UEFA Champions League final: Best bets for Man City vs. Chelsea

For the second time in three years, the UEFA Champions League final features two English teams, Manchester City and Chelsea. In the 2019 final, Liverpool scored early and late to beat Tottenham 2-0.

This final looks to be similarly low-scoring, as suggested by the two previous City-Chelsea matchups in the past six weeks: a 1-0 Chelsea win in the FA Cup semifinals and a 2-1 Chelsea win in league play.

Here are my favorite plays for the biggest club game of the year. As always, remember that bets are for 90 minutes plus stoppage time, unless otherwise noted.

Manchester City (-225) vs. Chelsea (+175)

3 p.m. ET Saturday at the Estádio do Dragão in Porto, Portugal

Take the under

Let’s get the obvious pick out of the way: Take the under on -2.5. Again. This line opened around -140 and is now at -160, and I’ll still play it there, though not much lower.
