Types of Champions League bets
For each match in the Champions League, sportsbooks will offer odds on the moneyline, spread, and total goals. These tend to be the most popular options with sports bettors.
The moneyline simply refers to which team will win the match. Betting options will be moneyline odds on both teams as well as on the match ending in a draw. The Champions League Final is the only match that includes the option for an extra period or penalty kick shootout to decide a winner. Even there, a tie score at the end of regulation counts as a draw by most sportsbooks’ rules.
The spread refers to the final goal differential between the two teams. If a team is a -1.5 favorite on the spread, that means a bet on that team would only be successful if the team wins by two goals or more. If the spread is +1.5, that means a bet on that team would win if the team loses by only one goal or wins by any margin.
Total goals refers to the combined total score in a match. If the final score is 4-2, regardless of which team wins, the total would be six, for example. Most sportsbooks also offer other options, such as bets on whether both teams will score, which side will lead at halftime and/or full time, and more.
