Arsenal didn’t have the year as planned. In fact, it was one of the more disappointing seasons lately. Even though this team has fantastic individuals, they couldn’t click and form proper chemistry, which resulted in mediocre results.
Though, four of those players will have a chance to improve their year as they participate in the upcoming European championship. Granit Xhaka is called up for Switzerland, Kiernan Tierney for Scotland, Bernd Leno is in the German team, and Bukayo Saka became England’s player.
We’ll run through EURO 2020 betting odds for all of their national teams in this article and see where they stand at the moment.
The Swiss side had a good run in the recent few years, and we just might say that this team plays extremely well. They are tough to beat, have a good system on the pitch, and as time goes by, look stronger and stronger.
Of course, they have slim chances of winning the title, 60/1, but the analysts expect to see them in the knockout stage. The odds for that to happen are 4/7. By the way, they are in Group A with Italy, Turkey, and Wales. Switzerland to win that assembly is 9/2, and this could be a longshot worth trying. There is another bet which needs to be seen, and that is for this team to reach the quarterfinals, 4/1.
Germany is one of the biggest contenders to win the title, and even though Bernd Leno might not be in the starting lineup, we will make a short preview of Die Mannschaft’s prospects at this championship. This will be Joachim Low’s last outing as Germany’s head coach. After this, Hansi Flick will become the new leader of the national team.
The Germans are 8/1 to win the title, making them the fourth overall favorite for the trophy. In the group with France, Portugal, and Hungary, they are the top favorites to end first. The bookies placed 5/4 odds on that to happen, with France sitting at 11/8 and Portugal at 7/2. Kai Havertz, one of Arsenal’s wishes last summer, is the second favorite to win the best young player of the tournament award, 6/1, with only Phil Foden ahead 7/2.
Germany isn’t as convincing as before, but still, this team has enormous potential, and the ability to explode at any given moment and smash all the rivals. Don’t forget that four of their players appeared in the recent UCL finals and that three of them lifted the trophy, Havertz, Werner, and Rudiger.
Scotland had a marvelous way up to EURO. They had to go through the playoffs, and eventually defeat Serbia on the road, following a penalty shootout. It was one of a kind adventure for Steve Clarke’s squad. They are fifth from behind on the favorites list for winning EURO, and that pretty much tells everything about this team and its strength. However, the Scots are one feisty group of guys, and they could go beyond expected limits.
They are 250/1 to win the title, but their chances to progress to the knockout stage are much better. Right now, they are at 5/4, and even though these are the longest odds in Group D, Scotland does have a chance to surprise because they play some matches at home. The Scots to win Group D is 16/1, and to reach the quarterfinals 8/1.
England is in the group with Scotland, Bukayo Saka might face his teammate Tierney. Saka is on Southgate’s list, and whether he plays in up to him.
Arsenal’s forward is among the players who could explode and receive the young player of the tournament award with odds at 20/1. Three of his teammates, however, have better prospects. Phil Foden is the top favorite, as said earlier, while Jadon Sancho sits fifth at 12/1. Three places behind is Declan Rice with 17/1. Mason Greenwood is 33/1, and Jude Bellingham, 35/1.
Overall, the English national team is No.1 on the favorites list, 5/1, and are followed by France, 11/2, and Belgium 7/1.
Who knows, maybe one of Arsenal’s players will remember this season with some positive emotions, and apparently, Saka has the biggest chances of them all.
