The “Group of Death” at Euro 2020 gets underway Tuesday as Portugal, France and Germany attempt to create an early advantage in this tournament. Hungary can take solace in the competition’s results so far with several overlooked teams producing big results. Here’s how the public is betting the first Group F matches.
June 15 betting splits
Hungary vs. Portugal
Hungary (+700): 4% handle, 2% bets
Tie (+340): 6% handle, 4% bets
Portugal (-225): 90% handle, 94% bets
As expected, Portugal is receiving a ton of love from the bettors. It is heavily favored in this match and the public is going that way with 94 percent of bets. Hungary is flying way under the radar and could pull off the upset. Portugal has struggled early in international competitions, but they’re the reigning Euro champions and should have no trouble here.
France vs. Germany
France (+165): 76% handle, 62% bets
Tie (+215): 8% handle, 16% bets
Germany (+190): 16% handle, 22% bets
It’s surprising how much money and bets are coming in on France given the relative even matchup. The French squad is better on paper, but Germany is no slouch. This is manager Joachim Low’s last tournament before stepping down and he’ll want to make it a memorable campaign. The public is going France, but this should be close.
