UEFA Europa League picks for Barcelona vs. Napoli

Before you tune in to Tuesday's match, you need to see the Napoli vs. Barcelona picks from SportsLine's 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 well over $37,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.

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 Barcelona vs. Napoli, Green is betting Barcelona to win with a draw resulting in no bet for a -110 payout. The first match at Camp Nou last week ended in a draw, but a more detailed look reveals that it was a match Barcelona largely dominated. The Spanish club had 67 percent of possession and took 20 shots, while Napoli only managed four.

The new attacking trio of Ferran Torres, Pierre-Emrick Aubameyang and Adama Traore gave Barcelona fans plenty to be excited about. All three took shots in the match and Torres was able to get into the scoring column with a 59th-minute penalty kick. He finished with a total of eight shots.

In La Liga play, Barcelona beat Valencia 4-1 last Sunday with Aubameyang scoring a hat trick. Meanwhile, Napoli is coming off a 1-1 draw against 18th-place Cagliari in Serie A.
