UEFA Super Cup Odds
Odds updated on 08/14/19
After Liverpool’s dominate win over Norwich City on matchday 1 and Chelsea’s shellacking at the hands of Manchester United, the Reds are priced as favorites. Regular time odds are as follows:
|Liverpool -157||Draw +300||Chelsea +430|
Liverpool are also (obviously) viewed as favorites to win the trophy outright:
|Liverpool -286||Chelsea +220|
After losing Alisson to a calf injury on matchday 1, it remains to be seen if Liverpool will trot out their best XI. Expect to see players like Xherdan Shaqiri, James Milner, and Divock Origi get the starting nod.
UEFA Super Cup Prop Bets
Some interesting prop best on DraftKings Sportsbook NJ for the UEFA Super Cup include:
|Sadio Mane +360||Mo Salah +360||Roberto Firmino +500||Divock Origi +525|
|Xherdan Shaqiri +550||Rhian Brewster +550||Tammy Abraham +750||Michy Batshuayi +850|

|Pedro Rodríguez +1150||Christian Pulisic +1200||Naby Keita +1200||Willian +1400|
Oddsmakers clearly favor Liverpool on the props. They also appear to think Liverpool is running out a heavy B-team line-up (Adam Lallana has better first goal odds than Christian Pulisic).
Oddsmakers also view this as a low-scoring game. Total Goals props include:
- Over 2.5 +200
- Under 2.5 -275
- Over 3.5 +550
- Under 3.5 -910
- Over 1.5 -175
- Under 1.5 +132
Basically, expect a 2-0 Liverpool win.
The 2019-20 Bundesliga season starts this Friday. Defending champs Bayern Munich host Hertha at 2:30pm ET on FS2, fuboTV and Hulu in the US. As expected, 2019-20 Bundesliga title odds heavily favor Bayern to win what would be their 8th straight domestic trophy this season.
Can anyone realistically challenge Bayern Munich this season? Oddsmakers don’t seem to think so. We do.
2019-20 Bundesliga Odds
Similar to the 2019-20 Premier League title odds, oddsmakers view this as a two-team race. In the EPL, it’s all about Liverpool and Manchester City. In the Bundesliga, it’s Bayern and Borussia Dortmund.
Yes, BVB lost Christian Pulisic this summer to Chelsea. However, BVB arguably had a better overall summer than Bayern. BVB have a certain prototype of player–one that excels at distribution on the attack.
They’ve brought Mats Hummels back and acquired Thorgan Hazard, Julian Brandt, Nico Schulz, and made Paco Alcaser (and his 18 goals from last season) permanent. Most importantly, they retained superstar Jadon Sancho for one more season.
BVB only fell 2 points shy of capturing the Bundesliga last season. This squad is deeper. Their +400 is currently more appealing than Liverpool’s +275 in the EPL. Expect a thrilling, down-to-the-wire title race.
|Bayern Munich -335||Borussia Dortmund +400||RB Leipzig +1600|
|Bayer Leverkusen +3300||Borussia Mönchengladbach +15000||Hoffenheim +15000|
|VfL Wolfsburg +20000||Eintracht Frankfurt +30000||Werder Bremen +40000|
|Schalke 04 +40000||Hertha +75000||FC Köln +100000|
|Fortuna Düsseldorf +100000||FC Augsburg +100000||Mainz 05 +100000|
|SC Freiburg +100000||SC Paderborn 07 +200000||FC Union Berlin +200000|
