Bayern Munich has been on an insanely good run of form, but will the German giants be able to notch another victory at Arsenal this week? Our soccer odds preview can be found inside.

Odds Overview
It's a testament to how good Bayern Munich is to see the Gunners as such clear-cut underdogs on the soccer odds board for Tuesday's Champions League, despite them being the home team.

At time of writing, Arsenal was at anywhere from +275 to +300 to win, Bayern was listed at -105 or so, and a draw was available at +275.


Following a very disappointing 3-2 home loss to Olympiakos in their most recent Champions League match, the Gunners have responded in positive fashion, earning consecutive 3-0 Premier League victories over Manchester United at home and then Watford away.

In Europe, though, Arsenal couldn't have gotten off to a worse start, as they've lost each of their first two matches and now have to take on group favorites. A positive result is practically a necessity for Arsene Wenger's group on Tuesday.

Bayern Munich
We've marveled over how good the Bavarians are countless times before, but there's a reason why. This team is that good. Ahead of this week's trip to London, Bayern has won eight straight matches across all competitions, and they've already built up a seven-point lead in the Bundesliga.

The Bavarians have also won both of their first two group stage matches in the UCL, taking care of Olympiakos 3-0 away from home before crushing Dinamo Zagreb 5-0 at home. 


Champions League Pick
What a match this should be. Bayern has been playing amazingly well, and it's not like the Gunners have been slouches either, winning each of their last two matches very comfortably, including that dominant triumph over United.

It's sure to be a highly competitive match, but in the end, we're taking our soccer pick with the German outfit here. Simply put, they're arguably the best team in the world right now, and their sheer quality and European experience should give them the edge at the Emirates.

Predicted Final Score: Arsenal 1  Bayern Munich 2
