Denmark Odds and Betting
Denmark Manager: Kasper Hjulmand
Denmark Captain: Simon Kjær
Denmark Star Player: Christian Eriksen
Denmark Competitions: World Cup, Euros and UEFA Nations League
In 1889, the Danish football team was established, going on to compete at the globe’s biggest tournaments with their participation in World Cups, European Championships and the Olympics.
Recent history has seen Denmark emerge as a promising nation with growing talent and a well-structured squad. Their successful run in the 2020 Euros asserted their intent on the international stage with a Semi-Final finish, which would have been their second European Championship title had they made it all the way.
Currently, Denmark has acquired a team that strikes a great balance between experience and promising talent. Players such as Eriksen and Schmeichel have collected years of experience playing in the Premier League and challenging in some of the greatest tournaments. Using their veteran status, they can support more youthful prospects as they look to become more ingrained in the international set-up.
Although they have developed more consistency in recent years, history shows that Denmark is not among the favoured nations to qualify for the major international tournaments. However, given that they are successful in the qualification bid, you will be able to find Denmark odds for the latest betting markets on Bet UK.
For upcoming friendly matches, you can find outright and in-play betting options. Their performances in recent tournaments have shown their discipline in defence. That said, odds for Denmark to keep a clean sheet could be a suitable selection for following games during international friendly matches and tournaments.
Denmark 2023/24 Betting
For the 2023/24 season, Denmark has already competed in the most elite tournament through the FIFA World Cup. The remainder of the season is less packed for international teams, with the only notable competition being the UEFA Nations League, which is set to be played over the course of the year.
One of the brightest sparks for Denmark in recent years has been the rise of their exciting prospects, along with talented veterans such as Eriksen and Schmeichel. In coming tournaments, younger players such as Mikkel Damsgaard are worth keeping an eye on, potentially becoming influential in key games.
Betting on Denmark in Euros
Denmark has had success in the European Championship, both in the past and recent seasons. In 1992, Denmark beat Germany to secure their one and only Euros title, and it was considered to be one of the greatest shocks, especially due to their qualification boiling down to the removal of Yugoslavia. More recently, Denmark mounted a challenge for the 2022 Euros, falling short in the Semi-Finals with a defeat to England.
In the run-up to the 2024 European Championship, you can find the latest Denmark football odds for the qualifying matches. With a consistent run of qualifying for major international events, Denmark’s odds of qualifying for the next tournament could be worth considering.
Betting on Denmark in FIFA World Cup
The 2022 Denmark World Cup campaign ended prematurely as they picked up just one point from group D. There is no doubt that this will have been slightly tough to take, given their promising challenge in the Euros.
Denmark’s qualification for the World Cup has been less successful than the Euro’s, only managing to qualify for six tournaments in their history. As the qualifying positions are contested by countries across the globe, it is a difficult tournament to make. There’s no saying whether or not Denmark will qualify for the 2026 World Cup in the United States, as a lot can change within their squad. Key players such as Manchester United player, Christian Eriksen, are not likely to feature, or it could be the case they play less due to their limited capacity to play in every match. Losing star players could be drastically influential on the outcomes of both their qualification for the World Cup and their success during the knockout stage.
Following Denmark's matches during friendlies and qualifying games can give you an indication of how they are performing, their approach to games and who the star players are likely to be.
As we build up to the World Cup finals, you can find outright and in-play markets for all of Denmark's qualifying World Cup matches. With their disciplined approach to games, this team will likely be hard to break down. Their attacking talents can offer goals, providing they find the confidence and offensive style to unlock some of the more resilient teams.
Betting on Denmark in UEFA Nations League
Having finished in 2nd place for the previous two UEFA Nations League groups, Denmark will hold their place in the top tier league of the competition. League A consists of some of the world’s greatest international teams, including; Croatia, France and Austria. With a 2nd place finish in the 2022/23 campaign, Denmark will not progress to the finals of the tournament, but they displayed a good effort by beating France to that position.
Denmark has maintained a strong level of performance at this level and future markets for the team in the UEFA Nations League could be worth browsing, depending on the group they eventually draw.

Denmark has been more consistent with their qualification for the Euros and World Cup in recent years, but you can also see that they failed to qualify for the 2016 Euros and 2018 World Cup.
Denmark Top Goalscorer Betting
Throughout the squad, Denmark has developed an experienced selection of forwards, all of which could be competing for the top scorer accolade within the squad. If you’re considering a bet for a Denmark player to make the top scorer in a tournament, Kasper Dolberg or Yussuf Poulsen are the most likely. Goals were not their strong point in the 2022 World Cup, so the odds will not favour Denmark's players.
Denmark Top Assister Betting
Creative talent flows throughout the Denmark international team, with plenty of candidates that could create assists. Christian Eriksen is likely to be top of that list, given his technical ability from open play and dead-ball situations. Younger players such as Mikkel Damsgaard will also be mentioned, bringing an attacking edge to Denmark’s play.
Denmark Yellow Cards Betting
There are a few names within the squad that play a defensive midfield role and are prone to collecting yellow cards. Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Thomas Delaney are the two players that top those odds. Of the two, Pierre-Emile is the more likely option due to his aggressive playing style and lack of discipline at moments.
