Champions League Outright Betting
Pick an outright winner for the Champions League and see if you are correct. Sounds simple, but the tournament has been known to throw up some surprises. Giants of the game can get caught in the knockout stages, sometimes one below-par performance is all it takes. Real Madrid have won it 3 times in a row, but it is rare for a team to have such a successful run.
UEFA Champions League title betting is one of the most popular football betting markets in the world- everyone has an opinion on it at the start of the season and those opinions change or get louder as the tournament progresses! The European heavyweights will usually be in the mix - Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool and Juventus. But don’t discount the plucky outsiders like Atletico Madrid, Ajax or Roma. You can bet on the outright winner and the Champions League final throughout the tournament, but the most favourable odds will be found at the start. This is the time to back your unfancied outsider at decent odds. As the results flow in, the odds change, and new markets pop up- there’s value at every turn so best to follow the action for the duration.
UEFA CL Knockout Stages Betting
This is when things really hot up- a lot of the weaker teams are gone at this point and the draw tends to bring about some even match-ups as well as some very high-profile games. Don’t get too dazzled by the big teams as there often great value markets to be found in the lower profile games. A game like Ajax v FC Porto may be less popular in terms of viewing figures but it may also have markets that the other games don’t offer.
There is usually some unexpected result at these stages too, so punters willing to take a risk and back an underdog can have a good day during the knockout stages. Game intensity goes up too, the losers are out so there is a lot more at stake- this is where you’ll find betting markets like number of cards, corners, correct score odds and half-time betting.
This stage is also good for getting back on track when you have not done so well in the Group stages. That is the beauty of the Champions League, there’s always another game, another shot at redemption, another potential payout. Extra time and penalties feature in the knockout stages so even more markets open up.
Champions League Groups Betting
The Champions League group stages sometimes get overlooked but with so many quality teams across Europe involved in the competition, big names are bound to be paired and this will lead to some interesting betting markets. Also, the latter stages of the groups often feature teams who are desperate for qualification points, so some games are crucial.
You will also find some nice odds here on a big name slipping up and failing to qualify for the next round. With the Champions League, there’s value at every stage of the competition. For instance, a striker can start to score a lot of goals at this stage and end up top scorer even if his team does not progress very far. Savvy punters are always looking out for things like this. Or a player gets a red card and is banned from the first game of the knockout stages, thus influencing the result of that game.
Champions league group stage betting markets include; teams to qualify, group stage winner, group stage top scorer and more. The form of the teams during this stage may also encourage you to select an outright winner for the tournament so it pays to watch from the start.
