2022-23 UCL – Group Stage: Must Bet Matchday 3 Games

RB Leipzig -182 vs Celtic +460

  • When: Wednesday, October 5 at 12:45 pm ET

The last time Celtic took on a UEFA club from a top team, they lost by 3 goals. But the loss happened versus Real Madrid. RB Leipzig is not Real Madrid.

Leipzig can win this. There are two reasons to go against the home chalk, though. First, RBL heads into this after trouncing Bochum 4-0. Leipzig doesn’t often put together 2 impressive victories in a row. Second, Celtic’s form may have turned around with the 2-1 victory over Motherwell in their last. 

Champions League Pick: Celtic 

Benfica +320 vs Paris Saint-Germain -137 

  • When: Wednesday, October 5 at 3:00 pm ET

On paper, Paris Saint-Germain rocks Benfica. The home team welcomes PSG after drawing versus Guimaraes in their last. 

But although Paris is the team to beat, Benfica shows excellent form before the draw. No doubt, the home squad was thinking of this match while playing their last. Benfica can pull off the upset victory. 

Champions League Pick: Benfica  

Chelsea -136 vs AC Milan +360

  • When: Wednesday, October 5 at 3:00 pm ET

Chelsea has yet to get on track this season. The Blues show a couple of wins, a couple of losses, and a draw in their last 5. 

AC Milan has won 3-of-4. Milan’s lone loss in the last 5 happened in a match versus Serie A standings leader Napoli. If the odds difference was tighter, Chelsea might be a play. But at +360, AC is an overlay. 

Champions League Pick: AC Milan

Juventus -1.5 -123 vs Maccabi Haifa +1.5 -102 

  • When: Wednesday, October 5 at 3:00 pm ET

Juventus had been playing terrible soccer. It got so bad, Juve lost to Monza, a team that often plays out of Serie B.

The home chalk in this turned it around in their last, blasting rival Bologna 3-0. Maccabi Haifa is a solid club, but Juventus may have turned the corner. Juve can cover the handicap.  

Champions League Pick: Juventus -1.5 

Real Madrid O 3.5 -103 vs Shakhtar Donetsk U 3.5 -121

  • When: Wednesday, October 5 at 3:00 pm ET

Both these clubs can score. Shakhtar dropped 4 onto RB Leipzig in a Champions League win. On Sep. 11, Real beat Mallorca 4-1.

There’s no guarantee each team will score a ton of goals, though. Still, Real takes advantage of clubs that aren’t on their level. Real is good for 3 while Shakhtar should be good for at least 1. 

Champions League Pick: Over 3.5 

Sevilla +145 vs Borussia Dortmund +183

  • When: Wednesday, October 5 at 3:00 pm ET

Both teams are in awful form. Sevilla heads into this after an 0-2 home loss against Atletico.

Dortmund travels to Spain after losing 3-2 against Cologne in their last. Which teams steps it up for the win? Dortmund has played great soccer in their last 5, but their other 2 losses, road losses to Man City and Leipzig, make sense. The Bundesliga team gets the nod. 

Champions League Pick: Borussia Dortmund
