Anthony Dabbundo: This is a classic buy-low, sell-high spot in Spain, with Sevilla hosting German side Wolfsburg.

The Wolves have made marginal improvements under new manager Florian Kohfeldt, winning three and drawing once since he took the charge following the departure of Mark van Bommel. However, the performances haven’t been that much better. It has been more that they were due for some attacking regression based on expected-goals numbers and it came in those games.

Wolfsburg is still a mediocre attacking side that has been one of the worst in the entire UCL this campaign. The Wolves average the third-fewest shots per 90 minutes in the competition and the third-fewest final third touches. When Wolfsburg played away to Lille and RB Salzburg, the club looked totally lost out of possession and generated one combined xG in two matches.

Sevilla had a bizarre 2-1 loss to Lille at home in its last match after dominating the opening 40 minutes. They’ve been much better in Spain with one of the best xGDiff/90 minutes, but that hasn’t quite translated to results in this tournament. One major reason is penalties. Sevilla has conceded four and that has cost them points.

The Spanish side failed to create high quality chances through crossing — its typical tactic — but the Wolfsburg defense hasn’t been nearly as good away from home.

With Sevilla facing a must-win spot, the club is underrated and undervalued.

Jeremy Pond: When it comes to sexy matches, this ain’t it.

Swiss side Malmö welcomes Zenit to Eleda Stadium for a battle of Group H cellar dwellers. These lowly clubs have combined for 1-7 record, which came when the Russian outfit delivered a 4-0 thrashing to its host in the first game.

Reigning champion Chelsea (12 points) and Serie A powerhouse Juventus (nine points) are running away with things atop the table, which likely won’t change unless Zenit can make some magic happen starting here in Switzerland.

I fully expect this to be a wide-open game, with both teams in dire need of a victory. This is especially crucial for the Blue-White-Sky Blues. They must walk away from this clash with another three points to at least give Juventus something to think about.

That said, I’m going back to the well with another Same Game Parlay, pairing both teams to score with the total going over 2.5 goals at -110 odds in my leg of this parlay. Malmö has absolutely nothing to lose in this matchup, so I fully expect the underdog to come out pumped and on a mission.

Sure, the Blues haven’t scored a single goal in four UCL games, but this is the best shot they have at getting a result in the group before their looming elimination. My colleague, BJ Cunningham, projects Malmö at 1.12 expected goals, which also gives me confidence the host can get at least one goal.

As for Zenit, the Russian stalwart has scored at least 16 goals in 19 matches across all competitions. The Blue-White-Sky Blues even hung two goals on Juventus at Allianz Stadium in Turin last time out, which has me optimistic they can bag a few in this affair.

Pond’s Pick: Same Game Parlay — Both Teams To Score (Yes) & Total Over 2.5 Goals (-110)

Dabbundo & Pond Parlay

Sevilla ML (-145) & Malmo vs. Zenit — SGP: BTTS (Yes) & Total Over 2.5 Goals (-110) at +222 odds via DraftKings.
