LAS VEGAS – The soccer action in three of the biggest leagues in the world on Monday. Thus, betting value is there to be found across the globe in the England Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A.

England Premier League: West Ham United vs Leicester City

Both teams are 1-0 in the young EPL season, but at least one team is bound to lose their perfect record on Monday. West Ham United won by a score of 4-2 in their opener while Leicester was by a 1-0 score.

When the two meet, West Ham will be the slight favorite on the spread on online gambling sites.

West Ham vs Leicester Spread Odds

  • West Ham -0.0 -130
  • Leicester City +0.0 +110

Given that the draw is in play and West Ham is only +145 on the three-way moneyline, it seems adding the push possibility is worth the lost value, especially so early in the season. With only one game played, West Ham is just two goals off of the league’s top-scoring team and could very well take over the top spot after their fixture against Leicester.

La Liga: Sevilla vs Getafe

The total in the matchup between Sevilla and Getafe is set at an interestingly low number, one that either team could realistically reach themselves.

Sevilla vs Getafe Total Odds

  • Over 1.5, 2 -130
  • Under 1.5, 2 +110

Sevilla scored three goals in their season-opener and could very well match their output in their match on Monday.

Getafe wasn’t able to score a goal in their first game, but if they can add to the number it would become exponentially easier to reach. Sports betting sites may be underselling the offensive ability on either end, but especially Sevilla.

Serie A: AC Milan vs Sampdoria

AC Milan and Sampdoria will both be taking part in their first matches of the season on Monday. In the meeting, AC Milan is favored by a moderate margin.

AC Milan vs Sampdoria Moneyline Odds

  • AC Milan EVEN
  • Sampdoria +275
  • Draw +250

Given there’s no sample size to go off of this season, it’s more of a toss-up than anything, but from top to bottom AC Milan has the better roster and should be able to start their season off with a win.
