The 2023-2024 edition of the UEFA Champions League has been quite a spectacle for many sports fans, with the group stages providing exciting matches for viewers in Singapore. And with clubs already four games in the group stage, the picture for the knockout phase is starting to shape up. This is the perfect opportunity for many sports bettors to start placing wagers on who they think will win the UCL, enabling them to make informed decisions based on how the teams are playing so far.
So, if you are looking to place bets on the potential winner of the UCL, here are the current favourites to lift the trophy based on one of the trusted sportsbooks in Singapore.
After almost a decade of getting eliminated during the knockout phase, Manchester City finally won their first-ever UCL title last season, leading to them getting a treble. The addition of Erling Haaland in the summer of 2022 has given the Citizens a potent attacking core, with the Norwegian superstar bagging his 2nd top-scorer award of the tournament.
And with the reigning Premier League champs still looking dominant in domestic and European competitions, Man City is the clear-cut favourite to win this year’s UCL. As of writing, the club leads Group G with 12 points, winning all four games, and has 3.00 odds to win it all.
The reigning 11-time Bundesliga champions are looking to make some noise in the UCL, especially after three consecutive quarterfinals exit in the past three years. But the arrival of superstar striker Harry Kane from Tottenham gave the Bavarians a reliable goalscorer for domestic and continental competitions. Adding Kane to the already potent lineup of Bayern Munich can help the club go deep in this year’s knockout phase.
As of writing, the team sits comfortably on top of Group A with 4 wins and 12 points, 8 points clear of 2nd placer Copenhagen. They are already locked for the Round of 16 and have 5.00 Singapore pools SG sports odds of winning the club’s 7th European trophy
Speaking of UCL favourites, Real Madrid is undoubtedly always in the mix of potential UCL winners yearly. The Los Blancos has been part of the competition since 1997, winning 8 (14 in total, including European Cup), making them the only club with only 10 or more continental titles. And with a revamped and much younger lineup, the 35-time La Liga
champions are looking to bring the trophy back to Santiago Bernabéu.
Similar to Man City and Bayern Munich, the Spanish club is also leading their group as of writing, winning 4 games for 12 points in Group C. They currently have 7.00 odds of winning UCL and have enough weapons to secure another UCL title.
The Gunners enjoyed a remarkable Premier League campaign last year, leading the league table midway through the season and looking like a lock to win the league before losing the place to Man City. However, placing 2nd allowed them to secure a spot in this year’s UCL, which they failed to qualify for the six years.
And in their return to the big stage, Arsenal is looking to make the most of the opportunity as they currently lead Group B with 3 wins and 9 points, already assured of a place of at least a transfer to the Europa League. They have 9.00 odds of winning the UCL this year and are looking like a solid pick to win the competition.
With the UCL well underway, it’s high time for sports bettors to make their picks on who they think will win the competition. Betting on the favourites gives some sort of safety net for many looking to profit from their wagers. However, it’s important to note that some other teams can steal the spotlight from the favourites, including other powerhouse teams like FC Barcelona (15.00 odds), PSG (15.00 odds), Atletico Madrid (21.00 odds), Inter Milan (26.00 odds), and Napoli (41.00 odds).
