The English are the big favorites to win Group D at -250 odds on 888sport, but could that be a bit presumptuous of the oddsmakers? This group will also include the Croatians, who beat the Three Lions in extra time of their World Cup semi final in 2018, as well as England’s surly Scottish neighbors to the North and the Czech Republic squad who beat the English in the qualifying stage. This group is one of the toughest to call in all of Euro 2020, with all three teams making a good case for upsetting the favored English even if the Three Lions play all three of their games at Wembley in London. Scotland will also have two home games in Glasgow at Hampden Park, so that Group D will be playing all six of its games in Britain. England Led by Gareth Souhtgate on the touchline, this youthful group won an easy Euro 2020 qualification group, though they did drop one game to the Czech Republic, who they will have to take on again this summer. Alongside Belgium, England is sitting at the top of the odds table as the +500 favorites to win the whole Euro 2020. England has not come into a tournament with expectations this high in a few years, since the disappointing days of Beckham-Gerrard-Lampard and company. While England’s current squad, led by Harry Kane, should manage to win this group, a matchup with the runner up from the Group of Death in the Round of 16 somewhat complicates their trophy-hoisting aspirations. Croatia Croatia was the toast of the 2018 World Cup after their glittering run to the Final, but they haven’t been in quite the same form since. They won a weak Euro qualifying group—but just barely. They drew with Wales and Azerbaijan while also losing to Hungary. Not exactly the type of quality they exhibited in dispatching the English in 2018. Like they did at that last World Cup in Russia, the Croatians will be looking to play spoiler for England once again, though the aging core, including 35-year-old Luka Modric and 31-year-old Ivan Perisic, may not be up to the task again. They should be able to snag the second spot in Group D, however, which would set them up nicely for a Round of 16 date with the runner up of the weak Group E. If the Croatians can get hot, we could see another deep run for the Blazers this summer. Scotland Participating in their first major competition of the new millennium, these Scotsman will be frothing at the mouth to get back onto the pitch for a game as big as the Euro 2020 has to offer. And they’re not coming empty-handed either. In Andrew Robertson of Liverpool and Kieran Tierney of Arsenal the Tartan Army have two of the best full backs in the English Premier League along for the ride. They’ve been dropped into a tough group, but with two home games at Hampden and (hopefully) masses of Scotsman coming to show their love and support, the squad should be able to muster up enough points to sneak into the knockout stage as a third-place team. Czech Republic The Czech Republic seems like they could be the forgotten team of Group D, what with two host countries and the surprise story of the 2018 World Cup populating the rest of the group. They don’t have Petr Cech roaming the goal line anymore, but they’ve got some decent talent to trot out there in England and Scotland. Though they did manage to defeat the English in the qualifying stage, we at BetPicks are wagering that they won’t do so again, finishing as the only team from the group not to advance. Betting On Group D This group is not nearly as clear-cut as the oddsmakers are making it out to be with England as -250 odds favorites on 888sport, so it wouldn’t be very profitable to take on that market. However, if you believe the English could break the curse and go all the way this year, +500 odds should do you good. Our England money is on captain Kane to lead the Group D in goals, though. Apart from that, Croatia should be a shoo-in to at least make the knockout stage if not the quarter-finals, while the young and scrappy Scots should have some very attractive odds for qualification into the Round of 16 as well.
