Football is causing a commotion in the online sportsbetting world once again. Shortly after recovering from the excitement of the South Africa World Cup, the first qualifying matches for Euro 2012 will take place.
Spain, Germany and Holland are obviously the favorites to win the 14th edition of the competition which will take place in Poland and Ukraine next year. Spain, champion of the world, has odds of 7 / 2 winning it all on most sportbetting websites. Some, however, are not sure this team will keep the European title it won in 2008, the team’s spirit and performance during the 2010 World Cup gives confidence to the bettors.
Germany has won three times but has lost three times in the final. The team’s odds of winning vary from 4 / 1 to 9 / 2 and even 5/1 on sportsbetting sites. As for France, it seems as though Laurent Blanc’s team has pulled themselves together after the fiasco in South Africa. Although France was beaten 1-0 by Bosnia earlier this week, the team seems to be showing some promise with its recent 2-0 victory over Belarus.
