UEFA Europa League picks for Roma vs. Leverkusen
Before you tune in to Thursday's match, you need to see the UEFA Europa Conference League picks from SportsLine soccer expert 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 finished 2022 as SportsLine's top soccer expert with a 165-130-2 mark, returning nearly $2,200 for $100 players. He also excelled in Serie A with a 63-39-1 mark, returning nearly $1,600.
For Leverkusen vs. Roma, Sutton is picking Under 2.5 goals to be scored for a -135 payout. After the teams combined for seven shots on target in the first leg and had only five corner shots, the expert expects Roma to buckle down with most of the action happening in the middle of the pitch.
Fewer than 2.5 goals have been scored in each of Roma's last five fixtures across all competitions, while the Under has also hit in four of Leverkusen's last five games in the Europa League. Roma have also kept a clean sheet in their last two fixtures, and Sutton expects that trend to continue in Thursday's match. Stream the game here.
