As the 2016 European Championship shifts to the knockout stage, Las Vegas has a new betting favorite to win the title.

Host country France, which opened the tournament as a 3-1 co-favorite with Germany at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, now is the favorite at 4-1 to take home its third Euro title and first since 2000.

Germany has the second-best odds at 9-2, followed by Spain (11-2) and Belgium (6-1).

Tournament darling Iceland is 100-1 to win the title but first must get past England (9-1) on Monday.

The team with the biggest jump in odds from the tourney's start is the Republic of Ireland, which Jeff Sherman (oddsmaker at the Westgate) said on ESPN's Behind The Bets podcast has been getting some sharp action to win it all. Ireland opened at 200-1 and has been bet down to 60-1.

France will take on Ireland on Sunday at 9 a.m. ET on ESPN.
