Most of the bigger teams in Europe are in action this week as the International Champions Cup continues.

Tuesday's action sees Arsenal take on Real Madrid in a blockbuster tie in Landover, MD. Kick-off is at 7pm ET. That's followed by Bayern v Milan and Atletico Madrid v Guadalajara.

Wednesday starts with an all Italian clash between Juventus and Inter in Nanjing (7:30am KO), then Fiorentina v Benfica.

Man Utd v Tottenham

One of the biggest matches of the week is on Thursday morning, again at 7:30am Eastern, as Tottenham Hotspur take on Manchester United in Shanghai. Both teams are coming off of wins in their opening matches.

Man Utd v Tottenham

In these pre-season matches, it's hard to find value in outright markets. Some teams are further ahead in preparations than others, and therefore are fitter and quicker to the ball.



Because of this, we like to play the exotic markets for some low stakes fun. We'll go with Paul Pogba any time goal scorer against Spurs at +215 with PointsBet New Jersey.

Any-Time Goal Scorer





Bayern are strong favorites in this one after a surprising loss to Arsenal was followed up with a great win against Real Madrid. This will be their last pre-season prep so they should be fully ready. On the other hand, Milan haven't even played a warm-up game yet, so they will probably need this and are without a few starters.



Antonio Conte's new team Inter lost their first run out to Manchester United a few days ago, and are fancied to lose again against a strong Juve side. This will be a feisty affair as the "Derby d'Italia" means something even in pre-season.

Arsenal v Real Madrid


A tasty looking fixture as Madrid needs a win after losing the opener to Bayern. Rumors are circulating about the future of Gareth Bale in Madrid, and he won't feature here. Arsenal might just be overpriced; they have looked good so far in the competition and at +205 with DraftKings, are worth a small bet.
