Tuesday Champions League Picks
1u - Monchengladbach to win and Both teams to score @ +280
- Gladbach have conceded at least 2 goals in their past 3 Champions League games
Gladbach are a good team, they sit 5th in the Bundesliga and only four points off Bayern Munich who sit at the head of the table. As good as they are, they do give away goals and have conceded 2 goals in each of their past 2 Champions League games, albeit against Real Madrid and Inter Milan, traditionally big teams. They'll have enough to beat Shakhtar here and at +130 they're a great price to win. I'm looking for a big price though and I'm taking them to win but both teams to score.
1u - Ajax -1 @ +170
- FC Midtjylland have conceded 6 goals in their 2 group games so far
This price is mindblowing. Ajax are only averaging 1 goal per game in the Champions League, but they've faced Atalanta and Liverpool, two teams who are far superior to the Danes they face here. In their domestic league they've scored 29 goals in 7 games, and even if 13 were in one game, that's still impressive. A -1 handicap should be considerably shorter odds than this and I love this bet.
1u - Both Teams To Score - No @ +235
- Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in their past 3 Champions League games
Atlanta and Liverpool are two of Europe's most entertaining teams but what do we think about when we think of these teams? Goals. A smart rule in betting is to zig when others zag and that's what we're doing here. The odds of both teams to score is -278 which is incredibly short, implying a probability of 73.5% that it happens. Liverpool have been good at keeping clean sheets in Europe and we have to back BTTS No when the odds are so lopsided.
1u - Inter Milan @ +290
- Real Madrid have conceded 2+ goals in their last 4 Champions League games
Real Madrid aren't what they used to be and they've struggled recently. Playing poorly and giving away a lot of goals. This game sees them welcome Inter Milan and Lukaku to Madrid and keeping out one of Europe's on form strikers will be very difficult. I'm not super confident on Inter here but at nearly 3/1 the odds are very appealing against this inconsistent Real Madrid team.
