UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE PICK
Benfica are 2.45 favourites in this one and are a casualty of the UEFA Champions League. They came third in their group and just couldn’t get the goals going against the superior opposition. It was always going to be a tough group with Bayern Munich and Ajax in it, but at least they beat AEK Athens twice.
UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE | Dinamo Zagreb – Benfica
When: 12:55 PM ET, Thursday, March 7th, 2019
Where: Stadion Maksimir, Zagreb, Croatia
TV Coverage: ESPN, Fox Sports
Round of 16, 1st Leg
Benfica responded well in the Europa League with a 2-1 victory over Galatasaray followed by a 0-0 draw at home as they did what was needed.They’re on a great run domestically and just got that big 2-1 win over Porto.
Dinamo Zagreb are solid enough but they had their issues in the group stages and got lucky against Viktoria Plzen, who they almost lost to.
I just think there is a gulf in quality here despite Zagrebs excellent home form domestically. Benfica are just too good for them in my opinion and much like the game in Turkey – will want to leave with some away goals in the bag.
Check out yesterday’s Champions League pick where nailed all 3 of my bets.
I don’t see them losing today so here are my picks:
Pick 1: Benfica to Win (+145)
Pick 2: Benfica Wins DNB (-163)

Sticking with the NFL on Saturday worked out for us, so let’s give it another try. San Francisco heads to Denver and both starting quarterbacks are expected to see some action. It probably won’t be for long, which will likely have an effect on our outcome. * Increase your bookie business 10 times, all while Read More…
I dipped into this series on Friday night, and although it didn’t come easy, I took the Giants +126 for the win. The Giants had a 7-2 lead going into the bottom of the 8th, only to allow 5 runs in the bottom of the 8th. Neither team scored in the 9th, both scored two Read More…
The NFL has been tough on me lately, but I’m going to stick with it for Saturday’s pick. In Week 15 of the 2019 regular season, Dallas and the L.A. Rams will meet in a game that will likely have playoff implications. This preseason Week 2 game is much less important, but it does have Read More…
