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 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.

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 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.

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.
