Best Champions League Longshots

Posted by Jay Sanin on 10/5/2016 6:21:43 AM

UEFA Champions League competition is usually dominated by a small pool of mega clubs who have the money and the players to sweep aside even the best competition. But while the public will be all over the Barcelonas and Real Madrids of the world to win the competition, where are some very good looking longshots whose odds will lead to better payouts, with talent to match those traditional powers.

Borussia Dortmund – 16/1 odds

As the team that is perennially the second best in German soccer, Borussia Dortmund is usually overlooked in competitions like the Champions League in lieu of teams like Bayern Munich. But Dortmund has shown attacking prowess on par with the best clubs in the world and at 16/1 odds are one of the best looking value plays as the Champions League gets set to kick into high gear as the group stage wears on.

Their viability as candidates to win the Champions League was on display last week, as they managed to grab a point in a draw at home against Real Madrid, one of those elite clubs that Dortmund would have to dispatch later in the tournament to win it. With playmakers like Christian Pulisic and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, there's no reason to believe Dortmund can't get the job done.

Tottenham Hotspur – 40/1 odds

Tottenham are a longshot in the purest sense of the word at a healthy 40/1 odds to lift the trophy at the end of this Champions League campaign. But Spurs have been unbelievable in Premier League play and, despite a rocky start to the Champions League in a loss to Monaco, managed to right the ship in their second group stage match. They currently sit in second in their group, and should qualify for the next round of play, barring a huge meltdown in the final four matches of the group stage.

Spurs will get Harry Kane back eventually this season, who will provide another dimension to an attack that has been dominant without him. With an odds calculator showing what a generous payout backing Tottenham in this competition would yield, this is a longshot worth taking a look at.
