Commenting on Euro 2016 bookmaker activity, Guy Harding Oddschecker’s Head of Commercial:
“The tournament looks to have been a kind one to bookmakers; just 41% of games were won by favourites compared to 50% at the last World Cup and 58% during Euro 2012. Added to this, over a third (35%) of games ended in a draw eclipsing both the 2014 (28%) and 2012 (23%) tournaments.”
“Portugal’s tournament victory, coupled with the goalless bore draw in the final, looks to have been the cherry on the cake in what has otherwise been a v. painful year.”
“Once again those partners who actively engaged with Oddschecker in advance and during the tournament bore the fruits of their increased exposure which translated into customer awareness and engagement.”
