FC Barcelona Atop 2018 Champions League Odds

FC Barcelona Atop 2018 Champions League Odds - Bovada Sportsbook

It remains a tight four-way race atop the 2018 Champions League odds entering quarter-final action next week, with FC Barcelona leading the way as the +250 favorite to capture their first title since 2015.

Barca advanced to the quarter-finals for a 10th straight year by knocking off Chelsea in their Round of 16 clash, capped by a 3-0 second-leg win on home turf as -222 favorites. With that victory, the Spanish powerhouse remains undefeated in four home dates during this season’s tournament, and prepares for next Wednesday’s first-leg betting matchup with AS Roma at Camp Nou pegged as a heavy -425 favorite on the Champions League Quarter Finals Odds.

Barcelona’s steady play at home extends across all competitions. The squad is undefeated in 23 home outings, and has surrendered just one total goal in its past seven appearances in front of hometown supporters.

Roma enters its April 4 clash with Barca as a +1100 underdog, and sits well back of the favorites on the 2018 Champions League odds at +5000.

It has been a roller coaster campaign for the Giallorossi, who endured a seven-match winless streak that started just before Christmas. The Italian side has since rebounded, winning seven of nine across all competitions, but is winless in three straight Champions League road contests, and in three visits to Barcelona since 2002.

 

Man City Close Second on Champions League Odds

Manchester City closely trails Barca at +300 on the Champions League futures, just ahead of Bayern Munich at +350, while defending champions Real Madrid sit at +450.

The Citizens are enjoying an historic Premier League campaign, and are poised to smash league records for most wins and most points. However, they have struggled in recent UCL outings, dropping two of three including a 2-1 loss to FC Basel as -350 chalk in the second leg of their Round of 16 matchup.

City also faces a tough test in their quarter-final matchup with EPL rivals Liverpool FC, whom they visit next Wednesday as narrow +140 favorites. The Citizens have struggled in recent dates with the Reds, going winless in four of five including a stunning 4-3 loss as +130 favorites on January 14 that marks their only defeat in league action this season.

Liverpool has gone 6-2-3 in 11 matches across all competitions since its victory over Manchester City, including just one win in its past three. However, the Reds remain undefeated in Champions League action, outscoring opponents by a massive 25-3 margin over their past six, and sport intriguing +185 odds in next week’s first-leg clash at Anfield, while their UCL championship odds are pegged at +1200.

Real Madrid continues their march towards a third straight UCL title as they prepare to battle Juventus as +155 road favorites on the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final betting odds.

Los Blancos have emerged victorious in four straight overall, but face a Juventus side that has allowed just one total goal in seven straight wins, and is listed as a +1000 bet on the Champions League futures.

Bayern is coming off a 2-1 loss to RB Leipzig as a -175 wager on the Bundesliga odds, but is listed as -145 road chalk in its first-leg clash with Sevilla, who trail as +6600 UCL futures betting longshots.
