Euro 2020 Final Betting Tips
England are very narrow favorites with the top sportsbooks to claim victory on Sunday. But Italy simply cannot be ignored here and bettors are already jumping on the moneyline at sports betting sites to back the Azzurri at good odds. Here are three soccer betting tips you may want to consider for the final…
Looking at the odds, it’s clear that the smartest bet when determining risk is to back Italy. These teams are just as good as each other and you could flip a coin to work out who wins the Euro 2020 final. So why not go with the team with the greater odds? What’s more, Italy have a rich history in making Euro and World Cup finals, while this is England’s first since 1966. The Azzurri’s price is too good to ignore here. Jump on the betting apps and take advantage of Italy’s current price.
Don't Expect Lots Of Goals
The final is always a showcase event but we shouldn’t expect fireworks here. Both teams play best in defense mode and this could be a cagey game with few goalscoring opportunities. The likes of Kalvin Phillips and Harry Maguire have been defensively sensational for England, while Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are rocks at the back for Italy. Indeed, the game could be decided by just one goal.
Extra Time A Possibility
This final could easily go to extra time. Both teams played an additional 30 minutes in their semifinals, and both will keep it tight at Wembley. If a single goal hasn’t settled the game by 90 minutes, then the additional 30 could produce a winner. The moneyline price of +190 at DraftKings on a tie and extra time being played is a smart shout.
Euro 2020 Final Pick
This game is almost too close to call – but if you feel the need to predict a winner then Italy is your team. England has been wonderful this summer, but Italy has been sensational. The Italians have defensive discipline, a hard-working midfield and a wonderfully exuberant offense. Backing Italy is to follow the odds, which is what smart bettors do.
As for Euro 2020 prop bets, a 0-0 tie by 90 minutes is priced at +575 at DraftKings , while Luke Shaw is statistically the most likely player to provide an assist. The defender is +600 at the same site to create a goal for a teammate.
