UEFA European Championship Weekend Matches Worth Betting On
UEFA Euro Cup 2020 – Weekend Matches
- When: Friday, June 11 – Sunday, June 13
Friday, June 11th Match
- Italy -1 ½ (+148) / Turkey +1 ½ (-192)
Italy is on fire. The Italians haven’t allowed a goal in their last 5 matches, outscoring their opponents a combined 17-0. Turkey is in decent form with 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5, but Italy is a Euro 2020 favorite. It’s difficult to see Turkey scoring while the Italians are a much more aggressive bunch than they have been in years. Italy by at least 2.
Soccer Pick: Italy
Saturday, June 12th Matches
- Switzerland +110 / Wales +252
Like Italy, Switzerland is hot. The Swiss have dominated recent opponents, including beating Leichtenstein 7-0 and the CONCACAF Nations League Champions, the United States, 2-0. At above even money odds, Switzerland is an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Switzerland
- Finland +1 ½ (-158) / Denmark -1 ½ (+137)
Denmark has 4 wins and a draw in their last 5. The Danes should take this no problem. The big question is whether they win by at least two. Finland could keep this to within a goal, but Denmark has played so well recently that it’s impossible not to back them at the more than fair +137 odds.
Soccer Pick: Denmark
- Russia +362 / Belgium -147
Belgium wins. If MyBookie posts the Belgians at -1 ½ instead of -½, consider backing Lukaku, De Bruyne, Hazard and the rest on the handicap. -147 makes Belgium an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Belgium
Sunday, June 13th Matches
- Croatia +399 / England -163
On paper, the English should roll. But Harry McGuire won’t play. That could give Luka Modric and Croatia enough confidence to push more forward than they normally would. A lot is riding on England to make waves at Euro 2020. The English don’t always respond well to pressure. Croatia may not win. They could force a draw.
Soccer Pick: Draw
- North Macedonia +145 / Austria -165
21 European soccer league players step onto the pitch for Austria. That alone gives Austria an edge over North Macedonia. But North Macedonia is a tight group. The North Macedonians blasted Kazhakstan 5-0 on June 4. In the match before, N. Macedonia drew with Slovenia 1-1. North Macedonia upset Germany 2-1 on March 31. Give the underdogs a shot.
Soccer Pick: North Macedonia
- Ukraine +143 / Netherlands -163
The Ukraine is going to take a political image off their jerseys. The fact the Ukrainians had a political image on their jerseys might be a sign Ukraine isn’t thinking about soccer. Or it could be a sign the Ukrainians are fired up for this UEFA European Championship. Because the Ukraine has won 2 straight, chances are it’s the latter.
Soccer Pick: Ukraine
