Cardiff, Wales will host the Champions League final on June 3 when Juventus attempts to topple Real Madrid from their lofty perch atop European club football. Treating it much like the Super Bowl of soccer, sportbooks offer many props on the massive event so if betting the moneyline and OVER/UNDER doesn’t rev your engine, it’s likely you’ll be able to find something to wager on with the vast options available to you.
Sportsbook is usually my first stop for props and I’ve broken down some of my favorites that are being offered at the online shop.
Ronaldo to Score 2 or more goals
Real is the favorite in this matchup and for good reason. They have won the competition two of the last three years and they’re fresh off capturing yet another La Liga title. Cristiano Ronaldo, the man who has fueled much of the Spanish giant’s success, has been a goal-scoring machine this season, collecting 25 goals in domestic play along with 10 during Real’s UCL run. His usage has gone up of late and he’s bent the twine two or more times in seven of his last 16 games.
This prop is being offered at a price of +550 and if CR7 was able to achieve the feat, he’d also win the Champions League Golden Boot, usurping Lionel Messi for the honors – that should be motivation enough for the Portuguese forward to bag a couple in the UCL finale.
Real Madrid to Score in Both Halves
Being offered at +300, the line for the defending champs to get a goal in both halves is calling to me. Real has scored at least two goals in all but one game in this UCL campaign (their last one) and that was only because they were hanging on to a hefty lead they built in the first half of their semifinal tie with Atletico.
I expect Real to come out of the gates strongly as to not allow the stout Juve backline to dig in and I see that creating an early first-half goal.
