Check out our expert Champions League analysis and predictions. Group stage outright picks, top goalscorer market and overall outright winners.
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">Group Stage Outright Picks</h2><p>We are only going to focus on the groups that are still wide open and have all to play for, many of the groups are pretty much wrapped up and don’t hold any significant value.</p><p> </p><h2>Group B</h2><p><strong>Group B is arguably the widest open group of the remaining eight.</strong> The two pre-tournament favourites (Real Madrid and Inter Milan) are sitting last and second last right now. With that being said, only three points separates the top from bottom. Our Champions League betting pick for group B is the German outfit, Borussia Monchengladbach to keep on rolling and to top the group at odds of 3.25.</p><p>They have scored the most and conceded the least in this group. As good as they have been playing, its more so the short comings of Real Madrid and Inter Milan as the reason why we think Gladbach have a super chance of topping this group. Matchday 4 will be the biggest game as regards this pick. If Gladbach can get a home win over Shaktar Donetsk and Madrid and Inter play out a draw, then <strong>Gladbach will be in prime position to top the group and we suspect their odds will drift into around 2.25.</strong></p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick: </strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Borussia Monchengladbach To Win The Group at 3.25 with Bet365</a></p><p> </p><h2>Group D</h2><p><strong>The group of “death” as it is traditionally known, due to its irony of being group D</strong>, has been living up to its name so far. We have seen some wild results, including Liverpool’s 5-0 thrashing of Atalanta. Liverpool currently top the group with 9 points (five more than second place), and they should ease to victory, but who will take the second qualifying spot? Our money is on Ajax at betting odds of 2.0.</p><p>Ajax have looked just a little more solid than their biggest challengers for second place, Atalanta. Ajax were a little unlucky not to get a draw against Liverpool, whilst Atlanta were hammered by them. Ajax also had a 2-0 lead over Atlanta in matchday two, and blew that lead, with the game ending 2-2. The nail in the coffin for this pick is the fact that Ajax have two home games against Atalanta and Midtjylland, whilst Atlanta only have a home tie against Midtjylland. <strong>We feel Ajax holds some nice value at 2.0 to qualify ahead of the Italian team in the group of “death”.</strong></p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick:</strong> <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Ajax To Qualify at 2.0 with William Hill</a></p><p> </p><h2>Group H</h2><p>PSG, one of the pre-tournament favourites, find themselves in 3rd spot int group H after two defeats in three games. Istanbul Basaksehir beating Man united on matchday 3 has given them a lifeline to possibly bounce back and win this group.</p><p>The French side suffered a 2-1 defeat to RB Leipzig on matchday 3, which is why <strong>they are now betting odds of 1.83 to qualify from the group.</strong> They were very unlucky to loose that game and on a different day they could have managed a draw at the very least. Both Neymar and Mbappe were unavailable for the game and they were on the receiving end of two red cards.</p><p><strong>With that being said, PSG now face RB Leipzig and Basaksehir at home, and Man Utd away.</strong> If Neymar and Mbappe are back, we fully expect PSG to get six points from those two home games and considering Man Utd’s poor home form this season, we wouldn’t be surprised to see PSG win at Old Trafford either and take 9 points from a possible 9 in the remaining three games and qualify from group H.</p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick: </strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">PSG To Qualify at 1.83 with Betway</a></p><p><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5fac2c5c4eb3a7c5c568fdca/original-timo-wermer" style="width:100%;height:100%" /></p><h2 style="text-align:center">Top Goalscorer Outright Picks</h2><h2>Timo Werner (Chelsea)</h2><p>When backing top goalscorer’s in cup competitions like the Champions League we always need to think, how far can that team go to give their player a better opportunity to score more goals.</p><p><strong>We believe Timo Werner of Chelsea holds some good value to be tournament top goalscorer</strong> at odds of <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">12.00 with Betway</a>. The German striker has a total of three goals from the opening three games. The current tournament top goalscorer’s have just four goals from three games. Werner is right in the mix, yet we are getting some super value on him.</p><p>Werner is currently Chelsea’s top scorer in all competition this season, having netted 8 goals in 12 games and with a home tie against Krasnodar coming up next, there is potential for him to add another few goals to the leader board.</p><p>Chelsea have looked strong this year, scoring seven goals, and conceding none. They should make it to the quarter finals at the very least, giving Werner seven more games to get on the scoresheet a few more times. If Chelsea get to the Semi Final or Final, he will be right in the mix for the Golden Boot.</p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick: </strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Timo Werner Top Goalscorer at 12.00 with Betway</a></p><p> </p><h2>Erin Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)</h2><p>Norwegian striker, <strong>Haaland has been a sensation since his move to Dortmund in January 2020, he has scored 21 goals in just 19 club appearances. </strong>Haaland seems to like scoring in this tournament, as his overall Champions League record is 14 goals in 11 games. That’s pretty unbelievable considering the Norwegian striker just turned 20 a few months back.</p><p>Haaland is in prime position to take this seasons golden boot in the Champions League. He is joint top goalscorer, along with three other players. The difference with Haaland and his rivals being, he is Dortmund’s go to man in terms of goals. They are always looking for Haaland when they attack. Two of his top goalscorer rivals only have four goals because they managed a hat trick in the last round. To sum it up, Haaland is the only player with four goals in this year’s competition to have scored in every game.</p><p><strong>We believe Dortmund has the potential to go far in this years tournamen</strong>t, and should they do just that, Haaland will no doubt have his part to play in terms of providing his team goals. For this reason we like Haaland to be top goalscorer at 6.50, he is currently second favorite behind Polish striker, Robert Lewandowski.</p><p>As a single pick for Lewandowski to be top scorer, we do not believe there is much value at 4.20, considering he only has the two goals so far in this years tournament, with that being said, keep reading to see were we did find value on the Lewandowski top scorer market.</p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick:</strong> <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Erin Haaland Top Goalscorer at 6.50 with William Hill</a></p><p><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5dc5c34a6b874737616cc533/original-lewandowski-bayern-munich" style="width:100%;height:100%" /></p><h2 style="text-align:center">Champions League Outright Winner Picks</h2><h2>Bayern Munich</h2><p>Last seasons Champions League winners are the favourites again for this years tournament, and with good reason too. They have one of the best all around teams right now in Europe and their Midfielders and Strikers are in top form. <strong>The fire power up front is scary, no defence in the Tournament can handle them</strong>, which is why they won last season and why we believe they will win it again in 2021.</p><p>They are currently the tournaments top goalscorer’s and have conceded only three goals, which lands them in fifth place in terms of goals against. We must also take note, they are the top scorers, yet Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller have only scored two goals between them in eight games. That’s well below par for these three and we fully expect that to change as the tournament goes on.</p><p>Bayern Munich’s best odds to win this seasons edition of the Champions League are available at <a href="https://www.bookmakersreview.com/william-hill/review/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Willian Hill</a>, <a href="https://www.bookmakersreview.com/paddypower/review/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paddy Power</a> and <a href="https://www.bookmakersreview.com/bet365/review/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bet365</a>, all odds available at 3.75. <strong>We believe its best to get on the German champions now as their odds will no doubt decrease</strong> as they progress through the tournament, they should make it to the semi finals at the very least. There is no team in this years tournament who would be favourite over Munich in the knockout stages.</p><p>As a small side bet, we like Munich to win the Champions League and Robert Lewandowski to be top goalscorer at odds of 9.25, these two should come hand in hand should one win, the other will most likely win and at Champions League betting odds of 9.25, its worth a bet. This bet is only available at William Hill.</p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick:</strong> <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bayern Munich To Win The Champions League at 3.75 with Paddy Power</a></p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick: </strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bayern Munich To Win The Champions League + Lewandowski To Be Top Goalscorer at 9.25 with William Hill</a></p><p> </p><h2>Outsider Contenders Worth Betting On</h2><p>Chelsea have steadily improved under Frank Lampard, and they are looking stronger and stronger in every game they play. Their odds to win this years Champions League are very favourable at 20.00, available with 888sport. <strong>We believe Chelsea at these odds are overpriced</strong> as they have the ability to knock out many of the top teams above them in the betting.</p><p>Similar to our Chelsea pick, <strong>Dortmund have been improving as the season progresses and with the young Erin Haaland up front</strong>, they can go deep into this tournament if he stays hot. They have also solidified their defence this season, having kept 6 clean sheets form their previous 8 games. 35.00 is the best odds available for Dortmund.</p><p><strong>Atletico Madrid could be the most dangerous Spanish side in this years Champions League</strong>, they have flown under the radar so far (it doesn’t help that they are placed in a group with Bayern Munich) and have not performed to the best of their ability. They are a team set up for knockout football and have made it into 2 finals, 2 quarter finals and 1 semi final in the previous 6 editions of the Champions League. We would need to see a lot more from them in the knockout stage, but with players like Luis Suarez and Joao Felix they can make a push for the trophy.</p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick:</strong> <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=8e57de00-8c0e-4848-b6da-ea2a0f565fb1&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Chelsea To Win The Champions League at 20.00 with 888Sport</a></p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick:</strong> <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Borussia Dortmund To Win The Champions League at 35.00 with Unibet</a></p><p><strong>Free Betting Pick:</strong> <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Atletico Madrid To Win The Champions League at 23.00 with Betway</a></p></div>
