UEFA Champions League picks for Ajax vs. Rangers
Before you tune in to Wednesday’s match, you need to see the UEFA Champions League picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. He is 31-17-1 on his Premier League picks for SportsLine in 2022, for a profit of more than $1,200 for $100 bettors, and he is 13-7 on his last 20 soccer picks overall.
For Ajax vs. Rangers, Eimer is picking both teams to score for a -140 payout. The expert notes that it is difficult to determine how Rangers will respond to the difficult loss they sustained in league play. Will they rebound and fight hard against Ajax, or sulk and find themselves in a slump across all competition?
The other question is how this current Ajax team will fare in Champions League play. While the Dutch side has been successful in Champions League play in recent years, they enter this year’s tournament with a new manager and without key pieces they had in the past.
“Their top scorer, Sebastian Haller, was traded to Dortmund to replace Erling Haaland, while they also separated ways with Mazraoui and Gravenberch to Bayern Munich and, at the last breath of the summer transfer period, we also saw them sell Antony to Manchester United for a staggering 95 million euros,” Eimer told SportsLine. “So much movement makes this a tricky spot to bet, because while Ajax is still the favorite, we’re not used to seeing them in these type of competitions without all these players available.” Stream the match now here.
