Champions League Favourites

Manchester City

Manchester City Champions League betting

It looks like the bookies have got Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City down as favourites to take this year’s Champions League title. Big spending City have had their eyes on the ultimate prize for some time now. Not merely satisfied with Premier League silverware, City see the Champions League not only as a mark of intent but as a status symbol - one that they hope will propel them into footballing royalty.

Will it be their year this year?

City have fallen short with every manager up to date, only managing to grace the semi-finals in the competition’s 2015-16 campaign. But this time round Guardiola has been building on an already lavishly endowed outfit. Will it be their year this year?

Barcelona

Barcelona champions league betting

The bookies have got Barcelona as second favourites to take the Champions League trophy back to Catalonia. They last won it back in 2015 after beating Juventus in Berlin. Barcelona have dominated Spanish domestic football over the last decade but have come up short behind bitter rivals Real Madrid in Europe’s premier footballing competition.

Ernesto Valverde and his star-powered strike force of Lionel Messi, Philippe Coutinho, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele will be looking to get the job done this time round after a surprising demolition at the hands of Roma last season. This year could be theres.

Juventus

Juventus champions league betting

The Italian outfit have been the talk of the town since before the World Cup had even come to close. Why? All down to one man - Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Following his third successive Champions League title win with Real Madrid last year he made a shock switch to the Italian giants.

Will big money man Ronaldo make the difference

Juventus have come close to Champions League success over recent seasons, losing finals to behemoths Barcelona in 2015 and to Real Madrid in 2017, despite not laying down huge swathes of cash in the transfer market. Will big money man Ronaldo make the difference for the Old Lady of Turin? It wouldn’t be surprising.

PSG

PSG Champions League betting

Like their northern rivals Manchester City, PSG are attempting to rewrite an otherwise unremarkable history until as of late. The Champions League has been the trophy to consistently alude them despite spending big, most recently shelling out gigantic sums for the likes of Kylian Mbappé and Neymar.

Despite their consistent outlays PSG haven’t yet made it to a Champions League final, but it seems the bookies think it could well be their year this year. PSG have dominated domestically, winning back to back cups and league titles, but it won’t be until they clinch this one that the rest of the world is liable to take them seriously.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid champions league betting

The big boys from the Spanish capital have had one up on everyone else since the beginning of the competition in the 1950s. Rightly or wrongly Los Blancos see this as their competition, and many have accused them of sacrificing league form to prioritise it. Despite Madrid making history by being the first team in the modern era to successfully defend a Champions League title only to follow it with three in a row, the bookies have got them as measly fourth favourites this time round.

You can never, ever write them off

The reasoning? Mostly twofold. They’ve lost their star man in Ronaldo, who made all the difference in the knockout stages last season. The team looked like it lacked a spark or a catalyst and they struggled their way through at times. The second reason? Performances have been dipping. Madrid look like they need a bit of a rebuild in certain areas but you can never, ever write them off.

Liverpool

Liverpool Champions League betting

Liverpool have got their season off to a flying start, but can the Scousers win a back to back double in Europe?

Manchester City are once again being touted as favourites to pick the Champions League for the third season in a row, but it's Liverpool who've proven they can go all the way.

Will Liverpool prioritise the league instead this year?

Jürgen Klopp has kept his squad in tact over the summer and they really do look like the real deal. The big question is whether after nearly three decades without a domestic league title, will Liverpool prioritise the league instead this year?

Champions League Betting

It’s no wonder that the Champions League is one of the most popular football competitions to bet on. Champions League betting is among the most attractive competitions for football punters simply because of the quality, the excitement it generates, and unpredictability of the football - pitting the top teams from Europe’s best against each other season after season.

Betting sites strive to give punters what they want

The Champions League is one of the most popular football competitions in the world, and gets people all over the globe glued to their TV sets. Due to its high level of popularity, many betting sites strive to offer a wide range of Champions League odds to give the people and the punters what they want. 

There's something for everyone at every stage of the competition

As the Champions League draw for the group stage is seeded, ranking teams according to their overall quality, you can often be assured that the teams drawn into each group are fairly evenly matched. But that doesn’t mean it’s all done and dusted for the big boys - surprises can and often do happen. Many unexpected teams can often make it to the knockout stages on the back of a run of good form, and playing away from home is much more of a mixed bag than in the domestic league. This year in particular there are already a number of mouthwatering contests between teams from the four big leagues of England, Italy, Spain and Germany drawn against each other at such an early stage in the tournament. There’s something for everyone at every stage of the competition.

Now we have an idea of why the Champions League is such a big deal, let’s look at some of the most popular types of Champions League betting there is on offer.

Champions League Betting: Full Time Result

It goes without saying that one of the most popular forms of Champions League betting, as in all forms of football betting, is betting on the full time result of a match. In that respect Champions League betting is no different.

Betting on the full time result, or “match odds” will mostly likely be the first type of Champions League betting market you come into contact with when you enter a betting site and look for Champions League betting odds.

Be sure to scout out our tips ahead of any Champions League game for all the opinions, info and inspiration you’ll need

Champions League betting on the full time result can often be a touch more unpredictable than betting on match odds for domestic leagues, and there’s a simple reason for it. Teams that qualify for the group stage often don’t meet one another as frequently as in their domestic leagues. It’s really a meeting of different cultures, potentially obscure tactics as well as unfamiliar players and formations. This naturally will raise the market odds and it’ll mean you’ll have to do a bit more homework, but it really makes Champions League betting more exciting and unpredictable for a lot of punters. 

When it comes to the knockout stages, especially as it gets closer to the final, there is often more familiarity between teams who are usually pitted against each other from Europe’s top leagues, although surprises can happen. That’s not to say that Champions League betting gets any less exciting. Games are played over two legs (home and away) and due to the high quality of the teams, it’s really anyone’s guess.

It’s always good to have look through a number of sites to get the best bets for your bucks

If you’re interested in this type of Champions League betting market you’ll have the most options to choose from. It’s always good to have look through a number of sites to get the best bets for your bucks.

Our Champions League betting tips writers love this kind of bet, so be sure to scout out our tips ahead of any Champions League game for all the opinions, info and inspiration you’ll need - not to mention the best Champions League betting odds on the market.

Champions League Betting: Half Time/Full Time Result

Similar to betting on the full time result, placing a wager on both the half time and full time result is often a popular type of Champions League betting that punters aim for.

Betting on both the half time and full time result basically means you’re betting on what you think the match result will be at the end of both halves - so what the result will be going into half and what the final match result will be at full time.

You'll often find our Champions League betting tips writers all over this type of bet

Why do punters who are interested in Champions League betting go for this type of bet? One of the most common reasons is that they’re confident they know how the match will play out. Another good reason for this type of bet is to raise the value of the odds. With two variables at play the Champions League odds will rise, but it’s best to do more research and delve into the stats to see what type of form teams experience overall, but also throughout the whole 90 minutes.

Betting on the half time and full time result is a popular form of Champions League betting and you’ll often find our Champions League betting tips writers all over this type of bet for both the group stage and knockout stages of the competition.

Champions League Betting: Number of Goals in a Match

A popular alternative to betting on the match odds is to bet on the number of goals that will be scored in a match. There’s no doubt that this is a popular option for punters interested in Champions League betting. 

This type of Champions League betting should definitely be on your radar

Over the last couple of seasons the average goals scored in a match has skyrocketed and in turn the odds for this type of Champions League betting market should have a little more value in them for some games. The more the unpredictability, the more value in the odds. There are some standout teams and some experienced underdogs in the Champions League this year. This type of Champions League betting should definitely be on your radar.

Champions League betting is so popular that punters can enjoy a massive amount of markets for each match

This type of Champions League betting market is arguably the most popular type of Champions League betting market next to betting on the match odds/full time result. Many betting sites will offer Champions League betting odds for this type of bet, so make sure you scour the net to find the value. It’s not uncommon for our Champions League betting tips writers to favour this type of bet either.

Due to the popularity of the competition it’s highly likely that the majority of betting sites will offer Champions League betting odds for the number of goals in a match. It’s also possible in some cases in Champions League betting to place a wager on the amount of goals each team will score in a match, or even how many corners, throw ins or cards there will be.
