On Friday, June 11 2021, the UEFA European Championship (Euro 2020) is going to open exactly one year later than planned with one of the most intriguing matches of Group Stage-Matchday 1.

In fact, the two best games might bookend the first week, with a Group F contest between France and Germany closing out the round.

But this is about Group A, and Italy will host Turkey to open up the tournament. Italy is the favorite to win the group with odds of -175, but this Turkey squad is legit, and an upset could turn the group upside down on the first day.

Here is a look at the opening game odds in Group A, with the odds to win the group and to be one of the 16 teams to advance into the knockout stages.

UEFA Euro 2020 Group A Prediction

Italy at -175 is a good play to win the group, although I might take a little flier on Turkey at +450 to win as well. The betting odds to qualify show how tough this group is going to be: all four teams are minus-money. Wales at -125 might be worth a shot.
