UEFA Champions League Best Bets. Matchday 1 is now over and it is time for the Champions League Matchday 2. There will be some good games on Thursday and there are also some good bets. Here are the Best Bets for the UEFA Champions League Matchday 2
FC BARCELONA -200 over Olympique Lyonnaise
FC Barcelona should open up their 2007-2008 Champions League campaign in style at home against Lyonnaise. Lyonnaise is not a bad team, but the firepower than Barcelona brings can’t be matched by many teams. If you are feeling good about Barcelona you can even get them minus one goal for better odds.
GLASGOW RANGERS -140 over VfB Stuttgart
I’m a little iffy on this pick after what I saw Celtic do on the first matchday of the Champions League but I will stick with my pick. Stuttgart will be traveling to the north and the Rangers should be able to squeeze out a win here.
Inter Milan +105 over FENERBACHE
Inter Milan will be on the road traveling to play Fenerbache on Thursday. Inter Milan should be able to pull out the win in this game. This should be a very tight game until the end where I see Inter pulling out a late goal to win the game.
PSV EINDHOVEN -115 over CSKA Moscow
PSV Eindhoven was very good in this tournament last year and CSKA Moscow was mediocre. I think that Eindhoven has a great chance to win this game at home and if they can play like they did last year against Arsenal, they can beat most teams in this league.
ARSENAL +115 over Sevilla FC
This will probably be one of the best games of the first week of Champions League play. Sevilla has to travel to London to face the Gunners at Emirates Stadium. Arsenal is very, very good at home and they have been playing very well this season so far. I will take the home team with the plus money.
AS ROMA -1 (-150) over Dynamo Kiev
Dynamo Kiev was in this tournament last year and they didn’t put up much of a fight and I don’t see things changing for tomorrow. Dynamo Kiev is on the road and should lose by at least 2 goals to a very good AS Roma team.
SLAVIA PRAGUE/Steaua Bucharest draw +220
I don’t really see either one of these teams separating themselves from the other on Thursday. Both teams are somewhat similar and this should be a 1-1 or 0-0 tie when all is said and done.
Manchester United -1/2 (+105) over SPORTING
Manchester United -1/2 a goal is at better odds than Manchester to win the match. This is some easy free money. Manchester United should be able to go into Sporting and win on the road, but a draw is not out of the question, especially with Chelsea looming on the horizon for Manchester United this weekend.
With all the picks made it is time for me to remind you that these are merely the best plays on the board as I see them and they are not guaranteed winners, nothing is guaranteed.
