Who will win EURO 2021?
At the time of writing, it is France (between odds 9/2 and 5/1) and England (between odds 9/2 and 11/2) who are the favourites to win the EURO 2021. England, of course, take on the favourite role because they can potentially play six out of their seven matches at home if they go all the way to the final. All three of their group matches are played in London as well as the semi-finals and the final. The question is, however, whether “it’s coming home” for England. Their defence has seemed unstable at times (which was seen against Denmark and Belgium in the Nations League).
It would be obvious to say France because in 2018 they won the World Cup in Russia and they have a star-studded team from top to toe. Players like Kylian Mbappé, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, N’Golo Kanté and Raphaël Varane are just five of the stars in Didier Deschamps’ squad. Three years ago, they won the World Cup with an extremely solid defence combined with a razor-sharp offense. Since then, several of the key players have run into a dip in form, and therefore we also have our doubts about whether France will go all the way at the EUROs 2021.
Instead, our prediction is that the third biggest favourite for the EUROs will win it; Belgium. While writing this, you can get odds 25/4 at 888sport, and this is where we believe that the bet value lies. In 2018, it was close but no cigar for the Belgians, who lost to France in the World Cup semi-final. However, the players have matured since then and Romelu Lukaku as well as Kevin De Bruyne seem even more aware of their responsibilities than in 2018, which can also be seen in their seasons at Inter Milan and Manchester City. We also saw them beating both England and Denmark in the Nations League. If they manage to get Eden Hazard back into form for the EUROs this summer, then Belgium looks like a good pick for an overall winner of the tournament.
Who will be top scorer at EURO 2021?
Top scorer bets are always one of the most entertaining betting markets at the EUROs. We all like to see goals in the matches, and there are always some good top scorer odds at the various bookmakers.
But what should one be aware of prior to placing a bet? One must at least be sure that the player is a regular starter and does not get substituted too often. Notorious goal scorers are of course a big plus, but we also James Rodríguez become the top scorer at the World Cup in 2014. In addition, one must also be sure that the team at least progresses from the group stage. It also really helps if the player takes penalties for his country.
There is a lot of good options this year, and the EUROs is packed with offensive star players. Four of the most natural to look at are of course Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku, Kylian Mbappé and Cristiano Ronaldo. The question is whether there is bet value in betting on one of these as top scorers at the EUROs?
We except that the top scorer for this EUROs will not have to make much more than 4-5 goals, and therefore there is also a good probability that multiple players will have to share the title (like the EUROs in 2012). Should it happen that the player you have placed a bet on ends up with same number of goals as one or more players, then your odds will usually be divided by the number of players with whom your choice shares the title.
We have therefore chosen to look at a slightly higher odds in our recommendation. The bet value in our opinion lies with Memphis Depay from the Netherlands. The Dutchman has had a very strong year for Lyon, where he scored 20 goals in Ligue 1, and he finds himself well-adjusted in his role as goal scorer. In addition, he has also shown good goal-scoring rates for the Netherlands, where 20 goals have been scored in 37 matches since 2017 – a pretty good ratio for the national team.
The Netherlands has also ended up in quite a nice group with Ukraine, Austria and North Macedonia, which makes the bet even more attractive.
