2022-23 Champions League – Group Stage: Must Bet Matchday 5 Games

Ajax Amsterdam +285 vs Liverpool -120 

  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 3:00 pm ET

Ajax has 3 wins and a couple of losses in their last 5. The home team in this has turned their form around and although they lost both CL matches to Napoli, Liverpool shouldn’t pose as much of a threat.

Pool has won 3-of-5. But Nottingham Forest, one of the worst teams in the Premier this season, upset the Reds 1-0 on Oct. 22. Ajax gets the nod.

Champions League Pick: Ajax Amsterdam 

Atletico Madrid -125 vs Bayer Leverkusen +340

  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 3:00 pm ET

Leverkusen has 3 losses, a win, and a draw in their last 5. Also, the win came against Schalke 04, which doesn’t impress much. 

Atletico has gotten it together. The 3 wins and 2 draws last 5 record is nice. What’s really nice is the last victory came against tough La Liga rival Betis. The home team prevails. 

Champions League Pick: Atletico Madrid 

Barcelona +132 vs Bayern Munich +179

  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 3:00 pm ET

Barcelona was not playing well but heading into this, it looks like Barca’s form is on the upswing. The home team is on a 2-match winning streak.

While Lewandowski’s squad is playing well, Bayern is playing great. Lewa’s former team is on a 4-match winning streak. Bayern beat those last 4 opponents a combined 16 goals to 4. Barca should be the chalk because this happens on their pitch. The odds on the road team makes them more than playable. 

Champions League Pick: Bayern Munich  

Eintracht Frankfurt +135 vs Marseille +204

  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 3:00 pm ET

Marseille has 2 wins and 3 losses in their last 5. The road squad in this is not playing well. 

The home team is. After a couple of losses, 1 was versus Premier League power Tottenham, Frankfurt has turned their form around, winning 3 straight. 

Marseille will play well, but Eintracht is on a roll. The odds difference isn’t enough to give the road team a look. 

Champions League Pick: Eintracht Frankfurt  

Napoli -1.5 -149 vs Rangers +1.5 +117

  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 3:00 pm ET

Both squads are in decent form, but 1 team is playing like a Champions League winner. Napoli is on an 11-match winning streak. 

The home chalk is playing close to unbeatable soccer. The Rangers are playing okay against teams that aren’t close to Napoli’s level. The home team should have no trouble covering the spread.

Champions League Pick: Napoli -1.5 

Tottenham Hotspur -1.5 +120 vs Sporting CP +1.5 -152

  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 3:00 pm ET

This looks like a match between teams going in opposite directions. Sporting CP won their last match, but before the victory, the Portuguese Liga squad had lost 3-of-4.

Tottenham has lost 2 straight after a 3-match winning streak. Tottenham isn’t playing well, but the Hotspur know they must beat Sporting CP by at least 2 goals to have any shot of winning the aggregate. 

Champions League Pick: Tottenham -1.5
