euros group a betting tips

Euro 2020 is finally here and there are some truly exciting match-ups coming your way, and that’s just in the groups. In fact, this entire tournament is an incredibly competitive one, but it’s even more so when we take a deep dive into each group. Group A is one of the hardest groups to call as there’s not one single standout team. In this group there are actually several teams that are currently playing in top form, making it one of the most open groups in this tournament. That being said, Italy is still the favourite here and likely to take the top spot in the group. But, with Turkey and Switzerland rather evenly matched and Wales game to cause an upset that second spot is very much up for grabs.

Italy Betting Tips and Odds

Italy is the fans and bookies favourite in this group to come out on top. But they’re not just scoring highly in the groups but as the overall winner. Currently, Italy is in the seventh position, sitting at a comfortable 11/1 with Casumo, to take home the trophy. This is for good reason. Italy entered the tournament with an impressive 8 wins and 2 draws in their last ten games — not a single loss there. In fact, their form is as perfect as it can get in football, which makes them truly the one to watch. The team is home to some of their best performers too with Ciro Immobile being one of the notable faces. He’s ranked in the top ten at 22/1 to become top goalscorer and claim the Golden Boot.

Odds for Italy

Turkey Betting Tips and Odds

Turkey is good at football, on and off. Until recently, this team has been almost written off, leaving them as one of the longer outsiders for this tournament. But, things change. In their last five games, Turkey has seen a run of impressive form winning three away games against Norway, Russia and the Netherlands, the latter one of the top 10 in the Euro 2020 to take the crown. With such good form, things have turned around for this Turkish side who are now at a much better 50/1 to win the title. With 11/2 odds to win the group, things are looking up for this team. And there is some star quality here, particularly with Enes Unal, Bunyamin Balci and Hakan Calhanoglu all ready and raring to go.

Odds for Turkey

Switzerland Betting Tips and Odds

Switzerland is on a relatively equal footing with Turkey right now. In fact, these two teams are where the results of this group might lie. The winner in this clash may well be the one to seize second place in the pool or even that coveted top spot. Switzerland has a number of outstanding players in the team including Granit Xhaka, Ricardo Rodriguez and Haris Seferovic. This team means business and is looking to get out of the group and take that title. On very close odds to Turkey, this Swiss side is at 9/2 to take the group but is set at slightly longer odds of 70/1 for actually winning the tournament. Keep an eye on the Turkey-Switzerland clash as this is where the action will be.

Odds for Switzerland

Wales Betting Tips and Odds

Without a doubt, Wales are the biggest underdogs in this group. They do have a stellar team in play though, coached by the impressive Ryan Giggs. Within the team is a plethora of other top players including Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Daniel James and Joe Rodon. However, while each of these players shows individual excellence, they need to work well as a team moving forward. Wales is also one of the longest shots in the tournament sitting at 100/1 to take the title, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility. That being said, they are coming in with a decent run of wins, winning 4 of their last 5 outings. The loss was a respectable one against Belgium, so they could pull off a surprise in Group A.

Odds for Wales

Tipster’s Angle: Can the Italians hold out for a win?

While there is a clear divide between the top and bottom teams in this group, what makes Group A fascinating is the consistency. Each one of these teams is coming into the group on a streak of excellent wins. That makes this group one of the more unpredictable ones out there, which will make this all the more exciting. Of course, Italy is still the favourites, but the strong performances and stellar players in the other teams make it hard to rule them out. In fact, each of them has a solid chance at qualifying out of the group for the next round. Keep an eye on the Turkey vs Switzerland game as this last game could be the one that seals the fate of the teams topping the group.

Euro 2020 Match Betting: Czech Republic v England preview

England and Scotland will both be looking to join fellow Home Nations side, Wales, in the last 16. But who will punch their ticket to the knockout stage? Here are our views ahead of the Czech Republic v England, and Croatia v Scotland.

Czech Republic v England Betting Tips — Gareth Southgate’s men ready to make amends after Scotland draw

England, from the outset, should have had a vice-like grip on Group D. While their 1-0 victory over Croatia in their opening group game was workmanlike and efficient, the Three Lions did what they had to. Against Scotland, England was insipid and sluggish. Although John Stones clattered a header from a Mason Mount corner against the post, they failed to break down an obdurate Scotland, who gave a good account of themselves. Tougher tests lie ahead for Gareth Southgate, who has had to field criticism about his side’s ponderous play.

Harry Kane has been below his best this tournament, but many would have expected Jack Grealish to be unleashed by now. It remains to be seen whether Southgate will take a gamble and start Grealish. England needs a creative spark, and a win against the Czech Republic will secure the top spot. Currently, England is 3/5 to beat the Czech Republic, but having not scored more than one goal in each of their past four outings, the onus will be on Southgate’s men to step things up in their final group game. While England could avoid the likes of France and Germany in the last 16 if they finish runners-up in Group D, they may only be delaying the inevitable.

Surprisingly, the Czech Republic is in charge of Group D going into Matchday 3, and they have looked impressive to date. Patrik Schick is currently Euro 2020s join top scorer, having netted three times to date, and his wonder strike against Scotland is a sure-fire contender for goal of the tournament. The Czech Republic have acquitted themselves well so far, and the 1996 finalists will fancy their chances of causing an upset against England.

At present, the goal difference separates the Czech Republic and England. You can get odds of 13/2 for the Czech Republic to come away with a victory.

Name Winner Top 2
England 21/50 1/14
Croatia 19/5 4/6
Czech Republic 21/2 2/1
Scotland 16/1 3/1

Croatia v Scotland Betting Tips — Scots suffer Billy Gilmour blow ahead of crunch game

Scotland’s performance against England merited the point they richly deserved, and they are still in the frame to reach the last 16. In particular, Billy Gilmour shone, which saw the Chelsea midfielder earn rave reviews, and it even saw comparisons drawn between him and Barcelona legend Xavi! However, Gilmour tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend, and if Steve Clarke’s men do advance to the round of 16, Gilmour will be forced to sit out as he has to self isolate for 10 days.

Despite this setback, the point against England injected new belief into the Scotland squad, and they have turned things around after their 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic in their opening group game. After waiting so long to reach a major tournament, Scotland won’t be thinking of departing Euro 2020 just yet, and they are 43/20 to beat Croatia.

As far as Croatia are concerned, Euro 2020 won’t so far live long in the memory. A 1-0 reverse against England followed by a 1-1 draw was hardly what we expected from the 2018 World Cup semi-finalists. Luka Modric is seen as a fulcrum of the Croatia side, but he has been largely anonymous. Croatia will need a win to get the four-point mark which is seen as the minimum to cement a last 16 berth, and they are currently valued at 59/50 to beat Scotland.

Where’s the Golden Boot heading?

The Golden Boot could go right down to the wire, but if you want to find out the latest Euro 2020 golden boot odds and betting tips, we have you covered.

Euro 2020 Match Betting: Netherlands v North Macedonia preview

There are four cracking matches to look forward to on Matchday 3, and for some teams, there is still plenty to play for. In this preview, we will give the lowdown on North Macedonia v Netherlands, Finland v Belgium, and Russia v Denmark.

North Macedonia v Netherlands Betting tips — Frank de Boer looking to finish group campaign in style

The Netherlands will indulge in the celebratory atmosphere in the Johann Cruijff Arena when they take on North Macedonia later today. After qualifying for the last 16 with a game to spare, the Netherlands will be buoyant mood going into this dead rubber. Of course, Frank de Boer won’t allow his troops to take their foot off the pedal, and he will be demanding a professional performance to wrap up maximum points from Group C. Denzel Dumfries has impressed, and with two goals to boot so far this tournament, he will be eager to add to his tally against North Macedonia, and it could see his euros golden boot odds cut short.

Nevertheless, while North Macedonia will be packing their bags early, they will have learned a lot from their first major tournament. Igor Angelovski’s men have been rather refreshing in their approach, but they have afforded their opponents too many chances. A cursory glance at the odds shows North Macedonia are at a long 23/2 to beat the Netherlands, but it would certainly give their fans something to shout about.

Name Winner Top 2
Netherlands 13/25 1/16
Ukraine 17/4 4/5
Austria 9/2 19/20
North Macedonia 40/1 17/2

Finland v Belgium Betting tips — Finns in the race for last 16 spot

Belgium has already secured their place in the last 16, and it seems likely they will top Group B. It will be fascinating to see if Roberto Martinez rings in the changes to give some squad members more game time. Nevertheless, after a shaky performance against Denmark, the Red Devils are back in the groove. Belgium’s defensive problems were clear for all to see against Denmark, but with Kevin De Bruyne expected to start against Finland, he will likely pull the strings. Belgium is 33/100 to notch up three points against Finland.

Of course, Finland will take heart from Denmark’s display against Belgium. The permutations for Finland to qualify as runners-up will be if they draw or beat Belgium, and Russia loses to Denmark. Finland could recall Tim Sparv — who underwent knee surgery in March — against Belgium, and this would be a big boost.

Russia v Denmark Betting tips — Russia’s fate lies in their own hands

Group B appears to be delicately poised. Russia is in a scrap with Finland to finish second, however, if Finland were to stun Belgium, and Russia beat Denmark, then Belgium, Russia, and Finland would all finish on three points. However, goal difference would come into play. Russia struggled against Belgium, but a 1-0 win over Finland, kept their hopes alive, and their fate is in their own hands going into the Denmark clash.

On the other hand, Denmark’s minds have arguably been elsewhere after Christian Eriksen collapsed against Finland. While Denmark produced a spirited display against Belgium, they came up short. Nevertheless, the Danes are priced a short 7/10 to collect three points against Russia.

Name Winner Top 2
Belgium 3/4 1/9
Denmark 47/20 1/3
Russia 21/4 17/10
Finland 33/1 19/2

Ukraine v Austria Betting tips — Andriy Shevchenko has the last 16 spots in the grasp

For Ukraine, they are in touching distance of a last 16 spot. A 2-1 victory in their last Group C game against North Macedonia ended a run of six successive European Championship defeats, and in Andriy Yarmolenko, they have a player who can make things happen, and grab a game by the scruff of the neck. A victory over Austria will rubber stamp the second spot in Group C, and they are priced 13/5 to do so.

For Austria, they looked ordinary against the Netherlands, as they were outclassed from the first whistle. Austria will have to buck up their ideas if they are going to overcome a resurgent Ukraine.

Euro 2020 Match Betting: England v Scotland preview and more

The first round of group games has thrown up some surprise results, and given us an indicator for what we can expect in the days to come. We will now turn our attention to Match day 2, and assess three group clashes — England v Scotland, Croatia v Czech Republic, and Sweden v Slovakia. Within that, we will take a cursory glance at the match odds for these matches.

England v Scotland Betting tips — Buoyant England ready to replicate Euro 96 memories

Having never previously won an opening group game at the Euros, England put that unenviable record to bed with a mature display, as they beat an insipid Croatia 1-0 last Sunday. Raheem Sterling swept home the only goal of the game after latching onto a perfectly weighted pass by Kalvin Phillips.

Sterling has now netted 13 times in his past 17 appearances for England, but the result was an early confidence booster for Gareth Southgate and his charges. Next up is Scotland on Friday at Wembley, and this showdown will invoke memories of Euro 96. At that tournament, England dismantled the Auld Enemy. Paul Gascoigne left Colin Hendry on his back before firing home a sumptuous volley to seal a 2-0 victory.

England has the weight of expectation on its shoulders, but if football is really going to be coming home as many fans would seem to think, they need to be a bit more inventive upfront. Currently, England are 33/100 to beat Scotland.

For Scotland, their return to the Euros was punctured by a 2-0 defeat in their opening Group D game against the Czech Republic. Patrik Schick scored a double, including a spectacular goal from the halfway line. Steve Clarke’s men tried to rally late on, but Kieran Tierney’s injury during the warm-up before the game was a huge blow. They now go to Wembley with a heightened need to pick up a result, but they will have to have a game plan to stop Phil Foden.

Name Winner Top 2
England 21/50 1/14
Croatia 19/5 4/6
Czech Republic 21/2 2/1
Scotland 16/1 3/1

Sweden v Slovakia Betting Tips — Swedes can’t be underestimated after Spain draw

Sweden are a plucky brunch, and they dug deep to pick up an unlikely point in a goalless draw against Spain earlier this week. Spain created plenty of opportunities. But Alvaro Morata was guilty of passing them up, and many of his efforts lacked conviction. At the other end, Sweden lacked cutting edge, although Alexander Isak was very direct. The Spain draw will have given Sweden a lift, and they are 4/5 to beat Slovakia on Matchday 2.

Slovakia, on the other hand, are coming off the back of a 2-1 victory over Poland in their opening Group E game. Milan Skriniar plundered home a volley to get his side off to a winning start, and perhaps like Sweden, may have been slightly underestimated. Sweden v Slovakia could be a very open affair, and this is judged by the fact you can get odds of 7/5 for there to be Over 2.5 goals during the 90 minutes.

Croatia v Czech Republic Betting Tips — Luka Modric will look to get back to his scheming ways

Against England, Croatia were rather subdued, and they failed to settle in the game. Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric was one such player that was underwhelming. However, against the Czech Republic, he will look to get on the ball more often and dictate things in the middle of the park. England was a bad day at the office for Zlatko Dalic’s charges, but they are 23/20 to bounce back against the Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, the Czech Republic will have the wind in their sails after their victory over Scotland. If they can replicate that performance, they could make progress from Group D at the expense of Croatia. Schick has now been involved in 10 goals in his last nine international appearances, and he will be a threat aerially.

Wednesday 16th June Euro 2020 Fixtures

Italy v Switzerland Betting Tips — Roberto Mancini’s charges come flying out of the blocks

Setting the tone, and getting off to a good start, is imperative at any major international tournament. Italy certainly did just that. They laid down a marker of their intent with a sensational 3-0 victory over Turkey in the opening game of Euro 2020 on Friday night.Roberto Mancini’s men zipped the ball around with pace, and they were menacing every time they went forward. Ciro Immobile scored, and he teed up Lorenzo Insigne for a classy finish 10 minutes from the end of the game to wrap up a comfortable win. Italy overwhelmed Turkey as they racked up 24 attempts on goal and enjoyed the majority of possession (63%). Switzerland may have learned a thing or two from the Azzurri’s win, but if Italy can keep up the same tempo, Switzerland may struggle to contain them. Italy is a short 3/5 to collect three points against Switzerland.For Switzerland, they will have been disappointed by their draw against Wales in their opening game. Breel Embolo caught the eye as he was direct, and he planted home a header to give the Swiss the lead four minutes after the restart. However, they were denied by Kieffer Moore, who flicked the ball with his head into the bottom corner of the net.Had it not been for Danny Ward, then Switzerland may have run rampant. Nevertheless, there were some encouraging signs for the Swiss, and they will relish facing Italy. Embolo is at 5/1 to add to his tally against Italy.

Turkey v Wales Betting Tips — Senol Gunes returns to drawing board

Against Italy, Turkey offered very little going forward, and they looked brittle at the back. Although the own goal scored by Demiral as he tried to cut out a cross by Domenico Berardi was unfortunate, Turkey was very much second best.

It is clear from the outset how much of a blow being without Cenk Tosun is. Maybe attack could well be the best form of defence, but Turkey can’t go too gung-ho, or else they will get picked off by Gareth Bale and co. Turkey is better than what they have shown, well at least their win over France in qualifying wasn’t a complete fluke! At the time of writing, Turkey is 13/10 to beat Wales on Wednesday.

For Wales, meanwhile, the Red Wall travelled only in their hundreds to Baku, so the locals made it a more cavernous atmosphere. Wales had to soak up some pressure from Switzerland, and Embolo was a handful. Wales coach Robert Page reverted his formation to 4-2-3-1, and for long periods, the tactical change didn’t pay off. However, you would expect them to get their act together, and leave Baku with three points this time around.

Finland v Russia — Finns enjoy perfect start despite the emotional rollercoaster

As well as making their debut at the European Championships, Finland also endured an emotional rollercoaster. The sight of Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsing on the pitch was deeply worrying, but when the match resumed, Finland held their own, leaving it very late to pinch all three points thanks to a Joel Pohjanpalo header. Currently, Finland is rated at 5/1 to return maximum points from their first two group games.

In stark contrast, Russia was left flailing against Belgium in their opening Group B match, and they crashed to a 3-0 defeat. Russia was bullied at times by Romelu Lukaku, who fired in two goals. The former Manchester United striker admitted he was ‘scared’ when the news surrounding Eriksen filtered through. Speaking after the game, he said: “It was difficult to play the game. I hope he is healthy, and I dedicate this performance to him.”

Finland was expected to be the whipping boys of Group B, but they could well pick up another priceless win against Russia, which would alleviate any pressure against Belgium.
