It is back to UEFA Champions League betting on Tuesday night with the start of the round of sixteen. We have two games to open with and one of them looks to be a real cracker between PSG and Chelsea for the third season running. PSG, who are 25 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 are heavy favourites to take the first leg advantage, and it was they who won last season’s battle on away goals.
PSG are 9/13 to take the win with Chelsea hovering out at a long 5/1 price. In Tuesday night’s other match, Benfica take on Zenit St Petersburg in what could be a war of attrition over the two legs. Just to show the uncertainty of the outcome of that one, the Portuguese outfit are a long 23/20 price to pick up the first leg win on home soil, with Zenit out at 3/1.
But that uncertainty adds value to them in the market and in fact, Sky Bet are taking that a step further with a UEFA Champions League enhanced odds special.
Yes, Sky Bet are running a Top Betting price boost for customers on Tuesday night. You can back both Benfica and Chelsea to win at a huge 14/1 price. The industry average on that double is 10/1.
PSG have only beaten Chelsea once in their previous six UEFA Champions League meetings, while Benfica put in a decent enough shift to finish second to Atletico Madrid in the group stage.
