The Euro 2012 fever is heating up with the tournament set to begin in just over a week on June 8th, 2012 with Poland and Germany kicking things off in Group A. The tournament will then last until the first of July when a new European champion is crowned.
Spain goes into this tournament as the favorites to defend their European title from 2008 and to make history as the first team to win 3 major tournaments consecutively, which of course includes their 1-0 World Cup victory over the Netherlands from 2 years ago. Germany was the team they defeated in the Euro 2008 final and Germany and the Netherlands are the 2nd and 3rd favorites to win Euro 2012, which shows that the European football landscape hasn’t changed too much over the past half decade.
The Euro 2012 tournament is such a high profile event that every online sportsbook will offer endless betting options for the tournament. That being said Bet365.com is our recommended online bookie for bettors from around the world, while BetOnline.ag is our recommended sportsbook for Americans (Bet365 does not accept Americans). Both of these sportsbooks are respected and trusted and offer a ton of great Euro 2012 betting options.
Euro 2012 Winner Odds
It’s a lot of fun to bet on the team you think will win the tourney and follow them through every game on their way to the finals. Here are the odds for each of the 16 teams to win Euro 2012 from Bet365.com.
- Spain +270
- Germany +300
- Netherlands +650
- England +1000
- France +1100
- Italy +1400
- Portugal +1800
- Russia +2500

As you can see Spain and Germany are big favorites with the Netherlands right on their heels. However with Germany and Holland both in the same group (B) one slip up early could cause either team to be eliminated in the group stage.
