Euro 2016 Final Betting Tips PT 2

There is a lot to like about this match-up and the bookmakers seem to be giving the edge to the French side by a decent margin with a number of bookmakers floating them at around 21/20 with several actually listing an even money price tag on the French. Considering the fact that hey are going to be playing a home game here, that is pretty significant.


Portugal come into the match0up with a price as high as 18/5 with a number of top European-based bookmakers. The others tend to list them around a 7/2 or even 10/3 price at the moment. The Portuguese are going to be much more difficult to defend against than some of the other teams that France have faced of against and when they break with pace, they can be very difficult to stop.

The draw is siting at an 11/5 price and that's not a bad bet when you think about it since there is a lot of opportunity for this one to go to extra time or even penalties.

A big portion of the Portuguese strategy is going to be based around set pieces for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and it's worth a bash backing him to score directly from a free kick. The French keeper Hugo Lloris has been impressive lately and made some excellent last-ditch saves against the German side in the semi-finals.

For those who do think that the match-up is likely to not get settled within the 90 minute timeframe, it's worth checking out the odds To Lift The Trophy, which is a victory by any possible method. France get a very short price here from most major bookmakers trading them at a 4/9 listing at the time of this writing. Backing Portugal pays out at a much better price and there will be many who think that the 15/8 listing on them is going to be pretty rewarding – particularly if we can get through the 90 minutes and into penalties or even just extra-time.

The Portuguese side have flourished in extra-time throughout this tournament and you can bank on them to hold their nerve should this one actually wind up going past the 90 minute mark and heading into penalty kicks.
