England – Premier League
Manchester City v. Manchester United
Pick: Manchester City -108 (5Dimes)
Man City has had Man U’s number in this fixture of late, winning the last three. Man City has been dominant at home the last few years. United is yet to win a match on the road. United’s leaky defense will be the difference today.
Spain – La Liga
Athletic Bilbao v. Sevilla
Pick: Sevilla pk +110 (5Dimes)
The defending Europa League champions, Sevilla, are off to a good start – and could move into first place with a win today. Sevilla has won four of their last five in both all competitions and in the league. Bilbao have only eight points in nine games in La Liga, while scoring a measly six goals. Sevilla should win today.
Italy – Serie A
Chievo v. Sassuolo
Pick: Sassuolo pk +128 (5Dimes)
Sassuolo is in good form of late, winning two and drawing one in their last three matches. The draw came against champions Juventus. Chievo is in awful form, having lost six of their last seven matches – while only scoring six goals. I think Sassuolo will win today.
Turkey – Super League
Besiktas v. Fenerbahce
Pick: Besiktas pk +102 (5Dimes)
Although Fenerbahce have dominated this fixture in recent years, Besiktas are the better team this year. Fenerbahce has not been the same since switching managers in the off season. Besiktas should have beaten both Arsenal and Tottenham. Fenerbahce are not a good road team. Besiktas’ Demba Ba and Olcay Sahan will give Fenerbahce all kinds of trouble.
