The start of Euro 2020 is just around the corner. Throughout this guide, we will be looking at who the front runners are for betting on Euro 2020 winner and which countries look like offering the best value.
Betting on Euro 2020 winner: odds and predictions
You’re going find a plethora of markets to bet on within the competition. One of the most popular will be that of the Euro 2020 outright. This market is basically where you look to predict the winner of the tournament.
There’s going to be a large period where you can bet on this market, amongst others, before the tournament starts. Betting on Euro 2020 winner markets will be live with most bookies several months before the start.
The plus points for this are that you often get the best odds the earlier you bet. When betting on Euro 2020 winner before the start you need to be aware that the market that you use will be an ante-post betting market.
Ante-post betting markets are those that are produced by the bookmaker several days, weeks or even months before that event starts. The benefits of betting on ante-post are that you often get inflated odds. The main reason behind this is that it includes teams that may not qualify, so it’s not a final list of which teams will compete.
Ante-post markets do have their downsides, however. One of the biggest is that non-runners will be classed as a loss. This means that if you’re betting on Euro 2020 winner and they fail to qualify, your bet will lose.
Another point to note is that ante-post odds will fluctuate. This will usually be based on things like form, current performances, injuries, suspensions and how they have fared in the qualifying rounds.
Below we have included a table to highlight some of the Euro 2020 winner odds and which bookmakers are offering the best value right now.

France winner of Euro 2020: 5.00
France is the Euro 2020 favourites, and rightly so. They are the reigning World Cup winners and they have a strength and depth in their squad that few countries can rival. They were runner up in the 2016 European Championships and have been heavily backed to go one step better this time.
An imperative feature for any winning side is a consistent, yet experienced squad. The likes of Griezmann, Mbappe, Kante, Pogba and Varane make up an impressive spine to the team. You’ve then got several players who fit in around them to create the balance and flair that successful team’s need.
At odds of around 5.00 (subject to change), you have to say that France is this year’s team to watch.
England winner of Euro 2020: 6.50
Our betting on Euro 2020 winner now brings us the 2nd favourites, England. It’s been a bumpy ride in international football over the last few decades for England. However, a good run at the 2018 World Cup has reignited the nation’s passions for the national team and many are expecting them to go well this time around.
The team has blown the competition away in qualifying. They are young, hungry and with the manager, Gareth Southgate, offering that calming influence that is needed, they have a chance. Best priced at 6.5 they may not offer the same value as France, but they will be there or thereabouts, especially given that they will be playing at Wembley at some point as well. (it is important to mention that all odds are subject to change)
Netherlands winner of Euro 2020: 13.00
The Dutch have had a horrid time in international football over the last few years. They failed to qualify for the last European Championship or the last World Cup.
But they are a team on the up. They have a young squad, but it’s about as exciting as you will find. The likes of Frenkie de Jong, Donny van de Beek, Memphis Depay, Matthijs de Ligt and Virgil van Dijk are all going to be key men to watch.
It could be that a win on the Euro 2020 outright comes too soon for the young squad, but best priced at 13.00, they look a great each-way bet if nothing else.
