Don't miss out on his last 16 Champions League tips, including an 5/1 enhanced offer for Neymar to score anytime at Genting Bet.

Juventus v Tottenham Tips

(Tues, 19.45)

Juventus Draw No Bet @ 4/9 - BET NOW

Juventus are the even money favourites here at time of writing which makes sense as they are currently on a 15 match unbeaten run and have a home record this season that reads played 17, won 13, drawn two and lost two. Against the top sides this season away from home Tottenham have been far from convincing, too. Spurs have already failed to beat Man Utd, Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool and Real Madrid on the road thus far. In fact, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won just three of their last 12 away games in all competitions - including an FA Cup tie against League Two Newport County! Perhaps it is wise to back Juventus draw no bet at a short price at 4/9 or a straight up home win at evens!

Both Teams To Score @ 21/20 - BET NOW

On a more positive note for Tottenham fans, the likelihood of an away goal is high here, despite Juventus conceding just once in 15 games! Spurs scored an away goal in each of their Champions League group stage matches, including at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid and have only failed to score in two of their 17 away matches in all competitions this season. Both teams to score is available with best Champions League odds of 21/20.

Gonzalo Higuain To Score @ 11/8 - BET NOW

In the anytime goalscorer market, Gonzalo Higuain is available at 11/8, which seem great odds for a player who has netted six goals in his last four games playing against a Spurs defence that have conceded in 10 of their last 12 away games.

Basel v Man City Tips

(Tues, 19.45)

Man City to Win and Both Teams To Score @ 19/10 - BET NOW

I think it is fair to say that Man City will have been extremely happy with the draw when they were paired up with Basel. The Swiss champions have already proven their quality this season, however. They have won nine of their 14 games so far this season at home, including two Champions League ties against Benfica and Man Utd. They are available at massive odds of 10/1 win this one, but with Man City romping to the Premier League title at present, I fancy an away win at 10/27.

However, you can squeeze plenty more value out of that particular Champions League pick by adding a both teams to score caveat. Man City have conceded 12 goals in their last 11 away games, whilst Basel have scored in 13 of their 14 home games this season. Back Man City to win and both teams to score at a best price of 19/10.

Over 2.5 Goals @ 8/13 - BET NOW

Another wise selection here could well be to back over 2.5 goals at 8/13. Nine of the 14 Basel home games this season have seen three or more goals scored and 12 Man City away matches have followed suit, too!

Porto v Liverpool Tips

(Weds, 19.45)

Porto Draw No Bet @ 5/4 - BET NOW

Despite the fact that Porto have lost just twice this season in all competitions and the fact that Liverpool have failed to ever win this fixture, the away side are odds against 11/8 favourites to win this one. In fairness, Liverpool have won seven of their last 10 games and they were sauntering to victory come the second half on Sunday in their 2-0 away success at Southampton, but with an odds against 5/4 price on Porto to not lose in the draw no bet market available, that is where I will lie my hat.

Roberto Firmino Anytime Goalscorer @ 15/8 - BET NOW

It will be interesting to see how Liverpool setup here as their gung ho approach in almost every single fixture they play can cost them at times. They have only failed to score in five fixtures all season long, and with Porto conceded six times in their last six home matches, it looks worthwhile backing a Liverpool player to score as they will counter at pace as always. Roberto Firmino looks the best Champions League bet in this market for me. He is top scorer for Liverpool in the competition with six goals, and a bigger price than Mo Salah at 15/8.

Real Madrid v PSG Tips

(Weds, 19.45)

PSG To Win @ 21/10 - BET NOW

The Champions League has been the bread and butter of Real Madrid in recent seasons, winning three of the last four finals! Weirdly, this is their last chance of a major trophy this season with their La Liga season looking over and having been knocked out of the Copa Del Rey. With that in mind, the pressure is well and truly on the home side here, but despite all that they are the 6/4 favourites to win this first leg. However, I am going to go against the market here and back a PSG win. The French champions have won 14 of their last 15 matches and are in far better form heading into this massive game - they are currently on a six match winning run!

Neymar To Score Anytime @ 5/1 exclusively at Genting - BET NOW

In the anytime goalscorer market, I will be looking to back Neymar to score. The former Barcelona man will get a hell of a lot of stick in this match from the home fans, and I hope that will inspire him to notch his 28th goal of the season. The Brazilian is in decent nick of late, scoring nine in his last six games!

Under 2.5 Goals @ 9/5 - BET NOW

These two sides have only met twice before in competitive action and just one goal was scored. With this being a first leg, let’s back under 2.5 goals to be scored again, with a very tempting price of 9/5 in the over/under Real Madrid v PSG betting market.
