<p style="text-align:center"><iframe allowfullscreen frameborder="0" height="330" src="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/video/embed/?videoId=25510" width="560"></iframe></p> <p><strong>Wolfsburg Emerge Competition Faves</strong><br /> Wolfsburg are the hot faves to win Europe's second tier club competition, matched at +550 soccer odds in UEFA Europa League futures markets, ahead of second faves Napoli at +600 and third faves Roma at +800. It's no wonder, therefore, Wolfsburg enter the first leg of their R16 tie with Inter Milan as the considerable home faves at -143 <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/soccer/" target="_blank" title="Shop for the best numbers on the board">soccer odds</a> to win outright and the -175 faves to advance into the quarterfinals.</p> <p>Underscoring this market outlook is a brilliant start to the second half of the season by the Wolves, a run of form that includes winning five of their seven domestic fixtures to date and began on a gauntlet throwing 4-1 win over Bayern Munich. Their only wobbles during this domestic stretch were a 1-1 draw to Eintracht Frankfurt and a 1-0 loss to Augsburg.</p> <p>Since coming out of the winter break, they are undefeated in nine of ten fixtures in all competitions. A run of form that includes a 2-0 win on aggregate over Sporting CP in the R32 of Europa League betting.</p> <p>What's most impressive about the Wolves is home form, which includes a run of six straight wins in all competitions, eight in their last ten overall. The only hiccups at home during this run of form were a 2-0 loss to Everton in Europa League group play and a 1-1 draw to Paderborn. In this stretch, they also scored two or more goals in seven of the ten games. (In total, 19 goals netted and just seven conceded).</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/europa-league-villarreal-vs-sevilla-primera-division-high-flyers-free-soccer-pick/55054/" target="_blank" title="Europa League Villarreal vs. Sevilla Free Soccer Pick"><var>For More Action Check Primera Division High Flyers Free Soccer Pick</var></a></p> <p><strong>Inter Milan Look To Punch Above Their Weight Class</strong><br /> Although Inter Milan's domestic campaign leaves much to be desired, their European campaign is alive and kicking. They finished top of Group F with an undefeated 3-3-0 record. In the R32, they extended that undefeated form with a 3-3 draw with Celtic in Glasgow and a 1-0 win in the reverse leg in Milan.</p> <p>As it is, Inter Milan are dangerous floaters in the competition priced at +1600 to win it all. They are an exceedingly frustrating side to play against because one never knows which side is going to step out onto the field: the Nerazzuri that are enjoying a convincing run in Europe or the Nerazzuri that appear to be flailing in Serie A action, sat ninth in the table behind a modest 9-9-8 mark and 36 points and without a win in all competitions since beating Celtic in Milan. They lost 1-0 to Fiorentina and drew 2-2 to Napoli in Serie A.</p> <p>Most worrying, they don't have a win on the road against a reputable side in all competitions this season. It's that lack of a signature win that explains why they are the decided underdogs in this tie and matched at <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/soccer/?leagueId=europa-league" target="_blank" title="Check out Europa League's Odds Board">+450 soccer odds</a> to win outright. Even the draw is a long shot at +300 against a side with as much quality as the Bundesliga high-flyers have.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Soccer Betting Verdict</strong><br /> Wolfsburg are justifiably matched as the favourites to win the first leg at -143 soccer odds and, to all intents and purposes, they should come through for soccer bettors. Perhaps a better <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/" target="_blank" title="More Free Soccer Picks by SBR Experts">soccer pick</a> though is to back Wolfsburg to win both halves at +140 at Bet365.  As well, the Over 2.5 at -138.</p> <p><strong>Soccer Picks:</strong> Wolfsburg to win at -143 <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=2794&amp;book=in-article-bet365" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Visit Bet365 &amp; Place your Sports Bets Today!">at Bet365</a></p> <p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2822754, "sportsbooksIds":[43], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p>
