Denmark and England face off on Wednesday, July 7 at 3 p.m. ET in the Euro 2020 semifinals. The match will air on ESPN. England is a -286 favorite to advance at DraftKings Sportsbook, while Denmark is a +220 underdog.

Denmark is finding a way to turn a scary incident with Christian Eriksen into motivation. The team needed a massive victory over Russia in the last group stage match just to get into the knockout round and has carried that momentum all the way to the semifinal. Kasper Schmeichel will need to be strong in goal again if Denmark wants to stop England’s potent attack.

England blanked Germany while getting Harry Kane going with his first goal of the competition. Kane turned that performance into two more goals against Ukraine in the quarterfinal round, meaning the striker could be rounding into form. Raheem Sterling continues to be excellent for England.

Italy vs. Spain

Italy: +150 (to advance -134)
Tie: +220
Spain: +205 (to advance +110)
Total goals: 2.5 (Over +130, Under -159)

Regular time ML pick: Italy +150
Team to advance pick: Italy -134
Best bet: Ciro Immobile to score +235

Immobile failed to get on the board against Belgium, but Spain’s back line is far more vulnerable. The forward is going to get plenty of opportunities with Italy’s high-powered attack and dynamic style of play. He should be able to get back on track in this game. Italy is the favorite to advance and has shown no signs of cracking under pressure. Spain is talented, but doesn’t have the veteran presence of past teams. Expect this match to be relatively close early before Italy creates separation late.
