Real Sociedad vs. RC Celta Vigo
Saturday, February 18, 2023 – 08:00 AM EST at Reale Arena
Iago Aspas (RC Celta Vigo)
- Over/Under Shots on Target
Real Sociedad faces a tough task on their hands having to deal with Celta Vigo’s main threat in Iago Aspas. The Spanish striker has scored nine goals this campaign for Celta Vigo and leads the team in almost all the major attacking stats.
Aspas has the highest goals, assists, expected goals, shots on target per 90 minutes, expected assists per game, and big chances created - as well as being the best-rated player in this Celta Vigo team.
The big stat we are looking at is Aspas to pick up just one shot on target in this road game at (-115). Averaging 1.2 shots on target per game as well as 2.3 shots when playing on the road, we like his chances of doing so against this Real Sociedad side who allow 11 shots on average on home soil.
Celta Vigo picks up 12 shots per game on the road if Vigo is getting chances here most are falling to Aspas and we love the La Liga odds for him at only (-115) to see over 0.5 shots on target in this matchup.

Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Fulham F.C.
Saturday, February 18, 2023 – 10:00 AM EST at Amex Stadium
Aleksandar Mitrović (Fulham FC)
- Anytime Goalscorer
It’s been a baron spell in front of the net for Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrović after the Serbian failed to score now in his previous seven appearances for Fulham.
Prior to this, the striker had been in fine form scoring a goal in 6 of his previous 9 appearances for both club and country.
Although Mitrović has not scored for seven games now he still ranks as the 5th highest scorer in the English Premier League this season and leads Fulham with 11 goals as opposed to their second-highest scorer who only has scored four times.
Mitrović averaged 1.7 shots on target per game as well as 4.5 shots in total. Playing on the road hasn’t bothered Mitrović in the past as he has scored in 5 of his 9 away games to date.
At (+210) at English Premier League odds to score we are backing Mitrović to break his cold spell in front of the net, Brighton is strong at home but have failed to beat Fulham in their previous six games. The last time these two met Mitrović scored the first goal of the game in a 2-1 Fulham victory.
Soccer Pick: Aleksandar Mitrović - Anytime Goalscorer (+210) at Top Rated Sportsbooks
Atalanta B.C. vs. U.S. Lecce
Sunday, February 19, 2023 – 06:30 AM EST at Gewiss Stadium
Ademola Lookman (Atalanta B.C.)
- Anytime Goalscorer
We are going back to the drawing board with Atalanta’s top scorer this season Ademola Lookman. Although Atalanta won last time out and Lookman had two shots on target he failed to find the back of the net.
We are backing him to do so in this home fixture against 13th-place Lecce, with Atalanta currently sitting in 3rd themselves. Lookman has been the league's joint second-highest scorer this season having scored 12 goals.
Scoring 2/2/2/1 goals and then going three games without a goal has to be frustrating for the Nigerian, but don’t be surprised to see him score more than once in this matchup.
Lookman can be bet at (+800) with top-rated sportsbooks to score 2+ goals and (+3400) if you believe he can get his first hat trick of the year.
Soccer Pick: Ademola Lookman - Anytime Goalscorer (+150) at BetOnline
