Champions League Wednesday Betting Tips PT 2- By A.J. Ryder on February 15, 2017 19:27 GMT
Arsenal fans who are genuinely confident that their side has a shot at this can grab a great price with a listing of about 15/2. The draw sits at a 4/1 price and you can back that in-play with a bit more confidence than you can before the kick off of the match.
One thing that definitely defines this contest is the fact that there are simply so many match winners on the pitch. Robert Lewandowski is going into it as the betting favourite to grab the opening goal with a price hovering around a 21/10 margin. Arjen Robben is also very much in the mix here and his ability to run directly at defenders and cut inside as he approaches the by-line is tailor-made for pulling apart Arsenal.
Thomas Muller is a solid selection at an 11/2 price tag and you can bank on his ability to get goals in big games. Kingsley Coman an Douglas Costa both hover around 7/1 margins to grab the opening goal of the match.
Real Madrid go into their contest against Napoli as the discernable favourites here but Napoli have showed that they have the ability to take on big teams and get results. That was on full display in the group stage and they have been able to muster up some quality European performances – hence why the bookmakers have Real Madrid (who are playing at home) listing as the odds-on favourites but certainly not locks to win the match by any possible means.
As it currently stands, punters will find Real Madrid trading at around a 4/7 price tag for the outright victory while the draw is trading at a 7/2 margin. Napoli to pull off a big result here is considered to be more plausible than Arsenal grabbing a win away to Bayern Munich and you'll find them priced at around a 5/1 margin with a few books going 11/2.
It pretty much goes without saying that Cristiano Ronaldo is going to be a popular option to grab a goal here and you'll find him priced at an 11/4 listing to score the opener while Karim Benzema is always dangerous. He's available at a price as high as a 9/2 margin.
Alvaro Morata is also very much in the mix here with a 5/1 price tag to score the opening goal while Dries Mertens is an 8/1 shout.
