We have found some amazing value across the European soccer betting board this weekend with a combined set of odds coming in at +130 for our four soccer picks

Check out why we like Kai Havertz and Karim Benzema to cash their shot props this weekend. Elsewhere we are targeting Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala to score and AS Roma faces bitter rivals Lazio where we are liking Roger Ibanez to be booked at plus money. All of our player props can be bet on at any of these US betting sites.

Picks Summary

  • Kai Havertz (Chelsea FC) Over 1.5 Shots on Target (+225) at BetOnline
  • Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich) Anytime Goalscorer (+190) at Heritage Sports
  • Roger Ibanez (AS Roma) To Be Booked (+130) at BetOnline
  • Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) Over 2.5 Shots (-120) at BetOnline

Everton FC vs. Chelsea FC  

  • When: Saturday, March 18, 2023 – 01:30 PM EDT
  • Where: Stamford Bridge  

Kai Havertz (Chelsea FC) 

  • Total Goals:
  • Total Assists:
  •  Shots Per Game: 2.2 

Kai Havertz has been Chelsea’s top goalscorer this season and their main offensive threat in front of the net, averaging almost two shots per game and one on target we are loving his current EPL odds at +225 to have over 1.5 shots on target in this home game.  

Chelsea faces an Everton side who have allowed 16 shots against on the road this season which is the fourth worst in the EPL. Havertz has scored in his previous two Chelsea games. With multiple attacking players injured for Chelsea, we believe Havertz has a chance of cashing 2+ game shots on target at some really nice odds.

Bayern Munich vs. Bayer Leverkusen

  • When: Sunday, March 19, 2023 – 12:30 PM EDT
  • Where: BayArena  

Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich) 

  • Total Goals: 11 
  • Total Assists: 10 
  •  Shots Per Game: 2.10 

We are kind of shocked but more than happy to see Bayern Munich’s top goalscorer this season Jamal Musiala to score anytime at Bundesliga odds of +190, this is way too big in our opinion. 

Despite playing on the road Musiala has scored in 50% of his road games this season and Munich has scored almost an average of 4 goals per game across their previous four visits to the BayArena.  

Musiala has now gone three games without a goal so he should be eager to get back on the scoreboard ahead of this Bundesliga clash.

AS Roma vs. SS Lazio

  • When: Sunday, March 19, 2023 – 01:00 PM EDT
  • Where: Stadio Olimpico 

Roger Ibanez (AS Roma) 

  • Fouls Per Game: 1.3 
  • Yellow Cards:
  •  Red Cards:

The Rome derby takes place this weekend and we are targeting Roger Ibanez to be booked in this matchup at +130 Serie A odds. The previous five games between these two rivals have produced an average of 6.1 yellow cards per game and 0.20 Red Cards per game.  

Center defensive player Roger Ibanez has seen the most yellow cards this season for Roma and has been very card friendly in recent games having had a booking in 6 of his previous 8 games in all competitions. Facing their biggest rivals we are more than happy to get on Ibanez to be booked at these current odds.

Real Madrid vs. FC Barcelona 

  • When: Sunday, March 19, 2023 –04:00 PM EDT
  • Where: Camp Nou 

Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) 

  • Total Goals: 14 
  • Total Assists:
  • Shots Per Game: 4.8 

Considering the fact Karim Benzema averages almost five shots per game, we are happy to lay the -110 La Liga odds on the Frenchman to have 3+ shots in this Spanish El Clasico clash.  

Madrid might be on the road and facing the league leaders, but for us, this is even more of a reason to get on Benzema to see 3+ shots in this game. Benzema is not only Madrid’s top goalscorer this season but also their top shot-taker.  

Madrid trail Barcelona by 9 points, this is a must-win game if they wish to get themselves back into the title race and Benzema should be capable of getting at least three shots in this match.
