Europa League Betting – Betting Tips, Odds & Free Bets
The Europa League is Europe’s secondary intercontinental competition.
Yes, it plays second fiddle to the Champions League in terms of prestige but just look at the most recent winners – Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Sevilla (x3) and Chelsea.
The Europa League is far from the poor competition that it’s often painted as and the amount of quality football for fans to enjoy means that Europa League betting is incredibly popular.

Europa League Update – October 2020
The draw has been made for the Europa League group stage and we look to have some great ties to look forward to. The three English clubs in the draw, Arsenal, Leicester and Tottenham, will all fancy their chances of not only qualifying, but winning their groups.
Here is a look at who they will face:
Group B – Arsenal, Rapid Vienna, Molde, Dundalk
Group G – Braga, Leicester, AEK Athens, Zorya Luhansk
Group J – Tottenham, Ludogorets, ASK Linz, Royal Antwerp
The Europa League is a tough competition to bet on at this stage because a number of Champions League clubs will fall into this competition after their group stage.
However, regardless of who comes into the Europa League, expect Arsenal and Tottenham to be amongst the favourites to win outright for the duration of their time here.
Currently, they are 8/1 joint favourites, Arsenal are 8/1 with Unibet and Tottenham are 8/1 with bet365.
Europa League Free Bets
There are so many teams in the group stage of the Europa League that Thursdays are split into two different rounds of fixtures.
That presents a huge number of betting opportunities and including some generous offers for punters to take advantage of.
Europa League free bets are the most popular of these betting offers.
The best bookies provide these free bets both to new and existing users for each and every round of the Europa League.
Some of these Europa League free bets are specific to individual matches while others allow you the chance to place risk free bets on whatever match and market you wish.
Another promotion that you’ll find the bookies offering are Europa League enhanced odds offers.
The bookies sometimes use these enhanced odds offers to boost the price on a firm favourite winning a match while others use them for multiples, boosting the odds on a selection of teams winning their Europa League games.
When you dig into the terms and conditions of enhanced odds offers you’ll often see that the enhanced portion of the odds are paid out in the form of free bets.
That’s something to keep an eye on when weighing up the various Europa League betting offers available to you.
As the name suggests, Europa League free bets give you the chance to have a bet on any of the markets available without risking your own money. Another important condition of free bets, however, is that the stake is not returned along with your winnings. We’d suggest, therefore, that they are best used for your Europa League betting predictions with the longer odds because your return will be bigger and you’re not risking your own funds after all.
How to Claim Europa League Free Bets
Here at Freebets.uk we work hard to make it as easy as possible for you to claim the various Europa League free bets offers available.
We update our Europa League betting page every week to ensure it includes the most up to date betting offers available.

When you find a Europa League betting offer that takes your fancy on our page, the process for claiming them is relatively straight forward but does alter slightly depending on the offer and the bookie.
The first thing to do is go through the list of free bets and then click on the link taking you to the offer of your choice. Full terms and conditions of the offer will be available on the bookmaker’s website but the very first thing to check is whether it is an offer solely for new customers and, therefore, whether or not you already have an account with them.
If you are eligible for the offer, it’s then time to check exactly how to take part.
Some Europa League free bets require you to first place a qualifying bet, others require that you deposit a certain amount into your account while some are only available after you enter a promo code.
There are also often terms and conditions in terms of how you use your free bet when it’s credited to your account including minimum odds requirements.
