Betvictor Euro 2016 odds11th June 2016 / lee
Who wins Euro 2016? Will Spain’s slightly longer domestic season trip them up? Will England be fresh enough to run all the way? Is there anyone likely to stop either France or Germany from winning the title. So many questions will be answered very soon with the start of Euro 2016 on the very near horizon. How will it all pan out? Will punters be cashing in on Betvictor Euro 2016 odds of 3/1 on the host nation France to land the title?
Will there be someone coming in from double figures in the ante post market to steal the limelight? Think of Greece in 2004 or Denmark in 1992. There have been upsets in the tournament, more so than ever usually happens at the World Cup? So will there be an underdog coming through the pack? If you are looking at Betvictor Euro 2016 odds to pick out such an underdog story, then you have to kick France, Germany, Spain and England out of the picture as they are all under double figures for the title.
Leading the chasing pack to the big four then at Euro 2016 are Belgium at a price of 11/1. The Red Devils have a tremendously talented squad. Think Eden Hazard, Thomas Vermaelen, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Thibaut Courtois, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Mousa Dembele to just scratch the surface of the talent that they have in their squad. If it can all come together for them at Euro 2016 then they could be great value to win the whole thing. Their qualification process was relatively trouble figure, only Wales really offering opposition to them, the Belgians earning just the one point from the two meetings.
So Belgium go off at a shorter price than Antonio Conte’s Italy who are 16/1 in Betvictor Euro 2016 odds. Not a bad each way punt you would assume on the runner up from four years ago. But Italy look as if they will have trouble putting the ball in the back of the net frequently enough to really challenge. Of course, that’s not particularly Italy’s way, because they work hard, stay organised and aren’t bothered about scrapping out those 1-0 wins. But if it came down to picking either Belgium or Italy to really go the distance you have opposing sides of the coin.
Italy will take their pragmatic approach to the party, while Belgium will probably play with a bit more flair and attacking intent. Usually in a tight scrap you would probably back Italy to grind their way through things and this is a reason why their backers would stick with them. Italy can edge their way through contests and this will be put to the test in the group stage when they take on Sweden, Ireland and Italy. So yes, Italy and Belgium will go head to head in the very first stage. The great thing about it, is that they will meet on June 13th, the first match for both.
Belgium are 6/4 to take the win, with Italy and the draw at 2/1 in Betvictor Euro 2016 odds. That’s how tight, despite approaching the game from different angles, that this is likely to be. The winner of that group will face the runner up of Group D in the round of sixteen (Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey and Croatia) while the runner up from the Belgium/Italy group will likely have to play either Portugal or Austria (winner of Group F) in the first knockout round. So with Spain likely to win Group D, whoever comes out on top between Belgium and Italy will get the easier game to kick off the knockouts.
Tellingly perhaps, back in November last year the two met in a friendly and Belgium won that easily 3-1. During their Euro 2016 warm ups, Italy suffered a loss against Germany and were held to draws by Spain and Romania. So they aren’t one for consistency and they they edged three of their last four qualifying group stage wins by single goal margins. That is the narrow margins, the grinding that we spoke about for Italy. But hey are beatable and the Red Devils at a quote of 15/13 to top Group E, probably look the better value.
Then you have of course Betvictor Euro 2016 Top Scorer market where Belgian players could have a heavy influence. Romelu Lukaku is a 16/1 shot to win the Golden Boot at the tournament, while Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard are 33/1 shots which makes them decent each way value to produce something. Christian Benteke, after his difficult season with Liverpool is a price of 40/1 in the Betvictor Euro 2016 Top Scorer market with club team mater Divock Origi at 50/1.
