It should come as no surprise that England (+300) and France (+340) are the betting favorites as we head into group play this week. Both countries were undefeated in qualifying play and feature rosters that are loaded with stars in the prime of their career.

Host country Germany comes in with the third-best odds at +550, followed by what should be an entertaining Spanish team at +700. Portugal rounds out the top 5 (+800) after going 10-0 in qualifying play.

Best Bet to Win: England (+300)

England are the favorites to win for reason. The roster is stacked from back to front, and includes some of the brightest young stars in the sport. This includes two of the best midfielders in the world in Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham, as well as a pair of young forwards in Saka and Foden who will flank either side of Harry Kane.

Best Longshot Bet: Netherlands (+1600)

Led by superstar Virgil van Dijk, the Dutch have what could be the best defense in Euro 2024. The Liverpool back will likely play alongside Nathan Ake, who had another solid campaign for Manchester City. Outside, Ronald Koeman will likely start with Denzel Dumfries and Daley Blind, who were both extremely solid throughout qualifying play.

What really stands out to us is the depth. If the starting four is van Dijk, Ake, Dumfries, and Blind, that leaves Jeremie Frimpong and Micky van de Ven as two of the better reserve players in the tournament.

How far the Dutch make in this Euro 2024 competition will ultimately come down to the number of goals they can generate. Getting Frenkie de Jong back will help, but the team will need some production out of Weghorst, Gakpo, Simons, and Depay.

Group Winner Best Bet: Spain (-145)

Given the depth (Spain, Italy, Croatia, Albania), it should come as no surprise that the best available odd come out of Group B. That said, we think Spain is clearly the class of this group and should walk away the winners.

Italy comes into the tournament in disappointing form, finishing qualifying play at 4-2-2. Croatia finished second behind Turkey in Group D of qualifiers, indicating father time may have finally caught up to this golden generation squad.

Losing Xavi to a torn ACL is a brutal loss, but Spain starts Rodri, the best defensive midfielder in the world, and Pedri, one of the most exciting young midfielders in the world. Up top, Euro 2024 could end up being a breakout party for 16 year old Lamine Yamal, who has been the best young player in Europe this season.

Longshot Group Winner: Netherlands (+300)

We will go back to the Dutch again with this best bet pick. Group D will ultimately come down to France and the Netherlands, and if the Dutch are able to contain Mbappe and Les Bleus attack, they could steal the group.

Also worth a look is Ukraine (+400), who qualified out of Group C with a record of 4-2-2, including draws against Italy and England. They are in Group E, where an aging Belgium side are -225 favorites to win.

Player of the Tournament: Phil Foden (+1300)

Following a monster season with Man City, we expect Phil Foden to be the start of Euro 2024. The 24 year old midfielder finished this season with 19 goals and 8 assists in 35 matches.

Kane (8) and Saka (4) were the goal scorers in qualifying play, but there is a reason Foden's odds are just slightly longer than Kane (+1300) and better than Saka (+2300).

POT Longshot: Cody Gakpo (+6500)

With such a strong defense, and elite wing play, the Dutch attackers will get plenty of opportunities in this tournament. While Weghorst seems a likely beneficiary, it was Gakpo who was the most efficient goal scorer in qualifying play.

The 25-year-old Liverpool forward scored 3 goals in just 5 matches (273 minutes) during qualifying play. He also tallied 2 assists in a friendly against Scotland in March. We think he will be the attacking focal point of a Dutch team who are capable of making a deep run in this tournament.
