And that means we have another interesting two-leg parlay for bettors, who had to be happy if they tailed our Tuesday winner we delivered.

Jeremy Pond: There is no reason to beat around the bush or sugarcoat the obvious that’s going to happen in Turin. An epic beatdown is about to occur and I’m already feeling sorry for the Swiss visitors.

Juventus has to win this match to have any chance of finishing ahead of reigning champion Chelsea in the battle for Group H supremacy. And even if The Old Lady does get a triumphant result, she’s going to need some help from her Russian friends in Zenit.

Bottom line, I don’t see Malmö putting up a fight in this contest. The Blues have just one point in their first five games in the competition, plus they haven’t won a UCL fixture in six years.

That said, I fully expect Juventus to come out full throttle and have the victory signed, sealed and delivered in the opening half. The Old Lady has won six of her last eight matches on home soil. Needless to say, she’ll make it seven of nine in this clash with the group’s cellar dweller.

Lay the two-goal spread and enjoy the show.

Pond’s Pick: Juventus -2 (-115)

Benfica vs. Dynamo Kiev

Benfica Odds -360
Dynamo Kiev Odds +1000
Draw +500
Over/Under 2.5 (-150/ +120)

Brett Pund: Benfica needs a win to progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time since the 2016-17 season. Meanwhile, Dynamo Kiev is looking to play spoiler at the bottom of Group E. 

This match pits together two of the lower-scoring teams in the UCL, which is why it makes the No on the Both Teams To Score bet at -150 a great parlay leg. 

The visitors are one of just three teams with only one goal scored in the group stages, while also only averaging 0.57 non-penalty expected goals per match and 7.4 shots/90 minutes according to fbref.com.

If you take away the three goals in the victory over Barcelona, Benfica has only found the net two more times on a total of 5.4 NPxG in the five group stage games. 

The same bet would have cashed in four of five involving the Portuguese side, which is the same for Dynamo Kiev. 

When you add in the fact that the first match between the two finished 0-0, I think there’s solid value as a parlay piece for the same bet to win again.

Pund’s Pick: Both Teams To Score — No (-150)

Wednesday Champions League Parlay

Juventus -2 (-115) & Benfica vs. Dynamo Kiev: BTTS — No (-150) at +221 odds via DraftKings.
