The group stage of the EURO 2024 Championship is coming to a close. Just one more day of group stage games stand between groups E & F and a spot in the Round of 16. With every single team in Group E having a chance of winning the group, Wednesday’s viewing promises to be nothing short of cinematic.

Here’s everything you need to know about the games from a betting perspective.

Belgium are still the heavy favorites to win this group, but an unexpected loss against Slovakia in the opening game has only complicated teams for one of the most star-studded teams in the competition.

They’ll face an Ukraine side that mounted a 2-goal second half comeback against Slovakia to keep their EURO dreams alive and should be high on confidence as a result. With that said, they’ll have to find another level against a Red Devils side featuring the likes of Kevin DeBruyne and Leandro Trossard.

Ukraine has conceded more goals than anyone else in their group and facing a side as stout as Belgium is going to be problematic. I can see the underdogs really trying to force the draw, knowing 4 points might be enough to see them through. That is only going to open doors up for Belgium, who should be able to battle their way to a narrow victory in a tense affair.

As far as prop bets go, I do like Romelu Lukaku to score anytime at -115. He’s yet to score in this competition but should have plenty of looks at goal against Ukraine.

Romania vs Slovakia

EURO 2024: Romania vs Slovakia Betting info

Moneyline: Romania +300 | Draw +110 | Slovakia +215

This might be the most exciting game of all 4 being played on Wednesday. Somehow, someway, Romania find themselves sat atop the group with their lone remaining fixture coming against a Slovakia side who should provide the easiest contest on paper.

With that said, Slovakia mounted 10 shots against Belgium and 14 against Ukraine. They aren’t just content to sit behind the ball and wait, but both of these teams know a draw might well be enough to see them into the next round.

I think Slovakia will be the more attacking of the two sides, but betting under 2.5 goals at +105 feels like a good bet. The tensions will be high and with the stakes being even higher, there’s no need for either team to go on an all-out assault knowing that a point is all they need. A 1-1 draw feels likely, but I could also see Slovakia trying to garner momentum. If there is going to be a winner, Slovakia feels like the most plausible candidate.

Georgia vs Portugal

Portugal have already cemented their spot in the Round of 16 and face a Georgian outfit who sit bottom of the group and have an outside look into a spot in the knockouts, but it would require either a draw or a shocking upset. We can expect Portugal to rest a few players as a result, while Georgia will likely throw all they have to try and bully their way into a remarkable spot in the next round.

Georgia have drawn plenty of praise for their efforts in the EURO’s. The debuting team have carried themselves well and were unlucky not to come away with 3 points in their opening game. They’ll need to be at their best against Portgual, even if they do rest players.

If you want to get funky, betting on a Georgia win has some really spicy odds, but I like Georgia +1.5 at -155. They have a chance to shock the world and Portugal don’t need to risk their star players ahead of the knockout stage. Let the chaos begin!

Czechia vs Turkey

EURO 2024: Czechia vs Turkey Game info

Date: Wednesday June 26th
Time: 3PM ET, 8:00PM BST
Location: Volksparkstadion
TV channel: FOX Sports

EURO 2024: Czechia vs Turkey Betting info

Moneyline: Czechia +165 | Draw +225 | Turkey +175

The final game sees a total coin-flip affair between Czechia and Turkey take place. There is a spot in the final 16up for grabs for both of these teams, making it that much more enticing as a neutral fan.

The wildcard to note here is that talisman forward, Patrik Schick may well be sidelined after picking up an injury last time out. He helped push the Czech Republic to the quarter finals last time out, blasting in goals for fun. Although he’s been quieter this time around, his absence is a big one.

For Turkey, fans will be keen to see if Arda Guler gets a spot in the starting XI after surprisingly sitting on the bench last time out. It could well have been a tactical decision to keep him fresh and if that’s the case, he could be a real difference-maker on Wednesday.

I think the safest bet in a game like this is Both teams to score at -150. The teams have combined for 5 goals across 2 games so far, conceding 7 between them. With the stakes being so high, we could easily see 3+ in this matchup.
