Best bets for Tuesday's Champions League games

By Nicholas Hennion  ( 


The first leg of the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League begins on Tuesday.

Here is a quick betting preview of both games:

Atletico Madrid vs. Chelsea (in Bucharest, Romania)

In Champions League knockout round home legs, Atletico Madrid is basically LeBron James on a fast break. Since the 2013-14 season, Los Rojiblancos have amassed 10 wins, three draws and zero losses and allowed a total of two goals in 13 home legs. On the three occasions the club drew, the games ended 0-0.

Currently at BetMGM, Atletico is + 175 on the three-way moneyline and a pick ’em on the goal line. If you want to get the push protection with the goal line, it’ll cost you a quarter (-125). Chelsea is + 190 on the three-way and %plussign5 on the goal line. The draw ML is + 190 and the total is set at two -- juiced to the over at -115.
