How to bet on Champions League: parlay, prop bets & other strategies

There are numerous ways to wager on the Champions League. Firstly, before the tournament begins, you can place futures bets on any of the eight groups.

You can bet the team you think will win the group, you can bet the team you think will advance into the knockout stages (top two teams in the four-team groups advance), and you can also bet on Champions League teams not to advance.

On match days, you can place wagers on any of the eight games that will be played. 

Champions League Bet Types

You can wager pregame on the money line, goal line, or basically anything else there is to bet. But in-play wagering has also become very popular, with bettors waiting to see how the game is going before placing or adding to their bets.

Betting on Favorites

One popular way to bet at Champions League is to parlay two or more heavy favorites each match day. If a team has odds of -300, and you can parlay them with other -300 or up teams, you can find yourself with a plus-money parlay.

Parlays & The Winner

One other strategy that some people like is to bet four or more Champions League teams in a parlay with games Tuesday and Wednesday, then cash out if you get to a certain point in the parlay.

Of course, you can also bet on the winner of the whole tournament, which is something you will be able to do all the way through the tournament.

Prop Bets

One of the ways to win money on prop bets is to pick one or two goal scorers for a game and wager on them. You can sometimes get very good Champions League odds on those, and if the player scores early in the contest, you know your bet has won, and you can find some in-play props to possibly double your winnings.
