Champions League betting favorite
It's no surprise to see Manchester City as the Champions League favorites at +125, as they have been in incredible form in all competitions for over four months now. Despite a close first leg, City cruised into the semis after defeating Borussia Dortmund over two legs.
City's next opponents, Paris Saint-Germain, are second on the board at +333. The runners up a year ago, PSG put on an excellent showing against Bayern and will surely be the favorite to win the tournament should they get past Manchester City.
On the weaker side of the bracket, Real Madrid (+400) just edge their opponents, Chelsea (+450). Madrid dominated Liverpool over two legs and have found strong form in Spain, while the team's recent history in the Champions League cannot be overlooked.

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.
