    Big tournament, perfect time for a flutter.

    Talk about your bets here.

    I might try to pick a couple of outright winners, then I'll just place bets on individual matches for a bit of added interest. Haven't placed anything yet though.

    Im going to be trawling teh net to get the best BOGOF or free bet and may well do a bit of live spread betting if I get time and space - last WC, I had some fantastic spreads laid out live and hedged my downside entirely as the games progressed.

    That all sounds quite complex. I am shit at betting I just pick a team and hope for the best, never done the in-game stuff.

    Holland maybe worth a punt at 7/1

    What are the odds on Hodgson being sacked within a month of it finishing?

    The only bet like this I can find is 'to leave after euro 2012 and before world cup 2014 qualifiers'.

    Those qualifiers start on 7th September which is a couple of months after euro 2012 ends, but close enough.

    12/1

    Italy at 12/1 seems like a good bet

    Balotelli at 25s for top scorer might be worth a punt.

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    Eh? Isnt the Italian game it meltdown again?

    Mind you last time that happened they won the world cup, I remember it well because they were the worst team to ever win a world cup.

    exactly - italy are like germany, they can always win - they defend hard, always scrape through group stages, step up a gear in the next rounds and with balotelli in the mix they'll be tasty going forward - 14/1 italy and balotelli top scorer 25s according to twisted, the only way to go for me

    Italy really should have won the 2000 Euros,after going 1-0 up in the final Del Pireo missed some great chances to put it beyond the French,course France equalised with literally the last kick of the 90 min and won with a GG in extra time.

    £20 at 33/1 on the England game depressingly going in the way that I expect it to.

    Thanks... That doesn't sound so depressing

    I see it as a messy, aggressive card fest. Both teams knowing that they have to win this game so as not to have to play Spain before the final. France winning at half-time I expect and a second half full of snidy little incidents and cards justifying the added time at the end.

    Oh I see. Good luck, that is quite intelligent betting and it'll be a lot less depressing if that comes in for you :)

    I thought you meant depressing as in England getting thrashed by several goals.

    That as well. :(
