Top Soccer Betting Picks for the Week – October 6th Edition
Friday, Oct. 11th
Czech Republic vs England
- UEFA Euro 2020 Odds: Czech Republic +553 / England -238
The Czech Republic has played well when winning 3-of-4. Let’s be honest, though. They don’t stand much of a shot versus the English. England has gone 3-0 in their last 3 matches. The English are a World Cup contender in 2022. They should easily handle the Czech Republic.
Soccer Betting Pick: England -1 -140
Iceland vs France
- UEFA Euro 2020 Odds: Iceland +609 / France -256
The defending World Cup Champions might take Iceland lightly on Friday. Iceland has shown up at the UEFA Euro Championships before. They must play well to qualify. Although France should win, it might be a good idea to go for a draw in this match.
Soccer Betting Pick: Draw +319
Saturday, Oct. 12th
Denmark vs Switzerland
- UEFA Euro 2020 Odds: Denmark +121 / Switzerland +208
These two are incredibly even in terms of both talent as well as recent form. Denmark has 2 two wins and 3 draws in their last 5. Switzerland has a win, 2 draws, a loss, and a loss on penalty kicks in their last 5. Switzerland gets the nod because they’ve played the much tougher competition.
Soccer Betting Pick: Switzerland +208
Norway vs Spain
- UEFA Euro 2020 Odds: Norway +498 / Spain -217
Norway doesn’t have much of a shot. So, the real question is whether to back Spain on the handicap or to go with the draw. Spain rides a 5 match winning streak into this. They beat Norway 2-1 back in March. The Spanish could suffer a slight let down. That could lead to a draw.
Soccer Betting Pick: Draw +305
Sunday, Oct. 13th
Wales vs Croatia
- UEFA Euro 2020 Odds: Wales +198 / Croatia +134
Wales versus Croatia might be the top overall soccer matchup this week. Wales beat Belarus 1-0 in an International Friendly back on Sep. 9. Before that, they beat Azerbaijan 2-1 on Sep. 6. During a European Qualifying match on June 8, Wales couldn’t get much going in a 1-2 loss.
Croatia might be set for a slight upset loss on Sunday, though. The Croatians dominated the Slovakians 4-0 on Sep. 6. However, they drew with Azerbaijan in a match after that and lost 1-2 to Tunisia in a match before the Slovakian domination. Wales can get it done at decent odds.
