Nations League Betting
Welcome to the home of Nations League betting! This is the place to bet on football during the Nations League, wager on in-play odds, and take advantage of special markets to boost your potential payouts.
Betting on Nations League games is different to placing wagers on club football or other international tournaments because these fixtures are designed to be competitive. The Nations League is a European tournament where countries of similar rank play each other. Promotion and relegation mean nations are split into groups, which results in there being fewer uneven games.
This is ideal for football betting fans who want to bet on Nations League games at good odds, because there are rarely heavy favourites.
Here at Bet UK, we offer extensive Nations League odds on every match of the tournament. This ranges from small games in League D all the way through to the final. And you can now bet on the likes of England, Germany, France and Italy across the whole 90 minutes via our live betting markets!

How Does The Nations League Work?
The Nations League is a European football tournament that covers two seasons, which aims to pitch countries of similar standards against each other. You might understandably be asking how does the Nations League work? Well, here’s a quick overview…
The Nations League is for European countries and is split into four League tiers: A, B, C and D. The highest-ranked teams are in League A, and the lowest-ranked in League D. The top three Leagues have four Groups (1, 2, 3 and 4) each consisting of four teams. Countries compete home and away against those in their Group, and whoever wins the Group is promoted to the above League, while Group losers are relegated to the League below.
At the end of the group stage, the four winners of the League A groups compete in a knockout to determine the Nations League champions.
England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all compete in the Nations League. The Home Nations groupings for 2022 are as follows:
England – Group A3 with Italy, Germany and Hungary
Wales – Group A4 with Belgium, Netherlands and Poland
Scotland – Group B1 with Ukraine, Republic of Ireland and Armenia
Northern Ireland – Group C2 with Greece, Kosovo and Cyprus
Securing Nations League promotion isn’t the only benefit to winning your group. That’s because the Nations League acts as an alternative qualification route for the World Cup and European Championships. This means countries such as Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland get a second chance to reach World Cups and Euros, should they fail in direct qualification. Therefore games can often take on even more significance!
UEFA Nations League Bets
The current Nations League kicks off in June 2022, with the final scheduled for 18 June 2023. Only teams in the League A groups can compete for a chance to play in the final.
For this reason, UEFA Nations League bets on who will win the tournament focus on the big boys in the competition: France, Spain, Belgium and England. Nations League group betting is a great way to get closer to the action and wager on genuinely competitive games. There may have only been two previous instalments of the Nations League but already we’ve witnessed more average shots per game than in the Premier League, and more goals per game than La Liga.
Many punters, therefore, wager on goals markets in these games, such as total goals, team totals and handicaps. Betting on group winners is also a popular choice due to the long-term nature of the wagers, and the likelihood that the football odds will rise and fall during the competition.
Yet the group stage isn’t the only time to wager on Nations League games. The Nations League Finals is a mini summer tournament where the four best teams battle it out for the championship – and these games are as intense as any World Cup or European Championship clash.
France and Portugal were the first two teams to win the Nations League. Whether we see them successfully defend their titles this season remains to be seen!

UEFA Nations League Bet Tips
When it comes to UEFA Nations League bet tips, it’s best to start small and steadily develop your game. The Nations League isn’t too different to any other type of football tournament in terms of bet options available. But the big difference is that the competition level is almost always high – thanks to the league system.
Here are some smart Nations League tips to consider when placing a bet…
Bet small to start – This is perfect advice for a newcomer to the Bet UK sportsbook. If you’re still figuring out how to bet on Nations League, then start with small bets on the basic markets, such as match winner and first goalscorer. Then you can begin placing bigger bets when you develop your knowledge of the process.
Loyalty means nothing – It’s always tempting to bet on England, Scotland or whoever your team is when it comes to the Nations League. But the best sports betting advice is always to follow your head, not your heart. So if you think England might lose a Group A game, then there’s no problem betting against them. If you just can’t stomach wagering against your team, it’s better to look for a different match to follow!
Explore the leagues – There are four different tiers in the UEFA Nations League and that means plenty of opportunities to watch and bet on different countries. Usually teams in League D struggle against the big boys, but here they can compete against those of a similar level. Still, it’s usually worth backing a few goals in League D, because most teams’ attacking units aren’t overly experienced in going forward.
The majority of football bets in the UEFA Nations League will focus on match results and goalscorers. But there is plenty of scope for profit when wagering on: total goals, half-time score, over/unders, handicaps and player specials. So make sure to check out the full list of Nations League odds before placing your bets!
Best Nations League Teams
There are scores of great teams across Europe but only the very best make it to League A. It’s in this top tier that teams are able to battle it our for a place in the Finals every two years. Winners of the four Nations League groups progress to the semi-finals every other summer – and the usual suspects are always floating top of the Nations League winner odds.
Here are some of the biggest hitters…
England Nations League
England are yet to win the Nations League but they’ve come close. They came third in 2019, beating Switzerland on penalties in the third-place playoff game. You can bet on every England Nations League game here at Bet UK and trigger some great player specials and bet boosts. We make sure to bring our punters the very best England football odds – and you can wager before kick-off and in-play during games.
You can also check up on the latest England Nations League fixtures and upcoming games from across the tournament right here in our sportsbook.
France Nations League Betting
France won the 2021 Nations League, beating Spain in the final 2-1. They are almost guaranteed to be in League A every year, and are usually a good bet to make the Finals. With some of the world’s best players in their squad, Les Bleus are usually well priced in the football betting odds.
Spain Nations League Betting
Having failed to make the 2019 Finals and lost the 2021 final against France, Spain are still waiting to taste glory in this tournament. But they are a fairly reliable team to finish first or second in their group. Spanish football is feared across the continent – and for punters, La Roja are always worth keeping an eye on.
Germany Nations League Betting
Live Nations League betting doesn’t get much bigger than following Germany. The team usually dominates opponents but in recent years they’ve laboured up front. It means Germany games are where you can bet on goals with confidence. If it looks like they’ll struggle up top, backing few goals is the way to go.
