Czechia starts its Euro 2024 campaign with an uphill fight to win this match and make any real noise in the tournament as they square off with Group F-favorite Portugal on Tuesday, and we're offering our top Portugal vs. Czechia predictions based on the odds from our best soccer betting sites.

Portugal's Euros 2016 triumph may be a distant memory, but superstar Cristiano Ronaldo remains to remind the world that he still has plenty left in the tank despite now playing in the less-heralded Saudi League. He'll begin his quest to win the Golden Boot as one of the top contenders by the Euro 2024 top goal scorer odds.  

According to the Euro 2024 odds, Portugal is -250 favorites to win Group F, and they enter their first match of the tournament as -200 favorites to secure an early three points. Kick-off is set for 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Portugal vs. Czechia score prediction

Portugal 3 - Czechia 1

This should be a relative cakewalk for Portugal, who were among the biggest favorites to win their respective group before the tournament got underway. Meanwhile, Czechia are priced as the third favorites in Group F, and they are alongside the biggest Euro long-shots.

Portugal are full of talent going forward, with our best sports betting sites offering at least seven Portuguese players with the shortest anytime goal odds before listing a single Czechia player.

We'll back Czechia to score one of their own through sheer heart in what is a massive match for them, but it's also entirely likely Portugal hold the clean sheet.

Portugal vs. Czechia anytime goal scorer prediction

Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal

Were you expecting anyone else?

Sure, Ronaldo plays in the Saudi League now, but he still managed 30 league goals in 31 matches this past season, and if we're going to continue to credit Lionel Messi for his contributions in MLS, then we should do so for the man regularly mentioned in the same breath.

Ronaldo is priced as the favorite to score on Tuesday, but these are still relatively favorable odds. Some of our other best sports betting apps are as short as -135 for Ronaldo to score.

Best odds: -110 via FanDuel

Portugal vs. Czechia best bet

Cristiano Ronaldo to score + Portugal to win

OK, maybe this is low-hanging fruit, but why not look for easy wins at plus-money odds?

Portugal are significant -200 favorites to win this match, which gives them a 67% implied probability of grabbing the three points according to our best sportsbooks. So, that part of the bet is relatively straightforward.

Meanwhile, we already outlined the rationale behind backing Ronaldo to score. Being able to parlay the two bets together to get +130 odds is a gift, really. If Ronaldo shows out in Portugal's first match, he'll likely be trading closer to -150 to score in their second game.

Best odds: +130 via bet365
