Winners: RIJ vs. MIL

Welcome back. Manchester City took care of business Tuesday giving us another win and moving our streak to nine in a row, and 36 of 38 overall. For those of you who prefer metrics, that’s a 94.7% success rate. That’s pretty good no matter what you do.

Let’s move to today.

Today, HNK Rijeka visits AC Milan today in more Europa League action. Rijeka, from the Croatian League, is 3-1-1 in its last five games. However, it did lose its first Europa League game 2-1 to AEK Athens. I’m not aware of any of its players. On the other hand, Serie A giants AC Milan come into today’s game 3-2 in its last five games, including a 2-0 loss to Sampdoria last weekend. Milan will want to rebound after a difficult lost. Milan’s roster is far more talented than Rijeka but you don’t win games on paper. Here’s how we’ll bet.  

  • Pick 1: AC Milan -385 (Bet $100 to win $26)
  • Pick 2: Draw +450 (Bet $23 to win $103.50)

AC Milan should not lose this game. They won the first Europa League game 5-1. As large a gap as there is for the top 16 teams in the Champions League, the same gap exists for the top 16 teams in the Europa League. I expect Milan to handle business and get ready for the weekend.

Fingers crossed.
