Which teams are the favorites to win the 2022-2023 Champions League?

Despite not playing well right now, Manchester City isn’t just the chalk to win the CL, they’re an underlay favorite.

City is at +175 to take home the Champions League’s top prize. Part of the hub-hub is the fact the Sky Blues started the season the overall chalk. But the real reason soccer handicappers love Manchester City is because Erling Haaland kicks in goals for Pep Guardiola’s team.

Haaland has 25 goals and 3 assists in 18 starts and one sub. The goal pace is ridiculous. 

The other two teams offering less than +900 odds are Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain. The problem with backing either is one is going to knock out the other during the Round of 16. The fact Bayern and PSG both can’t make it to the quarterfinals could be another reason so much money has landed on Man City.   


Which underdogs are getting the most buzz to take the title?

At +900, Liverpool is more of a favorite than an underdog. The Reds haven’t had a great season. So, their chances of taking the Champions League appear much worse than their odds.

But Napoli and Real Madrid are solid. Let’s first discuss the defending champs.

Carlo Ancelotti’s squad is the best team to ever play in the Champions League. El Blanco won the title last season. This season, Real doesn’t appear as good of a team. Ah, but Ancelotti’s fellas have made it to the knockout stage, which is why the buzz has built.

There’s also buzz surrounding Napoli. The Serie A standings leader continues to play lights out soccer. Napoli would offer lower odds if their name was Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, or Paris Saint-Germain.  


What favorite deserves a look to win it all? What underdog is the best play to take the Champions League title?

The top favorite pick must be Bayern. Munich faces a tall task getting by Paris Saint-Germain. But Bayern’s secret weapon is about to step back onto the pitch.

Mane started running on Jan. 26. A healthy Sadio puts Bayern on the level of Manchester City and puts Munich past PSG. By the time the first leg takes place, Sadio Mane should be one-hundred percent and ready to go. 

The top underdog play is Napoli. The odds are overlayed on Serie A’s best team. There was a stretch before the World Cup where Napoli won 13 straight. So we should give the Serie A team their due.
