Italy v Spain: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

This hinges on how Italy defend. If they get sucked back into the safety blanket of deep defending, then Spain can pass circles around them and, likely, eventually break through. If they actually attack and engage then it could take a different turn. Especially if Italy can impose a higher tempo on the game. In this, they’re aided by the fact that most of the front six took the third group game off, whereas Del Bosque kept the same lineup. But the loss of Candreva is a blow to Italy. Not easy to find value, but over 2.5 goals, in…

England v Iceland: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

The Icelandic story has captured everybody’s imagination. And, yes, it is a great tale. But it’s also true that they conceded plenty of chances in the groups, particularly against Portugal. And that while the deep defending doesn’t suit England’s game, the gap in quality is bigger, I think, than many realize. It could take Hodgson’s crew a while to break down that stout Icelandic defence, but they really ought to have enough quality to do so. On this basis the way to play this one is to go for the second half as the half for the first goal at…

Argentina v Chile: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

Argentina are odds on here, despite both their injuries and Chile’s impressive performances leading into this final.  We’ve been here before and the Argentines have suffered heartbreak against Chile before. In this final just one year ago to be precise. That game went all the way and I don’t think this one is getting resolved in 90 minutes either, and, what’s more, given the attacking oomph on both sides, there’s a good chance they’ll both get on the scoresheet. I’d take the draw and both to score at 7/2. All our today’s tips are here. Single: Lost Argentina v Chile…

Hungary v Belgium: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

A lot here depends on which Belgium we get, “good Belgium” or the one we saw against Italy.  What we do know is that Marc Wilmots won’t change his tactic so we’ll get Belgium attacking, perhaps a bit disorganized, but on front foot anyway. Hungary have surprised many and, of course, put three past Portugal. But there’s a reason they were rank outsiders. Again, I’m thinking over 2.5 goals at 13/8, a generous price and something more than likely if Belgium score early. Enhanced odds!

France v Republic of Ireland: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

France are solid favorites here as you’d expect. They are the hosts and although they haven’t played especially well, they’ve managed to come through to the knockouts with relative ease. I find it tricky to find value in this one. Republic of Ireland are capable of defending in numbers and being physical but a lot will depend on the officiating here and I don’t see it going their way. With the bookies all leaning towards the under, I’m going overs again. There is the possibility of a big France win and also Ireland getting on the scoresheet, especially if they…

Germany v Slovakia: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

Germany are clearly favorites here and it’s not surprising. But I wonder if there’s value in going the other way. The fact is that Slovakia showed they can defend in numbers. And with Germany going with the big center forward option (Mario Gomez is expected to start) it’s a decent match-up with Martin Skrtel. The Slovak midfield matches up well physically too and a price of Slovakia +1 at 17/10 is too good to pass up. Enhanced odds!

Portugal v Croatia: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

Croatia are favorites here, probably on the strength of beating Spain.  But I also think they could well pay a price for what’s happening off the pitch between the Ultras and the federation. Caught in the middle are the players and it simply adds another unwelcome layer of pressure. Portugal, and especially Ronaldo, were heavily criticized for not winning a single game during the group stages, but they created plenty of chances, especially against Iceland and Austria. And now that Ronaldo is on the scoresheet, it’s hard to see him slowing down. Back Portugal at 3.1 or, for more value,…

Wales v Northern Ireland: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

I’m struck by the over/under market. There’s a perception that Northern Ireland are just uber-defensive, park the bus types. And that’s what they were against Germany and Poland. But that’s not how they played against Ukraine and there’s no guarantee that they’ll do that in this game. Also, even with park the bus sides, an early goal opens everything up and Wales can be devastating on the counter. For that reason – and the fact that Wales hit the overs in two of three group matches – plus the hugely generous 21/10, I’m going with over 2.5 goals here. All…

Switzerland v France: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

France obviously had a few wobbles against Albania just as they did against Romania in the opener. That’s why I guess they are not as big favourites as I would have expected. But Switzerland simply aren’t going to defend as well as Albania managed too in my opinion. They’ll feel the pressure to go for a win since a place in the Round 16 is pretty much locked up. And in all honesty I can see France winning again here, maybe going for France -1 goal handicap, that’s pretty generous at 5/2. If Switzerland attack which is likely, there should be plenty…

Belgium v Ireland: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

Belgium can’t possibly be as badly organized as they were against Italy. It’s simply not viable. Even though Italy defended well and Belgium played poorly, the thing is Belgium still carved out opportunities. I expect the same to happen here, even though Belgium will be under pressure after the defeat in the opener. Belgium will undoubtedly attack and with the quality they’ve got it would be surprising if they didn’t score, although Ireland can also cause a threat, particularly on the counter. I really like the look of over 2.5 goals at EVS in this one. All the other Gabriele’s…

Iceland v Hungary: Gabriele Marcotti’s betting tip (VIDEO)

The bookmakers name Iceland as favourites here – it’s all because of the result of the draw against Portugal, no doubt. That was very impressive indeed, and it’s a great story. But I wonder if maybe they can be a little bit carried away here. I thought that game could have easily ended with a big win for Portugal, and if that happened, nobody would be making Iceland a favourites here. Hungary on the other hand are coming off a 2:0 win over Austria. Tactically this one will be interesting as both teams played on the break in their opening games, but…

Poland v Northern Ireland. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

Northern Ireland have gone an incredible amount of games undefeated and they also have another brilliant stat: they haven’t conceded goals in the 1st half. However, the bookmakers are not convinced and make Poland the favourites, and you can see why especially since Kyle Lafferty is doubtful for Northern Ireland. He is very important for holding up the ball, on set pieces and in defence too. Still Northern Ireland streak of non-conceding in the 1st half is remarkable so I would go for under 0.5 goals in the 1st half. I think that makes sense. Single: Won Poland v Northern…

Wales v Slovakia. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

Both these teams know that, at least on paper, the other two sides in the group are favourites. So, the draw is not that useful to either. Bookies have gone strong for unders here, too strong for my opinion. Both are defensive sides and there’s an old cliché of avoiding defeat in the first game. However, looking at these prices, over 2.5 goals at 7/4 is too good to pass up. Single: Won Wales v Slovakia 11.06.2016 17:00 BST EURO 2016 Bet: Over 2.5 goals @ Will the bet win?

England v Russia. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

The injury of Alan Dzagoev and the unavailability of Igor Denisov are the main issues for Russia, but they still have a strong attack with Artyom Dzyuba. England have a lot of pace and enthusiasm, but they also have a lot of unanswered questions. Of course, England are the favourites as Russia are well behind in FIFA rankings. However, the prices are squeezing enough to go for Russia with handicap +1 at 17/20.

Serbia v Russia. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

Russia have a few issues ahead of their first game against England. Serbia are still on a holiday, but it’s a solid Serbian side and motivation is never an issue for them. The bookmakers expect a low-scoring game, but I’m not convinced about this at all. Russia will want to work on what they can do going forward ahead of their game with England, while Serbia can play without pressure and are likely to get chances of their own, maybe on the counter. You can get both teams to score and a draw at 4.20 with William Hill. Single: Won…

Belgium v Norway. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

Belgium have managed only three draws in their last three friendlies. These are not a good result for a team who’ve been tipped by many to do big things at the Euros and the pressure is mounting a little bit on Mark Wilmots, who tends to be more cautions in such circumstances, we’ve seen it before. Norway have called up a bunch of young players who did well when beating Iceland 3-2 in the week. Perhaps Norway are short on technical ability in comparison with this Belgium side but they will play her without pressure because they won’t be going…

Austria v Holland. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

This will be Austria’s last run through before the major tournament gets underway, while Holland will watch the euros on TV. Holland are just about the favourites for this ones and I think this has something to do with the fact that they are under no pressure, while Austria will be looking to avoid injuries. If Holland breach the defence early, things may open up quite quickly. Over 2.5 goals at 21/20 in this kind of feature is a good price.

United States v Colombia. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

The US have a home advantage and they are coming off four straight wins, while Colombia’s main man James Rodriguez is coming off the back of a very rough season. He joined up late from the Champions League final. This explains, why the prices are pretty tight here, I think. Otherwise, Columbia would be favourites. The USA and Klinsmann will want to be cautious in the opener and with Columbia still finding their feet somewhat, I think we could be in for a very tight, cautious opening to these championships and the play here is a scoreless first half, offered…

Germany v Slovakia. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

Germany will be without Tony Kroos who is playing in the Champions League final. Otherwise they could be at full strength and this is of course a possibility for other players to book their place in the final squad for the Euros. That suggests to me a far more attacking mindset. Remember, there are some places to grab, particularly up front. Equally Slovakia played on Friday against Georgia, so naturally, as this game is just 40 hours later we are likely to see them mix it up a bit. Slovakia are no pushovers, but they are at the disadvantage of having…

Spain v Bosnia. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

Spain are obviously not quite as strong as they could be because seven players from Vicente del Bosque squad are involved in the Champions League final. So they won’t play on Sunday. They are taking on a team who hasn’t qualified for the Euros, but I think that the bookmakers have made them a little too short. They still have a lot of quality in that Bosnian side, players such as Pjanic or Ibisevic really are high-quality individiuals. And this is a prestige friendly match for them, it’s a big deal. I like Bosnia win/draw double chance at 2.70 or…

Switzerland v Belgium. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

I know that some people think wrong about Switzerland, I think they have some real issues up front in terms of the strikers while their midfielders are obviously good. Belgium are my favourites for the Euros and I think they could be holding something back, but this is a very settled side. I don’t like taking the short prices but under 2.5 goals at 1.60 really seems right to me. I think both teams will be trying to exert themselves as little as possible in this one and right now try they’re just trying to find their shape. Single: Lost…

England v Australia. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

The bookies have gone way too short on England here. This is mainly because there’s always a lot of money around them, particularly in games that they are automatically expected to win. Also, this a very under-strength Australia team. It’s not an official FIFA date, so many Asia-based players are not in the team. Still, I can’t justify such a tiny price for England even against an experimental squad. Truth be told, Roy Hodgson will be doing some experimenting of his own. I like Australia +1 handicap at 3.75 with William Hill. Single: Lost England v Australia 27.05.2016 19:45 BST…

Real Madrid – Atletico Madrid. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

The prices for this game are pretty even, and It’s not hard to see why. Atletico beat Real Madrid at the Bernabeu the last time they faced each other. Atleti also have a tremendous record against Real Madrid in the last ten games, losing only once. And, of course, they put on a defensive masterclass to knock out both Barcelona and Bayern. Having said this, I still think Real Madrid are a bit underrated here. Since the aforementioned defeat to Atleti, they’ve played 17 games, won 15 of them, drew one and lost the other. Atletico managed to get an…

Barcelona v Sevilla. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

It’s the fourth time Barcelona and Sevilla play against each other this season. Barca have won two and Sevilla one. It’s usually tight, and each previous encounter between these two this season has been decided by a single goal, back to that crazy 5:4 in the European Supercup. The edge is still overwhelmingly with Barcelona. The midweek Europa League final took a lot out of Sevilla and of course Barca can win the double and that matters a lot to both Luis Enrique and the players. The bookmakers obviously see it that way too and the odds on Barca are…

LA Galaxy v San Jose Earthquakes. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

This is a derby and one of the few MLS derbies along with Portland v Vancouver and maybe one or two others that the people really care about. The Galaxy are heavy favourites here, they are one point clear at the top of the table. The Quakes have taken seven points from the last eight games, Galaxy – eight from the last four games. I appreciate that LA are very good at home, but I don’t know if they are as great as made out to be, and, although they should win this, I think we can expect a low-scoring…

AC Milan v Juventus. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

The narrative says that AC Milan’s season hinges on this, but their season, in fact, is already ruined. Winning here would of course be an achievement, but it wouldn’t do much to change the fact that they’ve been well below the expected standard this campaign. The pressure is really starting to mount on all of the players and on the owner Silvio Berlusconi as well. It’s a question of how well they can respond to this? Juve are the obvious favourites to win here and it looks highly likely that they will secure the double. Having said this, I think…
