UEFA Champions League Betting: Napoli vs. Borussia Dortmund

The other match taking place in Italy today features a tasty tilt between Napoli and last year's finalist Dortmund. I like the over 2.5 and both teams to score combo here.

Picking an outright winner in this match is going to be difficult given the quality both squads possess. They each have a high-level attack, finished runner-up in their respective domestic league last year, lost their best players in the off season (Gotze for BVB and Cavani for Napoli), and both have world reknowned coaches at the helm in Rafael Benitez and Jurgen Klopp.

Because of Dortmund's current run of good form and its strong run to the final last year, it comes in as a slight favourite today at 2.40. Dortmund is without influential German international playmaker Ilkay Gundogan and starting right back Lukasz Piszczek, though the high-flying side was able to do just fine without them on the weekend when it thrashed Hamburg by a 6-2 score.

The outright draw is listed at 3.10, which also happens to be the same price for the Napoli win.

Napoli has a healthy roster, and since losing Cavani to PSG it were able to snag Argentinean star Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid. The Italians will most likely not be as potent as they were when Cavani was around but should still highly effective, especially with the brilliant Marek Hamsik feeding him. They will have home support, and a win is not the underdog pick that bookies have them to be.

What I do like here is the both teams to score selection, which when combined with the over 2.5 will land you $260 on a $100 wager.

Both Higuain and Lewandowski (who finished second in the CL goal scoring chart last year with 10 strikes) are above evens in the anytime to score market at 2.50 and 2.25 respectively.
