Many stars will be vying for Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament, the most prestigious individual honor of the competition. Several players will also be in the running for top goalscorer or most assists, but this category will also include defensive stalwarts.


Kylian Mbappe headlines this group at +600. He was named the top young player at the 2018 World Cup and has accomplished so much despite being just 22 years old. PSG have boldly said they’re “never selling” Mbappe, but all the world’s top clubs are interested in his services. If he adds a Euro title and Player of the Tournament to his name, that price point will only increase.

Other big names in top 5

Fan favorite N’Golo Kante and striker Antoine Griezmann will challenge their teammate for the honor, making it tougher to pinpoint who will be France’s best player. England’s Harry Kane will be in the mix due to his place atop the Golden Boot odds. Kevin De Bruyne’s ability as a distributor should play well in this category.

Potential value bet

Memphis Depay is slightly down the list at +3500, but should score plenty of goals. Netherlands is expected to make a run at the Euro title, meaning more games for Depay to showcase his skills. Belgium’s ‘golden generation’ will be trying to win a trophy, meaning Eden Hazard at +5000 is another value option for bettors. He’s should be one of the team’s top scorers and can also chip in some assists.
