British bookmaker William Hill have shortened England's price after they were handed a date with France, Sweden and co-hosts Ukraine in Group D.
Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe said, "England have been handed a decent draw and we have cut their odds from 11/1 pre-draw to 7/1."
Fabio Capello's side have already beaten Sweden in a friendly but did lose to France in their most recent meeting. Although confidence may be high amongst the England camp, the possibility of facing Spain in the knock-out stages remains a possibility.
The defending champions remain firm favourites to become the first country to retain the trophy and their price has tumbled to 9/4.
Germany have seen their price drift from 10/3 to 7/2 but are still second favourites while the Netherlands are now 7/1 to win a second European crown.
Denmark and Portugal resume hostilities after the Danes' victory in the final round of qualifying matches forced Paulo Bento's men into a play-off with Bosnia-Herzegovina. Cristiano Ronaldo's Seleccao have gone from 16/1 to 18/1 while the Real Madrid superstar has drifted in top goalscorer market to 12/1.
Punters who fancy a longshot can back Denmark to repeat their Euro 1992 heroics at 100/1.
The action gets underway on June 8 with Poland taking on Greece in Warsaw.
