Sean Miller's Wednesday Soccer Picks: Chelsea vs Arsenal, Atalanta vs Benevento, Torino vs AC Milan
Chelsea (-115) vs. Arsenal (+360), 3:15 pm EDT (NBCSN and Fubo.TV); Atalanta (-590) vs. Benevento (+1400), 2:45 pm (ESPN+); Torino (+310) vs. AC Milan (-120), 2:45 pm (ESPN+).
Serie A, Premier League, both have top four battles to watch down the stretch
How about these races around the top leagues in Europe?
While the titles are decided in England and Italy, both top four battles could come down to the wire.
They could, though, also be all but over after tomorrow.
In Italy, if Juventus falters today, while AC Milan and Atalanta are victorious, we might see the top four all but locked in.
It could be the same in England: If Chelsea can win today against Arsenal, it puts the top four nearly out of reach for West Ham and Liverpool, especially if Manchester United can beat Liverpool Thursday.
Chelsea has the F.A. Cup Final to look forward to on Saturday, but should be able to put out a decent enough team to beat Arsenal today.
In Italy, after seeing what Napoli did yesterday to a team down the table, I expect Atalanta to do the same, and move to within one win of the UEFA Champions League for 2021-22.
