The Favorites

Although other sides will later join from finishing third in their Champions League groups, the current Europa League odds have two English teams as the favorites and they know each other very well.

Arsenal (+700) is the current favorite when it comes to the odds to win Europa League, but North London neighbors Tottenham Hotspur (+800) are not far behind them. Of the two sides, which could be better placed? Arsenal famously lost in the Europa League final two years ago against London rivals Chelsea, when a brace by Eden Hazard helped the West Londoners on their way to a thumping 4-1 win.

Since then, Arsenal has lost its second manager in two seasons in Unai Emery and now has former player Mikel Arteta at the helm. While they haven’t yet improved on their league form, finishing eighth last season for their lowest finish in over two decades, they have become prolific at winning cup ties, grabbing both the F.A. Cup and Community Shield in recent months.

Tottenham Hotspur find themselves playing Europa League football just 17 months after losing the Champions League final to Liverpool in May 2019. While that may make for depressing reading for Lilywhites fans, having Jose Mourinho as their manager could help, and of the two sides, we edge toward Spurs ahead of the group stages. They’re not our tip to win the tournament outright, however.

Other Fancied Teams

We are big fans of the A.C. Milan reboot, and at Europa League odds of +1000, the Italians, who have won all four of their Serie A games so far this season – including the Milan derby against rival Inter – while conceding just one league goal and scoring nine, are a big threat.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored five goals this season, including both in the derby day victory, and he will boost Milan’s Europa League odds immensely, despite now being 39 years old. While Antonio Conte’s Inter takes part in the Champions League this year, Stefano Pioli’s Milan side is now unbeaten in 20 games in all competitions and will be a real danger as the tournament progresses.

Elsewhere, we like the look of Leicester City (+1400) to reach the knockout stages and go to the semifinals of the tournament. If they do so, then backing them at generous Europa League odds to cash out later in the competition could be a lucrative bet to make via Bovada.

Outsiders to Escape Their Groups

There are plenty of other teams who will be hopeful of progressing to the latter stages of the tournament, but Europa League odds don’t necessarily reflect that. Roma (+1800) looks to be a strong side, having brought in Chris Smalling from Manchester United on a permanent deal during the summer for €15 million, along with Chelsea’s Pedro and Arsenal’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan, both of whom were free.

Roma should make the quarterfinals at least, while Dutch pair PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord (both with Europa League odds of +6600) will be confident of running to the latter stages of the Europa League with both sides undefeated after their first five Eredivisie games this season.
