PSV Eindhoven picked up a win in their Champions League group stage opener, but will enter this week's match at CSKA Moscow as the underdogs on the soccer odds board. 

Odds Overview
CSKA Moscow is a firm favorite on the soccer odds board. The Russian outfit is quoted at -120 to win at all of the sportsbooks we've checked over, with PSV Eindhoven available for backing at +330. If you think a draw is the most likely result, that option can be found in the +260 to +275 range.

 

CSKA Moscow
The Horses are having quite the season already, especially when it comes to the Russian Premier League. They're in first place in the table and have already built up a five-point lead on Lokomotiv Moscow. CSKA has a +11 goal differential through their first 10 league matches.

It hasn't been the best of starts for the Russian side in the group stages of the Champions League, however, as they lost 1-0 to Wolfsburg away from home. They've since responded to go unbeaten over their last three matches, so we'll have to see what kind of frame of mind that puts them in for this home showdown with the Dutch outfit.

 

PSV Eindhoven
Affectionately known as the Peasants to some, PSV Eindhoven couldn't have asked for a much better start to their UCL campaign. They beat group favorites Manchester United 2-1 at home, giving them a great head start in the competitive group.

In terms of league play, the Peasants have been getting it done too; they're in third place with 14 points through seven matches and their +10 goal differential is second only to league leaders Ajax. Individually, Luuk de Jong has been the standout, scoring seven times in league play already.

 

Champions League Pick
We can expect another highly competitive Champions League encounter here on Wednesday, we ultimately see CSKA Moscow escaping with a win, earning these hugely important three points. So definetly add them your soccer pick collections.

In what's one of the most loaded groups in the competition, the Horses will know how important it'll be to get points on the board. Their great league form, along with the advantage of being home, should put them in a favorable situation to earn the outright victory.
