Euro 2020 qualifying: our selected betting sites

We are at a crucial stage of the Euro 2020 qualifiers. Some teams, such as Italy, have already secured their place in the summer’s tournament while others, including England, still have it all to play for. The side finishing with most points in each of the 10 groups automatically qualifies for Euro 2020.

At the time of writing, just two fixtures remain for each team in the Euro 2020 qualifiers and most of these will be played on the week commencing 11th November.

There are many ways to place a bet on the Euro 2020 qualifying. For groups that remain competitive, you can have your say on the winner or play one of the specials available. These include teams to manage a top two finish, nations to qualify yes/no or look further ahead and bet on the Euro 2020 outright winner.

Group winner

Placing your bets at this stage of qualification means not all groups are available. Some groups have already been decided, with certain teams cementing their place at Euro 2020. This list includes Italy.

Other groups remain live, competitive and have kept Euro 2020 qualifying odds compilers guessing right up until the finish. In Group C Holland and Germany are level on 15 points but the money men have Holland as strong favourites to prevail. There looks to be value in backing Germany in that market.

In Group D, Ireland and Denmark are level on 12 points with Switzerland one behind. ROI have played a game more, however, and they have a massive price attached to win the pool. Make your Euro 2020 betting tips before it’s too late.

Group top 2 Yes/No

A great alternative Euro 2020 qualifiers market offered by certain bookmakers is the top two finish yes or no. This may sound complicated and even a little off-putting to less experienced backers, but it really is quite simple. It has proven to be a big hit with bettors as it gives them a double chance at landing a winner and offers odds that work quite well in accumulators.

This bet is a straight question which requires a yes or no answer. Will a team finish first or second? Punters take their pick, add their stake and make their bets. An example of this bet could be on England yes. You could also go for the Republic of Ireland no for a better price. The more competitive a group is at this stage, the better the price for your team to finish on the top two. You’ll find many Euro 2020 betting tips and predictions on this one.

Please note, not all bookmakers offer this type of bet.

Top goalscorer of Euro 2020

The top goal scorer betting market for Euro 2020 may not be live yet – check your bookmaker of choice when all the finals places have been confirmed. That doesn’t mean to say you can’t begin to work on your top goal scorer bets, however.

Look at the teams who have already confirmed their qualification or those who are within touching distance. Then check which players have been prolific in front of goal during Euro 2020 qualifying. Also, research player ranking. Write a note of these players and keep them in mind for when the Euro 2020 top goal scorer market becomes live. It would also be wise to wait until the groups have been drawn as many goals are scored during the first three matches, before the intensity of knockout football kicks in.

You can also predict your candidate by checking on league form. Who has been rattling in the goals for their clubs in the top divisions around Europe? Which players have made an impact on the Champions League and Europa League? The more research you do on the matter the more chance there is of you landing a winner. Look out for Euro 2020 betting tips.

Play-off round

The teams finishing second will then be added to a play-off round where they play once at home and once away. The play-off draw will take place on 22 November in Switzerland. Teams can also gain entry to the Euro 2020 qualifiers through the UEFA Nations League.

Scotland will miss out on a top two finish to Belgium and Russia but have a chance as they won their Nations League. This allows Steve Clarke’s men a way in through the back door.
The teams that could appear in the play-off round, as it stands, are as follows:
Switzerland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Kosovo.

  • A: Switzerland, Iceland, Bulgaria/Israel/Romania
  • B: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Wales, Slovakia, Northern Ireland
  • C: Scotland, Norway, Serbia, Bulgaria/Israel/Romania
  • D: Georgia, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Belarus

European championship 2020 qualifying play off: how it works

Some teams have already secured their Euro 2020 qualifiers play-off spot, either by winning their Nations League, while others are on-course and can start making plans due to the fact they will, more than likely, finish second in their group.

At present, if nothing changes in terms of standings, the play-off pots could look like this:

  • A: Switzerland, Iceland, Bulgaria/Israel/Romania
  • B: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Wales, Slovakia, Northern Ireland
  • C: Scotland, Norway, Serbia, Bulgaria/Israel/Romania
  • D: Georgia, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Belarus

Scotland endured a horrid time during their Euro 2020 qualifiers and have won only three of their first eight. They will finish behind Belgium – expected winners – and Russia – expected runners up but will drop into the play-offs through the Nations League. Could they come through Euro 2020 qualifying?

Kosovo are involved in Euro 2020 qualifiers Group A with England and Czech Republic. They can still win the pool but won’t. They have a chance of finishing second.

Wales have been poor but aren’t out of it yet. They are unbeaten in three and have four points to find to match Hungary in second. That one’s still live.

Norway have lost only once so far in the Euro 2020 qualifiers but draws have stunted their progress. They have a few options, one being covering the four-gap to Sweden in second.

Northern Ireland have fought tooth and nail in a tough Euro 2020 qualifiers group but have lost their last two and sit behind Holland and Germany. They will need more of that same fighting spirit and a generous helping of luck to be at Euro 2020.

Euro 2020 qualifying predictions & tips

England face a crucial match against Montenegro in London on 14 November and a victory would see them take a huge leap towards qualification. They are three points ahead of Czech Republic with six to play for. A win next time out would put them within touching distance. Who are you picking in your Euro 2020 betting tips?

It will be a nervy night, but the locals are expected to get the job done. If betting on that match it’s worth noting England won 5-1 in the reverse of this fixture back in March. The team stats tell us these rivals have played five times previously and Montenegro have never won. Decide your Euro 2020 qualifying correct score bets now.
