2020-21 UEFA Champions League favorites
No surprises here as oddsmakers view holders Bayern Munich and chronic UCL underachievers Manchester City as favorites.
Down a tier from them are PSG, Liverpool, and Real Madrid.
Barcelona and Juventus have as long of odds as you’ll see for those two clubs at this early stage. Both are priced at +1400, which may actually be generous.
Chelsea at +1700 is eye-popping. They’re given the best odds of non-league winners / blue chip clubs. The squad definitely has whiffs of the 2017-18 Liverpool team that made a run to the finals. Chelsea should be able to score on anyone.
If Borussia Dortmund keep Jadon Sancho and ERLING BRAUT HAALAND all season, their +3300 is worth a look. With those two having another year under their belt (not to mention American Gio Reyna’s maturation), BVB could make some noise.
Inter (+3300) is willing to spend. Atalanta (+4500) haven’t lost any major pieces yet. Both are favorably priced.
