Champions League Pick: Napoli

Eintracht Frankfurt +248 vs Tottenham Hotspur +108

Inter Milano +310 vs Barcelona -101 

  • When: Tuesday, October 4 at 3:00 pm ET

Soccer handicappers continue to give Inter the benefit of the doubt and Inter continues to disappoint. Losses to Udinese and AS Roma are the latest Inter let downs. 

Barcelona has won 4-of-5. The loss happened versus Bayern in a road match. Robert Lewandowski leads Barca to victory. 

Champions League Pick: Barcelona 

Liverpool O 3.5 -116 vs Rangers U 3.5 -110

  • When: Tuesday, October 4 at 3:00 pm ET

The Rangers shouldn’t win this match. But Liverpool struggled agianst Brighton, drawing 3-3. Pool figures to take this on the money line.

So playing the draw is tough. Still, the Rangers will keep this much closer than the spread. Pool’s defense is a mess. So Liverpool will try to outscore the Rangers. Under 3.5 doesn’t seem possible. Liverpool winning 3-2 is probable, which means this goes over the total. 

Champions League Pick: Over 3.5
