Euro 2020 Group D Best Odds & Betting Tips
The Three Lions find themselves in a tough European Championships group which also contains Croatia, Scotland and the Czech Republic, however will Gareth Southgate’s men proceed through Group D intact? The bookies certainly think so!
England are huge favourites to qualify from Group D and most pundits expect Gareth Southgate’s men to coast through with few problems along the way. Beaten 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia are expected to secure the runners-up position and the straight forecast for these two sides comes in at a healthy 2/1.
The fact that Croatia reached the finals of the 2018 World Cup should fool no-one, this now being an aged side with a couple of recent retirements and far removed from the team which impressed in Russia three years ago. In contrast, England have a wealth of hugely promising youngsters heading through the ranks and we expect them to shine on this big stage. It remains to be seen how they progress in the knockout stages (on the assumption that they do make it past the group stage) but we envisage the Three Lions winning Group D without too many problems.
The quality of this England squad is reflected in the mealy odds of 1/2 on them finishing in pole position and the 1/50 on offer for them to qualify, however question marks remain regarding defence given that Harry Maguire is unlikely to play a part at the start of the competition.
Scotland are coming to terms with the fact that they are appearing in their first major international competition since the 1998 World Cup and given how the group stages have been structured, there is a decent chance of them making it to the knockout stages, the bookies going 11/8 that they achieve this aim. Indeed three points against the Czech Republic in their opening game could set them well on the path to the next phase.
The Czech Republic are Evens to qualify from the group but most punters fancy Scotland’s chances in this one. The Scots are Evens to finish in last place however and Croatia are 5/1 for the same if you believe that they will underperform in the coming weeks.
