After the Round of 16 came to an end, one could safely say four obvious contenders remained: Man City, Bayern Munich, Napoli, and Real Madrid.  

We're going to lose at least one of those four ahead of the semifinals, however, after Friday's quarterfinals draw pitted the two UCL betting favorites, City and Bayern, against one another.

With a few weeks until the competition resumes, check out the latest Champions League odds update below.

Favorites to win the Champions League

Man City (+225)

A 7-0 win over Leipzig, including five from Erling Haaland, propelled City past the German club and into the quarterfinals. City's path is about to intensify, however, with Bayern looming.   

Bayern Munich (+300)

That same Bayern have rolled through this year's competition, including dispatching PSG with ease. Purists will be quick to point out the similarities between City and PSG — and the joy that would come from seeing Bayern eliminate one after the other. 

Napoli (+350)

With an easy draw against AC Milan, we may have to wait another round to declare it, but this is the best team in Europe. Just as big of a boost to Napoli's UCL hopes as their quarterfinal matchup with Milan is their standing in Serie A. Already 18 points clear, Napoli can prioritize Europe and a wildly unlikely double.

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.
