    Euro 2016 Soccer Odds: France Still Among Favourites

    Euro 2016 Soccer Odds: France Still Among Favourites

    Only seven games remain in the 2016 Euro Cup and when the tournament started few would have thought Wales and Iceland should be taking part in them. But that is the beauty of the Euro Cup. Though not every year a surprise nation wins - Spain won in 2008 and 2012 - it does happen, most recently with Greece in 2004. Because of this no team that has made it this far should be counted out, even if the odds are not in their favour. Ready for some more soccer betting?

    The bookmakers have the Cup pegged as a five-team race with France and Germany as the favourite, while giving little love to Poland, Wales, and Iceland.

    Euro 2016 France Odds And Prediction

    Prediction: 2-0 Victory over Belgium in the Euro Cup Finals (15/4 Outright Odds)

    The host nation enters the Quarter-finals as the co-favourite to win the 2016 Euro Cup. Through their first four games, France has played well but has not overpowered any opponents yet. France still has one of the best international team and will become the first host nation to win the Cup since 1984 - through strong defence, superb strategy and using their home field advantage, 

    Euro 2016 Germany Odds And Prediction

    Prediction: 1-1 Loss to France in Penalty Kicks in the Semi-Finals (15/4 Outright Odds)

    A perennial favourite in any soccer tournament, Germany is given the best odds - along with France - to win the whole tournament. Germany faces a tougher road to the finals than France - with Italy in the quarters being a tough match for anyone - and if predictions hold up, they will face France in the semi-finals. Even if Germany can beat Germany and France, Belgium looks like the favourite coming out of the other side of the bracket - Germany winning three consecutive games against those nations is a tall task even for them. 

    Euro 2016 Wales Odds And Prediction

    Prediction: 2-0 Loss to Belgium in the Quarter-finals (25/1 Outright Odds)

    The odds are not in Wales favour in 2016, but overall the team has shown growth and looks to be a player in international soccer for years to come. The Welsh - outside of Gareth Bale - lack the star power most Euro Cup championships are studded with.  

    Euro 2016 Belgium Odds And Prediction

    Prediction: 2-0 Loss to France in the Euro Cup Finals (5/1 Outright Odds)

    On the opposite side of the brackets than Germany and France bettors can find Belgium. Just slightly below France and Germany, Belgium is the next best pick to win it all. With an easier path to the Finals than France and Germany, picking Belgium to win it all is smart and pays out $500 on a $100 bet. Expect Belgium to make the Finals but lose to the host.

    Euro 2016 Italy Odds And Prediction

    Prediction: 2-1 Loss to Germany in the Quarter-finals (15/2 Outright Odds)

     If Italy drew a better spot in the bracket they would be a better pick to win their second Euro Cup title. The Italians do have momentum in their favour, as they avenged their 2012 Finals defeat to Spain in the Round of 16 - knocking the Spaniards out 2-0. Do not expect Italy to go out without a fight, but wagering on them to win outright is definitely not without risk. 

    Euro 2016 Poland Odds And Prediction

    Prediction: 1-0 Loss to Belgium in Semi-Finals (19/1 Outright Odds)

    Out of all the big underdogs remaining Poland has the best shot - though a long one still. Poland does not have an extraordinary offense, but their defense and goaltending have kept them in most games all tournament - including a 0-0 draw against Germany. Those reasons are why they are getting the edge in the quarters before losing to the well-rounded and superior Belgium team.   

    Euro 2016 Portugal Odds And Prediction

    Prediction: 1-1 Loss to Poland in Penalty Kicks in the Quarter-finals (15/2 Outright Odds)

    Portugal is a difficult team to read - as they have trouble finding consistency - primarily in terms of consistent scoring from their top players. They face Poland in the quarters, but their rollercoaster 2016 Euro Cup looks like it may come to an end against a strong defensive squad. Portugal could potentially right the ship and their path to the Finals is not overwhelming, it just seems unlikely they will be able to produce three quality games in a row.   

    Euro 2016 Iceland Odds And Prediction

    Prediction: 2-1 Loss to France in the Quarter-finals (40/1 Outright Odds)

    The team that has captured the hearts of soccer fans across the world is also the team with by far the longest shot of winning it all. As 2016 is their first ever Euro Cup, the team has exceeded nearly all expectations and their victory aginst England will remain in the minds of their supporters for years. Sadly most signs point to Iceland falling to France and while it would be fun to pick and cheer for Iceland, most sane bettors will pick France on July 3rd.
