The game most will be watching today features a scorching hot Bayern Munich side head to London to face a troubled Arsenal squad in the 1st leg of their Champions League series.

It's not often that Arsenal find themselves underdogs at home but that is the case today as they host a very dangerous Bayern Munich at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners are currently slated at a chunky 3.80 to take full points in this match as well as 3.00 in the draw no bet category, but after a heavily disappointing loss to Championship side Blackburn in the FA Cup this past weekend, many bettors are straying away from Arsenal in the outright market.

They finished 1-1-1 in home matches during the group stage with an even five goals for and against. Their sole loss at home also happened to come at the hands of a German side when Schalke beat them 2-0 back in late October.

The draw result is at 3.40 over at William Hill and offers decent value though you should expect Bayern Munich to come out guns a blazing as to avoid leaving it to the second leg back at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern have easily been one of the top three clubs in world soccer this season and have dominated the Bundesliga with ease, especially on the road. The Bavarians have yet to lose in 11 road matches in league play with only a solitary goal conceded in those games, though they did lose to Belarusian side BATE during the Champions League group stage. Still, the team emerged atop of the group and it's evident that this side is eager to go that extra distance in this campaign after losing at home to Chelsea in last year's final.

Bayern are currently listed at evens (2.00) to churn out a vital road victory.

The match result and both teams to score section sees a payout of 4.50 should the game end in a draw with both teams getting on the scoreboard.

In the correct scorer markets, the Bayern duo of Claudio Pizzaro and Thomas Muller have each notched three goals in this competition and are being offered at 2.75 and 2.87 to score at any point in the match, respectively, while Arsenal's German striker Lukas Podolski is listed at 4.33 to do the same.
