Based on their first outings in the EURO, some pundits and analysts perceive Russia’s draw against England as a moral victory and imposing outcome, whilst others view Slovakia’s defeat against Wales an indicator that the Slovaks were not as good as they were chalked up to be. We will entertain neither perspective. We had our rationale for laying England as a Group B favorite and contender to win the EURO. England has a predisposition for crafting heartbreaking let-downs like we saw against Russia. Russia’s defense as we have highlighted previously is very susceptible to attacks and England should have taken advantage to a point where a late equalizer was not even conceivable. As mentioned previously, the Russians remain winless in their last six fixtures and they have scored five goals while conceding ten. These numbers suggest that Russia is by no means a safe play but were instead the benefactors of England’s misfortunes and marginal efforts. For England, underachievement has been the norm for them in many major tournaments as of late, so we constitute Russia’s success as a testament to England’s continued attrition. For Slovakia, they simply had a bad game against Wales, not to admonish the efforts of the Welsh. For what it is worth, the Slovaks fired off thirteen shots and only two went on net. One of those two shots on net, made it behind the goalkeeper. Needless to say, if the analytics had shaped up a tad different we may have seen an entirely different result and even with Slovakia picking up a loss they lost 2-1 even with Wales’ proficiencies. Wales fired off 11 shots and 8 were on goal. Let us also mention that Slovakia held possession just 44% of the time and they were still very much in the game until Wales squeaked ahead in the final stages. With this being said, we don’t want any part of this match-up because we are getting a squad with a traditionally poor defense against a team with poor marksmanship and shooting. With consideration to these variables a multitude of circumstances can materialize. Russia can easily lose this game and lose it in hideous fashion as their goal differential remains -5 in their previous six fixtures. As for Slovakia, this team was on a tear after facing Germany and they simply had a bad outing against an undervalued Wales. Slovakia can easily respond to this result or they may continue to slide as a result of their shooting woes, which plays right in to Russia’s toolbox. As these considerations are weighed, many may feel the secure and safe bet is a draw. Once again, we will have to lay that perspective as the unpredictability of both teams can certainly make that prognostication cloudier as well. After this contest, Russia will face Wales and Slovakia will face England and if a result is cultivated by either side, there may be immense value in taking the loser against a likely heavier favorite in each club’s third match-up. A no play is what we are calling for in this Group B fixture. For latest odds you can check a few recommended sportsbooks and betting exchanges
