October 2019 - Latest Sports Betting News

October sees loads of sports action, including two Champions League and Europa League matchdays plus another international break with England playing two more Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Champions League 2019/20
The Champions League got under way last month and continues in October with Matchdays two and three.  Only Man City won out of the four English teams involved, so Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea will be hoping for better results in their next two games.

The groups for the English sides are as follows:
Group B - Bayern Munich, Red Star Belgrade, Olympiakos, Tottenham
Group C - Man City, Shakhtar, Dinamo Zagreb, Atalanta
Group E - Liverpool, Napoli, Red Bull Salzburg, Genk
Group H - Chelsea, Valencia, Ajax, Lille

The outright odds for this year's Champions League are as follows:

Man City 10/3 (Ladbrokes)
Barcelona 6/1 (Bet365)
Liverpool 7/1 (Paddy Power)
PSG 8/1 (Bet365)
Juventus 10/1 (Coral)
Bayern Munich 11/1 (Unibet)
Real Madrid 16/1 (Bet365)
Atletico Madrid 20/1 (Ladbrokes)
Napoli 25/1 (William Hill)
Tottenham 33/1 (Unibet)
Borussia Dortmund 40/1 (Unibet)
Ajax 50/1 (Bet365)
Chelsea  50/1 (Bet365)
RB Leipzig 50/1 (Bet365)

Man City are still the outright favourites at 10/3 with Barca drifting slightly as second favourites at 6/1 and last season's champions Liverpool still available at a fairly juicy 7/1 after their matchday 1 defeat in Napoli. With how well Liverpool have started their Premier League campaign, we believe this is still a big price and Liverpool usually turn it on in the later stages.  Last season's Semi Finalists Ajax have come in from a huge starting price of 80/1 and are now available at a more reasonable 50/1, but with the loss of some key players we feel they probably won't emulate last season's achievements.

PSG look quite interesting at 8/1 this year, they have invested further during the summer and would appear to have a squad good enough to mount a challenge, but they have flattered to deceive for a few years now.  Their win against Real Madrid on matchday 1 was impressive and suggests they may have turned a corner this season in their pursuit for the ultimate prize.

Europa League 2019/20 Season
The Europa League also kicked off in September, with British participation being provided by Arsenal, Man Utd, Wolves, Rangers and Celtic.  Man Utd scraped to a fairly unconvincing 1-0 home win against Astana, Celtic got a decent away draw at Rennes and Arsenal + Rangers got off the mark with impressive wins.  Wolves however succumbed to a 1-0 home defeat to Braga and look to be struggling to balance the extra games of the Europa League with their Premier League campagn.

The outright odds for the competition after matchday 1 as follows:

Man Utd 6/1 (Unibet)
Arsenal 6/1 (Unibet)
Sevilla 11/1 (Bet365)
Roma 20/1 (Bet365)
Lazio 25/1 (Bet365)
Porto 28/1 (Bet365)
Wolves 33/1 (Bet365)
Wolfsburg 40/1 (Bet365)
PSV 40/1 (Ladbrokes)
Celtic 100/1 (Bet365)
Rangers 150/1 (Bet365)
Please note all odds are correct at time of article publishing.

Man Utd and Arsenal are the joint outright favourites at 6/1 , showing the dominance of English football at the moment in the top European competitions.  However, United have had a mediocre start to the season and so we wouldn't recommend any bets at this stage.  Arsenal have the sort of attacking style that could see them go far again in the competition.

Porto have come down from their previous price of 50/1 after we recommended an outright bet on them last month, they are now available at 28/1 which still represents some value, but it's always worth remembering that 3rd placed Champions League sides enter this competition in the later stages, so there may well be some big entries at that stage.

International Break - Euro 2020 Qualifiers
October sees another stop in the club action, as there is an international break for some more Euro 2020 qualifiers.  Many of these games are fairly predictable, but certainly lack the excitement of the Premier League and Champions League action.  However they do present some betting opportunities for savvy punters.

England play two qualifiers, away in Czech Republic and Bulgaria, as they seek to cement their place at the top of the group and seal qualification for Euro 2020.
