After some scepticism from football fans on the continent upon UEFA’s unveiling of their Nations League competition, the tournament has proven to be a huge hit in it’s first edition, replacing stale and soulless friendlies with intense, competitive fixtures between well-matched sides.
In the end, it was Portugal, also the holders of UEFA’s other international competition in the European Championships, who became the first to lift the trophy, beating the Netherlands on home soil with the final stages held in Guimarães and Porto.
But the beauty of this tournament is not only the silverware on offer for the top teams, but also the fact that it gives a route to perceivably weaker sides to reach the European Championships themselves. Last time around, the likes of Georgia, North Macedonia and Kosovo all secured play-off spots for themselves thanks to their excellent performances in the lower divisions of the competition.
This time around, the likes of France, Italy, Spain and England will be hoping to improve on their showings last time out and get their hands on one of international football’s newest and most exciting prizes whilst teams in the lower divisions look to rise through the ranks to win themselves the chance to challenge Europe’s footballing elite in the coming years.
So, keep your eyes peeled for the 3rd September and onwards, when the first round of matches kick off, with Squawka Bet on hand to provide you with all the latest Nations League betting tips and predictions as the action unfolds…

Of course, our betting previews and predictive previews will help in providing you with all the stats on all the teams – you definitely wouldn’t want to bet on the Germans to make it through without it copping out, right? (wink)
both teams to score
You can’t go wrong with a BTTS wager – all it requires is that both teams score, whether that’s within the 90 minutes or after, regardless of if your team actually, y’know, emerges with all three points.
A great tip to cop out is to scour the teams known for their attacking arsenal, the French, Belgian, England (kind of), Poland – they have Robert Lewandowski…
Pit them together, and the goals will be forthcoming, which will make a great asset to any Nations League accas.
To score a header
It’s as simple as it gets with this particular market – the player in question must score with their noggin for you to earn a payout.
Though it may not seem it, this is actually a great way to earn some cash on those Nations League tips, especially considering the giants that some of these teams feature.
For instance, Harry Maguire – ‘slabhead’ – rises to 6ft 3. However, Germany’s Simon Bloch Jørgensen is 6ft 10. Gulp.
Player total shots
Getting the number of shots a player may barrage at the opposition goal may be a tough test of knowledge – but not without Squawka Bet on hand.
Indeed, from Lewandowski to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – and obvs Lionel Messi – the best strikers of the ball will be detailed in all our betting previews and predictive previews.
Player total tackles
Another more lucrative way of putting those Nations League tips to use is through the player total tackles market – a perfect way of course, who needs goal scorers?
Anyhoo, there are a whole host of players who could help you emerge with cash in hand. From the Brazilian Fabinho, known for his steel and ruthlessness in the centre of the park, all the way through to the Spaniard Thiago Alcantara and his stubbornness, you won’t go wrong.
Red cards, yellow cards, players crowding the refs – we’ve got it all covered with this market.
Whether you’re looking to wager on which player will be the one to bite and give into all the opposition insults, or which individual will be the one to get away with sneaky challenges, with our Nations League betting offers and free tips on hand, you won’t miss a single second of the drama.
From players’ middle toes being offside to their forehead hairs dangling over that magical thin blue VAR line, your Nations League betting tips will be a great fit for copping in on all the errors of the strikes across the divisions.
Because, let’s face it, strikers will be the ones to get themselves offside the most, so keep your eyes peeled as the action unfolds.
Perhaps not one of the most thrilling wagers to delve into with those Nations League tips, but punting on the number of corners racked up in a game – and it is an overs/unders market – could be a perfect addition to your Nations League betting accumulator.
Alongside full-time scores and first scorers, you could cash in with a great payout, should you play your cards well.
Nations League VAR specials
VAR is slowly but surely making a grand appearance at the Nations League games, which provides you – the punter – the perfect opportunity to start wagering on the odds, and not wagering war with your TV.
From dodgy offside calls featuring players’ forehead hair crossing that magical blue line, to 10-minute penalty check-ups, you’ll be in for all the thrills and spills alongside the latest VAR Nations League odds and tips on hand.
A compromise worth staking on.
