How to Use Your Free Bet on Euro 2020

If you’re looking for a bet on pretty much any aspect of Euro 2020, then you won’t be disappointed. There are a wide variety of bets available on each and every one of the games that takes place, right through from the group stages to the final. You can also bet on who will win each of the groups, whether teams will qualify for the finals and of course who'll become European Champions in 2020.

Here's some ways in which you can use your free bets on Euro 2020

  • Tournament winner
  • Will teams qualify for the finals
  • Will teams fail to qualify for the finals
  • Group Winners 
  • England's stage of elimination
  • Finishing in the top two in their qualifying group
  • Individual match betting
  • First Goalscorer
  • Correct Score
  • Half-Time/Full-Time
  • Both Teams to Score
  • Tournament/ Winner top goalscorer double

Euro 2020 Format

The draw for the finals established six groups of four teams who will play each other on a round robin basis. Tournaments are more suited to 16 or 32 teams and a clear structure but adding 8 qualifiers has muddied the waters in the context of the draw. As is the tradition with four team groups in soccer tournaments the top two teams progress which is clear. However, the four best third placed teams from the groups also move forward to the elimination phase.

Bettors could use their free bets to back teams to win their group or qualify for the next round. There is more scope for teams winning the same number of points so punters should be aware how the final group standings will be determined. If teams are level on points their relative positions are determined by the following outcomes in the order listed below:

  • Points won in matches between equal teams
  • Goal difference in these matches
  • Goals scored in these matches
  • Goal difference in group matches
  • Goals scored in group matches
  • Fair play record
  • UEFA coefficient rankings

We should be aware of these criteria when betting on group winners or teams to finish in the qualifying positions at the group stage. The knockout rounds are pre-ordained which means teams with the best records in the groups will play teams with inferior records in the round of the last 16. In theory it is possible to project opponents in successive rounds and this information is useful if betting on the stage of elimination of the competing teams.  Any one team can only have the same opponents more than once if they have been drawn in the same group and both qualify for the final.
