Chelsea vs. Malmo odds, picks, how to watch, live stream: Oct. 20 UEFA Champions League predictions

Chelsea will try to bounce back after losing its last 2021-22 UEFA Champions League group stage match when it hosts Malmo on Wednesday. The Blues fell 1-0 to Juventus in September, but should have an easier go of it against a Malmo squad that not only ranks fourth in Group H, but is also dead last of the 32 teams left standing in the Champions League. The Swedish team has lost both of its contests, and its goal differential of minus-seven is the worst in the 2021-22 Champions League table. These teams have met twice before, both in 2019, and Chelsea was victorious in each game.

Wednesday’s match has a 3 p.m. ET kickoff from Stamford Bridge in London. The latest Chelsea vs. Malmo odds list Chelsea as the -1200 favorite (bet $1200 to win $100), while Malmo is a +3900 underdog. A draw is priced at +1000, while the over-under is 3.5 goals. Wednesday’s match will be streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

UEFA Champions League picks for Chelsea vs. Malmo

Before you tune in to Wednesday’s match, you need to see the Chelsea vs. Malmo picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season. He’s also been red-hot on his Champions League picks since joining SportsLine. In fact, Green is on a blistering 86-53-5 run on his UCL best bets. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

For Chelsea vs. Malmo, Green is backing Chelsea to cover the -2.5 spread at -110 odds. Thus, he’s picking Chelsea to win by at least three goals with a $110 wager winning $100. Three of Chelsea’s seven wins this season have been by three goals, and that includes its schedule in both the Premier League and Champions League group matches.

Both Chelsea and Malmo sit atop their respective domestic leagues, but the level of competition between the Premier League and the Allsvenskan are worlds apart. While Malmo has dominated Sweden’s first division, the squad hasn’t been able to hold its own when venturing outside league competition. Malmo has lost its last three Champions League games with only one total goal scored but nine goals allowed. Malmo lost by at least three goals in each of its first two Group H matches, falling 3-0 to Juventus and then 4-0 to Zenit.

Also, one of Malmo’s top defenders, Anel Ahmedhodzic, was sent off in the last match and will miss Wednesday’s clash versus Chelsea. Ahmedhodzic has been one of the reasons for Malmo’s strong play in the Allsvenskan, as he ranks second in the league in plus/minus. His absence is a strong sign for star striker Romelu Lukaku to break out of his goal drought.

“Romelu Lukaku has now gone six games without scoring for Chelsea, so he will be desperate to end that barren spell,” Green told SportsLine. “A game against a weak Malmö defense is a golden opportunity to do just that.”
