Euro 2020 Betting Odds
The pre-tournament Euro 2021 betting odds sees England at 5/1 with William Hill and France at 5/1 with Betfair vying for favouritism, but there’s very little to choose between them and the other leading contenders…
- Belgium can be backed at 13/2 with Betfair
- Spain are 15/2 with bet365*
- Germany are 8/1 with SpreadEx
- Portugal are on offer at 9/1 with Betway to retain the title
- Italy are 10/1 with BoyleSports
- Netherlands are available at 14/1 with 888sport
Group A Winner:
- Italy – 4/7 (William Hill)
- Switzerland – 11/2 (Betfair)
- Turkey – 13/2 (Betway)
- Wales – 9/1 (Betfair)
Italy will be expected to top Group A with them facing all three of their group rivals (Turkey, Switzerland and Wales) in Rome.
Switzerland are now seasoned campaigners in the finals of major competitions and will know what to expect. Turkey have pulled off some decent victories of late, but are prone to slipping up when least expected.
Against all expectations, Wales went all the way to the semi-finals in 2016. Gareth Bale found his form in the last few months of the season with Tottenham Hotspur and he will again be key to Welsh hopes.

Group B Winner:
Group B features Denmark, Finland, Belgium and Russia. The Danes play all their games in Copenhagen, with Russia playing two of their matches in Saint Petersburg.
However, it’s Belgium who are expected to top the group. This could be the last opportunity for what remains of the “Golden Generation” to claim a major trophy that their talent probably warranted.
Finland are the outsiders, but they are certainly capable of springing a surprise or two.
Group C Winner:
- Netherlands – 2/5 (bet365*)
- Ukraine – 5/1 (Betway)
- Austria – 6/1 (William Hill)
- North Macedonia – 33/1 (Betway)
The Netherlands haven’t been particularly impressive under Frank de Boer, but their draw could certainly have been tougher than what they were dealt in Group C. They also have the added advantage of playing all three of their group games in Amsterdam.
The other automatic spot in the knockout stage should be a straight shoot-out between Ukraine and Austria, although it would be foolish to dismiss the chances of a North Macedonia team that recently won away to Germany in a World Cup qualifier.
Group D Winner:
- England – 1/2 (Betway)
- Croatia – 15/4 (Spread Ex)
- Czech Republic – 12/1 (bet365*)
- Scotland – 16/1 (888sport)
England have been given a relatively favourable draw in Group D alongside Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland, particularly as they have the benefit of playing all their games at Wembley Stadium.
There is obviously some recent history with Croatia that Gareth Southgate’s men will want to rectify, while Scotland are not without hope given their improvement under Steve Clarke and having two matches at Hampden Park.
Croatia are in transition at present, but can still call on Luka Madric to orchestrate things. The Czechs have enough about them to believe that they can pick up sufficient points to reach the last 16.
Group E Winner:
- Spain – 4/11 (Spread Ex)
- Poland – 11/2 (888sport)
- Sweden – 6/1 (William Hill)
- Slovakia – 20/1 (Betfair)
With Spain playing all three of their group games in Seville, they are even stronger favourites to top Group E than they would have been anyway. The other group games will all be played in Saint Petersburg, with the final clash between Sweden and Poland being potentially decisive in deciding who secures second place behind the Spanish.
Slovakia are the group outsiders, but they’re unpredictable. They were recently held to a draw at home to Malta in a World Cup qualifier, but then defeated Russia a few days later. Unfortunately, Marek Hamsik isn’t the force of old.
Group F Winner:
- Germany – 6/4 (William Hill)
- France – 13/8 (Betfair)
- Portugal – 7/2 (bet365*)
- Hungary – 40/1 (William Hill)
Group F is the “Group of Death”, featuring as it does Hungary, Portugal, France and Germany.
Portugal are the defending champions and look stronger than they were at Euro 2016, France won the World Cup in 2018 and Germany were world champions four years prior to that. The chances of the winners of Euro 2020 coming from Group F have to be high.
Portugal have lost just twice in their last 28 matches in all competitions.
However, with three teams qualifying for the knockout stage from four of the six groups, all three of the heavyweight nations should progress if they can each beat Hungary.
Germany benefit from having all three of their matches in Munich, with the other group games all taking place in Budapest.
Euro 2020 Top Goalscorer Betting:
- Harry Kane – 6/1 (William Hill)
- Romelu Lukaku – 15/2 (Betway)
- Kylian Mbappe – 10/1 (Spread Ex)
- Cristiano Ronaldo – 14/1 (William Hill)
- Karim Benzema – 16/1 (bet365*)
- Memphis Depay – 18/1 (888sport)
- Ciro Immobile – 22/1 (William Hill)
- Antoine Griezmann – 25/1 (bet365*)
- Robert Lewandowski – 25/1 (Betfair)
- Timo Werner – 28/1 (William Hill)
The fact that France, Germany and Portugal have all been drawn together in the group stage doesn’t look likely to help any of their players hitting the goal trail.
Harry Kane has scored regularly for England in big tournaments previously and with the Three lions set to play the bulk of their matches in the tournament at Wembley, the want-away Tottenham striker looks to be the man to beat.
Two years ago today, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning hat trick against Switzerland to drag Portugal into the Nations League Final 🙌🇵🇹
