In one week, things have changed a bit in the Euro 2020 Golden Boot odds race. Some familiar names have moved to prominence. With the tournament about halfway done with the group stage, some players are moving up in the Euro 2020 betting odds to take home honors as the top scorer in one of the world’s top international tournaments.

In Group F, 36-year old Cristiano Ronaldo opened with two goals against the weakest opponent in Euro 2020’s group of death — Hungary. The big question is if he can replicate the effort against the two world powerhouses he runs up against next — Germany on Saturday, and France next week in the third leg of group play.

One would think surviving this brutal group might give Portugal a chance to advance in the do-or-die stages of Euro 2020 — and it would give Ronaldo a chance to win this honor.

Ronaldo now has a record 11 all-time Euro goals. He passed France’s great star Michel Platini (nine goals) against Hungary. How much will he add to that number? Could he bring this year’s honor home? Is this the year that older legends collect it?

Still getting impressive soccer betting odds are Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku (two goals so far, four overall all-time) and 2016 Golden Boot winner Antoine Griezmann of France — who hasn’t scored yet this year but has six tallies all-time. Both contenders are 30 or younger and could get another shot at this — and obviously, this year is just getting started and both teams are strong.

So who will clinch this? An old-time talent or a new name? You tell us. You can place a wager on whom will win the Euro 2020 Golden Boot with BetMGM.
