Over/Under Pick: Over 2½ (-105)

AC Milan scored at least two goals in five of their last six road matches and twice in their last game of the UEFA Champions League group stage, defeating Newcastle 2-1. Let’s be brutally honest, Newcastle is way better than Empoli. Therefore, you can expect the total to go over, even if Empoli doesn’t score.

Handicap Pick: AC Milan -½ (-122)

This is a no-brainer since AC Milan -½ means that they just need to win the game for you to cash in. As previously mentioned, Empoli is winless since mid-November. On the other hand, AC Milan is highly motivated after crushing Cagliari 4-1 in the Round of 16 of the Coppa Italia on Jan. 2. In addition, the handicap is offering a better price than the moneyline, that’s why it’s the best option to include in your soccer parlays for Jan. 7.

Player Prop Pick: Rafael Leao Score or Assist (+100)

Olivier Giroud is AC Milan’s top scorer with eight goals and leads the team in assists with five. Of course, the Frenchman is a solid bet, but the price he’s offering in the sportsbook to score or assist is kind of high (-143). That’s why my recommendation is to wager on Rafael Leao, who’s offering a +100 price. Leao has scored three goals and has assisted his teammates four times. The Portuguese is extremely fast and strong, especially for a winger.
