- France (7-2) now have the best odds to win Euro 2020 after winning the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
- Germany (11-2) and Spain (7-1) have seen their odds get worse following a disappointing World Cup tournament.
- Belgium have moved from 11-1 to 7-1 after an impressive third-place finish at the World Cup.
The 2020 European Football Championship, also known as Euro 2020, will be hosted by 12 different cities in 12 different countries, starting on June 12, 2020.
All 55 UEFA national teams qualify for the preliminary stage, and the main tournament will feature the top 24 squads.
The semifinal and final will be played at Wembley Stadium in London, England. Portugal are the defending champions from 2016 after beating France in the final in extra time.
Here’s a look at how odds from Skybet have shifted following the 2018 World Cup.
The World Cup champions are the favorites to win Euro 2020, and their odds improved from 9-2 to 7-2 following the trophy run.
Germany were the 4-1 favorites before the World Cup kicked off, but a very disappointing tournament lifted their odds to 11-2.
Spain had high hopes at the 2018 World Cup but were knocked out by hosts Russia in the Round of 16. It probably didn’t help that their manager was fired just days before they played their first group match, and they’ll be looking for stability over the next few years to lead another solid, talented roster. Their odds increased from 11-2 to 7-1 to win Euro 2020.
Belgium’s “golden generation” performed very well at the 2018 World Cup and likely would have reached the final if not for being on the tougher side of the knockout bracket. In 2020, the core of the team will still be there, and they’ll be a trendy pick to win it all.
England reached the World Cup semifinal, which was deemed a huge success for the country. As a result, their odds improved from 10-1 to 8-1 to win Euro 2020.
