There’s no better way to bounce back from a humiliating defeat than winning in your UEFA Champions League debut. That’s what AC Milan hopes to do on Tuesday, but it won’t be easy against Newcastle, a resurgent team with talent to spare. Let’s see which are the best Champion League bets on Sept. 19.

Before Tuesday’s meeting, AC Milan and Newcastle experienced extremely different emotions. AC Milan experienced humiliation, sadness and confusion after losing 5-1 to Inter Milan. They never stood a chance after Inter scored the opener only five minutes into the game.
Newcastle, who won the soccer game on Saturday, experienced anxiety, joy, and relief after defeating Brentford 1-0 thanks to Callum Wilson, who scored from the penalty spot. That victory allowed them to put an end to a three-game losing streak.
Now, before losing the Derby Della Madonnina, AC Milan won its first three Serie A games with an 8-2 aggregate. This team has talent to spare, with Luka Jovic, Noah Okafor, Samuel Chukwueze and Yunus Musah usually coming off the bench.
Therefore, I expect AC Milan to put up a much better fight against Newcastle and not lose. That’s right, I expect this contest to finish with a draw, which is offering a +250 price in our Champion League odds.
This is what it’s all about…..
This is Football.
This is St James’ Park.
This is Newcastle United!

Betting on the Total
Although I think the match will end with a draw, I also believe both teams will score. These two teams have great offensive talent. AC Milan’s attacking unit includes Rafael Leao, Christian Pulisic and Olivier Giroud. Newcastle’s attacking unit includes Wilson, Alexander Isak, Anthony Gordon, and Harrison Barnes.
In addition, AC Milan averages two goals per game, while Newcastle averages 1.6. So you can expect goals. However, don’t expect this contest to turn into a goal-fest. Both have struggled a bit under pressure, and the first match of the UCL Group Stage means a lot of it.
I like a 1-1 draw, which offers a +550 price as the correct score. According to the payout calculator, you can win $550 per every $100 wagered.
You can also wager on the game total to go under since it’s set at 2½ goals. The under is offering a +105 price.

Best AC Milan vs Newcastle Prop Bets
Playing at home means AC Milan must take the reins right from the start, which is why I expect them to score first and win the first half. If you bet on AC Milan-Draw for Halftime-Fulltime, you will have the chance to win $1200 for every $100 wagered. That’s among the best soccer bets of the week!
You can also bet on Newcastle scoring last, which is offering a -105 price. The Magpies scored last in three of their previous five matches.
Individually, Callum Wilson is offering a +210 price to score at any time. That’s a very good deal since he’s the team’s top scorer with three goals. However, I like Alexander Isak at +185 better. The Swedish didn’t play against Brentford, meaning he’ll be at 100% and is a better fit to rely on the counterattack.
Well played yesterday, @CallumWilson! 💪

As for AC Milan, Olivier Giroud is the favorite at +175. Go with the Frenchman since he’s the team’s top scorer with four goals.
