Long-term outright bets are a popular form of sports betting with punters that do not mind waiting until the end of a tournament to get their winnings. Outright bets are also a good way to get an idea of how tournaments will play out and which players will perform. Some bookmakers also offer outright bets even after the tournament has started, whereby the odds will vary depending on the performance of the team or the player. There are already a number of Euro 2021 outright bets which are currently available.
Plenty of UK bookmakers are offering Euro 2021 odds on the tournament winners, top goalscorers, to reach the final, best player of the tournament, and others.
Check out our guide to What do Sports Betting Odds Mean, if you would like to understand what all the odds signify.
The five best EURO 2021 outright bets
In the following section, we review the five best EURO 2021 outright bets. England, Belgium, France, Germany and Spain are currently considered the most obvious EURO 2021 outright winners by Euro 2021 bookies.
The Three Lions delivered one of their better results in recent times as they finished fourth at the World Cup three years ago in Russia. They will of course be disappointed to have lost the semi-final to Croatia after extra time – and also losing the following bronze-match to Belgium – but the World Cup 2018 was a clear step in the right direction after a very disappointing 12th place finish at the EUROs in 2016, where the small football nation Iceland knocked them out.
The English were quite convincing in their qualification, snatching seven victories in eight matches against Czech Republic, Kosovo, Bulgaria and Montenegro. England went goal-crazy and players like Harry Kane (12 goals) and Raheem Sterling (8 goals) contributed diligently to the convincing +31 goal score (37-6) in the qualifying matches.
At the EUROs 2021, England have the advantage of playing all three initial group matches (against Croatia, the Czech Republic and Scotland) at Wembley Stadium. Should they reach the late knockout-stages, they can look forward to play both the semi-final and the final at home in London.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane is arguably England’s biggest profile. However, the Manchester duo consisting of Raheem Sterling (Man City) and Marcus Rashford (Man Utd) are by no means not equally important. The talent pool in the English squad seems huge, but the question is whether the talent lies too much with the offensive base rather than the defensive one?
Belgium beat England 2-0 in the third-place match (lost 1-0 to France in the semi-finals) at the World Cup in 2018, and thus the Belgians managed to achieve their best result since 1980. At the EUROs in 2016, Eden Hazard and co. reached the quarterfinals and there are several indications that the Belgian national football team is approaching its climax this summer.
They delivered a completely flawless qualification, where they snatched 10 victories out of 10 possible. 40 goals scored and only 3 conceded shows extreme superiority in a group where Russia, Scotland, Cyprus, Kazakhstan and San Marino had no chance against them. Romelu Lukaku was most diligent in front of goal (7 goals), but also players like Eden Hazard (5 goals), Michy Batshuayi (4 goals) and Kevin De Bruyne (4 goals) chipped in.
At the EUROs 2021, Belgium ended up in Group B with Denmark, Russia and Finland. Belgium plays two matches in Saint Petersburg and one in Copenhagen, and even though they are facing both Russia and Denmark away, Roberto Martinez’s squad is considered a big favourite to win the group.
The Belgian national team is packed with star players. Eden Hazard (Real Madrid), Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) and Thibaut Courtois (Real Madrid) are among the biggest. It will be exciting to see if the Belgians can exploit the untapped potential that has developed over the years.
There has probably been almost no EURO- or World Cup tournament in the last 20 years, where “Die Mannschaft” has not been among the favourites. This year is no exception and it is despite Joachim Löw’s troops disappointing badly at the World Cup in 2018 where they crashed out of the group stages.
Germany has, since the World Cup in Russia, tried to push through a generational change. Players like Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sané, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka are the new stars for the German squad. However, the squad still does not seem quite homogeneously composed. The defence has suffered a setback after Joachim Löw said goodbye to Jerome Boateng, and they do not quite seem to be able to find the new central back pairing.
Unfortunately for the German football fans, they have one of the most difficult groups at the EUROs 2021, and that is probably why they are not higher up on the favourite list. They can look forward to matches against France, Portugal and Hungary.
Of course, one does not do a favourite review without including the defending world champions. France surpassed everything and everyone at the World Cup in 2018. With six victories in seven matches they made sure that “Les Bleus” was engraved in the trophy for the first time since 1998. In the final, France managed to defeat Croatia 4-2. The fact that France also won silverware at the EUROs 2016 testifies that they are doing things the right way now.
Despite a bit of a wobble, France managed to top their qualifying group ahead of Turkey (25 points against 23 points). Iceland followed with 19 points, followed by Albania, Andorra and Moldova. The French won 8 out of 10 matches, and Olivier Giroud, who did not score a single goal at the 2018 World Cup, became the French top scorer in the qualifying group with a total of six goals.
France has ended up in something of a dynamite pool at the EUROs 2021, where they must face the defending EURO champions from Portugal and a revenge-hungry Germany. They are also facing Hungary who beat Iceland in the playoffs. France’s group matches will take place in Munich and Budapest.
In France, it is first and foremost that collective that is great, but… let’s just highlight PSG superstar Kylian Mbappé, Barcelona ace Antoine Griezmann and Manchester United’s midfield general Paul Pogba.
Where does Spain stand in 2021? The days of players like Andrés Iniesta, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas are over, and although the Spaniards know how to produce talented midfielders, there are some capacities that have waved goodbye over the past handful of years. It is also seen clearly in the results: First place at the World Cup in 2010 and EUROs in 2012 have been exchanged with a 23rd and 10th place respectively at the World Cup in 2010 and 2018, as well as a 10th place at the EUROs in 2016.
In the EURO qualifiers, Spain went through their group undefeated. Eight wins and two draws (31-5 in goal score) meant a Spanish first place finish with five and nine down to Sweden and Norway respectively. Romania, the Faroe Islands and Malta were the other nations in the group, with Sergio Ramos, Álvaro Morata and Rodrigo sharing the Spanish top scorer title with four goals each.
Spain play all their EURO 2021 group matches at home in Sevilla (at La Cartuja). Sweden, Poland and Slovakia will all come to contest them here. As the review of the Spanish EURO qualifiers reveal, they really need to find a goal getter. This is their biggest challenge at this version of the EUROs.
