June 26: France v Rep Ireland Betting Preview

June 26: France v Rep Ireland Betting Preview

FRANCE were my antepost tip to win the Euros but they’ve got a tough route to the Final. Spain, Germany, Italy and England have all landed in the same half so only one can make it to Paris on July 10. I’m still hoping it’s the French and they should end Republic of Ireland’s adventure tomorrow. France won their first […]

June 25: Wales v Nth Ireland Betting Preview

AT the start of Euro 2016 I said there would be a surprise semi-finalist … and that’s the way it’s panning out. Croatia were mentioned as a dark horse and look nailed on to make the last four after sinking Spain to top Group C. Holders Spain, hosts France, Germany and England are all in the same half of the […]

June 25: Croatia v Portugal Betting Preview

June 25: All Your Betting Challenges

THE last 16 of Euro 2016 starts on Saturday with three games and I’m having another go at a £20 to £250 challenge – and this will be my last attempt. Games today are Switzerland v Poland, Wales v Northern Ireland and Croatia v Portugal. I fancy the three favourites but I have a nagging doubt that at least one […]

June 25: Switzerland v Poland Betting Preview

June 25: Switzerland v Poland Betting Preview

FIRST of the last-16 ties at Euro 2016 is Switzerland v Poland and while neither side has been explosive you have to fancy the Poles. They haven’t conceded yet – including a 0-0 draw with Germany – and will be hoping Robert Lewandowski will find his shooting boots after drawing a blank in Group C. His strike pal Arkadiusk Milik […]

IT was a full house for Greg on Wednesday with his nap (Belgium) winning and three late goals in all of the games. He’s had a good look at the quarter-finals and like me he fancies Wales to beat Northern Ireland. Wales v Northern Ireland (5pm) This should be a cracker. There’s probably not a lot between the sides but […]

Portugal qualifying with three draws was unexpected and for me they were lucky they finished in the best four of the third-placed teams. “Croatia have also surprised me […]
