2023-24 Liga I Winner Odds & Favorites
Here’s a look at the 2023-24 Liga I winner odds and the favorites to win the championship from the best football odds sites:
CFR Cluj @ 3.0 (2/1)
CFR Cluj has been one of the most successful Romanian clubs in recent years. They finished second in the last regular season and third in the championship playoffs. They have won the Liga I title five times in the last six years. The club of Cluj-Napoca, CFR, is the favorite to win the championship this year, as they have a pretty good roster that can beat any team.
FCSB @ 3.50 (5/2)
FCSB holds the record for most Liga I titles (26), which is eight championships more than the second-place club, Dinamo București. They have been away from the Romanian SuperLiga titles for a while, as their last win was in the 2014-15 season. FCSB finished in second place in the championship playoffs last season, but they will be looking to improve and win the title this time.
Farul Constanta @ 4.40 (17/5)
Farul Constanta found themselves one of the favorites after their great performance last season. They won their first Romanian SuperLiga title in the 2022-23 season, and they will be looking to defend their title. The Romanian CDM Tudor Baluta is one of their key players, alongside the best player of the last season, forward Denis Alibec, will try to make a difference this time again.
CS U Craiova @ 6.50 (11/2)
CS U Craiova’s chances won’t be as good as the first three favorites, but they are capable of making the upset. The Romanian club has never won the Liga I title before, and they have been average in the last two years. CS U Craiova was so close last season to qualifying for the championship playoffs, but they finished in seventh place, also losing in the European play-off final to CFR Cluj.
Rapid București @ 9.0 (8/1)
Rapid Bucuresti finished fifth in both the regular season and the championship playoffs last season. They last won the title three times, the latest in the 2002-03 season. Marko Dugandzic finished as the top scorer in the championship playoffs tournament and will be dangerous next season if he stays in the club.
Football SuperLiga Romania 2023-24 Format & Overview
The Romanian SuperLiga is organized in a relegation/promotion style with Liga II and consists of 16 teams, each playing 30 matches in the regular season. Then points are halved, and the top 6 teams continue with 10 games in playoffs (double round-robin). The bottom 10 teams participate in the play-out round and play nine games each (single round-robin), giving a wide room for prematch and online betting activity.
The last two teams from Liga I get relegated directly, while the 13th and 14th teams play against the 3rd and 4th clubs from Liga II in a playoff-style game for relegation. To motivate the play-out part of the table, two top teams from this stage meet in the European play-off semi-final for a place in international competitions. The winner then faces the club from the play-off round in the final game of the European play-off.
The Liga I season starts on July 14 and will run for almost 11 months. Three teams got promoted to Liga I this season: Politehnica Iași, Otelul Galati, and Dinamo București. On the other hand, three teams got relegated: Mioveni, Chindia Targoviste, and Arges Pitesti.

Rapid Bucuresti to Win @ 9.0 (8/1)
Rapid Bucuresti is one of the best risky picks to win Liga I this season. They perform really well as underdogs, as they did exactly that last season.
