Euros Outright Odds: France still favourites despite Dortmund defeat

France remain the favourites to win the Euros in Germany next summer, despite suffering a 2-1 defeat to the tournament hosts in Dortmund on Tuesday night.

Not too much can be read into friendly encounters at this time of the season and looking at France’s recent qualifying record in competitive matches, it’s easy to see why Les Bleus seem to be the team to beat.


Current outright odds - 4/1

After narrowly missing out on winning the 2022 World Cup, it's no surprise to see France as the favourites for the Euros.

The French have won all five of their Group B qualifying matches, in a group that includes the likes of the Netherlands, Greece, Republic of Ireland and Gibraltar.

A 2-1 defeat to Germany on Tuesday night in an international friendly was only a minor setback for manager Didier Deschamps, who got a chance to see some fringe players in action.

It was a competitive squad that took the field in Dortmund, but with some key players left on the bench, including superstar Kylian Mbappe, who did not feature.

France have big tournament experience after almost winning back-to-back world titles and are the shortest price to go all the way at Euro 2024 next summer.


Current outright odds - 9/2

England suffered World Cup heartbreak at the hands of France at the last major tournament in Qatar and will be looking to end their wait for silverware at this next European Championship.

Reaching the final of the last Euros, only to lose on penalties to Italy in the final at Wembley, England boss Gareth Southgate and his side know what it takes to go on a run in this competition.

The Three Lions now boast a new superstar of their own, with Jude Bellingham making a flying start to the season with new club Real Madrid.

Bellingham shone in Glasgow on Tuesday night, as he scored in England’s 3-1 win over old rivals Scotland in an international friendly.

Bellingham, Phil Foden and Harry Kane all got on the scoresheet at Hampden Park, as England showed their class against an improving Scotland side that also have their own hopes of reaching the Euros.

England’s potential has been talked about for decades and they have come close to some major titles in recent years.

Germany 2024 would be the perfect time to deliver.


Current outright odds - 7/1

Germany ran out 2-1 winners over the French this week, but that result might just be papering over the cracks of a much bigger problem.

Hansi Flick became the first Germany manager - since the role was created in 1929 - to be sacked earlier this week, after a disappointing run of results on the back of an early exit from the 2022 World Cup.

The national side are now looking for a new manager to take them into the European Championships on home soil, with former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann thought to be among the contenders for the position.

Given their current form, it seems like home advantage is the only real reason why this Germany side are the third favourites in the Outright market to lift the trophy next summer.


Current outright odds - 8/1

Spain are starting to find their rhythm in qualifying, as they look to narrow the gap on Group A front-runners Scotland.

After a shock defeat to the Scots at Hampden Park in March, Spain have responded with Nations League wins over Italy and Croatia, before dismantling Georgia and Cyrpus in qualifiers.

Spain managed to secure a 7-1 victory on the road in Georgia in their first game of the recent international break, before putting Cyprus to the sword with a 6-0 victory in Granada.

La Roja now find themselves six points behind Scotland in Group A, but they do have a game in hand over Steve Clarke’s side.

Spain will fancy their chances of finishing ahead of contenders Norway, who despite beating Georgia 2-1 on Tuesday night, have been struggling for consistency of late to make up ground.

The Spanish will always be a contender when it comes to the European Championships and this side looks to be growing in confidence before the highly-anticipated major tournament.
