Euro 2020 is underway and continues through July 11, and there are plenty of angles to consider before making your bets. Here’s an overview of the favorites.
France (+480 to win): The 2018 World Cup champions certainly got no favors from the draw, as they’re grouped with defending Euro champion Portugal and a Germany. But eight of the 11 starters who brought a second world title to France are back for more this year, and there’s a chance this team might actually be better than the world champion from three years ago.
England (+540): Harry Kane is back after leading the 2018 World Cup in goals and helping the Three Lions to their highest finish in 28 years. But this isn’t a particularly seasoned English team, and Group D is sneaky tough.
Belgium (+750): If you believe FIFA’s world rankings, the Belgians are the world’s best team entering the tournament, a position they’ve held since their third-place finish at the World Cup in 2018. But there are questions about the health of stars Kevin De Bruyne, and Axel Witsel,
Portugal (+800): The defending Euro champions still have Cristiano Ronaldo, who’s still getting it done at age 36, and a stalwart defense that might be the best in the entire tournament.
Germany (+900): It’s the swan song for Manager Joachim Low, who will step down after the tournament. Recent results include a 6-0 thumping by Spain in November and a stunning 2-1 loss to North Macedonia on March 31..
Italy (+900): Playing their first three games at home, it would be a tremendous shock if the Italians didn’t at least win Group A, which also includes Turkey, Wales and Switzerland.
Spain (+900): Manager Luis Enrique has shaken things up by leaving legendary center-back Sergio Ramos off his final roster. But the team’s final preparations hit a rocky patch when captain Sergio Busquets tested positive for coronavirus on Sunday, meaning he could miss much of the group stage while in isolation.
