Features of Odds for the Europa League
The main feature of the Europa League is the dark horses. Almost every year there are several teams that reach the decisive stages of the playoffs, although most of the experts were written off at the group stage.The most recent example is Red Bull Salzburg, who managed to reach the semifinals in the last draw.
Undoubtedly, there will also be dark horses in the 2018/2019 season, and if you take the time to analyse and see a strong underdog in one of the participants, you can very well make money on it.
The performance of the tournament is quite high, and therefore it is safe to use strategies for betting on football. Again, there are a lot of bets on outsider goals, which will bring profit in the long term. Before betting on any match of the Europa League with the participation of clubs from the top 5, be sure to look into the calendar. Closer to the quarterfinals you can place advantageous long-term bets on the winner of the tournament.
The last few seasons the cup went to the main favourite:
- Manchester United
- Atletico Madrid

The favourites of the Europa League this season are two representatives of London – Chelsea and Arsenal .The chances of the aristocrats on the trophy are quoted a little higher and are estimated by the odds of 8.00 for Chelsea, and the Arsenal chances are accepted with odds of 10. Sevilla – 17 closes the top three candidates for the victory in the Europa League .
Also, bookmakers appreciate the prospects of Marseille – 16, Leipzig – 17, Bayer – 18.46 and Lazio – 17. Further Villarreal – 23, Betis and Zenit – 29.
