TODAY'S BEST BET | OCTOBER 20
We’re heading to the Champions League for today’s best bet as Bayern Munich look to continue their incredible run of form against Benfica.
Bayern are unbeaten in their last 19 Champions League away matches, winning 15 and drawing four, which is a competition record.
The German heavyweights have scored a whopping 54 goals during that period, with their last defeat in such fixtures coming all the way back in 2017.
Additionally, Bayern have scored three or more goals in nine of their 11 matches this season – including a last-start 5-1 crushing of Bayer Leverkusen in what was a top-of-the-table Bundesliga showdown.
As a result, we’ll be backing Bayern with a -1 handicap here.
Bayern are averaging a total of 3.2 goals per Champions League game since the start of last season, which is the best in the competition.
If Bayern can maintain that average, they are a great chance of covering the -1 handicap.
Bayern have current form on the board as well – they’ve won eight of their last nine games by two goals or more.
Robert Lewandowksi has been on fire too, with the Polish striker having scored 15 goals in his 11 competitive matches this season, while he’s also netted five goals in six previous matches vs Portuguese teams.
All signs point to another comfortable win for Bayern on Wednesday night.
