What Odds Spain Win World Cup 2014, Euro 2016?Published July 2, 2012 by OCR Editor
Spain became Euro 2012 champions last night, and online bookies say run will continue
Spain achieved an amazing feat of three major tournament wins with their Euro 2012 final victory over Spain Sunday night, and now online bookmakers are speculating on whether their record-breaking run will continue.
Favorites Win Euro 2012
Spain once again embraced the sports betting favourites tag bestowed upon them at the beginning of the European Championships, beating all comers easily before eventually downing Italy comprehensively 4- in the final.
The performance was reminiscent of their showing at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and Euro 2008, where on both occasions they went in as one of the favorites and both times they got better as the tournament went along before destroying their rivals in the final.
What odds they keep winning?
William Hill Online is publishing odds of 20/1 for Spain to win at least the next two tournaments, starting with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and continuing through to the expanded 24-nation Euro 2016 in France. Spain is already 11/2 joint second favorite (behind Brazil and equal with Argentina) to win the next World Cup.
Looking to the next English Premier League season, Hill is offering 1/2 on Chelsea's Spanish striker Fernando Torres scoring more goals than Manchester City's Italian star Mario Balotelli (6/4). Balotelli was the star of Euro 2012, but Torres overshadowed him in the final, coming off the bench to score a goal and provide an assist.
