UEFA Europa League Outright Odds for 2023/24
The UEFA Europa League is the second most prestigious club international tournament in European football. Despite a significant difference in prize money compared to the the Champions League (according to the UEFA, Champions League teams earned nearly 2 billion euros last year, while Europa League teams earned 500 million euros), the interest of spectators in the tournament is also significant. This is largely due to the participations of teams from top leagues that, because of intense competition in their domestic championships, failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League or finished in third place in the group stage.
Bookmakers give the opportunity to bet on both match outcomes and outright options. For example, UEFA Europa League winner odds 2023/24 refer to betting on the team that will take the UEFA Cup in the new season. And taking into account the format of the tournament and high competition, the odds for such bets are always high. Below, you can check out the main UEFA Europa League favorites according to bookmakers:

Liverpool is considered the main favourite to win the tournament ahead of its start. In recent years, the club has been considered one of the strongest teams in the world, however, last season they faced a slump: the fifth place in the championship and exiting the UEFA Champions League in the round of 16 against Real Madrid. To fix the problems, during the off-season, Liverpool completely renewed the midfield with Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, and Ryan Gravenberch replacing Fabinho, Naby Keïta, and Jordan Henderson. The English team comfortably holds the status of the most prestigious club in the group stage and, therefore, deserves to be considered the main contender for victory.
Among the UEFA Europa League winner odds, Bayer 04 and AS Roma also stand out. The German club is the semi-finalist of the last tournament. Under the guidance of head coach Xabi Alonso, the team shows entertaining and productive football. This summer, Bayer 04 was able to acquire players for problematic positions, and now they are well-prepared to at least repeat their previous success. AS Roma is the last year finalist. They are still managed by José Mourinho, who knows how to prepare teams for European competitions, so it's unwise to discount their chances.

Sevilla is the most successful club in the history of the tournament. The players of this team have won the competition’s trophy seven times. Notably, all these titles were won in the 21st century. It is this club that is the current UEFA Europa League champion. Thanks to this, the team qualified for the UEFA Champions League. If the FC finishes ranking third in the group stage of the UCL-2023/24, they will have the opportunity to defend their title.
The second place in the number of UEFA Europa League trophies is shared by four clubs: Inter Milan, Juventus, Liverpool and Atlético Madrid – with three trophies each. The Spanish Atlético was the last to join this group – the team won the tournament in the 2017/18 season. In the new season, among these clubs, only Liverpool is participating in the group stage of the UEFA Europa League. You can find more information about other UEFA Europa League winners below:

UEFA Europa League Relegation Odds for 2023/24
Usually, the relegation odds format of betting refers to staking on a team that will be relegated from a tournament.

According to UEFA Europa League odds, the main underdog in this competition is the Serbian club TSC. The FC is participating in the group stage of the European cup for the first time in its history and will play against West Ham, Olympiacos and Freiburg this fall: the team’s path in the tournament promises to be challenging.

About UEFA Europa League Betting
The Europa League is an annual international club tournament. The list of participants changes every year and depends on the performance of teams in their championships and national cup tournaments. The number of clubs from each country is determined by the UEFA ranking, which is based on the results of all teams representing a country over the last five seasons.
The dates for the 2023/24 UEFA Europa League: from August 8, 2023 to May 22, 2024. A total of 58 teams will perform in the tournament. It is divided into three stages:
- Qualifying Stage. 27 teams take part in this stage that is synchronised with the Champions League qualifiers and consists of two rounds. All participants are divided into pairs. To determine the winner of the confrontation, rivals play two matches: home and away. After this stage, 10 teams reach the main stage of the tournament.
- Group stage. 32 teams are divided into eight groups of four participants. Within each group, every team plays six matches. As a result of the group stage, the group winners enter the round of 16, the teams ranking second reach the round of 32, and the teams in third place go to the round of 32 of the Conference League.
- Playoffs. This stage involves 24 teams. In the round of 32, in addition to the Europe League clubs, eight teams from the Champions League who finished third in their groups also perform. After the draw, the team finds out its rival, against whom it will play home and away. The winner is determined by the total score of the two matches and advances to the next playoff round. The tournament final will be held on May 22, 2024 at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
UEFA Europa League Markets on UKClubSport
The tournament may not match the status of the Champions League, however, bookmakers are actively working on the selection of betting markets to offer punters the maximum choice of options. In addition to 1/X/2 markets, you’ll find many other UEFA Europa League odds 2023/24 options, such as O/U bets on different statistical metrics (goals, cards, etc.), Asian handicaps, as well as player props and much more.
Among the UEFA Europa League outright odds, you can place bets on the tournament winner. However, the odds on the future trophy holder may change dramatically from round to round: they may depend on the status of the future rival, the tournament grid and other factors. Another outright option is a team to reach the next playoff round. Since the winner of the confrontation is determined by the results of a two-match series, you can place bets not only on the outcome of an individual game, but also on the result of both meetings.
Factors to consider when betting on the UEFA Europa League
If you want to bet on the tournament winner, it’s recommended to wait for the start of the playoffs. The Europa League format implies that, in the round of 32, eight clubs from the Champions League will join the participants. These teams are not taken into account before the group stage of the Europa League, so the odds to win the UEFA Europa League can change significantly.
In UEFA Europa League betting on 1/X/2 markets, especially in the group stage, we recommend paying attention to rivals’ schedules. For example, Liverpool will face Union Saint-Gilloise. However, a few days after the game, the team is set to face Manchester United in their domestic championship, and this will be a more important match for them. That’s why, for the Europa League game, Liverpool may not take the field in their optimal lineup, thus giving the rival a better chance for a favourable outcome.
