11th June, Stade Vélodrome. Betting Preview, Odds And Tips
With just a few days until the start of the greatest football competition this summer has to offer, soccer fans and betting fans from all over the world are stepping up their game and preparing for Euro 2016. We’ve all had months and months of analysis, game watching and writing predictions, which we will now see how they fared in real-game conditions.
Of course, most of the eyes are concentrated on France vs Romania: France – 1.27 x – 5.20 Romania – 13.50 with NetBet, the game which will open the championship, but there are some other games which have also caught our attention. The first of them takes place just one day after the grand opening and wages England vs Russia: England – 1.90 x – 3.30 Russia – 5.00 with Bet365.
The English team looked very well in recent friendlies, showing composure, determination and great ability to score. Their lack of big competition experience (in some areas) has been clear, but if they manage to surpass it for long periods of time, they should progress well beyond the group stage this year.
We don’t know for sure who will start up front – Kane, Vardy (the main 2 goalscorers of the Premier League), veteran Rooney or youngster Rashford?
On the other hand, Russia is vastly seen as a team beyond its peak. They’ve changed a lot of their core players over the last few years, but this doesn’t mean that they don’t have their arguments to win – Artem Dzyuba is clearly one of them. On paper, the Russians seem favorites to win second place in this group.
From a betting perspective, we are expecting England’s victory, but not without the Russians putting up a fight. We do consider that both teams will score, so the most probable scores are 2-1 or 3-1 for the English side.
Both Teams To Score: 2.20 with NetBet
Exact Score: 3:1 17.50 with 138.com
If you’re looking for more security, just bet that England will score, Russia will only score a goal, or try going the double-chance way, 1X: 1.18 with 138.com. These last ideas won’t bring you great winnings, but are very safe bets. And maybe add a goalscorer – Harry Kane: 2.25 with NetBet.
