Friday 1 July, 21:00 (Lille). Betting Preview, Odds And Tips
The second quarter final of Euro 2016 brings together a revelation, Wales, and a team who got progressively better game after game, Belgium. Although Belgium progressing seems like the obvious end result, it’s really not that easy – and lots of people want to see Wales progress and witness history in the making. Will they make it?
Odds At European Betting Sites:
Wales 5.25 or 17/4 Draw 3.40 or 12/5 Belgium 1.85 or 17/20
Wales do have some arguments on their side. They play good, pragmatic football, and managed to top group B, after wins against Russia and Slovakia. They dominated the weirdest round of 16 clash against Northern Ireland and won thanks to an own goal, and are now in the Quarter Finals in their first participation. Not bad at all.
They also have a very good reason to be optimistic: Gareth Bale seems in great form. He sprints, he dribbles, he finished from close range, long range, free kicks, headers – he is the sort of player who can win a game by himself.
While Wales kind of rely solely on Bale, Belgium have their fair share of players who can win a game individually. Hazard, Lukaku, De Bruyne or Carrasco are just a few – with the first and last getting on the scoresheet of the 4-0 thumping of Hungary in the round of 16.
They started off horribly, losing 0-2 against Italy, but found their momentum and played better and better with each passing game. They start as favorites for a place in the semi-final where they will probably face Portugal.
We believe that Belgium will qualify and score a few goals past their opponents. Betting on Belgium & over 2,5 goals is a good idea and brings a great odd, while those solely on Belgium qualifying are not too bad either. The most likely goalscorer we see is Lukaku – he knows the Welsh defenders very well from the Premier League and should resume his scoring streak sooner rather than later.
Belgium Win & Over 2.5 Goals – 3.00 or 2/1
Belgium Win & Both To Score – 4.75 or 15/4
Goalscorers: Romelu Lukaku – 2.25 or 5/4 & Gareth Bale – 2.50 or 6/4
Bets On EURO 2016 – Previews And Tips
The wait is over, the teams are known, the final is upon us – we return to the Stade de France, where we kicked off this footballing celebration exactly one month ago, on June 10th. One of the teams that featured in that game, France, made it all the way to the final. They practically returned to the place they started their adventure, in front of the same fans, but with two major differences: tonight, they are fighting for the title, and against different opposition: they no longer face Romania, but Ronaldo’s trophy-hungry Portugal. Betting Odds: Portugal 4.50 or 7/2 Draw 3.20 or 11/5 France 2.05 or 21/20 Portugal are the surprise presence in this year’s final. Not necessarily because…
What can be more exciting in the semi-finals of a great tournament like Euro 2016 than a clash between the host nation, France, and reigning world champions, Germany? The game is the absolute peak of footballing performance and will truly have everything – technique, great tactics, star players and hopefully goals. The general consensus states that the winner of this semi-final will go on and win the title, easily surpassing Portugal or Wales. Even if that is true, there still is a question to answer: who will progress from this game in Marseille? Betting Odds: Germany 3.00 or 2/1 Draw 3.00 or 2/1 France 2.80 or 9/5 We will look first at Germany, which are unbeaten so far in this…
After almost a month of games, Euro 2016 is drawing to a close. We just have two more semifinals before the major celebration that is the tournament’s final, but let’s not be too hasty. The two semifinals will surely produce great quality games, passionate encounters and will feature teams which will fight desperately for a place in the last game. The first semi-final will take place on the 7th of July at Lyon, and will feature Portugal versus the surprise of this year’s championship: Wales. Betting Odds: Portugal 2.20 or 6/5 Draw 3.10 or 21/10 Wales 4.00 or 3/1 Wales qualified for the first time for a major tournament this year. They were dubbed as the weakest team in group…
