England and France are odds-on favorites to win Euro 2024

Oddsmakers list Gareth Southgate's England squad as the 3/1 favorite to win the tournament, despite a recent loss to Iceland in a tune-up match. The Three Lions reached the final of Euro 2020 before falling to Italy in a penalty shootout. They have also reached a World Cup semifinal under Southgate, but they've failed to lift any meaningful silverware.

England has a fairly easy group to advance from with Denmark, Serbia and Slovenia making up Group C. However, the reigning runners-up shouldn't take anything for granted having only beaten one of Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Iceland and North Macedonia in their last five friendlies.

The reigning World Cup runner-up, France, has the second-shortest odds to win the tournament (+380). This iteration of Didier Deschamps' team is perceived as weaker than the World Cup giants of recent years. Nevertheless, Kylian Mbappe looks to lead Les Bleus' lethal attack to bring home the country's first European Championship trophy since 2000.

If not for a tough draw in the group stage (Group D with Austria, Netherlands and Poland), France would likely be the betting favorite.

The host nation, Germany, has +430 odds to break a drought at the Euros that spans even longer than France's. Die Nationalmannschaft hasn't won this tournament since 1996. However, there is a lot of enthusiasm about Nagelsmann's squad heading in.

Germany is unbeaten in its last four matches against excellent competition. It earned wins over France, Greece and the Netherlands while drawing with Ukraine this calendar year alone.?Die Nationalmannschaft is the largest chalk favorite to win any group at FanDuel Sportsbook. Germany is -280 to get out of Group A, which consists of Hungary, Scotland and Switzerland.

Other potential winners include Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal (+650), Spain (+750) and the reigning champion, Italy (+1800). Here are the odds for each team to win the tournament via FanDuel Sportsbook as of June 10, 2024:
