Euro 2004 Biggest Betting Event in History
By philip
William Hill are predicting that this the Euro 2004 soccer tournament, set to kick off 12 June, will be the biggest ever in terms of betting, and are expecting an amazing £250 million will be gambled on the outcome. The bookmakers told Readabet this week that they had just taken a bet of fifty thousand pounds on Spain and that, interestingly, Sweden has proved very popular with the punters; but less so England:

'As things stand at the moment it looks as though we could be cheering England on as Spain, Germany, France and, surprisingly, Sweden,have attracted by far the biggest betting activity' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'The biggest bet we have taken for England is £2000 but other punters seem to have been holding back - perhaps they have been unimpressed with England's recent form in friendlies, I'm sure a positive performance against Iceland this weekend will spark a surge of patriotic support

Hills are offering odds of 9/1 that England win all of their Euro 2004 Group matches, 5/2 that they fail to win a single one, and 33/1 that they lose all three.
