|All discussion relating to the (next) big one including qualifying groups/matches.
Due to my work I've been to a few preview nights of the Euros and I think there's some big value out there people might miss.
Poland - 50/1
Lewandowski is the only true World Class player in the tournament and they have some extremely talented players supporting him. Each way at 50/1 is well worth a go as they could surprise a few.
Croatia - 28/1
Arguably the strongest midfield in the tournament and may take Spain for top spot which would definitely put them on the more favourable side of the draw. Another each wayer.
Spain - 11/2
Same reasons as Croatia, if Spain take top spot as expected they meet no one of note, probably until the final (I include England as "no one of note"). Definitely the best value of the favourites.
Alvaro Morata - 20/1
If Spain are to have a good tournament, this man is their main striker. Great finisher and really peaking in his career. A better value option than the usual protagonists.
Eden Hazard - 50/1
Not the most obvious however, if you were going to back Hazard as player of the tournament you'd only get a fraction of this price. He's their talisman and, most importantly, their penalty taker.
Hungary to lose all games - 5/1
I think this is far too generous a price considering each team in their group is stronger than them. Iceland have enough to beat them and the other two and head and shoulders above them.
Bogdan Stancu to be Romanian top scorer - 9/2
A Football Manager Legend who's had a great season domestically and looking at moving to Italy. Good value for their likely talisman.
Alfred Finnbogason to be Iceland top scorer - 6/1
All the attention is on Sigurdsson because he plays over here however Alfred (for short) scored 6 Bundesliga goals at the end of last season and will likely start up top.
Please excuse the ramblings, I hope some of the above was interesting and we make a few quid off them!
Agree with there being some good offers out there, I really don't see France as favourites
I think the final is going to be Germany vs Spain
I got 50/1 on Morata top scorer and Spain to win the tournament. Also 66/1 on Germany to win and Gotze to finish top scorer (odds were not particularly great on Muller so opted for Gotze)
You don't think Ronaldo or Zlatan are true world class?
Think a lot on here opted for 25/1 for Payet player of the tournament. Personally I can't see it, it's no guarantee he will start for them and I'm not sure he carries a big enough name to actually get the vote unless he is truly miles ahead of all others.
Payet to score a free kick, Ronaldo and Rooney to score a penalty. 40/1 sky bet
We all know payets deadly with his free kicks, and will shoot each and every one that is in range. Ronaldo and Rooney both have w good chance I feel of a penalty considering some of the teams they are going to come up against in the groups.
Payet to score 2 or more free kicks 20/1 sky bet
Again as above, and France have some players very good with the ball who will be running at people. Although I don't think this is something that will of happened much in tournament history.
Koscielny, Ramos and Cahill all to score a goal. 40/1 sky bet
All of these like to get forward and get there head to a ball. Ramos loves a goal in the big games, kosc is getting on the end if payets deliveries, my biggest worry if the 3 is Cahill because of England's delivery into the box.
Sky bet are offering a £3 free bet for each game your team wins if you place a bet on the tournament winner.
Portugal are my dark horses, they beat Serbia 7-0 last night and with the quality they have would not rule them out. Semi finalist at least i teckon 14/1 at the moment with allmarkets better odds than England
Since when did Estonia turn into Serbia? Huge difference.
My bets, make of them what you will (all Ladbrokes)

Good luck everyone!
Iceland to lose in the semi finals. 28/1
Payet player of the tournament. 25/1
Giroud top scorer. 12/1
Ronaldo top scorer 8/1.
Both in easy groups. Should be in the running by the knockouts. Iceland a fun bet because I ****ing love that country and will be supporting them.
England to win @9/1
Muller top scorer @8/1
Giroud top scorer @16/1
Payet top player @25/1
Also done a group accumulator of France, Germany, Spain, England, Italy and Austria @40/1.
Oh and also got Belgium in the sweepstake at work!
I've got Italy to complete a treble (Ukraine for Eurovision and Hull for the play-offs are already in). Just a fun bet, and I know it's a weak Italian team, but 28/1 for Italy was a massive price. Anyway, my little £2 fun bet would pay £360 if it came in.
I got £20 @ 25/1 Payet player of the tournament
England (yes I know I should know better) £50 @ 17/2
Outside bets Italy £20 @ 16/1 and Turkey £10 @80/1
Good luck all
This is already looking good, especially with the rumours that Vardy has been dropped.
