After weeks of exciting soccer action, the 2020 UEFA Euro Cup will finally be decided this weekend.
Few matchups come as big as this one as Italy and England will face each other to decide which country deserves the right to take home the championship. For the English, this is their first time playing in a European Championship final. It may seem hard to believe, especially with England’s soccer history, but it’s true. When it comes to the Italians, they last made it to the finals in 2012, but haven’t actually won since 1968 — 53 years ago. In other words, both countries have valid claims to winning this weekend.
With that being said, with how big the UEFA Euro Cup always is, it’s not surprising that sports bettors will be getting in on the finals action. With a lot of information to take in, this guide has everything you need to know when it comes to watching and betting on the 2020 Euro Cup finals.

How to Bet on the 2020 Euros
The first step to getting involved in betting on the UEFA Euro Cup is by creating an online sportsbook account. With dozens of options out there, including some of USGS’ trusted partners, finding an option that works for you has never been easier. Once you’ve figured out your perfect option, you can get in on the action.
However, with a lot of different markets out there, things can be intimidating. Here’s a look at some of the more popular betting options.
- Moneyline: All you have to do is choose whether Italy or England will win the match, or if it’ll be a tie.
Spread: A team will be favored to win the match by a specific number of goals. You then have to choose if they’ll cover that spread or not.
- Total: A total number of goals for the game has been given. You then choose if England and Italy will combine to score more (over) or fewer (under) goals than that number.
- Props: Prop bets don’t always have to do with the outcome of a game. Some might do with the exact number of goals scored while another might be correctly guessing the match’s first goal-scorer.
All UEFA Euro Cup odds come with an indicator that tells you how much you can win. If there’s a positive (+) sign beside the odds, that’s how much money you can win if you bet $100.
- $100 bet at +165 odds for England = $165 win
If the number has a negative (-) sign, that’s how much money you need to wager to win $100.
- $115 bet on under 2.0 goals at -115 odds = $100 win
