Germany are heavy favorites to defeat Hungary in their Group F match later today but can Neil Monnery find some prop bets to make this game better from a betting value standpoint...?
Location: Munich, Germany
Date: Wednesday, June 23
Kick Off Time: 3PM ET
Hungary leave the cozy confines of their home country and travel to Germany looking to shock the footballing world and progress out of the Group of Death. They need to win, a tie will not be enough so they face an uphill task.
If you’d asked me a week ago then I would have given them a bit more of a chance. A fine tie with France showed me that they are no pushovers but seeing the way Germany dismantled a pretty darn good Portugal side gave me belief that they could be real contenders. Not many teams play with wing backs but they played it with aplomb.
Robin Gosens and Joshua Kimmich will look to once again provide the pace and width from those two flanks. Gosens in particular was incredible on Saturday and the way both players added bodies to the attacking areas was a joy to behold.
The fact that both Portugal and Hungary both play with a low block and set up in an extremely similar fashion makes me pretty confident that Germany win the game. I wouldn’t below making that an official pick as at -560 it doesn’t exactly represent value. So this preview is all about finding a couple of prop bets to make the game interesting.
I don’t expect Hungary to score but Germany to win to nil is not odds against with any of the Sportsbooks so I’m taking a wide berth. The best price available for that market is -110 with PointsBet.
Value wise I don’t mind the Draw/Germany outcome in the HT/FT market at +350 with Unibet and SugarHouse. A sluggish start from the home side or a really strong defensive display from Hungary would really add to the chances of this bet coming in.
My second play will be on the corners handicap market. Germany-4 is at +105 with bet365. Germany should be on the front foot in this game therefore should dominate the corners count.
Picks: Draw/Germany in the HT/FT market at +350 and Germany-4 in the Corners Handicap market at -105.
