The UEFA European Championship 2020 Round of 16 rolls on, to be played from Saturday, June 26 to Tuesday, June 29. These clashes pit 16 soccer teams with very different histories against each other. In one of them, Belgium will come against Portugal at the Estadio de La Cartuja in Seville, Spain, while in another one, Germany travel to London to face England at the Wembley Stadium.
The Belgian side have a perfect record of three successive wins in the Group stage, coming out on top of Group B. Portugal, meanwhile, ended the Group of Death, Group F in third but they have the best score between all third-placed teams. On the other hand, there is England who topped Group D, meeting with Group F second-placed side Germany after Die Mannschaft had escaped a narrow elimination scare twice.
This matchday provides an opportunity for the bettor to play around with parlays, picks in the over/under, or goalscorers. Here are some betting predictions to consider when placing a bet on these Euro 2020 Round of 16 fixtures.
Belgium vs Portugal betting picks (Sunday, June 27)
Portugal enter this game with confidence after salvaging a tough 2-2 draw against France in Matchday 3 in Group F. They are not afraid to face Belgium, since they are the slight favorites in head-to-head games, triumphing on six occasions so far. Belgium have claimed a win five times, and the remaining seven matches have ended in a draw. However, this will be the real test for the Selecao, as the Red Devils are yet to suffer a defeat or draw a game in Euro 2020.
Fernando Santos's side are +200 underdogs, while Belgium are at +145 to win this Sunday, and a tie grants a +210 payout. A tough battle is expected, but having everything in mind, betting that the matchup ends in a 2-2 draw, for example, is paying out +1300. If you want to bet on the clash, as it might be much more interesting than an outright bet. At $100, the bettor could earn $1,300. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Romelu Lukaku or Cristiano Ronaldo, as the Belgian star is at +370 to be the first one to score, while the odds of CR7 opening the score of the game are set at +440.
England vs Germany betting picks (Tuesday, June 29)
This will be a "do or die" matchup for England, who in spite of coming out as the best side from Group D, have so far failed to impress with their playing style and skills. The Three Lions have netted only two goals so far, which is the lowest between the last 16 teams in the competition. This will be the perfect chance for Gareth Southgate, who has been criticized lately, to prove the doubters wrong. They host the wounded Germany, who have been through heartbreak and back several times against Hungary.
Interestingly, the Nationalelf are +185 underdogs, while the Three Lions are at +155 to win in their 33rd overall meeting in history. No surprises here as Germany are the slight favorites in head-to-head clashes, having celebrated a victory on 15 occasions so far; England have grabbed a triumph 13 times, and only four matches have ended in a draw. Considering the fact that England are yet to leave everyone in awe with their performances, betting that the game ends in a 2-1 victory for Germany could be a sure bet, at +1000. At $100, the bettor could earn $1,000. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Harry Kane or Kai Havertz. Kane is at +410 to be the first one to score, while the odds of the Chelsea star opening the score of the game are set at +700.
Parlays for these two Euro 2020 Round of 16 matchups
