    Euro 2012 Bookies

    Who's your cash going on then?

    I'm sorely tempted to have a punt on France - reckon they're massively under-rated by the bookies.

    Will definitely be putting cash on Germany - I suspect with Barcelona's recent form that this will be a tournament too far for Spain. They'll go deep in the tournament but I'm not convinced that their key players will have enough in the tank to get over the line.

    Yea surely Spain can't fluke another tournament after their jam-laden World Cup campaign.

    Germany overwhelming favourites for me.

    Denmark 108/1


    Even allowing for the patrioric punter England are comically bad value there. Italy look the value to me, but the winner's goona come from the first three.

    Pretty long odds for Republic of Ireland. They are always pretty tough to beat. If I were a gambling man I might be tempted to see what the odds of them qualifying from their group are as Spain and Italy are ****e in the group stages. Croatia are fairly crap.

    I think the value will be on us getting a result against Spain. We don't have to shoehorn players with actual talent into the infamous anti-Spain strategy- we've been playing that way by default for years. Most of the skillset everyone notices (i.e. what players can do when their team has the ball) is just irrelevant against them anyway, and we invariably raise our game against big names.

    The big-man-hoof attack is probably what they're most vulnerable to, too. Not to say Spain aren't massive favourites but it's about as good a strategical match-up as we could possibly have.
