In the Premier League, Liverpool has already wrapped up the title after a dominating season culminated last week when Chelsea took down Manchester City.

Now the battle shifts further down the table as teams compete for spots in European competition.

Chelsea (-196) looks to hold on to the fourth spot against West Ham (+560) in London, while Arsenal (-208) need every point they can get to move up from tenth place against Norwich City (+600).

Expect both of those top clubs to get the win Wednesday afternoon, as Chelsea is in top form and Norwich can’t seem to find a win even if it had directions.

Spal +750 AC Milan -227 Draw +340

Both the Milan teams match up with the worst two teams in the league this afternoon and oddsmakers aren’t giving the underdog much of a chance.

Instead, soccer bettors should tune into the Verona/Parma matchup, where two teams with even points will go at it for a huge boost in the standings.

Verona is getting the edge, but Parma at +225 is a terrific value in a relatively even-matched competition.

La Liga

Valencia vs. Athletic Bilbao
Valencia +151 Athletic Bilbao +210 Draw +210
Alaves vs. Granada
Alaves +135 Granada +245 Draw +205
Betis vs. Villarreal
Betis +205 Villarreal +145 Draw +230
Valladolid vs. Levante
Valladolid +136 Levante +225 Draw +220

Over in Spain, the La Liga matches of the day also feature some middle of the pack teams looking to sneak into a Europa League spot in the final phase of the season.

A bet that accumulated great interest since the odds were released is Athletic Bilbao (+210) to get the win over Valencia (+151).

While Valencia has been the better team over the season, Bilbao is playing above their means and has only lost one match since the return, a 1-0 bout to Barcelona.

No matter which league you tune into there is opportunity galore across the world of soccer.
