Champions League Betting: Back Bayern Munich to Beat the Rest
When Bayern Munich dished out a thumping to Tottenham in London this week they not only embarrassed the Premier League side, but they sent out a warning to their Champions League rivals of their intent to capture to the prized crown this term.
With established sides such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, and to a lesser extent Juventus and PSG, all starting the season in less than glorious fashion, it may be worth tracking Nico Kovac’s men for a Champions League wager.
Six games into their Bundesliga title defence the Allianz Arena side are purring with the likes of Robert Lewandowski and on loan attacker Philippe Coutinho regularly entertaining their fervant fanbase.
Polish finisher Lewandowski has been particularly impressive, the lethal finisher scoring an astonishing 15 goals from 10 appearances in all competitions thus far.
Let’s not forget former Arsenal man Serge Gnabry, who picked up four goals in the 7-2 win against Spurs, nor world class keeper Manuel Neuer, who’s full return from a long-term layoff has coincided with a renewed strength at the back.
Now how about those Champions League odds?
As of this morning you could still grab a juicy 9/1 on Bayern Munich winning their sixth European Cup/Champions League crown, and surprisingly they are still down as fifth favorite with most sportsbooks.
4/1 is available on Bayern Munich at least making it through to the final in Istanbul on the 30th of May and that could be a nice safe secure bet to consider.
The 12/1 offered by SportingBet on Robert Lewandowski to finish as the tournament’s top scorer, and remember the 31-year-old has already netted three times in the competition.
