Euro 2021 betting tips & predictions

If you are more than ready for the Euro Championships to take place in 2021, this is a post that you definitely need to read. 

Euro Championships 2021: Top Bookmakers to Choose

Coral

Coral has quite a large sportsbook and a particularly large selection of markets for football. This is true for the Euro Championships scheduled for 2021, and by joining Coral today, you can get £20 in totally free sports bets. 

Bet365

For betting on football, bet365 is one of the very best in the UK. It has a super-sharp interface for both the desktop and mobile platforms, and for brand new customers, bet365 has a hugely appealing welcome offer, which can be claimed ahead of the Euro Championships. 

Paddy Power

Fancy taking a stab at a £10 risk-free football bet? That’s exactly what you can take advantage of with Paddy Power, and of course, anything that you do manage to win with this initial bet is yours to cash out – simple! 

Euro Championships 2021 Tips: Favorites to Win

Coral

With Coral, the favourites are currently France and England. Obviously, France won the last World Cup and the team is full of superstars, which is why they are up there in the odds prices. 

Bet365

With bet365, it would seem that England is the favourites as the odds stand at 6.00, and France is narrowly behind with odds of 6.50. In the mix is also Belgium, with odds of 6.50 to lift the trophy as well. 

Paddy Power

Paddy Power, like the other two betting brands in this list, has also got England down as the favourites for glory in the Euro Championships 2021. England is listed at 5.50 to finish victorious in next year’s event, which puts them above other teams like Belgium and France.

Why is England listed as favourites?

This was a bit of a surprise, we must admit, but the young England squad has been putting in regularly great performances of late. They managed to blitz through qualification for the Euros, and we cannot ignore that they made the semi-final of the World Cup in 2018 too. Some may say that youth is no substitute for experience, and while this is true to some extent, a youthful team also goes hand in hand with fearlessness and courage. 

 

Euro Underdogs

Croatia

How can we not list the finalists of the World Cup in 2018? These guys are floating at around 34.00 odds at most bookmakers, which puts them as clear underdogs for the event. The Croatian side is still full of remarkable players, and this could prove quite handy when this tournament rolls around. 

Spain

Spain may not have youth on their side, but with the experience shown in these ranks, it’s just impossible to rule Spain out. With players like Sergio Ramos leading the pack, Spain could prove to be a bit of a dark horse for the tournament. 

Portugal

Portugal, amazingly, managed to win the previous Euros held in 2016. They managed to scrape a 1-0 victory in the final against France, despite an injured Ronaldo. Just imagine what they can do with a fully fit Ronaldo in this event, and who knows, maybe they will replicate the success of 2016? 

Odds Comparison

Clearly, bet365 has the best odds on the teams ahead of this year’s Euro Championships. This brand is ahead of both Paddy Power and Coral, and this isn’t just true for the favourites market either. Bet365 is still offering higher than average odds for almost all other teams, which is definitely something to pay attention to. 

Most common bets for Euro Championships 2021 predictions

To qualify

The Euro Championships always start out in the group stage, which is why you can find ‘to qualify’ markets in the first place. You might not get great odds for teams that are favourites for the event, but you can certainly unearth some value for a few of the underdog teams. 

Top 4 finish

For your chosen team to bring you any money in this one, they must reach at least the semi-finals. Providing that they do, you are all set to enjoy whatever your return would be. 

Golden boot

The Euro Championships are often full of immense goals and plenty of opportunities for ‘wonder strikes’, but the ultimate top scorer is always questionable. Some of the key players for this market include Ronaldo, Mbappe, Kane, and others. 

Outright winner

Fancy a shot at picking the eventual winner? The outright winner markets are always a solid choice, and you don’t always need to pick the favourites. You can pick your home country, of course, but you can also bet on some of the underdogs too. 

Euro Championships 2021 – Special Bets

Spread

Rather than just trying to pick and choose who will win what games, you can simply shoot for the spread markets on individual games. This where you can bet that a favoured team will win by a set amount of goals, but you may bet that the underdog will finish the game within a certain ‘spread’ of goals too. 

Player of the tournament

 

Winning the Golden Boot is one thing, but winning the ‘player of the tournament’ is another. Arguably, it is more prestigious than the Golden Boot award, as it shows the most consistent and indeed the best performances throughout the event. 

Most yellow cards

If there are some rather feisty and angry players involved in the Championships, which there always is, you can look into this speciality market. There will constantly be some hot-heads on the pitch in such a large tournament, and this can be quite an exciting market. 

To score a penalty

This is usually an in-play market, as the pre-match markets will often only give you a chance to bet on whether the game will go to penalties or not. However, when it comes down to it, you may then be able to bet on who will hold their nerve and score in a penalty shootout. 

Top 3 types of bets to choose

bet types

 

Winning margin 

When a top team goes up against a lesser team, you may want to look into the winning margin markets. This is where you can try and predict the exact winning margin, which can be tough, but there can be huge rewards for doing this successfully. 

Moneyline

Also referred to as a 1×2 market, this is where you can bet on a draw, a home win, or an away win. They are always presented as 1 – x – 2 in the sportsbook, hence the name of this bet. When a team goes up against a relative underdog, the odds may not be that favourable, but find teams that are evenly matched and you could find plenty of value. 

Score anytime

Specifically for individual games, you may want to bet on who will actually score in the game. You may choose to bet on a striker to score, an attacking midfielder, or if you want to play things a bit looser, you could go for a defender to score.
