If you correctly predict the result of all 8 football matches, you will win a share of the £8,000 cash prize.
One great thing about the Upfor8 game is that even if you don’t correctly predict the outcome of all 8 matches, you can still win prizes.

UpFor8 for Euro 2020 is different to the standard weekly game as instead of winning a share of £8,000 if you correctly predict all eight items, the prize pool for this game is a whopping £100,000!
So now you know how Up For 8 works, what is the best strategy?
As the aim is to predict the correct score in each, or as many of, the 8 selected matches, the best strategy is to predict the correct scores with the greatest chances of coming in.
The vast majority of people who play UpFor8 will spend minimal time on predicting the scores. They will simply enter a score with no more than a few seconds thought on the match and then submit their entries. However, by spending a little bit more time on your selections, you will be able to increase your chances of winning significantly.
So, how do you know which scores are most likely to happen in each match?
It’s easy. Simply look at the odds of each correct score bet on the bookmakers website. The lower the odds, the greater the chance that score has of coming in.
By backing the most likely correct score compared to the score you think the match will end in, you can often increase your chances of winning by HUGE amounts.
For example, lets say that these were your correct score predictions:
A correct score accumulator on this bet would have odds of 333,590,400/1
However, the correct scores with the lowest odds may be:
A correct score accumulator on this bet would have odds of 38,52576/1
As you can see, there is a huge difference in odds (and probability) between the two accumulators.
Generally, correct scores with fewer goals have the lowest odds and greatest chances of happening. Although, it is recommended to simply check the odds for each of the eight featured matches in UpFor8 to see which is lowest.
