Both Teams To Score
Simple bets are often the best and BTTS in the 2020 Champions League final is certainly one to consider. DraftKings has both teams to score at -286.
Both teams have scored in eight of the last nine Champions League finals, with Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Tottenham last year the only exception during that period.
Now, don’t expect this final to be a goal-fest simply because the likelihood of both teams scoring is high. After all, there has been an average of 3.08 goals scored in the Champions League final since 2008 —and only once has a team won with a three-goal advantage.
However, BTTS remains a strong bet with DraftKings.

Plenty Of Yellow Cards
Betting on cards in soccer can be an easy way to secure a win if you know which games are likely to be feisty. And this Champions League final should see plenty of bookings.
After all, players are exhausted after a marathon 13-month season and are playing in the heat of the Portuguese summer. This can cause lapses in concentration, which leads to mistakes and late tackles. What’s more, it’s all or nothing when it comes to a Final. and players must be willing to do the dirty work in order to stop the opposition.
Odds on +5.5 yellow cards being brandished by Italian referee Daniele Orsato are available at +110 with DraftKings.
Draw To Force Extra Time
Bayern and PSG may be supremely dominant in their own domestic leagues, but when it comes to European football both sides have perfected the art of defending. PSG has conceded just five Champions League goals all season, while Bayern has let in eight during the same period.
It means that while we may witness a goal apiece on Sunday, that might be all fans can expect over the initial 90 minutes. PSG may be the more cautious side in its first Champions League final, while Bayern will likely take the game steady.
A draw to force extra time is available at +300 with BetMGM, and it wouldn’t be surprising if this deliriously long soccer season goes on for another 30 minutes.

Mbappe vs Lewandowski
Neymar may be the most expensive soccer player on the planet, but the attention here is on his teammate, Kylian Mbappe, and opposition striker Robert Lewandowski.
Mbappe boasts 29 goals for the season and proved in the World Cup final two years ago that he is the man to score on big occasions. He is +525 to score first on Sunday— yet Lewandowski is the favorite at +310. The reason for that is the Poland international has remained the fulcrum of Bayern’s attacking unit for the past six years and has scored in each of his last 10 outings. That totals 14 goals since late May, including four from three Champions League fixtures.
At -148 with FOX Bet to score at any time, Lewandowski is as close to a guarnatee as you can get.

Di Maria Assist
No player has provided more assists in the Champions League this season than Angel Di Maria (6, joined with Lewandowski). The Argentine earned two assists and scored in the 3-0 semifinal victory over RB Leipzig.
Amazingly, since his debut for PSG back in 2015, Di Maria has provided more assists in all competitions (88) than any player in Europe, bar Lionel Messi (101). He is a great price at +220 with FOX Bet to grab an assist here.
