UEFA Champions League odds have shifted in the weeks since group play concluded, with the Round of 16 set to commence.
Soccer bettors will have to wait another month for Champions League betting to resume, with the next round's first leg beginning February 16.
Before the road to the scheduled final (May 29 in Istanbul) begins, we look at the current odds to win the Champions League.
Who is the Champions League Betting Favorite?
It's little surprise that Bayern Munich remain this year's Champions League favorites at +275, after their dominant romp to last year's title. Bayern showed similar form in outscoring opponents 18-5 en route to a 5-1 record in group play.
A pair of Premier League rivals sit second and third, as Manchester City (+400) and Liverpool (+550) get to closely jostle for position near the top of two leagues yet again. Both finished atop their groups and face German squads (Borussia Monchengladbach and Leipzig, respectively) in the next round.

Understanding Champions League Odds
These odds are constantly adjusted throughout the summer as players get hurt, suspended or transfer. Once the season begins, title odds will change as teams win and lose games and as more players get hurt or are suspended. Sportsbooks will also adjust the Champions League odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.
Champions League odds will usually look like this:
- Bayern Munich +250
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $250 if Bayern wins the Champions League. If it's close to the end of the tournament you might see that a team is has a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds.
- Barcelona -120
This means that you would need to bet $120 to win $100 on a Barcelona championship.
