England are the favorites going into the semi-finals


England have the lowest Euro 2022 odds of any team remaining in the tournament.

The English women head into their matchup against Sweden at +150 on Tuesday to win the tournament at BetMGM. The Swedes are the long shot at the title at +500, while the odds makers see the other semi-final as very even. Germany is +245 to clinch the title while France is +275.

England entered the tournament as favorites with Spain and knocked them out in the quarter-finals on Wednesday. Spain held a 1-0 lead for most of the game but England scored in the last 10 minutes of regular time to send them into extra time and Georgia Stanway found a laser six minutes into extra time to tie it up to achieve a decisive advantage.

Spain went into the tournament without midfielder Alexia Putellas. She tore her cruciate ligament during training shortly before the tournament. Her injury was significant for a Spanish team that could easily have made it to the final.

All four teams remaining in the tournament are in the top eight of the FIFA World Ranking. Sweden is actually the best team from Europe at 2nd place behind the United States, while France is 3rd, Germany 5th and England 8th.

Given the odds for Sweden and England to win the tournament, odds makers obviously don’t put too much stock in the rankings. And you can understand why. England are hosting Euro 2022 and have garnered massive fan support at all of their games. There will be a loud crowd for the semi-finals on Tuesday (3pm ET, ESPN2) and it will get even bigger and louder on Sunday as England advance to the final.
