With the European Championships right around the corner, What Are The Odds takes a look at the top contenders – which teams are punters piling into?
The World Cup winners are the favourites at several bookies to go one step further than they managed on home soil in 2016.
A strikeforce of Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe, led by the returning Karim Benzema, is one of the best in world football.
Give them the support of a midfield that includes Champions League winner N’Golo Kante and it’s tough to see past Les Bleus to win the tournament, even if their group looks a little scary.

As short as 9/2, and the favourites at some bookies, Gareth Southgate’s men will have a lot to do to overthrow some of Europe’s top nations.
They can get a good start on it though in a winnable group alongside Croatia, the Czech Republic and the Auld enemy, Scotland.
They’ll be reliant on Harry Kane’s goals making up for a defence that leaves a lot to be desired, and have an exciting trio of attacking midfielders in Phil Foden, Mason Mount, and Jack Grealish, to help him do it.

FIFA’s top-ranked side are only 3rd favourites to earn their first ever major honours this summer, and a lot of that probably has to do with their aging defence.
Lyon’s Jason Denayer is the only member of five listed centre-backs under 30 years of age; with the rest of the squad racking up over 1300 caps.
Like England, they’ll be reliant on their plethora of attacking talent to lead them to glory, but is it too late for The Red Devils’ golden generation?
Germany, Portugal, and Spain (9/1)
This trio of European titans are deadlocked at the same price to take glory home this summer, with Portugal and Germany joining France in Group F.
It’ll be a tough ask for each of them to get out of the group stages, never mind win the whole thing.
Euro 2020 will be Joachim Löw’s last in charge of Die Mannschaft, with Bayern’s Hansi Flick taking the helm after the tournament.
Results of late haven’t been ideal, with a 2-1 defeat to North Macedonia in World Cup qualifying a particular lowlight.
Group F counterparts Portugal are looking to retain their Euro title, and have come in from 17/1 since October 2020.
Led by Cristiano Ronaldo, their style of play is boring but effective. Fernando Santos has one of the best squads in the tournament at his disposal, with some of the Premier League’s top talent on display.
On the subject of squads, Luis Enrique has opted to only take 24 of the 26 permitted players to the tournament.
It means Sergio Ramos will miss out, having struggled with injury for most of 2021, but France-defector Aymeric Laporte makes it – having switched his nationality recently.
If Spain are to go all the way, it’ll be their inexperience that pays dividends.
