What Are Betting Tips?

A betting tip is a piece of advice on which bet to take, provided by a tipster who often claims to be more knowledgeable than the bookmakers who set the odds. When placing bets, it is always a good idea to base your bet on the opinion of an expert if you want the best chance of your bet being successful. In a lot of cases, betting tips will look at the key information of each team and weight up their relative probability of success compared to the odds set by the bookies
Bookmakers, whether online or land-based, generally base odds around the implied probability of the event, although odds will also move depending on what people are betting on. Bookmakers set their odds carefully to gain the maximum amount of profit, but that does not mean they are infallible.
In many cases, the bookmaker's odds will strongly favour a team based on their current form without looking at other factors such as injuries or head-to-head form. By looking at all the data and statistics of past matchups, team news and form, tipsters can suggest which bet to pick and find the best value for you.
If you want to profit from sports betting, you will usually have to spend a lot of time and effort researching the teams and their chances, but by listening to a tipster, you can reduce the amount of work you have to put in. Provided you have a trusted tipster who uses data to come to conclusions on which bet to choose, you will have the chance to profit more from your sports bets.
When placing bets on the EUROs, there are some very important factors to keep in mind. For example, if you are betting on the over/under markets for cards, you should have a look at which referee oversees the game in question as well as their current track record. This is also the case if you want to bet on that a penalty kick will be awarded in a game for example.

Statistics: Here are the referees that give the most cards at EURO 2020

19 referees will be at the EUROs 2020, which as we know was postponed for a year due to the pandemic. In this article, we will bring you statistics for all the referees at the tournament. For example, who is most likely to issue cards?
Although most people probably have their full focus on the actual games and the players participating in them, the referee also often comes into focus during the 90 minutes. Especially since VAR (Video Assistant Referee) has been part of the football in recent years. The technological development with video help for the referees has not exactly reduced the focus on the referees’ rulings.
The EUROs this summer will be the second international tournament, where VAR will be taken into use. The first time was at the World Cup 2018 in Russia. Thus, the VAR-system will make its debut at the EUROs this summer.

List of referees for the EUROs 2020

Below is a list of the 19 referees who will participate in the EUROs this summer, which will take place at 11 stadiums across Europe. For the first time ever, a female referee is among them. It is Stéphanie Frappart from France, and she will be given tasks as fourth official at this tournament.
The EURO referees cannot referee matches where their home country is one of the parties involved. This means that Daniel Orsato, who by the way was named the world’s best football referee in 2020 by IFFHS, will not be able to referee any of Italy’s matches during the EUROs. Orsato also took charge of the Champions League final in 2020 between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
Romanian referees Ovidiu Hategan and István Kovács, Slovenian Slavko Vincic, Israeli Orel Grinfeld and Argentine Fernando Rapallini are the only referees available in principle for all EURO matches, as none of their nations are among the participants in this tournament.
Incidentally, Rapallini is the first non-European referee to participate at a EUROs. More on that below.

NOTE: These statistics have been gathered from worldreferee.com on the 27th of May 2021. The statistics only include international matches. That means all national matches (including youth internationals) and European club tournaments such as the Champions League and Europa League.
As the first table shows, German referee Daniel Sibert is statistically the man who gives the most cards at this year’s EUROs. However, it must also be said that he is the referee with the least international matches, and in his 35 matches so far, he has given a total of 160 yellow and 12 red cards. Israeli referee Orel Grinfeld is the man who awards most penalties statistically as shown in the second table. He has awarded 24 penalties in 60 internal matches so far. For the first time, a South American referee will participate at a EUROs. This is as a result of a development program within the framework of cooperation agreement between UEFA and the South American Football Association CONMEBOL. Argentine referee Fernando Rapallini and his team will therefore join the selected European group of referees at the EURO 2020 tournament. Spanish referee Jesús Gil Martinez and his team have been selected for this summer’s Copa America, which takes place at the same time as the EUROs. This is also due to the cooperation between UEFA and CONMEBOL. At the World Cup 2018 in Russia, no English referees were present. However, this is not the case at the EUROs 2020, where both Michael Oliver and Anthony Taylor are among the selected group.

How were the referees selected?

The referees at the EURO 2020 have been selected based on various criteria. They can be seen below.
  1. Experience from previous international tournaments such as the World Cup and the EUROs.
  2. The number of high-profile matches in the Champions League or Europa League.
  3. Statistics on the referee’s home league (disciplinary level, match performance and number of mistakes made).
  4. Spoken languages – a good understanding of English is a must.
  5. Ability to control the players and clearly express decisions.
  6. The number or referees from the same nation already elected.
Should an injury occur to one or more referees, the reserve referee list will come into place to find replacements. If a selected referee fails the physical tests, that person will also be replaced with someone from the reserve list. Three days before a given EURO match, UEFA announces which referee will take charge of the match in question. When both EURO semi-finals have been played, it will be announced who will referee the EURO 2020 final on the 11th of July at Wembley Stadium in London.

VAR at the EUROs

As mentioned, VAR will be used for the first time at the EUROs this summer. VAR has been part of top football for some years now, and as mentioned before it was also used at the World Cup 2018 in Russia.
At the EUROs 2020, it will be very surprising if some VAR rulings along the way will not cause controversy and heat up the ongoing discussion about technological advancements in the game of football.

Types of Betting Tips We Offer

For the Euro 2021 Championship, we have spent a lot of time analysing each of the teams, players and head coaches to determine the potential outcomes of each of the games. Through looking at form and head-to-head records, we have written up some of our top Euro 2021 betting tips that will help you make the most out of your bets.
As the Euros is one of the world's biggest football competitions, most bookmakers offer a huge range of different markets for you to bet on. As a result, we have lots of different types of tips for you to choose from. Each of our tips considers the data on each team as well as the odds to help give you the best chance of placing successful bets. Some of the main betting tips we provide include:

Outright/Tournament Winner

Outright winner bet is one of the main betting markets for the Euro 2021 Championship and a favourite for a lot of bettors. Right now, France and England are considered the favourites, with France having just won the 2018 World Cup while England have a star-studded team.
When choosing which team we think will win the tournament outright, we look at the current form of each team along with their form at past tournaments. On top of this, we consider the quality of their players and how their squad looks compared to other teams. Lastly, our tips make a note of the group that each team is in, as this can affect how favourable a team's run is, and the momentum they are able to build up over the course of the tournament.

Top Goalscorer

The golden boot is won by the player who scores the most goals over the course of the tournament. Typically, this award is won by a player on one of the best teams as there is a much higher chance of scoring more goals the more games that are played. This is a popular market to bet on as it is not just a case of betting on the best player. You will also need to consider the team that they play for and the quality surrounding them.
The current top goalscorer odds have Kane as the favourite, with players like Lukaku, Ronaldo and Mbappe not far behind. Our tips look carefully at the strength of the players and the team they play for, as well as the teams they are playing against. Those that win the golden boot often have the good fortune of playing against weaker teams during the group stages.

Player of the Tournament

The golden ball is awarded to the player voted as the best of the tournament based on their performances throughout the competition. This is generally a much harder one to predict, but it is a lot of fun to bet on due to the unpredictable nature of the competition and the award.
As with the top goalscorer, the best player award generally goes to a player whose team went far in the competition, and it often goes to a player on the winning team or a player on a smaller team that exceeded expectations. Our golden ball tips assess the form of top players coming into the tournament to pick out who has the best chance of putting in standout performances.

Match Result

A match result bet is a bet on either a win for the home side, a draw or a win for the away side. This is one of the most common types of Euro 2021 tips, especially during the group stages where the games tend to be easier to predict. Predictions are based on the strength of the two teams as well as their current form in the tournament. It is also important to consider the odds when making a tip, as a team with high odds to win isn't necessarily a good tip due to low payout potential.

Total Goals

The Total goals, or over/under betting over/under betting, is one of the most popular ways to bet on football, with bettors choosing over or under a specific amount of goals to be scored during a match. Tips for total goals usually rely on form and judging the relative strength of the attack and defence of both teams. Tournament games also tend to feature a lower number of goals on average, particularly during the knockout stages where both teams are playing cautiously. We factor this into our tips, helping you pick the right option for the total number of goals scored in a game.

To Qualify

The Euro 2021 Championship features six groups with four teams of. Of these teams, only the top two from each group can qualify at the end of the group stages, and the four best third-placed teams. Naturally, bettors can place bets on whether they think a team will or will not qualify from their group. This offers a lot of interesting bets as you try and guess which teams you think will advance into the knockout stages of the competition. Our tips judge the overall strength of the group as well as the strength of the team and their past performances in group stages.

Most Cards

A slight unique betting option, this allows you to choose which team you think will pick up the most red and yellow cards over the course of the tournament. Not all bookmakers will offer this market as it is niche, but it is a lot of fun to try to predict the team with the worst disciplinary record. It is normally a team that goes relatively far in the tournament and plays most of the game without possession, so it is a tough one to predict. Still, our tipsters look at the disciplinary record of each team coming into the tournament and at past tournaments. We also consider which teams are less likely to dominate possession, as they are more likely to be committing fouls when trying to win the ball back.

Correct Score

Correct score is one of the hardest bets to predict accurately, and as a result, the payouts are generally much larger than other types of bet. When coming up with our correct score tips, we consider the form of each team and their head-to-head records to see if there is a pattern in the results. We will also look at factors such as key players as well as attack and defensive records to determine the most likely final score.

Group with the Most Goals

Another fun market to bet on is which group you think will score the most goals during the first stage of the tournament. The highest-scoring group is difficult to predict, but it is often a group that features lots of lower-ranked teams or a group where two or more teams have poor defensive records. We look at all the details to determine which group has the highest chance of being a goalfest.

How to Find the Best Value on Euro 2021 Odds

As well as using betting tips, there are a few other ways you can get the most out of your Euro 2021 bets. The key is to look for value in the odds, which is where you look for discrepancies between the bookmakers' odds and the actual chance of an event.
For an example of betting value, let us say you see that Kane is 3/1 to score at any time against Scotland, but he scored the last time he played them, and he is in red hot form. This would suggest that there is a high chance of him scoring during the 90 minutes, especially considering that England are the stronger team. As a result, there would be a lot of value in betting on Kane to score at 3/1.
If you want to find the best value, follow these tips:

Choose a site with great odds

Choosing the right bookmaker is one of the most important factors in getting value out of your bets. The odds between sites can vary a lot, so you will want to check a few different sites to see which ones offer the best value. Check out our online bookmaker reviews to find sites with the best Euro2021 odds.

Do your research

Even if you are using tips, it is still a good idea to do your own research. Do not overthink things, but consider how team selections, injuries and other factors might affect the result of a match. Most of the information you need is available online, including right here on our site.

Make the most of each-way betting for outrights

If you are betting on the tournament winner, top goalscorer or best player of the tournament, do not forget you can place an each-way bet at most sites. This will double your stake but means that even if your selection comes second or third, you will still win, albeit with a lower payout.
