Improve your bet selections with our Champions League predictions. Our tipsters reveal their top football predictions for several main UCL markets, including match results, both teams to score, over/under 2.5 goals and double chance.
Champions League Predictions This Week
1X2 is also known as the match result market. It’s the most popular UEFA Champions League betting market with punters. To win a 1X2 wager, all you have to do is predict what the result will be at the end of 90 minutes (plus additional time). It’s a 3-way market, with the options being a home win (1), draw (X), or away win (2). These are our 1X2 Champions League predictions this week.
Both teams to score (BTTS) is a great market for Champions League betting tips. This is a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ bet. Either you wager that both teams will score (yes), or both teams won’t score (no). To find the best BTTS Champions League predictions, you want to look for attack-minded teams playing each other (for BTTS ‘yes’ bets) and strong defences against weak opposition for the ‘no’ bets.
Over/Under 2.5 Goals Predictions
When researching the fixtures for your Champions League predictions, if you find a game that looks like it’s guaranteed to produce goals, the O/U 2.5 market is a good option. Essentially, this bet wins if 3 or more goals are scored (it doesn’t matter which team scores), and it loses if the match ends with 2 or fewer goals scored. Below, you can see our hot O/U 2.5 goals Champions League tips.
Double Chance Predictions
Double chance gives bettors two chances of winning from a regular 3-way market. For instance, you can place a double bet on a home win and draw. If either of those results is correct, you win. For matches, such as the Champions League final, that you’d expect to be close, double chance betting gives your bets some insurance.
How Did We Choose our Champions League Predictions?
The internet is flooded with UCL predictions and Champions League betting tips, so what makes our picks different from the rest? For us, the secret is research. That is not to say every Champions League prediction we make will be correct, as that’s virtually impossible. Here are the main criteria we look at when choosing our bets.
Strength of Domestic League and Current Form
32 teams from across Europe compete in the Champions League group stage. As these sides come from different domestic leagues, we first look at the strength of that league. For example, all four English teams (if they all qualified for the group stage) would be expected to beat the champions of Sweden’s Allsvenskan.
With that in mind, we evaluate the current form and the opposition. Simply looking at the form guide without any context of strength will be misleading when making Champions League predictions.
What Stage is the Tournament at?
Imagine, it’s the final group game; Bayern Munich have won all five of their previous games. They have already qualified for the knockout stage as group winners. In their last match, they are playing Barcelona, who need to win to finish second. Will Bayern be fully switched on? Maybe the manager will rest some key players.
These are the variables that our tipsters making their UCL predictions consider. Furthermore, this is when you can often find extra value with your bets because the bookmaker has to list Bayern as the favourite prior to kick off.
Injuries and Suspensions
If a team is missing one or two star players, they will obviously be weakened, and this could lead to a below-par performance. Although we provide our Champions League betting tips before the line-ups are announced, we still monitor the teams for injuries and suspensions.
Not only is this important for individual match markets, but also if you are betting on particular players, such as who’ll be the Champions League top scorers.
With the right amount of research, every game right up to the Champions League final can be bet on effectively. That doesn’t mean always wagering on the same market, though. For example, Manchester United away to Atalanta, both teams have scored and conceded goals in their recent games.
It’s a risky bet trying to call the match winner, but given the statistics, over 2.5 goals looks great. The secret is to not get stuck to one type of market. Base your bets off of the stats and information that you know, and that will guide you to the best markets.
