Who is your favorite to win the Euro 2016?
The favorite teams to win the Euro 2016 are clearly those seeded in Pot 1: France – Spain – Germany – England – Portugal – Belgium. While Albania and Iceland that have never participated in a major tournament in their history, and this is their first time ever qualifying to the UEFA European Championship tournament, are seeded in Pot 4 and are of course the underdogs. Group A has a favorite in France as the local team with solid odds of -375. England is at the head of Group B with -140. Group C’s favorite is Germany with -300. Group D is considered by many the group of death and Spain is the team to beat, currently odds show Spain at – 185. Group E are another tough group as it presents interesting and difficult matches with Belgium standing as the favorite with even odds. Lastly, Group F has Portugal sitting comfortably at top with Austria presenting the biggest challenge for them.
