Euro 2024 frontrunners: Assessing the top five contenders in the betting

As the anticipation builds for Euro 2024, with the prestigious tournament set to unfold in Germany next summer, football enthusiasts alike are closely eyeing the top contenders vying for continental glory.

The Euro 2024 winner betting odds have already been released, unveiling the leading nations poised to make a significant impact on the tournament.

Let’s delve into the top five favourites and examine what makes them stand out in the race for the Euro 2024 title.

England (3/1)

Leading the pack with odds of 3/1, Gareth Southgate’s England enter Euro 2024 with the weight of expectations on their shoulders.

The Three Lions had their hearts broken when Italy denied them their first European Championship success on penalties at Wembley three years ago.

However, Southgate has a well-balanced and talented squad featuring seasoned veterans and emerging stars.

Managerial know-how coupled with the players and fans’ hunger for success positions England as formidable contenders.

France (4/1)

2022 World Cup finalists, France enter Euro 2024 with odds of 4/1 and will be eager to add another major trophy to their collection.

Despite a surprising exit to Switzerland in the Euro 2020 Round of 16, the squad boasts an enviable blend of skill, experience and world-class exuberance — which saw them only narrowly miss out on the World Cup last year.

Under the guidance of a tactically astute coach in the form of Didier Deschamps, Les Bleusremain a force to be reckoned with on the international stage.

Germany (6/1)

As the host nation, Germany carry the hopes and expectations of its passionate footballing country into Euro 2024.

Priced at 6/1, the Germans possess a rich footballing heritage and a team known for resilience and efficiency.

They have a massive point to prove after early exits at Euro 2020 (Round of 16) and the 2022 World Cup (group stage).

However, with a blend of seasoned campaigners and emerging talents, Julian Nagelsmann’sside can potentially leverage the home advantage to secure another European title.

Spain (7/1)

Spain, renowned for their iconic tiki-taka style that saw them win two European Championships in a row (2008 and 2012) and the 2010 World Cup, enter Euro 2024 with odds of 7/1.

The fact they won the 2023 Nations League may be an indication that their transitional period is coming to an end, and Spain continue to showcase technical prowess and a commitment to possession-based football.

With a mix of established stars and rising talents, La Roja aim to recapture the Euro success that saw them clinch those aforementioned titles.

Portugal (8/1)

Still led by the indomitable Cristiano Ronaldo, 2016 European Champions Portugal are heading to Germany with odds of 8/1.

As well as Ronaldo, Portugal boast an array of top-class talent — including Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Benardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes and Joao Felix — so, they have a more-than-capable squad.

That, paired with Ronaldo’s constant hunger for success, positions Portugal as genuine contenders to reclaim their European crown from Italy.

While these odds provide a snapshot of the pre-tournament expectations, football is a sport known for its unpredictability and capacity for surprises.

As Euro 2024 approaches, fans can look forward to witnessing captivating matches and memorable moments as these top five nations vie for supremacy on the grand stage of European football.

The stage is set and the excitement is palpable, as we await the kickoff of Euro 2024 in Germany next summer.
