The Champions League moves into the last eight stage and when Malaga take on Borussia Dortmund there’s a big opportunity to win megamoney from the sportsbooks.

The soccer odds are pretty loose between the two sides, and  looking at recent form it's easy to see why; Borussia Dortmund has the best recent form with four wins and one loss from their last five games while Malaga have two wins, one loss and two draws from their last five.

The bigger picture

Most online sportsbooks have Borussia winning the Champions League at 8/1 or 3/1 on reaching the final. By comparison, the soccer odds on Malaga reaching the final of the Champions League are 20/1 and them actually winning it are 66/1.

Recent form

Malaga have failed to find the back of the net twice in their last five games. Dortmund by comparison have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last five games. In fact Borussia Dortmund have scored a whopping total of 14 goals from their last five games.

The German side is also breezed past Shakhtar Donetsk 5-2 on aggregate in the last round.

Malaga needed the two goals that they scored at home to make it past Porto 2-1.

With games like this one, pretty much anything can happen but if you want to bet on pure chance you should be sat at the roulette wheel throwing your money away.

Therefore check out the odds to see who you should be backing with your soccer picks.

Borussia Dortmund winning is available at 6/5 while Malaga winning is available at 13/5 a draw on the other hand is at 12/5.

I do feel that while the German outfit has the form, home advantage can't be discounted.

The sports books have the home side winning both sides at 9/2 and the away side winning both halves at 4/1. 

I actually have a feeling in my water that this game will end up drawn and we will see goals.

I think it makes sense to bet on one side being in the lead at halftime but the game ending drawn on 90 minutes.

This is almost a coin toss but the odds on Malaga leading at the break and then the game ending drawn is 17/1 while Borussia leading at the break and then the game ending tied is at 19/4.

The surest correct score odds or on 1-1 at 5/1 and if you're a good bit wild why not bet on 2-2 at 17/1.

Personally, I'm adding a draw to my sports picks.
