Champions League Odds

Hence, there are plenty of odds and markets to choose from. Fans, media and bettors all look forward to this festival of football featuring the best clubs and players from all across the globe.

UEFA CL Tournament Structure & Impact on Betting Odds

There are 4 stages on the way to the Champions League final: Group stages, Last 16, Quarter-finals and Semi-finals. The majority of the Champions League betting happens during these games as fans speculate on which teams are best positioned to advance to the next round.

The odds to advance to the next stage - which are a form of Champions League Futures odds - are usually way more favourable than they are in the final as there are lots more teams, games and top-rated players in action during these stages. That means more betting markets and a wider selection of unique odds to reach the champions league final. Accumulators and multi-game betting are a factor here so you have opportunities to win more money than you would in a one-off final.

The Group stages often throw up interesting odds as they often feature some lesser-known teams. There are eight groups with four teams each, and each team will play the other three home-and-away for a total of six games. That’s a lot of games and a lot of markets before we even get to the last 16! Last 16 onwards is knockout football so extra-time and penalties odds come into play here too.
