Euro Championship Betting Odds 2020 (2021)

Euro 2020 (2021) Betting Markets

  • Tournament Outright: The most popular way to bet on Euro 2020 (2021). Outright markets give punters a chance to bet on the outcome of the entire tournament, from the teams predicted to make it through the group stages, to the eventual Winner. These markets are offered by all betting sites covering the event and are best accessed in the run-up to the tournament.
  • Player Outright: If you have your eye on a particular player, this is the market for you. Many Euro 2020 (2021) betting tips are centered around these markets, predicting everything from the Top Goalscorer to the Most Yellow Cards and the Best Goalkeeper.
  • Prop Bets: The biggest Euro 2020 (2021) betting odds can typically be found on proposition bets, where you can wager on a range of outcomes, such as a record number of red/yellow cards or a first-time champion.
  • Totals: Will Euro 2020 (2021) be a high-scoring affair, will there be a lot of penalties? Wager on these outcomes and more with Over/Under Total bets. The betting sites set the benchmark and you decide whether you think there will be more or less.
  • Match Bets: Euro 2020 (2021) betting also covers individual matches, with extensive selections offered for each. Players can wager on Goals, Scores, Totals, and Scoreline bets, whereby a bet for the First/Final Goalscorer is combined with one for the Final Score.

Euro 2020 (2021) Prop Betting

Prop betting markets are one of the best and most unique ways to bet on this event and can include:

  • A Goal in Every Game: It can be found on multiple betting sites, often with huge odds. In 2016, this bet would have failed miserably as there were 4 goalless games. However, during the 2018 World Cup, where this prop bet was also offered, there was a single 0-0 in the entire tournament.
  • A Record Number of Penalties: With VAR becoming increasingly common, this bet will entice a lot of punters. The question is, will the implementation of this technology lead to more penalties than any other European Championship? Similar bets include “Most Penalties Scored” and in both cases, the market excludes Penalty Shootouts.
  • Winner from Group: Will the winner emerge from the so-called Group of Death, will they have it easy and breeze through, or will a dark horse steal glory? With this prop bet, you decide, placing your money on the group that contains the eventual winner.
  • The Finalists: If you’re preparing to bet on Euro 2020 (2021), there’s a good chance you’ll have your schedule in front of you and will have memorized the groups and the order of progression. That begs one question: Who will the two finalists be? The nature of the schedule means that choosing the finalists is as simple as predicting which teams will dominate each side of the draw, before eventually facing-off.
  • Player of the Tournament: Finally, we couldn’t discuss Euro 2020 (2021) betting options without talking about the Best Player market. This award is handed to the star of the show, a breakthrough player who makes their presence known and goes on to do great things or a superstar who is at the peak of their powers. Previous winners include Xavi, Iniesta, Griezmann, and Zidane—who’s next?
  • Seeing Red: Many prop bets revolve around cautions and red cards, predicting whether tournament records will be broken, or specific outcomes will occur. These include Fastest Sending Off (a record currently held by Eric Abidal), Multiple Red Cards Per Game, and Most Cautioned Team.

Euro 2020 (2021) Betting Outrights

The best Euro 2020(2021) betting odds can often be found on the outright markets, especially if you’re betting on an outsider. These markets span the entire tournament and include options such as Tournament Winner, Golden Boot, Golden Glove, and Player of the Tournament.

The more you venture away from the favourite, the higher the odds become, quickly surpassing 100.00. Generally speaking, the favourites tend to win these markets. The last three Player of the Tournament awards have been won by world-class, highly-regarded names playing for major nations; the last 6 Golden Boots have been claimed by well-regarded and super-prolific strikers.

However, there are plenty of surprises in this tournament and there could be some value in certain Euro 2020 (2021) betting odds. The 2016 tournament is a great example of this. France, Germany, and Spain were the three biggest favourites, with others looking to the likes of England, Belgium, and Croatia. Most wrote Portugal off, especially after they struggled in the Group Stage and made it through by the skin of their teeth, finishing behind both Hungary and Iceland.

However, Portugal eventually got it together and began a run that saw them topple Croatia, Poland, and Wales, before beating France in the final. They were one of the outsiders in the Euro 2020 (2021) betting markets, but they triumphed and made many Portuguese punters very happy.
