The Euro Cup, which is held every two years, kicks off this Friday! It’s the biggest International tournament in Europe (not counting the World Cup). The top two teams in each pool move on to the knockout stage, and then the next 4 best teams qualify also. We’ll take you through the group stages and give you our predictions for the tournament. If you want to talk about a sport where you can make some money, then I suggest you start to get into soccer.

This tournament will take place in France this year which gives France the edge in the tournament, aside from the fact the French are also a very good team. But I think a lot of times that pressure of being the home team gets to you, just ask Brazil about the most recent World Cup. So I don’t think the French are going to get it done. We’ll give you who we think will win AND some good value bets.
Winner of the Euro Cup: Germany +400
Value team: Portugal +1600
Portugal has a very easy pool and lets not forget they have the best goal scorer in the entire tournament on their team, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Super long shot: Switzerland +5000
The Swiss also have a fairly easy pool and should definitely make their way out of it. In knockout stages, especially at a neutral field anything can happen. So I’ll gladly take a team getting 50/1 odds that I know will easily get out of pool play.
Top goal scorer: Cristiano Ronaldo +800
With how easy of a pool Portugal has it wouldn’t surprise me to see Ronaldo score quite a few goals in the pool play alone.
So there you have it, our predictions for the 2016 Euro Cup. Good Luck to any of you bettors out there or just people who are passionate about the country they cheer for! We hope nothing but the best for you, Cheers!
