The Euros Roll On An Here’s Some Great Bets For The Next Few Games
The opening group stage of the Euros is now almost complete. Over the next two nights, the final games in the group stage of the tournament will be completed in Groups D, E and F, starting with the games today in Group D which see England and Scotland in action against the Czech Republic and Croatia respectively.
This is followed by a double-header of games on Wednesday with the action in Group E being followed by the final two games in Group F, with a host of top European sides including Spain, France, Portugal and Germany in action that day.
So far, we know that Italy, Wales, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Austria have qualified as the top two teams from Groups A, B and C, and we also know that Switzerland will be one of the third-best teams to qualify for the Round of 16.
Finland and Ukraine are sweating, with the Finns in the worst position with a -2 goal difference compared to Ukraine’s -1.

Tuesday 22nd June
Czech Republic v England
After a very poor performance against Scotland, England boss Gareth Southgate will want a reaction from his team and even though both these teams are into the Round of 16, the winner here will take top spot (with the Czech Republic staying top if the game ends in a draw).
For England, the carrot of playing their Round of 16 game at Wembley is one that is tempting them and I think they will pick a very strong team for this game. I also think that having beaten this team 5-0 in the qualifiers for this tournament, the home team should be confident.
However, the Czech’s have looked dangerous and they also beat England 2-1 in Prague in the reverse game in those qualifiers and I fully expect them to make life tough for England, especially with the home fans expecting a much better display. I do think England will give it them though and pick up the win here.
Our Top Tips
- England to win and both teams to score – 3/1
- Phil Foden to score at any time – 21/10
- Total Goals – Over 2.5 – 11/10
- Correct Score – England 3-1 Czech Republic – 16/1
Croatia v Scotland
Both teams know that it is win or bust for them if they are to reach the second phase of the tournament and as such, I am expecting a much more open game than you would ordinarily get between these two sides.
I do worry that plays into Croatia’s hands a little given the attacking flair that they possess but I do feel this Croatia side does lack energy and that is something the Scots have showed in abundance in both their previous games and I think that could be the decisive factor here.
Playing on home soil as well will also help the Scots and I do feel they can perhaps cause an upset here. If they can keep Croatia out, then I fancy the Scots to nick a goal to claim their first ever spot in the latter stages of a major tournament.
Our Top Tips
- Scotland to win – 7/4
- Che Adams to Score at any time – 13/8
- Total Goals – Under 2.5 – 19/20
- Correct Score – Scotland 1-0 Croatia – 17/2
Wednesday 23rd June
Slovakia v Spain
It’s fair to say that of all the top nations, Spain are the one that has struggled the most in this tournament so far, drawing both their games against relatively weaker opponents. However, I expect Luis Enrique’s team to put things right here against Slovakia.
The Slovakian’s just need a point in this game and if that happens and Poland were to win, then Spain would be eliminated. So I don’t think the Spanish can take anything for granted here having just got two points in the board thus far.
As such, I am expecting a much better and more clinical Spanish performance than we have seen in the past two games, and I think they should come through this one with a much more solid and convincing win.
Our Top Tips
- Spain to win and both teams to score – no – 8/11
- Dani Olmo to score at any time – 7/5
- HT/FT – Spain / Spain – 4/6
- Correct Score – Spain 3-0 Slovakia – 6/1
Poland v Sweden
Sweden’s recent record against Poland is superb, with five wins in a row and just one defeat in their last 11 games against the Poles. However, the last meeting was back in 2004, so it is probably not fair to compare that run against the modern teams.
Sweden have already qualified for the knockout phase of the tournament so they can relax but Poland need a win and I think that given they have Robert Lewandowski, who scored their leveller against Spain in their last game, they have a chance to pick up the three points they need here.
Sweden are tough so I can’t see many goals in this one, but I think Lewandowski may get the decisive strike which will put both of these teams into the Round of 16.
Our Top Tips
- Poland to win – 6/4
- Robert Lewandowski to score at any time – 6/5
- Total Goals – Under 2.5 – 4/6
- Correct Score – Sweden 0-1 Poland – 15/2
Germany v Hungary
After a poor start against France in this tournament, Germany came to life against Portugal, racking up a 4-2 victory in what was a fabulous display. They now face a home game against Hungary, who need a win in order to progress into the Round of 16 themselves.
Hungary’s chances of achieving that though are very slim against a German side who should have their confidence and swagger back after that win over Portugal. However, with just three points, the Germans are not yet assured of qualification themselves, so they won’t want to slip up here.
In truth, I can’t see them doing so. Hungary will make it difficult initially but I think once Germany have grabbed a goal then the floodgates will open as they did against Portugal and as such, I think Germany will stroll to a comfortable win.
Our Top Tips
- Germany to win and both teams to score – no – 20/21
- Serge Gnabry to score at any time – 5/6
- Total Goals – Over 2.5 – 2/5
- Correct Score – Germany 3-0 Hungary – 7/1
France v Portugal
The World Cup Winners face the European Champions, who beat them in the final in 2016 to claim the trophy. France certainly will be confident ahead of this game as they have a superb record against Portugal, winning 11 of the last 13 games between the teams, drawing one and losing just the one.
Portugal know a point is required for them to qualify for the knockout phase but will they be able to pick that up against a France team that have already qualified and who may elect to rest some players for the next phase?
You’d think that would increase Portugal’s chances but I also feel France will want to top this group and only a win for them here would be enough to do so. As such, I am of the belief that on a neutral ground, France will do just enough to claim the win here in what should be an exciting and high quality game.
And if Portugal can keep that loss down to one goal, they should still qualify for the Round of 16.
Our Top Tips
- France to win and both teams to score – 4/1
- Kylian Mbappe to score at any time – 8/5
- Total Goals – Over 2.5 – 13/10
- Correct Score – France 2-1 Portugal – 10/1
