England's chances at the Euro 2016
Euro 2016 England Outright oddsThe Three Lions haven't been trading too badly in the Euro 2016 outright market really all things considered. They had a really easy qualifying campaign from which they posted a 100% record and that has helped raise their status. You still have to go out and win games and you can only beat what is put in front of you. England are 11/1 with online betting site Sky Bet. That puts them as joint fourth-favourite to go and win the whole thing.
Only World Champions Germany, current European champions Spain and host nation France are shorter priced than England are in the Euro 2016 outright winner market. Of course this leads to a lot of expectation and optimism surrounding the challenge of England at a major tournament and all too often we have been led down a completely different path when the tournament actually arrives.
But this time there is a better feeling about the England camp as they aren't short of attacking options. They have Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane now to slot home the goals and the back up of veteran Wayne Rooney and Hodgson favourite Danny Welbeck. There's creativity in the midfield with Barkley, Alli and Raheem Sterling. You have a world class keeper in Joe Hart. The only real area of contention is the defence, which doesn't look up to all that much and may ultimately be their downfall.
