Bayer Leverkusen vs. Rangers, 12:55 p.m. on CBS All Access -- Bayarena

1. Sevilla vs. Roma
Sevilla is the odds-on favorite to win the match at +110, so there is some value there in Roma at +240. Remember, this is a match at a neutral venue, and Sevilla hasn't played since July 19. Roma has played four matches since then, all of them Serie A wins including a 3-1 victory over Juventus last time out. While Sevilla's defense is strong, it can at times lack discipline, and Roma's attack with Edin Dzeko and Nicolo Zaniolo has the versatility to win. This would be no upset, and the Italian side has a strong chance of advancing. PICK: ROMA WIN (+240)

2. Wolves vs. Olympiacos
This is a second-leg affair after a 1-1 draw in Greece. Wolves are undefeated at home in Europa League since the shock 1-0 loss to Braga in September, and they have taken a first-half lead in both their last two Europa League home matches and their last two games there overall. There is a tad of pressure on this side to make a run in this competition in search of European qualification, and the expectation is for Nuno Espirito Santo's team to take an early lead and control the match. PICK: WOLVES 1ST HALF (+145)

3. Basel vs. Eintracht Frankfurt
Basel leads the tie 3-0 after the first leg, and Eintracht Frankfurt needs a miracle on Thursday. They are going to go forward in numbers early and often, and they probably get a goal or two. Eintracht Frankfurt's defense is also quite poor, conceding 60 times in 34 Bundesliga matches. With Basel rested, expect them to be a bit rusty and for neither team to find the winner. PICK: DRAW (+270)
