But those look tough betting contests and our picks come away from the Wednesday UCL glamour list.
Inter Milan to beat Borussia Monchengladbach – Money Line (-175)
Antonio Conte has a job on his hands to get his Inter Milan team back on track after the pain of losing to local rivals AC Milan but they at least face a drop down in class for this clash with German visitors Borussia Monchengladbach.
Inter came up against the legend that is Zlatan Ibrahimovic in top form on Saturday but Conte has his own attacking weapon in the form of Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian beast was in great form for his country in the Nations League and has been Inter’s best player this season too. He should prove too good for a Gladbach side making their debut in the UCL.
Marseille to beat Olympiakos – Money Line (+215)
There are a lot of mismatches in the UCL group stages and plenty of teams who should be locks that are priced accordingly. However, if you want a dog to back look at Marseille for the upset on the road at Olympiakos.
The Greek hosts continue to trade their best players – Daniel Podence was one of the latest who headed to England to sign for Wolves earlier this year – and Marseille are a team on the up under the coaching of Andre Villas-Boas.
At one stage AVB was seen as the heir apparent to Jose Mourinho, only to be sacked by Chelsea and Tottenham, but he is restoring his reputation in France.
Marseille have beaten Paris St-Germain this season and tied 1-1 against Lille and Lyon which suggests they can go close against Olympiakos.
Over 2.5 goals in Ajax vs. Liverpool (-235)
Liverpool fans are in tears. Virgil van Dijk, the rock of their defense and a key part of their championship winning side, has suffered a serious knee injury which means the big Dutchman will spend several months on the sidelines.
Without him Liverpool could well be shaky. Although they were shaky with him this season anyway, conceding three times to Leeds and seven against Aston Villa.
Luckily for Liverpool, they are blessed on offense and Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane should be able to keep the scoreboard ticking over in Amsterdam.
Man City-Man City halftime/fulltime double result prop bet (-139)
Porto don’t like their trips to England and they should have more misery when heading to Manchester to take on the might of Pep Guardiola’s City.
No matter the manager or players Porto crumble in England. They have played 19, won zero and lost 16 with ten goals scored and 50 conceded.
More recently it is six losses in seven and the best bet is to take Manchester City in the prop market to be leading at halftime before going on to win.
