Top Champions League picks

Moneyline: PSG (+290) vs. Bayern Munich (+290 via Caesars) ⭐⭐⭐

There’s no Neymar for Paris Saint-Germain, but the French champions are unbeaten when Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe have partnered each other without him in the side. Mbappe broke the all-time scoring record for PSG at the weekend, and when he was asked about his future he said, “winning the Champions League.” Only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (8) has scored more goals than Mbappe (7) in this season’s competition. Messi leads the tournament for the most assists (4). 

Bayern Munich have won 15 of their last 17 home games in the Champions League, although their only defeat during that span was to PSG. Messi is one goal away from joining Cristiano Ronaldo as the only players to score 50 goals in the knockout stages of the competition. The European crown is what PSG crave more than any title. They’ve got the players to turn this tie around. 

The +290 odds from Caesars are the best among our top five books for this play. BetMGM and PointsBet price PSG as low as +260, while the next highest odds are +270 via FanDuel. I like this play because of how much this tournament means to the French club. Messi’s had a phenomenal season so far and a Champions League crown will be the cherry on the top.

Prop: Tottenham to advance vs. Milan (+140 via Caesars) ⭐⭐⭐

Milan head to London with a 1-0 advantage. However, these two sides are having similar seasons in their respective domestic leagues. Both have won 14 games, both currently occupy fourth place and both have lost their most-recent match. 

Spurs have progressed from two of their last three European ties after losing the first leg. Milan have only ever won one of their 21 away games against English sides in all European competitions. Tottenham’s Italian head coach, Antonio Conte, returns to the dugout after recovering from gallbladder surgery. Conte is a fierce winner, who coached Milan’s arch rivals Inter to the Italian championship in 2021. Conte has won five of his last six home games against AC Milan in all competitions. 

Whichever way they get through, home advantage will be a key factor in this tie for Spurs. We just need them to advance to win this play. Tottenham has the superior squad, which should see them progress. 

FanDuel’s odds for this play is +122, with DraftKings at +135. Caesars is offering the best price at +140.
