We are excited about some of our prospective soccer picks cashing this weekend across European Soccer as we have taken three plus-money player props bets in the German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A, and English Premier League.  

We are only laying with our Spanish La Liga selection in one of the best matchups across the league this weekend between Real Betis and Villarreal.  

Borussia Monchengladbach vs. RB Leipzig 

Saturday, March 11, 2023 – 09:30 AM EST at Red Bull Arena 

Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) 

  • Total Goals:
  • Total Assists:
  •  Shots Per Game: 2.7 

Without Christopher Nkunku available for RB Leipzig right now we are looking towards Timo Werner to step up to the plate in place of the current top goalscorer. Nkunku has scored 12 times in the Bundesliga for Leipzig this season and Werner backs him up in second having had 6 goals in total.  

Werner was only featured for six minutes in Leipzig’s previous game so we expect him to start in this home tie, we also believe Leipzig will win this game 2-1. Given the fact we believe they can score twice, we are happy to place this anytime goalscorer bet for Werner to be one of the goalscorers at plus-money Bundesliga odds. Most importantly Werner has scored 5 of his 6 goals this season on home soil.

Chelsea FC vs. Leicester City FC 

Saturday, March 11, 2023 – 10:00 AM EST at King Power Stadium 

James Maddison (Leicester City FC) 

  • Total Goals:
  • Total Assists:
  • Shots Per Game: 3.20 

James Maddison has been one of Leicester City’s top players for a number of years and arguably their best player at the time of writing as he leads the goals and assists stats for the entire team in the Premier League this season.  

On home soil, we are more than happy to bet the winger to have over 0.5 shots on target at +120 EPL odds with BetOnline. Maddison averages one shot on target per game this season for Leister City and is their designated free-kick taker.  

These odds are way too high for Maddison to see one or more shots on target, even if the opposition is Chelsea.  

Soccer Pick: James Maddison Over 0.5 Shots on Target (+120) at BetOnline

US Sassuolo vs. AS Roma 

Sunday, March 12, 2023 – 12:00 PM EST at Stadio Olimpico 

Armand Lauriente (US Sassuolo) 

  • Total Goals:
  • Total Assists:
  • Shots Per Game: 2.3 

Despite Sassuolo playing on the road here we are looking at their third top shot taker, Armand Lauriente, to have two or more shots in this game at +110 Serie A odds.  

Lauriente has averaged a respectable 2.3 shots per game and a very respectable 1.9 average when playing on the road. The 24-year-old French national has been heavily involved in his recent games picking up either a booking, a goal, or an assist in all six of his previous six Serie A games.  

Sassuolo has taken the eighth-most amount of shots per game on the road this season and we believe Lauriente to be the best-priced player to go over his shot total in this matchup.   

Soccer Pick: Armand Lauriente Over 1.5 Shots (+110) at Heritage Sports (visit our Heritage Sports Review)

Real Betis Balompié vs. Villarreal CF 

Sunday, March 12, 2023 – 12:30 PM EST at Estadio de la Ceramica 

Borja Iglesias (Real Betis Balompié) 

  • Total Goals: 10 
  • Total Assists:
  • Shots Per Game: 2.6 

Borja Iglesias has been Real Betis's man striker this season averaging the most shots on target per game at 1.2 while also being the top scorer by a long shot having scored 10 goals compared to the second-highest of just 4. Iglesias averages a respectable 1.8 shots on the road and we are looking to lay the -135 for him to see 1 or more shots on target in this matchup.  

Villarreal allows the seventh-most amount of shots on net on home soil across the entire league while Real Betis takes the 4th most amount on the road. Don’t be surprised to see Borja bang in a goal in this game either at some nice La Liga odds of +250.
