Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I am in Philadelphia with my wife spending the holiday with the inlaws and apologize for not having the time to break down these games in much more detail. If anyone knows of any good bars to catch soccer in the city of brotherly love, please hit me up on Twitter @AlexJBlowers.
CHELSEA VS MANCHESTER UNITED
WHAT: Premier League, Matchday 13
KICK OFF: Sunday, November 28th, 11:30AM EST
WHERE: Stamford Bridge, London, England
Michael Carrick has taken temporary charge of Manchester United, but what has changed? He worked under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and will have the same ideas that have contributed to their recent poor form.
They face a Chelsea side who just dismantled Juventus 4-0 in the UEFA Champions League at Stamford Bridge and are looking unstoppable at the moment. Romelu Lukaku was on the bench after missing the last month with an ankle injury and will have an ax to grind against his former club.
Back Thomas Tuchel‘s side to win this match comfortably by at least two goals.
PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING TIP: Chelsea -1.5 Goals +175
VFL WOLFSBURG VS BORUSSIA DORTMUND
WHAT: Bundesliga, Matchday 13
KICK OFF: Saturday, November 27th, 9:30AM EST
WHERE: Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg, Germany
I have a feeling we’ll see goals in this game, and I’m going to play it safe at Over 2.5. Last week, Donyell Malen opened his Bundesliga account for Borussia Dortmund, who have averaged four goals per game this season (48 in 12).
VfL Wolfsburg strikers Lukas Nmecha and Wout Weghorst are in fine form with twelve goals between them this season. I think they’ll cause problems for this Dortmund defense and get on the scoresheet.
BUNDESLIGA BETTING TIP: Over 2.5 Goals -140
SAINT-ÉTIENNE VS PSG
WHAT: Ligue 1, Matchday 15
KICK OFF: Sunday, November 28th, 7AM EST
WHERE: Stage Geoffroy Guichard, Saint Etienne, France
WATCH: beIN Sports
PSG should easily be beating this Saint-Etienne side, who are down in 19th. If you know their current manager Claude Puel from his spells at Southampton and Leicester City, you’ll know he plays very defensive football and will let PSG dominate possession.
Put your money behind the Parisians, breaking down Saint-Etienne and winning this game comfortably by a minimum of two goals.
LIGUE 1 BETTING TIP: PSG -1.5 Goals -110
