UEFA: Euro 2016 Outright Winner Odds and Betting Tips

Euro 2016 LogoDates: June 10th – July 10th 2016
Host Nation: France

THE 2016 UEFA European Championships are right around the corner. Taking place every four years, this is one of the most prestigious and anticipated competitions on the football calendar. Don’t forget, we also have the Summer Olympics this year too, so it’ll be a busy summer.

New format for Euro 2016

The Euros are going to be even more exciting. In recent Euros there have been sixteen teams, but for the first time ever, this year’s competition will feature 24 teams. The 24 qualified countries will be split into six groups of four. The top two teams in each group qualify, along with the four best third-place teams.

Where to bet on Euro 2016

There’s no better bookmaker to bet on Euro 2016 than the Bet365 Sportsbook (€200 Welcome Bonus). They have hundreds of betting markets for Euro 2016, including futures, props and more. Now if you live in America, you’ll need to bet at the Bovada Sportsbook ($200 Bonus).

Euro 2016: Group A preview

Teams: France (3/1), Switzerland (66/1), Romania (150/1) & Albania (350/1)

France couldn’t have been dealt a much better draw for the group stage. The Swiss are ranked 8th in Europe, while the French are ranked 14th in Europe, but being on home soil will be huge. France won Euro 84 and the 1998 World Cup as hosts and they have one of the best teams in the competition.

Hugo Lloris is a great goalkeeper and if the defenders can hold up, this team will go far. France have a strong core of midfielders and attackers with Paul Pogba, Karim Benzema, Frank Ribery, Dimitri Payet, Antoine Griezmann, Anthony Martial, Alexandre Lacazette, Blaise Matuidi and Yohan Cabaye.

Euro 2016: Group B preview

Teams: England (8/1), Wales (50/1), Russia (66/1) & Slovakia (150/1)

England lost to Italy in the quarterfinals at Euro 2012 and Roy Hodgson will want to improve upon that result in France. England will hope Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy can continue their great run of form in the EPL this season. The English will win Group B, but I don’t expect them to make much noise at Euro 2016.

Wales are ranked 17th and Russia are ranked 20th in Europe – they’ll likely contend for runner-up. I expect the Russians to finish second. I’ve liked how they’ve been since changing managers. Artem Dzyuba will be relied on to score goals and I expect Russia to feature one of the tightest defences.

Euro 2016: Group C preview

Teams: Germany (3/1), Poland (50/1), Ukraine (80/1) & Northern Ireland (250/1)

Germany will easily win Group C and they’re co-favourites to win Euro 2016. No one in this group will give the German squad a tough time. However, I’m not convinced Germany have enough class to win it all. They were eliminated in the semifinals at Euro 2012, but they recently won the 2014 World Cup.

Ukraine beat Sweden at Euro 2012 and many veterans are on this squad. I’m predicting Robert Lewandowski and the Polish team will finish runner-up in Group C, though. Lewandowski has 41 goals in 49 appearances this season and his class will power Poland into the Euro 2016 knockout stage.

Euro 2016: Group D preview

Teams: Spain (5/1), Croatia (28/1), Czech Republic (80/1) & Turkey (80/1)

I have Spain making it to the finals at Euro 2016 and they’ll win Group D. This team is aging and it’s likely the last chance this same group will play together. Diego Costa is in great form and can score goals in bunches. I believe the midfield will be weaker than expected, but Cesc Fabregas is still a stud.

Czech Republic are absolute grinders in these competitions. They won Group A at Euro 2012 against Russia, Greece and Poland. Croatia have more class with the likes of Mario Mandzukic, Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric in the starting line-up, but I have the Czech finishing runner-up and Croatia qualifying.

Euro 2016: Group E preview

Teams: Belgium (10/1), Italy (16/1), Sweden (80/1) & Ireland (100/1)

Regardless of what happens in Group E, none of these teams are contending for the title. Belgium are the top ranked team in Europe heading into the competition, but I don’t like their chances. The Belgians will have a star-studded line-up with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne.

I have Belgium winning the group, but that’s because no other team stands out. The Italians are a mess and despite the brilliance of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Swedes never make a deep run. I predict Sweden to finish as runner-ups and Italy won’t even qualify for the knockout stage at Euro 2016.

Euro 2016: Group F preview

Teams: Portugal (18/1), Austria (33/1), Iceland (66/1) & Hungary (200/1)

The lack of a star striker has hurt Portugal in these competitions, but I expect Cristiano Ronaldo to start upfront with Nani. Ronaldo is in stunning form, netting 47 goals in 44 appearances. Austria, Iceland and Hungary all lack experience in these huge events, so Portugal will have little problem qualifying.

I’m tipping Austria to finish runner-up and qualify for the quarterfinals. They lack any true superstars, but this isn’t a tough group. Iceland are going to continue growing and getting better in future years, but this is a young squad and I don’t expect too much out of them, although Gylfi Sigurdsson is a great midfielder.

Euro 2016 winner predictions

I have France and Spain in the finals. France are stacked across the board and they have a great record playing on home soil. France will likely need to beat Germany in the semifinals, which will be a great match to watch. Spain has a relatively easy path to the finals and this team has tons of experience.
