Euro 2016 Odds
Best betting odds for the Euro 2016Here you can find the details of the best Euro 2016 odds. The countdown to the big summer of football is on, with France 2016 rapidly approach. The 24 qualified nations won't have a lot of preparation time between the close of most of the domestic seasons around Europe and the start of Euro 2016, which gets underway on June 10th with the France v Romania fixture.
The qualification process saw the big surprise of the Netherlands failing to make the finals, but the rest of the big guns like Germany, Spain, England and Italy will be joining the hosts France at the finals. It's a great football fest for a month in what is an expanded European Championships. This time, for the first time, there are 24 teams participating at the final, a rise from the 16 at recent events. So the road to the final has gotten just a little bit longer who is likely to get there?
Euro 2016 Odds - Outright WinnerWho doesn't like to be the one who has successfully pulled the right team from the office sweepstakes? Who doesn't like to be the one who gets to say "I told you so" by picking a pre-tournament outright winner on the European Championships? There are some big, tempting odds around in the ante post market, at least on the chasing pack. You have the power duo of Germany and France running as 10/3 outright joint-favourites in Euro 2016 odds.
That leaves Spain, who are on a hat trick of European Championship titles out at 11/2. Those are the only three nations of the twenty four who are running at a price shorter than double figures in the outright winner market, so there is good value to be found perhaps on an each way bet on one of the chasing pack. Who is leading the chasing pack according to the bookmakers? England are at 11/1, followed by Belgium at 12/1 and then Italy at 16/1 and Portugal at 18/1. Every other nation beyond that is bar 22/1.
Euro 2016 Odds - Match BettingEuro 2016 Odds on match betting at the tournament can already be found. There are some big games around, with France 5/11 to take down Romania (19/2) in the curtain raiser in St Denis on Friday, June 10th. Home nations England and Wales both step into action immediately on Saturday, June 11th with the Welsh an 8/5 shot to beat Slovakia (11/5) in their opener, while England have a tough opening game on the hands too as they go at a quote of 6/5 to beat Russia (12/5) in what could potentially be an early-group decider in Pool B.
Other highlights of the first round of group stage matches are Poland (19/20) v Northern Ireland (4/1), with the Republic or Ireland at 11/5 to beat Sweden (11/7) in a big game for the men in green. Belgium's clash with Italy on Monday, June 30th should be a cracker too, with the Red Devils at 6/4 for the win and the Azzurri at 2/1.
So that is skimming over some early odds for Euro 2016 match betting but your options are wide open for your betting at France 2016 and it usually starts with the outright winner odds.
Euro 2016 Odds - Team SpecialsEngland qualified with an impressive 100% record of course and that has raised their stock a bit. They haven't been a great European Championship side since they hosted it back in 1996 when they fell at the semi final stage. As always there is optimism abound ahead of a major international tournament where England are attending. You can take a dip into the team specials for Euro 2016 odds and try and cash in on some England-specific wagers, likes the Stage of Elimination where they are 11/4 to get knocked out at the quarter finals. Harry Kane is a 4/1 punt behind 7/2 outright favourite Wayne Rooney in the England top goalscorer market.
The same kind of team specials can be found for the rest of the home boys travelling across the Channel this summer. Northern Ireland are 10/3 to make it to the round of sixteen and no further, while you can take a price of 15/8 on the Republic of Ireland to make a round of sixteen exit, while Gareth Bale is a 5/4 poke to be the top scorer for Wales at the 2016 European Championships. It's great alternative markets like this that really brings Euro 2016 odds to life.
Euro 2016 Odds Top GoalscorerHaving touched on goalscorer markets above for Euro 2016 odds, there is of course the big individual honour of the Golden Boot, the man who finishes Top Scorer at the tournament. Six players finished on a three goal tally four years ago at Euro 2012, including Mario Mandzukic, Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Balotelli. But it was Spain's Fernando Torres who claimed the Golden Boot because of having assisted a goal during the tournament where none of the others did.
Spain's David Villa claimed the Euro 2008 Golden Boot with a four goal haul (unmatched by any other player). Of course this time around there is an extra game that anyone getting to the final will have to play. Over the last five tournaments (where there has been sixteen teams in attendance) there has been an average of 4.4 goals scored to win the Golden Boot. So you are looking for someone who can slot home four to five goals to get close to the award. The deeper a striker is going to go into the tournament with his side, means a bigger chance to rack up the goals.
In Euro 2016 Top Goalscorer odds you have Germany's genius Thomas Muller at 8/1, Cristiano Ronaldo at 9/1 and France's Karim Benzema at 9/1, followed by fellow countrymen Antoine Griezmann at 12/1 and Olivier Giroud at 14/1. If Spain are going to continue their streak of Top Goalscorers, than Diego Costa could be value at 16/1 or Paco Alcacer a huge tempting price at 25/1. England's Harry Kane is a 25/1 poke to finish the tournament with the Golden Boot.
