UEFA Champions League picks for Manchester United vs. Atalanta

Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the Manchester United vs. Atalanta 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 Manchester United vs. Atalanta, Green is taking Ronaldo to score at -125 odds. In his return to Manchester United, Ronaldo has scored three goals in just five matches, as he was a late arrival to the team after leaving Juventus. But Ronaldo has been as effective as ever in creating scoring opportunities and leads the Premier League with 4.80 shots per 90 minutes.

He also ranks second in shots on target per 90 minutes, which suggests he's simply been unlucky in not netting more goals. Ronaldo has scored in both of the Red Devils' Champions League matches this season and you can't overlook his work with the Portugal National Team. Over his last two World Cup qualifiers, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has scored five goals to pace Portugal.

Atalanta is the type of team to help Ronaldo continue his scoring prowess. It's always been more focused on the attacking third than the defensive third and Atalanta has allowed six goals over its last three Serie A contests. Playing at Old Trafford will also give Ronaldo a boost since he loves giving the home fans a show. Throughout all competitions this year, Ronaldo has scored nine goals through seven home games.
