Best Europa League Bets
Betting on Europa League games and outright markets is pretty straightforward – but one thing that makes this tournament stand out from the rest is the unique way the Europa League plays out.
The fact Champions League third-placed teams drop down to the Europa League means the football odds are always susceptible to being shaken up between the group and the knockout stages.
UEFA have eased this shake-up a little bit by giving Europa League group winners a bye in the first knockout round. Still, it means the Europa League winner odds can totally scramble once the Champions League third-place teams dropdown.
This happened in 2022 when Barcelona crashed into the knockout playoffs. They lasted until the quarter-finals before suffering a shock exit to Frankfurt that rumbled the Europa League odds to win. Usually, teams that fall down from the Champions League limp out. Perhaps the best bet, then, is to back a group winner from the Europa League to lift the trophy come the summer.
Meanwhile, some stats that can aid Europa League bets are:
There were 2.27 goals per Europa League game in 2021/22.
The first goal is scored on average in the 32nd minute of Europa League games.
More goals are scored in the last 15 minutes of Europa League games (20.4%) than any other 15-minute period.
Europa League Winner Odds
Get the latest Europa League winner odds right here at Bet UK and see which are the Europa League favourites this season. Remember, the odds will fluctuate throughout the season and there are two main dates when the changes happen swiftly.
The first is in the summer when teams are trying to qualify for the Europa League. Usually, the Europa League winner odds are much higher for teams at this stage, because there’s uncertainty over who will make the group stage.
The second big change happens over the winter when the Champions League third-place teams all drop into the Europa League. It’s never guaranteed a Champions League team will win the Europa League, but the odds will change. Bet UK update our markets constantly, so keep an eye on our odds to win Europa League for the very latest prices!
Europa League qualifying bets
You can also bet on Europa League qualifying during the summer – and this can be a great source of profits if you guess right. Many league winners in “smaller” European footballing nations enter the latter qualifying stages of the Europa League. And they can be a great source of winning bets, should they come up against lower-ranked outsiders. For those interested in betting on the preliminary qualifiers, it can be viewed as an excellent way to start the football betting season early.
Punters generally tend to stick with backing teams from the “big” European leagues in England, Spain and Germany during the tournament. But qualifying affords you the chance to look at big boys from smaller leagues, like in Denmark, Netherlands, Scotland and Portugal.
