Who will win the Euros? The favourites to lift the trophy ahead of the start of tournament

Euro 2024 is just around the corner with teams soon set to travel out to Germany.

There are plenty of contenders to win the tournament, but who are the favourites?

Analysis from KingCasinoBonus shows the average odds for the winners of the tournament among the big bookmakers…

England – 2.9/1

Their analysis has found that England come out as favourites to win the trophy with the popular bookmakers, averaging odds of less than 3/1. Gareth Southgate’s side reached the final of the previous Euros and with a forward line stacked with talent, could this finally be the tournament where England go all the way? Defence is a concern, however, especially given an injury to starting left-back Luke Shaw which could see him ruled out completely.

France 3.8/1

Unsurprisingly, France are also considered to be among the front runners with average odds of less than 4/1. Newly announced Real Madrid forward Kylian Mbappe will be looking to prove he is once again the best player in the world and lift another major honour with his country. Didier Deschamps knows how to get his team over the line having won the World Cup in 2018 and they will be difficult to stop.

Germany 5.1/1

Germany have not enjoyed the best of times in recent years but with home advantage in the tournament and a squad that is still among the best in the tournament, Julian Nagelsmann will be hoping to lift the trophy with his nation. Kai Havertz enjoyed a fine end to the season with Arsenal as a striker and both the experience and quality they possess across the pitch means they are definite contenders.

Portugal 7.8/1

In what will perhaps be Cristiano Ronaldo’s last major international tournament, the Portuguese star will be hoping to end on a high. With huge talent like Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and Rafael Leao, they will rightly feel confident going into the tournament and certainly have what it takes to have a good run at the trophy.

Spain 8.2/1

Just behind them are neighbours Spain, whose squad is filled with young and exciting players including Barcelona’s Lamine Yamal and Pedri as well as the experience of the likes of Rodri and Dani Carvajal. It could prove to be a fruitful balance between the two and Luis De La Fuente will be hoping to restore his nation back to their place at the top of European football.

Italy 15.3/1

The reigning champions find themselves in a tough group which includes Spain and Croatia so have a difficult task of just making it to the knock-out stages. A lot has changed since that 2021 triumph with plenty of alterations to the squad under a new manager in Luciano Spalletti and they will be hoping to put their failure to qualify for the last World Cup behind them.

Belgium 16.8/1

Belgium’s golden generation appears to have been and gone but they still have one of the best players in the world in Kevin De Bruyne, a seasoned goalscorer in Romelu Lukaku and a young and upcoming star in Lois Openda. It will be intriguing to see how Domenico Tedesco and his side fare this tournament given there are a lot of unknowns around the team.

Netherlands 17.1/1

Very much considered outsiders, the Netherlands will be hoping to prove people wrong under boss Ronald Koeman. Their defensive quality is certainly eye-catching with the likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Nathan Ake, Micky Van de Ven and Stefan de Vrij all included, and while they are lacking up top they have a lot of quality in their squad, which also includes midfielder Frenkie De Jong. Dark horses perhaps?
