Liverpool may have already given up on the Premier League title
Liverpool, one of the favorites to take the Champions League, may have already given up on winning the English Premier League title.
After five EPL matches, Pool has a loss, 2 draws, and a win. The loss happened in Liverpool’s most recent match, a game versus Newcastle. Losing to Newcastle is a big deal.
It’s so bad that Liverpool is a point behind Manchester United, who had all sorts of problems to start the season, Brentford, and Newcastle on the EPL standings.
The Reds deciding to give up winning the Premier and instead concentrate on taking the Champions League is a real possibility. It will be tough to make up ground on Tottenham, Arsenal, and Man City.
Will the strategy lead to another great Champions League run? Maybe. If the odds stay the same, though, it’s impossible to back Liverpool to win the title. The team isn’t close to playing dominant soccer like it did last season.
Does Lewa make Barcelona an overlay?
Most consider Group C the group of death. Barcelona, Bayern, and Inter Milano play in C. But although beating Bayern and Inter won’t be easy, Barcelona might have the right mix of players to not only win their group but to also win the Champions League.
For Barca, everything starts with Robert Lewandowski. After 3 LaLiga Primera Division matches, Barcelona is 2 points behind Betis and Real.
Barca shows 2 wins and a draw. Lewa has 4 goals in 3 matches. So if the former Bayern star keeps this up, Barcelona will be close to impossible to handle during CL group play. At the odds, Barcelona is an overlay.
Bayern Munich comes down to earth
Bayern had dominated their Bundesliga matches. In their first, Bayern blasted 2021 Europa League winner Eintracht Frankfurt 6-1.
Then in their second, Munich rocked Wolfsburg 2-0. Bayern continued the scoring fest with a 7-0 win over Bochum in their third Bundesliga match.
But in their fourth, scorching Bayern fell down to earth. Monchengladbach forced a 1-1 draw.
The draw disappointed Bayern’s fans. But it isn’t a sign Munich won’t win the Champions League. Outside of Real and their +1100 odds, Bayern offers the best odds among the favorites to take the title.
If you liked Bayern before the Gladbach draw, you should still like them. Heading into the first group matches, Bayern Munich offers the fairest odds among the true contenders to win the Champions League.
