Outright Europa League betting: In-depth odds analysis

The Europa League is a European soccer tournament often disregarded by the biggest clubs. However, it now offers the winner a place in the far more prestigious Champions League. With a big prize on offer and some high-quality sides drawn against each other the 2017/18 Europa League outright betting looks as open as ever.

Europa League final preview and predictions

Historically speaking, the Europa League has produced seven different winners in the last 10 years – but Sevilla did win the competition three times in a row before last season. At this stage there is no seeding and the draw has created some big ties which will see some of the early favourites leaving the competition.

Sides who may struggle to achieve Champions League qualification in their domestic league increasingly make the Europa league their priority, so motivation is a factor to consider when betting on a team.

The tournament provides an alternative Champions league a qualification route last season’s winners Manchester United used to their advantage.

Who will win the Europa League? Analysing the favourites

Atletico Madrid

Europa League outright odds: 2.150*

Semi-final opponent: Arsenal

Atletico's unsuccessful Champions League campaign was contributed to by a transfer ban, making them unable to register new players. This ban has now ended and Atletico promptly added Spanish internationals Vitolo and Diego Costa to their squad.

On paper Atletico Madrid are the strongest side in the competition and the talent within Diego Simeone’s squad is worthy of their favourite status.


Europa League outright odds5.000*

Semi-final opponent: RB Salzburg

A credible win over German side RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg demonstrated the attacking prowess of this much improved Marseille side.
