Euro 2021 Odds: Different types of bets
Tiki taka. Counterattacking. The long-ball game. There are many different styles of football and there are also different ways of betting. But no matter whatever type of betting you enjoy, Euro2021bets will cover every type of popular Euro 2021 bet and every type of European Championship market.

For the 60th anniversary of the European Championships, EURO 2021 is a unique take on the competition with the event taking place across different European and Asian countries rather than just a single country. These countries are Azerbaijan, Denmark, England, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, the Republic of Ireland, Romania, Russia, Scotland and Spain.
Some countries will host group games only while other countries will be hosting the biggest matches of the competition. England’s Wembley Stadium will take centre stage, hosting seven matches including both semi-finals and the Euro 2021 Final on July 12th. We have a breakdown of all venues and which matches will be taking place in each one.
Twenty-four teams will take part in the Euro 2021 competition in six groups of four. The top two from each group will advance to the knockout stage, with the four best third-placed teams also going to the knockout stages. After the group stage the tournament moves to a knockout format. After the group stages comes the round of 16 and comes to a finale at the Euro 2021 Final in London.
Euro 2021 Odds: Which team will win?
During the previous tournament, Euro 2016, Cristiano Ronaldo was able to remove the only black mark on his career and won an international trophy. Portugal defied the odds and won Euro 2016. Portugal and Ronaldo are back this year doing their best to defend their title. It will be a challenge when you consider the strength in the competition this year.
Group F is the so-called group of death in this year’s competition, and it would not be a surprise if the potential winner of Euro 2021 is from this group. Portugal share the group with fellow Euro 2016 finalists and reigning world champions France, and a German side who are currently doing a squad refresh after their disappointing 2018 World Cup.
However, it is a well-known fact that home-field advantage gives teams a boost. For England, many of their matches will take place at Wembley and the backing of a home crowd will push the team. Consider that when England won the 1966 World Cup the competition took place on home soil.
They are not the only favourites with Spain, the Netherlands, Italy and Belgium all feeling like this could be their year. Whoever you think will come out on top at the European Championships this year, EuroBets2021 will cover all the odds on all matches with a vast selection of markets for you to enjoy. Whether you want to bet on Outright Winner, Match Winner, or something like Asian Handicaps, we will provide it.
England want to build on their fourth-placed finish in the 2018 World Cup in this summer’s European Championship. Three years ago in Russia, Gareth Southgate’s side were unlucky to lose to Croatia in the semi-finals. Now that the team has another three years’ experience under their belts, the team is confident that they can go all the way in this year’s tournament. England have a relatively young team that is hungry for recognition. As a potential major boost for England, five of the seven games, including the semi-final and final, will take place at Wembley.
The current World Cup champions France are joint-favourites and their squad depth and quality make them serious contenders. Their world-class players such as Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and N’golo Kante are world cup winners and know what it takes to win an international competition.
Belgium are also joint-favourites and are the number one rated team in the world according to FIFA rankings. They had a flawless qualification and got 30 points from 30. They also scored 40 goals and conceding just three. Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku are a fearsome attacking trio and a bane for defenders. This year they must finally fulfil their potential.
Germany are also one of the stronger teams in the competition, but they have been inconsistent over the past few years. Spain did not perform very well at the last World Cup and they went out in the round of 16. The Netherlands and Portugal (9/1) are underdogs to win the tournament, although both have done very well in previous iterations of this competition. Portugal are the defending champions and both teams have enough quality in their teams to perform well at Euro 2021. Italy are on an impressive 24-match unbeaten run and are the dark horse to go far in the European Championship.
A deep dive into EURO 2021 winner odds
Let’s take a look at the best bids for a EURO 2020 winner. We also assess the best EURO 2021 winner odds as well as the strongest candidates. At the time of writing France are the favourites to lift the trophy, which would see them follow up on their World Cup win 2018 in the best possible way.
Who will win EURO 2021?
If we were to go on statistics, the best bid for a final would be between Germany and Spain, as they have participated in 10 out of 15 finals (once, in 2008, against each other). But football, as most people know, is more than just statistics, and both countries have faltered a bit in recent years. Spain crashed out in the round of 16 at both the EUROs in 2016 and the World Cup in 2018, while Germany shocked the world by finishing last in their group at the World Cup in 2018 despite being one of the favourites to lift the trophy. Below you can see a top five of the biggest EURO 2021 winner favourites among the bookmakers.
EURO 2021 winner: France
As reigning world champions, France are of course big favourites to avenge the disappointing defeat in the final to Portugal five years ago and according to the bookmakers they could potentially call themselves EURO 2021 winners. The French national team can line up with star players in every single position, and most of the supporting players also have loads of talent and/or experience.
With names like Hugo Lloris in goal, Benjamin Pavard and Raphael Varane in defence, Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté in central midfield and aces like Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé in attack, the French can deliver an insanely star-studded line-up.
Add to that the fact that in Didier Deschamps they have a well-experienced coach, who will have been in the coaching seat for France for 9 years at the EUROs, and you have a very solid core.
France’s biggest potential stumbling block may very well prove to be complacency and/or lofty expectations.
EURO 2021 winner: England – first trophy since 1966?
When Gareth Southgate and The Three Lions reached the 2018 World Cup semi-finals, it marked the end of a two-decade desert trek for England, with one disappointment after the other. Before that, The Three Lions had not qualified for a semi-final in a major competition since 1996, where they were knocked out after a penalty shoot-out against Germany. At that time, the last penalty was missed by… Gareth Southgate!
Now things are looking brighter for England, whose offense finally seems to have quite a bit of firepower, which has been a rarity under previous coaches like Sven Göran Erikson and Fabio Capello, who excelled most in the defensive aspects of the game. The young offensive line with players like Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, Jadon Sancho and sharpshooter Harry Kane has on several occasions shown much more than the many different constellations of the previous two decades. The squad is somewhat thinner than many of the others in this top five, and a few injuries can potentially topple the house of cards. But at the time of writing, England is up there among the favourites.
EURO 2021 winner: Belgium
Like England, Belgium received a much-needed revival at the 2018 World Cup. Before that, they had for years had to listen is “this year is our year” for the small country the many star players. But time and time again, it ended in disappointment.
Not at the World Cup 2018 though, where Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and the rest of the star-studded line-up, among other things, knocked out Brazil before they had to lay down their arms against France in the semi-final. Belgium has many exciting young names in their squad. But they also have a few key players for whom this EUROs could be their last chance to win something (Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Dries Mertens).
EURO 2021 winner: Spain
Even before the tournament has started, the biggest problem for Spanish coach Luis Enrique seems to be finding a striker who can consistently score goals. This must be resolved if Spain is to end up as EURO 2021 winners.
Many Spaniards are baffled by the decision of Luis Enrique to not pick a single Real Madrid player for the squad and the omission of Sergio Ramos was a big surprise to many. This must have something to do with his many injuries as well as Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte using his dual citizenship to switch from France to Spain.
EURO 2021 winner: Germany
Joachim Löw survived the humiliation at the 2018 World Cup but players like Jerome Boateng did not. The Germans, who are in the process of a major generational change and who at the time of writing only have three players over 30 in the squad (Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels and Thomas Müller), have been through quite a lot of turmoil these last few years.
Fortunately, there is enough talent in the German ranks with young Kai Havertz as the last shooting star to unfold his potential. Like Spain, however, Germany also really lack the obvious goal scorer.
25-year-old Timo Werner looks like a possible bid for a German sharpshooter, but he has still not managed to score 30 goals in a season at club level, while Serge Gnabry with 8 goals in the European Championship qualifiers has proved to be Germany’s most dangerous player so far.
Previous EURO winners
It’s always a good idea to dive into a historical look at previous EURO winners. So, let’s start with an overview of that and see what we can deduct from it:
|1972||West Germany||Soviet Union|
So, in total there has been ten different EURO winners the 15 times the tournament has been held. It differs a lot from the World Cup, where 21 finals have only given eight different winners. And who has won it the most times? Here it is a dead race between Germany and Spain.
Countries by number of EURO titles
Only three teams have won the EUROs more than once, and Germany has participated in six out of 15 finals. Although half have been lost, it is most certainly an impressive record. The Soviet Union has the dubious honour of having lost as many finals as the Germans, while the Netherlands have slipped up four times in the semi-finals and thus have that unflattering record.
The biggest (football)countries that have yet to win the EUROs are England and Belgium. The Belgians were closest with their final in 1980, while England’s semi-final defeat at home to Germany in 1996 is their best result along with their third place-finish in 1986. Incidentally, here is another deviation from the World Cup that is worth noting; six times a World Cup has been won by the host country. This has only happened three times at the EUROs, namely Spain in 1964, Italy in 1968 and most recently France in 1984.
How are the current EURO 2021 winner odds looking?
Right now, the five favourites are between odds 9/2 and 9/1. This means that the favourites are estimated to have between 18.18% and 10% chance of ending up as EURO 2021 winners. If you are looking for an outsider or underdog to win the EUROs, Portugal, Italy and the Netherlands might be worth a look. They are priced between odds 8/1 and 14/1 right now, which means that they have between 11.11% and 6.66% chance of lifting the trophy this summer.
