Euro 2021 Belgium Odds to Win the Group Ranking
If you’re looking to place a pre-tournament wager on the group B Euro 2021 winner, the early money is on Belgium. Most of the leading bookies have them priced well below evens at the moment. That might not represent tremendous value to some punters, but given that this team is head and shoulders above the others, these are great odds. Therefore, they rightly deserve the group B Euro 2021 favourites label as things currently stand.
It will be worth considering the players’ current form as they enter the tournament. Lukaku has been successful at Inter Milan, Hazard is now settling in at Madrid and Kevin de Bruyne consistently shows his class for Man City.
Perhaps, their main weakness is their defence now that Kompany has retired. As we said, this is what makes betting on group B Euro 2021 very interesting because there are several variables to consider.
Match Schedule Group B
Generally, major football tournaments are hosted in one country (sometimes there are two). Euro 2021 has broken the mould. Twelve major cities are hosting this tournament which gets underway on Friday 11th of June.
The real fun of betting on Euro 2021 group B begins the following day when the first set of matches kick-off. It sees Denmark take on Scandinavian neighbours Finland (18:00, Copenhagen) and Belgium face Russia in St Petersburg later that evening (21:00).
The next game, Finland vs Russia is on Wednesday the 16th of June. Again, this is in St Petersburg which will certainly boost the home team. A day later, Belgium meets Denmark in Copenhagen.
The last chance for betting on Euro 2021 group B before the Round of 16 is on Monday 21st of June when Russia play Denmark in Copenhagen and Belgium face Finland in St Petersburg.
Standings Overview Euro 2021 Group B
Both Denmark and Russia have previously won this tournament, but the current group B Euro 2021 favourites are Belgium. This is not surprising given their stellar World Cup performance and having a host of top-quality players within their squad.
However, what makes betting on Euro 2021 group B intriguing is the fact that all the games are being played in Denmark or Russia. This will undoubtedly boost the Danes who play all of their matches on home soil. Russia will also benefit from two matches in St Petersburg.
Another variable to consider is the travelling distances. Finland play Denmark in Copenhagen on Saturday (12th) and then face Russia four days later in St Petersburg. Effectively, a whole day will be lost due to travel, and this is something you must account for when betting on Euro 2021 group B.
Group B of Euro 2021: Analysis
The bookies may have their Euro 2021 group B odds on Belgium, but there are several potential challenges on the cards in this group. For punters, that means many interesting betting opportunities. Here’s a quick overview of the other countries.
🇩🇰 Denmark Euro 2020 – 2021
After assessing the Euro 2021 group B odds across all of the major online bookmakers, the general consensus has Denmark as the second favourites. Having gone unbeaten in the qualifiers, confidence will be high in the camp. Furthermore, they are the only country playing every group match on home soil. So, no travel hassles and partisan crowds.
Could this be enough to push them on to be the group B Euro 2021 winner? A lot will depend on star player Christen Eriksen. His early-season form for Tottenham Hotspur is a concern in our opinion.
🇷🇺 Russia Euro 2020 – 2021
When betting on Euro 2021 group B, never write off Russia. They played well throughout the qualifying round, scoring 33 goals in their ten matches, with Artem Dzyuba smashing in 9 of them. This striker also plays for Zenit St Petersburg so he will know every blade of turf for the country’s two home matches.
As third favourites in the group betting odds, they could represent good value if all their players are fit.
🇫🇮 Finland Euro 2020 – 2021
Enter the unknown entity. This is Finland’s first-ever major football tournament. With Teemu Pukki leading the line, they have a player who can score goals at the highest level. Ultimately, Finland has nothing to lose. If they play with that mindset and the freedom that comes with it, then who knows what might happen.
In terms of betting on Euro 2021 group B, we cannot see Finland winning the group. Qualifying for the Round of 16 is also a tall order, but we expect them to cause a shock somewhere. Check out our bookies for the latest match odds to find the best value.
