UEFA Europa Conference League Outright Odds for 2023/24
The UEFA Europa Conference League is the third most important international club tournament in European football. The tournament was established in 2021 and, according to the UEFA's concept, was supposed to help teams from non-top leagues and mid-level teams from major European championships compete for international trophies.
In the playoffs, eight teams from the Europa League who finished third in their groups are added to the list of participants, which increases the tournament's competitiveness. The winner of the final, in addition to the trophy, receives a spot in the Europa League group stage for the next season. Thanks to this approach, the tournament has a significant audience and decent prizes: according to the UEFA, teams earned more than 200 million euros in total in the 2022/23 season.
At bookmakers, you can bet on both individual matches of the tournament and its overall outcomes. The UEFA Europa Conference League winner odds 2023/24 are the most popular outright betting option. This is a bet on a team that will win the tournament final in the new season. Due to the format of the tournament and high level of competition, it is difficult to predict the winner, but the odds here are also high. Below, you can check out the main UEFA Europa Conference League favorites according to bookmakers:

Bookmakers see the highest chances of victory with Aston Villa, which is the sole representative of England in the group stage of the Conference League. Despite being considered a mid-level team in their own championship, in such a tournament, the club looks significantly stronger compared to other rivals. According to Transfermarkt, Aston Villa's squad is valued at 600 million euros, which is twice as much as their nearest competitor, Fiorentina (246 million euros). For the club, this is the best opportunity to win a trophy this season, so winning the Conference League will be their main goal.
The previously mentioned Fiorentina is another favourite for the UEFA Europa Conference League winner odds. Last season, the team reached the tournament final, where they lost 1- 2 to West Ham. Such success is the result of the leadership of Vincenzo Italiano, the team’s manager. Under his management, the club shows modern attacking football, which many rivals are simply not ready for.

About UEFA Europa Conference League Betting
The Conference League is an international club football tournament established under the auspices of the UEFA in 2021. In terms of status, it is inferior to the Champions League and Europa League, so teams from the upper half of the tables of top national championships and the best teams from non-top leagues take part in it. The number of participants from each country is determined by the UEFA ranking, which is based on the performance of all the teams of the country in international tournaments over the last five seasons.
The UEFA Europa Conference League is the largest UEFA tournament in terms of the number of participants. In the 2023/24 season, 178 teams from 54 countries perform in it. The tournament is divided into three stages:
- Qualifying stage. 160 teams participate in it. After four rounds of two-legged matches, the top 22 clubs advance to the main tournament.
- Group stage. 32 teams (22 qualifying winners + 10 clubs eliminated in the last qualifying round of the Europa League) are divided into eight groups of four participants each. During the group stage, each team plays six matches. The winners of each group reach the round of 16. The teams finishing second move to the round of 32.
- Playoffs. Knockout matches begin from the round of 32. Teams that finished second play against clubs ranking third in their Europa League groups. The winner of the two-legged series advances to the next round. This format is kept until the final. The 2023/24 UEFA Europa Conference League final will be held on May 29, 2024 at the Agia Sophia Stadium in Athens.

The UEFA Europa Conference League outright odds offer fewer options, compared to more prestigious tournaments. However, most bookmakers do provide odds for the winner of the tournament. But due to the tournament format, odds for each team may change from round to round. Another UEFA Europa Conference League betting option is to stake on a team to reach the next round of the playoffs. In knockout matches, the club that wins based on the total score of two matches advances to the next round. This allows you to bet not only on individual games but also on the outcome of the entire series.
Factors to consider when betting on the UEFA Europa Conference League
For "second-tier" teams from top championships, the Conference League is the best opportunity to win an international trophy. Most of the tournament participants represent countries from the second or even third tens of the UEFA coefficient table, and here, the level of competition is lower compared to the Champions League or Europa League.
When assessing the team’s chances in a match, we recommend paying attention to their schedules. For example, in the schedule of Aston Villa, the favourite according to the UEFA Europa Conference League odds, there might be meetings against Arsenal, West Ham, or Tottenham before European cup matches. Such a schedule can affect the team's form, which can lead to the loss of points in the Conference League.
We don’t recommend placing outrights on the winner of the UEFA Conference League until the start of the playoffs. The format implies that eight teams from the Europa League will join the tournament in the round of 32. This will definitely affect the UEFA Europa Conference League odds and the chances of the remaining clubs.
