Tottenham and Manchester United 4/1 for Champions League glory

Tottenham and Manchester United take to the Champions League stage tomorrow evening and Sky Bet are offering 4/1 for both sides to come out victorious.

Harry Redknapp's Tottenham side host Dutch champions FC Twente while Manchester United travel to Spain to take on Valencia. It's 10/11 for the Spurs to outscore United tomorrow (19/10 Man Utd and 3/1 Tie) and 11/10 for the Tottenham v FC Twente match to contain more goals than the Valencia v United match (11/8 Valencia v Man Utd and 7/2 Tie).

Can Tottenham overcome Dutch champions FC Twente?

Tottenham, who are missing key players and only have one recognised defender in Sebastian Bassong available, are 8/11 to overcome FC Twente (4/1 FC Twente and 5/2 Draw).

After a lacklustre performance against Rangers in their opening group match, Manchester United will be hoping to bounce back against Valencia but they travel to Spain without Wayne Rooney, who is still suffering with an ankle injury. It's 9/5 for United to come away from the Estadio Mestalla with maximum points (6/4 Valencia and 9/4 Draw).

Sky Bet's Tim Reynolds said: "Tottenham and Manchester United face tough fixtures tomorrow and with both teams missing key players they will have to be at their very best if they are going to claim victory."

Packers eased in Super Bowl betting

Sky Bet have eased the Green Bay Packers to 15/2 (from 13/2) for the Super Bowl after suffering their first defeat on Monday night.

The Packers went down 20-17 to Chicago Bears thanks to a Robbie Gould 19-yard field goal with just four seconds left. The Bears, who are now 3-0 for the season, are 18/1 (from 28/1) for Super Bowl glory.

Indianapolis are the 8/1 second favourites with defending champions New Orleans next best at 19/2.

Sky Bet's NFL expert Phil Charlton said: "The two favourites in the Super Bowl betting going into Week 3 were both beaten, which has now thrown the competition wide open. We've seen some good money for Green Bay in recent weeks and they represent the worst result in our book. Probably the most impressive performance of the week was Atlanta's victory against the defending Super Bowl champions New Orleans, which saw them cut to 12/1 from 20/1."

Arsenal and Chelsea cut in Champions League betting

Arsenal and Chelsea have both been cut by Sky Bet in the betting to win the Champions League after victories on Tuesday.

The English pair bounced back from weekend defeats in the Barclays Premier League to maintain their perfect records in Europe.

Arsenal (10/1 from 11/1) beat Partizan Belgrade 3-1 in Serbia, with goals from Andrei Arshavin, Maroune Chamakh and Sebastien Squillaci, while Lukasz Fabianski saved a late penalty.

Chelsea are joint-second favourites with the online betting company at 9/2 (from 5/1) after John Terry and Nicolas Anelka found the net at Stamford Bridge against Marseille.

Real Madrid are also 9/2 after defeating Auxerre 1-0, while last season's finalists Bayern Munich can be backed at 14/1 after their 2-1 over Basel.
