Chelsea is the strong favorite to qualify from Group G and we would be amazed if they didn’t fulfill the bookies’ expectations. Join us as we preview this Champions League group and deliver our soccer picks.

The big question in UEFA Champions League Group B this year season will probably be if Swiss Super League champs FC Basel can make a run at English Premier League entrant Liverpool for the second place in the group with defending European champions and perennial giants Real Madrid probably winning five of its six games in this stage and easily rolling to the Knockout Stage.

Before betting on the winners of Group A of the UEFA Champions League, you may be aware there are two teams which appear to be the best picks.

Most of the clubs in the Premier League have done pretty much what I expected them to do after three games. Chelsea are slightly better, Manchester United worse, but they have spent big. Tottenham look weak against the better sides, Liverpool are probably just off the pace, Arsenal miss leaders and so on.

Two powerhouses will be vying for top spot in this group in an intriguing tussle between sides who have spent millions to win the Champions League: Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

Let's get this out of the way first: Bayern are my tip to win the Champions League, despite their price. They have an great record over the last five years, with three final appearances, winning it twice, a semi final and a poor Round of 16 exit. Real Madrid are their chief opponents to lift the trophy, but Bayern look more balanced and Germany is on the crest of a footballing wave, in the much the same way Spain were when Barcelona dominated. They have bought some experience into the squad, with Pepe Reina and Xabi Alonso, while Mehdi Benatia is a superb acquisition from group opponents Roma.

I’m pretty pleased with most of my pre-season selections in the Premier League, but QPR have been the most disappointing side for me. I didn’t agree with most people doing soccer picks who had the London side to go back down to the Championship.

Three weeks is a long time in Premier League betting! Chelsea and Man City were virtually inseparable at the top of the market for who won win the title this season. Now three wins later and the (dark) Blues are odds on to lift the trophy for the first time since 2010. Manchester City have already lost a game too of course, they were unable to beat a hard-working, defensively organised Stoke City.

Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Galatasaray and Anderlecht make up an intriguing Group D where the bookmakers can’t separate the top two. That’s a bit unfair on the Gunners given their consistency in the Champions League compared to Dortmund’s two year acceleration into the European football stratosphere. They went from Group Stage departees in 2011/12, to beaten finalists and everyone’s favourite team in 2012/13 and then rather worryingly to a quarter final exit last season.

C stands for ‘Could be anyone’s Group’ in this case with Bayer Leverkusen, Benfica, Monica and Zenit St Petersburg battling it out. The ‘to qualify’ odds range from 8/11 (Leverkusen) to 7/4 (Zenit) so this has to be about the value. Let’s look at the teams in order of favouritism according to the bookmakers.
