The Champions League is up and running and your Humble Handicapper has picked out a dead cert to kick things off. Why not win some money with him as you watch Bayern Munich take on CSKA Moscow?
<p style="text-align:center"><em>Check out our report on <a target="_blank" title="Free Soccer Picks: Champions League 2014 Futures Betting" href="/soccer/free-picks/free-soccer-picks-champions-league-2014-futures-betting-a-31619/">2013-14 Champions League Betting Futures</a>!</em></p> <p><span style="font-size:1em">Everyone and his dog know that Bayern Munich are the top dog in Champions League kennel. No greater authority than your Humble Handicapper<span style="font-size:small">®</span> has already let it be known that <a href="/soccer/free-picks/soccer-picks-champions-league-group-d-odds-predictions-a-33279/" title="Soccer Picks: Champions League Group D Odds &amp; Predictions" target="_blank">Bayern Munich are the team to beat in this group</a>, as the bookies have them at 4/1 favourites to win the tournament</span></p> <p><span style="font-size:1em">By comparison, CSKA Moscow come in at 150/1 to win the Champions League. They only come out ahead of Group D’s dog dinner Viktoria Plezen who are massive 1500/1 long shots in the <a target="_blank" title="Free Soccer Picks" href="/soccer/">soccer betting</a> odds (a bet for lunatics and no-one else.)</span></p> <p><strong style="font-size:1em">Enough with the canine metaphors…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?</strong></p> <p>Picking the winner in this match won’t make you rich. Bayern Munich are <a href=";book=bet365inarticle" title="Bet Champions League soccer at!" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">1/5 with Bet365</a> while Moscow are 12/1. That's big money for a Moscow win, but there are big odds on flying pigs out there as well, if you want to make Bookie Bob richer. Still, if you still want a wild bet don’t go any crazier than a draw at 6/1; however, your Humble Handicapper can only see one winner in this match and that’s the home side.</p> <p><span style="font-size:1em">[gameodds]8/244339/?r3=349-43-192-19-999997-118-238-227/us&amp;r-1=349-43-192/us[/gameodds]</span></p> <p><strong style="font-size:1em">A Game of Two Halves</strong></p> <p><img id="ctl00_head_ArticleAdministrator_picturePreview_imgSelectedPicture" alt="Image preview" class="imgSelectedPicture article-image" src="" style="font-size:1em" />It’s no surprise that the bookies fancy Bayern winning both halves, offered up at 4/9. The game being drawn on the 45' and the home side coming out on top at the 90' is at 3/1; Moscow winning any half (FYI just the first one, before Bayern triumph) is at a massive 25/1 with Bet Victor, while them winning the game (by doing the do both sides of the break) runs as high as 30/1.</p> <p>Basically, in case you haven’t noticed, Bayern are going to win this game.</p> <p>Bayern are still 3/5 to win the group while Moscow are 20/1. Crunching those numbers tells me that Moscow will finish third in Group D and a damn poor second in this match.</p> <p>The bookies fancy Bayern winning 5-0 at 14/1 <a target="_blank" title="Betting ODds" href="/betting-odds/soccer/">soccer odds</a> before they fancy Moscow winning at any score. The lowest correct score odds that see Moscow come out on top are for a 1-2 result, offered at 33/1.</p> <p>It looks like the home side will keep a clean sheet; they’re just too good (even more so once you compare both teams). I feel that the Munich Champions League Group stage campaign will get off the ground with a flurry of goals, so bet Bayern for your <a href="/" title="For the latest in sports odds, news, picks and predictions, visit!" target="_blank">sports picks</a>.
