The next two rounds of Euro 2020 qualifiers take place over six days, giving us heaps of chances to make some money on the soccer this week.
I’m predicting high-scoring wins for Portugal and Ukraine, while England may not have it all their own way against Czech Republic.
Let’s take a look at the best bets for Friday’s UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifying games.
Czech Republic vs. England – 10/11/19
England have won their first 4 qualifying matches in Group A and are looking like the only genuine candidate to finish top of the group. Czech Republic are 3 points behind England, but the table toppers do have a game in hand. England have scored a whopping 19 goals in their 4 matches at a rate of just under 5 goals per game so far. However, their defense looked unconvincing last time out against Kosovo as it conceded 3 goals. For that reason, both teams to score and England to come away with all three points makes sense for this match.
Pick: England to Win and Both Teams to Score – 3.40
Portugal vs. Luxembourg - 10/11/19
After drawing their opening 2 matches, Portugal appear to be back to their best following back-to-back wins. They beat Serbia 4-2 before putting 5 past Lithuania and they look set to post a big score against Luxembourg. The visitors have conceded 8 goals in their first 5 matches in Group B, and with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Felix thirsty for goals, Luxembourg could be in for a thrashing. Portugal are likely to continue their run of high-scoring matches with another convincing win on Friday.
Pick: Portugal to Win and Over 3.5 Goals – 1.89
Ukraine vs. Lithuania – 10/11/19
Remarkably, Ukraine have conceded just once in 5 qualifying matches so far. They sit at the top of Group B – 5 points clear of second-place Portugal – after winning 4 and drawing 1. On the other hand, Lithuania are the group’s lowest scoring side with 4 goals in 5 games. They have also conceded the most goals (15) and are conceding at an average of 3 goals per game. Given the two team’s contrasting defensive records, Ukraine should win this comfortably. They are likely to score 3 or more goals while keeping a clean sheet in the process.
Pick: Ukraine to Win, Keep a Clean Sheet and Over 2.5 Goals – 2.23
