What's going on? Everybody rare out here.
Welcome to the rail route network and welcome to this Wednesday edition of kicking it.
Now, Normally, I'm here talking about that football.
But today I'm talking about football and I'm talking about soccer, talking about the other football, the football from around the world.
Just not here in North America, where we call it soccer.
I'm gonna be breaking down all the games from the English Premier League this weekend as well as the Buddhist League, and we're also gonna take a look at the MLS.
But I'm going to start with the big Cup today.
It was Bayern Munich vs Boris, the dormant for the German Super Cup.
And if you guys are just football fans in general, you missed a great game if you didn't watch it today, Buying takes an early lead, like with seven in the 18th minute of the game.
Then they make it to nail off of Thomas Mueller.
Header Boris, the doorman comes back, makes it to toe one right at the end of the half.
Then they tie up the game dormant, then just dominated possession for the rest of the game.
They dominated chances.
I thought that the trophy run was over for Bayern Munich and then suddenly out of nowhere and I mean out of nowhere.
Bayern Munich Joshua Image gets taken down in the box, no penalty and, while falling to ground, flicks his leg behind him while he's on his belly in the 80th minute and puts the game away from Bayern Munich, winning their 5th 5th title in 2020.
I bought this shirt right after the Champions League.
The triple right.
They want the dice, The Pokal.
They won the Buddhist legal league and they want Champions League.
It's already outdated about it.
Two months ago, five times sit handsy Flick took over Bayern Munich in December of last year.
Since he's taken over, he has three losses as a coach and five trophies.
And, of course, Bayern Munich will participate in the Club World Cup and try to make it six trophies in 2020.
It's been a terrible 2020 for most people, but it has been fabulous for Bayern Munich.
That being said, buying didn't play great.
I can't sit here right now and say I was proud of my boys.
I can't sit here right now and say, Hey, they were just dying.
I mean, they look good to start the game and they kind of died off endor*****t.
They beat their defense and I think what we're starting to see is tired legs with Bayern Munich, with all the games they played, their off season was like three weeks long.
I mean, they played right until the end of August.
They were back to middle of September, so they're gonna be going into Week three.
Had a big loss last week, but so dormant.
Byron is gonna be looking for some revenge, but there's a lot of good games going on, so I want to just jump right into it.
I want to start looking at some of these games that we're gonna be looking at.
It was a great if you guys watch.
If you guys are football fans and you missed last week's football games.
I mean, it was just crazy.
The Manchester United game was insane.
Just absolutely probably one of the most undeserving winds I've seen out of a team first time in history.
We've seen a game finish after the final whistle.
The game should have ended 22 calls.
The panel doesn't called referee doesn't call a penalty blows the final whistle.
They go to V A are they give the penalty? Manchester United sneaks away with three points.
Absolutely, positively crazy.
And let's start in English Premier League.
All the times I will be giving our eastern standard times with 7:30 a.
You got Crystal Palace going up against Chelsea.
Chelsea Who? To me.
I mean, they spent a lot of money bringing Timo Werner having had a whole lot to show for it.
And Crystal Palace is sort of this sneaky, sneaky team, right? But I mean, I think you gotta go with Chelsea with this game.
I mean, you just have to go with the dominance and the dominance is Chelsea.
Don't fool yourself.
If you thought I was going to give you any other answer besides, go with Chelsea, you're out of your freaking mind.
We got Brighton going on against Everton now everything.
They've looked really good at times this year.
They've looked really bad at times this year and I don't know, I kind of want to turn around and say this should be an easy when for Everton.
Just pick Abington.
Make your life easy.
Brighton pushed Manchester United to the absolute limit last week.
Again, they probably should have won the game.
They just couldn't capitalize on their chances.
Averaging finishes 21 against Crystal Palace.
Now I get Everton's third place with 30 on the season.
They like that 12 points.
Leicester City and Liverpool are the only other two teams that have secured all nine points.
It's a tough game for me.
You know, the smart bet would be to go and just take Everton this game.
But I was really impressed with what I saw with Brighton last week.
I'm gonna go against the grain.
I really haven't gonna go against the grain.
I'm gonna take Brighton to win this game.
I'm not saying you have to take bright in the win this game, but I think that if there was an upset this week, this could be it.
And then my boys, Leeds United.
I've thrown as a lot of you know, my support behind leads this year.
First time back up in the Premier League in 16 years, coming off their first Darby, other returning and Sheffield United last week and what was a grinded out sloppy game? They walked away with one.
Nothing lead or one. Nothing.
They gotta play Manchester City.
Who lost to the league leaders Leicester City 5 to 2.
Pep Guardiola has got to be feeling the heat at this point.
There's a reason that Vegas has leads at a plus 5 70 right now and I hate betting against my boys.
I hate going against my leads, but I gotta go with Manchester City.
This game You can't bet with your heart on this one.
You got a bet with your head and then you've got Burnley versus Newcastle United.
I need to Castle tied taught in them last week, which I think was surprising to a lot of people definitely wasn't something I saw coming.
And I think that taught them least in my opinion, has underperformed this season.
Burnley dropped to South Hampton one nil, I think regardless of all that, I mean it's a tight game.
The over under's 2.
5 I'd be taking the under, you know, the draw is plus 2 +04 This is a game you almost want to pick the draw.
I have no faith in Newcastle.
I'm gonna go with Burnley Toe win this game then you go west Bram taking on South Hampton.
I think that Southampton is a better team.
West Bram tied Chelsea 33 last week.
But as I said, I think that was more about Chelsea than West Bram, now West.
Brum has had its moments.
Had a great game against Everton a couple weeks ago.
I still think I'm gonna go with Southampton to win this game.
This is on Sunday by the way.
They got two games at seven am on Sunday.
Then you got West Ham versus Leicester City.
I mean Leicester City, top of the league, trying to secure 12 points.
I'm gonna take Lester.
I think this is their game.
To win the over Under is two and three quarters.
I think Leicester can win by three goals or more.
I'd even take the over on this game.
Mhm! Then you got Fulham.
Take it on the wolves.
I think this is gonna be a pretty simple victory for the wolves.
I'm gonna be honest with you.
I don't see this being much of a challenge.
And if I was a betting man, I would take the wolves at minus 200.
Over under is two and a quarter.
I'd probably go under on that game.
Now, you know what? The wolves could score.
I might go with the over.
I might go with the over.
I would take the wolves.
I take the spread, which is minus one.
I take the money line minus 200.
I'd probably take the over, which is minus 1 19 at 22 and a quarter.
You got Sheffield at ****nal and what ****nal are we going to see? Is ****nal really? Are the Gunners coming back this season? I think that's been a question for a lot of people.
Are they coming back? Won the community shield over labor pool? Okay, two wins and a loss this season.
What can we expect out of ****nal and that? And that's my thing is do I want to throw bad because I lost 31 to Liverpool last week.
I think that ****nal's such a better team than Sheffield and because of that, I'm going to go with ****nal.
They should be able to score I'm probably taking the under at 2.5.
I think it's gonna be a tight game and then you've got this game 11:30 a.m.
All by its lonesome taught in them versus Manu.
Tottenham has been massively disappointing this year.
Manchester United has had an awful start, even securing their three points last week, it was awful.
Now Manu is the heavy, heavy favorite in this game.
Now the spread is 1.
5, but there are minus 1 13 Taught him the plus 2 78 on the money line.
These were two teams that just haven't performed these air two teams that haven't lived up to their expectations.
They haven't carried that shield with pride.
I guess you could call it.
You know, the draw is plus 2 52 and I'm almost leaning towards a draw in this game.
Now I know I gotta pick a straight pick up and tell you who I think is gonna win.
I've been less impressed with Manchester United than I have been with Tottenham.
Like that's how I'm starting.
That's how I'm going through this right now.
And I think I got no choice.
I'm gonna go talk to them to be Manchester United to pull off the upset If I gotta pick one straight up.
Like I said, I'm liking the draw in this game.
But if I got to take a game straight up, I'm gonna go with Tottenham.
I just don't trust Manu.
I don't think that they've given me no indication that they're going to get their stuff together to really challenge this season.
So we'll have to see.
Then you got the big headliner at 2:15 p.
m. Eastern time on Sunday.
Now I know for a lot of my North American friends here, that means the other football American football is on.
And they probably won't be a lot of interest in the round ball going to the back of the net and probably for the best.
Because I think Liverpool is just going to eat this game up.
They're gonna walk away with another three.
They're gonna have 12 points on the season.
Um, I don't see a situation where Aston Villa beats Liverpool.
I'm taking Liverpool with 1.
I'm not doing the money line.
The money line is minus 3 22.
You're not betting $322 to 100? Uh, but I'm probably taking the over. That's a three.
I think that Liverpool kid win with over 30/3.
So that is the Premier Games.
So the week man and I again there's some good games there.
There's been some e think my most matchup I'm looking the most forward to is taught as yeah taught them and Manchester United.
I think that that's gonna be a I think that's gonna be a pretty solid game and a game that people are gonna wanna people gonna wanna pay attention to.
I think I think it could be really, really solid, really, really good.
I think we could see a lot of surprising things happen in that game.
Now let's go over to the Bundesliga.
That was absolutely crazy last week.
Two of the Giants falling.
Now I know we've only had been two games in the season, but Hoffenheim and Oxford are the top two teams in the league.
The Onley undefeated teams in the league, Bayern Munich, the triple the five times five champions eight in a row are sitting in seventh was a dormant in 10th, but they only played two games.
He they've only played two games, but just a crazy week last week.
But the first game kicking off tomorrow.
Our Friday story? Today's only Wednesday.
Kicking off tomorrow is Maine's versus Union Berlin.
Uh, what an awful what an awful game to put on it.
You're to 30 Friday spot.
I don't think it's even gonna be enjoyable.
I'm gonna go with Berlin because I think they're better than Maine's.
But, I mean, it's a game. I'll be honest with you.
I won't be watching it.
It's not a game that will capture my attention and make me hang on to it. I won't be watching that game.
That's gonna be boring.
And then Sunday, more Saturday morning, you got Freiburg taking on Boris adornment and again dormant.
They're coming off while two losses in a row now right? They had that embarrassing loss last week, falling to nothing toe Oxford.
Then they lose today, 32 in the German Super Cup, and I think poor Friedberg or Freiburg is going to get the wrath of Doraemon today are on Saturday they're gonna be just in trouble as those guys go.
The over under is three and a quarter.
I'm taking the over Dorman's appoint a goal and a half favorite on the spread.
I'm taking dormant at minus 1.
Don't even be looking at the draw.
The money line Sox minus 3.
44 for Boris Adornment.
So I'm not touching the money line.
But I'm taking the spread on.
I'm taking the over.
I think Dorman's gonna just destroy Freiburg on Saturday.
Yeah, And then you got brushing Munchengladbach versus Cologne glove box.
Probably going to destroy them.
They're half point favorite minus 1 26.
I'm taking the money line at 1.
23 I'm taking the under, which is at three right now at minus 1. 25.
I This is a game I touch to spread money line and total.
I don't think alone has a chance against Munchengladbach on.
I think that they should.
They should take it pretty pretty easy.
And now I still at 9.
30 on Saturday you got Hoffenheim who? Well, they pulled off.
I think the unexpected last week Everybody thought that Bayern Munich was gonna walk in there and just light them up.
They ended up lighting up Bayern Munich 4 to 1.
Munich had no response for them this week.
I enrich Frankfurt.
Frankfurt is a slight favorite.
The spread is even.
The over under is three and a quarter to high scoring teams.
Frankfurt's in fifth place right now.
I ain't that often times the better team.
And I plus 1 81 I'm gonna take Yeah, I'm gonna take them a plus 1 81.
I mean, that's an easy 100 dollar bet.
Obviously, I'll take the spread it +106 I'm not, and I'm gonna take the under a three and a quarter at minus 1 14. I mean, that's insane.
They're not gonna score for, uh, again, the two high scoring teams you could end.
They could end up scoring four goals.
Oh, I'm gonna take the under.
I'm not gonna bet it.
I'm not gonna bet the over under because it could go either way.
Then you got Bell Fields or Bielefeld vertebrae. Hman.
I'll take vertebrae.
Been again It's a game I have zero interest in watching.
I don't I don't think it's gonna be entertaining.
It all seemed like the next game you got.
Buying Leverkusen versus Stuttgart's um labor cruisin should make easy workers.
I assume they're only a half a goal favorite at one minus 1 26.
I'm probably taking out.
I'm taking the money line at 1 21 and I'm taking the over at three and a quarter at minus 102 It's, I think, that there's gonna be more goals than that.
And then the after you know, the 12.
30 the marquee game at 12 30 Shell ca versus lipstick.
I mean, the rebel is gonna is gonna take them right down.
I'm not touching the money line at minus 400 but I might take you know, even the spread at 1.
5 is minus 1 44.
You know, the over his minus 1 25 or three and a quarter that I wouldn't lay a dime on this game because it's just not worth it.
Lipstick is gonna win.
There's no problem if I'm gonna straight pick and pool. I'm taking lipstick.
Then we move into Sunday, we got Roxburgh versus Wolfsburg.
This should be a you know, I know no team of Warner and all that kind of thing.
I know Oxford is sitting second in the league, six points undefeated this season.
Now, it's easy to say that doorman was the much better team than Oxford last week, and they want it.
But I don't think I think that this is the week that Oxford comes crashing back down to Earth.
I'm gonna take Wolfsburg to win this game and then a 12 PM Eastern time.
The Berlin going up against Bayern Munich, Bayern Munich on the money line is minus 1 66 minus 1 60 60 over is a minus, minus 107 under his minus 1 20 is minus 1 23.
I'm probably taking Byron after 2.
+104 That's the only money I'm gonna put on this.
I'm not gonna touch the draw, even if it is at plus 6. 40.
Now, Byron hasn't looked sharp the last two games.
They're a little bit tired. They just had a game today.
They're gonna be going on What.
Thursday. Friday Saturday, three days rest, four days rest.
Can buyer Munich lose back to back season games? Not a chance.
I don't care how tired they are.
They losing the Hertha Berlin, I'll tell you that right now.
Take buying on the straight pickup.
I wouldn't touch money anywhere else, so I wouldn't touch any of the money on this game.
It's not worth it.
Let me put in a lot of money that you're just not going to get back.
And then we got the MLS coming down this weekend.
Now, MLS is not my strong suit.
I'm gonna be bringing my boy out, Um, on break on in the next couple of weeks, hopefully to talk to me and educate me a little bit on Major League Soccer.
But I do know a little bit about what's going on.
We got a big game between Toronto FC in Philadelphia in Philadelphia this weekend.
Both teams or two points out of first place, tied for site, while they both have 28 points.
Philadelphia second, Toronto FC, respectively in third.
The team who wins this game could see themselves in first.
Toronto just came off a big win over Columbus.
We'll talk about that game when we get to it.
But their opening game that we're gonna be looking at in the New York Red Bulls vs Orlando City.
From what I know, I'm gonna probably looking at Orlando City.
They seem to be the big favorites for this game.
Then you got the Atlanta United first D C united.
It's seriously a pick.
Um, it's a straight pick him both those t these two teams are evenly matched.
I'm gonna go with Atlanta Onley because they're the home team.
No other reason.
Chicago Fire going on against my countrymen.
The Montreal Impact Montreal impact, In my opinion, on a great team, this is a game.
I might almost be looking at a draw, but I gotta pick a pick up.
So I'm gonna take the Chicago Fire to beat Montreal, the New England Revolution, and they're gonna make easy work of Nashville.
I don't think it should be much of a game.
And then you got the Philadelphia University Toronto FC.
Now you know they got Toronto FC is the big favorite at minus 107 in Philadelphia, coming in a plus 2 to 33.
I'm liking this Toronto team in I really am.
I'm liking this Toronto FC team I have.
I've watched a little bit of them play because that's our local team here that I could watch.
I've been somewhat impressed with what I've seen from them, you know, with with second place on the line and with a little bit of luck, the possibility of moving on the top of the table in the East I'm gonna go with Toronto in this game.
I think that they're going to know how to score and they're gonna go after Philadelphia and they're gonna win this game.
Then you got New York City football club taking on Inter Milan or Inter Miami.
Sorry, Inter Milan taking on Inter Milan, Inter Miami.
I'm gonna go with into Miami in this game, Um, basically, because I think they're a better team in New York City.
You know, they'll say Minnesota United should easily kind of tramp.
Cincinnati, I think I think if you're looking for another tight game, sporting Kansas City in Houston are gonna be good.
I think the dynamo and and sporting really match up well.
Houston's a site flavor favorite in this game.
I think I'm actually gonna lean more towards sporting Kansas City, though over the Dynamo to win this game.
And then Columbus has Dallas.
This is in Ah, this isn't Ah, Pushover game for Columbus.
I think they're gonna win because they know that 2nd and 3rd are going at it and they need to protect first place.
But, dude, I mean, it's FC Dallas is no pushover of a team.
They're not going to make it easy on them.
And I hope they don't think they are, because they could push him to the brink.
And there wasn't a whole lot of people that we're picking Toronto FC to be Columbus last week and look what happened.
I'm still gonna take Columbus to win this game, though.
Then you got to Vancouver whitecaps taking on the Seattle Sounders.
Uh, you know, kind of rivals right across the border from each other.
Seattle should take this game pretty easy.
You got the Los Angeles Galaxy taking on San Jose.
You know, the galaxy in the earthquakes again, two teams that I think matchup.
Great. I'm gonna lean towards the Galaxy.
But this could be anybody's game.
If I'm gonna be completely and utterly honest with you when you look when you look at Colorado in Portland, I mean, the timbers should take care of the rapids Pretty easy.
The timber there are much, much better team.
If you gotta have a straight pick up, I'd be taking that.
I'd be taking that game for sure.
All right, then.
When you look at, uh, Los Angeles FC versus Real Salt Lake, that's gonna be another tight game.
I'm gonna lean towards real Salt Lake.
But that's another game that I think really anybody could win.
Alright, guys, that's pretty much all I got for today.
Here on kicking it.
Like I said, Man, it's gonna be a fun fun week of Ah, soccer again or football again.
Whatever you wanna call it.
If you're from Europe, we'll call it football.
If you're from North America, we'll call it soccer.
So we don't confuse anybody.
A lot of good games going on this weekend.
I think that the e p l and is you know, the place.
Um I know as a Byron fan, I get I get a lot of crap for being a Bayern fan of watching English Premier League, but I mean all Come on, guys.
The English Premier League is the best league in Europe and in the world, like let's not fool ourselves.
Alright, guys, that's all I got for you for today.
Thank you so much for tuning into kicking it here.
Live on SportsCastr on the rail route Network Take care, CIA.
