Euro 2016 Betting-
Online Football Betting including Euro 2016 Betting Odds.
Paddy Power is your home of Euro 2016 betting. This summer's tournament is the 15th European Championships and reigning champions Spain are looking to win an unprecedented third consecutive title. Euro 2016 will be held in France, with ten stadia in ten cities hosting the matches. For the first time, there will be 24 nations present and five countries make their debut at the Euros. Albania, Iceland and Slovakia are among the Euros betting for the first time, and Wales and Northern Ireland also join the party for the first time, alongside both England and the Republic of Ireland.
There are loads of ways to bet on Euro 2016. The outright market sees hosts France and reigning world champions Germany as the Euro 2016 favourites, with Spain, England and Belgium seen as the closest challengers. Portugal, Italy and Croatia are also likely to be popular in the outright betting at longer odds. 'First time winner' betting is also available, meaning if you fancy the chances of England, Belgium, Portugal or some of the mid-ranked teams such as Austria, Poland, Switzerland, Turkey or Ukraine you can back them all in one bet.
Being the host nation isn't necessarily a huge advantage at the Euros. No host nation has won the tournament since France in 1984 and only one host country - Portugal in 2004 - has reached the final since then. Euro 2016 betting is therefore likely to focus on form and the draw rather than home advantage. Backing an outsider each way can often pay dividends at the Euros, with the likes of Denmark, the Czech Republic, Portugal and the Soviet Union all reaching the final since 1988. Of course Greece were 100/1 outsiders when they won the tournament in 2004. After an encouraging 3-2 win in Germany a bet on England this summer could pay a healthy profit, while a bet on Northern Ireland to win Euro 2016 would pay a huge 500/1. A bet on Wales to qualify from Group B will also be popular, particularly considering the four best third place sides progress to the knockout stages.
There are six groups this year in an expended tournament meaning that you have lots of group betting options. Just 8 teams will be eliminated in the first round and so group betting is likely to focus on which teams make it to the knockout round. You can also bet on which teams you don't think will qualify from their group. Between 10 June and 10 July 2016, you'll have the chance to bet on 51 Euro 2016 matches. With a huge range of markets available on each match, you'll have plenty of opportunity to profit on the outcome. First goalscorer betting, correct score betting, handicap betting, half-time score betting and dozens of other markets will be available on each match. Key matches in the group stages include a meeting between two of the Home Nations. There's already a huge interest in England v Wales betting for their match in Lens on 16 June while Northern Ireland v Germany betting sees Michael O'Neill's side available at as long as 10/1. There will be plenty of backers for the Republic of Ireland to beat Belgium, Italy and Sweden while Croatia v Spain looks to be another pick of the group stage. The group stage runs from 10 June to 22 June and then you'll have a chance to bet on matches in the first knockout stage from 25 to 27 June. Euro 2016 quarter final match betting will take place between 30 June and 3 July with the semi-finals in Lyon an Marseille on 6 and 7 July. The Euro 2016 final is in Paris on 10 July.
With no time difference it's going to be easy to bet and watch Euro 2016 on live TV or through a streaming service. Almost 300 million viewers watched Spain's 4-0 win over Italy in the final of Euro 2012 while 23.2 million people watched England go out to Italy in a penalty shootout. Whether you are looking for Euro 2016 outright betting, Euro 2016 group betting or Euro 2016 match betting, we have all the markets you could want.
