Spain are the defending champions after winning their fourth title two years ago in Serbia. In the last decade they’ve become the biggest power in European women’s basketball, but the Soviet Union is still the record holder with 21 titles. The tournament starts today with the first group games and will continue with the knockout stage next week. The final is held next Sunday in Valencia, where we can easily see the same nations as in the last two occasions. The Spanish and the French team.

Other favorites include Belgium and Serbia
Belgium can be a lucky third and get the trophy instead of the two top teams. They got the bronze medal in the 2017 tournament. Which was the best result in the country’s history. Now the team can get even further thanks to their stars like Emma Meesseman. The Washington Mystics forward was voted as the 2019 WNBA Finals MVP. While her former teammates, Kim Mestdagh and Julie Allemand can also contribute to another great performance. Online gambling sites in France offer the odds of 4.50 for Belgium’s victory.
The bronze medalist from the previous championship, Serbia can also aim for a better result this time. They won’t have an easy job as their group looks like the most difficult one with Greece, Italy and Montenegro in it. The 2015 champions are still expected to finish on top of Group B. Experienced players like Sonja Vasic, Jelena Brooks and Tina Krajisnik can help to achieve it. While their new addition, US-born Yvonne Anderson can be a real game-changer. Serbia’s odds to win their second title is 7.00 now on 22Bet.
