It’s the most lucrative competition in European club football. Teams spend fortunes trying to qualify for it and ten times that trying to win it, and with bwin there is never a Champions League betting opportunity too far away.
When perusing the Champions League odds, trying to find the winner, it’s clear that bwin regularly rate the chances of some sides as far superior to those of their competitors.
Given their history in the competition, the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United will forever be placed at the top end of the Champions League betting scale.
Madrid are the most successful club in Champions League history having won nine titles and despite their last success coming way back in 2002 their bottomless pit of cash makes them able to add any number of superstars to their squad, making them a serious contender in the Champions League betting year after year.
Barcelona are equally extravagant with their euros but have had far more recent success than their Spanish foes, winning in 2008/09 and 2010/11.
Premier League giants Manchester United and Bundesliga behemoths Bayern Munich have reached more finals than any other side in the last six years with both side contesting three main attractions each and winning one title apiece. It is that pedigree that sees them lodged safely at the short end of the Champions League betting each year.
With matches held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the competition the opportunity to compile a winning Champions League accumulator, and receive a pay out from some inflated odds is doubled while the group stage simply serves to multiply the number of Champions League betting opportunities with its group winner and qualification markets.
Matches themselves provide the real bread and butter Champions League betting with odds available from everything to first and last goal scorer to total goals well covered.
