Euro 2021 Winner Odds
The Euro 2020/2021 winner market is prevalent and it is likely to attract most of the bets ahead of the big tournament.
As you might expect, leading teams such as England, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain and Italy will be competing and hoping to win the Euros.
England became the joint favourites with Belgium to win this summer's Euro 2020 championships as UEFA considered switching the tournament to one country. Anyway, it is now almost sure that all the original cities will host the matches as scheduled, so Belgium regained the role of #1 favourites.
Who’s gonna be the European Champion?
Are the Belgian Golden Generation (Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, etc...) now ready to win silverware?
Below are the biggest favourites for the competition including the best odds available on each of them.
Outright Winner OddsIf you are looking to take advantage of the bookmakers and place some value bets or back an underdog team and hedge your position at a later stage of the EURO 2020/2021, now is the great time to go and place your bets.

Euro 2020/2021 Top Goalscorer
Among the most popular outright market types is the “top goalscorer” choice. You have to predict which footballer will score the most goals during the tournament.
In this betting market, we always recommend you to back players that plays for a team that’s likely to last until the deeper rounds, since this will mean they’ll have more time to increase their goal tally.So, who’s gonna be the Top Scorer?
Harry Kane is a popular choice among punter, but Kylian Mbappè, Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo provide a stern competition. The Belgian will have Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne as assist men behind him and should be the smartest choice.

Euro 2020/2021 Groups
We have 24 teams and 6 groups. 16 teams will progress to the knockout stage.
Group A - Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Wales
After enduring an unbeaten qualifying campaign and winning their Nations League group, Italy are the obvious favourite. However, Turkey, Switzerland, and Wales are not to be taken for granted. Wales have already shown to be able to cause major upsets in major tournaments expecially if Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale are 100% fit.

Group B - Belgium, Denmark, Finland, RussiaBelgium are outright favourites and are expected to hammer their group rivals. Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku are expected to shine after a fantastic year with their clubs. Denmark and Russia will probably battle for the 2nd spot while Finland are more likely to struggle. If we assume Denmark vs. Russia will be the deciding match of the group stage, probably the Danes will have an edge because they’ll be playing on home turf.

Group C - Netherlands, Austria, Ukraine, North Macedonia
A very levelled group considering that the Netherlands are not the powerhouse they were a decade ago. Anyway, with Virgil van Dijk looking less and less likely to be fit in time for the summer as the days go by, don’t be surprised to see Netherlands odds shorten slightly. Austria and Ukraine can compete for the 1st place while the debutants North Macedonia shouldn’t be too much of an issue for both above-mentioned national teams.

Group D - England, Croatia, Czech Republic, Scotland
England and Croatia should easily fill the first and second places, with the Three Lions favourites over Luka Modric & Co. The Three Lions will also renew relations with fierce rivals Scotland, while the Czech Republic beat Gareth Southgate’s men as recently as October 2019. In our opinion, Czech Republic vs Scotland will decide which team will finish bottom.

Group E - Spain, Poland, Sweden, Slovakia
Spain are tipped to finish as group winner, even if they had some hiccups in the last two years. Plus, since their Euro 2012 triumph, Luis Enrique's men failed to progress beyond the round-of-16 in the two World Cups and one Euros they’ve competed in during that time. La Furia Roja will play all three group fixtures at home and this will surely represent a huge advantage. Robert Lewandowski and Zlatan ibrahimovic will try to drag Poland and Sweden respectively into knockout stage while Slovakia are outsiders.

Group F - Germany, France, Portugal, Hungary
Clearly, this is the group of death. Germany, France and Portugal will battle for the top 2 positions while Hungary have very few chance. Portugal will be defending the title that they won in 2016 when beating France in the final. Since then, they have also won the European Nations League and will be among the favourites to win the Euro 2020 (or Euro 2021) title. In our opinion, France have a bigger potential with Kylian Mbappè in his prime and more depth comparing to Die Mannschaft and the Seleçao.
