The top overall favorite on the soccer odds board for this week's Champions League action? That would be Barcelona, who should have little trouble shredding BATE Borisov on Wednesday.

Odds Overview
The Catalans are quite rightly listed at anywhere from -1200 to -1400 to emerge victorious over BATE Borisov this week. Looking over the soccer odds, we see the visitors listed in the +1800 to +2000 range to win, with a draw priced at anywhere from +800 all the way up to +1400 at some sportsbooks. Make sure you keep checking back with SBR in order to get the best possible number you can on your preferred wager.


Whenever you lose arguably the best player on the planet, it's going to be tough, but Barcelona has more than enough talent to keep chuggling along and piling up the points. 

Right now, we find the Catalans tied with Real Madrid atop La Liga, although Cristiano Ronaldo and company have the edge because of a superior goal differential. In Europe, Barcelona holds a three-point cushion atop Group E, putting them in a very favorable position to advance on to the knockout rounds with the top seed.


BATE Borisov
BATE has dominated domestically, already having built up a 12-point lead with a +30 goal differential, and they've also managed to pull off a surprising victory in a very competitive Group E (over Roma).

It's going to be mighty tough for the Belarusian outfit to stay remotely competitive this week, however, against one of the best teams in the world.


Champions League Pick
We should be seeing a convincing win for Barcelona here on Wednesday. They've been in great form and will have the luxury of being at home against a vastly inferior opponent, knowing that a win would push them one step closer to locking up first place in the group.

So, with our soccer picks, we're going to be backing the Catalans, although we're going to need to get a little bit more creative since the odds are so large. We'll take Barca to win by at least two goals, which is available at a much friendlier asking price.

Champions League Soccer Pick: Barcelona 4 BATE Borisov 0 -- back Barcelona -2 (handicap) at 4/5 at Bet365.
