Euro 2020 odds: England shading favoritism after reaching final

Euro 2020 odds

England are narrow favorites in the latest Euro 2020 odds after needing extra time to scrape past Denmark 2-1 and take their place in Sunday's final at Wembley Stadium.

Italy are very marginal outsiders to lift the trophy having got past Spain on penalties an evening earlier and it will be fascinating to see how the winner market evolves as bettors make their opinions known.

Euro 2020 Winner Betting Favorites

England -120

It's fair to say that England currently have their best generation of players since the 2006 squad that reached the quarter finals of the World Cup, with the likes of Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Jadon Sancho all having enough about them to be classed as some of the best forwards in the world.

The group has already made history by qualifying for the nation's first final since they won the World Cup in 1966. Most sportsbooks make them narrow favorites to go and win England's first trophy since black-and-white TV era success.

It's not in doubt that the Three Lions have reached the decider through the easier side of the draw, with an ageing Germany side the highest pedigree opponents to have crossed their path.

Nonetheless they've conceded just once en route to the showpiece, which will be contested in front of their own partisan crowd and shown great attacking incisiveness on the flanks through Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka.

Most concerningly for Italy is that Harry Kane gradual improvement as the tournament progresses took a big leap against the Danes.

The striker was fortunate to net his goal off a penalty rebound, but the incisiveness of his passing when dropping deep was thrilling to watch and hinted that he will cause problems however the Azzurri attempt to stop him on Sunday.

Italy -110

Italy are currently on the longest unbeaten streak of any team competing in this year's Euro's, with the Azzurri having avoided defeat in all of their last 33 games dating back to September 2018.

No side has played with more consistent intensity in this tournament than Roberto Mancini's side, who have pressed and harried their opponents and attacked them with equal speed and incisiveness.

In beating Belgium they once again showed their offensive verve to go 2-0 up, but also exhibited the qualities more traditionally associated with an Italian side.

Against Spain we saw Italy being dominated for long periods for the first time in the tournament, yet a combination of defensive sturdiness and wayward Spanish finishing saw them reach penalties, from which they ultimately progressed.

They will effectively be playing away in the final, which takes place at England's Wembley Stadium, however they do have an extra day of preparation time after winning their semi on Tuesday.

Italy have had the better of their recent battles with England at major tournaments, beating the Three Lions 2-0 at the 2014 World Cup and knocking them out of Euro 2012 on penalties.

However, the sides' last two clashes both ended 1-1 and given what's at stake, it's highly likely we'll see another cagey affair on

Euro 2021 updated odds: Who will win it? England the betting favorite in final


Federico Chiesa - Italy

England is back as sportsbook favorite to win Euro 2021 after advancing to the championship final on Wednesday.

The English are slight favorites over Italy, who beat Spain in a semifinal penalty-kick shootout. England was reinstalled as Euro 2021 favorites after beating Denmark in its semifinal. The Three Lions will be the home team with the final played at Wembley Stadium in England. 

Five U.S.-based betting houses have England at -120 to -145 to win the final. England's odds were 2-to-1 before the quarterfinal and  greater than 6-to-1 at the start of the Round of 16.

England has never made the final of a Euros tournament, falling at the semifinal stage in 1968 and 1996. The latter event was hosted in England, where the song "Football's Coming Home" became a hit with fans optimistic that hosting the tournament could help the Three Lions to a long-awaited Euro victory.

Odds for Past UEFA European Championship Winners

Sports Betting Dime

France had the shortest opening odds on July 16th when betting first opened. Les Bleus won it all in 1984 and 2000, and finished second in 2016 after losing in heartbreaking fashion to Portugal 1-0 after extra time.

Euro 2021 futures odds, best bets: Experienced soccer insider reveals picks to win, teams to avoid

Outside of the FIFA World Cup, the UEFA European Championships are widely considered to be the next biggest soccer tournament in the world and after a year delay, the 2021 Euros will begin on Friday with Turkey taking on Italy at Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Over the ensuing month, the top 24 teams in Europe will battle in 11 different host cities across the continent for the right to call themselves champions of Europe. Portugal is the defending champions and 36-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo will be hoping to lead his country to become the second repeat winners ever after Spain won in 2008 and 2012.

Meanwhile, France is coming off a World Cup victory in 2018 and Kylian Mbappe will be looking to lead his club and country to another major trophy win at Euros 2021. Portugal is listed at 8-1 in the 2021 Euros odds from William Hill Sportsbook along with Germany and Spain, while France narrowly edges out England (5-1) and Belgium (6-1) as the 9-2 favorite. Before making any Euro 2021 futures picks or predictions, you need to see what SportsLine soccer insider Martin Green is saying.

After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated nearly $19,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season.

Now, Green has broken down Euro 2021 from every possible angle and revealed which teams you should back and which teams you should completely avoid. You can visit SportsLine now to see his picks. 

Top Euro 2021 predictions 

Green is avoiding Spain, even though the three-time European champions are among the Euro 2021 favorites at 8-1. After winning the 2008 Euros and the 2012 Euros, Spain was eliminated in the Round of 16 at the 2016 Euros. Add in a group stage exit at the 2014 World Cup and a Round of 16 defeat at the 2018 World Cup, and it's been an incredibly disappointing run for a historically dominant club on the world stage.

La Roja is currently sixth in the FIFA world rankings and even though their last international defeat came to Russia on penalty kicks in the 2018 World Cup, they've had a string of disappointing draws in big matches. They drew against Germany and Switzerland in the Nations League and drew against Greece in a pivotal World Cup Qualifying match that has opened the door for Sweden to overtake them at the top of the table in Group B.

"Captain Sergio Busquets tested positive for Covid-19 just five days before Euro 2020, plunging Spain's preparations into chaos," Green told SportsLine. "He was forced to go home and into quarantine, depriving the team of a key leader on the pitch. Spain has a great deal of talented midfielders, but Busquets is still an important player for the team."

How to make Euro 2021 picks 

Green has analyzed the Euro 2021 bracket from every angle and revealed which teams to back and fade, including a long shot who has a chance to shock the world and go all the way. He's only sharing his top picks here.

Who is Green backing to win Euro 2021? And which long shot can go all the way? Check out the odds below and then visit SportsLine now to see Martin Green's Euro 2021 futures bets and analysis, all from the soccer expert who has generated nearly $19,000 since the 2017-18 season.

We have published a number of Euro 2021 team guides and betting tips that provide an in-depth look at all the Euro championship teams and key players. Our betting guides take a look at the different types of football bets that can be placed on the Euros such as Euro winner outright bets, top goalscorer, handicap betting, and over/under bets. To help keep you up to date with the most recent odds, we have also provided odds news from our sister site

Representing your country on the international stage is special and something that many players aspire to. The biggest competition in Europe is the European Championships. Here at Euro2021bets we will do our best to provide everyone with the best platform to enjoy and get the best odds for Euro 2021 betting.

Euro 2021 Odds: Different types of bets

Tiki taka. Counterattacking. The long-ball game. There are many different styles of football and there are also different ways of betting. But no matter whatever type of betting you enjoy, Euro2021bets will cover every type of popular Euro 2021 bet and every type of European Championship market. If you want to check pre-match or in-play betting our Euro 2021 Odds offer everything you need. We will be offering dynamic live odds on all the matches and all the outright bets available.

For the 60th anniversary of the European Championships, EURO 2021 is a unique take on the competition with the event taking place across different European and Asian countries rather than just a single country. These countries are Azerbaijan, Denmark, England, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, the Republic of Ireland, Romania, Russia, Scotland and Spain.

Some countries will host group games only while other countries will be hosting the biggest matches of the competition. England’s Wembley Stadium will take centre stage, hosting seven matches including both semi-finals and the Euro 2021 Final on July 12th. We have a breakdown of all venues and which matches will be taking place in each one.

Twenty-four teams will take part in the Euro 2021 competition in six groups of four. The top two from each group will advance to the knockout stage, with the four best third-placed teams also going to the knockout stages. After the group stage the tournament moves to a knockout format. After the group stages comes the round of 16 and comes to a finale at the Euro 2021 Final in London.

Euro 2021 Odds: Which team will win?

During the previous tournament, Euro 2016, Cristiano Ronaldo was able to remove the only black mark on his career and won an international trophy. Portugal defied the odds and won Euro 2016. Portugal and Ronaldo are back this year doing their best to defend their title. It will be a challenge when you consider the strength in the competition this year.

Group F is the so-called group of death in this year’s competition, and it would not be a surprise if the potential winner of Euro 2021 is from this group. Portugal share the group with fellow Euro 2016 finalists and reigning world champions France, and a German side who are currently doing a squad refresh after their disappointing 2018 World Cup.

However, it is a well-known fact that home-field advantage gives teams a boost. For England, many of their matches will take place at Wembley and the backing of a home crowd will push the team. Consider that when England won the 1966 World Cup the competition took place on home soil.

They are not the only favourites with Spain, the Netherlands, Italy and Belgium all feeling like this could be their year. Whoever you think will come out on top at the European Championships this year, EuroBets2021 will cover all the odds on all matches with a vast selection of markets for you to enjoy. Whether you want to bet on Outright Winner, Match Winner, or something like Asian Handicaps, we will provide it.

England want to build on their fourth-placed finish in the 2018 World Cup in this summer’s European Championship. Three years ago in Russia, Gareth Southgate’s side were unlucky to lose to Croatia in the semi-finals. Now that the team has another three years’ experience under their belts, the team is confident that they can go all the way in this year’s tournament. England have a relatively young team that is hungry for recognition. As a potential major boost for England, five of the seven games, including the semi-final and final, will take place at Wembley.

The current World Cup champions France are joint-favourites and their squad depth and quality make them serious contenders. Their world-class players such as Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and N’golo Kante are world cup winners and know what it takes to win an international competition.

Belgium are also joint-favourites and are the number one rated team in the world according to FIFA rankings. They had a flawless qualification and got 30 points from 30. They also scored 40 goals and conceding just three. Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku are a fearsome attacking trio and a bane for defenders. This year they must finally fulfil their potential.

Germany are also one of the stronger teams in the competition, but they have been inconsistent over the past few years. Spain did not perform very well at the last World Cup and they went out in the round of 16. The Netherlands and Portugal (9/1) are underdogs to win the tournament, although both have done very well in previous iterations of this competition. Portugal are the defending champions and both teams have enough quality in their teams to perform well at Euro 2021. Italy are on an impressive 24-match unbeaten run and are the dark horse to go far in the European Championship.

A deep dive into EURO 2021 winner odds

Let’s take a look at the best bids for a EURO 2020 winner. We also assess the best EURO 2021 winner odds as well as the strongest candidates. At the time of writing France are the favourites to lift the trophy, which would see them follow up on their World Cup win 2018 in the best possible way.

Who will win EURO 2021?

If we were to go on statistics, the best bid for a final would be between Germany and Spain, as they have participated in 10 out of 15 finals (once, in 2008, against each other). But football, as most people know, is more than just statistics, and both countries have faltered a bit in recent years. Spain crashed out in the round of 16 at both the EUROs in 2016 and the World Cup in 2018, while Germany shocked the world by finishing last in their group at the World Cup in 2018 despite being one of the favourites to lift the trophy. Below you can see a top five of the biggest EURO 2021 winner favourites among the bookmakers.

EURO 2021 winner: France

As reigning world champions, France are of course big favourites to avenge the disappointing defeat in the final to Portugal five years ago and according to the bookmakers they could potentially call themselves EURO 2021 winners. The French national team can line up with star players in every single position, and most of the supporting players also have loads of talent and/or experience.

With names like Hugo Lloris in goal, Benjamin Pavard and Raphael Varane in defence, Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté in central midfield and aces like Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé in attack, the French can deliver an insanely star-studded line-up.

Add to that the fact that in Didier Deschamps they have a well-experienced coach, who will have been in the coaching seat for France for 9 years at the EUROs, and you have a very solid core.

France’s biggest potential stumbling block may very well prove to be complacency and/or lofty expectations.

EURO 2021 winner: England – first trophy since 1966?

When Gareth Southgate and The Three Lions reached the 2018 World Cup semi-finals, it marked the end of a two-decade desert trek for England, with one disappointment after the other. Before that, The Three Lions had not qualified for a semi-final in a major competition since 1996, where they were knocked out after a penalty shoot-out against Germany. At that time, the last penalty was missed by… Gareth Southgate!

Now things are looking brighter for England, whose offense finally seems to have quite a bit of firepower, which has been a rarity under previous coaches like Sven Göran Erikson and Fabio Capello, who excelled most in the defensive aspects of the game. The young offensive line with players like Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, Jadon Sancho and sharpshooter Harry Kane has on several occasions shown much more than the many different constellations of the previous two decades. The squad is somewhat thinner than many of the others in this top five, and a few injuries can potentially topple the house of cards. But at the time of writing, England is up there among the favourites.

EURO 2021 winner: Belgium

Like England, Belgium received a much-needed revival at the 2018 World Cup. Before that, they had for years had to listen is “this year is our year” for the small country the many star players. But time and time again, it ended in disappointment.

Not at the World Cup 2018 though, where Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and the rest of the star-studded line-up, among other things, knocked out Brazil before they had to lay down their arms against France in the semi-final. Belgium has many exciting young names in their squad. But they also have a few key players for whom this EUROs could be their last chance to win something (Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Dries Mertens).

EURO 2021 winner: Spain

Even before the tournament has started, the biggest problem for Spanish coach Luis Enrique seems to be finding a striker who can consistently score goals. This must be resolved if Spain is to end up as EURO 2021 winners.

Many Spaniards are baffled by the decision of Luis Enrique to not pick a single Real Madrid player for the squad and the omission of Sergio Ramos was a big surprise to many. This must have something to do with his many injuries as well as Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte using his dual citizenship to switch from France to Spain.

EURO 2021 winner: Germany

Joachim Löw survived the humiliation at the 2018 World Cup but players like Jerome Boateng did not. The Germans, who are in the process of a major generational change and who at the time of writing only have three players over 30 in the squad (Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels and Thomas Müller), have been through quite a lot of turmoil these last few years.

Fortunately, there is enough talent in the German ranks with young Kai Havertz as the last shooting star to unfold his potential. Like Spain, however, Germany also really lack the obvious goal scorer.

25-year-old Timo Werner looks like a possible bid for a German sharpshooter, but he has still not managed to score 30 goals in a season at club level, while Serge Gnabry with 8 goals in the European Championship qualifiers has proved to be Germany’s most dangerous player so far.

Previous EURO winners

It’s always a good idea to dive into a historical look at previous EURO winners. So, let’s start with an overview of that and see what we can deduct from it:

1996GermanyCzech Republic
1988NetherlandsSoviet Union
1980West GermanyBelgium
1976CzechoslovakiaWest Germany
1972West GermanySoviet Union
1964SpainSoviet Union
1960Soviet UnionYugoslavia


So, in total there has been ten different EURO winners the 15 times the tournament has been held. It differs a lot from the World Cup, where 21 finals have only given eight different winners. And who has won it the most times? Here it is a dead race between Germany and Spain.

Countries by number of EURO titles

4Soviet Union13
6Czech Republic11

Only three teams have won the EUROs more than once, and Germany has participated in six out of 15 finals. Although half have been lost, it is most certainly an impressive record. The Soviet Union has the dubious honour of having lost as many finals as the Germans, while the Netherlands have slipped up four times in the semi-finals and thus have that unflattering record.

The biggest (football)countries that have yet to win the EUROs are England and Belgium. The Belgians were closest with their final in 1980, while England’s semi-final defeat at home to Germany in 1996 is their best result along with their third place-finish in 1986. Incidentally, here is another deviation from the World Cup that is worth noting; six times a World Cup has been won by the host country. This has only happened three times at the EUROs, namely Spain in 1964, Italy in 1968 and most recently France in 1984.

How are the current EURO 2021 winner odds looking?

England will be making their first-ever appearance in the Final with a chance to win their first European championship.

Here are the opening lines for the Final round, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Opening odds, Final

England vs. Italy

England: +163 regulation time, -139 to win
Tie: +200
Italy: +205 regulation time, +112 to win

England are surprisingly the favorites heading into the Final match, as both Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane have been vital in carrying their team’s attack through the group and knockout stages. Kane leads the team with four goals while Sterling has three, while the only other two players to score throughout the campaign are Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson with one goal apiece.

Italy losing Leonardo Spinazzola to an Achilles rupture was a huge blow to their defense and has to be part of the reason why they’re not favored to win this one. Either way, it will be an exciting match between two solid teams who both have a great shot at walking away with the title.
