How to choose the best betting site to bet on Champions League?  

So where to begin your Champions League betting journey? Picking the best sports betting site to place your Champions League bets is a completely subjective choice: the site that is best for one person will not necessarily be for another. How so? Because it depends on the experience you want.

Some sites specialise in offering the most competitive odds. Some sites pride themselves on their comprehensive list of markets. Others offer extras such as in-play betting, bet boosts, pulse betting or other innovations. Other sites excel in their mobile offerings. What are you looking for?

Once you have decided what is most important for your sports betting needs, then pick your operator. It’s often a good approach to sign up with more than one sports betting site in order to avail of the generous new customer sign-up offers and then bet as per the best odds available. This is the smart approach to betting on the Champions League.

 Champions League Betting Markets

Here are just some of the betting markets available on the Champions League:
First goal Which team will score the first goal of the match? It’s a simple premise, so why not place a bet?

 Over/Under Match CornersA variation on the classic over/under bet, select if you think there will be more or less than a certain number of corners in the match, with options always offered up as halves (1.5, 2.5 for example).  

Most cards Which team do you think will attract the most bookings in the match? This is yet another option that many sports betting sites offer on the Champions League.  

Last goalscorerBack which player you think will score the last goal in the match. This style of bet always offers up longer odds for obvious reasons.

Team clean sheet Go ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on whether one team will keep a clean sheet during the game, meaning they won’t concede a goal. It’s a straightforward choice, and can offer up consistent returns.  

Champions League Betting Specials

The Champions League – as the world’s biggest club competition – offers up a great array of special bets, including options such as:

Own goals Will there be an own goal in the match? Just back ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

To score in the half Will the home team score in the first half? That’s just one example of the type of bet you can place with this style of football special.

To win from behind Fancy that one of the teams will concede the first goal but still ultimately win? Then make that bet.  

Team to reach the knockout stage As the groups stages are in progress and before any table positions have been ultimately confirmed, bet on whether you think a team will finish in one of the top two positions and qualify for the knockout stage.  

AccumulatorsBet across multiple matches if it takes your fancy with Champions League accumulator bets.

Champions League Betting Outrights

It’s the world’s biggest football competition bar the FIFA World Cup, and the Champions League has plenty of betting opportunities. But it’s the outrights which usually get people talking.

Top goalscorer The list for the Champions League top goalscorer is a who’s who of world football greats: Lionel Messi, Cristiano Rolando, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski…the list goes on. But who will finish at the tournament’s top goalscorer this time around? Back the player you think will do it, and place your bet at any time from now until the final.   

Champions League Winner And it really all comes down to this: who will win the Champions League? It’s a tough one to call as there are just so many great teams with great players. Will Manchester City claim their first title? Or will it be Paris Saint-Germain who finally break their duck? Then there are the old favorites such as Juventus, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Barcelona. Or could it be a resurgent Manchester United? Or will Chelsea reclaim the trophy they won in 2021? This is your chance to back who you believe will claim the honours in Saint Petersburg in May.

How to bet on the Champions League, and the best betting strategy to take

What’s the best approach to betting on the Champions League? Well, ask ten people and you will probably get ten different answers, so it’s best to take an approach that suits your style of betting. That means assessing what kind of stakes you typically place, and whether you are taking a short or long-term strategy to your betting.

One approach is to stay away from the classic markets and bet more regularly on ‘yes’ or ‘no’ outcomes with lower odds but stable returns – that way you can grow your betting bank steadily and not take any unnecessary risks.
