Russia (-166) vs Finland (+399)

  • When: Wednesday, June 16

Why is Russia favored even though Finland beat Denmark in their first tournament match? Belgium blasted Russia 3-0. Romelu Lukaku scored 2 while Thomas Mueller also kicked in a goal. What’s worrisome if you’re a Russian backer is how the Belgians dominated even though their best player, Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, didn’t step onto the pitch.

But even though Belgium spanked Russia, Finland got a victory under extenuating circumstances. The Danes’ best player, Christian Eriksen, collapsed on the field. It turns out Eriksen’s heart stopped. Medics had to revive Eriksen.

Denmark played after they took Eriksen to the hospital. But Denmark’s minds weren’t on soccer. Finland took advantage to score the upset victory. On Wednesday, Russia will be looking to make amends for their horrible performance against Belgium. Give Russia the nod.  

Soccer Pick: Russia  

Wales (+202) vs Turkey (+127)

  • When: Wednesday, June 16

Turkey heads into this hoping to prove they belong at Euro 2020. Based on their first match, the Turks aren’t ready to face the quality of play they’re going to find in this tournament. Italy dominated Turkey 3-0. Before the bomb against Italy, Turkey had won 2-of-4 with a couple of draws.

Wales drew 1-1 with Switzerland in their first match at Euro 2020. After giving up an early goal, Kieffer Moore knocked in the equalizer at the seventy-ninth minute. Wales is lucky to escape with a victory.

To be fair, though, Switzerland is a good team, which is why Wales is the play. The odds imply Turkey is much better than the Swiss. But any team that draws 3-3 with Latvia or 0-0 with Guinea shouldn’t offer low odds to beat a team like Wales.   

Soccer Pick: Wales

Switzerland (+434) vs Italy (-181)

  • When: Wednesday, June 16

If handicap odds come out showing Italy -1 ½ for an above even money payout, consider it. The Italians are as aggressive as any team currently at Euro 2020. Merih Demiral, Ciro Immobile, and Lorenzo Insigne all scored against Turkey.

What’s scary is that Emerson didn’t even step onto the pitch. Federico Chiesa got some playing time, but he didn’t start, which shows how deep the Italian side is. Don’t get us wrong, the Swiss are a good soccer team. 

But after the first group match, Italy looks like a serious contender to win it all. The Italians won’t let up. They want to prove they’re on the level of Spain, France, and Germany. At least a 2 goal victory on Wednesday versus a quality squad like Switzerland will prove it. 

Soccer Pick: Italy
