Youngs Boys at Valencia (12:55 p.m. ET)
Moneylines: Young Boys (+630), Valencia (-205), Draw (+350)
Total: 3 (u-140)
Young Boys earned a valiant point against Valencia in their previous group stage game, a match where the public was overwhelmingly on Valencia.
Both clubs still have a decent chance to advance as long as Juventus can secure points at home against Manchester United.
The public is unsurprisingly back on Valencia as a -205 favorite, and odds are just about right. Obviously the home side have a clear edge here but I don’t see much value in the current market.
Roma at CSKA Moscow (12:55 p.m. ET on TNT)
Moneylines: Roma (-105), CSKA (+305), Draw (+265)
Total: 2.5 (o-110)
