A quickfire summary of what our Champions League podcast team are fancying this week!
Sometimes the most obvious bet is the best one
That’s the theme of this week’s show as Mark O’Haire, and Jonathan Wilson struggle to see how the underdogs of Benfica, Villarreal, Atlético and Real Madrid gain much traction this week.
That being said, the lads have still come up with three odds against selections this week ⬇️
Mark O’Haire & Jonathan Wilson’s Best Bet
Mark’s on the money stat regards Bayern’s success against Benfica resonated with me, and it’s hard not to envision the Reds having similar success in this tie.
The lads are tag-teaming it this week for their best bet with this selection!
Recommended Bet – Liverpool to beat Benfica & under 4.5 goals (2.02)
Man City vs Atlético
The Guardiola vs Simeone plotline will be played out to death this week, but narratives aside, we all fancy Pep’s side to prevail just about:
Recommended Bet – City to beat Atlético & under 3.5 goals (2.16)
Chelsea vs Real Madrid
The Blues’ 4-1 reversal at home to Brentford on Saturday reminded me of their blowout loss to West Brom last year – no need to panic is the general theme on this one, and the lads like Tuchel’s side to get the job done on Wednesday night:
Recommended Bet – Chelsea -0.0/0.5 (1.86)
Villarreal vs Bayern
Mark made a strong case for a Bayern win and both teams to score (3.3), but I’m a bit more comfortable with Jonathan’s angle here:
Recommended Bet – Bayern to beat Villarreal & under 4.5 goals (2.02)
