Almost every single sports betting site out there is going to be running Euro 2020 bets, including the unlicensed and unsavory ones. It’s no surprise that some punters can find the sheer amount of choice confusing or overwhelming. It can be difficult to know who you can trust with your wagers, which is why we narrowed it down for you. Our picks for the best 3 Euro 2020 betting sites are bet365, 888sport, and SportNation. To make things even easier for you, we’ve even went to the trouble of grabbing all their outright odds* for you.
As seasoned bettors already know, England and Italy are often assigned odds that may or may not have anything to do with their actual statistical likelihood to win. England, in particular, tends to be given outright odds that are widely inflated. Though, who knows? This might be the year that England brings home a win.

*Odds are correct at the time of writing.
So far, England supporters certainly have a lot to be happy about when it comes to top scorers. England is the only team to have two members listed in the 10 Top Scorers list so far, with the legendary Harry Kane nabbing the top spot. Hot on his heels, to no surprise, is Cristiano Ronaldo.
Betting sites have already begun to offer a whole host of pre-tournament bets for the 2020 European Championship, which could be a great opportunity for eagle-eyed punters out there to get their engines revving. From outrights, to top goalscorer, and much more, there’s plenty of Euro 2020 betting opportunities available even now. Here are some of our top picks:
|Harry Kane||6.00 (5/1)||6.50 (5.5/1)|
|Cristiano Ronaldo||8.00 (7/1)||9.00 (8/1)|
|France||3.75 (2.75/1)||3.75 (2.75/1)|
|England||3.75 (2.75/1)||3.75 (2.75/1)|
|England||1.40 (0.4/1)||1.40 (0.4/1)|
|Croatia||3.75 (2.75/1)||4.00 (3/1)|
The final team won’t be confirmed until closer to the start of the group stage, but we have our own predictions for who could end up in those 24 spots. Considering England are in the same group as Croatia, who knocked them out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, we’re more than likely to see a few changes between that roster and this one.
Bettors take note: you’re going to want to pay very close attention to the roster, and with some bookies, even place bets on who will end up on the roster.
We’re all still waiting for the final roster to be announced, but based off the qualifiers and recent events, we can make some pretty educated guesses about who is likely to end up on the national team for the 2020 European Championship.
For starters, while Harry Kane has been out with a hamstring injury since New Year’s, he’s predicted to be back on the field by April, making it virtually impossible for him to not end up on the team this year. As the current top scorer and the winner of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Golden Boot, it’s a pretty safe bet that he’ll be representing England this summer.
As far as goalkeepers go, Jordan Pickford, who plays for Everton, was a favourite pick before this season started. However, with 41 conceded goals over the Premier League, he’s now a lot less likely to make the final cut. Dean Henderson, currently with Sheffield United, could end up taking Pickford’s spot. Henderson only conceded 22 goals across the Premier League, and with Southgate’s soft spot for young players, Henderson could very well end up representing the nation. Then again, we may see both of them on the team, though we still think it’s unlikely that Pickford will take the number 1 spot.
Raheem Sterling is all but guaranteed to be part of the team. The Manchester City forward – left winger is has made massive improvements over the last 18 months, even making it to the top scorer list for the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Southampton FC’s Danni Ings is extremely likely to end up making the team, having scored 15 goals in the Premiere League. Tammy Abraham, currently signed on with Chelsea FC, isn’t too far behind with 13 Premier League goals.
🏴 Predicted England 2020 Team
|Joe Gomez||Jordan Henderson|
|Ben Chilwell||Jordan Sancho|
Another possible outlier, which very few saw coming, is Bukayo Saka. At only 18, he could be a very risky choice, though his performance with Arsenal this season has been nothing short of spectacular. While we don’t think this is likely enough to make our list, we do think this one deserves an honorable mention.
Punters in the UK are unlikely to find many Euro 2020 matches streamed on betting sites. Thanks to licensing agreements with the BBC and ITV, though, the vast majority of matches are still available to watch without any expensive or premium cable subscriptions.
From the Group Stage onwards, every match is either available on BBC One, ITV, ITV 4, or the BBC’s online channel, BBC Four. This means that punters who want to feel the adrenaline pumping with a bit of live Euro 2020 betting can still watch along while building their betting slips.
If you’re hoping to watch the Play Off stage, though, then you’ll either need a Sky Sports or a NowTV subscription. Sky Sports are airing all the play off matches, though NowTV are a little more limited here.
UEFA decided to expand the number of participating countries in the 2020 European Championships to 24 teams, likely due to this being the 60th anniversary of the tournament. 55 different teams competed in the qualifiers between March and November 2019, each of them vying for one of the coveted 24 positions. 20 teams qualified at the end of the qualifiers, with 16 more teams set to compete for the 4 remaining spots.
The 20 teams who have qualified so far, in alphabetical order, are:
Once the 24 qualified teams have been decided, the Group Stage begins. The 24 teams are sorted into 6 groups (A-F), with each group consisting of four teams. Teams will play against each other team in their group, meaning each team will play 3 matches in the group stage.
The group stage’s 36 matches take place between the 12th and 24th of June, with several matches happening each day.
Of the 24 teams entering the Group Stage, only 16 will advance to the Knockout phase. The top-2 teams from each group, as well as the best 4 teams who land in third place in their group. This means that 8 teams will be knocked out at this stage.
The Euro 2020 Group Stage alone is going to provide punters with an amazing amount of betting opportunities in mid-June, and punters should start getting their strategies ready from now. This will also be a great time for bettors to pay close attention, as what happens in the group stage can end up forming your betting strategy in the knockout phase.

As you can see above, the European Championships Final will be hosted at the iconic Wembley Stadium. Known as “The Home of Football”, the Wembley Stadium is one of the most recognizable stadiums in the world. While it isn’t the original stadium that hosted the 1966 FIFA World Cup final, the new and improved Wembley Stadium is the perfect choice for the Euro 2020 final and semi-finals. This will be the first time that the European Championships finals will be held here since 1996, when England was selected as the host.
The European Championship is generally hosted by a single country, and occasionally this is split between two different countries. With the 2020 European Championship marking the tournament’s 60th anniversary, UEFA’s Executive Committee decided that this particular instalment of the tournament would be spread across the entire continent.
For the first time ever, the European Championship is being held in twelve different host countries, making it much more accessible to fans across Europe who want to see history being made live and in-person. Here’s the full list of host countries for Euro 2020:
This is especially interesting for bettors, as a number of matches are going to be played on teams’ home turf, and there’s a lot more travelling involved for the players in general. This alone adds a whole new layer of variables for punters to consider when building their betting slips.
The first match of the Group Stage will be held on 12/06/2020 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, and will see Turkey face off against Italy.
