Euro 2020 Winner Odds: Favourites
Take a look at the competition favourite below. This is only one of the many favourites that might be victorious in the end. This assumption is based on facts about the team’s current state and quality of players. Also, past performance plays a significant role in making these types of predictions.
France – 5.00
If we had to pick just one team to win this year’s tournament, then it’s hard to look too far past France.
At the time of writing, France’s Euro 2020 winner odds are around 5.00. This means that they are the favourite to win the competition. Given that they are current World Cup holders, they’re an easy bet to make, but they are also more than justified.
To win the elite international tournaments such as Euro 2020, a team needs to have a selection of superstars involved. The likes of Paula Pogba and Kylian Mbappe will undoubtedly grab the headlines. However, France’s most influential player, for us at least, is that of N’golo Kante.
The midfield dynamo has been a revelation since he was part of the Premier League winning side with Leicester. He then followed this up with a big-money move to Chelsea the following year and repeated the task of becoming Premier League champions.
To be honest, there’s a lot of players we could list here. Their Euro 2020 outright odds of 5.00 may seem short to some, but we feel like it offers great value. If France doesn’t win, it will only be their own undoing, which they have proved in recent years to be something of the French teams of old.
Below we have included a table of the latest Euro 2020 winner odds:
Euro 2020 outrights odds: list of outsiders
This year’s Euro 2020 favourites odds are longer than most years, which highlights that there is value to be found outside of the main picks.
What’s special about the European Championships is that it’s not always the favourites that dominate the tournament. One of the most iconic was that of Greece in 2004. They defied odds of 150.00 to win, sparking one of the biggest upsets in the history of the sport, let alone the tournament.
Choosing an outsider is not easy, but here is a couple of things that you implement into your betting strategy to spot them early.
Track qualifying progress
Qualifying can be a pretty mundane affair for some teams. Most of the top teams get through pretty easily, but you can gauge to how well a team is performing from these stages alone.
Even teams that have qualified might not necessarily be playing well.
For example, if one of the top teams have scrapped through a couple of games, drawn or even lost games, then they might not be living up to their Euro 2020 outright odds.
The flip side of this is finding value in overachieving teams. There is always at least one team that overachieves in the qualifying stages and these could be a good each-way bet as a result.
Young Team Over Old Team
Experience counts for a lot in these competitions, but the bookmakers will have these teams priced pretty tightly. The value comes from the unknown and there are few things more unpredictable than that of youth.
Try and find countries that have young players who are in great form for their clubs. The Netherlands would be a great example of this in Euro 2020 and offer better value than say, an ageing Spain team.
Euro 2020 is going to be unique in that there is no one host city. This is going to offer a strange dynamic to proceedings, as a home advantage is thought to be a huge benefit.
That being said, no host-country has won the European Championships since France in 1984. As a result, this blows this year’s tournament wide open and is one of the reasons why the Euro 2020 outright odds are so closely bunched.
Odds England winner of Euro 2020: is it possible?
England is always one of the talking points when it comes to any international tournament. The fact of the matter is that they have never won anything since 1966.
The countries run to the semi-final of the 2018 World Cup were a huge boost and you have to say that they have a chance this summer. Their Euro 2020 England winner odds of 6.50 look really good value, especially when you consider that they will be playing some games at Wembley, along with both the semi-final and final should they get there.
Another box that they tick, as we mentioned above, is that they have a young team. Even at this early stage, the manager, Gareth Southgate, will likely know who 8 of his starting 11 will be. The final few spots will likely be based on what formation he wants to play.
Are the Euro 2020 England winner odds of 6.50 a good bet? We think so, although they will need some luck along the way to avoid France, ideally altogether, but at worst until the final.
