Meanwhile, Ireland need a convincing performance against Georgia while Switzerland host Denmark
This phase of Euro 2020 qualifying comes to an end this coming Tuesday (26 March) and there are plenty more intriguing storylines to follow in the second round of the group stage. Sweden will be looking to continue their winning start to the process when they travel to Norway, while Ireland must put in a strong display on home soil against Georgia. And in what could well be the tie of the day, Switzerland host Denmark.
First things first
Before you go any further, head on over to the Oddsshark website, find your favourite betting site and get your own account up and running using your credit card. As a new customer and with the Euro 2020 qualifiers set to get underway later this week, there should be a wide range of promotions and special offers available to you.
Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Norway and Spain. Norway lost to Euro 2012 winners Spain last time out on the road, but in front of their own fans will surely be more confident of picking up three vital points.
Sweden, in stark contrast, have won their last three games in a row, including a 2-1 win over Romania in their opening qualifier. Sweden are priced at 6.50 to finish top of Group F and will need another victory here if they are to have any hope of matching giants Spain.
And while the betting is tight, it is Norway who come in as the slight favourites to win this one. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to take all three points at 2.60, while Sweden are out at 3.00 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.25, according to Oddsshark.
And we are expecting Sweden to continue their recent winning streak. A narrow, 2-1 win for the visitors is priced competitively at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.35.
Ireland need strong performance against Georgia
And with new boss Mick McCarthy looking to make his mark on the team, Ireland host Georgia looking for a dominant showing as well as a victory. The Irish are unbeaten in their last three matches, although they have won just one of those, keeping three clean sheets in the process.
Georgia meanwhile lost their Euro 2020 qualifying opener 2-0 to Switzerland. They will have their work cut out on the road here and may well look to sit back and play for a draw.
And it is indeed Ireland who come into this match as the clear favourites to pick up the win. You can back the home side to take all three points at just 1.60, while Georgia are out at 7.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.90.
And we are expecting home advantage to be a decisive factor in this contest. A narrow, 1-0 win for Ireland is priced at 5.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$25 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of an Ireland win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, at 2.25.
Switzerland host Denmark in tie of the day
And finally, Switzerland host Denmark in the best looking match of the day. Switzerland have won their last two matches, including a hugely impressive 5-2 thrashing of Belgium in the UEFA Nations League.
Denmark, on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last 18 matches across 90 minutes – their only defeat in that time came via a penalty shoot-out at the World Cup in the round of 16 against eventual runners-up Croatia. They can come into this match brimming with confidence.
Again, the betting is close but it is Switzerland who come in as the favourites to pick up the win. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to take the points at 2.20, while Denmark are out at 3.75 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.30.
And this one may well end up honours even. A 1-1 draw is priced at 6.00, while you can more than double your money by backing both teams to score at 2.10.
