Portugal vs Czech Republic Betting Tips

Posted: June 20, 2012

Czech Republic were the surprising Group A Winners, with a rather rare feat of winning the group while having a negative goal difference. Luck was generally on the side of the Czech Republic, however you have to give them credit for a hard-earned victory over Poland at least.

Portugal on the other hand made it through with some solid performances. A feisty victory against Denmark, then a quality win over Holland where it should have been 4-1 or 5-1.

It’s going to be similar against Czech Republic. The bookies agree. Before I start with the Portugal vs Czech Republic Betting Tips let’s look at the Portugal vs Czech Republic Betting Odds:

Czech Republic: 9/2
Draw: 5/2
Portugal: 8/11

As you can see, the bookies are quite confident that after 90 minutes, Portugal will be the ones with the victory. And I have to agree.

Some people seem to think that after the group stages, every game becomes a tight affair. That isn’t the case in this generation of football. You’re usually going to see 2 goals on average in the quarter finals.

The 8/11 odds however are a bit tricky. I like them, but I think we have to go with Portugal-Portugal half-time/full-time. You can get 8/5 on those odds

Portugal are a team just BURSTING with morale. They played great against The Netherlands, and managed to squeeze through from a very tight and tough group. On top of that, they have one of the best players in the world in Ronaldo, who is on-form and upbeat. He was having a field day against Holland, and when it comes to Portugal vs Czech Republic Betting Tips, I just can’t see by Portugal-Portugal.

With Ronaldo on form, I think you have to look to him for goals. Unfortunately, the odds on Ronaldo at 7/2 for the first goalscorer are a bit slim. The scorecast odds aren’t good either, with Portugal conceding in every game they have played, and Czech Republic scoring in every game they’ve played.

Therefore my second main Portugal vs Czech Republic betting tipwho are offering 6/5 on over 2.5 goals. This is a great betting pick, because with both teams history in the tournament already, we shouldn’t be betting anywhere near that much value.

So when it comes to Portugal and Czech Republic Betting Picks, without a doubt take Portugal-Portugal and the Over 2.5 with the latter being probably my main recommended betting tip.
