UEFA Champions League best bets for second leg of the quarterfinals

The first leg of the quarterfinals saw Bayern Munich and Liverpool stumble the most. Bayern's SPI chances to advance dropped from 67% to 29% after a 3-2 home loss to PSG, and Liverpool's odds fell from 53% to 20% after a 3-1 defeat in Madrid.

Chelsea's 2-0 "away" win over Porto (both legs are in Seville) bumped the Blues' chances of reaching the semis to 99%, and Manchester City's projection (84%) barely moved after a 2-1 home win over Dortmund.

I don't know that we truly learned much about any of the teams in the first leg, so these plays echo several of my first-leg thoughts. As always, with the possibility of extra time in the second leg, remember that bets are for 90 minutes unless otherwise indicated.
