*Odds taken on May 9, 2019

Already one of the favorites to win the trophy, Manchester City are now alone with the shortest odds to win at an average of +500, slightly shorter than the +600 they had last month. Their good start in Premier League has done nothing to dissuade bettors from backing the Cityzens.

Defending champions Real Madrid have seen their odds drop slightly to +750. They are still adjusting to the post-Ronaldo era, but should have a relatively easy go of it in the Group Stage with Roma their only big competition in Group G.

Ronaldo’s new team, Juventus have seen their average odds shorten from +700 in July, to +650 today. They’re off to a good start in Serie A and are favorites to win Group H.
