Euro 2024: England impresses and becomes favourite

Despite a difficult journey so far, England have managed to reach the quarter-finals of the Euros. Jude Bellingham’s team-mates are unexpectedly the bookmakers’ favourites to win.

In the general opinion of football observers and fans, Spain and Germany are the two teams that have made the best impression since the start of the Euro. The solidity of the French team has also been highlighted but in no case, England is back in the debates among the teams that can win the competition on July 14. However, and against all expectations, the Three Lions are the big favorites of the bookmakers for the final victory. Indeed, the online betting site comparator Oddschecker reveals that on average, England is the team that is most given favorite by the different bookmakers, ahead of Spain… and France. Something quite inexplicable, Germany only comes in 4th place while Portugal, future opponent of France in the quarter-finals, is 5th in the list of favorites.

England’s position among bookmakers is partly explained by the fact that Gareth Southgate’s team is in a more favourable part of the table with Switzerland in the quarter-finals and the winner of the match between the Netherlands and Turkey in the semi-finals. On the other side, Germany and Spain then France and Portugal will eliminate each other, which logically opens up great prospects for Jude Bellingham’s teammates. The fact remains that from what we have seen since the start of the tournament, the English are clearly not the most attractive, quite the contrary. In the round of 16, we had to wait for an exploit from the Real Madrid star in added time to hang on to extra time before winning after 120 minutes. The group stage was also sluggish and for the moment, observers can hardly imagine seeing England go all the way. Which would not be a surprise for sports betting sites.
