Best Sportsbooks for Betting on the UEFA Euros
Who Has Qualified?
Teams in Playoffs: Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Iceland, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Slovakia, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The teams are separated into six groups of four. Every team will play each other once. A win will be worth three points, a draw worth one and a loss results in zero points. The top two from each group automatically make it through to the next round. There are also four spots up fro grabs for the best placed third team.
All the teams that progress will then play in the round of 16 stage, where teams are knocked out if they lose. This continues until the final, where just the two best sides will remain and go head to head at Wembley. The final will take place on the 12th July.
|Group A||Group B||Group C||Group D||Group E||Group F|
|Switzerland||Russia||North Macedonia||Czech Republic||Slovakia||Germany|
Betting On a Euro 2020 winner
As is always the case with football competitions, there will be a vast number of betting options available to punters throughout the summer. These will range from ante-post bets to individual match bets. There will value in all of these markets since some of the groups will see high-quality fixtures. Here are some of the most lucrative betting options that will be available to punters.
No competition would be complete without an ante-post market for punters to lay their stake on the eventual winners. This market would have been open at the end of the final European Championships in 2016. The prices of teams will heighten and lower depending on how they have performed throughout the qualifiers. They would have also shifted when the draw was made for the competition itself.
The punter will win the returns should they have picked the right time to win the competition. However, there is also an each-way option as punters can place a bet like this and get some returns should the team that they have selected finish second. An each-way bet is simply double the stake that you intend to put on.

Another popular market among punters is the ability to pick the player that will score the most goals in the competition. This can be a lucrative option for punters as there are a host of high-calibre players involved. The bet is won should the player that has been selected end the competition with the golden boot.
There is also the possibility of combining this market with the tournament winner one. For instance, you could lay a stake on Germany to win the EURO’s and Harry Kane to finish top scorer. If both of those factors happen then the bet is won.
|Year||Golden Boot Winner|
|2012||Mario Mandzukic/ Mario Gomez/ Mario Balotelli/ Cristiano Ronaldo/ Alan Dzagoev/ Fernando Torres|
|2000||Savo Milosevic/ Patrick Kluivert|
Individual Match Bets
The most common way for punters to bet on specific games is the match result market. Here the punter would just lay their stake on the outcome of the match that they believe will happen. They will be able to pick either of the teams or the draw. It is important to remember for the knockout games that should it go into extra time, the result for this market would be a draw.
Both Teams To Score
Another good bet for punters, which doesn’t involve picking the correct outcome of the match, asks the question of whether both teams will score in the match. A punter will put their stake on either yes or no, and the bet is settled after 90 minutes. For instance, if a punter puts their stake on yes, and the game that they have betted on ends 2-1, then the bet will be a winner.
Punters can also bet on there being more or fewer goals, corner or cards in a match in the over/under market. Here, the bookmaker will set a benchmark and then the punter would put their stake on whether there will be higher or lower that amount in the game.
For instance, for a fixture between Italy and Turkey, there might be a benchmark of 2.5 goals. If the punter believes there will be three or more goals, then they would bet on over. If there are three goals scored in the match, then the bet will be a winner.
The first goal in international football is vitally important, and that makes this market extremely lucrative. Punters can bet on the player that they believe will score first in the match. If that player scores, then they will win the returns. This market can also be included with the correct score and wincast markets.
However, punters will have to get both aspects right in order to win the returns. It could be a lucrative avenue since these two markets both offer higher prices than most football markets.
This market isn’t used as much as other during the major competition since there isn’t as big of a gulf between the sides as there is in other competitions such as the Premier League. However, if you feel like one of the teams is going to win by a bigger margin, it is always a good idea to utilise it. The handicap market will see the favoured side start with a disadvantage that they will need to make up.
For example, Spain may start their fixture with Sweden with a -1.5 handicap. That means that they will need to win by at least two goals for the bet to be a winning one.
Method Of Victory
This market is popular when we reach the knockout stages of the competition. Punters will be able to lay their stake on the team that they believe will win, and how they will win should it go to extra time. For example, in a fixture between England and Germany in the round of 16, you could bet on England to win on penalties. If that happens, then you will receive the winnings.
