2/3 on Podcast Bets Bet on the opening Champions League week from Mark, Adrian and Miguel.

The guys were back with a bumper preview of Matchday 2 – with some tasty matchups.

If you don’t have time to listen to the podcast or you need a recap of the bets, they are all summarised below.

Best of luck if you’re having a bet!

Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

You rarely get one of the guys taking either side of a high Asian Handicap line.

However, Adrian feels all the ingredients are in place for a tough night on the road for Bayern Munich

Citing Copenhagen’s competitive home Champions League record, expect them to make a fist of their tie against Bayern.

Recommended Bet: FC COPENHAGEN +2.0/2.5 vs Bayern Munich (1.73)

Mark O’Haire’s Best Bet

Despite Union Berlin being favourites in this market, Mark fancies Braga to cause them problems.

He has them favoured in his longshots but is playing it safe with Both Teams To Score at 1.87.

Recommended Bet: Union vs Braga BTTS YES (1.87)

Miguel Delaney’s Best Bet

St. James’ Park welcomes Champions League football for the first time since the 2002/03 season.

Miguel is expecting Eddie Howe to set up his team very defensively and that could cause PSG problems in trying to break them down.

2.4 does seem a tad high, all things considered (and despite the phenomenal attacking talent on display!).
