After being delayed for an entire year, the anticipation levels for EURO 2020 is through the roof the least. With less than one month to go before the event starts, more and more people are getting ready to place their bets on their favorite teams and players. While Spain, Italy, Belgium, France, England and Germany are regarded as being the top contenders in the tournament, betting which team will ultimately win is akin to making a fancy punt at this point. Here are some tips to consider when it comes to increasing your odds of getting a decent payday.
1) Outright Betting Wagers
Betting on major tournaments is a very lucrative business. FIFA proclaimed that they experienced a turnover of £136 billion from the last World Cup which was hosted in Russia. A vast majority of that money came from bettors who wagered on which team would win the tournament. Commonly known as an outright bet, it’s the most popular kind of bet for this tournament. As it stands, England and France are the two top teams predicted to win with their odds being at a 16.37% chance of winning. Right behind them is Belgium.
Interestingly enough, the very same teams did remarkably well during the last international tournament, with France ultimately taking the title. But this season (as a result of its delays) has been one of the longest seasons for Europe’s top teams. And, the European Championships have had instances where surprise winners shocked the world. So be on the lookout for Italy, Spain and Portugal which have some of the best em odds outside of the three aforementioned top teams.
2) Top Goal Scorer Wagers
When it comes to top goal scorer wagers, it’s important to remember that England leads the way, yet again in this regard. Their captain Harry Kane has been regarded as being the top choice. When you look at the fact that he won the Golden Boot during the 2018 World Cup as to which he made 6 goals and the fact that he netted 31 times this season, this comes as no surprise. Again, betting on Harry isn’t a guaranteed bet, as is the case with any bet. But as it stands no other player has demonstrated the goal scoring ability that Harry has continuously demonstrated season after season.
3) Consider Acca Wagers
Acca wagers or accumulators as they are commonly known, is when you choose a set of outcomes which then get combined into 1 wager. Accumulator related bets are common because they give you an opportunity to get a large payout with a relatively small wager. Experts believe that accumulators will be especially popular during this season. To give you a better understanding of just how profitable accumulator related bets are and why you should strongly consider them is that, according to the Guinness Book World Records, the highest football bet that was ever paid out, was an accumulator which consisted of over 15 selections. The winner earned an impressive £500,000 with a wager of only £30. In general, the Euro tournaments are highly unpredictable, but experts proclaim that the decision to expand to 24 teams has made the concept of developing an accumulator bet much easier.
