During my sports betting career I’ve wagered on everything from football to snooker, and I have to tell you that nothing really feels better than when you completely nail a soccer game.  That was the case on Sunday, where we hit everything there was to hit on the Serie A game between Sampdoria and AS Roma.  We nailed the side (Sampdoria +1 +110) and hit our two prop bets on ‘both teams to score’ and ‘Giampaolo Pazzini to score anytime’.  We’ll try to produce another profitable soccer betting position with Tuesday Champions League action between Bayern Munich and Olympique Lyon.  Bayern Munich won the opening leg in Germany 1-0, and the action shifts to France for an 11:45 AM Pacific/2:45 PM Eastern contest at the Stade Gerland.  We’ll have our writeup and selections on Wednesday’s Inter Milan/Barcelona second leg match posted tomorrow.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE–OLYMPIQUE LYON VS. BAYERN MUNICH:

Lyon has ‘flown under the radar’ somewhat but they’re a very good team and are in good position to advance despite their first leg defeat.  Bayern Munich missed several great opportunities to score in that game, and Lyon has to feel good that they’re returning home with only a single goal deficit.  Lyon has really played better in the Champions League than in the French Ligue 1, where they’re in 5th place.  In league play they’ve got a good though not great home record, with 9 wins 4 draws and 3 losses.  In Champions League action, however, they’re undefeated at home with 5 wins and a draw and have scored 15 goals in the process.

Bayern Munich has been solid on the road in Champions League play, though they’ll be without Franck Ribery who is suspended due to bookings.  Bayern has only won 2 of 5 away games in the competition, but of particular importance heading into this matchup is the fact that their 3 losses were by a single goal.  Their defense has been a concern of late, and particularly on the road but in Champions League play at least they’ve been able to score as well.  That’s crucial here since an away goal could be the difference in which team advances.

And that’s how we see it going down–we like Lyon to win the game but like Bayern to advance to away goals.  We’ll go to Bookmaker for these lines, and play Lyon to win and the game to go Over the total.

PLAY LYON +135 OVER BAYERN MUNICH
PLAY LYON/BAYERN MUNICH OVER 2′ -115

For our European readers, we like the ‘both teams to score’ prop bet.  This is a standard bet at most European based sportsbooks that specialize in soccer:

PLAY BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE -125
