Champions League Futures

Futures betting is wagering before the competition has begun. Champions League futures odds can be on a number of popular markets such as Group Stages Winners and Last 16 as well as some lesser known ones e.g. Number of Games to Go to Penalties, Goals Over/Under or Half Time Score.

Interestingly enough, wagering on the winner of the Champions League final when the two finalists are known is not a form of Futures betting, as the odds are to be found under the general Champions League odds section, which would normally feature lines for all the upcoming CL matches.

Champions League Winner Odds

Everyone has an opinion on who will win the Champions League outright. The title of European Champions is huge and nobody can ignore it. Players and managers all want that medal while bettors are happy to cash in a winning bet even to the detriment of their own affiliation towards a specific club.

The final is usually in late May / early June after a long period of qualifying and there are betting opportunities all the way to the final. Winners are often famous teams with strong pedigree and tradition, but unfancied teams make the final too. This is always good for betting markets and odds, it keeps thing fresh and interesting.

Clubs from all the major European football leagues have won it in the last 10 years. You have a good chance at predicting the who will win Groups and knockout games as they are over two legs, but the final is a one-off 90-minute game where anything can happen. Bookmakers recognise this and will offer great odds and attractive markets in the run up to the final.

Real Madrid completed a hat-trick of consecutive titles last year, but that kind of dominance may not be seen again for some time. Lots of clubs have money to spend these days and that has made the playing field a lot more level. You can’t be certain who will win it and that is why you can enjoy some varied Champions League final odds.

Best time to bet on Champions League Futures

The Champions League is something football fans start to think about at the beginning of the year. The final may be in May, but the tournament is simply an obsession for many and betting on it takes place all year round. Punters are on the hunt for value betting markets and the road to the Champions League is filled with some excellent futures odds.

Futures can be exciting as they are an opportunity for you to lock in some great odds that may not be available again. You can back an unfancied team and if they make it through the group stages then the odds will come right down but you still have your futures wager. The opposite is also true, your futures bet might be dead in the water after the first 2 games. But that is football betting, nothing is ever certain!
