• Barca favourites in Rome
• Olympiakos underdogs against Bayern
• Few goals expected at Valencia v Zenit
(City lost to Juventus at home while United lost to PSV in Eindhoven) by 2-1, even though the fact that EU gambling news predicted both teams to be able to claim a victory against their opponents. The odds might get upset on Wednesday too, as great matches are ahead of punters!
Bet on Roma v Barcelona at Bet365 for the best available odds
Placing a bet on Roma v Barcelona could be a good choice as the Catalan side are far more superior to their opponent and hence they are expected to win the match. The odds for Luis Enrique’s men are 1.61 (61/100) which is relatively high when it comes to Barca. However, both teams are in good form. Wagering on both teams to score at least 1 goal for 1.83 (83/100) odds could also work out well as many goals are predicted for this encounter.
Lionel Messi scored his first goal in the season during the Blaugrana’s last La Liga match against Atlético de Madrid. Internet betting sites expect him to continue making goals for his team. Bet365 would be willing to pay 1.83 (83/100) if the Argentinian put the ball in the net during the game, which seems very probable if we check out how many goals he usually scores.
Bayern are clear favourites against Olympiakos but home team can cause surprise
Bayern Munich will make a trip to Greece to face Olympiakos. Pep Guardiola’s men are believed to be able to win in an easy game against the Greek side. This is proven by the odds as well, which are 1.40 (4/10) for Bayern, while those for Olympiakos or the draw are 9.00 (8/1) and 5.00 (4/1) respectively.
The match should bring lots of goals as Bayern are full of top class attacking players including the likes of Müller, Lewandowski and the newly acquired Douglas Costa. The odds for at least 3 goals to be scored during the 90 minutes are 1.80 (4/5) which could be worth wagering on as the Greek side also likes an attacking style of football as they scored 8 goals in their first 3 league games. However, of course, no Bayern Munich-like teams participate in the Greek league…
Betting on Valencia v Zenit match could be beneficial for punters
Valencia will host Zenit St Petersburg in a thrilling clash. The Spanish team are still unbeaten in the league, however they tied 2 of their 3 matches. The Russian side won 4 of their first 4 encounters in the league, however they have been in declining form ever since. They lost 2 out of their last 4 matches, in addition, they have been unable to win their last 2 encounters.
According to these pieces of information, online sportsbooks in the EU believe that the Spanish team has more chances of collecting the 3 points – Valencia’s odds are 1.83 (83/100) while those for Zenit are 5.00 (4/1). As both teams have a solid defence, the 1.85 (17/20) odds at Bet365 for at most 2 goals being scored during the game sounds pretty exciting!
