Russia vs. Denmark Predictions: Prop Bets to Play
Denmark can still quality for the knockout stages from Group B and Neil Monnery likes them to do so. He has a couple of prop bets to play as well...
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark.
Date: Monday, June 21.
Kick Off Time: 3PM ET
It has been quite the roller-coaster of a European Championships for Denmark and their fans so far. An opening game like no other as their captain battled for his life on the pitch. Being forced to restart that game a couple of hours later and unsurprisingly losing.
Next up came top-ranked Belgium and the Danes scored early and played them off the park for the first 45 minutes. Then the visitors looked at their substitutes bench, brought on Kevin De Bruyne and that as they say was that. The superstar Belgian midfielder created one and scored the other to send the Danes to their second straight defeat. Despite all that though, they go into today’s match with a realistic chance of qualification.
They would need some help in the form of Belgium beating Finland (which they are heavily favored to do) but if that happens, a win in front of their home fans would secure progress to the round of 16 as group B runners-up.
Russia however will have other ideas. A draw will be enough (should Finland not shock everybody by beating Belgium) to finish second in the group themselves. They beat Finland last time out in a game that lacked real quality. 25 shots in total sounds good but when only four of them were on target, you get the idea of what type of game it was.
This game is going to be close and it is going to be tetchy. Russia will want to nullify the Danes whilst you sense that the home team - backed by a ferocious and raucous home support will thrive.
I do think Denmark win and qualify for the next round but I’m avoiding the Moneyline and going with two Prop Bets for this one.
Picks: Denmark-2 on the handicap to get the most corners in this game is at +125 with bet365. I think the home side will push forward and create far more thus taking out this bet.
I also like a bit of +160 for over 4.5 cards with Unibet and SugarHouse. I think this game could get a bit feisty and the referee has a bit of a history of being card happy.
