Champions League Betting: Juventus are the Smart Bet In the Futures Market
We are nearing the knockout stages of Europe’s Premier cup competition and the Champions League betting market is well and truly hotting up and now is the time to consider your options in the futures market.
The last 16 is peppered with some truly standout ties with many of the big favorites facing off, head to head, which in turn means that the field of sides that could actually win the Champions League will get shorter.
For instance big favorites Real Madrid take on similar hot tips Manchester City, Chelsea face Bayern Munich in a repeat of the 2012 final, Liverpool take on Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund encounter Paris Saint-Germain.
So basically once the round of 16 is done, four of the sides who could be genuine contenders, will be gone and this leads us nicely to our big tip.
Champions League Futures Odds by Bookmaker
Manchester City +415
Bayern Munich +720
Real Madrid +1250
Juventus are desperate to win their first Champions League title since 1996 and superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is similarly keen to win another winners’ medal to go with the five he picked up at Manchester United and Real Madrid, and the odds from US Sportsbook Bookmaker of +1025 are incredibly enticing.
The Italian giants face a relatively sedate opponent in the shape of French side Lyon in the last 16 and as such are a certainty to progress, while their contenders will potentially fall by the wayside.
