That means that there are plenty of games to wager on and some of the best soccer in the world to get involved in.
UEFA Champions League Betting Options
Our betting tips and previews give a great overview of the upcoming matches but before placing a wager it is important to know some of the more popular betting options available to you:
The most popular bet in most sports is the simple match result wager, which allows punters to pick which team will win or whether the match will end in a draw. Punters also have the option on betting on soccer futures, and picking which team they believe will win the League at the end of the season.
Draw No Bet
If you’re going for an underdog then maybe the draw no bet option is the best for you. This bet type returns your investment if the match ends in a draw, letting you hedge your risks if you are not backing the favourite to win.
First Team To Score
If you have a good idea about who you think will be the stronger team out of the gate then you might want to place a bet on the first team to score. Similarly, if you think that the two teams are well matched then you can place a bet on both teams to score.
Often one of the more rewarding wagers punters can make, the correct score bet requires plenty of skill to guess what the score will be at the end of the match. Getting it right can result in a big payout.
Half Time/Full Time
This bet involves picking the team to win the first and then second half of the match. It is a popular bet for punters that are wagering on a favourite to win and is done in order to increase the potential payout of the wager.
