We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

i'm surprised to see Atletico Madrid at even worse odds than last year - might give them another go at +2500 right now (last year I think i got them for +2200).  They'll have a big hole in the midfield with Partey's departure, but Lucas Toreira should help fill that hole.  Plus a rejuvenated Suarez will be a handful. 

 

In terms of the favorites, Bayern to repeat at +400 seems like the obvious choice, although they have started the season pretty cold so far.  Liverpool at +650 seems good too especially with Thiago's arrival. But they too have started off a bit cool.  Guessing both will turn things around once they catch some steam in a few weeks.

Nice to have games again.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Trying to watch 6 at the same time was crazy.

Missed out on parlay bets yesterday (thanks for nothing PSG!) and today (Madrid collapsed and Salzburg gave up a late goal to tie). 

 

Atleti is playing well so far 11' in against Bayern. Happy with what I'm seeing so far.

I watched the middle 30-40 minutes of Salzburg and they looked thoroughly dominant...Im actually shocked they gave up a goal before and after I watched

They are lucky to only be down 2 at the half.
