International soccer teams are gearing up for the June 11 start to Euro 2020. The massive tournament was supposed to happen last year. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Euros moved to 2021. With club play in the rearview mirror, teams are hoping to ready themselves this week in friendlies before playing in matches that count. Check out MyBookie International Friendlies odds, analysis, and free picks for eight of the best international friendly matches happening on Friday, June 4.
International Friendly Soccer Games Worth the Bet On June 4th
Friday, June 4th Matches
- Kazakhstan +383 / North Macedonia -161
At Euro 2020, North Macedonia could be the surprise team in Group C. The Macedonians upset international power Germany via a 2-1 score on March 31. On June 1, North Macedonia drew 1-1 with Slovenia. Give the Macedonians a big nod.
Soccer Pick: North Macedonia
- Malta +592 / Kosovo -232
In their only head-to-head matches, both in 2018, Kosovo dominated. Malta has lost 3-of-5 with a couple of draws. Kosovo won their June 1 match 4-1 against San Marino. Expect Kosovo to beat Malta by a similar score. So if MyBookie posts handicap odds on Kosovo giving up 1 ½ or more goals, consider going for it.
Soccer Pick: Kosovo handicap
- Estonia +800 / Finland -303
Finland should dominate Estonia, no doubt. But the fifty-fourth ranked Finnish don’t always step it up in international friendly matches. On March 31, Sweden, a great soccer team, beat Estonia 1-0. Estonia beat Lithuania 1-0 on June 1. The odds make Estonia an overlay and based on recent form, Estonia has a shot.
Soccer Pick: Estonia
- Portugal +204 / Spain +112
Two Euro 2020 favorites hit the pitch to tighten the screws. Both Portugal and Spain should play a great tournament once it starts on June 11. FIFA ranks Portugal fifth in the world. The soccer organization ranks Spain sixth. Both teams have enough star players to garner a bet. Which team takes this friendly? We’re siding with the Portuguese because Ronaldo will want to get comfortable with his mates while the Spanish are likely to hold back in this.
Soccer Pick: Portugal
- Czech Republic +375 / Italy -172
The Czech Republic has a shot. But recent form suggests they fall in this. Italy could be on the verge of a soccer renaissance. The Italians dominated San Marino 7-0 in their last. Napoli forward Matteo Politano scored a couple of goals and that was off the bench. Politano is 27-years-old. 24-year-old Atalanta midfielder Matteo Pessina scored 2. Italy should roll.
Soccer Pick: Italy
- Iceland -172 / Faroe Islands +380
Neither squad is in excellent form. Iceland hung with Mexico in their last, though, losing by a single goal. On March 31, Scotland dumped Faroe Islands 4-0. Iceland is the play.
Soccer Pick: Iceland
- Gibraltar +3 ½ (-158) / Slovenia -3 ½ (+119)
Gibraltar has lost 3 straight. Slovenia has lost 2-of-3. We’d take the 3 ½ goals on Gibraltar, but Slovenia could break out with at least 4 goals in this. On March 27, Montenegro beat Gibraltar 4-1. The Netherlands dominated Gibraltar 7-0 on March 30. Consider backing Slovenia to cover the handicap.
Soccer Pick: Slovenia
