Matchday 3 of the 2021-22 UEFA Europa League group stage will begin on Wednesday when Leicester City of the English Premier League visits Spartak Moscow of the Russian Premier League. Entering the season, Leicester City was the second favorite behind only Italian Serie A giants Napoli to win the continent's second most prestigious club trophy. When the two sides wound up in the same group, many assumed they'd battle for the guaranteed spot in the knockout rounds. Instead, those two clubs are on the bottom of the Group C UEFA Europa League table with one point, while Legia Warsaw is on top with six.
Wednesday's match has a 10:30 a.m. ET kick-off from Otkritie Arena in Moscow. The latest Leicester City vs. Spartak Moscow odds list Leicester as the -115 favorite (bet $115 to win $100), while Spartak is a +330 underdog and a draw is +270. The over-under is 2.5 goals. Wednesday's match will be streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

UEFA Europa League picks for Leicester City vs. Spartak Moscow
Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the Leicester City vs. Spartak Moscow 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 Leicester City vs. Spartak Moscow, Green is backing Leicester City to win on the 90-minute money line for a -115 payout. Leicester began its Europa League campaign by playing a strong starting 11 and battling to a 2-2 draw with Napoli on Matchday 1, but manager Brendan Rodgers took his foot off the gas by resting a number of key players in Matchday 2 against Legia Warsaw and wound up losing 1-0.
On Saturday, Leicester showed exactly how taxing its attack can be in a 4-2 win over Manchester United. If stars like Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho and James Maddison are fit to go, Spartak Moscow may be overpowered.
Iheanacho and Maddison were both subbed of on Saturday, and substitutes Ayoze Perez and Patson Daka proved they could be dangerous going forward. Perez had two assists in 18 minutes and Daka found the back of the net despite playing just 14 minutes. While a few changes might be possible after a taxing match on Saturday, Green likes Leicester to win and keep its Europa League title hopes alive.
