UEFA EURO 2020 rescheduled tournament gets underway in 2021 in Rome on June 11 and runs through to Sunday July 11. UEFA EURO 2020 was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Twenty-four teams will be playing across 51 matches in 12 cities, starting on Friday June 11 2021. It all ends at Wembley Stadium with the final, which takes place on Sunday July 11.
Rather than have one or two host nations, Euro 2020 / 2021 will take place across 12 different countries and cities. Therefore, some countries will be playing all of their group games at their home venue and this could extend to the latter stages of the tournament.
Given that the tournament is still a few months away, the odds shown above will most likely change in the run up to the event.
England, France and Belgium are the top three favorites to win the final tournament of the 2021 European Football Championship. The Netherlands, Spain and Germany have lower chances. The trophy holder, Portugal, who is in the group with Germany and France, has the odds of 15.00 to be European champion again.
Undoubtedly the most balanced group in Euro 2021 is group F, a group that includes France, Germany and Portugal. This is somewhat reflected in the odds, although the European title champion has a very tempting odds of 7.00 to win the group. At the opposite pole are groups D and E who have definite favorites (England and Spain). Even in groups A and C there is a team that starts detached with the first chance – Italy and the Netherlands.
Most common bets for Euro Championships 2020 / 2021 predictions are:
- To qualify – The Euro Championships always start out in the group stage, which is why you can find ‘to qualify’ markets in the first place.
- Top 4 finish – For your chosen team to bring you any money in this one, they must reach at least the semi-finals.
- Golden boot – The Euro 2021 top goalscorer betting odds features players including England’s Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard, France’s Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann.
- Outright winner – The outright winner markets are always a solid choice, and you don’t always need to pick the favourites
Here are some of the betting types to watch out for in your euro 2020 football predictions.
- Match winner – This is the most simple and obvious. There are three options here, Team A-Draw-Team B. Take your pick and get your cash down.
- Both teams to score – Will both teams find the net in 90 minutes? It’s a simple yes or no answer. Can be used as part of accumulators or as a super single.
- First goalscorer – Name the player to score the first goal. A tricky bet to get right but the odds are often very generous. Own goals don’t count. Keep the thing in mind when making your euro 2020 football predictions.
- Total goals – Will the game produce more or less than 2.5 goals? A goal-fest or a nervy encounter. Another one that rates as a straight choice.
There are several ways in which you can boost your chances of placing successful bets on Euro 2020 /2021. Research is the key word here, you can’t just place a bet on a game without having done some. That applies whether it’s a top match or a youth game, the more you know, the better armed you are.
Here are five areas that you can look at.
- Check out the latest form – Back teams that are in form and having a good preparation for the finals. Look at their top players, are they doing well and making major contributions to their team? Look at the line-ups though as sides will be making plenty of changes in their warm-up games.
- Make sure you know the team news – An important stage in the lead up to this tournament is when the participants name their squads. Pay close attention to this to see which players have been included and if there are any major absentees that could affect their chances of doing well.
- Follow the countries that do well in major finals – Some countries regularly qualify for major finals but rarely make it to the latter stages of the tournament. Others such as France, Germany, Spain and Portugal are consistently strong in major finals and seem to peak just at the right time.
