UEFA Europa Conference League picks for Arsenal vs. Zurich
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Viborg vs. West Ham picks from SportsLine’s soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine’s top soccer editor for more than five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. Sutton also has been on a roll with his best bets, going 133-99 in his last 232 soccer picks, returning nearly $3,000 for $100 bettors.
For Zurich vs. Arsenal, Sutton is picking Arsenal to win by at least 1.5 goals for a -130 payout. The EPL club didn’t participate in any European competition last year and will try to make a big impact as they open up on the road. The expert expects Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will change up his lineup following the league loss to Manchester United last weekend, but has full confidence a new lineup can get the job done in Switzerland.
“Striker Eddie Nketiah could replace Gabriel Jesus up top and he’s shown he can lead Arsenal’s attack when given the chance,” Sutton told SportsLine. “He’s scored in each of his last two starts in the Europa League and he found the back of the net in five of his final seven matches last season.”
