If you can believe it, Barcelona didn't end up with a win their last time out. Don't be surprised to see a bounce-back victory, even away to a solid Bayer Leverkusen outfit this week. We've got the soccer odds breakdown inside.

Odds Overview
The Catalans are the away side on this occasion, yet when we check out the soccer odds, we see them as the favorites over Bayer Leverkusen. They're at roughly +105 to pick up all three points, which leaves Bayer Leverkusen as a +275 underdog, with a draw priced out in the +275 to +300 range.

 

Bayer Leverkusen
The German outfit has not been performing all that well in the league, as Bayer Leverkusen is in eighth place. In terms of Champions League, Bayer is in third place with only five points earned, but a positive result this week could see them advance as the second seed behind Barcelona. They're fighting alongside Roma, who will play BATE Borisov and is likely to win.

What that means is this fixture is of the utmost importance for Bayer. Can they topple the giants and secure advancement to the knockout stages?

 

Barcelona
We don't see it often, but Barcelona was held in check by Valencia this past weekend. The Catalans had been on quite a roll, but they had to settle for a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

It's going to be a tough assignment here on Wednesday too, but when you've got names like Messi, Suarez and Neymar, you're always in good hands. This team could go down as one of the most talented in the history of the sport; they've been that unstoppable this season.

 

Champions League Pick
It's not very often you can get a chance to back a team as talented as Barcelona at this kind of price. We're going to jump all over it.

We understand that Bayer have not been a complete punching bag like some of the other teams in the competition, and yes they'll be at home, but they just don't have the quality to match a side like Barcelona. We can expect multiple goals out of one of the most dangerous attacks in the world -- with our soccer picks, we'll be rolling with the Catalans at the fair price.
