The defending World Cup Champion Spain is lined as a co-favorite in Euro 2012 at +275 odds at Oddsmaker as they share the top spot with Germany who also returns +275 odds. Germany was the winner of the third place game in the 2010 World Cup. The World Cup Final second place finisher the Netherlands is lined in the wagering as the third favorite at +700 odds. Italy checks in as the fourth choice in the wagering at +1100 odds.

Of the top four betting choices the team from Italy was one of the major disappointments of the 2010 World Cup as the nation failed to enter the knockout stages. The Italians finished fourth and last in Group F behind Paraguay, Slovakia and New Zealand. Italy drew with both Paraguay and New Zealand and fell 3-2 to Slovakia eliminating the nation from the World Cup.

Another major European disappointment of the 2010 World Cup was the nation of France. The French are the sixth betting choice to win Euro 2012 at +1200 odds. France like Italy failed to even qualify for the knockout stages of World Cup 2010 as the club was fourth and last in Group A. In group stages after a 0-0 draw to Uruguay France fell to Mexico 2-0 and in one of the biggest upsets of the 2010 World Cup the French were defeated by host nation South Africa 2-1 to rock the soccer nation.

Greece is an extreme underdog in Euro 2012 with odds of +7000 to win. The 2004 European champions lost all three games in Euro 2008. Greece qualified for World Cup 2010 and failed to enter the knockout stage with a third place finish in Group B behind Argentina and South Korea. Greece defeated Nigeria in group stages 2-1 but the team was defeated by Argentina and South Korea by identical 2-0 scores to send the Greekā€™s packing back home to Greece.

The host nations of Russia will return +2200 odds to win Euro 2012 while Poland is an extreme longshot at +4000 odds. Both Russian and Poland failed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup.
