UEFA Cup Outright Betting

Odds to win the UEFA Cup 2006-2007

Spanish club Sevilla were convincing winners of last year's UEFA Cup, dismantling Middlesbrough 4-0 in the final. Can the Spaniards replicate their form and win the trophy again this season? The bookmakers believe they can. Bet365 make Seville 8/1 favourites, but this year's tournament is wide open. With most contenders at long odds, the UEFA Cup may be harder to predict, but the payouts are more attractive.

This will be the 49th running of the European football tournament. Eighty clubs take part in this year's competition from qualification through to the group stages and elimination rounds. Hamden Park in Glasgow will host the UEFA Cup final on 16 May 2007.

Runners-up Middlesbrough had a dismal season in the Premiership last year and didn't qualify for this year's tournament. But three other English teams will take part: Tottenham, Newcastle and Blackburn. Spurs are 9/1 second favourites, but there are question marks over their goal scoring abilities.

Newcastle are perennial participants in this competition. Do they have what it takes to go all the way this year? At 16/1 bet odds, some punters might be tempted. Blackburn are a slightly weaker side this season, which explains their outsider status at 40/1.

Ajax are a vastly improved team and will challenge for the Dutch league title. They are a juicy 16/1 odds to be this year's cup winners. Those who fancy a speculative wager should look no further than Derry City at 1000/1. The quality of Irish football has increased dramatically and Derry could yet pull off some more surprises.
