Bookies backing Barça
Most Internet betting sites are singling Barça out as favourites to win the League, the Champions League and the Copa del Rey. The competitions are a long way from starting, but Guardiola’s side is already fancied above the rest.
Almost every one of the most popular gambling sites are already picking Barcelona as champions of
the major tournaments ahead of Real Madrid.
Champion in euros
At Betfair, you can win 1.86 euros for every euro you put on Barça, while bets on Real Madrid
are retuning 2.26. But there are exceptions, such as Interapuestas, where Barça and Madrid are
level pegging and both will win you 1.90 euros for every euro staked.
Also in Champions League and Copa del Rey
There is confidence in Pep Guardiola and his team across the board, and they also
favourites to win the Champions League at the new Wembley, ahead of defending champions Inter. The
last Copa del Rey may have been won by Sevilla, but the betting houses still believe it will be
Barça that will be lifting the trophy at the end of this season.
2,000 euros for Levante or Hercules
Those who fancy a long shot may fancy betting on one of the newly
promoted sides to win the League. You can win 2,000 euros for every euro bet on the unlikely
circumstance of either Hercules or Levante winning the championship.
