We’re one third into the Euro 2020 with the second round of group matches having kicked off today. You can of course find the best odds along with our betting predictions for the evening matches, right here on BetFootball.
Italy winning their first match combined the tie result between Wales and Switzerland, has made the second round a pivotal one with all teams still in competition and badly needing points, so it should be an exciting night of football.
Euro 2020 Golden Boot Update
Many of our featured Golden Boot picks have turned in good performances in the first round of matches, let’s have a look at the updated odds as we head into the second week of the Euros.
Started great banging off two goals against a Russian side which had no answer for his skill and physique. He gave a shout out to Inter teammate Christian Eriksen upon his first goal, kudos for that.
His next two matches are against Denmark and Finland. Belgium performed well vs Denmark in the qualifiers and Finland allowed 22 shots on goal in their first match vs the shocked Danish side, a similar performance could turn out a disaster when facing a player like Lukaku.
Dumped in a penalty kick and a very nice goal to seal the match at 3-0 for Portugal at the very end, and boy did Cristiano look fired up.
His two goals made him the all-time best goal scorer at the European Championships and his appearance the first player ever to feature at five different finals rounds of the Euros.
His next two matches vs Germany and France are much tougher than what Lukaku will be facing, this is also reflected in the current odds.
Put in a single goal in the opening match vs Turkey and his odds have dropped from 30/1 to 20/1, now sitting just above Kylian Mbappé who’s at around 17/1.
We still consider him a decent outsider pick, still depending on Italy going the distance.
Unfortunately, neither of these two stars managed to score in the first round, so they’ll need good performances vs in the next matches vs Scotland and Hungary this week.

Football Betting FAQ
Can I bet on the result of a match, even when the match has already begun?Yes, you can. The difference here is that you are live betting once betting on a match that has already started. Live betting is another form of betting, with odds changing as the match takes place.
I see a favorite in a match has higher odds thanks to a handicap -1. What does handicap mean?Betting on a team with a handicap makes up for more favorable odds. Handicap -1 means that the team you bet on starts the game with a goal behind, meaning they need to win the match with two goals difference.
I want to put my money on a team with really high odds. Is this a good idea?We are not here to advise you. But there is a reason the odds are high: because chances are small that that team will win the match. So, you might win more, but the chances of winning are smaller.
I want to combine the outcome with the exact score, is this possible?You can combine such bets at most bookies, sometimes even in a single bet.
Where can I see the best odds for the bet I want to place?On BetFootball, we analyze the odds of the most trusted and competitive sportsbooks in Europe and offer you an overview of those odds per bet. You choose!
