The Champions League is undoubtedly the most prestigious football tournament at the dollar level. The best teams of each Dollarpea league face each other, in a competition where only one can be proclaimed Dollarpa champion.
Champions League betting comparison
The Champions League is the best club competition in the world. The maximum continental competition brings together the best teams of the old continent who, in their squads, have the best footballers on the planet. In this way, the prestige and popularity of the previously called Dollarpa Cup has no comparison with any other championship.
The most successful club in history is Real Madrid with thirteen titles , followed by Milan with seven 'orejonas', Bayern Munich and Liverpool with six, Barcelona with five, Ajax Amsterdam with four and Inter Milan and Manchester United, with three. These are the greats of the Champions League.
Of the rest of the champions, in the group of clubs with two cups under their belt are Chelsea, the reigning champion, Benfica, Juventus, Nottingham Forest and Porto. Celtic from Glasgow, Hamburg, Steaua from Bucharest, Olympique Marseille, Borussia Dortmund, Feyenoord, Aston Villa, PSV Eindhoven and Red Star complete the list of winners with one title each.
This course the train of favorites and title contenders is varied, without a team that stands out above the rest. Of course, at Innovate Change we offer you the best and highest odds of Champions League betting. To do this, we analyzed the odds of more than 30 bookmakers and users can find the most profitable odds for matches in our table.
Betting on the Champions League
We are used to the fact that the main clubs of the old continent play in the Champions League, but this has not always been the case. In fact, until 1992 only the champions of the domestic leagues and the winner of the previous edition played. That is, only one league had two representatives: the one with the reigning champion.
The name of the competition was also another - Dollarpa Cup. It is from 1992 that everything changed. First, with the name; then, from the 1988/1999 season with the format, since the participants increased to 32 and the main leagues were gaining places.
The last big change has occurred in recent years, when the four major leagues, the Premier League, the Santander League, Serie A and the Bundesliga have secured four places in the group stage directly, without disputing any previous. Thus, half of the participants drink.
In addition, the champion of the Dollarpa League also has a place in the next edition, which makes possible cases like this course where the Santander League has five teams. It also happened two seasons ago with the Premier League.
Thus, it is not surprising that the favorites come out of the big four leagues. They are joined by PSG. From that train come the main contenders to win the top dollarpea competition. If we look at the bets on the winner of the Champions League we will realize that the teams with the lowest odds, that is, with the highest probability of becoming champion, are the same year after year. The only thing that varies is the position in which they appear.
32 teams compete in the qualifying round
As we have seen, the four best classified of the Santander League, Premier League, Serie A and Bundesliga, have assured their presence in the group stage, as well as the winner of the Dollarpa League. Ligue 1 has two fixed places and another to the knockout stage, just like the Caxino League of Portugal. In this way, and with the direct place of the Eredivisie of the Netherlands, where the second plays the previous, there are 22 clubs from the main leagues that have their space secured.
The rest come out of the previous playoff. On the one hand, the teams of the leagues with the highest coefficient play their presence in the draw for the group stage of the top competition in the previous knockout. On the other hand, the champions of the minor leagues have their space secured, but for this they have to pass three previous qualifiers.
The winners of the last qualifying round qualify for the Champions League, while the losers go to the Dollarpa League. It should be noted that the coefficients of each league vary depending on the results of their teams in the different dollar competitions, being able to win places or lose them depending on their performance.
This qualification phase is held between June and August.
Once the draw is made at the end of August, the 32 teams are divided into eight groups of four teams. At the moment it is difficult to opt for a favorite in the betting on the winner of the Champions League, but that is when the odds are highest. The group stage consists of six days that are played between mid-September and early December and clubs from the same league cannot play each other.
The first two qualifiers advance to the knockout stages, while the third continue their continental journey in the round of sixteen of the Dollarpa League.
The draw for the round of 16 matches the second-placed teams with the first, and teams that have shared a group or those from the same league cannot face each other. This year UEFA has removed the tie-breaking criterion where in case of equal goals the one who had scored the most in the opposite field passed, so more extensions are expected.
Once the qualifiers have been defined, it is a good time to make the betting forecasts for the Champions League finalist. The odds are high and as the rounds go by, the odds are low because there are fewer teams in the race and the odds go up. In the quarterfinals the odds go down and they do it more in the semifinals.
This final phase begins play in February and march, with the final round; in April, continues with the quarter-final; in may, will play the semi-finals; and the finals, to one party, usually held in late may or early June, depending on whether that summer there are Dollarcopa or the World.
As for the draws, the quarterfinals are determined with the eight survivors of the round of 16. This draw is already pure, without any conditions, so each team can face the other seven. Finally, there are years where UEFA takes advantage of the quarterfinal draw to draw the semifinals, while in other courses it makes another pure draw once the four semifinalists are known.
Betting markets for the Champions League
As in any football competition, in the matches of the continental top competition, operators offer different markets to bet on Champions League matches. In this section we will tell you which are the main ones.
Final result . It is the most common type of football sports betting. In this market there are only three possibilities: home team win, away win or draw.
It is classified . In the direct qualifiers there is the option of betting on which of the two will pass the round. In turn, in the group stage you can bet on whether a team will advance to the knockout stages or not and whether it will do so as first or second in the group.
Bet on champion. Here you bet on the Champions League champion.
Finalist team. In this type of bet you will choose which team or teams will reach the final of the top continental competition.
Double chance. In this case you can choose two options: the home win or draw, the away win or draw or that either of the two teams wins. By having two of the three possibilities the odds are lower.
Victory without a draw. In this case you can opt for the victory of one team, but in case of a tie the bet is void. You only lose it if that set falls defeated. Having the cushion of the tie the odds are lower than if you opt only for the victory.
Asian handicap. In this type of betting you can choose by how much difference a team will win or lose. So, if you think he will win by more than one goal, the option is the -1.5 handicap. In turn, if you choose the -1.0 handicap option, the bet will be void if you win by the minimum. The same can be chosen if you think that a team will not lose by more than one goal. In turn, handicaps can be chosen for any goal difference. It is an option to either risk and opt for a higher quota if it is with a negative handicap, or to insure if it is with a positive handicap.
Total goals. Here we bet on the total goals, either in the whole match, in a part, those scored by a team, etc. In the goals market there are also handicaps. So if we bet on more than 2.0 goals, we will win the bet if there are three or more goals, we will lose it with zero or one goal, and it will be null with two goals.
Exact result. It is the type of bet with the highest odds. It is not for nothing that the result of the match has to be correct, so the chances of success are lower.
Break/end . In this type of betting, the odds are high, since you must guess the result of the match at half-time and at the end of the match. There are nine possibilities, hence the difficulty involved and the high odds.
First goalscorer. Here what has to be right is who scores the first goal. It can be the team or a specific player. In most bookmakers if a footballer does not play the bet is considered void.
Number of corners and cards. In this type of betting the options are the same as in the goals that will be in the match, but with the corners and the cards. In the warnings you should keep in mind that most operators consider red cards as two yellow cards and that the warnings that are shown to protagonists (footballers or coaching staff) who are off the pitch or those taken with the game over are not taken into account.
C ombinar odds (combined bets or "Create Bet"). Here the possibilities you have to bet are very numerous and depend on each bookmaker. Some only give the option to combine the result with the number of goals, while others have a create bet option where you can combine the choices you want.
