Despite winning this tournament in 1960, as the USSR, the Russia Euro 2020 odds are based on a current squad which has been unpredictable in recent years - as their performance at the last World Cup showed.
The tournament hosts scored eight goals in their first two games to book their place in the second round with a game to spare.
Hopes of a home success were ramped up when they knocked out Spain on penalties, only for them to bow out on spot-kicks to Croatia in the quarter-finals.
Although they had few problems in qualifying for the European Championship finals behind Belgium, Russia's recent form is unimpressive, with away defeats to Slovakia, Serbia and Turkey preceded by goalless draws against Moldova and Hungary.
At least Zenit St Petersburg striker Artem Dzyuba is back in favour after the chief goal threat was dropped last year following a video scandal, while boss Stanislav Cherchesov can also look to Aleksandr Golovin and Aleksei Miranchuk for inspiration.
