Odds: FIFA Coach of the Year Award


The FIFA Coach of the Year Award is, like the Ballon d'Or for best player, being contested by members of Spain, Barcelona and Real Madrid. Here are the odds for the award.

Unlike the way his former star player Lionel Messi is for the Ballon d'Or, Pep Guardiola is not favoured to win this year's FIFA Coach of the Year Award.

Last year's winner failed to win La Liga which, of course, was won by Real Madrid. Guardiola has also been away from soccer since the end of last season which has raised a few eyebrows from those that thought he shouldn't have even been nominated for this year.

The man credited with turning his squad into one of the greatest teams of all time is available right now at for 12.00. But any money on him winning might as well be down the drain.

His rival at Real Madrid will be offered at 6.50 to win his second title. Although he was able to dethrone Barcelona to win La Liga for the first time in his career (and the first time in four years for Real), Jose Mourinho's start this season has been rocky as the big-money club now finds itself in third place. It'd be very surprising if Mourinho was to emerge from the podium with the award. But just imagine how amazing his acceptance speech would be.

The overwhelming favourite to win the award is without question the man who led Spain to its second straight European Championship while at the same time winning its third consecutive major international championship, both feats have never been accomplished before. His predecessor Luis Aragones was treated as a hero in Spain, but Vicente Del Bosque is seen as a legend. The odds aren't that valuable, but it is as close to a lock as the awards are going to get. He is available for 1.13.

Try mixing up some of the lower odds into a parlay to max out the value. For example, a $50 bet on Messi to win the Ballon d'Or, Del Bosque to win Coach of the Year, and Abby Wambach of the USA to win Women's Player of the Year right now would payout $97.46 at
