Wednesday Champions League Picks
1u - Salzburg to win @ -189
- Salzburg have won all 4 games in the league this season
Salzburg are a short price but they feel like a lock here. They've won all 4 of their league games so far this season, scoring 17 goals in the process. This Lokomotiv team aren't anything special and are only 4th in their domestic league. Back in Russia they've only won 6 of 11 league games, with only 12 goals scored. They're pedestrian and Salzburg can take advantage.
1u - Bayern Munich -1 @ +140
- Atletico have conceded 7 goals in their 4 La Liga games this season
We know how good Bayern are in front of goal, so let's park that for now. Let's talk about Atletico Madrid. When you think about Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid you think of low-scoring, tough tackling, tense games. They're known to be solid at the back but the reality is far from that.
In four league games this year they've coughed up 7 goals, they simply can't afford to do that against Europe's best team. Take the handicap before the sportsbooks catch up that Atletico aren't the defensive titans they used to be.
1u - Man City -1 @ -130
- Man City have scored 7 goals in 4 Premier League games this season
Pep won't be taking this competition lightly, especially after last season's meltdown against Lyon. Put simply, City are too good for Porto. Porto are giving up 1.5 goals per game domestically and are far from secure at the back. Man City's attack is too strong for them and the addition of Dias at the back really looks to have helped shore up a dodgy backline for City.
1u - Lukaku to score anytime @ -108
- Romelu Lukaku has 4 goals in 4 games so far this season
He ended his Manchester United career as a laughing stock but has been reborn in Milan. Last season he managed 34 goals and confirmed his status as one of Europe's best goalscorers, even if there are some limitations to his play. He's started well this season and I'm backing him to continue with another goal for Inter in this game.
