UEFA Europa League picks for Benfica vs. Rangers

Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Europa League picks from betting expert 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 last year’s World Cup, Green has been profitable in multiple areas on his soccer picks, including the Champions League (+4.78 units), the FA Cup (+3.07), the EFL Cup (+3.64), Euro 2024 qualifiers (+3.01) and the Europa League (+1.60).

For Rangers vs. Benfica, Green is picking both teams to score and Over 2.5 goals to be scored for a -130. The expert admits the second leg of this competition is difficult to call given that Benfica are objectively a better team but couldn’t get the win at home, and that Ibrox is hard building on visitors. However, he thinks Thursday’s game will be a high-scoring one since both teams have leaky defenses.

Green expects Benfica star Angel Di Maria to be a factor in Thursday’s game, while the Scottish hosts fight to score and keep up with him.

“It will be difficult for Rangers to shackle Di María for 90 minutes, so they may simply need to outgun Benfica by taking risks and trying to fire in a few goals,” Green told SportsLine. Stream the match here.
