Top UCL Games to Watch and Bet On Matchday 5 (Nov. 24th)

Ajax Amsterdam -227 vs Besiktas Istanbul +500 

  • When: Wednesday, Nov. 24

Besiktas has a single victory and 4 losses in their last 5. Things wouldn’t be so dire against Ajax if not for the fact 3-of-4 losses happened versus Turkish Super Lig opponents.

Once again, Ajax is one of the best teams in the Dutch Eredivisie. The team from Amsterdam shows 3 wins and a couple of draws in their last 5. On Nov. 3, Ajax dusted Dortmund 3-1. The odds make the road team an overlay. 

Champions League Pick: Ajax Amsterdam  

RB Leipzig +102 vs Club Brugge +230

  • When: Wednesday, Nov. 24

If Leipzig hopes to turn things around, they  must dominate Club Brugge. RB, though, might believe the chances of turning things around are almost nil, which could lead to an underwhelming performance. 

Man City dominted Club Brugge on Nov. 3. Brugge got a goal, though, which means even though CB had no shot of winning, they kept fighting. The Belgian First Division A squad should be more motivated than the road team. 

Not only that, but Leipzig heads into this after an upset loss to Hoffenheim. Brugge has a real shot of winning this on the moneyline. 

Champions League Pick: Club Brugge    

Real Madrid -1 ½ (-156) vs Sheriff Tiraspol +1 ½ (+118)

  • When: Wednesday, Nov. 24

Real beat Tiraspol 2-1 in the first head-to-head. Since then, Sheriff has lost to Inter Milano twice by the same score, 3-1. 

The road favorite could win this by more than a goal, but Real is in a good position to move to the knockout stage and this happens on Sheriff Tiraspol’s pitch. Also, RM may have blown through their goal limit in the 4-1 beating they handed Granada on Nov. 21. We’ll take the goal and a half at above even money. 

Champions League Pick: Sheriff Tiraspol

Borussia Dortmund +105 vs Sporting Lisbon +170

  • When: Wednesday, Nov. 24

The odds on Dortmund make them a serious underlay. There’s a real question as to whether Borussia is a better team than Sporting Lisbon.

The home team hasn’t lost since a depressing 1-5 performance versus Ajax on Sep. 15. Lisbon could push the winning streak to 10 with a victory. Not only that, but Dortmund beat Sporting Lisbon by a single goal in the first CL match. 

FC Porto made the Champions League semis last season. So we shouldn’t discount Lisbon’s ability to upset teams like Dortmund. 

Champions League Pick: Sporting Lisbon 

AC Milan +400 vs Atletico Madrid -158

  • When: Wednesday, Nov. 24

One of the top soccer matches on Wednesday pits AC Milan against Atletico Madrid. The odds imply a must bigger home pitch advantage for Atletico than they probably have. 

AC heads into this after a loss, and Atletico did beat the road team 2-1 in the first head-to-head. But the odds make the road team an overlay. AC Milan is the pick. 

Champions League Pick: AC Milan
