The club football season is coming to a close and while there are exciting climaxes to look forward to in both domestic and continental competitions, betting sites and many punters are looking ahead to the Euro 2020 tournament.
Betting odds for the main markets have been available for two years, but lots has changed in that time and a number of teams have shortened in price while others have drifted as a result of poor performances over recent years.
England have made a habit of crashing out of international tournaments in disappointing fashion, and despite a 55-year trophy drought, the Three Lions are 5/1 favourites to win Euro 2020.
France are also 5/1 with various betting sites, and it’s no surprise that they are up there, given that their hugely talented squad managed to win the World Cup three years ago, and talisman Kylian Mbappe has continued his ascent towards the very top of the game.
Belgium are just a touch bigger at 6/1, and this could be their best chance ever to win a tournament with such a star-studded team.
Germany and Spain can both be backed at 7/1, while Portugal have come steaming into 8/1 having been 20/1 when the market opened.
Italy and the Netherlands must also be respected at 11/1 apiece.
Not only are England at the top of the betting to win the tournament, but their best striker leads the way in the Golden Boot market as well.
Harry Kane netted the most goals at the 2018 World Cup with his total of six, and with 33 goals in 53 appearances for club and country this term, there is no reason to believe he won’t go close again.
Kane’s biggest challengers according to many of the bookmakers on My Betting Sites are projected to be Romelu Lukaku (8/1), Mbappe (9/1), and Cristiano Ronaldo (9/1).
Outside of those four players, everyone else is priced at 20/1 or greater, and that includes Ciro Immobile, Antoine Griezmann, Memphis Depay, and Alvaro Morata.
Player of the Tournament
Unsurprisingly, you will find similar names at the top of this market as you do for the Golden Boot.
But one midfield player finds himself at the top of the list, and that is Kevin De Bruyne, who you can back at 9/1.
Besides the Belgian, only Mbappe is in single figures, with some other interesting options a bit further down in the form of Paul Pogba (25/1), Bruno Fernandes (33/1), and Phil Foden (33/1).
Young Player of the Tournament
Foden and his England teammate Jadon Sancho make up two of the three favourites in this market, with Matthijs de Ligt the other player at 5/1.
Joao Felix could represent value at 8/1 on a highly-rated Portugal side, while the Swede, Dejan Kulusevski, and Italy midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo are at the same odds.
Kai Havertz is the top German at 12/1, and it is perhaps surprising to see fellow Chelsea star, Mason Mount, as big as 20/1.
Winner/Top Goalscorer Double
This is a popular market among punters as the odds are big for any combination.
The favourites involve a player from the same team as the winner, but there are potentially appealing mix and match options such as France/Harry Kane at 50/1, Spain/Cristiano Ronaldo at 100/1, and Belgium/Kylian Mbappe at 80/1.
