2022 UEFA Champions League Final odds, prediction: Liverpool vs. Real Madrid

Published

on

We’re only hours away from the Super Bowl of global soccer.

Liverpool, the 2019 Champions League winners, will battle 13-time European Cup winners Real Madrid in the 2022 UEFA Champions League final at the Stade de France in Paris. The former arrives as a consensus favorite for the match with most books hovering between +100 and +110 for the first 90 minutes.

In terms of the “to lift the trophy” odds, Liverpool are -160 with Real Madrid +120 on the comeback.

With that said, here are my best bets for Saturday’s final.

2022 UEFA Championship League Final prediction and picks

Best Bet #1 – Liverpool Moneyline (+105)

Odds via BetMGM

There are two outcomes for this match – either Liverpool cruise or Madrid prove a team of destiny.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti’s side has played with nine lives in this tournament and has continuously escaped from hopeless positions. That luck is represented wildly in its underlying metrics. In eight UCL fixtures – two group matches against Inter and six knockout round matches – has a +6 goal differential (extra time included). However, it’s expected goal differential in those eight matches is -3.1, per fbref.com.

Just in its last six UCL fixtures, the luck has continued to show for Real Madrid. Even if you take out the extra time sessions against Chelsea and Manchester City, Real has a +1 goal differential against a -1.5 expected goal difference. It has also faced at least a two-goal aggregate deficit in all three knockout rounds.

On the flip-side, Liverpool actually arrives at the final a candidate for positive regression. In its six knockout round matches, manager Jurgen Klopp’s side has posted a +6 goal differential against a +7.5 expected goal difference, again per fbref.com. Plus, despite dropping points in two of six knockout fixtures, Liverpool has won all six on expected goals.

Plus, for all the narratives suggesting Liverpool are playing tired, it’s certainly not showing offensively. Dating back to the second leg against Inter Milan, Liverpool has created 1.95 xG/90 minutes in 16 combined EPL + UCL fixtures. That will be an issue for a Real Madrid defense that has allowed north of 1.8 xG/90 minutes in its last 15 La Liga + UCL fixtures.

For all those reasons, I have Liverpool projected at -160 for the first 90 minutes and am happy to take a shot in plus-money. Although I doubt it’ll drop low enough, I’d also back Liverpool to lift the trophy at -150 or better.

Mohamed Salah Anytime Goalscorer (+145)

Odds via Fanduel Sportsbook

Not only is this match a revenge spot for Liverpool, who lost the 2018 Champions League Final 3-1 to Real Madrid, but it’s also a mini revenge spot for Salah.

The Egypt international exited that final after taking a nasty challenge from then-Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, forcing him to the sidelines for the defeat. And as we know now, revenge is on Salah’s mind.

Like his team, Salah is also a positive regression candidate entering Saturday’s final. In just his last six Champions League appearances, he’s scored only once on 2.4 expected goals. Although that goal drought may concern some bettors, Salah did notch seven tallies in the group stage.

Plus, wingers have had their way against Real Madrid in the Champions League. In examining the four fixtures against PSG & Manchester City – two sides that play the same formation as Liverpool — attacking wingers accounted for four of seven Real concessions, five if you include a goal from Bernardo Silva, a wide midfielder.

Lastly, Real Madrid don’t possess much strength at the full-back position. Left-back Ferland Mendy and right-back Dani Carvajal combine to rank in the bottom-half globally in nine of 12 key defensive categories (Mendy ranks out in the bottom-32 percent in all six).

If Salah lines up against Mendy, expect utter domination. Even if he lines up against Carvajal, expect him to give the Spaniard problems the way Kylian Mbappe did in the round of 16.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
