Euro 2016 Betting

Spain were dumped out of the World Cup at the group stage two years ago, although La Roja remain a major force in European football. Despite what happened in Brazil two years ago, the bottom line is that Spain head to France this summer bidding to win a third successive European Championship.

While much of the personnel that landed Euro 2008 has changed, Vicente Del Bosque still has Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos operating in central defence, while Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta are part of a strong midfield unit.

Del Bosque’s team never recovered from that 5-1 mauling at the hands of the Netherlands at the 2014 World Cup, although it tells a similar story.

Namely that Spain do start these major tournaments slowly, having drawn 1-1 with Italy at Euro 2012 and they also lost to Switzerland in the 2010 World Cup opener before triumphing.

La Roja begin their 2016 European Championship campaign with a clash against Czech Republic, with Del Bosque hoping to restore confidence levels following that ill-fated trip to South America.

On paper, Spain remain one of the strongest European teams and the draw has been relatively kind to them. Turkey and Czech Republic are very much second-string European nations, even if Croatia are capable of causing a stir in Group D.

Qualifying was a walk in the park for the Spanish as they claimed nine wins from ten, with Manchester United keeper David de Gea ready to stake his claim between the sticks at the expense of the highly-experienced Iker Casillas.

However, there are issues when it comes to having a quality centre forward who slots into Spain’s style of play. In truth, they have never found a replacement for the mercurial David Villa who was a hotshot at Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup.

Diego Costa will be part of the Spanish squad although the Chelsea striker has never really flourished in the centre forward role for the men in red, with Del Bosque considering the possibility of fielding Cesc Fabregas or Pedro in that false number nine role instead.

Striking issues aside, the squad is strong and every player operates for a high-profile European club, with Del Bosque having steered Spain to two major tournament successes already.

Indeed, few expected the former Real Madrid coach to be at the helm eight years after replacing Luis Aragones, with the 65-year-old having won two Champions League titles with Los Merengues during a highly successful second spell at the Bernabeu.

These knockout competitions often come down to the fine margins and the manager will hope that his players’ collective big-game experience from previous tournaments for both club and country will be enough to get them over the line here.

However, football is a cyclical business and perhaps Spain have had their turn and it’s time for the national team to start looking to the future. A rebuilding process of sorts has to start taking place as a new crop of players emerge to represent Spain at future tournaments.

Italy v Spain Betting Preview

A good test ahead of Euro 2016 for both of these. Four years ago of course, these two were squaring off in the final of Euro 2012, with Spain running out comfortable 4-0 winners in one of their majestic performances. Spain have a pretty solid stretch of form running over the Italians and this will be a great clash between the two of them who each put in solid qualification campaigns for this summer’s European Championships.

Italy v Spain Betting Tips

It was fairly routine for Italy during Euro 2016 qualification, going unbeaten in their ten matches, winning seven of them. So they aren’t in bad form because of all of that but there have been a couple of slips in recent performances though since the close of Euro 2016 qualifying. Italy went to Belgium last November and lost heavily by a 3-1 scoreline and they could only follow that up with a home 2-2 tie against Romania. Of course it is always hard to get a genuine read of anything from results in international friendlies but with a tough Euro 2016 group in taking on Sweden and Ireland, they may need to up their game again.

Italy will go on to play Germany a few days later in a friendly, so they are pushing themselves. The goals which have been flying in against them has to be a little bit of a concern. They have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four games played and just two in the last seven. That’s not really what you would expect from Italy. They have gone W4 D1 L2 over their last seven games and up in the anytime goalscorer market for them is Ciro Immobile and Graziano Pelle at 12/5 options. The last time these two played was a friendly in March of 2014, Spain taking a 1-0 win in the match through Chelsea’s Pedro.

Spain have lost just one of the last ten against Italy (competitive and friendly) so have good form there. They have also kept a clean sheet in each of the last three meetings with the Italians and a Spain 1-0 correct score in this one is trading at a price of 11/2 with online betting site Bet365. Italy have failed to score in five of the last seven played against Spain. Like Italy, Spain were relatively untroubled in their Euro 2016 campaign and they are on a five match winning streak. Their most recent success was a 2-0 victory over England back in November of last year. Spain have not conceded a goal in any of their last five international matches and therefore this game is likely to go under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/7. Paco Alcacer, Aritz Aduriz and ALvaro Morata are all 2/1 anytime goalscorer options for Spain.

Italy v Spain Betting Odds

Spain 6/4, Italy 15/8, Draw 21/10

Italy v Spain Predictions

This is likely to be another low scoring affair between the two of them, with only two of the last nine meetings between them going over the 2.5 goal line. Spain have looked pretty solid at the back and while they still look as if they are crying out for a world class goalscorer, the Italian defence has been giving up enough goals lately to suggest that Spain can nick this one.

Euro 2016 Betting

The draw for the Euro 2016 group stage was made on Saturday, December 12th and now nations can start preparing properly as they know who they will be facing, when they will be facing them and where they will be facing their group opponents.

Euro 2016 is hosted by France and will be played across ten different locations from Lille and Lens in the north through to the exotic play grounds of Nice and Marseille on the Mediterranean coast in the south. The final itself, what will be the 51st match of the competition, will be played at the Stade de France, Saint Denis and that is where the action all starts as well, when host nation France take on Romania in the tournament opener on June 10th.

There are six groups of four teams as the tournament has expanded into twenty-four competitors for the first time ever. That means of course that there is an extra game needing to be won on the path to success for whoever is crowned European champions at the end of the campaign. The top two from each Euro 2016 group will move through to the group stage automatically, while the four best third-placed teams will make their way through to the round of sixteen.

So there’s a pretty good chance of getting through of course with only eight nations dropping out after the group stage.

Euro 2016 Group Draw 2016

Euro 2016 Group A

France, Romania, Albania and Switzerland

It wasn’t a bad draw for the hosts France at all here. It will be a shocker if they didn’t get out of this one. The French are 1/2 favourites to move out of their group as winners and it should be a race for second place behind them. Switzerland are arguably their biggest threat in the Group A and frankly how easily England handled them in the qualifiers, even that shouldn’t be too much for them to handle. Albania, who are at their first major finals are 28/1 outside shots to shock everyone and win the group. Romania aren’t likely to offer a lot of opposition and it should be between them and Albania for third.

Euro 2016 Group B

England, Russia, Wales, Slovakia

England went as the top seeds in Group B and then pulled out Wales as the second team in their group to face. Russia and Slovakia fill in the holes. Wales weren’t keen on drawing England, at least boss Chris Coleman wasn’t because of the distractions over the Battle of Britain which it will be labelled as. That will be the second game in the group for both. Russia are a tricky side to handle and are the clear dark horses in the group, even though they finished a long way behind Austria in qualifying. But gutsy points against Sweden in qualifying helped them through, they should join England in the next round. Wales may have to grab a point against one of them on top of a win over Slovakia to edge through. England are 5/4 to top the group with Russia at 4/1, while Wales are even money to qualify.

Euro 2016 Group C

Germany, Ukraine, Poland, Northern Ireland

Germany head up the seeds in Group C and they get a mouthwatering clash against Poland. The two were together in qualifying for the finals and the Poles managed to earn a win against die Mannschaft. Because of the goals of Robert Lewandowski, the Poles will carry a threat and should qualify easily from the group. The Ukraine aren’t a bad side, in a bit of a transition though and are likely to earn third spot ahead of Northern Ireland. The Irish didn’t get a great draw here at all in the finals after all their hard worth through qualifying. Tough, draw and they are a the group outsiders with Germany at 6/11 to win the group.

Euro 2016 Group D

Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey, Croatia

This is one of those major tournament groups which on paper looks as if it will be a bit of a straight forward dull affair with double reigning champions Spain cruising to top spot. They are 6/5 to do so, but there are some tricky challenges coming in from Croatia, who are a technically gifted side and the Czech Republic who topped their qualification group over the likes of Holland and Turkey. The Czech’s will get reunited with Turkey in the group but they aren’t a defensively sound unit so that will put their qualification hopes at risk. The Spaniards should qualify easily enough but there could be an entertaining battle for positions in the group nonetheless because of defensive weakness amongst the other nations. It could be one of the more intense, tightly contested groups.

Euro 2016 Group E

Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Sweden

The Republic of Ireland probably won’t be too disappointed with their draw. They are trading at 23/10 to qualify. On the surface of things, getting drawn in a group alongside Italy and Sweden would seem a pretty tough thing, but there’s not much for the Irish to be afraid of here. Yes, the game against Belgium is going to be their toughest and the Red Devils are likely to deliver on their 13/10 favouritism to top the group, but the Italy aren’t a big threat and can be picked off and if you keep Zlatan Ibrahimovic quiet then you always have a chance against the Swedes. Really right group in this one with Italy at 2/5 and Sweden at 6/4 to qualify.

Euro 2016 Group F

Portugal, Iceland, Austria, Hungary

Portugal are top seeds in Euro 2016 Group F and they are 6/5 to finish as winners. They had such an easy group in qualifying though and made hard work of it that it may be worth looking towards Austria to pull off a group win at 11/4. The Austrians were the surprise package of qualifying, their positive play landing them top place in their qualifying group over Russia and Sweden. They should join Portugal in the next round leaving a scrap between Iceland and Hungary for the spoils of third. Not much to choose between them, but Iceland turned in some impressive performances in their tough qualification group. You can see a lot drawn matches being played out in this group.

Euro 2016 Outright Winner Odds

Germany are running as 10/3 outright favourites for Euro 2016 with host nation France at 11/4 behind them. Reigning European Champions Spain are 9/2 and that makes up the numbers for nations currently priced under double figure in Euro 2016 outright betting.

Germany 10/3, France 11/4, Spain 9/2, England 10/1, Belgium 12/1, Portugal 16/1, Italy 20/1, Croatia 25/1, Austria 33/1, 66/1 bar

Euro 2016 Top Goalscorer Odds

There will be a dazzling array of attacking talent on show at Euro 2016 and it is usually whoever gets off to the quickest start will get closest to the Golden Boot. Another key factor is looking at a player on a team who is likely to go deep in the contest. The brilliant Thomas Muller is 6/1 early favourite in the Euro 2016 Top Goalscorer market, following by the scoring talent of Cristiano Ronaldo at 7/1. Surprisingly on France’s Antoine Griezmann comes in at 8/1 in single figures then leading the chasing pack is Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku at 12/1, Olivier Giroud at 14/1 and Poland’s Robert Lewandowski at 16/1. At Euro 2012 six players (including Ronaldo) finished with 3 goals each as top scorers. England’s Wayne Rooney is a massive 40/1 poke, with Harry Kane shorter at 33/1.

Spain v England Betting Preview

The Three Lions can actually get to test themselves against some good opposition. After cruising to ten twins from ten in their easy Euro 2016 qualification group, England will pit their wits on the road against the reigning European champions. Both sides can boast some pretty good form, but will England be able to replicate their positive form when they take on one of the elite sides in the world? This may answer a few questions about England’s real current status.

Online betting site Boylesports are focusing on Jamie Vardy for a Spain v England promotion. The bookmaker will refund all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, anytime goalscorer, scorecast and correct score bets on the fixture if Jamie Vardy scores first. The maximum stake refunded is £25. Register an account with Boylesports and earn up to £50 worth of free bets!

Spain v England Betting Tips

How will the Three Lions measure up in this contest? England are on a great winning streak of five matches and they have gone unbeaten across their last fifteen played, which includes the ten wins which they picked up during their perfect Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. Of course, they didn’t face any one of Spain’s quality through that and simply didn’t get tested by any of their opposition there. England boss Roy Hodgson has some injury issues to compensate for as his side defends its long unbeaten streak against Spain and then France. Phil Jagielka, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Ings are all out through injury. Only five players in the squad have won more than the 18 caps that Raheem Sterling has won for his country.

So not a great deal of experience around, but there are some great positives in looking to the future with the youth that England have. Along with Sterling, who is determined to improve his goal output, England can take a look at the likes of Dele Alli, Ross Barkley, Eric Dier and Harry Kane. When Jack Grealish gets clearance he will add to a great young midfield. Tottenham’s Harry Kane, who is in a hot scoring streak at the moment is 5/2 in the anytime goalscorer market, the same price as England’s record scorer Wayne Rooney. Jamie Vardy is a 3/1 poke. This isn’t a game where you would expect a hatful of goals, though because three of Spain’s last four friendly matches have featured two goals or fewer.

The last four games in Spain between these two have gone under 2.5 goals and you can back Friday’s game to go under the goal line for 8/13 with Boylesports. Spain are in great form at the moment, currently run on a six-match winning streak. Impressively during that run, they have shipped just the one goal as well. At home in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, they averaged exactly three goals per game and conceded just the one goal in their five home fixtures. That’s going to be tough for England to break down. Chelsea’s Diego Costa has been recalled and he is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option, the same price as Paco Alcacer and Alvaro Morata. This isn’t going to be an easy trip to Alicante for England.

Spain v England Betting Odds

Spain 7/10, Draw 13/5, England 4/1

Spain v England Predictions

Some big questions should be asked of England here, even though it is a friendly. Spain are defensively tight and will control most of the possession in the game. England at the end of the day may be more concerned about not losing their unbeaten streak than pushing for the win. A Spain 1-0 correct score has big appeal at 9/2.

Klaas Jan Huntelaar (Holland)

Netherlands v Spain Betting Preview

Both of these are still looking to discover themselves at the moment. The Netherlands are in all sorts of a mess having won just two of their last six games played. Spain are a side in transition after last year’s World Cup and have lost two of their last six which is uncharacteristic of La Roja. Big European heavyweight clash in a friendly at the Amsterdam Arena on Tuesday night. Who will come out on top?

Netherlands v Spain Betting Tips

Tough times it would seem for the Netherlands at the moment. The Oranje have only managed a W2 D1 L2 record from their opening five matches in Euro 2016 qualification. In their latest match over the weekend, they needed a last minute equaliser at home against Turkey to salvage something. They just aren’t clicking in any department at the moment, especially at the back. They already have a lot of ground to make up to group leaders the Czech Republic and second placed Iceland in Euro 2016 qualification Group A. It has been a downward spiral since the World Cup from the Dutch who have posted a poor W2 D1 L4 record since Brazil 2014.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is a 7/5 quote for the Dutch in the anytime goalscorer market for the game against Spain, and that is the same quote on offer from Bet365 on Bas Dost. The goals are there for the Dutch, but they are unreliable at the back, having managed just the one clean sheet in their last seven international. It has been pretty poor from them and that will only invite pressure on themselves from Spain. The Dutch hammered the Spaniards 5-1 at the World Cup but they are nowhere near that level at the moment and have a long way back to get there.

The Spaniards are not running at the top of their form at the moment. They were damaged at the 2014 World Cup and since the tournament ended they have only managed a W4 L3 record. That’s not the Spain that we all know. But two of the defeats were against France and Germany in international friendly matches, but there was a shock 2-1 loss against Slovakia in the European Champions 2016 qualifiers which rocked them. They are transitioning but a positive 1-0 win over the Ukraine in the Euro 2016 qualifiers will have done them good. The goal was netted by Alvaro Morata who is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer for the Italy game. A bit light up front, but will likely dominate position still.

Netherlands v Spain Betting Odds

Spain 8/5, Netherlands 7/4, Draw 12/5

Netherlands v Spain Predictions

There are likely to be big changes to starting elevens in this one. A good chance for both to experiment a little. Coming so soon after the Euro 2016 qualifiers, it is likely to peter out into a low scoring draw.

30th March 2015 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Football Betting


England return to Euro 2016 qualification duties on Friday night as they host Lithuania at Wembley. This is the first time that the two nations have met and the Three Lions will be hoping to continue their 100% record in qualification so far, having won their opening opening group games. England, who have scored 11 goals and conceded just one so far, should find the going easy against the Lithuanians, who have failed to score a single goal in their last three matches played (D1 L2).

After their World Cup 2014 horror show, Spain are a nation in transition, but with thirteen goals scored so far in their four qualification matches (eight of them at home), they will be confident of picking up maximum points against the Ukraine. The two are locked on nine points, three back of surprise group leaders Slovakia heading into the weekend. But Spain have won each and every one of their last 14 European Championship home matches, and will be expected to break down the Ukraine’s solid defence.

Spain v Germany Betting Preview

A heavyweight clash for this international friendly. It should be one of the highlights of midweek fixture list. Both of the giants have been a bit below par since the World Cup though and this one has a little added factor of each trying to prove to the other that they are still a force to be reckoned with. The last time they met was back at the 2010 World Cup as La Roja marched to the title. Can they bank a win over the current world champions?

There is plenty of coverage on your football betting available at online bookmaker William Hill. There is 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance to take on select markets and if you back a player in the first goalscorer market who doesn’t score the opening goal of the game but nets the second then you will get your lost stake on that player refunded as a free bet.

Spain v Germany Betting Tips

There is a bit of the feeling that the Spaniards are still in a bit of transition after their horrific World Cup 2014 campaign. They are making decent strikes towards Euro 2016 as expected, but they did suffer a shock loss against Slovakia in their qualifying group. A bad day at the office perhaps? Well it was their second loss in their last six matches played (W4) so there are vulnerabilities there clearly. They have won their last two matches played with a clean sheet in tow, but victories of Luxembourg and Belarus are expected to be routine.

From 21 previous encounters between Spain and Germany, the Spaniards trail 7-8. However, they are on a three match winning streak against the Germans and are edging this as favourites at the bookmakers. They are still packed with quality of course and have match winners in their ranks, the current team just looks as if they need a bit more time together. In the anytime goalscorer market Paco Alcacer is a 6/4 favourite, with Alvaro Morata at 2/1 behind him. Alcacer has scored in two of his last three internal appearances.

Since winning the World Cup in the summer, Germany have won just two of their five games. They are another of the European giants that are in transition as well, and their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign hasn’t really come to life. With a defeat in there against Poland, a draw against Ireland and hard-earned win over Scotland, Die Mannschaft are not quite at the peak of efficiency that they were in the summer. Even their 4-0 win over Gibraltar on the weekend, really wasn’t as good as you would have expected from them, punters having backed the Germans to potentially reach double figures in that one.

Like Spain, they are blessed with immense talent and Thomas Muller is always worth a shot in the anytime goalscorer market for a price of 2/1 with William Hill. Germany though have failed tos core in either of their last two matches against Spain though and just one in the last three meetings. Given the fact that they don’t look at their best at the moment, punters may just backing them for a victory in the game in Spain. There is enough firepower on both sides to suggest that the game is going to go over 2.5 goals though.

Spain v Germany Betting Odds

Spain 23/20, Germany 12/5, Draw 9/4

Spain v Germany Predictions

Neither are really on top form at the moment and both having been showing a bit of frailty at the back. Both will want to a prove a point in this one, but at the moment the Spaniards probably just shade it a little bit if you are shooting for a win. Reason enough though to bank on parity coming out of this one at the end of the day.

France v Spain Betting Preview

Another big European friendly clash on Thursday night, as France and Spain come together. They were paired together in the World Cup 2014 qualifiers and the French pushed the Spaniards hard, but still came out second best. But with their respective performances at the finals, Les Bleus are running as 6/4 favourites with online betting site Bet Victor for this one, leaving Spain handing out an unfamiliar price of 2/1.

There are some great looking international friendly matches around during the week and online bookmaker Bet Victor have good insurance for accas going, to take advantage of. Place a five fold or bigger on the Both Teams To Score market, if just one leg lets you down, then Bet Victor will give you a free bet up to £25.

France v Spain Betting Tips

The French were clearly the better of the two sides at the 2014 World Cup, with Spain embarrassingly crashing out in the group stage as defending champions. They played each other twice during World Cup qualification, with France losing 1-0 at home after taking a 1-1 draw out in Spain. So very tight margins between the two and would expect that to continue as well by backing the game to go under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/7 with online betting site Bet Victor. The last five meetings have all gone under the mark.

So how much value are France, considering that they haven’t won any of the last five games against the Spaniards. Quite a bit, despite that run of form. They will have more of the settled squad as Spain look to rebuild themselves after their World Cup humiliation. France will be without Olivier Giroud so it could be to new Chelsea man Loic Remy at 2/1 or Karim Benzema for the same price that punters will look to for value for the French to get on the scoresheet. Games like this are going to be important for France now, who won’t have competitive qualification matches as they are the hosts of Euro 2016. So Didier deschamps has to keep momentum going with friendly wins.

Where do Spain go after World Cup 2014? Vicente del Bosque has remained in his job, which is nice after all that he has done for them. Three is a much younger looking squad in attendance, with the likes of Xavi, Fernando Torres, David Villa and Xabi Alonso out of the picture. They still have an envious midfield, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta, Isco and Koke in there. It is to the youngsters that Spain really have to look now to fill the hole. They do still look a bit short up top, with just Pedro and Diego Costa being joined by the uncapped Paco Alcacer for this one. Costa, with his great early form for Chelsea, is a 2/1 shot in the anthem goalscorer market.

France v Spain Betting Odds

France 6/4, Spain 2/1, Draw 11/5

France v Spain Predictions

Punters have to be looking forward to this one, just to see what becomes of Spain. They really have to turn to their youngsters, and they could be there for the taking by France, as it could take some time for the new Spanish set up to come together. More than enough value on France to take the win at 6/4, but don’t expect Spain to give this game away, so it will probably be tight.

Mesut Oezil (GER)

Well, Germany became the first European nation to win a World Cup in South America, and that followed Spain becoming the first European nation to win a World Cup outside of their own continent four years ago in South Africa. It is back to Europe in four years time as the biggest tournament in the world heads to Russia. Of course, with controversy running around the organisation of just about every World Cup that comes along, the market as to whether or not Russia will actually host it or not, will probably kick up over the next four years.

So, with a long four years to go until the World Cup 2018 betting kicks off, you can actually get some good ante post bets down on the outright winner market right now at online betting site Ladbrokes. Germany will be defending champions and after a good decade of investment in their youth and development, it all came to fruition at Brazil 2014 for them. Boss Joachim Low suggested that Germany can rule the world for years to come now as they have such a strong foundation in place.

They may well might and they are running as favourites to win the 2018 World Cup at a price of 5/1 with online betting site Ladbrokes. You can look at the main protagonists in the outright betting and see that the top four are the top four which were heading up the 2014 World Cup outright winner market. Argentina are running as 7/1 second favourites to go one better than 2014 and win the tournament, with Spain and Brazil as 8/1 shots.

France are trading at 10/1, followed by Italy, Holland and Belgium around the 16/1 mark and then comes England all the way out at 20/1 shots with Ladbrokes. That is the same price as hosts Russia, and Portugal, with Colombia trailing them at 22/1. Of course with qualification not starting for another couple of years you are taking long dark shots really behind that on teams currently trading at 50/1 or greater.
