 Euro 2008 Betting - Tournament Top Goal Scorer Odds

The top goal scorer betting market at Euro 2008 provides an interesting alternative for those bettors unable to reach a conclusion about who will win the event. Leading online bookmaker PinnacleSports.com have added a unique spin to the standard top scorer market by offering a number of head-to-head Euro 2008 goal scoring markets priced to less than 102%.

Bayern Munich Stars Battle for Goal-Scoring Supremacy

Miroslav Klose has grabbed the Golden Boot at the last two World Cups, and Germany head the outright winners market at PinnacleSports.com priced 2.300*, in their Euro 2008 head-to-head goal scoring matchup – priced to less than 102%.

Torres or Ronaldo - Who’ll Score More At Euro 2008?

PinnacleSports.com also put Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo up against Spain’s Fernando Torres in an Iberian Euro 2008 top scorer head-to-head. Ronaldo enjoyed a record-breaking season scoring 42 goals from midfield, including in the Champions League final, while Torres notched 33 in his first Premiership season. Both Portugal and Spain are expected to prosper at Euro 2008, but despite missing some important penalties, Ronaldo is expected to continue his purple patch, priced 2.090*.

 Euro 2008 Football Betting - Group A Preview

 Kicks Off June 7

Punters are now within touching distance of three weeks of top Euro 2008 soccer betting action. The coaches of the 16 teams qualified for the 2008 UEFA European Championships have named their final squads for the event starting June 7th, and leading online sportsbook, PinnacleSports.com, have for some time posted outright prices and odds for the winners of each Group. PinnacleSports.com are also offering a host of other Euro 2008 bets including Asian Handicap betting and total goals markets for the opening fixtures, priced to just 102% - which gives punters 60% better Euro 2008 betting odds than traditional bookmakers.

Weak Section Could Be Portugal’s For the Taking

Portugal lead the Group A winner’s betting market at PinnacleSports.com priced 2.350* to top the pool phase. The Portuguese possess an enviable pair of wing wizards in Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Nani, but cannot match that quality in the striker department. Though the Portuguese lost just once during Group A qualification, they finished second, having drawn six of their 14 games. Ronaldo was their top-scorer with eight goals, but an unhealthy amount of expectation rests on his young shoulders, and if the opposition can neutralize his threat, coach, Felipe Scolari may struggle with a plan B.

As hosts in 2004, Portugal progressed to the final, and despite being strong favourites, lost out to a single Greek goal. The Portuguese may however, have been flattered in reaching the final, as England had a perfectly good goal ruled out against them in the semi-final. They were also left sweating on qualification for Euro 2008 right up to the final game and key playmaker Deco has had a poor season with Barcelona. Nevertheless PinnacleSports.com make Portugal one of the favourites on their Euro 2008 betting market at 8.600*.

Czech’s Dealt Blow By Rosicky Injury

After topping Group D at the finals of Euro 2004, with three wins, including over Germany and Holland, the Czech Republic became many punters’ favourites to go all the way. In the event they were beaten by a dogged Greek side in an extra time semi-final. Much of their success was the product of the creativity of Tomas Rosicky and Pavel Nedved, and goals of Milan Baros. However, Rosicky is out of the Euro 2008 through injury, Nedved is retired while Baros has struggled to emulate the form he showed in Portugal.

35year old striker Jan Koller is one of several Czech players reaching their sell-by date, so coach, Karel Bruckner, has tried to mix youth with experience. Euro 2008 will be the Czech Republic’s fourth straight European Championship stretching back to Euro 1996 in England when they were surprise finalists, losing to Germany. They qualified this time round ahead of tournament favourites Germany who they beat 3-0 in Munich, but are nevertheless considered unlikely winners priced 3.330* to top Group A.

Turkey Seeking Stability & Composure

Turkey’s third place finish at the 2002 World Cup was an immense achievement that catapulted those players involved to national heroes. Unfortunately, the story since then has failed to match that magic, with failed qualification to the 2006 World Cup marred by violent scenes against Switzerland that ended with several lengthy bans, which will make the rematch potentially fiery. Though some of that volatility remains, coach, Fatih Terim has been able to guide the national side through a tricky qualifying group to the finals in Austria and Switzerland.

A 2-1 victory in Norway was the pivotal result in their penultimate qualifier and if Turkey can show the same resolution at the Euro 2008 finals, they could easily negotiate a path out of an open group. Injury problems have abated leaving Turkey without any major obstacles in preparation. Emre hasn’t had a great season at Newcastle, but the left-footed midfielder is capable of match-winning skill, playing alongside Hamit Altintop who has enjoyed a steady season at Bayern Munich while Tuncay Sanli has steadily improved at Middlesbrough. Volatility is the Turk’s main weakness, part of the reason why PinnacleSports.com price them 8.440* to top Group A.

Swiss Host Hampered By Injuries

Of the two hosts of Euro 2008, the Swiss are certainly considered the likelier to make a real impact on the event. Their chances have however, been dealt a severe blow by a spate of injuries that has ruled out several key players and placed doubts of many more. Tranquillo Barnetta, Christoph Spycher and Philipp Degan all missed the 2-0 friendly win over Slovakia on May 24th, though hopes are high that they will participate in the tournament.

On the plus side, striker, Alexander Frei has returned to form after long-term injury, and much is expected over 19 year old Eren Derdiyok. The 6ft 2” striker, scored within minutes of a substitute appearance at Wembley against England, only his second appearance for the Swiss national side. In common with Austria, Switzerland have lacked competitive football, qualifying as hosts, but their showing at the 2006 World Cup, where they didn’t conceded in open play in four games, shows they are defensively tough, if lacking creativity. PinnacleSports.com price Switzerland 4.780* to win Group A.

 Euro 2008 Bet - Group B Preview

 Kicks Off June 8

With the all the major European domestic leagues and Cup competitions done and dusted, club football now steps out of the limelight, and the focus falls firmly on Euro 2008 betting. The final countdown to the tournament kick-off on June 7th is well underway, so now is the perfect time for punters to analyse the chances of the 16 participating teams then take advantage of up to 60% better Euro 2008 betting odds at PinnacleSports.com.

Germans Worthy Favourites to Top Group B

Germany are worthy favourites in the group betting markets at PinnacleSports.com to top Pool B at Euro 2008. Priced 1.690* they are the shortest team in any of the four group betting markets, reflecting the positive progress of the side from their surprise semi-final appearance in the 2006 World Cup, and the important influence of the strong support they will enjoy. The Germans were top-scorers in qualification, but haven’t won a game at the European Championship finals since winning the trophy at Wembley in 1996 – losing three and drawing three.

Several of coach, Joachim Low’s key players should arrive fresh for their opening game against Poland in Klagenfurt. Michael Ballack, Torsten Frings, Tim Borowski, Lukas Podolski and Christoph Metzelder have all only recently returned from long-term injury, so as long as they have recovered full fitness, should give the Germans extra vitality. It has been suggested that Greece’s success in Euro 2004 was in part due to similar circumstances and PinnacleSports.com make Germany favourites 5.110*.

Avoiding Early Exit Austria’s Main Ambition

Austria coach, Josef Hickersberger, has arguably the toughest job at Euro 2008. He has to mould a squad of very average players into a winning unit, that can avoid the embarrassment of an early exit despite the benefit of home support. Having both played and coached at World Cup finals, Hickersberger knows what is needed to succeed at the highest level, but his inexperienced squad face a steep learning curve. Qualifying automatically as hosts, Austria have only had friendlies to prepare, with soft opponents chosen in the hope of providing a boost to confidence.

That hasn’t worked out as planned, as up to May the co-hosts had won just one of their previous 14 games, suggesting that Austria will be the whipping boys of Group B. This is reflected in the Euro 2008 Group winner betting odds at PinnacleSports.com where Austria are priced 151.00* in the outright winner’s market. None of the Austrian squad are household names going into Euro 2008, but each has a golden opportunity to step forward and help their country to an unlikely success.

Croatians Likely Dark Horses to Upset Big Names

After leading Croatia to Euro 2008 as winners of qualification group E ahead of England, coach, Slaven Bilic, has been tipped by many to take charge of one of Europe’s big club sides. Several of his squad are also tipped to go on to greater things, with 22 year old Luka Modric already captured by Tottenham Hotpsur for a club record £21.5 million. Modric joins 21 year old defender, Vedran Corluka in the Premiership, who joined Manchester City for an estimated £8million.

This Croatia side must deal with the legacy of the success of the national side at the 1998 World Cup (which included Bilic), who are immortalised at home. Croatia were dealt a blow when Brazilian born striker, Eduardo da Silva, suffered a horrific broken leg playing for Arsenal, ruling him out of the tournament. The Croatians are second favourites to win Euro 2008 Group B priced 14.180*.

Poland Looking to Enjoy Euro 2008 Finals Debut

Though Poland have enjoyed success at the World Cup, famously finishing third in 1982, this will be their first appearance at the European Championships. Their passage was booked on the back of nine goals from striker, Euzebiusz Smolarek, whose father Wlodzimierz played in that bronze medal winning side. Coach, Leo Beenhakker, has a wealth of experience at club and national level, which helped steer the Poles to the finals.

Their was disappointment in March with a 3-0 home defeat by the USA, but the Dutch boss insisted it was ‘no reason to lose faith’. Poland aren’t considered likely winners, despite the benefit of a strong travelling army of supporters. PinnacleSports.com price them as 9.430* to cause a shock and win Group B. Games against Austria and Germany will be highly charge local Derbies that should raise the level of performance of what is an ordinary looking Polish squad.

 Euro 2008 Bets - Group C Preview

 Kicks Off June 9

Ever since the draw was made back in December, Euro 2008’s Group of Death has been the subject of lengthy debate as to who will emerge from among France, Italy, Holland and Romania. The Euro 2008 betting at PinnacleSports.com for Group C has Italy as 60% better Euro 2008 betting odds available at PinnacleSports.com, then wait for the first Group C games on June 9th.

Italy Head a Three Horse Race for Group Supremacy

World Champions Italy come into the 2008 European Championships looking to erase the memory of their dismal failure in Portugal. The Azzurri were eliminated at the Group stage after a timid showing and the team and manager were heavily criticised on their to Italy. All was forgiven after success in Germany, but expectations remain high for an improved performance on the European stage. This will be Roberto Donadoni’s first major tournament as coach; the former Azzurri winger has presided over a transition phase for the national teams since winning the 2006 World Cup.

Donadoni cannot call upon Francesco Totti, who has retired from international football, but he has otherwise retained the backbone of the side that were successful two years ago in Berlin, and who guided Italy the top of qualification Group B ahead of France. The Group of Death poses a real threat to the Italians should they revert to their natural negative tactical game which was their undoing in Portugal. Donadoni should have learned enough to encourage his team to express themselves in attack as much as defence in which case they are capable of another tournament victory priced 8.360* by PinnacleSports.com.

French Possess Enviable Euro 2008 Squad

One look at the names that didn’t even make Raymond Domenech’s 30 man France squad for Euro 2008, tells you a lot about the strength of Les Bleus. There was no place for David Trezeguet who scored the winning goal in the Euro 2000 final, nor for Gael Clichy of Arsenal. There are several stalwarts in Claude Makele, Patrick Viera and Lilian Thuram, while the future lies in the hands of Lyon’s Hatem Ben Arfa and Karim Benzema. Perhaps France’s most famous player, Thierry Henry, has suffered an indifferent season with Barcelona, but the former Arsenal great will see Euro 2008 as an opportunity to re-launch his career.

France exceeded expectation in beating Brazil at the 2006 World Cup, and only failed in the final on penalty kicks. Domenech has struggled with moving side forward, and finding the right formation from such an embarrassment of riches. After such a successful season with Bayern Munich, Franck Ribery will be a pivotal figure, with a lot riding on his creative input. PinnacleSports.com price France 9.690* to win Euro 2008.

Can Young Exciting Dutch Come Of Age?

Holland captured the U21 European Championships last summer on home turf, illustrating the abundance of talent coming through the Dutch ranks. Holland have rarely been short of soccer ability, but internal strife has often been their undoing. If coach, Marco Van Basten, can maintain unity then his side have an excellent chance of emulating the success of the U21 side.

The roll call of he Dutch squad includes almost all Europe’s top domestic clubs: goalkeeper, Edwin Van der Sar (Man Utd), Robin Van Persie (Arsenal), Dirk Kuyt & Ryan Babel (Liverpool), Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robbenn & Ruud Van Nistelrooy (Real Madrid). The Oranje may however, have a weak-point in defence, with their quality concentrated in midfield and attack. In qualification they only took one point from six against Group C rivals, Romania, which they will need to improve, but if they can fulfil their undoubted potential, the Dutch could be good value priced 14.00* for overall success at PinnacleSports.com.

Under-estimate Romanians at Your Peril

Having qualified for their first major international tournament since Euro 2000 with two games to spare, Romania must be cursing to have been handed a place in the Group of Death. Their record in European Championships is poor, with one win from nine matches, but coach, Victor Piturca, has a squad capable of improving that record, despite their tough pool. Adrian Mutu was one of the best strikers in Serie A this season, while captain, Cristian Chivu, is a regular with Italian Champions, Inter Milan.

Romania showed they shouldn’t be overlooked by finishing on top of qualification group G ahead of Holland, losing just one of their twelve games. The national side has struggled in recent years to emulate what is considered the Golden Era of national football in the early nineties, culminating with a quarter-final at the 1994 World Cup. Controversy and internal wrangling are never far away from the Romanian national side, but their recent 3-0 thrashing of Russia shows they are not just making up the numbers. If Piturca can keep his side under control, Romania could produce a shock similar to that of Greece four years ago. PinnacleSports.com price Romania outsiders to lift the Euro 2008 trophy at 50.00*.

 Euro 2008 Betting - Group D Preview

 Kicks Off June 10

Euro 2008 Betting Preview - Group D Betting Preview

With the all the major European domestic leagues and Cup competitions done and dusted, club football now steps out of the limelight, and the focus falls firmly on Euro 2008 betting. The final countdown to the tournament kick-off on June 7th is well underway, so now is the perfect time for punters to analyse the chances of the 16 participating teams then take advantage of up to 60% better Euro 2008 betting odds at PinnacleSports.com.

Can Talented But Moody Spaniards Be Trusted

One of the greatest conundrums in international football is why a soccer nation with the embarrassment of talent that Spain possesses has so consistently under-achieved when in matters. The Spaniards were many pundits confident selections for success at the 2006 World Cup, with a mixture of youth and experience, but once again fell short. Coach, Luis Aragones was fortunate to keep his job, helped by the fact that few Spanish managers actually want to be handed the poisoned chalice of managing the national side.

The Wise Man of Hortaleza has made some bold exclusions from his squad, with no place for Real Madrid’s Raul, or Barca’s teenage sensation, Bojan Krkic, while Sergio Garcia of relegated, Real Zaragoza, gets a surprise call-up. Spain regularly produces champions in individual sports such as golf and tennis, but seems to struggle in team events. Avoiding the big names of Europe in Group D hands Spain another chance, but any punters who’ve had their fingers burnt backing the Spaniards before may watch and wait. PinnacleSports.com price 1.943* to top their section.

Will Russian Renaissance Spread to Euro 2008?

Russia is currently in the midst of a sporting renaissance, which its fans will hope continues at Euro 2008. Zenit St Petersburg lifted the UEFA Cup on May 14th, shortly after the National team beat Canada on home soil to win the Ice Hockey World Championship while it is the dominant force in world tennis. The new breed of Russian athlete is shaking off the post-communist inferiority complex, and that confidence was certainly evident during Euro 2008 qualification as the national soccer team beat England in Moscow on the way to booking their place in Austria and Switzerland.

Russia’s new mentality will be tested in their opener against Spain, who beat their neighbours, Ukraine, 4-0 in their opening 2006 World Cup game. Coach, Guus Hiddink, has trusted in youth, with the oldest squad member just 30. Critics may suggest the Russians lack experience, and a star striker up front, but they have a solid defensive unit, and are easily capable of emerging successfully from Group D for which they are priced at odds of 28.740* outsiders in their outright Euro 2008 betting market. For further information, on all the Euro 2008 betting odds available at PinnacleSports.com.

Larsson Rolls Back the Years for Sweden

Henrik Larsson clearly loves playing for his national team. Having announced his retirement on two previous occasion, he has delighted Sweden coach, Lars Lagerback, to resume his international career at Euro 2008. Larsson will be bring valuable experience, but Lagerback’s successful attempt to lure Larsson out of retirement illustrates a lack of available young Swedish successors, with fellow striker Marcus Allback now 34. The tournament in Switzerland and Austria will be Sweden’s fifth successive major tournament, but the best finish in that spell was a quarter-final in Euro 2004.

Though they will present a tough physical challenge to any side, Sweden tend to fall short of the quality required to go all the way. The return to fitness and form of Inter Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be critical; the tall striker came off the bench in Inter’s final game of the season to score two quick-fire goals that handed them the Serie A title. He may need to perform similar heroics for a Sweden side that otherwise lacks invention and sparkle. That suggestion is supported by Sweden’s price on PinnacleSports.com’s Euro 2008 betting market, who rate them 37.230* outsiders for overall glory.

Holders Won’t Relinquish Trophy Without Fight

Otto Rehhagel, has remained in charge of Greece in order to orchestrate the defence of the European Championship title which the Greeks won so surprisingly in Portugal four years ago. Half of that successful squad remain, and though Greece failed to qualify for the 2006 World Cup, they were impressive in booking their place at Euro 2008. The Greeks topped a tricky section by seven points losing just one of their twelve qualifiers.

Despite their impressive results in qualification, statistics speak against a repeat success for Greece. In all twelve previous European Championships, no team has successfully defended the Henri Delaunay trophy, while the same is true of the last eleven World Cups. Rehhagel will however be pleased with his Group D opponents, who don’t present an insurmountable challenge to reach the knock-out phase. PinnacleSports.com price Greece 28.740* to win back-to-back titles, in their Euro 2008 betting market.
