Euro 2012 Italy vs Ireland Match Betting Tips/Odds


Oh this game isn’t going to be pretty.

Ireland are already eliminated, and Italy know that they have to win…and win big. A draw between Spain and Croatia, depending on goal difference, could see Italy out even if they win this match against Ireland.

Shay Given is in for a long night.

Let’s look at the Italy vs Ireland Live Betting Odds:

Italy: 2/7
Draw: 9/2
Ireland: 10/1

Yeah, those odds pretty much sum the match up.

For me, the best value in Italy/Ireland is half-time/full-time. You can bet Italy at 4/5 odds which is very good. Draw-Italy is 5/2 which is just too low. If you bet Italy-Italy then you’re getting 4/5 oddswhich is a great price. Italy HAVE to come into this game and attack and win and score goals, and they need to do that right from the very beginning of the match.

The handicap result is another good Italy vs Ireland betting tip. Italy -2 is 21/10 which is solid betting odds – that’s a nice price considering Italy really need to wrack up the goals. Italy have top strikers who can do the business. They may not have did it in the previous two games but they have had the chances, despite playing rather conservative.

The goalscorer markets for Italy vs Ireland are also surprisingly attractive. What until the teams are announced obviously – but I’m seeing 9/2 and 11/2 on the likes of Di Natale and Balotelli for first scorer which is great.

There’s absolutely no reason Italy don’t destroy Ireland here. Ignore the “passion of the Irish” or anything else that has you hesitant and bet on Italy hammering the Republic of Ireland.

As a Glasgow Rangers fan, I will be!
