The Citizens have hit a rough patch of late, yet they're still the clear-cut favorites on the soccer odds board for Wednesday's away tie at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Odds Overview
As of the time of this writing, Manchester City is quoted at right around -115 to win outright this coming Wednesday. The soccer betting lines show the hosts, Borussia Monchengladbach, there for the taking in the +300 to +325 range, while a draw can be locked in at approximately +275.

 

Borussia Monchengladbach
Following a shaky period in which they lost three straight matches, the Foales have righted the ship by winning consecutive matches over Augsburg (4-2) and Stuttgart (3-1) in the Bundesliga. They're in 14th place, however, through six matches, so they haven't been anywhere near their best.

Goals have been hard to come by for Monchengladbach, with no one within the squad having scored more than twice in league play thus far, and that was the case in the team's UCL opener, a 3-0 away loss to Sevilla.

 

Manchester City
We all know how much quality is littered throughout the Man City camp, but the Citizens have hit a wall of late. They've lost three of their last four matches overall, which includes a 2-1 setback at home to Juventus in their Group D opener.

Already in a hole in the group, City really need at least a point out of this visit to Monchengladbach.

 

Champions League Pick
Don't go thinking that Borussia Monchengladbach will be getting walked all over in this week's Champions League showdown.

Many are down on City right now following their recent setbacks, but we think that means they're undervalued for this week's match. They've still got one of the most talented squads out there from top to bottom, and they should be able to bounce back with at least a draw here.

We're going to go a step further though. We feel as if the Citizens will be able to scrape out the outright victory, thus making the fair soccer odds of -115 all the more appealing.

Predicted Final Score: Borussia Monchengladbach 1 Manchester City 2
