    A two-week international break is just on the other side of the weekend, but first the world's top teams have important work to do in league play. There are several key early-season matchups on tap, but the Arsenal vs. Manchester City battle Sunday will be the star of the show. City have won five of the past six English Premier League titles, but it looked like the Gunners could end their dominant run last season. City rallied to win the EPL by five points, but Arsenal have designs on making another run. In France's Ligue 1, leaders Monaco host third-place Reims on Saturday at 3 p.m. ET, and in Spain's La Liga, fifth-place Real Socidead visit fourth-place Atletico Madrid on Sunday at 11:30 a.m.            

    The Gunners (5-2-0) are one point behind Man City (6-0-1) in the English Premier League table heading into Sunday's 11:30 a.m. ET match at Emirates Stadium. City are +135 road favorites in the latest Arsenal vs. Manchester City odds, with the Gunners +190 underdogs and a draw priced at +240.

    The weekend's world football slate offers nearly unlimited opportunities for bettors, and the paydays can be huge if you combine your favorite picks into a parlay. Before you make any soccer picks or parlays, you really have to see what soccer expert Jim Holliman has to say.

    Holliman has been a writer and editor for nearly 25 years and grew up with soccer in his blood. He played competitively through high school and has been following the game closely since the 1970's heyday of the North American Soccer League. His interest has expanded worldwide, and his betting approach is centered on crunching the numbers, but he sees the whole field and relies on his instinct.

    Since the 2022 World Cup, Holliman has been profitable across multiple leagues, including the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Bundesliga. He is 25-14 -- bringing a profit of $1,187 for $100 bettors -- on his Champions League predictions since the start of last season. He nailed last week's parlay at almost 9-1 and hit two paying almost 12-1 in 14 weeks of this article in 2022-23.

    Now, Holliman has scoured the soccer schedules for Oct. 7-9 and has found value in four best bets. If you combine these picks into a parlay, you could earn a payout of almost 10-1! The first matchup in the parlay doesn't start until Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ET, so there is plenty of time for you to make your soccer picks.

    We can tell you that one pick Holliman loves is the Man City vs. Arsenal showdown to go Over 2.5 Goals (-125). The expert knows these defenses are stout, but the Gunners play a more open game at home. City have conceded at least once goal in five of six overall road matches, so a winner should need to score at least twice. 

    Holliman has three other plays in his parlay that would pay almost 10-1, including two other confident plays on goal totals. If you combine these picks into a four-leg parlay, you can cash in HUGE! You ABSOLUTELY need to see the expert's predictions before you lock in any soccer picks or parlays of your own.

    So which teams are MUST-BACKS on this weekend's soccer schedule? And which over/unders should you be backing as part of a parlay that would pay almost 10-1? ... Join SportsLine right now to find out which picks you should be all over this weekend, all from the soccer expert who hit last week's four-leg parlay at almost 9-1!
