This summer, one year later than originally anticipated, bettors in New Jersey have the opportunity to place their sporting wagers on Europe’s biggest international soccer competition, the Euro 2021 (2021) championships. With the tournament being held June 11 to July 11 2021 across 12 different countries (Azerbaijan, Denmark, England, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, the Republic of Ireland, Romania, Russia, Scotland and Spain) for the first time in the tournament history, results are expected to surprise and a range of underdog wins by teams performing on home turf is expected ahead of the final at London’s iconic Wembley Stadium. However, come the pointy end of the tournament, the usual suspects like France, Germany, England, Belgium and Portugal are predicted to feature heavily. Let’s check out the chances of some of the leading contenders, and their odds to win the Euro 2020 (2021) title with leading online sportsbook, 888Sport; England +550 England have the perfectly opportunity to build on their fourth-place finish in the 2018 World Cup in this summer’s Euro 2020 (2021). Three years ago in Russia, Gareth Southgate’s side were unlucky to lose to Croatia in the semi-finals. England have a young team that is hungry for recognition, and importantly another 3 years of big-time experience. As an enormous boost for England, five of their seven games, including a potential semi-final and final, will take place at Wembley in front of home crowds. Belgium +600 The Belgians are another side looking to seek atonement for their deeds at the Russia’s 2018 World Cup (third place). Arguably, the most exciting team in world soccer today (officially ranked the world’s #1 team by FIFA) showcases the likes of goal-scoring machine Romelu Lukaku fed by quality attacking midfield stars in Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard. They’ll score plenty of goals. Perhaps the only drawback to Belgium’s chances is the lack of home games. However, this team is super professional and they are sure to feature in the knockout stages of the tournament. France +600 The current World Champions suffer from an almost embarrassment of riches in player quality, and can almost field two teams worth of exceptional player talent. Making them serious contenders are their incredible line-up of world-class players such as Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and N’golo Kante and led admirably by experienced coach, Didier Deschamps. Deschamps sometimes eccentric team selections saw them elevate to the 2018 World Cup winner’s position. They know what it takes to win an international competition. Germany +800 Experienced observers know that Germany (including State Governor Phil Murphy who placed the first ever legal sports wager in New Jersey on Germany to win the 2018 World Cup) are never to be counted out of any international football competition as the team constantly regenerates its squad with a host of talented youngsters. This summer look for coach Joachim Löw and his team of young talent like Leroy Sane, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Jamal Musiala, Florian Witz and Serge Gnarby to overperform their low expectations. Portugal +800 Defending Euro champions, Portugal will have to come through the so-called ‘Group of Death” that they share with the French World Champions and a German side hell-bent to avenge for their disappointing 2018 World Cup campaign. The Portuguese, of course, boast one of the best players in world soccer in Cristiano Ronaldo, who is backed up by strength-in-depth with Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Raphael Guerreiro and the outstanding defender, Ruben Dias, one of the pillars of Manchester City’s imposing backline defense. Best Underdog Bet The Netherlands +800 The Dutch will have an easy pathway through their group against so-so opposition on home turf. Roll-in another possible home game in the knockout phase, and the draw opens up for quality players like Virgil van Dijk, Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong and Luuk de Jong to shine.
