Euro 2020 will be a treat for fans and bettors alike. There's a whole month of football lined up, with the tournament kicking off on the 11th June, and there will be plenty of betting opportunities for you to get involved.
Just like in the last Euro, the format consists of a group stage of six groups where each group contains four teams. The top 2 teams from each group qualify automatically for the round of 16, and they'll be joined by the four best third-placed finishers. The final will be played on Sunday, 11 July, and you can expect a flurry of bets here!
Unlike previous tournaments, Euro 2020 will have games staged across the continent with London, Saint Petersburg, Munich and Rome among the host cities. In total there will be 11 cities staging 51 fixtures and, excitingly, plans are underway to allow some fans in to watch every match live. Considering the important role home field advantage has played in previous Euros, this is definitely a factor to consider when placing your bets in this year's tournament.
In this Euro 2020 betting guide, we will arm you with the key prerequisites for betting on the tournament and the most interesting odds. We include a preview of the outright markets, a closer look at England, Scotland and Wales, as well as information on where you can find our tipsters’ latest betting tips. In turn, we will go through the following:

England has always been strong when it comes to qualifying. Making Euro 2020 was a breeze, but they have often fluffed their lines on the biggest stage. Gareth Southgate's men have one of the most highly-vaunted attacks in Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford, and there is fierce competition in virtually every position.
The Three Lions will be desperate to prove their detractors wrong, and if they can get off to a strong start, they will be tough to break down. Harry Kane to be the top scorer at 8/1 looks to be a decent shout. Bettors will all be aware of Kane’s exploits in the Premier League, and he could fire England to Euro 2020 glory.
Casumo picks the most interesting England betting tips:
• England to beat Croatia in their first Euro 2020 group game at 3/4.
• The Three Lions are currently second favourites at 11/2 to win Euro 2020.
• Harry Kane to be the top scorer in the tournament at 8/1.
For Scotland, reaching major tournaments has been an uphill battle in recent years. Indeed, you have to go back to 1998 when they last qualified for an international tournament, which was the World Cup in France.
Steve Clarke made some bold calls when naming his 26-man squad for Euro 2020 with Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour and Rangers right-back Nathan Patterson among those selected.
We should have a clearer idea of how Scotland will do after their first match. In terms of betting tips, Scotland to qualify for the last 16 in the top two in Group D at 11/4 may tempt some bettors.
Casumo picks the most interesting Scotland betting tips:
• Scotland to win Euro 2020 at 300/1
• Scotland to qualify for the last 16 as Group D winners at 13/1
After an arduous 57 year wait to make a major tournament, Wales will attend their second Euro tournament in four years. At Euro 2016, Wales came into their own and played a fearless brand of football to reach the last four.
Wales are a swashbuckling side, and they usually line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Gareth Bale has been Wales' poster boy for a long time, and he will be well supported by Aaron Ramsey.
Although they are outsiders at 9/1 to win Group A, Wales will be champing at the bit to get stuck into Euro 2020, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise if they go deep in the tournament once again. Keep an eye on Bale to see how he performs, as he is usually a big-game player.
Casumo picks the most interesting Wales betting tips:
• Wales to win Euro 2020 at 100/1
• Wales to qualify for the last 16 of Euro 2020 as group winners at 9/1
England are priced as favourites and Southgate has plenty of pace in his squad. After a strong Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, the likes of Kane and Phil Foden will cause a lot of problems for opposing teams. Kane has had some ankle niggles, but hopefully he will be fit and firing. There is no obvious weakness in the squad, although concentration will be key against teams that like to press high, and Harry Maguire will have to be on guard. England are priced at 11/2 to win Euro 2020.
France, meanwhile, are the reigning World Cup champions and they are serious contenders to win a third European Championship. Les Bleus are through to their eighth European Championship in a row, and they have pedigree in this competition. In 2016, they lost in the final to Portugal. Despite being decimated by a raft of injuries, they qualified in a rather straightforward fashion for Euro 2020. One key to success for France this time round will be their defensive nous, although they do cause problems from set-pieces. France are 5/1 to win Euro 2020 and they have a knack for producing their best form in knock-out football.
Similarly, Belgium will be in the mix in terms of Euro 2020 Winner Odds. They, like France, are trading at 6/1 to lift the trophy. Deemed the ‘Golden Generation’, Belgium are blessed to have a squad shimmering from talent. With the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku at their disposal, they will be a threat going forward and they can cause some damage. Eden Hazard is still searching for his best form after a stop-start season with Real Madrid, which has been disrupted by injuries. Whether they can deliver on the international stage will be fascinating.
The odds favourites to win Euro 2021:
• England - 11/2
• Belgium - 6/1
• France - 5/1
• Germany - 9/1
• Netherlands - 11/1

Teams: Turkey, Italy, Wales, Switzerland
As far as Group A is concerned, Wales will want to go deep into the tournament. One of the other Group A representatives — Italy — have barely been talked about, but they will be looking to spring a surprise.
With Roberto Mancini at the helm, the Azzurri have seen their fortunes change. In qualifying for Euro 2020, Italy looked formidable as they won all their matches, scoring just under four goals per game, and conceding four. The team is built upon possession and speed, and they have adopted a 4-3-3 formation.
While they are at 1/2 to book their place in the last 16 as Group A winners, Italy is relatively unfancied to go all the way at Euro 2020. They will be eager to silence their detractors.
Meanwhile, Turkey, under the tutelage of Senol Gunes, have a manager who is accustomed to winning. While his European Championship credentials are unknown, he did steer the national side to third spot in the 2002 World Cup. Switzerland, who are the other Group A representatives, reached the last 16 at Euro 2016. Many fans will be familiar with Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, who is renowned for his tough tackling style.
Teams: Belgium, Russia, Denmark, Finland
Belgium — who are strong contenders to win Euro 2020 — should find Group B easy pickings. They are joined by Denmark, Finland and Russia. Martinez's men kick-started their campaign against Russia on June 12, 2021.
Belgium are currently trading at a very short 3/4 to book their place in the last 16 of Euro 2020 as group winners. Meanwhile, Denmark, who lifted the title in 1992, were absent from Euro 2016 as they failed to qualify. But in Christian Eriksen, they have a player who knows how to handle the big occasion.
Perhaps Group B’s USP is that it contains Finland, who are taking part in the European Championships for the first time in their history. Whereas with Russia, the player to watch will be Aleksandr Sobolev, who won his first cap and scored his first senior goal in a 2-1 friendly defeat to Sweden in October 2020.
Teams: Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia
The Netherlands stand out in this group. With the likes of Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt bursting onto the scene, the Netherlands are beginning to come of age, and they are of course previous winners of the European Championships, having triumphed in 1988.
Ukraine, under Andriy Shevechenko, will have his side well drilled, and in Andriy Yarmolenko, they have a player who knows the back of the net. They may face some competition to qualify for the last 16 from Austria, who will be looking to make more inroads into European Championships after failing to get out of the group stage in 2016.
Meanwhile, North Macedonia, who are taking part in their first European Championships, won’t be looking to purely make up the numbers. In the qualifiers, Eljif Elmas was their top scorer, with four goals to his name. Goran Pandev, at the grand old age of 37, will be looking to send some shockwaves through Group C.
Teams: England, Croatia, Czech Republic, Scotland
Group D is another intriguing group, as it contains two Home Nations teams — England and Scotland. The Auld Enemies will face off for their second group game clashes on Friday 18 June at Wembley. England are currently trading as 1.44 favourites to top Group D and reach the last 16.
Aside from the British flavour to this group, which is a USP, 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia will be looking to cause a stir. England naturally will want revenge for the World Cup semi-final defeat three years ago, while the Czech Republic can’t be ruled out. Although they were knocked out in the group stage at Euro 2016, they were crowned champions when they were known as Czechoslovakia in 1976.
Teams: Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia
Elsewhere, Group E, which contains Spain, Sweden, Poland and Slovakia, has all the ingredients to throw up some fascinating matches. Spain, as two-time European Champions, will be the ones to watch, as they seek to return to the pinnacle of European football.
Poland will also be a threat, and with Robert Lewandowski, they possess one of the most lethal strikers in world football. The Poles may have been knocked out in the quarter-finals by Portugal at Euro 2016, but they will be eager to make amends.
Sweden will be without Zlatan who has been ruled out through injury. While they will miss him, their squad is deep and strong and this should not be a catalyst to failure for the Swedes. Jordan Larsson, son of legend Henrik replaced him in the squad and he can be a real surprise package himself.
Although Slovakia are the weakest link, they did reach the last 16 of the European Championships in 2016, and they will pose problems for teams, especially when they can call upon Marek Hamsik.
Teams: France, Germany, Portugal, Hungary
In terms of Euro 2020 group stage odds tips, Group F, otherwise known as the 'Group of Death', throws up many fascinating plots and potential stories. France are currently trading as the favourites at 2.4 to qualify from Group F as winners, and Didier Deschamps has moulded his side into world beaters.
Meanwhile, Portugal are currently surprisingly the third favourites 5/2 to qualify as group winners, but having previously won the competition five years ago, they should garner some betting interest.
Germany are in the midst of a rebuild under Joachim Low, although Toni Kroos was one of the survivors of the disastrous 2018 World Cup campaign, along with Manuel Neuer. Once they get their fluent passing game together, they can attack swiftly and break down teams.
Similarly, Hungary are managed by a former Italy international - Marco Rossi. Hungary reached two of the first four semi-finals of the European Championships, and while they reached the last 16 at Euro 2016, they will be wanting to come out of the wilderness.
Don’t miss out on what our tipsters’ have to say about each group. You can find up to date betting tips for each group on the link below.
One of the most interesting markets to keep an eye on will be the Euro 2020 top scorer odds and we couldn’t discuss potential top scorers at Euro 2020 without discussing Harry Kane. He is one of the most potent strikers in the game, and at Tottenham this term, he adopted a much deeper role. He has managed to add assists to his game, and he has developed a lethal partnership with Heung Son-Min. If Kane is fit and firing, England have a strong chance. Kane, unsurprisingly, heads the market for Euro 2020 top scorer, and he is currently priced at 8/1.
Sliding in just behind Kane at 10/1 in the Euro 2020 top scorer market is Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian enjoyed a fabulous campaign with Inter Milan and aside from having a quick turn of pace, he can shrug defenders off the ball, and he will bring his teammates into play.
Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappé is one of Europe's hottest properties and he has already blazed a trail with Paris Saint-Germain. The 22 year old boasts an electric pace and he rarely passes up an opportunity in front of a goal. Mbappé is currently joint-second in the Euro 2020 top scorer market at 10/1.
On the more local front, Bale currently appears to be a distinct outsider at 60/1 in the Euro 2020 top scorer market. Bale’s left foot is like a wand, and he always likes to cut inside and pull the trigger when given half an opportunity. If he can switch through the gears, it will take something special to stop him.
Euro 2020 top goalscorer odds
• Harry Kane - 8/1
• Romelu Lukaku - 10/1
• Kylian Mbappe - 10/1
• Gareth Bale - 60/1

Euro 2020 will provide a feast of football for a month, and there will be an array of spectacular players on the show. Here are a few players you should keep an eye on.
Mbappe came to life in the Champions League for Paris Saint-Germain and this season, he netted a hat-trick at the Nou Camp as PSG thrashed Barcelona in the first leg of their last-16 tie. The 22-year-old has blazed a trail at Ligue 1 and he has already lit up the world stage too. He lifted the World Cup with France in 2018, after he scored with a stunning strike against Croatia in the Final. Mbappé is, at the time of writing, the 5/1 favourite to be the Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament, and when in full flow, he’s irresistible.
Moving onto the second favourite in this market, Kevin De Bruyne will hope to light things up on the pitch for Belgium. As a midfielder, he has excellent passing range and vision, and he is a slippery customer. Having lifted the Premier League title once again for City, he will be looking to supply some assists, and chip in with a goal or two himself. He’s currently valued at 8/1 in this market.
Kane will also be in the mix for Player of the Tournament. At the 2018 World Cup, Kane was the top scorer, with six goals to his name. Now, Kane has added more to his locker with his hold-up play and ability to connect with his teammates. His partnership with Son, as mentioned before, has been near telepathic. If he can link up well with the likes of Phil Foden, Kane could have a big Euro 2020, and he is currently 12/1 to do so.
Meanwhile, from a Welsh perspective, Ramsey is listed in the Player of the Tournament market. Renowned for playing shorter passes, Ramsey is good at picking up pockets of space in midfield, and he can help orchestrate attacks. At the time of writing, he is 500/1 to be named Player of the Tournament.
Also trading at a long shot 500/1 is Scotland’s Andy Robertson. The left-back is one of those bucaneering players who loves to charge forward, and he is an excellent crosser of the ball. If Scotland make progress in the tournament, then Robertson should be one for bettors to pay attention to.
Player of the tournament odds
• Kylian Mbappe - 5/1
• Kevin de Bruyne - 8/1
• Harry Kane - 12/1
• Aaron Ramsey - 500/1
• Andy Robertson - 500/1
