Euro 2024 Outright tip

Portugal to win Euro 2024 - 13/2

Defensive injuries and a friendly defeat to Iceland have tempered the expectations surrounding Euro 2024 favourites England so Portugal look the value alternative to the Three Lions.

England, France and hosts Germany have all named eye-catching squads but Portugal look just as strong and perhaps better-balanced than the market leaders.

They won all 10 of their qualifying matches and have a decent draw alongside Turkey, the Czech Republic and Georgia in Group F.

A midfield featuring Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and Joao Palhinha is one of the best at the tournament, while Diogo Jota, Pedro Neto, Joao Felix and Rafael Leao are brilliant options out wide.

Cristiano Ronaldo warmed up for the tournament with a brace against the Republic of Ireland but even he is not guaranteed a starting spot as PSG striker Goncalo Ramos scored a hat-trick in the 6-1 last-16 rout of Switzerland at the last World Cup.

A defence built around Manchester City rock Ruben Dias kept nine clean sheets in 10 qualifiers and Roberto Martinez's men could emulate Portugal's 2016 European champions.

Euro 2024 Highest Scoring Team tip

France to be Highest Scoring Team - 7/2

France have to be respected, having reached the final in three of their last four major tournaments under Didier Deschamps.

They beat Croatia 4-2 to lift the World Cup in 2018 and lost to Argentina on penalties four years later after a thrilling 3-3 draw in which Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick.

The Real Madrid-bound star is a worthy favourite for the Golden Boot at the Euros and France's supporting cast is also pretty special, with Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann pulling the strings and record goalscorer Olivier Giroud still a force up front.

France should be backed to be the highest-scoring team in the tournament, having racked up 29 goals in 10 qualifying matches, including 4-0 and 2-1 wins over the Netherlands, one of the sides they face in Group D.

Les Bleus were the leading goalscorers at Euro 2016 and the 2022 World Cup and only Portugal outscored them during Euro 2024 qualifying.

Euro 2024 Player of the Tournament tip

Bruno Fernandes to be UEFA Player of the Tournament - 33/1

Following on from the Portugal outright tip, playmaker Fernandes looks a big runner in the UEFA Player of the Tournament market.

The Manchester United man signed off the club season with a dazzling display in the FA Cup final against Manchester City and contributed six goals and eight assists in Portugal's 10 Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Fernandes was excellent at the 2022 World Cup, with two goals and three assists in four outings, and has created the most 'big chances' in each of the last two Premier League seasons.

Euro 2024 Goals tip

Austria Over 3.5 Goals - 4/6

Austria, coached by former Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick, are up against France, the Netherlands and Poland in Group D but they come into the Euros in fine form.

They drew 1-1 with Switzerland in their final friendly, having scored at least twice in seven of their previous eight internationals, including a 6-1 rout of Turkey in March.

Austria have a powerful midfield including Borussia Dortmund's Marcel Sabitzer, Bayern Munich's Konrad Laimer and RB Leipzig's Christoph Baumgartner, who has scored in their last five matches.

They beat Germany 2-0 in a friendly last November and will fancy their chances of a top-two finish, probably at the expense of the Dutch, so over 3.5 Austria goals looks a solid tournament bet.
