Leagues Tipped:

Here we go! The wait is over. 12 months later that planned, we're ready for a festival of football. Bring it on!

Euro 2020 kicks-off tonight in Rome where Italy host Turkey in the tournament curtain raiser. It's the first of 51 games over the next 30 days that'll culminate in Scotland being crowned European Champions on July 11th! 😉

But seriously, there's always something special about major football tournaments and although this is one will be held in a unique set of circumstances it promises to be a cracker with six or seven nations in with a serious chance of winning the 16th edition of the European Championships.

Many people's idea of a dark horse this time around are Turkey, who go into the tournament in fine goalscoring form. Senol Gunez' side have found the net on 14 occasions in their last six matches but come up against one of the most misrly defences in international football.

Roberto Mancini's side have conceded just once in their last ten, in a 1-1 draw with the Netherlands back in October. 2-0 has been a popular scoreline for the Azzuri and it's 11/2 to land again. Italy are short enough at 1/2 to win but to Win to Nil they're a bit more attractive at 11/10.

Dutchman Danny Makkelie will be the man in the middle and will no doubt look to keep a lid on the tournament opener but he has a reputation for pointing to the spot, awarding 0.56 penalties per match last season – effectively one every two matches. With VAR in play the 7/4 on penalty being awarded could pay on Friday and throughout the tournament.

    Italy v Turkey

    Intriguing opening game in Rome for the start of Euro 2020. Looking ahead there’s definitely value to be had siding with selected underdogs as we delve into the tournament.
    Along with Portugal, Italy are a team I fancy to do well at this years tournament and they are my two picks to lift the trophy. Both are capable of nullifying France and Belgium when they meet or potentially meet as the tournament progresses.
    In the opening game, at home it is easy to see why Italy are odds on favourite. However, I expect Turkey to rustle a few feathers and It wouldn’t surprise me if Turkey can grab some kind of result tonight. They are a team capable of finding the back of the net and I’m happy to take the value offered with BTTS at 7/5.

    Best Bet:
    BTTS, 7/5, Unibet

    Score Prediction:
    Italy 2-1 Turkey

    Hungary/Ireland game a loser earlier in the week and have struggled to get on much since ❌

    Glad to see competitive games this weekend with the euros and some domestic leagues. Like the look of some of the euro tips especially France goals and on, but been having a good look as well for some potential value outwith the teams you’d expect to see in the latter stages.

    I do like the look of Italy’s opponents tonight , and since late 2018 they seem to have found a formula that works for them, playing 26 games, scoring in 21, winning 15, drawing 9, and losing 2. Even more impressive when you consider that includes a win and a draw against France, a draw against Germany, a draw with Croatia and wins against Norway, Russia, and the Netherlands to name a few more. A bit of luck added to that and I reckon they could cause a few upsets. Won’t be going mad on these with it all being one team, but think some of the prices are appealing. Will be an interesting game against a solid Italy , but tournament openers can be good for some drama.

    Not sure why iv taken a longshot on them to win though, Scotland already have this one in the bag 😅🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    Tournament bets – Turkey

    Turkey to qualify from group A and yilmaz to score 3+ @ 11/4 (Whill)

    Turkey to reach the quarter finals @ 13/5 (PP)

    Turkey to win outright @ 66/1 (PP)

    Turkey vs Italy

    Turkey to score @ 1/1 (bet365)

    Smaller stakes
    BTTS , both teams to receive a card and both teams over 1 corner @ 3/1 (bet365)

    Good luck all 🤞🤞

    • maccathered 7 months ago

      Just the first bet of the tournament except the Antepost.Will have a bet up every day.

  11. Jointhedots 7 months ago

    Neymar 9/2 top scorer Copa Amerca
    Mbappe 9/1 top scorer Euro 2020

    Double pays 54/1 with Hills

    Neymar has hardly played this year and Mbappe is a big stage player both should bag goals if both teams are regarded favourites to win the tournaments.

    Good luck everyone.

  12. tonys 7 months ago

    For anyone with a Grosvernor Casino account, they have the following offers on the Euros:

    1. £1 ‘free’ bet for each goal scored in any match featuring one of the Home Nations when you bet £10+ on the match (odds need to be 1.5 or above)

    2. £2 ‘free’ bet for every goal scored by your player if you have bet on him to be top goalscorer. Minimum bet £10

    If anyone sees any good offers please post here before kick off.

    I see PP and Bet365 are both offering free £5 bets on England / Croatia game. Ladbrokes didn’t seem to have much going on last time I looked.

    • tonys 7 months ago

      Betvictor‘s offers a bit underwhelming. Based around correct score and 1st goalscorer, but good i guess if these are your thing.

  13. ChrisBax 7 months ago

    William Hill‘s scratch of the day is giving everyone a free £2 bet.

    Guys, just noticed a significant change at PaddyPower on their BetBuilder (and ACCAs)

    In the past, you have to have at LEAST 4 selections – each with minimum odds of 1.2. If one leg lost, you’d get your money back as a free bet.

    It’s now been changed to at LEAST 4 selections – with a minimum TOTAL odds of 2.0 for the entire bet (i.e. no need for each leg to be minimum of 1.2)

    Paddy does rig your choice of BetBuilder options a bit. But I’ve done some ‘like for like’ comparisons against Bet365 and Hills, and Paddy’s BetBuilder usually gives the best rates (although Paddy’s ‘normal’ rates for overs goals etc are usually quite mean)

    HTH ;)

    Nueva Chicago
    Argentine Primera B Nacional

    Nueva Chicago to score 10-11 🇦🇷 NAP/NB (double stake 🇦🇷 (BETWAY)

    Just the one bet so doubled stake as it’s NAP and NB.

    Bottom 2 face off and both will be looking for a rare win, and a rare goal even 😳.

    Nueva scored in their last 3 games which is rate for them and last away game won 1-0 at leaders gimnasia.
    Nueva scored exactly one goal in 4 of 5 head to head here, though they are a long time ago.

    Home team temperley have conceded in their last 8 league games and conceded 2+ in their 4 home league games

    Prediction 1-1

    Turkey didn’t look great but the Italian motor was purring very impressively in this opener!
