Which team is most likely to win the 2022/23 Champions League?
To find out which European team is most likely to win the 2022/23 Champions League competition, the best thing to do would be to find out the latest odds. For example, at most sites, such as Unibet, you will see that Manchester City are the current odds-on favourite team to win the Champions League outright.
They are priced at 9/5 in UK fractional odds, which means 180 in American/moneyline odds and 2.80 in European decimal odds. It also means that Manchester City have a whopping 35.70% implied probability rate of winning.
In other words, if you were to put just a $/€/£20.00 bet (or equivalent currency value) with these odds, and Manchester City do end up winning the Champions League, you would be looking at a total return of $/€/£56.00 (which includes your initial $/€/£20 stake returned + a profit of $/€/£36.00).
