Looking to bet on one of the most exhilarating soccer competitions in the world? Then look no further than the UEFA European Championships or The Euros as they are also affectionately known as. Since 1960, the European Championships have been held every four years in the even-numbered years between the FUFA World Cup tournaments, and feature the senior men’s national teams from members of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).
Nine different nations have won the 14 European Championship tournaments to date, with Germany and Spain tied on three victories each, Spain being the reigning champions after demolishing Italy 4-0 in Kiev in the Euro 2012 final.
The 2016 European Championships are held in France and feature 24 teams. Online sports betting sites around the world seem to believe the competition will be won by one of three teams with Germany being the early favorites, narrowly favoured over hosts France, then Spain. However, the European Championships often throw up surprise results as was the case in 2004 when Greece came out on top to win the competition outright.
Will one of the three favorites win the 2016 European Championships, or will it again be an outsider who lifts the coveted trophy? Are you willing to bet money on the outcome? If so, you will find plenty of information about Euro 2016 right here on this page.

How To Make Money At Euro 2016
With the draw for the group stages of the 2016 European Championships having been made so it is possible to start gauging who is going to have an easier ride than their rivals. Hosts France have arguably one of the easier groups, one containing Albania, Romania, and Switzerland, so expect them to top their group with relative ease.
Outsiders England, who won all 10 of their matches during their qualifying campaign, are in Group B with Russia, Slovakia, and Wales. While England has a talented squad of players to choose from, their record in the finals of major competitions leaves a lot to be desired.
Favorites Germany lock horns with Northern Ireland, Poland, and Ukraine, while Group E is this tournament’s so-called Group of Death featuring Belgium, Italy, Republic of Ireland, and Sweden.
When Spain won The Euros in 2012, they became the first team to retain the trophy, having also won it in 2008. Do you think they can make it three consecutive European Championship titles? If you do, you know where to go to place a bet on that outcome.
