Euro 2016 is nearly here and it’s going to be a punter’s dream!

It’s the most popular sport on the planet and generates by far the most money in the gambling industry. Football (soccer) betting has come a long way since the days of minimum trebles and pools betting and that’s music to our ears!

You can bet on matches at the highest level all the way down to 4th tier Israeli football. The choice of matches and markets both pre-match and Live is superb and the bookies increased focus on customer experience has meant that betting on football is extremely fun and can also be very profitable!

You may have heard in the news that the bookies got stung by some massive payouts on Leicester City winning the Premier League at 5000/1, and while that might be true it doesn’t tell the whole story. Over the course of the season the bookies would have had some massive results go their way. Defending Champions Chelsea have massively under-performed, Manchester City were also well below expectations and Man United and Liverpool lost enough games to hurt the punters.

Our favourite moment of the 2016 season…

The domestic season may be coming to an end, but now we have Euro 2016 to look forward to! It’s been expanded to 24 teams this year and 16 of those will be advancing from the Group stages to the knockouts.

It’s a very open tournament and a case can be made for many teams. Hosts France have some fantastic young talent at their disposal with the likes of Paul Pogba, Dimitri Payet, Antoine Griezmann and Kingsley Coman to choose from. World Champions Germany may have underwhelmed since their triumph in Brazil, but their team is full of experience and talent and are surely a safe bet for the semi finals at least.

And what of England? Roy Hodgson has some exciting options in midfield and up front and will have some tough decisions to make with his starting XI selections. However, he is not so blessed in defence with the Centre Half positions looking particularly vulnerable. Chris Smalling is a certain starter and deservedly so after a good season at Man United. He will most likely partner Gary Cahill, but Cahill has been part of a poor Chelsea rearguard this season and is often exposed by strikers of the highest calibre.

John Stones has been touted as England’s next big thing, but has endured a horrendous season at Everton with his confidence shattered by speculation over a move to Chelsea and being dropped by the now sacked Roberto Martinez.

England could be involved in some exciting high scoring matches in France this summer!
