The 6th edition of the annual Heineken Champions Cup will start this November. For the next half a year, rugby teams from six countries will compete for the trophy. 2020 European Challenge Cup predictions can already name the main favorite of the competition.
This time, the rugby union tournament will host teams from England, Scotland, Wales, France, Italy, and Russia. According to online sportsbook news in the UK, British and French rugby players lead the best 2020 Heineken Champions Cup odds.
Scarlets and London Wasps are among the main favorites
Two British rugby teams share one of the highest chances to win 2020 European Challenge Cup.
Wasps from England have 21/4 odds at Betsson Sportsbook. Despite the last time Wasps didn’t succeed at the tournament and finished at the 8th place, they lead one of the best odds this season. They won the European Challenge Cup once in 2003 but seem to be close to victory next year.
Another possible winner from the UK is Welsh Scarlets. One of the strongest rugby teams from this country, Scarlets have 7/1 odds to bet on. The team will play its first match against outsiders, London Irish, so it has good chances to start the new season properly.
Toulon tops 2020 European Challenge Cup predictions
The rugby team from France leads the best odds, according to 2020 European Challenge Cup predictions. RC Toulonnais hasn’t won the competition yet but was the runner-up twice, in 2010 and 2012. This season, online sportsbooks in the UK predict Toulon to win the first place in the tournament.
Toulon can seriously compete for the European Challenge Cup next year. The team is experienced in winning big tournaments, which include the Heineken Cup. Also, Toulon is a frequent winner of local French competitions, such as Rugby Pro D2 and Yves Du Manoir Challenge.
