UEFA Champions League Group Stage Matchday 5 Games Betting Analysis and Picks

SC Salzburg +350 vs Chelsea -134 

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 12:45 pm ET

Home squad Salzburg is a big underdog versus Premier League team Chelsea. Based on form, the odds don’t make much sense. Salzburg has won 3 with a  couple of draws.

Yes, Chelsea is the better team, but the Blues have drawn in their last 2. This match happens on Salzburg’s pitch. The home team offers odds that make them more than playable. 

Champions League Pick: SC Salzburg  

Benfica -102 vs Juventus +275 

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 3:00 pm ET

Benfica takes on Juventus in what should be one of Tuesday’s most competitive matches. Juve heads into the game on a 2-match winning streak. On Oct. 15, Juve beat Torino 1-0 then on Oct. 21, Juve beat Empoli 4-0.

Benfica has won 3-of-5 with a couple of draws. The Portuguese Liga squad beat Juve 2-1 on the road in the first leg. There’s no reason to believe a different outcome happens on Tuesday.  

Champions League Pick: Benfica  

Borussia Dortmund +380 vs Manchester City -160 

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 3:00 pm ET

Dortmund has won 2 straight with a loss and a couple of draws. Man City has won 3-of-5 with a draw and a loss, which means this match should be much closer than many believe.

Not only that, but in the first leg, Dortmund stood up to the Sky Blues. The home team in this fell by a single goal in a 2-1 game. Borussia shouldn’t win but the odds make the Citizens unplayable and this doesn’t feel like a draw. 

Champions League Pick: Borussia Dortmund  

Dinamo Zagreb +330 vs AC Milan -123 

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 3:00 pm ET

Zagreb has lost 2-of-3 with the other match being a draw. Although that doesn’t sound good, we can’t write off Dinamo because of their recent form.

The home team in this plays in the Champions League and that’s it. So the two losses happened on the road against AC Milan and Salzburg. Milan has won 3-of-4 and dusted Zagreb 3-1 in the first leg. Expect a closer match. So close that Zagreb forces a draw. 

Champions League Pick: Draw 

Paris Saint-Germain -2.5 -128 vs Maccabi Haifa +2.5 -128  

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 3:00 pm ET

Paris Saint-Germain is a solid club. They should handle Maccabi Haifa, but we shouldn’t think for a moment that Haifa can’t keep this within the spread.

Maccabi is on a 3-match winning streak. 1 of the wins includes upsetting Juventus 2-0. The 3-1 loss to Juve in the first leg versus that rival wasn’t great. However, it was only a 2 goal loss. So Maccabi gets the nod. 

Champions League Pick: Maccabi Haifa +2.5 

RB Leipzig +149 vs Real Madrid +177 

  • When: Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 3:00 pm ET

Real has won 4-of-5. The road team in this is on fire. But before dumping on Real, realize that RB Leipzig has turned it around.

Leipzig has won 3-of-5 with a  couple of draws. RBL took it to Celtic 2-0 in their last Champions League match, which might be the reason El Blanco is an underdog to win this. The home team can take the victory. But let’s be frank, when was the last time we could bet Real at +177 odds? El Blanco gets the nod. 

Champions League Pick: Real Madrid
