We are playing it cautious this week after seeing the way some of last week’s games took shape. Between COVID and injuries, most teams and players have been a little rusty or a small bit unfit.

As well as this, we have the added distraction of the transfer market. We are happy with odds of +350 on this week’s parlay featuring games from the Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, so let’s get into our soccer picks.

Levante UD vs. RCD Mallorca

Saturday, January 8, 2022 – 08:00 AM EST at Ciutat de Valencia

The early kick-off in La Liga on Saturday morning sees the winless Levante play host to newly-promoted Mallorca. Unbelievably, the team from Valencia have not won a single game all season and they are currently 8 points away from 17th place and ahead of the relegation zone.

Levante plays one way and that’s high intensity. They have seen the 4th most amount of games go over 2.5 in the league and although they are dead last, they are an exciting team to watch, it has to be said.

Mallorca know how to hold their own on home soil but away from home they have struggled and although 9 points from a possible 27 aren’t as low as Levante’s two from 27, they have only won two away games all season and one of those was a shock result to Atletico Madrid.

Betting Pick

Either way, we don’t care who wins this game once we see over 1.5 goals here, and at -250 we believe this to be a nice value, the over 2.5 is +125 which seems really tasty considering Levante will see this as a must-win game.

Sevilla FC vs. Getafe CF

Sunday, January 9, 2022 – 10:15 AM EST at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán

This play is pretty straightforward, it’s the 2nd best home team in the league taking on the 2nd worst away team in the league. Sevilla have won 7 and drawn 1 and lost 2 of their previous 10 games to Getafe.

Getafe have also only managed to score a total of three away goals all season, the lowest in the league. Sevilla have managed to score the second most amount of home goals in the league.

The Pick

So for us, this is all stats-based, besides the general fact that Sevilla are the much better team and although Getafe can scrap and spring a few surprises, they haven’t done that much since their coach left in the summer to manage Valencia.

Take Sevilla to get the job done on home soil against a poor Getafe team.

FC Empoli vs. Sassuolo

Sunday, January 9, 2022 – 06:30 AM EST at Stadio Carlo Castellani

This is the master vs. the pupil in terms of playing philosophy. Sassuolo are the former and Empoli the latter. Both these teams like to close their opponents down and catch them in an outnumbered situation by retaining the ball quickly. Yes, we know all very technical.

Luckily for us, this has resulted in both these teams' games seeing a lot of goals and a lot of over, combined they have seen 29 of their previous 38 games go over 2.5 goals and just two of their last 10 meetings seen the under 2.5 hit.

The Pick

We are more than happy to play this game over 2.5 in a parlay and even more interesting here is Sassuolo can go level on points with Empoli with a win.

Serie A Pick: Over 2.5 Goals (-200) at BetOnline

Hellas Verona vs. Sportiva Salernitana

Sunday, January 9, 2022 – 03:45 PM EST at Marcantonio Bentegodi

Verona are a much better team than their current league place suggests (12th). With that being said a win would draw them level on points with 9th place Empoli and, if results go their way, a winning streak of 2/3 games could see them get close to the last European spot for the 6th place.

Salernitana were luckily bought at the last minute or else they would have been kicked out of the league as their owner also had shares in another Serie A club, which is obviously unethical. If he contented to be the owner, they would surely have been kicked out of the league.

The Pick

Salernitana are 2nd last in the league table and have only managed to pick up four points from 27 on the road. Verona should prove to be too strong at home for this struggling team.
