Interesting to see Tottenham 25/1 after making the final last year, and Spurs could be a great value at that spot with the summer signings the team made, especially Tanguy Ndombele. Though the situation surrounding Christian Eriksen’s contract could be their downfall if he forces a move. It’s likely that the winner will come from the first eight teams or so, but there is value in other and low risk in teams like Borussia Dortmund, Napoli and Inter Milan. 

Real Madrid has the fourth-best odds when the Spanish team isn’t even top two in Spain, let alone Europe. Juventus at 9/1 is an interesting one because the Italian side is among the top four contenders in the entire competition and could be great value there. 

Ajax is another team to watch at 60/1, with oddsmakers surely taking into the account the departures of stars Frenkie de Jong to Barcelona and Matthijs de Ligt to Juventus.
