Euro 2024: Betting Preview, Predictions and Bonuses

The draw has been made for the group stage of next summer’s European Championships and as the outright betting markets react to the news, here at we’ll cast our eye over the six groups as well as offering the very best outright odds and Euro 2024 free bet offers from our online betting partners at BoyleSports.

Group A: Scotland to open the tournament

Scotland’s reward for an excellent qualification campaign is a spot in Group A alongside hosts, Germany; as well as Hungary and Switzerland. Steve Clarke’s side will be involved in the tournament’s opening fixture as they take on Germany at the Allianz Arena in Munich on June 15th. Scotland will take on Switzerland in Cologne before concluding the group stage in Stuttgart against Hungary.

Winner of Group A Odds
Hungary 5/1

Group B: The group of death?

Three of the world’s top ten nations have been drawn in Group B; a group immediately labelled as the ‘group of death’. Holders, Italy take on Albania in their opening group match whilst Spain take on Croatia in a repeat of last summer’s UEFA Nations League final.

The bookmakers are tipping Spain to top the group however, with four of the six third-placed teams set to progress, there’s a good chance that Spain, Italy and Croatia could all see themselves through to the round of 16.

Winner of Group B Odds
Spain 3/4
Croatia 4/1

Group C: Favourable draw for England

The draw has been kind to England’s Three Lions with the Euro 2020 runners-up picked in Group C alongside Slovenia, Serbia and 1992 winners, Denmark. Gareth Southgate’s side are amongst the bookies’ favourites to win the entire tournament and should ease into the knockout stage. Should they progress as group winners, England will face one of the best-performing third place teams in the round of 16.

Harry Kane scored eight goals in qualifying and he’s been consistently prolific in recent major international tournaments. The Bayern Munich forward earned the Golden Boot at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and enjoyed success at Euro 2020, scoring four goals. Kane could be a real bargain in the Golden Boot betting, especially when you consider the modest group England find themselves in.

Winner of Group C Odds
Denmark 7/2
Slovenia 16/1

Group D: Tough group awaiting Wales

Wales are two games away from qualifying for a third major tournament in eight years. Robert Page’s side take on Finland in Cardiff in March before facing the winner of Poland versus Estonia. However, awaiting the Welsh is an extremely difficult group that includes current world champions, France as well as Netherlands and Austria.

Wales would begin their campaign against the Netherlands in Hamburg with the June 21st fixture in Leipzig between the Netherlands and France is a likely group decider.

France are the bookies’ outright favourites to win the tournament and won both home and away against the Netherlands in qualifying.

Winner of Group D Odds
France 1/2
Austria 7/1
Play-off Winner A16/1

Group E: Belgium expected to progress

Group E is the only one of the six groups to feature two nations that came through qualifying unbeaten. Belgium eased into another major tournament with six wins and two draws from their eight qualification matches. Surprisingly, Romania also went unbeaten in qualifying, winning four and drawing four as they topped their qualification group ahead of Switzerland and Israel.

Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku scored a record-breaking 14 goals in qualifying and is worth real consideration to earn the Golden Boot however, Group E could prove to be the lowest-scoring of the six groups.

Winner of Group E Odds
Belgium 1/3
Romania 11/2
Slovakia 13/2
Play-off Winner B12/1

Group F: Ronaldo swan song

In what is likely to be his last ever major international tournament, Cristiano Ronaldo remains a talismanic figure within a very talented Portuguese squad. Portugal qualified for next summer’s European Championship with a perfect qualifying record of ten wins from ten matches. The 2016 champions boasted the best attack (30 goals scored) and best defence (two goals conceded) in qualifying and are justifiably shortlisted to win the tournament outright.

Portugal kick off their tournament against Czech Republic at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig before meeting Turkey in Dortmund four days later. The final spot in Group F will be filled by the winner of play-off C (Greece, Kazakhstan, Georgia or Luxembourg).

Winner of Group F Odds
Czech Republic7/1
Play-off Winner C 16/1
