Best bets of Euro 2016

Let us guide you through the best of Euro 2016 from around the bookmaker world.

Euro 2016 is finally upon us. Offices around the country have prepared their Euro sweepstakes, out of offices have been set for 4pm on Monday. Spare a thought for the poor souls sitting their state examinations right now. And then move along as your preparation for Euro 2016 begins here and now. We’ve trawled the world wide web and compiled our list of Euro 2016 Top Tournament Bets. Here’s your worksheet for beating the bookies this summer.

Top Tournament Outright Picks

France- Best priced at Betfair 16/5*

It’s hard to look past the home favourites right now, winners of the tournament 3 times already (1960, 1984, 2000). France enters the tournament having qualified as the host nation. An interesting point to note, the last 2 times France have hosted a major tournament, they have walked away with the trophy (Euro 1984, World Cup 1998)


Germany- Best priced at Coral 9/1*

The defending World Champions head into the tournament in shaky form having lost 3 of their last 5 warmups for the tournament. They do however boast an excellent tournament record of being named champion 3 times (1972, 1980, 1996). Who are we to really question them anyway? When you can leave a player of Marco Reus’ calibre at home, you must be well stocked.

Top Goalscorer

Antoine Griezmann- Best priced at BoyleSports 9/1*

If form is the statistic to go by, look for Griezmann to propel France towards the title this summer. Griezmann’s 22 goals this season helped lead an unfavoured Atletico side to a final week title chase in La Liga and a heartbreaking penalty loss to rivals Real Madrid in this year’s Champions League final. Look for Griezmann to lead the line for a young and hungry French team.

Ireland Specials

To win outright- Best priced at William Hill 100/1*

It’s quite evident that the likelihood of Ireland winning it all is slim. However Leicester City have proven anything is possible in team sports so if you want to put a sneaky fiver down, the odds are rewarding.

Team Top Goalscorer

Robbie Keane- Best priced at Paddy Power 8/1*

The baton may be passed to Long and Walters in the starting XI, however don’t look past Robbie Keane doing what he does best and providing the goals when his country needs him as a super sub. Keep an eye on Jon Walters fitness too before you back him.

England Specials     

Top Scorer/ Outright Winner - Harry Kane / England- Ladbrokes 50/1*

With Harry Kane looking set to spearhead Roy Hodgson’s England, this looks an appetising bet. If England can finally showcase some cohesion on the big stage, look for Kane to provide the end delivery.
