Manchester City Tops Odds List

At +225, Manchester City is the favorite to win this year’s UEFA Champions League, but it’s not as if they’re undeserving of these favourable odds. They went 5-1-0 in the group stages of the tournament. They also scored 13 goals during that time while only surrounding one for a +12 goal differential.

As mentioned earlier, Manchester City then went on to win 4-0 on aggregate against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Four different players scored for the club in the Round of 16, showing that they have the depth to be able to rely on different people to get the job done.

BetOnline also put out odds regarding the nationality of the UEFA Champions League winning team. The odds are -150 that it’ll be a team from England that’ll get the job done. Considering that Manchester City is the tournament’s favorite, it makes sense why England has the best odds.

Bayern Munich Not Far Behind Manchester City

While Manchester City might be the UEFA Champions League favorite, it’s not like no other team is close. Bayern Munich is right behind them at +350. Like Manchester City, Bayern also went 5-1-0 in the group stages of the tournament. However, they showed their offensive potential, outscoring opponents 18-5.

Bayern defeated Lazio 6-2 on aggregate in the Round of 16. They will now go on to meet Paris Saint-Germain (+750) in the quarter-finals on April 7.

Chelsea Still Has Chance at Winning Champions League

A lot of attention will be on Manchester City and Bayern Munich as the tournament progresses and that’s to be expected. After all, they’ve looked like two of the more dominant teams in the Champions League so far. However, sports bettors need to remember that Chelsea is capable of winning the championship too. At +450, they have the third-highest odds.

Chelsea shutout Atlético Madrid 3-0 on aggregate in the Round of 16 after finishing at the top of Group E.

Chelsea will face Porto (+3300) in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. While it seems like it’ll be an easy win for Chelsea, Porto can’t be counted out yet. They upset Juventus in the Round of 16, which included a 3-2 overtime win in the second leg of the round. If Chelsea handles Porto better than Juventus did, their odds could possibly increase when it comes to crowning the next UEFA Champions.
