Today we see the resumption of the Europa League and the 2016/17 winners are favorites with the sportsbook and with Oddschecker bettors too.
We can exclusively reveal that Manchester United have accounted for a huge 51.67% of bets on the Europa League futures market in the past month. They also lead in terms of handle raking in a massive 56.57% of the money wagered on the market.
United had been in excellent form in the Premier League since January and are understandably short priced favorites at +200.
Inter Milan, who pushed Juventus close in Serie A, were the next popular with bettors, accounting for 14.05% of total bets, but a paltry 7.42% of handle. At +500 they're also second favorites with the books.
Wolves make up 9.84% of bets and 7.68% of handle and at +850 it's easy to see why. A talented young squad could upset some of the big names left in the competition.
Interestingly Bayer Leverkusen only make up 4.43% of total bets but are the second most backed in terms of handle, at 15.1%. They look like the sharp's choice with the young Kai Havertz a talent who could rip apart any team. At +700 they are a great value bet.
