England are favorites on every single game; they are also listed 1.83 to win Group B. The English hadn’t reached the semifinals since 1996 when they hosted the tournament, and they haven’t won it. Their generation of players is exciting, but they will always be questions around this squad until they show something we haven’t seen before. Take a look at England Odds to win the Euro 2016.
Second to England is Russia, rated at 4.33 to win Group B. Their best participation was in 1960 as the Soviet Union. Since they become Russia, their best chance came in 2008 when they lost in the semifinals to Spain.
Wales are listed 4.5 to win the zone. Of course, they haven’t had success in recent years but having a golden generation of players led by Gareth Bale will give them unprecedented hope. This is Wales first Euro participation since 1976.
“Preparations are going brilliantly and I’ve met with [captain] Ashley Williams recently who is chomping at the bit,” revealed manager Chris Coleman. “Our strength is our togetherness. Having good players doesn’t win you anything, you need the mentality.”
The last rated team is Slovakia, which are 10.0 to win the group. They have registered participations as Czechoslovakia, but never as Slovakia. Mark Hamsik, Napoli’s playmaker, is the team’s best hope for success. They will be hard to beat, but it’s complicated to think they will win the zone.
