Types of Euro 2024 Predictions

The 2024 European Championship comes bearing lots of winning opportunities for fans of the beautiful game. There are several ways to predict the tournament, but here are some of the more popular ones you'll find at Sportzino.

Outright Predictions

With our highly competitive Euro 2024 winner odds, you can predict who you think will win the tournament even before the first kick-off. Every team has its own odds to win Euro 2024, and it doesn't matter if you plan to back the favorites or the underdogs; there's surely something for you at Sportzino.

But our future picks go beyond predicting the winner. You can also pick the top two and three, as well as the teams to qualify from all six groups. Do you see Albania brushing past Croatia, Spain, and Italy to make it out of Group B? Back them now and win big if they do go on to create history.

Moneyline

Moneyline picks involve predicting the outcome of individual matches. The most common moneyline market is the three-way or 1X2. Here, you predict if the home or away team will win or the game will end in a tie. There's also the double chance market, which lets you back two options simultaneously. For example, in Slovakia's Group E matchup against Romania, you could predict them either winning or drawing the game instead of just backing them to win like in the three-way moneyline.

Totals

The totals market, also called the over/under, allows you to predict the number of goals in a match. We set odds for different goal counts, and you must guess whether the game will have more or fewer goals than our predicted number.

We also have odds for team totals, where you predict the total goals from a single team instead of the overall game. Let's say you see Türkiye scoring more than two goals in their Group F clash against the Czech Republic. Simply scroll down to Team Totals and click the Over 1.5 option under Turkey.

Spreads

When predicting the Euros, you'll come across clashes between clear favorites and underdogs. While you can just use the moneyline pick to back the favorites, the rewards are often not very good, and there's little to no excitement in those kinds of predictions. With spreads, we level the playing field between the teams by giving the favorites a disadvantage before kickoff.

For example, in the Group D game between France and Austria, you can find -1.5 handicap odds for Les Bleus. If you make this pick, France starts the game with a disadvantage and needs to win by at least two goals for a successful prediction.

Live Markets

The action doesn't stop with the first whistle; it gets even more intense. At Sportzino, you will find the best live markets and odds on all 51 games of the 2024 European Championships.

We offer the basics like moneyline, totals, and spreads, but live enthusiasts can take their experience to the next level with our fast markets. These markets let you predict the outcome of the next ten or fifteen minutes of a game. If you notice a change in momentum and have a feeling it'll lead to a goal, quickly drop a fast prediction and get your rewards in minutes.

Sportzino will also provide real-time updates on every game so you don't miss out on any of the action.

Brief History of the European Championships

The UEFA European Football Championship is the most prestigious international football tournament in Europe and second only to the FIFA World Cup worldwide.

Several regional European tournaments were held before the competition's inception in 1966. However, they carried no genuine significance, with most European teams prioritizing the World Cup. Henri Delaunay came up with the idea for a central tournament in the early 1960s, but it wasn't until three years after his death that this idea came to life. The competition's championship trophy is named after him in honor of his role in its formation.

The first edition was held in France, with 17 teams participating in the qualifiers and only 4 in the finals. The Soviet Union defeated Yugoslavia by two goals to one to lift the first-ever Euro trophy. Since then, ten teams have won the prestigious competition. Germany and Spain are the most decorated teams, with three titles each. The latter remains the only country to have won two consecutive editions, completing the feat in 2008 and 2012.

France and Italy have each won two trophies, while Portugal, the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, Greece, Denmark, Netherlands, and Portugal have won the championship.

Euro 2024: Favorites and What to Expect

Euro 2024 will feature 24 teams in the competition's 17th edition. Germany is set to host, with matches played in 10 cities nationwide. The current title holders are Italy, who defeated England in a penalty shootout at Wembley in 2021. With the tournament almost here, let's look at some favorites and what to expect from your 2024 Euro Cup predictions.

France

After narrowly missing out on the title in 2016 and winning the FIFA World Cup two years later, the odds of Euro 2020 were clearly in France's favor. However, a disappointing collapse in the knockout round saw them leave the tournament in the Round of 16. Losing out to clear underdogs Switzerland in a penalty shootout.

But Les Bleus are once again favored to go all the way, and frankly, it's hard not to see why. An impressive showing in the last World Cup saw them reach the final for the second time in a row. Despite Kylian Mbappe's memorable hat trick, they lost out to Lionel Messi's Argentina in the nail-biting thriller. France will travel to Germany with Kylian Mbappe, Eduardo Camavinga, Mike Maignan, and Antoine Griezmann — a squad good enough to conquer European football. They remain the number one favorites.

England

In what is set to be Gareth Southgate's last major tournament in charge of the Three Lions, the Englishman would be looking to break his country's 58-year men's football title drought. English football is experiencing a golden age, with several stars shining worldwide. From the fantastic exploits of Jude Bellingham at the Santiago Bernabeu to Harry Kane's record-breaking season in Germany, England have never had it so good.

Other Teams to Watch Out For

England and France are top favorites but far from the only ones. Germany is another national team that will be looking to cause trouble. Their quality might have dropped in recent years. Still, the team has been rejuvenated with young talents like Jamal Musiala and a tactical manager in Julian Nagelsmann, so it should be an exciting tournament for them.

Cristiano Ronaldo will lead Portugal again, hoping to continue their 100% record from the qualifying round. Another favorite is Spain, home to an impressive crop of young players. Luis Enrique will be looking to shake off the disappointing quarter-final defeat to Morocco in the last World Cup and guide his team to their fourth title.
