18-15-2 on Soccer since World Cup up 6.55 units
Champions league group stage is here.
Tottenham pk for 2 units. Neither of these teams are in the best form as Inter just lost to Parma while Tottenham just lost to Watford and Liverpool. The Nerazzurri do well at home against English competition historically, but I believe in this Tottenham squad. Eriksen looked solid over the international break (assist vs Liverpool too) and I expect him to pull the strings here for Kane and others. Nainggolan and Perisic are two of my favorite players in Fifa and in real life, but Inter does not have much else going on. I think the Spurs attack can do enough to Inter’s backline to draw or win this game.
Atletico Madrid at -128 for 4 units. Monaco does not have a win in their last 4 matches and now Atletico comes to town. Antoine Griezmann and Diego Simeone will come out firing this group stage after not getting past this stage last season. Atletico did win the Europa League, but Madrid wants more. Falcao and Monaco are no slouches, but Atletico’s defense turns it up a notch here.
PSG +.5 at -123 for 3 units. PSG to win or draw? I will bite. Liverpool have been one of the best teams in Europe over the past year, but I think Cavani, Di Maria, Verratti, Draxler, Neymar, Mbappe, and Thiago Silva are getting disrespected with this line. PSG are built for Champions league and I think they at least get a draw out of their trip to Anfield. Salah and Mane have been in arguably the best form in the world over the past 9 months, but this will be a close exciting game. PSG have scored 3 or more goals in 5 consecutive matches.
Dortmund at -122 for 2 units. Dortmund looked great vs Frankfurt and I expect that to carry over here. Reus, Dahoud, and Wolf had some solid chemistry in that game. Club Brugge have had a great start to their season, but the competition ramps up tremendously here. Dortmund, similarly to Atletico, failed to advance past this stage last season and they will want to get off to a great start here. Just a little extra motivation. Jadon Sancho has two assists in 3 games for Dortmund domestically. Brugge have scored first in 7 of their last 8 games, so if Dortmund can score first, Brugge will be uncomfortable.
