Wales will start their Euro 2016 campaign against a Slovakian team who are on a mission. Both teams will know that they have chances to run deep in this competition and a win will be on the minds of all the players.
Wales are currently in a golden generation with the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey leading their lines. This team has a lot of goals in them and I think at times they will have the best player on the pitch player for them through Gareth Bale. This is a huge boost for them and I think they might be very strong in this tournament. If they do face problems, it will be at the back since the experience and skill is not to the same level. That being said I think they should be just fine for this game and I expect them to start their campaign of with a win.
Slovakia beat Germany in a friendly not long ago and that has got their fans in a buzz. I don’t think that win meant much simply since Germany were not at full strength and the pitch was a puddle so that neutralized a lot of the skill. I think this side will be a flop with the likes of Hamsik in bad form.
As far as betting is concerned for this game, I think we are getting a good enough price to simply put money on Wales to win. This should get through more than 2 in 3 times so it is value and I think it is also quite a safe bet. Both teams to score also looks like a pretty good bet but the outright result bet is by far the safest and most profitable play in this situation.
