The time has come for soccer betting fans to take a good hard look at the Euro 2012 odds as the long awaited action kicks off in Poland and the Ukraine this Friday. Can Spain, who’ve dominated the prestigious international circuit of late, follow through on their lofty soccer futures? With 13/5 odds of winning the European Championship, it’s hard not to consider the Spaniards the team to beat, even harder when you take into consideration that they’re defending both 2008’s Euro crown and their 2012 World Cup.
But 2012 is a new year, not only for Spain, but the rest of a competitive field. Though host countries Poland and Ukraine may be a splash in the bucket of worthy European clubs, juggernauts in Germany and Holland promise to threaten as the tournament wages on. Euro 2012 odds in Vegas have listed host country Poland as 66/1 longshots while much not is expected of the Ukraine squad either being listed at 40/1. Germany however, is the second wagering choice to win the title at 3/1 while the Dutch would pay-out 7/1 if they were to avenge their loss to Spain in the 2010 World Cup Finals.
Joining Holland in a vicious Group D are England and France - don’t miss the latest in their historic rivalry when the first batch of group play games wraps up on June 11th. England has been listed as 11/1 soccer betting favorites to win the European championship while France has been listed at 10/1. Don’t wait the weekend to play, however, as this Friday is when soccer betting fans worldwide will be able to breathe their first sigh of relief. Can Russia and the Czech Republic follow up the opening ceremonies in style with a matchup as exciting as it is meaningful? Euro 2012 odds have Russia returning 20/1 if they were to win the final while the Czech Republic would pay-out 50/1 for the tournament win.
