2016-17 Champions League Title Odds

Last year Real Madrid defeated Atletico Madrid in the final to win the Champions League. However, they find themselves behind both Barcelona and Bayern Munich to win the 2016-17 Champions League Title. The 32-team field and group play will begin play on September 13. The final will take place on June 3, 2017 at the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

For anyone unfamiliar, the Champions League is comprised of the best club teams around Europe (UEFA) based on last season’s results. This means that Leicester City, winners of the Premier League in England at 5000:1 odds, will have a chance to play giants like Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Below shows the opening odds to win, and will be updated as the tournament progresses.

There were some surprising losses in UCL qualification including teams like Villarreal and Roma, while clubs like Legia Warsaw and FC Rostov were able to qualify at long odds.

3 of the top teams come from Spain’s La Liga, and Sevilla also opened with the 12th best odds of winning the title. Sevilla has won 3 consecutive Europa League titles, which is the tournament for the best teams who do not qualify for Champions League. They are an intriguing team to watch for but likely won’t sniff the title.

We’ll continue to update odds throughout the tournament as well as providing a more in-depth preview once the tournament draws closer.

Are there any early leans you like, and would you consider placing a future bet this far in advance?
