Europa League 2021 Title Favorites and Odds

The quality in the Europa League is not lacking. There are some very good clubs from the top five leagues in Europe competing here. Some of them even have Champions League experience, while others are good enough to contend for the title right away. Title favourites may change once the third-place teams from the Champions League are added. 

Currently, the most favoured teams to win the title according to our Europa League betting tips are England’s Leicester City and Italy’s Napoli. Both clubs are priced at 12/1 odds to lift the trophy. 

Leicester is a bit hot/cold for the start of the season. But with the likes of Jamie Vardy and James Maddison leading their attack, they are a force to be reckoned with. On the other hand, Napoli has started their season with three victories in three games. Gli Azzurri are full of confidence under the banner of Luciano Spalletti and are led by their Euro 2020 winning captain Lorenzo Insigne. 

Lazio and West Ham United are also pretty high on the favourites list, both priced at 16/1. I Biancocelesti began the season with two wins but lost the game against AC Milan. Nevertheless, they are firm favourites for the Europa League title. The same thing goes for West Ham. The Hammers haven’t lost a game for the start of their season and are led spectacularly by Jamaican striker Michael Antonio. 

Other teams to note include Bayer Leverkusen, Real Sociedad, and Olympique Lyon, all priced at 20/1. Our Europa League betting tips might change once the elimination phase starts and the teams from the Champions League are added.

You can find these members by comparing their win percentages, yield percentages and total profit.

While we offer you free betting tips, there are many sites who don’t provide this. Alongside our tips, we provide transparency.

Can any of the sites who charge a fee or subscription charge say the same?

We don’t recommend you use any site that charges a fee, neither do we see the need for such sites. If they can’t prove how many of their tips win or lose or how much profit they’ve made, we’d advise you steer clear.

Over the last five seasons, home teams have won 47.5% of Europea League matches played. This is superior to the big five leagues of Europe and just short of the Champions Leauge. Home field advantage in terms of average goal advantage is likewise superior with ome teams enjoying an average advantage of +0.43 goals per game in the Europa Leauge.
