PSG vs. Bayern Munich
2u - Bayern Munich to win @ +110
- Bayern have won their past 10 Champions League games
Both semifinals are now in the books and in truth they were both quite boring games, with the winners being clearly superior from the first minute.
Bayern Munich have been unbelievable this season since Hansi Flick took over and they have been my favorite for this tournament since it restarted, and that hasn't changed. They have nearly everything. Robert Lewandowski is the best 9 in world soccer, Thomas Muller is a unique and integral key to the team, Thiago and Leon Goretzka are both able of creating play and finding holes, whilst Alphonso Davies has become one of the world's best fullbacks. They should win this game and anything over even money is good value in my book, and I'd back this before the odds shift.
1u - PSG/Bayern @ +2000
You'll notice one thing I didn't praise was their centrebacks and Jerome Boeteng has looked like an achilles heel whith Bayern's high press. Lyon could have scored twice early on, before Bayern opened the scoring in the semfinal, but they fluffed their lines.
PSG, with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, would not let those chances slip. They also have real pace which can hurt Bayern Munich. Bayern won't change their style of play and will continue to push from the first whistle. That's going to leave some real holes which can be exploited.
I'm almost certain that PSG score in this game and there's a high chance it's the first goal if Bayern play so loose at the back. That said, I don't think they're good enough to keep Bayern at bay, so I think 20/1 that the Parisians lead at halftime, lose at fulltime, is good value.
0.5u - Same Game Parlay (PSG/Bayern, Mbappe first goal, Lewandowski anytime goal) @ +9445
It's the Champions League final so I'm going to go for something special here. At 94/1 I like this parlay, and it follows my predictions elsewhere. Mbappe gets an early goal to help PSG lead at halftime, before Bayern comeback in the second half and win, which would almost certainly involve Lewandwoski scoring. Let's eat!
Bayern are favorites at +110, with PSG at +230, with the sportsbooks expecting a close game. The draw is +310. The books are expecting some goals with Over 2.5 incredibly short at -265.
Robert Lewandowski is most likely to score first, at +340, with Mbappe the shortest of PSG players at +525.
