Euro 2020 Ukraine vs. Austria pick

Ukraine and Austria lock horns in Bucharest in their final group assignments in Group C on Monday and goals could be on the menu. Both sides will need to play on the offensive if they are to claim second spot or boost their chances of being one of the four best third-placed teams in the competition.

While Ukraine’s first two games featured a total of eight goals, Austria matches have produced six, suggesting that over 2.5 goals should be worth a bet. Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk have looked sharp in offense for Ukraine while the Austrians scored three times against North Macedonia in their first match, which was also played in Romania.

North Macedonia vs. Netherlands Euro 2020 pick

Netherlands booked their spot in the last 16 at Euro 2020 with a fairly solid performance against Austria and they should have no issues at home to tournament minnows North Macedonia in their third Group C game.

The Dutch can seal top spot in the pool with a win, having beaten Ukraine and Austria already, and even a shaken-up lineup should get the job done comfortably in this contest.

Georginio Wijnaldum has been superb in midfield, while Lyon’s Memphis Depay leads the Netherlands’ offense and highly rated center-back Matthijs de Ligt is back in their defense. The Dutch are simply the better side and backing them on the three-way (no push) spread at -1 goal looks a solid move.

Finland vs. Belgium Euro 2020 pick

Finland can still qualify for the Euro 2020 knockout stages, having beaten Denmark 1-0 before losing to Russia by the same scoreline, but getting the better of Belgium looks beyond the underdogs. The Finns are playing in their first ever major tournament and will be going up against a Belgium side blessed with the talents of Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard.

The Belgians carved through Russia 3-0 in their opener before beating a spirited Danish team 2-1 last time out and it is worth remembering this team scored 40 goals and let in only three during qualifying. Belgium should maintain a 100 per cent record at the tournament. Back the Red Devils to win by more than one goal on the three-way (no push) spread.

Russia vs. Denmark Euro 2020 pick

The challenging circumstances of Denmark’s opening game against Finland put the Danes on the back foot at Euro 2020 but they looked excellent in the first half of their encounter with Belgium, winning the shot count 21-6.

Playmaker Mathias Jensen, who plays for EPL newcomers Brentford, Barcelona’s Martin Braithwaite and Leipzig offensive talent Yussuf Poulsen offer quality in the final third and they should have enough about them to overpower Russia, which was thumped 3-0 by Belgium before edging out Finland 1-0.

Tournament winner, UEFA Euro 2020
Tournament winner Pick
Belgium
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

A good draw can be a massive help when it comes to winning knockout competitions and the Euro 2020 schedule looks favorable for Belgium, who could lift the trophy for the first time in their history.

The Belgians were in the tougher half of the draw at the 2018 World Cup and followed up a superb 3-2 success over Brazil in the quarter-finals with a 1-0 semi-final loss to France just four days later.

It could be argued that the delay to Euro 2020 has worked against the Belgians because key defenders Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen and influential attacker Dries Mertens are a year closer to the end of their careers.

But others like Kevin De Bruyne, Youri Tielemans, Thibaut Courtois, and Romelu Lukaku are in their prime and, while the squad may lack the depth of some others, the first 11 looks very strong.

The Belgians should boss Group B – at the expense of Denmark, Russia, and Finland – and finishing top of the group would avoid having to face either of the top two teams in Group F (by far the strongest section) in the round of 16 and the quarter-finals.

Tournament winner, UEFA Euro 2020
Tournament winner Pick
Poland
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

The European Championship soccer tournament has thrown up a few surprise winners in the fairly recent past with Denmark succeeding at Euro 1992 and Greece lifting the trophy at Euro 2004, and there is scope for some of the more unheralded nations to have a decent run this summer.

Poland’s run to the quarter-finalists five years ago was their best effort at a European Championship and they might fancy their chances of going even further this time.

Their talismanic captain, Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich, is one of a handful of truly world-class strikers at the tournament and could be the X-factor for the Poles, who have been drawn alongside Spain, Sweden and Slovakia in Group E. If you’re looking for a longshot to follow, Poland could be the big-value answer.

Group F winner, Euro 2020
Group F winner Pick
France to win
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

There is plenty to like about 2018 World Cup winners France, which plays effective rather than pretty football under Didier Deschamps. In Kylian Mbappe, Les Bleus possess the best young player in world football and the recall of rejuvenated Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema after six years away from the national team adds another dimension to their attack.

Their squad depth is unparalleled and midfield dynamo N’Golo Kante gives the team’s more creative players a license to express themselves. They are the team to beat. Joachim Low seems uncertain of his best Germany team and Hungary lacks the quality to make the most of home advantage, so France and Portugal look most likely progress from this section and France looks a great bet to win the group.

Group C winner, Euro 2020
Group C winner Pick
Ukraine top 2 finish
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

Even with top defender Virgil van Dijk sidelined throiugh injury, the Netherlands should have enough quality to progress from Group C as winners, but the other places are set to been keenly contested and Ukraine look the best bet to join the Dutch by taking second spot.

Viktor Tsygankov and Andriy Yarmolenko are dangerous wide players and though they struggled in a tough Nations League section, Andriy Shevchenko’s men showed plenty of maturity during qualifying for this tournament.

Top goalscorer, Euro 2020
Top goalscorer Pick
Romelu Lukaku
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

Romelu Lukaku is Belgium’s all-time leading goalscorer and the Red Devils’ star striker looks a strong candidate to top the scoring charts at Euro 2020. The powerful center-forward began his international career in 2010 but turned 28 only this year and is arguably at the peak of his powers, having scored 24 Serie A goals this season to help Inter Milan secure their first Scudetto in 11 years.

Lukaku averages better than a goal every two games at international level and has a great chance to impress this summer as the chief goal-getter for one of tournament favorites. Belgium scored the most goals in Euro 2020 qualifying with 40 in ten games and has the potential to get off to a high-scoring start this summer with Group B matches against Russia, Denmark and Finland.

Top goalscorer, Euro 2020
Top goalscorer Pick
Gerard Moreno
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

Spain’s Gerard Moreno is a player worth considering to be the Euro 2020 top scorer at big odds. The Villarreal striker is fighting with Alvaro Morata to start in attack for his nation, but he has had a superb season, scoring 23 La Liga goals, and could excel if given the opportunity.

Moreno is a killer from the penalty spot, too. He scored all 12 in normal time for Villarreal and then showed nerves of steel to slot home his spot-kick to help the Yellow Submarine overcome Manchester United in a shootout to settle the tied Europa League final.

Group D, Euro 2020
Group D Pick
Scotland to qualify
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

England is the standout team in Euro 2020 Group D and should finish top, and although the Croatia squad looks past its best, it would be no surprise to see them go through to the knockout stage in second place.

But the best bet could be to back Scotland to qualify, potentially as one of the best third-placed sides, given they will play key fixtures with Croatia and Czech Republic at their Hampden Park home.

Group A winner, Euro 2020
Group A winner Pick
Italy to win group
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

It is hard to see past Italy winning this section against Switzerland, Wales and Turkey. Italy last won the tournament in 1968 but there is cause for optimism in the Azzurri camp. The Italians have been in a state of transition since failing to even reach the World Cup finals tournament three years ago and under Roberto Mancini they managed to win all ten of their qualifying games for Euro 2020.

Blessed with a talented crop of midfielders from Jorginho and Marco Verratti to Nicolo Barella and Manuel Locatelli, they will be looking to make the most of home advantage in the group. They play all three of their group matches in Rome and look solid favorites.

Group E, Euro 2020
Group E Pick
Poland top 2 finish
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

Spain’s vulnerabilities are more likely to be exposed in the latter stages of Euro 2020 but they should top a soft section in Group E, but star striker Robert Lewandowski may be able to at least guide Poland out of the group in second place. A few injuries to key players could seriously hamper the chances of Sweden, who lack depth.

Poland could be outsiders to watch at Euro 2020 with Lewandowski, fresh from netting 48 goals in 40 games in all competitions for Bayern Munich in 2020-21, the focal point of their attack.

Creative outlet Piotr Zielinski and experienced defender Kamil Glik are also solid regulars, as are goalkeepers Lukasz Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny, and they will be hoping to build on their run to the quarter-finals at Euro 2016.

Group B winner, Euro 2020
Group B winner Pick
Belgium to win group
Odds
Bonus

Reasoning

Belgium does not have home advantage but they are the standout team in Group B and look a solid bet to finish top of the section, which is being played in Denmark and Russia.

Key forward Lukaku is coming off a superb domestic campaign with Inter Milan in Italy, while classy midfielder Youri Tielemans, who plays for Leicester City in the English Premier League, has matured since Belgium’s last major tournament.

Defensive pair Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are not getting any younger but under Roberto Martinez this remains a team to keep an eye on, not only in the group stage but in the tournament as a whole.

Now it’s finally here, check out the 24 Nations that will be fighting to lift the Henri Delaunay Trophy below.

Euro 2020 Top Goalscorer Predictions

Aside from trying to predict the winner of the tournament, the next most popular futures wager on Euro 2020 will be predicting the tournament’s Golden Boot winner, the player who scores the most goals. Antoine Griezmann scored the most in 2016 with 6 goals en route to the Final, which they ultimately lost to Portugal. Each of the last three winners of the European Championships’ Golden Boot Award has figured in the final, with those extra matches great opportunities to score more goals. Between 1996 and 2004 however the three winners in Alan Shearer, Patrick Kluivert, and Milan Baros never reached the Final with their respective nations, so it’s not always necessary if you can hit the ground running in the group stage. The Group Stages are where teams can have more favorable matchups, and it’s no surprise to see the likes of Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku with the best odds, with considerably easier groups, on paper, than some of their rivals. The experts at Pickswise will be breaking down the best spots and players for the Top Goalscorer market, including where to get the best odds, so be sure to check out our previews and predictions leading up to Euro 2020.

Euro 2020 Groups – Euro 2020 Group Winner Predictions 

Aside from the Outright tournament winner bets, the Group winner predictions are the next most popular type of future bet at Euro 2020. With 6 groups of four teams, you can wager on which nation will top each group at the end of the group stages. Some groups look easier to call than others, with the likes of Spain and England as short as -270 and -280 to win their respective groups. Group F looks to be the toughest with France +150 favorites, Germany at +165, and Portugal at +300 to win group F. Our experts will preview each of the 6 groups ahead of Euro 2020, and include our Group Stage Winner Predictions for each, be it a favorite as a lock or a potential upset.

Euro 2020 Player Of The Tournament Predictions

The Player of the Tournament Award is another popular player’s future bet for Euro 2020. While it would be obvious to think the top goalscorer is surely the best player in the tournament, it is often deliberately given to someone else. In 2016 Antoine Griezmann did in fact win both the Golden Boot and Player of the Tournament, but that was a first since the awards’ inception in 1996. Prior to Griezmann, 5 midfielders had won the award, so this would likely be the safest place to look in your research. With the likes of Xavi, Iniesta, and Zidane all previous winners, think playmaker, those that pull the strings in the middle. Our experts will be running through all of the key contenders for Euro 2020 player of the tournament including even more trends, stats, and odds, so be sure to check out our Euro 2020 player of the tournament predictions.

Euro 2020 Odds

The current Euro 2020 Odds have France as the favorites to win the tournament. The French National Team fell at the final hurdle in 2016, losing in the final, on home soil, to Portugal, but are favored to right that wrong with the best odds of +500 to win Euro 2020. The second favorites are currently England at +550, followed by Belgium at +600, the reigning Champions Portugal at +800, and both Germany and Spain at +900. The nation with the worst Euro 2020 Odds is North Macedonia, who are ranked 62nd in the world and playing in the UEFA European Championships for the first time, with odds of +50000.

UEFA Euro 2020 FAQs

Euro 2020, despite its name, is being played between June 11th and July 11th, 2021. The tournament was originally scheduled to take place in the Summer of 2020 as part of the Euros’ four-year cycle, but like many other sports, it was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Final of Euro 2020 is scheduled to take place at 3 p.m. ET on July 11th, 2021. The final match of 51 total tournament games, with European Championship glory on the line.

The first game of the Euro 2020 tournament is set to kick off at 3 p.m ET on Friday 11th July 2021. The match will be between Turkey and Italy, with the Italians strong favorites to get their tournament off to a winning start.

The UEFA Euro 2020 tournament is being played in multiple locations across Europe. Typically the tournament is hosted by one nation, but the 2020 tournament will be played across Europe in multiple cities. Originally there were 13 host cities named by UEFA, but since then both Brussels and Dublin have been dropped as host sites, leaving 11 cities.

Those cities are London, Rome, Munich, Baku, Saint Petersburg, Budapest, Seville, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Glasgow, and Copenhagen.

The Euro 2020 Final along with the Euro 2020 Semi-Final matches will be played at Wembley Stadium, London. Wembley Stadium is the largest of the 11 host stadiums across the Euro 2020 tournament with a maximum capacity of 90,000. It is unclear, how many spectators will be allowed to attend the final, with only 25% scheduled to attend the Group Stage matches at Wembley Stadium, but UEFA remains optimistic a larger crowd will be in attendance for the final.

The date of the Euro 2020 Final is Sunday, July 11th, 2021 with the kick-off set for 3 p.m. ET. This is exactly one month, or 30 days from the start of the tournament which begins on June 11th, 2021.

The current favorite to win the Euro 2020 tournament is France. France has the best odds of the 24-teams competing at +500. The second-best odds in the tournament are with England at +550, with Belgium coming in third at odds of +600. North Macedonia has the worst odds in the Euro 2020 tournament at +50000. 

Euro 2020 is being played in 2021 due to the disruption caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Many of the domestic leagues were disrupted across Europe in 2020, causing a late end to their seasons and leaving no time to play the international tournament during the summer as planned. UEFA made the decision to keep the tournament name as Euro 2020 despite being played in 2021, largely due to commercial complications and for marketing purposes.
