UEFA EURO 2020 Knockout Bracket Odds

Some teams have seen slight changes in Euro 2020 odds from their pre-tournament numbers, some of which is based on a perceived easier or tougher draw to reach the final. Here is where the outright market stands heading into the Round of 16.

UEFA EURO 2020 Knockout Bracket Format

The tournament opened with six groups playing in a 24-team format. After three games determined which teams emerged, the Round of 16 includes: Wales, Denmark, Austria, Italy, Netherlands, Czech Rep., Belgium, Portugal, Croatia, Spain, England, Germany, Sweden, and Ukraine.

There is no specific host country and matches will be played across a dozen venues. The top two of each group advanced, along with the four best third-place teams, which allowed Portugal, France, and Germany to all emerge from Group F, the infamous ‘Group of Death’ this year.

In the knockout stage, extra time and penalty kicks may decide games. The quarterfinals are scheduled for July 2-3, the semifinals on July 6-7, and the Euro 2020 championship game will be July 11.

UEFA EURO 2020 Knockout Bracket Betting Preview

The Favorites

The defending 2018 World Cup champions, France is the favorite to take the Euro Cup as well. Les Blues have a deep roster that is led by arguably the new greatest player in the world, Kylian Mbappe. No defense is equipped to deal with Mbappe in space. France has a bit of an easier draw with a first-round match up against Switzerland, followed by a potential World Cup Final rematch with Croatia or a test against an aging Spanish team.

England and Germany are the second and fourth favorites, but one side is going home after their Round of 16 match (12:00p ET, June 29 on ESPN). That game happens to be in London. The Germans will be in hostile territory. Note the market to predict the winner of this match facing France in the Euro Cup Final is rather lucrative. FanDuel Sportsbook offers +1400 odds for Germany and France to meet in the Final.

The Contenders

Italy has been the most surprising side in group play with excellent movement and contributions from young players and have not conceded a goal. It is the first team in Euros history to win each group stage game without conceding. In fact, this squad has not allowed a goal in more than 1,000 minutes. But now, the competition gets tougher. The Italians could face a tough Belgium squad in the quarterfinals, or face Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal in the Round of 8. The Portugese won Euro 2016, but does Ronaldo have enough left in the tank to lead his team to glory five years later? He is a big favorite in Golden Boot odds for Euro 2020 entering the knockout stage.

Despite their aging roster, Spain (+750) is still one of the top contenders to push for Euro glory. But their draw is difficult and the same can be said for Kevin de Bruyne and Belgium (+900) as they take on Portugal (+1200) in the first round.

A Long Shot That’s Getting Some Love

Denmark (+1900) is a feel-good story with a good chance to win their first game against Wales. The Danes lost Christain Eriksen to a scary heart condition during group play and should have plenty of support with their first game in Amsterdam.

However, the Netherlands (+900) are the sleeper to back in terms of winning it all. The Dutch earned 9 points in Group play with wins over Austria, Ukraine, and North Macedonia, and their balanced roster is capable of overcoming more star-studded teams with cohesive teamwork. The Dutch should are heavily favored to advance against Czech Republic in the Round of 16 and should get similar respect in a potential quarterfinal match against either Denmark or Wales.
