Euro 2016: Best Bets For This Sunday Features Germany vs Ukraine

Saturday, June 11, 2016 6:00 PM GMT

Turkey v Croatia is the first game on the Sunday Soccer Odds Board and with second spot in Group D there to be won (I think Spain can wrap up top spot) this is an important fixture.

 

I think Croatia has the better squad with Modric and Rakitic in midfield, not to mention Mandzukic, Kovacic and Srna in the side (along with Corluka, a personal favourite). Turkey may not have those players but they do have an abundance of experience as head coach. Fatih Terim has been here before, this is his third spell in charge of Italy, and his tactical nous will be very important. He’s lucky that he has players like Turan and Calhanoglou to call on as both are classy players and could make a difference in a tight game.

A number of bookies are offering +120 for a Croatia win and I’m going with BetVictor as it goves me another crack at their one million pound giveaway.

In what I’m anticipating will be quite an open game I’m also placing a small bet on Both Teams To Score. Again BetVictor get the nod here at +104 but there are a fair few books offering those odds.

In my one “flyer” of the day I’m backing Northern Ireland to get a shock win against Poland. That’s not an easy call as Poland have some fantastic players but these early games can produce the occasional shock and for me, this could be it. I’m not going to say the +500 on offer from bet365 will come in handy if Northern Ireland do win but I’d be lying if I said anything else!

Milik and Lewandowski are of course going to be a threat but Northern Ireland know how to battle. If this game was being played at almost any other time, I wouldn’t be backing it. That first round of games factor is big.

The game of the day is surely Germany v Ukraine. Ignoring the fact that these two sides don’t like each other, Germany are my tip to be tournament winners and I’ll be looking for them to show me just why I’ve invested my money in them.

There are some “new” faces in the Germany side that will be making their tournament debut but overall this is a very good squad with very few weaknesses. I’m not sure if the same can be said for too many other sides in this competition.

The soccer odds on offer for a simple Germany win aren’t of any interest to me but I do like the look of Germany to win the second half as my soccer pick. -105 with BetVictor.

Sundays can often be quiet in France, this one will be anything but.
