Champions League Odds for Futures

November 30, 2010 Football Soccer

Champions League odds generally give bettors an opportunity to wager on individual Champions League matchups, but the Champions League betting odds for futures provide excitement throughout the long Champions League season.

Most Champions League odds for futures revolve around the eventual winner of the tournament, and bettors may have an opportunity to wager on these Champions League odds in the earliest stages of the tournament. When evaluating these Champions League odds one must be particularly careful about avoiding overrated teams.

The Champions League odds for futures are some of the most challenging Champions League betting odds to handicap, especially if one is handicapping them at the very beginning of the tournament. Because the tournament lasts nearly a full year, it is inevitable that many things will change before the tournament is over. For instance, players may be traded or injured, and such occurrences will naturally impact the value of different Champions League odds. Nevertheless, the Champions League odds for futures provide excellent entertainment value because they can remain relevant until the very end of the tournament. Furthermore, the payouts associated with these Champions League betting odds can be very high. Because the payouts are so high and the risk is minimal, some soccer gamblers end up wagering on the futures Champions League odds for several teams. If even one of the teams reaches the Finals then one has the opportunity of hedging on the Champions League odds in the Finals and guaranteeing winnings.

When most bettors handicap the futures Champions League betting odds they focus on the traditional powerhouses, like Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Real Madrid. It is true that the tournament is typically won by a well-known team with many superstar players. Nevertheless, bettors should be apprehensive about wagering on the Champions League odds for the top one or two teams in the tournament. Such is the case because the Champions League betting odds may favor these teams too much, thereby negating any genuine value in the Champions League odds. One must remember that winning the Champions League requires not only lots of talent, but also some luck. For example, frequently, a team must win at least one shootout before eventually hoisting the trophy and shootouts obviously involve lots of luck. Consequently, gamblers can sometimes find better value in the Champions League odds by looking at teams that are elite squads, but not necessarily the absolute favorites to win the tournament. Obviously, one should not wager on the futures Champions League odds for some unknown team from Malta or Moldova, for instance, but the mid-level elite teams can sometimes provide relatively high chances of winning along with very high payouts.
