NO side – apart from maybe Portugal or Sweden – relies as much on one man as Wales do so Gareth Bale will have to be at the top of his game in France.

The Welsh open their campaign against Slovakia and I don't think they have enough to win. In fact they don't have much more than Bale and Aaron Ramsay and recent form is worrying with only Andorra beaten in eight games.

Bookies are struggling to call this one with Wales a best 19-10 at McBookie and William Hill and Slovakia 19-10 at Coral and Betfred. The draw is possible at 2-1 with McBookie while I'm tempted by Slovakia draw no bet at 20-23 with McBookie.

Bale is 4-1 with Ladbrokes and William Hill to score first with Ramsay 19-2 at 888sport. Slovakian dangerman Marek Hamsik of Napoli is 17-2 at Stan James to break the deadlock.

Under 2.5 goals looks a good shout at 1-2 with betfair while the opening goal after 34 at 11-10 with Paddy Power is also worth a look.

Bets to Consider

Slovakia draw no bet

Hamsik to score

Under 2.5 match goals

Opening goal after 34 mins
