The penny is starting to drop with punters that France have a serious chance of claiming victory during this summer’s European Championship.
Having qualified as hosts, there is an element of the unknown about Les Bleus although the quality within the squad has seen the bookmakers run for cover and BetVictor now go 3/1 that Didier Deschamps’ side are victorious.
France certainly benefit from having an easy-looking group involving Switzerland, Romania and Albania, while they also appear to have a safe passage through to the last eight stage providing they win Group A.
Anthony Martial, Dimitri Payet and N’Golo Kante have performed outstandingly in the Premier League this term, joining high quality players such as Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and Antoine Griezmann in the squad.
France are likely to go even shorter on the outright market should they win their opening clash against Romania, with Germany next in the betting with BetVictor at 10/3 while Spain are an 11/2 shot.
However, both of these teams have concerns from an attacking point-of-view, especially Spain who are missing a quality striker and probably have been since David Villa retired.
England hover at odds of 8/1 and there are question marks about them defensively, while Belgium are a 10/1 chance and should go well in the same group as Italy, Sweden and Republic of Ireland.
