European Championship Betting

The Euros will return in June 2024, with the tournament set to be hosted in Germany. The 2020 Championships had all the drama, with Italy making a comeback to defeat England in the final, preventing them from securing their first major international trophy since their World Cup victory in 1966. 

You can bet on all the European action with Bet UK providing you with the latest betting odds from the first kick until the final whistle.

Euro 2024 winner odds

Italy currently holds the crown, having pipped England to the trophy in a dramatic penalty shoot-out. Euro 2024 will be again filled with action as Europe’s biggest nations push for one of the world’s major international football competitions.

As teams find their form in international friendlies and new talent makes their mark on the big stage, the odds for the Euro 2024 winner will fluctuate. Be sure to watch for the latest odds across the markets to find the best selections ahead of the tournament and throughout. 

Euro 2024 Qualifying Betting

Germany are the only team guaranteed to perform at 2024 as hosts, the remaining teams in the tournament have to qualify for the event. The top two teams in each group will qualify for the tournament, as qualifiers contain 10 groups, seven groups of five teams and three groups of six teams. The pots for team selection are based on UEFA Nations League positions and rankings, 12 nations are guaranteed at least a spot in the playoffs due to their Nations League performance. When betting on qualifying the best betting market is that of the group winner betting market.

These are the teams who we believe we qualify from each group.

Group A:

In a group with Scotland, Georgia, Norway and Cyprus, you won't find many that bet against Spain for Euro 2024 qualifying. However, a surprise loss to Scotland means that the Scots have the advantage in regards to winning the group.

Value for money may be in the Scotland bet. However, they would likely have to pick up maximum points against Erling Haaland's Norway to win the group. If you don't think that is the like option. Spain to win the group and Scotland to qualify are where we can see value.

Group B:

Group B is a lot simpler than Group A. France are a powerhouse and should comfortably win their group. Netherlands should have enough in their locker to overcome an improved Republic of Ireland and Greece.

Group C:

This should be one of the most one-sided groups in the tournament, England and Italy should both safely qualify. However, the question remains as to whether Ukraine can cause either team any problems. We think England will win the group and Italy will qualify in second.

Group D:

Perhaps the hardest group at in qualifying to judge. Two of Croatia, Turkey or Wales will qualify. Unfortunately, the retirement of Gareth Bale will hit Wales hard, we believe Croatia will win the group with Turkey finishing second.

Group E:

You wonder how last tournament's finalists England and Italy end up in the same group when you see Group E. Czech Republic and Poland will receive virtually no competition from Moldova, Faroe Islands and Albania. We may see one or two shock results but ultimately, the Czech's and Poland will progress but we believe Poland will win the group.**

Group F:

Group F is an interesting group with a declining Belgium sitting with Austria and Sweden. Belgium still have significantly more quality than both teams but anything can happen! We do believe that Belgium will come out victorious and we believe Sweden will finish above Austria to end in second place.

Group G:

Group G is another where you wonder how Netherlands and France ended up in the same group. However, it is a fantastic opportunity for Serbia, Hungary, Montenegro, Bulgaria or Lithuania to qualify for the next stage. Serbia should dominate the group given their prowess. However, Hungary's astonishing performance in the UEFA Nations League gives the indication that they are ready to qualify in second.

Group H:

The first of the six man groups sees a group where Denmark should dominate. We believe that Slovenia will comfortably finish in second place but could face stiff competition from Kazakhstan.

Group I:

Switzerland consistently qualify for competitions such as the European Championships with ease and we can't see Group I giving them any problems this time out. Switzerland to win and Romania to finish second

Group J:

Portugal sit in a group with a number of teams they will be expected to beat. Slovakia and Bosnia may prove to be difficult to beat but we believe that Portugal will win the group with ease and Slovakia will comfortably finish in second ahead of Bosnia and Iceland.

The Portuguese forward no longer has time on his side, with Ronaldo past his peak years. Euro 2020 could have been his final major international tournament, but when it comes to Cristiano Ronaldo, you can never write him off. 

A potential decline for Portugal’s star player could also pave the way for the exciting prospects that Europe is currently showcasing.

As part of the Euro finals, teams will be split into six groups of four with the top two teams going through to the round of 16.
