Euro 2012 play-off betting
The European Championships offer some brilliant chances to take advantage of some brilliant betting.
But even before the championships begin there are some brilliant Euro 2012 play-off betting odds available…
Spain were always worth backing in the Euro 2012 play-off betting
There can be no doubt that the current Spain side are one of the greatest international sides in history.
And, because of this, the Euro 2012 play-off odds were stacked in their favour.
As they were top seeds, their qualification group for the Euro 2012 was very straightforward and they easily negotiated a group that contained Scotland, the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Liechtenstein.
Their Euro 2012 play-off betting odds were extremely short and you can bet on their odds to win the tournament will also be short.
However, no matter how short the odds on Spain are, they will always be worth considering because of the sheer amount of quality they possess.
England often have a rollercoaster qualifying campaign
Even though England have been solid in their most recent qualifying campaign, making their Euro 2012 play-off odds rather short, it hasn’t always been as easy.
The last time they attempted to qualify for the European Championships ended in massive disappointment when they failed to make the 2008 tournament.
With boss Steve McClaren at the helm, England were poor in qualifying but still did enough to only need a draw in their final game against Croatia at Wembley.
However, even with the odds stacked in their favour, England still lost and McClaren was sacked to be replaced by Fabio Capello.
Capello may not have covered himself in glory at the 2010 World Cup, but there’s no doubt he’s adept at getting England to major international finals.
