Predicting the winner: who will win Euro 2024?

Euro 2024 Winner Prediction

According to the bookmakers, the favourites for Euro 2024 are England, France and Germany. According to the football experts at SportyTrader, the trend is slightly different, with the France-England duo leading the expectations, but Portugal as the third big nation to watch.

Having already won the title in 2016, Roberto Martinez's side boasts incredible quality across the board, symbolised by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Costa, Rafael Leao and Bruno Fernandes, as well as recognised experience in major tournaments and an outsider status that suits them perfectly. For the best value at the current odds, look to Portugal.

Otherwise, Didier Deschamps' France remains our clear favourite. Mike Maignan, Lucas and Théo Hernandez, Dayot Upamecano, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé, Olivier Giroud, Kingsley Coman... the French armada is huge and scares everyone.

Add to that the recent experience of major competitions, and the fact that the motivation will be there - the French of this generation have never won the Euro - and you have all the ingredients of a favourite for final victory. Our winning prediction: France will be crowned European champions!

Euro 2024 Betting Tips: who will score the most goals?

Euro 2024 Top Scorer Prediction

Along with betting on the eventual Euro winners and betting on the teams that will emerge from the group stage, betting on the competition's top scorer is the third main bet offered by online sports betting sites.

This year, in Germany, the competition for this award promises to be fierce, with world-class players in front of goal.

Top Goalscorer: bookmaker's odds

  • Kylian Mbappé (France) - 5.50
  • Harry Kane (England) - 6.00
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) - 15.00
  • Jude Bellingham (England) - 17.00
  • Romelu Lukaku (Belgium) - 21.00
  • Olivier Giroud (France) - 21.00
  • Antoine Griezmann (France) - 26.00
  • Jamal Musiala (Germany) - 26.00
  • Álvaro Morata (Spain) - 34.00
  • Bukayo Saka (England) - 34.00
  • Goncalo Ramos (Portugal)) - 34.00
  • Kai Havertz (Germany)) - 34.00
  • Phil Foden (England)) - 34.00
  • Rasmus Hojlund (Denmark)) - 34.00
  • Aleksandar Mitrovic (Serbia) - 41.00

To correctly predict the top scorer at Euro 2024, don't just focus on the player's name and prestige.

You need to take into account the way his team plays, and the chances they have of shining at this European Championship.

Even if, on paper, Wout Weghorst is a better goalscorer than Antoine Griezmann, for example, it's better to favour the 2018 World Champion given that France is likely to play more games than the Netherlands in the competition which will give Griezmann more opportunities to score goals.

You should also find out who takes free-kicks and penalties, as this allows them the chance to score more than other players. In this respect, England's Harry Kane and France's Kylian Mbappe are undoubtedly the best prediction options for the title of top scorer at Euro 2024.

Euro 2024 group stage prediction

The group stages of Euro 2024 promise to be a great spectacle on each day of the competition.

Played out between the 14th and the 26th of June, the group stage pits all the nations involved against each other as they attempt to qualify for the rest of the competition (see here for more details on how the Euros work).

Below is our prediction for each group, with the likely winner and the potential qualifiers for the rest of the competition.

Group A Prediction: (Germany, Scotland, Hungary, Switzerland)

Euro 2024 Group A Prediction

Group A of the UEFA EURO 2024 features the host country Germany as well as Switzerland, Scotland and Hungary. Germany is the clear favourite to claim the top spot on home soil given the competition, although nothing can be taken for granted. If they are to guarantee a spot in the Round of 16 (and therefore finish second in the group), we can see Switzerland doing the job.

Group A winner odds:

  • Germany - 1.40
  • Switzerland - 6.50
  • Hungary - 8.00
  • Scotland - 9.00

Our prediction for Group A: Germany wins

Euro Group B Prediction: (Spain, Croatia, Italy, Albania)

Euro 2024 Group B Prediction

Group B at Euro 2024 is undoubtedly the group of death. Between Spain, Italy and Croatia, the Albanians have not inherited an easy group and will have to perform miracles to see out the rest of the competition. Perhaps more straightforward than their rivals, and with a balanced squad, Spain represents a good bet for the winner of the first round.

Group B winner odds:

  • Spain - 1.80
  • Italy - 3.00
  • Croatia - 5.50
  • Albania - 26.00

Our Group B prediction: Spain wins

Check out Spain's odd in Euro 2024

Euro Group C Prediction: (Slovenia, Denmark, Serbia, England)

Euro 2024 Group C Prediction

Jude Bellingham's England are the clear favourites in Group C. Even if Denmark should never be discounted and both Slovenia (Jan Oblak, Benjamin Šeško) and Serbia have talented players (Dušan Tadić, Dušan Vlahović), the Three Lions are still a cut above the rest and should have no trouble finishing top. It's a bet we recommend you try with the bookmakers, as the odds are particularly good in January. For second place, the Danes look well equipped to get the better of the Slovenians and the Serbs.

Group C winner odds:

  • England - 1.40
  • Denmark - 5.00
  • Serbia - 9.00
  • Slovenia - 11.00

Our prediction for Group C: England wins

Euro Group D Prediction: (Netherlands, Austria, France, Poland)

Euro 2024 Group D PredictionWon by 4-5 in the penalty shoot-out in the Path-A final, Poland reached a fifth consecutive Euro Finals and joined the Netherlands, Austria and France in this fourth group of the competition (more info here).

France, with one of the best squads in the competition and a World Cup final to their name, should logically dominate this group. The Netherlands, for their part, have everything they need to take second place at the very least.

Group D winner odds:

  • France - 1.53
  • Netherlands - 3.75
  • Austria - 9.00
  • Poland - 11.00

Our prediction for Group D: France wins

Group E Predictions (Belgium, Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine)

Euro 2024 Group E PredictionUkraine managed to secure the last ticket by winning the play-offs and will meet Belgium, Slovakia and Romania in this group stage of Euro 2024.

Group E should be a good one for the Belgian Red Devils, who are in the midst of a revival since the arrival of Domenico Tedesco at the helm. The battle for second place should be fierce.

Group E winner odds:

  • Belgium - 1.40
  • Ukraine - 6.50
  • Romania - 7.00
  • Slovakia - 11.00

Our prediction for Group E: Belgium wins

Group F Prediction (Turkey, Portugal, Czech Republic, Georgia)

Euro 204 Group F PredictionFinally, Group F of the UEFA EURO is set with Georgia winning themselves the final qualifying ticket by beating Greece in penalties at the end of the qualifying play-offs. Georgia, led by coach Willy Sagnol and being the first time taking part in the Euro finals in their history, will have the chance to face Portugal, Turkey and the Czech Republic in the final group of the 2024 European Championships.

Three tough opponents on paper, all boasting players of immense quality on every line. Given their squad and recent experience, Portugal are of course the favourites for first place. For the second qualifying place, Turkey could take advantage of the enormous support of their community in Germany to perform well.

Group F winner odds:

  • Portugal - 1.40
  • Turkey - 5.00
  • Czech Republic - 6.50
  • Georgia - 17.00

Our Group F prediction: Portugal wins

To sum up, the format of the European Championship (see below) and the fact that four of the six third-placed teams qualify for the last 16 leaves little room for surprises. In any case, SportyTrader's experts do not see any big nations not emerging from the group phase. Logic should prevail throughout Germany.

Beginners to sports betting - how does Euro 2024 work and what is its format?

Predictions tips Euro

Now that you're familiar with our various predictions, and just before we look at our free Euro 2024 tips for correctly predicting each match, let's tackle something important: how the 2024 European Championship works.

Organised by UEFA, Euro 2024 brings together a total of 24 nations to compete for the title of European football champions. 

Held every four years, the competition is one of the toughest on the planet in terms of level, and sometimes more difficult to win than a World Cup. That, at least, is the opinion of many players who are still active.

In terms of format, the competition begins with a group phase, in which the 24 teams are divided into six pools of four. Played between the 14th and the 26th of June 2024, this first phase sees each team in a group compete in a sort of mini-championship.

At the end of the three-game phase, the teams ranked first and second in their group qualify for the last 16, and the teams ranked third also have a chance of qualifying.

In fact, four of the six best third-placed teams in terms of points also earn a place in the last 16 of the European Championship. If Italy, for example, finished third in Group B with three points and at the same time, the third-placed teams in two other groups finish with fewer points, the Italians are still in the competition. 

In the end, this system leaves little room for surprises and greatly favours the major nations of European football.

Once all the qualifiers are known, the rest of the competition (the 29th of June - the 14th of July) moves into knockout mode. The winners of the Round of 16 qualify for the quarter-finals, the winners of the quarter-finals qualify for the semi-finals, and the winners of the semi-finals qualify for the final.

In the event of a draw at the end of normal time in this second phase of the tournament, the teams will first go into extra time and then possibly into a penalty shoot-out. A programme that should make Euro 2024 predictions the most interesting of your sporting year.

Things to remember about the organisation of the Euros for your football predictions

  • 24 teams qualify
  • Group stage (six pools of four) from the 14th to the 26th of June 2024
  • 1st and 2nd in a group qualify for the Round of 16
  • Four of the six best third-placed teams qualify for the Round of 16
  • Knockout matches from the 29th of June to the 14th of July 2024
  • Round of 16, quarters, semi-finals and final
  • No match for 3rd place

Before making your betting strategy for Euro 2024, always bear in mind the format of the competition. This will undoubtedly help you avoid the pitfalls on the final day of the group phase.

Our tips for predicting Euro 2024 matches

Now that you have familiarised yourself with our various predictions and the format of the European competition, here is our general advice on how to make the right prediction for each Euro 2024 match.

If applied correctly, these betting tips will enable you to place better bets with online bookmakers and get even closer to the right predictions. 

Our main tips:
  • Check their current form
  • Analyse the squads for Euro 2024
  • Check for major absentees
  • Take into account European rivalry
  • Understand the history of head-to-head meetings in Europe

By taking these five tips into account, you should be able to make better predictions about the tournament. Want more details on each? We'll tell you all about it in the next few lines.

Check their current form

Betting tips Euro 2024

First of all, you need to check the latest results of the two teams you are predicting if you don't want to make a mistake.

For example, did one side win their last match, while their opponent took a beating? In that case, it would be better to go for the team with the victory, as the momentum and confidence will be on their side.

So, before placing your bet, make sure you look at the latest results obtained by both sides. This will always be important.

Analysing the squad for Euro 2024

Secondly, you need to analyse the teams present on both sides of the pitch.

Can a team count on talented players in every position? Are the key players fit? Are there any injured players who will reduce the chances of performing well off the bench?

These are all questions you need to ask yourself before making a prediction about a Euro 2024 match.

This is even truer for the 'small nations', who rely heavily on two or three individuals to perform well.

Bet on your favourite team at Bet365

Check if there are any major absentees

Betting tips Euro 2024

In the same vein as the previous point, you also need to take stock of any absentees if you want to make as many Euro 2024 predictions as possible.

If, for example, Mike Maignan and Kylian Mbappé are injured or suspended for a French team match, you may have to think twice before predicting success for France. 

For each prediction on these Euro 2024 matches, don't forget to find out which players are unavailable. A major absence will always be decisive.

Take into account the European rivalry

Don't forget to consider any rivalry between the two teams.

In a France-Portugal, France-Italy or Germany-England match, for example, the rivalries are great and one-sided matches are rare.

So if you spot a match between two historic rivals, beware: it's the same context as a derby in the Premier League.

Understanding the history of head-to-head meetings in Europe

Finally, one last piece of advice: it's still very important to take into account the history of head-to-head meetings between the two teams.

For example, if France starts as favourites against the Netherlands but the latter are unbeaten in 6 years and 9 meetings against the French (fictitious example), you should probably reconsider your bet if you were going to bet on Didier Deschamps' men.

This reasoning should be applied to every match at UEFA Euro 2024, particularly during the group stage. Remember that knockout matches are always tense, whatever happens.

By working on these five points systematically, you should have a better chance of making reliable predictions for this 17th UEFA EURO Championship.

Although other aspects are also important, these pillars should be given priority when analysing the match you want to bet on.

What not to do when making your Euro 2024 predictions

As well as following our advice and the best practices outlined in the paragraph above, there are some things you should avoid doing if you want to make a successful prediction on the European tournament.

  • Bet too much on your favourite team
  • Place a bet after losing to "make up for it".
  • Not paying attention to tactical schemes
  • Betting too much live and losing your nerve
  • Favouring the favourites without analysing the match
