The UEFA Champions League begins Round of 16 play this week with four matches Tuesday and four more Wednesday in the knockout phase. Let’s look at the Futures Book odds and offer up game, props and futures picks.

UEFA Champions League Play Resumes This Week With Round Of 16 Matches 

UEFA Champions League resumes this week (Feb. 14-15) with Leg 1 matches in Round of 16 play, so let’s look at the odds at just the right time before 16 becomes 8 and 8 soon becomes 4. Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid are current holders and hope to advance to the UEFA Champions League Final at National Stadium of Wales in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, June 3, 2017 (FOX). The last four winners—and 5 of L8—of this great tournament have either been La Liga’s Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich, and it’s hard to see anyone outside of maybe Atlético Madrid preventing two of those three soccer giants from making it to Cardiff in June.

Here are at fresh Futures Book (Outrights) odds to win the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League tournament from Online sportsbook Intertops which offers an excellent soccer betting menu and easy odds conversion between fractional, decimal and American odds.
