UEFA Champions League picks for Benfica vs. PSG
Before you tune in to Wednesday’s match, you need to see the UEFA Champions League picks from consummate soccer insider Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, he has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. He is 243-225-7 overall on his soccer picks in 2022, including an astounding 37-20-1 on Premier League predictions for a profit of more than $1,400 for $100 bettors.
For PSG vs. Benfica, Eimer is backing over 2.5 goals at a -140 payout. Both squads sit atop their respective domestic leagues thanks to their offenses. PSG leads Ligue 1 with 28 goals, seven more than any other club.
PSG is blessed with three of the world’s best playmakers in Messi, Mbappe and Neymar. Each one of them got on the scoreboard in the team’s last UCL match, while Mbappe scored twice in the team’s Champions League opener. PSG has scored in their last 21 games dating back to last season and are showing no signs of having that streak end any time soon.
Meanwhile, Benfica is no slouch in the attacking third, especially when playing at home. They are averaging 3.5 goals in domestic league home matches compared to just 1.25 on the road. They also have a trio of their own that has Eimer confident that this will be a shootout affair.
“Rafa Silva, Joao Mario and Goncalo Ramos all have found four goals a piece so far in league play and will be looking for the chance to score against a PSG side, that while winning, hasn’t been the most clinical side defensively in recent form,” Eimer told SportsLine.
