It's been four years and it's Euro time again.
I didn't post very often in my soccer thread this year, but the games I did post were pretty good. Hopefully this Euro will make us some money and provide a good spectacle for everyone.
So lets get things going.
My bets will be from bet365 as always unless otherwise stated.
Poland - Greece
Pick: Greece @ 4.00
Pick 2: 1st half injury time 1 minute @ 1.44
A lot of people are on Poland since they are co-hosts. Greece is being very underestimated here. My first thought was to go with the under 2.5, but that had only 1.44 odds. Instead I took the 1st half injury time to be 1 minute. This is a bet that hits a huge percentage of the time so why not get paid even though it's only at 1.44?
Also Greece was the European Champions in 2004 and they have a strong and dependable team. They have gone undefeated for around 20 games (I'm not sure exactly at the moment) and most of their games have been under 2.5 goals. The 4.00 odds are just too tempting and I'll take my chances. I might lose, but if I get paid it will be sweet.
Russia - Czech Republic
Pick: Russia @ 2.40
Russia is the favorite for the win. At midfield they are quite dangerous and I don't think the young Czech team will win even though they have Peter Czech at goal.
