The odds to win the 2015/16 Europa League were recently released by William Hill.

According to William Hill, Borussia Dortmund is the current favourite to win the 2015/16 Europa League title, as they are currently listed at 8/1 to win. Borussia Dortmund, if you'll remember, is just a couple of years removed from their Champions League runner-up finish. The club finished in 7th place in Bundesliga this year and will now have to play in Europa League in 2015/16.

Napoli, which made it to the Europa League semi-finals last year before losing to Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, currently has the second best odds of winning at 14/1.

After that, there is a bit of a log jam at 16/1:

Athletic Bilbao, 16/1
Liverpool, 16/1
Schalke 04, 16/1
Tottenham, 16/1

Tottenham and Liverpool finished fifth and six respectively in the English Premier League last season, which is why they will both be participating in Europa League action this year. Southampton, which earned the last spot, currently has odds of 33/1 to win the tournament next season.

Here are some of the other teams of interest that will be participating in Europa League next season:

Fiorentina, 18/1
Villarreal, 20/1
St. Etienne, 33/1
West Ham, 40/1
Dnipro, 40/1
Dynamo Moscow, 100/1

As we saw last season, anything can happen in Europa League action. While Borussia Dortmund and Napoli are the current favourites to win, things could change quickly once the tournament gets underway.

Qualifying for Europa League begins July 2nd and runs until August 27th, 2015. The actual competition begins on September 17th, 2015 and will run until May 18th, 2016. The final game will be played in St. Jakob-Park in Basel, Switzerland.

Basel will be playing in Champions League this year and will not have an opportunity to play in the finals at their home stadium.
