UEFA Champions League picks for Atletico Madrid vs. Lazio

Before you tune in to Tuesday's match, you need to see the Champions League picks from betting expert Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for more than five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. 

For Lazio vs. Atletico Madrid, Sutton is playing Under 2.5 total goals for a -120 payout. Atletico Madrid had a seven-goal outburst against Rayo Vallecano and also had a 3-1 win over Granada in their season-opener.

However, they were shut out in their other two matches, including a 3-0 loss against Valencia over the weekend. Meanwhile, Lazio is off to an extremely sluggish start, losing three of their first four Serie A matches, including a 1-0 loss to Genoa in their only home match so far this season.

These are the two favorites to qualify for the knockout stages from Group E and they'll likely feel each other out in this UCL opener. That's a big reason why Sutton is expecting a low-scoring battle in Rome on Tuesday. Stream the game here.
