The Euro begins this Friday with the clash between Italy and Turkey in Rome (9 p.m.) and will end on July 11 at Wembley. Find out which nation is given the favorite on the betting sites and if Karim Benzema’s top scorer odds are worth giving it a shot.
Postponed for a year due to the coronavirus epidemic, the Euro finally begins this Friday with an attractive opening match between Italy and Turkey in front of 15,000 spectators at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. The opportunity to attend a nice duel between two contenders for the final victory in the tournament… or rather two outsiders for the title at Wembley, on July 11th.
At Winamax, the coronation of Italy is thus quoted at 9, when a first continental victory for Burak Yilmaz and Zeki Celik would allow punters to win 75 times their stake. An odds quite far from those of the favorites for the final victory.
A trio stand out for the victory
World champion in 2018, the France team dreams of a fantastic double like the 1998-2000 generation. The presence of Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé and other Karim Benzema or N’Golo Kanté among the 26 of Didier Deschamps seems to have accentuated the status of favorite of the Blues. With an odds of 6, France is given the winner in this Euro. But beware of overconfidence.

For those who would prefer to bet on another selection than the Blues (yes, there is), the two other favorites of the bookmakers are England and… Belgium, respectively listed at 7 and 7.50. Will the golden generation of the Red Devils finally win something? Not sure.
Behind a terrifying quartet acts as a scarecrow and have the same chances of winning according to Winamax with an odds of 9: Germany, Spain, Italy and Portugal. For the more greedy who would like to bet a selection month in sight, the Netherlands can make 15 times the stake and the Croatian vice-world champions are quoted at 40.

Mbappé on the goalscorers podium
Failing to choose a winner among all the contenders for the final victory, the nice shot of the punters could come from the top scorer. Here again, the favorites will not surprise anyone. Premier League top scorer this season with 23 goals, Harry Kane could take advantage of the Euro to further increase his value before a transfer during the summer transfer window.
Already top scorer at the 2018 World Cup, the Englishman has the lowest odds for the continental tournament (7 at Winamax). Impressive with Inter, Romelu Lukaku climbs to second position with an odds of 8. The French Kylian Mbappé completes the podium with an odds of 10 and ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo (14) and the duo Benzema-Depay (17). Number 1 penalty taker for the Blues, Antoine Griezmann is only listed at 25.

The odds of madness
And for the more daring (or the craziest, it depends) who prefer to play improbable but very profitable odds, here are some crazy bets to try during this Euro. As for the winners, four nations would make it possible to win 500 times the stake: Finland, Hungary, North Macedonia and Slovakia. If Leicester won the Premier League, why can’t one of its four teams put its name on the Euro charts …
As for the scorers, Kingsley Coman has the biggest odds (110 at Winamax) but for those looking for a lesser known name they can try their luck with the Austrian from Stuttgart Sasa Kalajdzic or the Ukrainian from La Gantoise Roman Yaremchuk (all both rated at 100 at Winamax). Finally, special mention to punters ready to bet on a combined winner North Macedonia and Goran Pandev top scorer of the Euro whose odds still reach 3700.
