Euro 2020 knockout round action begins June 26 when Wales takes on Denmark and Italy meets Austria. Denmark secured qualification with a 4-1 win over Russia and will look to keep things going against Wales. Italy won all three of its group games and is receiving the most money in future odds ahead of the knockout round.

Here’s how the public is betting Saturday’s games.

Saturday, June 26 betting splits

Wales vs. Denmark

Wales (+425): 25% handle, 21% bets
Tie (+225): 3% handle, 11% bets
Denmark (-120): 72% handle, 68% bets

Even though Denmark struggled to qualify for the knockout round until the final group stage match, the public is heavily favoring the Danes over Wales. Gareth Bale is proving he’s still got a lot left in the tank and Aaron Ramsey is a star in the midfield, making Wales a potential value pick at +425. Denmark is likely also getting some love due to support for Christian Eriksen, who is reportedly healthy and in good spirits after collapsing on the pitch in the opening match vs. Finland.

Italy vs. Austria

Italy (-210): 96% handle, 89% bets
Tie (+320): 3% handle, 7% bets
Austria (+700): 1% handle, 4% bets

No surprise here with 96 percent of the money and 89 percent of wagers coming in on Italy, who is among the favorites to win the whole tournament. Austria presents a stellar challenge, but likely won’t have the firepower to spring an upset. The Azzurri are locked in and have flourished playing a style different from previous Italian units.
