After taking over the top spot in the Premier League, the Red Devils are going to be high on confidence ahead with Woflsburg. Who should we favor with our soccer picks?

Odds Overview
As you'd expect, the Red Devils are favored in the -125 to -140 range to pick up all three points, which would be their first in Group B. Wolfsburg is a hefty +400 underdog on the board right now, with a draw available at a price approaching +275.

 

Manchester United
The Red Devils have built up quite a bit of steam ahead of Wednesday's showdown. They've won three in a row, topping Southampton, Ipswich Town (in the Capital One Cup) and Sunderland, and they can now be found atop the EPL with 16 points, one more than city rivals Manchester City.

More encouraging news? Captain Wayne Rooney has returned from injury and promptly found the back of the net, and having him near his top form will only mean continued success for Louis van Gaal's outfit.

 

Wolfsburg
Through seven league matches, the Wolves are in fourth place in the Bundesliga, behind Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke. They had an ideal start to their Champions League group stages, overcoming CSKA Moscow 1-0. 

Will Wolfsburg be able to mount any kind of legitimate challenge to the favored Red Devils this Wednesday? Only time will tell. Bas Dost has been a machine for the club so far, netting five league goals, and will be the focal point of the attack for the underdogs.

 

Champions League Pick
As well as the Red Devils have been playing, we're going to have to add them to our soccer picks for this week's Group B European action.

While it's true Wolfsburg have been more than holding their own in league play (and in the Champions League), this is as tough of a fixture as they're going to face all season. United seems to be finding their stride now and the return of Rooney is obviously a massive boost to the club. 

We're actually a little surprised the soccer odds aren't steeper, as we figured the Red Devils would be heavier favorites at Old Trafford. Nonetheless, we're not complaining, and we'll be rolling with United to win rather comfortably.

Predicted Final Score: Manchester United 2 Wolfsburg 0
