Euro 2020 betting

The tournament is formatted by separating the 24 teams in six groups of four teams. The top two teams of each group advance to the round of 16  along with the four best third placed teams. The tournament’s second round is the round of 16, and is formatted differently. These games are single elimination for the rest of the tournament. The group stage, round of 16, and semi-final/final matches offer some of the most intense betting circumstances. Just like many other competitions, teams will have bigger differences in skill at the beginning.

Tournament winner

Betting on the winner of a tournament is a relatively straight forward wager. The bettor places a bet before the event starts on a team to win the entire competition. For example, if a bettor were to risk $100 on one of the teams to win Euro 2020 at odds of 4.00 and they end up winning the punter would make a profit of $300. Odds offered around these types of markets generally provide high returns because they have higher risk.

Group winner betting

Qualifying for knockout stage

Euro 2020 will abide by traditional formats where the top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout stage. It will also include the four best ranked third place teams. Most bookmakers will provide opportunities for bettors to predict which teams will advance. This adds alternative to the outright winner loser scenarios.

Top goalscorer

This bet is pretty self-explanatory. You are predicting who will score the most points in the tournament. This is a high risk bet, and is often paired with high returns if won.  

1X2 Match betting

By far one of the most popular forms of betting that experienced football bettors tend to wager on. It is the option to bet on either team to win the match or draw.

Over/Under – Game totals

OVER/UNDER odds, also known as “totals” betting is becoming more and more popular for online football bettors. Let’s face it, sometimes the competition is very close and is almost impossible to predict who is going to win. This is where totals betting can come in. After some meticulous research on offensive & defensive trends, weather conditions, or any other variable that may affect the amount of scoring produced by both teams. Instead of choosing which team will win the game, bets are placed on whether the combined score of the game will go “over – more than” or “under – less than” a predetermined total combined score.

Euro 2020 betting strategies

Disregard Public Influence

This strategy takes very little research, and is quite simple to implement. All you have to do is bet against what the majority of public is betting on. This method assumes bookmakers have shaded the line in order to better reflect what they think the public will do. After all, football bookmakers primary objective is to set lines that draw 50/50 action, not predict game outcomes. Betting against the public will help gain an edge on the soft lines provided by tennis bookmakers. If you don’t spend a lot of time researching games and analyzing statistics this is a great strategy to use. You will need to be able to identify big market teams, perennial winners, clubs with diehard fans, and popular superstars in order to implement prosperously.

Only Bet 1-2% of your Bankroll

Casual football bettors are known for staking large portions of their bankrolls on singular bets hoping for a grand return. On the contrary, if you want to see long term success in tennis betting, there is a popular strategy you can use. You can wager 1-2% of your bankroll on each predicted outcome, which lowers the risk of dramatic loses. Football betting is notorious for streaky activity, and even the most experienced bettors go through lengthy losing streaks. Limiting the amount of each bet, and sticking to a pre-defined strategy, will create a higher chance of long-term profiting.

Bet Based on Past Records

Twenty years ago, stats were not as in depth, accurate, or readily available as they are in 2018. With everything that’s available on the internet today, it’s almost impossible to properly assess all the information on different sports. Being able to identify relevant data and filtering out the rubbish has become a talent among successful tennis bettors. Today everyone aspires to be a stats geek. It’s no secret that some of the recorded stats are irrelevant to evaluating outcomes. Therefore, it’s important to understand which informations will impact your bets the most. Here are some examples of some of the more important stats to refer to when predicting games.

  • Goals Scored
  • Goals Allowed
  • Shots on Goal
  • Possession %

Hardly any experienced football bettor would advise someone to blindly place a bet without doing a little bit of research. Proper analyses should help you determine valuable bets from invaluable bets, and the most profitable place to wager your money. Simply picking a team based off their name or reputation will decrease your chances in landing a winning bet. This is why stats are important when aspiring for a positive ROI.
