Last season, the UEFA Champions League provided spectators with one of the most thrilling tournaments in recent history. We saw Liverpool come back from a 3-0 deficit against Lionel Messi and Barcelona in the second-leg semifinal matchup at Anfield, while Tottenham scored a stoppage-time winner against Ajax that saw Spurs advance to their first ever Champions League Final. Liverpool then cruised to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in the final, marking the Reds’ sixth Champions League title in the club’s history. However, despite not advancing past the Champions League quarterfinal in the past three seasons, Manchester City is the favorite to lift the trophy for the first time in its history. The latest 2019-20 Champions League odds list the Cityzens as 16-5 favorites, with Barcelona (47-10), Liverpool (11-2), Real Madrid (8-1) and Paris Saint-Germain (19-2) rounding out the top five. The 2019-20 Champions League group stage gets underway on Tuesday, September 17, when Liverpool travels to Italy to face Napoli and Chelsea hosts Valencia at Stamford Bridge. Before you make your picks on Champions League futures, you need to see what our proprietary European soccer model has to say.

Created by two Norwegians — professional poker player and sports bettor Jonas Gjelstad, and economics and engineering expert Marius Norheim — the model analyzes worldwide betting data and exploits market inefficiencies, helping its followers cash in. Over the last three years, their algorithm is up an eye-popping 13,800 percent.

Now, with sportsbooks releasing odds to win the Champions League, our proprietary European soccer model has revealed who it’s backing and fading this season. The model has also identified a massive long shot that would carry a handsome payout. These picks are only available over at SportsLine. 

We’ll give one away: The model is all over Juventus at 11-1.

“Juventus is by far the best value pick in this year’s Champions League. They have won 8 league titles in a row and added Maurizio Sarri as their manager before this season. Juventus’ squad is one of the world’s best XI with world class performers in every position, most notably Matthijs de Ligt, Miralem Pjanic and Cristiano Ronaldo. Their overall squad is so strong that one can almost seamlessly rotate the starters like Diego Costa with subs like Federico Bernardeschi without any drop off in quality. This will enable them to play their strongest team in the Champions League this year without a drop off in league performance.”

The model also has a strong take on Barcelona, Liverpool and Manchester City, and is eyeing a massive long shot with all the components needed to pull off a stunning Champions League run. Anyone who backs this long shot could hit it big.
