Soccer Wagering Analysis:

PSV Eindhoven (+150) In Holland, PSV Eindhoven is a force to be reckoned with. They are currently in the title race, fighting with Ajax, Feyenoord and AZ. In the last couple of years, they emerge from this battle triumphant by the end of the season. Their domestic action points to another successful year as both opening matches were won in style. The beat Utrecht 5:1 and Sparta 1:0. PSV Eindhoven will be anxious to carry the momentum in domestic action on to the international arena.

Atletico Madrid (+190) Atletico returns to Champions League action after an 11-year exile. The club’s heavy investments in the depth and quality of their bench are finally reaping the rewards and they bring a strong squad to Champions League competition. In fact, they are considered good enough to affect Group action and possibly advance.

Soccer Gambling Verdict: The Spanish giants are bidding to top the table in Spain and Europe but to do so they will have to start winning these kinds of matches. On paper, they have the team to do so but it remains to be seen whether they can translate that force onto the pitch. Having missed 11 years of Champions League action, they are sorely lacking in the experience category – something that can be a huge handicap even against such a quality side. Nevertheless, the Spaniards have flare. They will try to take the initiative in this match. PSV Eindhoven has home edge. They have done well in recent Champions League editions and will hope to do better this season. They have experience and they are ready.

Soccer Free Picks: PSV Eindhoven is a tough side and even tougher to beat at home (at +150 on the money line taking the Dutch for the home win is a good bet). They will want to win and we should expect an attacking game from them. With the promise of a high-paced and intense match, goals should be aplenty. As such, over 2 goals -125 is a good play.
