It is up to you if and when and also where you choose to bet on the Europa League, and apart from betting on the individual matches that are played throughout the season, it is the outright betting markets that do tend to get the most attention.
The savviest football fans however do know that it is at this very early stage of the season when they are going to get the best odds on the outright betting market, for if they do feel one team is going to head the league at the end of the season and play well throughout it, that teams odds will never be as high as they are right now.
If betting on the outright winner betting market is something you fancy doing, then there are two teams that are certainly attracting lots of attention, the first of which is Chelsea the current favourite to head the league at the end of the season and you can get odds of 6/1 at Betfred.
In fact, that top rated betting site also have Arsenal chalked up at odds of 7/1 on that betting market and as such if you think the this seasons Europa League winner will be Arsenal then now is the time to back them, another team higher up the betting market is Marseille who may be worth a punt at 12/1!
Just keep in mind that as that betting market is live and active, the odds available can and will change, and not for the better! As the result start to come in this season as matches are played off you will find the betting markets do become much more volatile than they are at this early stage of the season.
Each-Way One Half the Odds
Being as the odds are so high on all teams that are in the Europa League right now, there is also the option for you to bet on any team to finish in either first or second place.
By placing an each-way bet you are betting half of the total stake on that bet on your chosen team to finish in first place, and by doing so you will be paid out if they do win it at the full odds you secured when placing such a bet.
However, the second half of the total stake you place on that bet is going to be a winning one of your chosen team finishes in first or second place. That second part of an each-way bet will see you getting paid out at half of the win odds you took when striking that bet.
Therefore that do mean that teams such as AC Milan, Lazio, Sevilla and Villarreal and also Bayer Leverkusen are certainly worth considering on an each=way type of bet for all of those teams odds are currently the same at 16/1.
Atalanta and also RB Leipzig could be worth a punt too for you can currently get odds of 20/1 on either team which means even if they only come second you still get paid out at odds of 10/1, but you do need to act quickly to ensure you do secure those odds.
Teams with Huge Odds but Possibilities
I would never estimate any team winning the Europa League title, for as is always the case it could be any team that does find its best collective form and wins match after match.
As such let me now give you a quick overview of all of the remaining teams in that league that I haven’t yet mentioned align with enlighten just how their respective odds are, if you are prepared to bet right now at most of our featured betting sites.
Real Betis and Olympiakos both are teams that have huge legions of fans, and I am more than confident many of those fans will be having a few sneaky bets on them winning the Europa League and by doing so right now they will be rewarded with odds of 25/1.
Four teams that are all on offer in the Europa League at odds of 33/1 are Besiktas, Feyenoord, Eintracht Frankfurt and also Zenit.
It is of course always possible that a team with even higher odds than 33/1 could come up trumps, however as long as you are prepared to shop around, especially when you are thinking of backing one of the lesser fancied teams then there is nothing stopping you betting on any team you fancy.
By shopping around you can occasionally find one or two betting site such as Betfred that are prepared to fifer you slightly higher than industry stands odds.
As such having just taken a look at the betting markets chalked up over at BetFred I can see that Braga, Istanbul Basaksehir and Sporting CP are on offer at 40/1 and that betting site are also offering higher than standard odds on Bordeaux who for reference if you do fancy backing them are currently 50/1.
The odds certainly do getting higher and often more tempting the further you do look down the Europa League outright betting markets and with teams such as Anderlecht, Krasnador, Rennes and Brondby at 66/1, Gent on offer at 100/1 and also Burnley and Rapid Vienna up for grabs at 125/1 there is some huge winning potential if you are tempting to back any of those teams!
You can get odds on the two Scottish teams those being Rangers and Hibernian align with Akhisar and Belediyespor of 150/1 and whilst I will not be backing them both Vorksla Poltava and Zorya Luhansk could tempt some punters to back them with their current odds of 250/1!
The only other teams that are involved in the Europa League this year are the likes of Universitatea Craiova, Rijeka, Zurich, Sigma Olomouc, Jablonec and Luzern and being as they are all rank outsider their odds do give you an overview of their actual chance of winning the Europa League this season, and those odds are huge at 500/1!
