With the best football bookmakers already carrying odds on the outright winner of the UEFA Euro 2020, the one thing we can be certain of is that you will need an online betting account before you can start placing wagers.
Looking ahead to the tournament, once you hold an online betting account, you’re then ready to start placing bets on Euro 2020 and there will be opportunities to back a result in an individual match, pick the various group stage winners/runners up as well as enter the market for the top-scoring Golden Boot winner while also taking advantage of the many accumulator options on offer.
The main qualifying process began in March 2019 and will end in November 2019. The qualifiers will be played on double matchdays in March, June, September, October and November 2019. There are five groups of five teams and five groups of six teams, with the four UEFA Nations League Finals participants guaranteed to be drawn into groups of five teams.
The top two teams in each of the 10 groups qualify for Euro 2020, where they will then be drawn into six groups of four teams. The top two teams in each group will be joined by the four best third-placed teams in the last 16, from which point the tournament will become a straight knockout affair with extra time and penalties to decide the winners should a match be drawn after 90 minutes.
Whenever the UEFA European Championships come around, many betting customers like to try and predict who will eventually be crowned champions. As Euro 2020 approaches, the same major nations will be hoping for success and, with the outright winner betting market tending to be very competitive, bettors will be able to get a tempting price for any team to triumph once the tournament ends.
For many punters, the first step in identifying a winner is to create a shortlist of teams that they think can win Euro 2020, with current holders Portugal joining recent winners Spain and Germany among the favourites.
Other nations such as Belgium, England and Netherlands are certainly worthy of consideration and once you have narrowed down your search for a winner, you can then decide which Euro 2020 team appeals the most at the current prices.
Yes, In-Play betting is an option with many football fans now waiting for a match to kick off before placing bets on the action. This gives punters the advantage of able to gauge the pattern of play and whether a particular side is dominating the match before deciding which way to bet.
Every bookmaker will offer In-Play betting on UEFA Euro 2020 and many of the markets on offer are the same as you’ll find before kick-off. The 1 X 2 market will be available until one team goes a few goals ahead, while you can also expect to find markets such as Next Team to Score, Over / Under Cards, Over / Under Goals and Next Player to Score.
Top Scorer Market I One thing we have seen in recent editions of this tournament is that a player’s chances of scoring the most goals in the European Championships depend on their respective nation going deep into the competitions latter stages. With that in mind, looking at the frontmen of the team or teams you expect to go far is a good place to start, before then taking time to understand which strikers are most likely to play regularly for the leading nations. After analysing their respective paths to the final or at least latter stages, that additional information should help to pick a potential Golden Boot winner for Euro 2020.
First Scorer I One of the most popular football betting options is the 'first scorer' market, where a prospective punter can place a bet on the team and the individual player he thinks is going to score first in the match. The odds are better for the 'first scorer' market at Euro 2020 because there is a chance that anyone of 22 players or even a substitute could be the first to score.
Half Time/Full Time I Another popular football betting market is the 'half-time/full-time' market, where you can place money on one team being ahead at half time and the other at full time, or vice versa. Alternatively, the backer can gamble that one team will be ahead at both half and full time, or that it will be a draw at half-time and one of the teams will go on to win at full-time. Lastly, the punter can bet that the score will be a draw both midway through and at the end of the game. If you have an idea that one side might jump out to an early lead, this is definitely an option to consider and is a good way to find value in a particular fixture.
Both Teams to Score I This is a particularly useful option given that just 24 teams will be taking part in Euro 2020. That is likely to see some very tight matches, but a knowledge of the defensive records of the two teams involved in a particular game will allow a punter to make an informed decision on the “both teams to score” market. If a team has a good attack but a porous defence, it is a solid option to back “yes” in this market, while a stout defensive team going up against a poor attack is the time to opt for “no.”
