Spain and Germany joint favourites in latest Euro 2012 odds

(Germany) Lahm - Iniesta (Spain)
The final four are set for Euro 2012 now, and there are clear favourites in latest Euro 2012 odds. Online bookmakers are split between Spain and Germany, who are both trading at 13/8 with online bookmaker Bet365. Spain go up against Portugal in the first of the semi finals, while Germany square off against England's conquerors Italy. The two outsiders in the final four of Euro 2012 are Portugal and Italy, who are both out at 11/2 to win the tournament. Why the divide? Well naturally either Portugal or Italy would still have to (most likely) beat two of the best sides in the world to lift the trophy. So there is still a long way to go for both of those and it is a big ask. So an expected Spain/Germany final looks on the cards, even though Spain boss Vicente del Bosque has admitted that his squad is tired. The Spaniards are at a disadvantage having played their quarter final two days later than Portugal did, while Germany certainly received a boost with Italy being taken all the way to a penalty shoot out against England. So Joachim Low's Germany really make have a slight advantage here and they arguably have the easier semi final as well. So the final four are left standing now, and pretty much everything has gone to plan, except Portugal having taken the place of the Netherlands in most punters' projected semi final line ups. Two matches from glory now and who will prevail. Latest Euro 2012 outright winner odds at Bet365 Spain 13/8, Germany 13/8, Portugal 11/2, Italy 11/2 Online bookmaker Bet365 offers great insurance on Euro 2012 matches with their 0-0 Bore Draw special, which covers lost stake refunds on any losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Half Time/Full Time, all Correct Score Markets and all Scorecast markets if the game ends in a 0-0 draw.

Ronaldo makes impact in current Euro 2012 top goalscorer odds

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, thanks to a brace against the Netherlands, finally got off the mark, and now the Real Madrid star is actually looking a decent prospect in Euro 2012 Top Goalscorer odds at online bookmaker BetFred. Ronaldo, after failing to break the back of the net in the first two group matches, secured the win that sent Portugal through to the quarter final stage, where they will now meet the Czech Republic. So the draw has ended up being favourable to Portugal, and a chance at a semi final place really looks a good prospect. Portugal look a very solid outfit, very organised and are showing a great team spirit. This means that Ronaldo should get more chances and as he is only trailing to scorer Mario Gomez at the moment by one goal, Ronaldo has the ability and influence to still make a big impact at Euro 2012. Ronaldo is now trading at 4/1 second favourite in BetFred Euro 2012 odds, and could well be worth a punt. With his free kick executions, and pace to catch out defences on the break, then the latest Euro 2012 top goalscorer odds look good value for him.0 Germany's Mario Gomez, who failed to score in Germany's final group match, still sits on three goals, and with Germany still looking like the best team at the tournament, and with more still to come, should still get the games under his belt to win the Golden Boot. Gomez is currently trading at 15/8 favourite in BetFred Euro 2012 odds to finish as top scorer at Poland and Ukraine 2012. The only other player left in the tournament who is really make any positive move in the market, is Chelsea and Spain striker Fernando Torres. Torres hit a brace against Ireland, his only strikes of the tournament so far, means that he is still in contention to have a crack at the title. His fellow countryman Cesc Fabregas though is also sitting on two goals, and the former Arsenal man could be in greater favour than Torres when it comes to the serious business end of the tournament. So Fabregas, out at 14/1 in the current Euro 2012 top scorer odds, could be worth an outside shot still. Current Euro 2012 Top Goalscorer Odds at BetFred Mario Gomez 15/8, Cristiano Ronaldo 4/1, Fernando Torres 5/1, Cesc Febregas 14/1, Karim Benzema 20/1, Wayne Rooney 66/1 Popular online bookmaker BetFred offer a free £50 bet for new customers when they register an account.

Current Euro 2012 odds at Paddy Power

Paddy Power
Current Euro 2012 odds at Paddy Power have seen a big shift in the outright winner market. After an impressive victory over the Netherlands in their second group match, Germany, with maximum points after two games have now been installed as the new outright favourites. Joachim Low's men are now trading as 11/4 favourites to take the title, after showing the rest of Europe just why they are so dangerous. The Germans looked ruthless and in control against a good Dutch side, and some clinical finishing saw them rack up another win. That was a big test of their credentials and now they look as if they are firmly the ones to beat at the European Championships That is why they have been drawn in to the position of favourites at the moment, because after two games, they have produced the most convincing football of all competing nations. The Spaniards, the defending European Champions are still a major threat as well, as they are trading as narrow second favourites at 3/1 with the online bookmaker. The Top Goalscorer market is looking as if it is going to be far more lively than many had predicted, but the pre-tournament favourite is leading the way. Germany's Mario Gomez, now with three goals in two games is trading at 13/8 with Paddy Power to walk off with the Golden Boot after such a strong star, with only Russian Alan Dzagoev, with the same tally as Gomez, close to him in the market at 4/1. There are a couple of dangerous Croatians who may be worth an outside bet, as Mario Mandzukic is a healthy price of 20/1, while team mate Nikica Jelavic is out at 40/1. Aside from veteran Andriy Schevchenko netting a brace in his opening match, no-one else has really shone at Euro 2012 in the goal scoring department, and so current Euro 2012 odds at Paddy Power on Mario Gomez look a very strong option at the moment. With Germany looking as if no-one will want to come up against them, the Bayern Munich striker will get more and more chances to extend his tally. So things still look on course for a Spain/Germany final, and in the market of Name the Finalists in current Euro 2012 odds at Paddy Power, that option is favourite at 13/2. They really are the two stand out sides of the tournament, with the Netherlands falling well below their standards. Other options see a Germany/Russia price of 13/1, and a Spain/Italy final of 14/1. Where do England come in? Well, an England/Germany or an England/Spain final are both trading at 22/1. Clearly a long shot for the Three Lions to make it that far. The Player of the Tournament betting in Paddy Power Euro 2012 odds also makes for a n interesting look at the moment. This market is being dominated by Germans early on. Goalscoring hero Mario Gomez is joint favourite along with Mesut Ozil, who has looked simply brilliant. Midfield general Bastian Schweinsteiger is trading at 10/1, while Spain's creative force of Andres Iniesta, the man on whom Vicente del Bosque is pinning a lot of hopes is trading at 10/1. The young Russian star of Alan Dzagoev, who is not doubt going to be in high demand at the end of the finals, is trading back at 12/1, but has made a very big, and very positive impact on the market so far.

Euro 2012 top goalscorer odds

Euro Golden Boots
Germany's Mario Gomez produced some clinical finishing, netting a brace to see off the Netherlands in the big clash in Group B, the Group of Death. With Germany's second win in two matches, and Gomez netting three goals in those opening two games, the Bayern Munich striker has now taken back command of things in current Euro 2012 top goalscorer odds. Gomez was briefly usurped as favourite in the market, as young Russian play-maker Alan Dzagoev netted his third goal in his opening two matches. However, breaking things down, Germany look a far stronger side than Russia and at this point, Joachim Lows men look a dead cert to be contesting the final. After a couple of matches, they really have played the most convincing football of all teams and should get enough matches in for Gomez to keep racking up the goals. Gomez is trading at 6/4 in current Euro 2012 top goalscorer odds at Bet365, while Alan Dzagoev is just back at 9/2. Because there really has not been any kind of strong showing from any other recognised striker at Euro 2012, everyone else is well back of those two. Ukrainian legend Andriy Schevchenko, who netted a brace in his first match, as the Ukraine overcame Sweden, is priced well out at 20/1, with Karim Benzema, who seemed to enjoy playing more as an attacking midfielder than a striker after continuously dropping so deep against England, is trading at 16/1. There are two good options for Croatia which may just warrant a little outside bet, as Mario Mandzukic, who headed a couple in their win over Ireland, and the finishing class of Nikica Jelavic could just make a play, if Croatia can navigate their way into the quarter finals. So current Euro 2012 top goalscorer odds are clearly working as Mario Gomez for favourite. It is hard to refute that after the way he has taken his chances. He hasn't even been involved in the games all that much, but he has done what he was put in the side to do. There doesn’t appear to be any other striker in the tournament who is going to live up to his standards. Not unless Wayne Rooney comes back into action and explodes into life for England at a price of 66/1 in Bet365 Euro 2012 odds.

England odds to win Euro 2012

Roy Hodgson
England odds to win Euro 2012 have not really moved all that much, as the Three Lions are still hovering around the price of 12/1 in Bet365 Euro 2012 odds. England opened their Euro 2012 account with a 1-1 draw against France. They played a defensive game against the technically better French, simply dropping two banks of four back behind the ball and not letting France have any space in which to work. So it was a job well done in terms of avoiding defeat, but there is still a lot of work to be done in a pretty open group, with Sweden and Ukraine also contesting. There is no certainties still that England are going to muscle their way out of their group. All they have shown so far is that they are a very good defensive side, but going forward, they have offered very little in terms of possession and clear cut chances. Granted, this is not the strongest English side that coach Roy Hodgson could have fielded, and that is why England still simply remain as an outside bet at the moment. They are not perceived to be strong contenders. So England odds to win Euro 2012 really are not going to move too much from where they are at the moment. They are a long way back of favourites Germany and Spain, and even France are in at shorter odds of 9/1 in Euro 2012 odds at Bet365. Assuming England do get to the quarter finals, the matches are only going to get harder and harder, and England are an unproven force. If England win their group, they will be paired up against Croatia or Italy, while if they finish as runners up, then the likelihood is, is that they will have to face a quarter final tie against the current defending European Champions, Spain. So some tough work ahead for the Three Lions and therefore, even if they do make it to the quarter finals, even being one of the last eight, they are still not going to have their odds trimmed very much, because in amongst company such as Germany and Spain, they are still going to be an outside bet.
But let's focus on the positives of England odds to win Euro 2012 at Bet365. They are at least good value, should they spring a surprise. England have a pretty solid looking defence and they are going to be hard to break down. They also have the return of Wayne Rooney to look forward too as well, and that will immediately make them a much better side. So England could prove, like Greece did at Euro 2004 that hard work and discipline can get you as far as flair and creativity. Of course, it is a much harder route to take, and it is a less impressive one for fans to watch. But the determination in the camp of the Three Lions is there and therefore, in international football you just never know, and getting a payout on big odds of 12/1 would certainly be a nice reward!

Ireland v Spain Euro 2012 Odds – Enhanced prices

William Hill
The defending champions Spain take on Ireland on Thursday, with both sides looking for their first win in the tournament. Ireland came badly unstuck against a clinical and classy Croatia in their first match, losing 3-1 and being heavily out-classed. The Spaniards also failed to record a win in their opening fixture too, as an equalising goal from former Arsenal man Cesc Fabregas mustered up a spoil of the points with Italy in a 1-1 draw. Spain are still one of the tournament favourites to be tasting glory on July 1st, and because they are struggling to find a world class striker to fill the void that David Villa's injury has left behind, they will look to the inspiration of Andres Iniesta. The Barcelona man is one of the greats, not only with the ball at his feet, dribbling past players, but also in bringing others into the game with his wide range of vision. He is one of the true greats of this Golden Generation of Spanish football, and a lot is resting on his shoulders at the moment. Coach Vicente del Bosque has singled him out as one of the players that Spain need to rely on if they are going to successfully become the first ever nation to defend a European Championship title. With Spain opting not to play a recognised striker against Italy, and with the coach suggesting that he may go the same away again to start against Ireland, the Spaniards need Iniesta's class. So, it is time to head to online bookmaker William Hill, who are offering enhanced odds on Ireland v Spain. William Hill are offering a price of 6/1 for Andres Iniesta to score at any time during the game and for Spain to win. Not bad options at all, because in match betting, Spain are in as short as ¼ with the online bookmaker to win the match. So clearly there is going to be a lot of value in this, and with Spain looking to their creative forces of Iniesta and Fabregas to make up for a striker, there's a strong possibility of this coming off. This price has been enhanced from 10/3. Ireland v Spain Euro 2012 odds at William Hill Spain ¼, Draw 9/2, Ireland 11/1 William Hill are also offering an enhanced odds option of a price of 6/1 for Antonio Cassano to score and Italy to win. Italy face a very good looking Croatia side, as they look to make up ground in the chase for a quarter final spot from Group C. Italy are a dangerous side but they need one of their strikers to really perform in order to push on through the tournament as a dangerous threat. Will it be Cassano? This price has been enhanced from 16/5. Italy v Croatia Euro 2012 odds at William Hill Italy 6/1, Draw 11/5, Croatia 12/5
