June 2021 - Latest Sports Betting News
June sees the beginning of the Euro 2020 football tournament, delayed from last summer, but now taking place this year, the decision was made by UEFA to retain the 'Euro 2020' moniker. We'll have previews of the major England matches and the tournament outright.
Euro 2020 Tournament
Euro 2020 runs from 11th June until 11th July and takes place in 12 venues across Europe. This is the first time that the Euro's have been held across several venues. England are amongst the favourites for the tournament and with a strong attacking lineup, the pressure is on Gareth Southgate to deliver a good tournament for England.
Two other home nations also qualified, with Wales and Scotland giving a great interest for fans of the home nations sides. England and Scotland have been drawn in the same group, which means the rivalry can resume from Euro 96, which is the last time Scotland qualifed for the Euro's.
The outright odds for Euro 2020 are as follows:
Euro 2020 Winner Odds
France 5/1 (Paddy Power)
England 5/1 (Bet365)
Germany 8/1 (Paddy Power)

France and England start as joint favourites at 5/1, Belgium the second favourites at 6/1.
This seems like a fair assessment by the bookies, with many teams having a chance of winning the tournament. France have proven themselves very adept at winning tournaments in recent years and look very strong again in all departments. England have a great lineup of attackers, but still look a little fragile defensively.
Portugal at 10/1 really do make some appeal, they have a strong squad and won the last tournament in Euro 2016. Of the bigger prices, Croatia got to the world cup final in 2018 so could surprise a few people at odds of 33/1 and definitely could be worth an each-way punt.
If you fancy backing Wales then you can get a whopping 200/1 at Bet365, with Scotland being even bigger at 250/1 at Bet365. Neither are expected to go deep into the tournament, but both have realistic chances of getting out of the group stages.
