Soccer Weekly Free Picks

 
The VegasInsider.com Soccer Free Picks feature will be updated on a weekly basis by our Editorial Staff, featuring Chris David and other individuals. The selections will include plays from the major European leagues and competitions, plus MLS and FIFA matchups as well.)
Bundesliga
League: Bundesliga (Germany)
Matchup: Hannover 96 at FC Augsburg
Date / Time: Saturday, Mar. 16 - 10:30 a.m. ET
Best Bet: FC Augsburg (-151)
Must-win spot for FC Augsburg, who is trying to stay out of the relegation zone and that’s exactly where Hannover 96 sits. Hannover comes into this game with four straight losses and it’s one of two teams that are winless in league play this season. Augsburg certainly not a powerhouse, but better at home (3-4-5) and the offense (21 goals) is decent. Augsburg has won three of the last four in this series and one goal should get all three points and two will certainly do the job. -CD
Premier League
League: Premier League (England)
Matchup:Leicester City at Burnley
Date / Time: Saturday, Mar. 16 - 11:00 a.m. ET
Best Bet: Leicester City (+138)
Burnley had a nice season going for them but three straight defeats have put the club near the bottom of the table. Leicester City is finally starting to show confidence and wins in two of its last three games behind five goals has helped the club. The pair played to a 0-0 draw in November and the Foxes were clearly the more aggressive club. I believe they’ll break through and keep the momentum going with a road win at Turf Moor, something that seven visitors have been able to do this season. -CD
La Liga
League: La Liga (Spain)
Matchup: Girona at Leganes
Date / Time: Saturday, Mar. 16 - 3:45 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Leganes (+112)
While a draw (+217) is very likely based on the home and away tendencies for Leganes (6-6-1) and Girona (5-4-4), I’m going to lean to the host. Since starting the season 0-1-4, Leganes has gone 2-3-0 after a loss and it enters this match off a 1-0 setback at Atletico Madrid last Saturday. Girona is also off a loss and when it loses, the defeats have piled up this season. Even though Leganes is 0-4-3 in its last seven versus Girona, I expect that streak to end at home on Saturday. -CD
MLS
League: MLS (United States)
Matchup: Real Salt Lake at D.C. United
Date / Time: Saturday, Mar. 16 - 6:00 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Both Teams to Score (-140)
D.C. United (-153) listed as a healthy favorite in this spot and teams traveling from the West Coast to the East Coast in the MLS haven’t had much success. Real Salt Lake wasn’t great on the road last season but it did score at least one goal in four of six games on the East Coast in 2018. Meanwhile, United was blanked just twice in 17 home games last season and even though it hasn’t allowed a goal in two games, I expect Real Salt Lake to get on the board here in the primetime showdown. -CD
MLS
League: MLS (United States)
Matchup: Minnesota United at L.A. Galaxy
Date / Time: Saturday, Mar. 16 - 10:30 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Minnesota (+0.5, -200)
Despite opening the season with five straight road games, Minnesota has forgotten about last year’s road woes and opened the season with two wins. The offense has some nice pieces and they won’t be scared of the Galaxy, a team they drew 2-2 with last season. Plus, L.A. won't have Zlatan Ibrahimovic available and they're just a different club offensively without him. I’ll take the goal-line with United and expect a win (+213) or road draw. -CD
