There’s a champion’s bounty to be had in the Champions League when PSG take on Anderlecht, just as long as you follow your Humble Handicapper’s soccer picks.

The soccer odds lean in one direction only and it has a French flavour! It’s all about PSG but with soccer odds like this you have to be a clever bettor, or have the help of your Humble Handicapper and his soccer picks.

The tres bonne (and tres dans-forme) Ligue 1 leaders have not tasted defeat in Europe's premier club competition for over a year and will be confident of making it four wins from four in Group C. Is it worth mentioning that they have scored in each of their last 31 games? Let’s just say that I have.

Now they will not only expect to extend their unbeaten streak in the Champions League to 12 matches when they host Anderlecht on Tuesday, but do the double over the minnows they have in their sights.

La Ligue Un leaders are thick in the mix with the favourites to win the Champions League, with soccer odds of 11/2 on them making the final and 12/1 on them lifting the cup.

The last time these sides met some little player called Zlatan Ibrahimovic went one better than a hatrick with four goals, three of which came in the first 36 minutes. He’s 2/5 (favourite) to score and 10/1 (favourite again) to get another hatrick.

It’s interesting to note that Anderlecht’s only defeats in their last five (that 5-0 honking and a 1-0 reverse against De kerels) have both come at home. Away from home, Anderlecht have two wins from their last two and what's more they’ve kept two clean sheets and outscored their opposition 5-0. Still, Anderlecht winning is at 18/1, and them winning to nil is at 50/1.

Paris St Germain are on a bit of a roll at present and they’ve notched up 4 wins and a draw in their last five. What’s more in that run they’ve outscored the competition 17 goals to three. That’s an average of a little more than three per game scored, with a little less than one per game conceded. They’re 8/15 to win to nil.

It’s very different for Anderlecht, they’ve have won just two of their last 11 matches in the Champions League and lost all of their Group C fixtures so far. Their score card reads; a 2-0 reverse at Benfica followed by a 3-0 home defeat against Olympiakos and then the aforementioned 5-0.

PSG will win, just pick a score.

Soccer Pick: PSG win 3-1 available at 14/1 with bet365
