Champions League Best Bets + Best UCL Betting Promos For R16

The intensity is quickly rising in Europe’s top club football competition, the Champions League.

There have already been some thrillers and shocking upsets, and half of the teams remaining have yet to play; there’s plenty to know before they get started, so let’s get right into some Champions League best bets, plus some terrific Champions League betting promos for R16 action.

Best Bets For Champions League Round of 16

PSV vs Dortmund Betting Pick

Dortmund or Draw (-140) • BetMGM Sportsbook

PSV are having one of the most dominant campaigns in Dutch Eredivisie history, with an outrageous 19 wins, two draws and no losses thus far.

They’re on track for by far the most points in an Eredivisie season, and are catching Dortmund in a definitive down season.

All of that being said, we aren’t here to take away from a great domestic campaign, but it’s been quite different in the UCL, where they’ve drawn three times- including unimpressive showings against Sevilla and Lens- and lost 4-0 at Arsenal.

Dortmund have been shockingly good away from the formidable Signal Iduna Park this year, and topped the toughest UCL group in recent memory; expect them to navigate this fixture as well, and go home with a great chance to advance.

Inter vs Atlético Madrid Betting Pick

Inter Moneyline (-120) • Caesars Sportsbook

This one should be abjectly uncompetitive, especially since it will be played at the San Siro.

The Nerazzurri are running away from the pack in Serie A, so they have the luxury of going full steam ahead in Europe, they look to get just a half-step farther than they did a season ago, when they were runners-up.

Conversely, Atlético are locked in an absolute duel just to make it into this competition next year, as Bilbao are just two points behind Los Colchoneros for the fourth spot in the La Liga table.

This game. They’ve been a really rough road side thus far, so don’t expect them to put up too much of a fight in Milan.

Porto vs Arsenal Betting Pick

Arsenal Moneyline (-135) • BetMGM Sportsbook

This clash will be fought between teams sitting in third place in their respective leagues, but it’s not as even as that billing would make it sound.

Of course, the Premier League is more competitive than Portugal’s Primeira Liga, and Arsenal are also much closer to the top than Porto are, in terms of points, goal differential, and just about any other measure.

Mikel Arteta knows that this first leg is a must-win contest; coming back home with a lead and the ability to rotate his lineup is vital as he balances viable trophy pushes in multiple major competitions.

Expect Arsenal to come out hot and assert themselves in this one.

Napoli vs Barcelona Betting Pick

Over 2.5 Goals (-130) at Caesars Sportsbook

Both of these teams ran away with their respective leagues last season, but things are very different right now; Napoli are in ninth place in Serie A, while Barça are third in an infinitely less-challenging La Liga, and 10 points away from the top.

Both teams had an ugly group stage, although Napoli lost twice to Real Madrid, while Barça struggled with Shakhtar Donetsk and Royal Antwerp.

Both of these teams are relatively defensively challenged, especially Barça, who have allowed the ninth-most goals in Spain.

Napoli allowed seven goals in their two matches against Madrid, who have also ripped Barça open more than once this year. Expect plenty of scoring with stars like Robert Lewandowski and Victor Osimhen squaring off.
