4/6 UCL DFS Breakdown

 

The Clean Sheet returns for the Champion’s League Round of Eight and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s time to separate the men from the boys.

 

Dortmund (+700) at Manchester City (-250) – 3 Total Goals

 

Manchester City has the EPL title on lock and at times has looked unstoppable. While young sensation Erling Haaland might make for a strong prop bet “see below”, I don’t know if he is the wisest choice for daily fantasy. He will likely be seeing his share of double teams if Pep Guardiola has his way.

 

Liverpool (+155) at Real Madrid (+170) – 3.3 Total Goals

 

A rematch of the 2018 Champion’s League Final, both of these teams have had a rough year by either’s usual standards. For Real Madrid, with their age, this is a real last stand. As for Liverpool, I give them the slight edge and the oddsmakers agree. However, they have been anything but easy to trust this season, as it is proven hard to replicate the success of the prior two seasons.

*Erling Haaland to Score – 0.25 Units – (+190 DraftKings Sportsbook), (+185 FanDuel Sportsbook)*

 

The unstoppable force meets the immovable object, as Erling Haaland and Dortmund clash with Manchester City. You will practically never see Haaland with lower goal-scoring odds than this.
