Current Euro 2020 / 2021 betting odds favour France to get the title at 5.50 with Bet365.
The 2020 / 2021 European Football Championship is the 16th European Championship. It is taking place between the 11th of June to the 11th of July 2021 across 12 different cities.
It is interesting to observe what impact playing the competition in so many different places has on the tournament. For some teams it is sure to an advantage as they play all of their group matches in their own country but for others it is not so easy as they are forced to travel larger distances than ever before.
Read on to find our Euro 2020 / 2021 betting tips. And if you want to find out why picking a Euro 2020 / 2021 top goalscorer is not going to be easy, we recommend our article about the best footballers in the tournament.
1. Euro 2020 / 2021 Betting Odds
The final of the previous European Championship was contested between France and Portugal in Paris. The French went into the final as the favourites, especially considering they were playing at home but perhaps the pressure was too much and they lost the final thanks to a goal in extra-time. The Portuguese were not strongly fancied throughout the group stages as potential winners of the tournament but came through to lift the trophy.

Qualification for the 2020 / 2021 European Football Championship did not start well for Portugal and they eventually finished second to group winners Ukraine. This resulted in Portugal being placed in the third pot despite being the defending champions and there was a good chance they were going to be drawn in a tough group. Their worst fears were realised as a Portugal were grouped with Germany and France plus the winner of Playoff A or D.
Considering the nature of their draw plus their below par performance during qualifying, perhaps we should not be surprised to see the odds to win Euro 2020 / 2021 being against Portugal who are out at 9.00 with Bet365 to retain their title.
Only one nation has successfully defended the European championship and that was Spain in 2012. However, the Euro 2020 / 2021 betting does not give Portugal much of a chance of becoming the second nation to win the trophy back-to-back.

Next in our Euro 2020 / 2021 predictions we take a look at the nation which has an opportunity to play the most matches at their home stadium. England will play all three of their group games at Wembley Stadium and also have the possibility of playing the semi-final and final at their own stadium, which is a massive advantage. It was confirmed during the match with Croatia, which was won by the hosts 3-0.
There were moments where the tempo dropped because of the heat but the majority of the game we were in control and didn't give Croatia many opportunities and we looked dangerous. Kalvin Phillips is a player who is so understated (...) I thought he was immense throughout the game - as they all were - and I'm so pleased for Raheem. We are going to need all those attacking players through the tournament. We can make changes and we will need to.
England really need to take advantage of the opportunity of playing at home as they have a mostly poor record at the European Championship. Who can forget the round of 16 at the 2016 European Championship when England were eliminated by Iceland? It was one of the biggest upsets in major international tournament history and England will be keen to avoid any further embarrassment by progressing from the group and making the latter stages of the tournament.
There is no doubt England have plenty of quality in their squad, especially in the attacking third but question marks do remain regarding their defence. If England are to win their group, they are likely to play one of France, Germany or Portugal in the round of 16 which will be a huge test. Actually, the toughest one, since according to Euro 2020 winner odds, France is even more likely to win the tournament than England, being the favourite at 5.50. Les Bleus are the reigning world champions. With the finest players in their squad, such as Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappé, they surely pose a great threat to England.
Moving on with our host nation Euro 2020 / 2021 betting winner odds and we come to the Netherlands. They have already won their first group-stage match with Ukraine. The other two teams in their group are Austria and North Macedonia. This is a relatively favourable draw, especially if you compare it to the group containing France, Germany and Portugal. The Netherlands squad includes some high quality players such as Virgil van Dijk, Matthijs de Ligt, Georginio Wijnaldum and Frenkie de Jong. They are likely to reach the knockout stages of the competition and will be a threat any team they face in a single knockout match.
The Netherlands odds to win Euro 2020 / 2021 are currently set at 13.00 with Bet365.
A potential Euro 2020 / 2021 betting winner who join both England and Netherlands in playing all their group matches at home is Spain. You must only go back to 2012 to find the last time the Spanish won the European Championship and the current squad of players is sure to be capable of progressing out of the group stage into the round of 16. Spain qualified for the tournament by finishing top of a group which contained Sweden and Romania as their two closest challengers and cannot be underestimated. Their first match on the group stage, with Sweden, ended with a draw (0-0). Two other teams that they are going to face are Poland and Slovakia.
Spain may not have the same calibre of player throughout their starting 11 as they did in 2008 and 2012 but there's still enough talent in there to beat any team on their day. The Euro 2020 / 2021 odds have Spain available at 9.50 to win the tournament.
Germany and Italy are two other major nations who will be playing all of their group games on home soil. The Italians breezed through their qualifying group, winning all 10 of their matches. They already won the opening match of Euro 2020 with Turkey (3-0). The two teams which are left in their group are Wales and Switzerland. Italy will play all 3 teams at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. However, they are unlikely to be one of the teams contesting the quarter-final at the same venue unless they finish third in the group. The Euro 2020 / 2021 betting odds have Italy on offer at 8.00 with Bet365 to win the competition.
Finally, we come to Germany who will be contesting all their group games at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Germany lost only one of their 8 qualifying matches with that defeat coming against Netherlands. However, they are in the so called ‘group of death’ with Portugal and France and this will only make things more difficult for the Germans.
Group F is undoubtedly the most difficult to call at the 2020 / 2021 European Championship but Germany do have the advantage off playing Portugal, France and the Playoff winner at home. That surely hands them the advantage and even if Germany happened to finish as one of the best third placed teams, they have the potential of playing a quarter-final at home.

While many people will be fearful of including any team from Group F in their Euro 2020 / 2021 betting predictions, it is difficult to ignore the Germans who are available at 9.00 with Bet365 to lift the trophy.
