The Round of 16 in the Champions League begins on February 13 and February 14 with first leg matches, and one of the favorites, Manchester City is in action as they visit Basel. Also taking place on February 13 it is Tottenham at Juventus. The two matches on February 14 have Liverpool visiting Porto, while Paris Saint-Germain visits Real Madrid. The other four first leg matches take place the following week with Barcelona at Chelsea, Besiktas at Bayern Munich, Manchester United at Sevilla and AS Roma at Shakhtar Donetsk. Let’s look at the latest Champions League odds, the favorites and the schedule.

2017-2018 Champions League Odds

Manchester City +350

Bayern Munich +425

Paris Saint-Germain +550

Barcelona +650

Real Madrid +745

Manchester United +1400

Liverpool +1415

Juventus +1800

Tottenham +2800

Chelsea +2800

AS Roma +4000

Porto +11450

Sevilla +12550

Shakhtar Donetsk +12550

Besiktas +15250

Basel +20250


You can make a case for any of five teams as the favorite in Champions League odds, but Manchester City is the current top choice at odds of +350. City is having a superb Premier League season, as they are well clear of all challengers. City also has a very favorable draw in the Round of 16, as they face Basel. Bayern Munich also has a great draw in the Round of 16, as they take on Besiktas. The problem for two of the other favorites, PSG and Real Madrid is that they play each other in the Round of 16. One of those teams will be gone after the Round of 16, while the other team will get to the quarterfinals and be one of the favorites. The other team that is among the favorites is Barcelona and they should never be counted out, as they have one of the best players in the world in Lionel Messi.

Other Contenders

Beyond the top five there are another five teams that are listed with odds between +1400 and +2800. Four of those teams are Premier League clubs, with Manchester United having the lowest odds at +1400. United is in second place in the Premier League and is playing extremely well right now. Liverpool could be overvalued at odds of +1415, as they don’t look to be a serious threat. Juventus and Tottenham play each other in the Round of 16, so one of those teams is going to be gone. Chelsea has played better of late in the Premier League and they are an interesting darkhorse at odds of +2800.


It is always nice to hit a big price when you bet soccer futures, but there are no teams with any realistic chance of winning the Champions League beyond the ten we already listed. AS Roma is next in the odds at +4000, but they don’t have any real shot and the rest of the teams are listed with odds of +10000 or more. The Champions League is simply not a competition that lends itself to a longshot running the table.
