The group stage of Euro 2021 is now in the books, and with more than half of the tournament matches played, we now have a very good idea of which teams are playing at tournament level. This is good news for bettors looking to take advantage of the quality odds ahead of the round of 16. However, as we advance to the knockout stages, things can get a little tricky. Even the best aspects have no room for error. If a team has a bad day, they can mark the end of their career in the European Championship. In addition, one side of the arc is much more difficult than the other, which pits several candidates in the tournament against each other. In fact, all of our five recommended pre-tournament picks fell on the same side of the arc with four touchdowns in the same quarter, and as such, it would be very difficult for bookies to block that section, while the weaker side of the arc will set up chances to bet. On people who sleep well: Which teams can you trust as Euro 2021 progresses to the knockout stages? Here’s a look at the tournament’s updated odds and the best bets to make as we get closer to being crowned champion. to win the euro. The 2018 World Cup champions survived the famous “group of death” by beating Germany and drawing against Portugal and Hungary’s junior team. Scoring wasn’t there for the French in their first two matches, but Karim Benzema may have scored twice after scoring twice against Portugal, and Italy (+600) has made a huge leap in the standings since the start of the tournament. The Italians are in great shape and their odds are reduced from 8-1 to 6-1 after sweeping through the first set. They have outperformed their rivals 7-0 in the Euros so far and have not allowed a goal in their last 10 matches. Matches: The winners are England (+650), Germany (+700), Spain (+700) and the Netherlands (+900). Meanwhile, Belgium (+1000) and Portugal (+1400) saw their longest odds ahead of the match between the two teams in the Round of 16. Austria (+15000) has the longest odds remaining in the tournament. They will have to pass Italy and the winner of the Belgium-Portugal match to reach the semi-finals. There, they will wait for a possible date with France. Odds Team France +420 Italy +600 England +650 Germany +700 Spain +700 Netherlands +900 Belgium +1000 Portugal +1400 Denmark +2000 Sweden +5000 Croatia +6000 Czech Republic +10000 Switzerland +10000 Wales +10000 Ukraine +12500 Austria +15000 Euro 2021 Experts choose the best bets to win Euro 2021 France (+420). No surprises here. Les Bleus is still one of the top picks for winning the Euro. Their shape in the group of death wasn’t great, but they managed to escape with five points and win the group. Now, their path to the final is a little easier – at least to start the knockout stages, France is on the more difficult side of the arc, but its quadruple is the easier of the two. The French will face Switzerland off the bat and then they will face the winner of Croatia’s match against Spain. Neither team has been particularly impressive, so France should have a good chance of reaching the semi-finals, and from there, France will have to beat Belgium, Portugal, Italy or Austria, but the French have the winning ratios and depth to make it happen. is over. France’s prospects have barely changed since the start of the tournament, and with good reason. They are a solid team with some holes. If Benzema can stay hot while Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann can move on, then France should have a good chance of reaching the tournament final. At a minimum, they must survive until the semi-finals. Germany (+700). Joachim Law’s team was very fortunate to pass the group of death. The Germans almost lost to Hungary and faced disqualification, but instead managed to escape in second place. Their round of 16 match against England will not be easy, but there are not many real contenders in this aspect. In fact, the winner of Germany vs England should reach the final based on their team’s market value. Germany didn’t consistently advance in Group F play, but the team crushed Portugal 4-2 and captured more. The ball is in a 1-0 loss to France. Confidence that the Germans will perform as they did against Portugal is a risk, but in the case of a 7-1 probability, it is worth the risk. It’s Low’s last tournament, and players should be excited to play well with their longtime coach. If you are less daring, pick Germany for second place (+300) or finish the top four (+160) are also strong bets.

No team is more motivated to win Euro 2021 than Denmark. Christian Eriksen’s collapse on the field stunned the Danish side, but the accident and Eriksen’s survival motivated the team to win in his honor, and the team managed to reach the round of 16 despite losing to Finland and Belgium in their first two matches. of team play. Now, the Danes will have a chance to make a strong spin since they land on the weaker side of the arc, and to get to the final, Denmark will face some stiff competition and could face the Netherlands and either England or Germany. Nor will they play in Copenhagen as they did in their three group stage matches, Denmark is unlikely to win, but with a 20-1 lead, they are an unsuitable choice. And just like with Germany, if you want a higher probability bet, you can take Denmark to finish the top two (+500) or finish the top four (+160) in the tournament. Cristiano Ronaldo in Euros do not buy the hype Italy (+600). Look, this Italian team is very good. They have not lost in 30 matches and eliminated the last 10 opponents, but all winning streaks end at some point, and Italy faces a particularly tough slice in the round of 16. Her opening match against Austria may not look so difficult. But the Austrians have countless German Bundesliga players on their squad and could prove the test more difficult than expected, and then Italy faces the winner from Belgium against Portugal, a very tough test for the Azzurri, and I’m likely to get a date with France if I qualified for the semi-finals, so can Italy beat these three teams? If they played as they played against Group A competition, then yes, but it is worth noting that Italy’s Group A counterparts Wales, Switzerland and Turkey were not among the world winners. And they didn’t test too much for 22-year-old Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, so could Italy win this tournament? Sure, they can. But should you bet them with 6-1 chances to do so? Perhaps they did not give the draw for the round of 16, the 16th round beat the Czech Republic (+220) to advance over the Netherlands. The Netherlands has yet to lose in the Euros, winning all three of their matches in Group C with a score of 8-2. They are also on the weaker side of the arc, so some might think they can go to the final if all goes well, sure, if Memphis Depay continues to play well, the team will have a chance to do so. However, under coach Frank de Boer, the Netherlands simply did not put in a consistent performance and they were liable to beat the lagging lead. They almost did in their first game against Ukraine before Denzel Dumfries saved them in the 85th minute from a surprise equalizer, the Czech Republic may not look like a difficult draw on paper, but the Czechs beat Scotland and drew with England. To win with only one goal. If they can prevent the Dutch from scoring early, the Czech Republic could have a chance to win again, or move the match into overtime. So why not risk them for a special surprise?

This game should be exciting to watch, but it won’t be fun to bet. These two teams are very talented. Belgium has a lot of depth of “golden generation”. Meanwhile, Portugal has Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the greatest players of his generation, and a solid group around him, who can defend a win for either side. At the moment, the odds makers would prefer to go ahead in Belgium, but that’s not so much. So, betting on any team in this game is not attractive. There is justification to bet on Belgium to win the European Championship 2021 by 10-1 or go with Portugal 14-1 because the odds for each team can be long since the start of the tournament. However, neither of them guarantees victory in the Round of 16, and even if they do win, they will likely face Italy and France in each of their next two matches, and there is plenty of uncertainty with Belgium and Portugal to make a confident bet. . Better to venture into a match like France, Switzerland and Germany against England or the Czech Republic and the Netherlands, just allow yourself to enjoy a marquee match in the Round of 16.
