35-25-5 on Soccer since World Cup up 22.73 units
Champions League was awesome yesterday. The highlights were Neymar’s hat-trick (including two free kick goals) and this screaming volley by Rakitic. On to Europa…
Sevilla at -105 for 5 units. Sevilla are the hottest team in Europe right now. Sevilla has scored 17 goals in their last 4 games, which included a 3-0 win against Real Madrid. This will be Krasnodar and Sevilla’s first ever meeting. Krasnodar have been doing well in Russia, as they just beat Zenit 3-0. Quincy Promes just transferred from Russia to Sevilla and enjoyed playing Krasnodar in his time there (4 goals in 8 games). Ben Yedder and Banega both had two goals in the first group game for Sevilla. Ben Yedder is 6th and Andre Silva is 1st in La Liga in goals scored, not Messi, Suarez, Bale, Aspas, or Benzema. Krasnodar, even at home, won’t be able to keep up with Sevilla’s offense.
Arsenal at -250 for 4 units. Arsenal have won 7 in a row. They will want to win this game to essentially secure the group early on. Aubameyang had two goals last time out in this competition. Qarabag have only won one game at home against teams from the better leagues in the group stage. Arsenal are on a 25 year European trophy drought. They take one more step towards ending that today.
Besiktas pk/-.5 at +102 for 2 units. Besiktas just have more talent than Malmo. Besiktas has not lost a game since August 28th. The Istanbul club has scored first in each of their last 6 matches. Ryan Babel, Pepe, Quaresma, Negredo, Vagner Love, Gonul, and Hutchinson should show enough class to get a win here.
