Winners:  SHK vs. MCI

Clayton Kershaw came through on Sunday as the Dodgers beat the Giants 3-1, and we finally reached the ‘triple money’ plateau. Good times and hopefully more to come.

Now to today.

Today, Shakhtar Donetsk visits Manchester City in more UEFA Champions League action. Shaktar is coming off a 2-1 upset victory over Napoli in the first group game at home. Napoli should be co-favorites with Manchester City to get out of the group. Manchester City will be ready for this team today and with its recent form, having not lost a game since a friendly match in August. City has outscored its last five opponents 22-1. That’s amazing no matter who you’re playing. Manchester City happens to play in what I believe to be the most difficult week-in-week-out league in the world, the Premier League. Here’s how we’ll bet it.

  • Pick 1: Manchester City -600 (Bet $120 to win $20.40)
  • Pick 2: Draw +675 (Bet $18 to win $121.50)

Manchester City should win this game but we’ll play the draw just to be safe. I don’t want to jinx this, but I can’t see how City loses this game. Knowing it still has to play Napoli twice, City will want to win this game.

Fingers crossed.
