D could well stand for Doom and Group D look like it’s going to be a team competition in. Thankfully if you follow your Humble Handicapper’s soccer betting tips, you can be a winner.
<p style="text-align:left"><span style="font-size:1em">Group D boasts some big names, not least Germany’s Bayern Munich. There's also The EPL f ormer champions Man City, then Russia’s CSKA Moscow and making up the numbers Viktoria Plzen.</span></p> <p>You probably don’t know it but VP are  a Czech professional football club who ply their trade in the Gambrinus liga, the top division of the Czech republic.</p> <p><strong>How Interesting….WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?</strong></p> <p>Bayern Munich are the team to beat in this group as the bookies have them at 4/1 favourites to win the tournament. Man city are also in contention (of sorts) at 11/1 and worth a dark horse bet, as they have the squad who (on paper) could do it, however I’d be weary of backing City as the EPL is there main focus and it’s a more open domestic season that what it’s been for a while. </p> <p><strong>What About The Rest?</strong></p> <p>CSKA Moscow  come in at 150/1 to win the Champions League for our <a href="/soccer/" title="Free Soccer Picks" target="_blank">soccer picks</a>, but a bet for vodka drinkers only while Viktoria Plezen are massive 1500/1 long shots, and a bet for lunatics and no-one lese.</p> <p>It’s a chipper match up on Tuesday the 17th September as Muncih host Moscow and I reckon that game will be a real declaration of intent by both sides. Moscow are 14/1 long shots to take all three points but with a draw at <a href="/betting-odds/soccer/" title="Live Betting Odds" target="_blank">soccer betting odds</a> of 13/2, it’ll probably be a Munich win However, remember that in the Champions League sometimes the apple cart gets well upset.</p> <p>(Not this time though)</p> <p>Still the bookies have the home side winning both halves at 4/9 while Moscow winning any half is at 25/1 (and that still sees them go out losers on the 90).</p> <p><em>Check out my article on <a href="/soccer/free-picks/soccer-picks-champions-league-group-odds-predictions-a-33159/" title="Group A" target="_blank">Champions League Group A</a>~</em></p> <p><em>And ... <a href="/soccer/free-picks/soccer-picks-champions-league-b-group-odds-prediction-a-33158/" title="Group B" target="_blank">Champions League Group B</a>~</em></p> <p><strong>Odds on For a Home in</strong></p> <p>If any more proof be needed the shortest correct score odds on this game are on Munich winning 2-0 at 7/1, while the shortest odds on a Moscow victory are 40/1, for 2-1. A mini bet, if you must.</p> <strong>Free Prediction: </strong><a href=";book=ladbrokesinarticle" title="Go to Ladbrokes sportsbooks" target="_blank">All about Munich, with City (also) progressing, in their wake</a>.
