2022 UEFA Champions League To Win Odds

Which team between Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City offers the fairest or overlay odds?

Paris Saint-Germain drew 1-1 versus Club Brugge while Man City beat what’s supposed to be a decent Bundesliga squad in RB Leipzig 6-3. But before writing the Sky Blues are the better play, it’s important to note a couple of things.

First, Paris has yet to become a cohesive unit. Once Mbappe, Messi, Neymar and the rest gel, PSG should dominate. 

Not only that, but Paris Saint-Germain often plays well in the Champions League. They lost to Bayern in the 2020 title match by a single goal.

City is solid for sure, but they play in the top European league, the Premier. PSG should be well-rested because they mustn’t play Neymar, Mbappe, or Messi for the entire time in matches versus Ligue 1 rivals. 

At this point, Paris is the better bet.  

Which team is the best play among Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Liverpool

Bayern continues to impress. Not only did they dust Barcelona 3-0 in their first Champions League match, but Robert Lewandowski and his mates followed up the victory with a 7-0 win over Bochum. Bayern also beat Leipzig 4-1 and Hertha 5-0.

Liverpool also looks like a solid play. The Reds beat a decent AC Milan squad 3-2.

But although Bayern and Liverpool are tough to go against, the defending champs are the team to back. Lukaku appears to be the difference as the Blues not only impressed with a workmanlike 1-0 victory over Zenit in their first UCL match, but have also gone 4-1 with a draw in EPL play.

+700 is more than fair on a team with a great defense and, now with Lukaku, a solid attack. 

Do either Man United or Real Madrid offer fair odds?

Man United doesn’t. Real Madrid does. The Red Devils lost their first match to the Young Boys. Man U could struggle to get Sancho and Ronaldo on the same page. 

Real beat Inter Milano 1-0 in their first UCL match. RM looks like a solid underdog. Real leads La Liga’s Primera Division and the team is playing like a cohesive unit now that Carlo Ancelotti has returned. 

Which teams among Atletico, Juventus, Barca, Dortmund and Inter offer the fairest or overlay odds?

Both Dortmund and Inter are worth a look. Dortmund can score against any team in the Champions League save for rival Bayern.

As long as Erling Haaland remains healthy, Borussia can win matches. Same goes for Inter and Lautaro Martinez.

Martinez may be the best Argentinian player in the world. Inter Milano is 2 points behind Napoli on the Serie A Standings. 

As long as Martinez and Haaland remain on the pitch for their respective teams, both Inter and Dortmund will play competitively in their Champions League matches. That’s all we can ask from a couple of underdog squads.
