Both teams have a lot on the line, as Juventus is looking to win their tenth consecutive Scudetto and AC Milan has hopes for taking their first league title in ten years.
While most bettors are putting action on Juventus at +115, sports bettors should take a further look at other betting lines if they are confident in the favorites.
If you take Juventus to win by one point with the -1.0 spread, the payout will be +210. Juventus is coming off of a 4-1 victory over Udinese in their last game, showing they are a high scoring team.
Sports bettors could cash in big should Juventus manage to take the win, therefore simply taking the Moneyline would see bettors lose out on a bigger payday if they don’t take Juventus to cover the spread.
The risk is increased, however, as all AC Milan would have to do is tie the game for it to be a loss, but for bettors who are confident in Juventus offense, then it only makes sense to take them to cover the one point spread and break the book.
Manchester United Vs. Manchester City Odds
- Moneyline: Manchester City EVEN, Manchester United +250, Draw +275
- Spread: Machester City -0.5
- Totals: Over/Under 2.5
Continuing with our soccer betting lineups, we head to the EPL where Manchester United clashes with Manchester City. Manchester City is the early favorites to win.
Underdog bettors may want to jump on the Manchester United +250 odds now as an upset is entirely likely for the day’s game.
Manchester City will be playing without many key players due to a COVID-19 outbreak, leaving them with limited options against Manchester United.
“We don’t have many players and like I said after the first press conference, to play one or two games is OK, but if this sustains for a long time and I can only use 14 or 15 players, it will be more difficult,” said Pep Guardiola, Manchester City’s manager.
The team is forced to be playing without star goalkeeper Ederson Santana de Moraes, right-back Kyle Walker, right-winger Ferran Torres, and forward Gabriel Jesus.
With the massive dent in their core team, especially the loss of Ederson, simply taking the longshot odds on Manchester United will break the book.
To take things further, however, sports bettors may also want to exploit the book by betting on the totals. With Ederson out, Manchester City is expected to be giving up more points than usual. Therefore, sports bettors may be tempted to take the Over.
If you wager that the total points scored between both teams will be three or more, then the payout is +120. Taking the totals in this game is a great way to break the book.
Minnesota Golden Gophers Vs. Michigan Wolverines Odds
- Moneyline: Michigan -340, Minnesota +270
- Spread: Michigan -7.5
- Totals: Over/Under 151.5
The Minnesota Golden Gophers are facing off against the Michigan Wolverines and they headline the big college basketball matchup at legal sports betting sites. As both teams are ranked in the top 20, this game will garner a lot of action.

Underdog bettors should note that the last time these teams faced off last season, Minnesota managed to pull the upset, as then star center Daniel Oturu dropped 30 on the Wolverines defense.
Fortunately for Michigan, Oturu is now in the NBA, and the Gophers offense, while being solid (ranked number 20 in the nation), have no star standout player so far that Michigan should be worried about.
What sports bettors can do to break the book, however, is take Minnesota to cover the underdog spread.
While Michigan is favored by -7.5, it is not farfetched for Minnesota to make it a closer game, especially in point guard Marcus Carr, currently averaging 22.1 points and 5.9 assists, manages to have a strong game.
Betting on the Golden Gophers to keep the game within two points, could net sports bettors a +215 return on the wager. Should the Gophers pull the upset or just make it a close game, sports bettors would break the book.
