ORLANDO, Fla.Soccer fans are being treated to an amazing day of matches across the top leagues in the world.

As most leagues are in their final weeks of action, clubs are jockeying for positions in order to punch a ticket to European play or avoid relegation.

With so much on the line, bettors are chomping at the bit to get in on Thursday’s soccer action.

Premier League

With only three matches to go in the EPL, the European tournament spots are anything but decided.

Leicester, Manchester United, and Sheffield United are all in contention for the Champions League and Europa League play but need every point they can get in their few remaining opportunities.

Premier League – 1:00 p.m. EST

  • Leicester -108
  • Sheffield United +300
  • Draw +240

Leicester currently sits in the final Champions League spot on the EPL table, but are in poor form following a surprising 4-1 thrashing by Bournemouth.

Sheffield is on the outside looking in, needing two points to slip into a Europa League spot.

Both these teams will be highly motivated to take a win and greatly improve their chances of qualification.

Premier League – 3:15 p.m. EST

  • Crystal Palace +725
  • Manchester United -278
  • Draw +240
  • Over/Under 2.5, 3

Manchester United also find themselves in the midst of this race, as they currently sit in fifth. Man U has been on a tear of late and hasn’t lost a match since all the way back on January 22.

They were the victims of a late equalizer in their last match against Southampton, but still, boast the most lethal-looking attack in the league as of late behind Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

La Liga

Over in Spain, the league could crown its champion on Thursday.

Real Madrid is currently four points clear of storied rival Barcelona at the top of the table and can win the crown with a victory today over Villareal.

La Liga – 3:00 p.m. EST

  • Real Madrid -240
  • Villareal +625
  • Draw +400

While Real Madrid is getting the heavy odds bump here, but Villareal is not an easy matchup for anyone. They sit in fifth in La Liga and match up well with Real Madrid.

In their last five meetings between the two clubs, each team has one win, with the remaining three all ending in a draw.

Real Madrid will be getting the majority of the bets at online sportsbooks, but the pressure of the trophy could be too much for the team in their first close-out game.

Major League Soccer

The MLS is Back tournament continues tonight with possibly the best matchup of the world-cup style tournament so far.

MLS – 10:30 p.m. EST

  • Columbus Crew +146
  • New York Red Bulls +182
  • Draw +182

Both Columbus and NYRB scored wins in their first matches, putting them in a tie at the top of Group E.

These were some of the toughest teams in MLS last year, and have so far proved they can keep up their success in 2020.

The winner of this match will lock up the group win and be guaranteed a spot in the Round of 16.

No matter which side of the globe they call home, soccer bettors are inundated with betting options for Thursday.
