Euro 2020 tournament preview, betting picks & top odds

2020 UEFA European Championship

Euro 2020 is fast approaching, and despite being delayed 12 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is plenty of hype around the tournament with the FIFA World Cup coming up in 12 months’ time.

Soccer bookies have France and England as joint-favourites at +500 in Euro 2020 outright betting, just ahead of Belgium (+600) and the powerhouse duo of Spain and Italy (both +700). Reigning champions Portugal are a +900 chance to bring up consecutive European Championship titles, and it is hard to rule them out with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Jota all in the squad.

In this preview, we will break down some of the best Euro 2020 betting selections as well as an outright winner in one of the most even international football tournaments in recent times.

Euro 2020 predictions & best bets

Euro 2020 outright winner: Belgium

With France drawing the ‘Group of Death’ and England being England, the smart play looks to be with Belgium claiming Euro 2020. Led by the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens and Eden Hazard in attack, scoring goals will be no issue for Roberto Martinez’s men. They have plenty of X-factors in their side with Yannick Carrasco and Youri Tielemans both expected to have breakout campaigns. Their defence is serviceable as ever, with Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld set to reunite from their Tottenham days, whilst Thibaut Courtois will be a massive presence in goal. They have an easy group to get out of and should go through to the knockout rounds undefeated. They warmed up with a smart 1-0 friendly victory against Croatia and will prove hard to beat at Euro 2020.

Euro 2020 Group F winner: France

Group F in Euro 2020 is arguably the hardest group to get out of, but the talent at the hands of the French national team is hard to ignore. Despite us tipping Belgium to take out the tournament, the fact France are +163 to finish atop Group F is value we are finding hard to ignore. With the likes of Mbappe, Griezmann, Benzema, Dembele and Coman as potent goalscoring weapons, France will be hard to beat in the opening stages of Euro 2020 despite having to face Germany, Portugal and Hungary. If N’Golo Kante can regain full fitness in time, this French side becomes even harder to beat, with most of their reserves capable of starting in this side at any given time.

Euro 2020 top Netherlands goalscorer: Memphis Depay

Memphis Depay has seemingly discovered a new lease on life since joining Lyon in Ligue 1. His domestic form has clearly carried over to the international stage, with the former Manchester United winger netting seven goals and bagging three assists in his last seven games for the Netherlands. Depay will take the penalties, and considering Wout Weghorst is arguably his only danger in this market, odds of +125 look great value.
