Great Deal of Money Being Wagered on England in Recent Weeks

Published on March 29th, 2016 8:36 pm EST

After years of anticipation, Euro 2016 is now just a few short months away.

Entering the tournament, every team, ranging from host France to the biggest of underdogs (Northern Ireland, Albania), think that they have a chance of winning. In the end, however, just one team will walk away with the glory.
France, which will be hosting the tournament this time around, is currently listed as the favourites to win at 10/3. Under normal circumstances, France would be listed behind Germany, though the home field advantage for France is seen as giving them the best chance of winning of any of the teams in the event.

Germany, which is still basking in the glow of their World Cup victory, is listed at 3/1. Germany will be fielding a powerhouse side in 2016 and there is no reason to think that they can't win the World Cup and Euro events back-to-back.

After that you have Spain at 5/1, England at 8/1 and Belgium at 11/1. There has been a tremendous amount of money being wagered on England as of late, and they are seen as one of the stronger dark horse picks of the tournament. Their recent road victory in a friendly over Germany excited many bettors, and it doesn't hurt that their attack will include two of the top scorers in the English Premier League (Vardy, Kane).

Sweden, 100/1
Ireland, 150/1
