One of the most popular forms of betting on the Champions League is to pick what team is going to win after the final. But there are plenty of other options available.

Picking the winner of a game is still a popular way to bet

Even if the glitz and drama of a big Champions League bout tend to be much higher than for a regular season game in mid-November, classic betting methods are still very popular in the Champions League games. Picking the winner is a popular method of placing a bet without having to spend too much time or effort researching stats and the like.

However, if you're placing a bet for the final game or for the deciding match, it's important to be aware of the fact that these bets often only account for the score after the final whistle. Say, for example, that you have picked team A to come away as the winner, but that the score after the final whistle is what decides the outcome after the bet. If you instead wish to have the bet count over extra time and eventual penalties, you have to choose a betting format that allows you to do so.

Live betting

Live betting is a betting format that has been popular for quite some time and that continues to grow in popularity for every year that passes. Live betting lends itself very well to Champions League games and other games of a similar nature. More often than not, there is a wide array of different betting formats available to players. If you're interested in learning more about live betting and what different bets one can place, the best thing to do is to turn to your bookmaker and have a look through the odds that are on offer.

Betting on how an individual player will perform

There is something incredibly special about the cup format as a spectator. Just about anything can, and most likely will, happen during the course of the cup being played and there are upsets that can happen over the course of two games that wouldn't make an impact during league play.

Due to this, some bettors shy away from placing bets on the result of individual matches. Because the stakes and uncertainty can make it too difficult to have faith in one's own analysis, but for those still interested in placing wagers, it can be interesting to choose instead to place a wager on how an individual player will perform. This can be an entertaining thing to follow throughout the course of a game. It gives the player some freedom in how they choose to approach a bet or a specific situation.
