Preparations for the European Championship 2012 are well under way and just as the teams are gearing up for the tournament finals, so are online bettors looking to take advantage of some sharp Euro 2012 outright markets. Just to make your job a bit easier, our team of betting experts have selected top 10 Euro 2012 betting odds.
La Furia Roja remain a team to beat after winning Euro 2012 and 2010 World Cup and in spite of small problems in attack, Spain remain the number one favourites for the trophy. At odds of 3.75, backing Vincent Del Bosque’s side to win the tournament looks the right thing to do.
Germany are expected to reach the final stages of the tournament and there is every chance that a big portion of goals will be scored by red-hot Mario Gomez. After bagging 41 goals for Bayern this season, the experienced forward can be trusted to become tournament top goalscorer.
While major tournaments are always pretty unpredictable, all football pundits agree that Spain and Germany are the main candidates for the coveted title. If all goes as planned, the two sides should meet in the final and bring nice profits to those betting on this excellent market.
France clearly lack a true goalscorer in the side, and with Karim Benzema and Olivier Giroud set to vie for one place in the centre of attack, another player could take advantage of this and finish as team’s top goalscorer. Our bet is Franck Ribery, who has been in scintillating form this season.
With the likes of Iniesta, Silva, Torres, Soldado and Llorente, Spain should have no problems scoring a couple of goals in each game, even if David Villa fails to make the squad. La Furia Roja, therefore, look a good bet to be the highest scoring side.
Czech Republic have showed a lot of potential of late and following some impressive performances in the Euro 2012 qualifiers, they stand a good chance to progress from the easiest group at the final tournament.
As we have already mentioned, Germany are one of the main candidates for the trophy and seeing they traditionally do well at major tournaments, die Mannschaft could easily reach the Euro 2012 final.
Greece are probably the weakest side at the final tournament and with their trademark defensive tactics set to be deployed once again, Fernando Santos’ side will struggle to score in any of the three group games. With no proven goalscorer in the squad, Greece are a safe bet to finish as the lowest scoring team.
While Robin van Persie may have finished the season as Premier League top goalscorer, Klaas Jan Huntelaar has proved to be much more lethal on international level and he is likely to start as centre forward, with RVP moved to the wing. As a result, the Schalke man should continue his amazing scoring form to be team’s top goalscorer.
There will be seven matches played following the group stage fixtures and all the teams that make it to the quarter-finals are going to adopt more cautious style in the knockout matches. That should guarantee some close games and we could easily see at least three games going to extra time.
