In the midst of international matches, focus today on the favourites for the upcoming Euro 2020. Which nations do the bookmakers think are the ones to watch?
Who will win Euro 2020 this summer?
In the midst of the 2022 World Cup qualifying week in Qatar, the question is worth asking as the summer deadline draws closer for the various European players.
Postponed for a year due to the health crisis, the competition will take place from 11 June to 11 July 2021, for a month of crazy intensity. All sports betting fans are already on the alert.
Three years after the magnificent World Cup won by Les Bleus, they have the opportunity to achieve a double, as they already did in 1998/2000. But it will not be an easy task, as the competition is very tough, and France is not the favourite among bookmakers.
Today we take a close look at the most anticipated national teams of the online betting sites. Great odds to try!
England, the first favourite for Euro 2020
England are often exceptional in the qualifying phase but disappointing in the major competitions. This year, however, at Euro 2020, things could be different.
The Three Lions have a top quality squad with established players such as Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Jordan Henderson, and they have the ability to make any European defence look good at the tournament, which starts on 11 June.
Add to that a number of youngsters who are having a magnificent season this year, such as Man City prodigy Phil Foden, James Madonna, and a number of other youngsters. City’s Phil Foden, James Maddison, Reece James, Mason Mount and Calvert-Lewin, and you have one of the most talented squads in the tournament, with the final to be played at…Wembley.
With an average price of 6.00 at the bookmakers, England’s victory is logically the number one choice for football specialists. Betting a few euros on Southgate’s men will clearly not be a bad strategy.
For this edition of Euro 2020, Belgium just behind according to the boolmarkers
The Red Devils are also among the favourites to win this competition. With a great team and a coach who almost never loses, Belgium can claim the final victory at Euro 2020. This is probably the golden age of this nation, with the best players they have ever had, and not to win anything could be disappointing.
With the likes of Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, Dries Mertens, Youri Tielemans and Thibaut Courtois, the starting 11 is clearly scary. The only black spots are the injury to Axel Witsel, who is almost officially out for the Euro, and the total lack of form of Eden Hazard since his arrival at Real Madrid.
If Belgium are slightly less favourite than England for the bookmakers, the reason is probably the defence with less renowned players, and the less important depth of the bench than across the Channel. For the odds, we are on average 7.00. So we can expect nice winnings once again.
France closes the podium
With Belgium and England, the French team obviously completes the podium of favourites according to the bookmakers. Why of course? Because France is still the world champion and has qualified for this summer’s tournament without too much effort.
The squad has not changed much since the 2018 title, and Didier Deschamps can count on players who play in the biggest European clubs like Mbappé, Griezmann, Varane, Kanté, Pogba, Hernandez, etc.
With an equally impressive pool of players, the positions are qualitatively doubled in almost every position. Les Bleus can also mix experience and youth, and have been solid lately.
What to bet on the favourite team: England, Belgium and France? The odds, averaging 7.00, are there to convince you to place a bet. We can’t wait!
