Welcome to our updated UEFA Champions League betting predictions sponsored by Zodiacbet. The bookies tipped Bayern Munich and PSG as second and third favourites to win the UEFA Champions League in 2022, behind favourites and last year’s beaten finalists Manchester City. However, since then – as you will see in our CL betting predictions below, Liverpool have made a challenge now we are deep into the knock out stage of the Champions League.
Manchester City Are Still Favourites To Win The UCL 2021/22
Manchester City lost to Chelsea in last season’s final but manager Pep Guardiola is desperate to win the Champions League, the one trophy that has eluded him at City. All betting predictions say City are favourites, reflected in their brilliant season that has pushed them top of the Premier League.
However, they lost to Spurs recently and Liverpool’s fine form have convinced some that the Premier League title race isn’t over after all. This in turn makes some pundits wonder if Manchester City could also be beaten in the Champions League too.
Ironically, notes these UEFA Champions League betting predictions, it was Harry Kayne who destroyed City in their recent Spurs defeat. This was the world class striker they tried and failed to sign in the summer. Could the absence of a genuine “Number 9” be what City miss, when you consider that Liverpool have Mo Salah and Bayern Munich have Robert Lewandowski.
It is why these betting predictions think there is still some distance to go in the Premiership race, even though City remain firm favourites for a reason.
You can argue as much as you like which one of those two strikers, Salah and Lewandowski, is currently the best in Europe, but most would agree – certainly these betting predictions do – that one of them surely is, and both are miles better than anyone else currently leading the line in Europe.
Manchester City to Win the Champions League: Winner Outright Odds
Last season’s beaten Champions League finalists started the season as clear favourites to win the Champions League in 2022 at odds of 4.0, with many UEFA Champions League betting predictions almost awarding them the trophy before a ball had been kicked.
After breezing through the group stages by finishing top of Group A with four wins and two defeats – ahead of PSG and RB Leipzig – few betting predictions were changing. they then showed their power by demolishing Sporting Lisbon 5-0 in Portugal.
Manchester City can now be bet at 3.5 to win the UCL 2022, notes our UEFA Champions League betting predictions. Given how far they have progressed (in a tricky group) and what a brilliant season they have had, to shorten to just 3.5 is still quite generous and these UCL betting predictions wouldn’t argue if you bet on City to win.

PSG’s Odds To Win The UCL 21/22
It might seem strange that PSG were third favourites in most UEFA Champions League betting predictions to win outright. After all, as our Champions League betting guide pointed out at the time, they were not even Champions of France.
Firstly, PSG had an excellent manager in ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, noted a lot of betting predictions.
Secondly, they showed in their defeat of Barcelona in the CL last 16 last season that this is a capable team, with two of the biggest stars in world football in Kylian Mbappé and Neymar. And then of course they signed Messi, which seems to have bewitched some rival UEFA Champions League betting predictions – and punters!
They also signed Real Madrid legend and captain Sergio Ramos, former Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum and Player of the Tournament in the recent Euros, Gianluigi Donnarumma. They also signed Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan.
But none of this impressed these UEFA Champions League betting predictions.
Our feeling remains that PSG is a collection of money-chasing superstars, not a team to compete with the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool or Bayern Munich.
We are very cautious in our UEFA Champions League betting predictions this year because the competition is simply so high, but one prediction we are very confident about: PSG will not win the Champions League.
Bayern Munich’s Odds of Winning the Champions League 2021/22
Bayern Munich, according to these betting predictions, is a much better tip to win the Champions League than PSG. Manager Julian Nagelsmann told a club fanzine soon after arriving that he “despises” losing.
Bayern have looked their magisterial best for much of the season and these UEFA Champions League betting predictions would not argue with you if you bet on Bayern to win the Champions League outright at these odds.
For Bayern, winning the Champions League remains a massive challenge, concede these betting predictions. But unlike Manchester City now – and of course Liverpool – Bayern has one big advantage. Bar a big upset they will win their 10th Bundesliga title in a row. At time of writing they are six points clear of their only challenger, Borussia Dortmund, and our betting predictions have had them as massive favourites to win the Bundesliga before the season even started.
However, like City, they have been reminded recently they are human after all, with that 4-2 defeat to Bochum.
But in Germany, unlike in England, there is almost an assumption about who will win the league. This means that while City and Liverpool will struggle to rest key players before crucial Champions League matches, Bayern can probably afford to do so.
These UEFA Champions League betting predictions think Bayern Munich would certainly be a solid bet to win the Champions League.
Liverpool’s Odds of Winning the Champions League 2021/22
While some teams are wilting, these betting predictions think Liverpool are getting stronger and stronger: nine wins in a row at the time of writing, having beaten Leeds United 6-0 in the Premier League and Inter 2-0 away in the Champions League first leg in the round of 16.
Jurgen Klopp strengthened his team in January and with the return of Salah and Mane from AFCON, these betting predictions think Liverpool are such dangerous opponents, with so many goal threats.
Odds of 5.2 on Liverpool to win have to be attractive, according to our betting predictions.
And what of holders Chelsea? They are back at 9.00. Surely those odds are too long? Only a crazy or a drunk would rule out Chelsea but we think that’s actually about right for a team that has been largely winning but isn’t perhaps signing quite like City, Bayern or Liverpool.
Anyone else worth betting on? Not according to these UEFA Champions League betting predictions. Ajax are gorgeous to watch and are hugely impressive but they probably don’t have quite enough in this company.
