This Friday over in Europe the qualifications will begin for UEFA Euro 2012 which will be shared by Poland and Ukraine, and Sportsbet is the place for the best early market odds.
So if you are missing out on the World Cup betting action, don’t worry as now there is a replacement!
Our tip for Euro 2012 is to back Germany to win at $6.50.
The newly crowned World Champions Spain are favourites for the win at $4.50. The Spanish were superb throughout the tournament, but one issue which may face them is age.
It’s surprising to see the 2010 World Cup runners up the Netherlands so long in the odds. They are at $9 for the win and saw some players emerge as truly world class.
Our tip for Euro 2012 is to back Germany to win at $6.50. They were fantastic in South Africa, and boasted such a young squad which will only improve for Euro 2012.
Italy crashed out in the first round of the World Cup, only managing two draws in the Group stage. They are at $7 for the win, but will have to make a lot of changes to both the squad and the managerial team to overcome the odds.
The same can be said for the highly disappointing performance of England. They are at $10 for the Euro 2012 win, but will certainly have to bring in some fresh blood to hope to contend with the current World Champions.
With qualification underway this weekend, online bookmakers are also offering soccer betting fans the opportunity to pick the qualification group winners.
Spain is the safest punt at $1.14 to win Group I, while Germany are close behind at $1.33 for Group A.
Early market odds are the most lucrative you will get in soccer betting, so make sure you make the most of them. Head over and back the side you believe will emerge as European Champions in 2012.
