Handicap markets are priced up by the majority of bookmakers and it's proving to be particularly popular in football matches where one team is heavily favoured over the other.

Why the Euro 2024 Handicap market is worth exploring

Having this market to make use of can enable bettors to squeeze more value out of any given game in comparison to the traditional win/draw/lose odds on offer. Given that, Euro 2024 will throw up its share of fixtures that seem like mismatches on paper, attacking the handicap market could prove a successful path to profit.

Which Euro 2024 games could be of interest here?

Portugal vs France

Portugal and France face off at the quarter-final stage of Euro 2024 at the Volksparkstadion on Friday night.

These two teams were heavily touted to conquer the continent ahead of the tournament but something will have to give in Hamburg.

Both nations have underwhelmed with their performances so far and a low-scoring affair is anticipated in this last-eight showdown.

While France are 7/5 (Betfred) favourites, they don’t tend to blow teams away, so star-studded Portugal should give punters a good run for their money with some form of handicap advantage.

England vs Switzerland

England have stumbled their way through to the quarter-final stages of Euro 2024 and they will have to put in a much-improved showing to get past Switzerland.

Gareth Southgate’s side squeezed past Serbia 1-0 in their opening match of the tournament and have since drawn their subsequent three matches with Denmark, Slovenia and Slovakia inside 90 minutes.

Switzerland’s showings up until this juncture would suggest that they will represent a serious upgrade on England’s previous challenges.

Murat Yakin’s men pushed Germany all the way in a 1-1 draw and have since sent Italy packing with relative ease.

With that in mind, the 11/4 (Betfred) Swiss could be worth getting onside with some form of handicap. 

Netherlands vs Turkey

Netherlands take on Turkey at the quarter-final stage of Euro 2024 at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on Saturday night.

After placing third in Group D, Ronald Koeman’s side impressed when running out 3-0 winners against Romania in the round of 16.

However, Vincenzo Montella’s vibrant young Turkey team should prove a much tougher nut for the Dutch to crack. 

The Crescent Stars have lost just one of their last 10 competitive matches and merit consideration with a +1 handicap start at 11/8 on Betfred.
