Looking for an outside bet for the Euro 2012 Tournament taking place in Poland and the Ukraine ? Who will win Euro 2012 ? It’s probably going to be Spain, Holland or Germany but the European Championships can often bring a surprise ? Who will be the next england manager ? Will it make any difference ?
Spain are the favourites at 5-2 with Ladbrokes, Paddy Power and BetFred and this would be my top pick. With some of the veterans such as Puyol and Xavi possibly making their last tournament they will be desperate to win the Euro 2012. The only slight question mark is their striking options , with Villa injured and Torres out of form they will have to find other options.
Holland at 15-2 with Paddy Power are good value but they are in the group of death with Portugal and Germany and could easily fail to qualify if they have a bad start. However with the quality of Van Perse you have to fancy the dutch to go far.
Germany are short odds with the best at 7/2 with Ladbrokes, this is due to their tough group but the Germans always find a way to go far in tournaments so it would be no surprise if they reach the final.
You can back England to win the Euro 2012 tournament at a best 10-1 with Paddy Power. They have a fairly easy group but do face the home nation which can be tricky. It would almsot be a miracle if they were to win Euro 2012 as they do lack world class players compared to Spain.
The betting odds on Italy to win Euro 2012 are 14-1 with a number of bookies including Betfair,William Hill and Ladbrokes . The Italians face Spain in their first game but if they snatch a point they could qualify from their group that includes Rep of Ireland and Croatia.
Portugal at 25-1 with Coral but rely too heavily on Ronaldo and have to get past the Dutch and Germans in the group stage.
I can’t see any other teams in contention but Ukraine at 50-1 with Stan James might be backed each way purely on the basis of home support.
