all day.
I hate to be this guy, but for the first time in the history of all my soccer boards, going back to my Champions League picks back in September/October, I’m taking an under. I know it’s not the same kind of fun as a Barney draw, but the under (2.5) in the 9AM match between Toronto and DC is a mortal lock at +120.
Avoiding the KC/Minnesota game, even though I think it’s the best MLS game of the day. May take the under in the Colorado/RSL game depending how the earlier picks go.
Arsenal/Spurs Draw +240
Wolves ML +110
Sevilla & Valencia ML parlay +230
Napoli/Milan Draw +240
Napoli/AC Milan Over 2.5 -125
Udinese ML +135
Toronto/DC Under 2.5 +120
(Maybe) Colorado/RSL Under 2.5 -110
