Most recently the Belgians took down the Italians in an International Friendly resulting a 3-1 victory for FIFA’s second-ranked team in all the world. From the get-go, we have showcased our fondness of Belgium as a contender to win the EURO and given their price at the offset. As we have championed vehemently, the Belgians are extraordinarily undervalued in this tournament to an absurd measure. This market likely reflects that trend. Conversely, we have also leveraged our reluctance to touch anything that has to do with Italy, citing their name alone as the driving force behind the price one must incur to back them. Italy as we have highlighted as well, has not been relevant on a world stage since their championship World Cup run in 2006. Nevertheless, Italy is a household name and with that comes a premium. Belgium has the talent to win this tournament outright. We have sung the praises of Lukaku and Hazard up-top for the Belgian attack but nevertheless we squirm at opting in on them in this opening fixture. The book has assessed Italy as having the same chance of winning as they do drawing, both these outcomes are just a touch more profitable to bank on than taking Belgium outright. In essence, this market suggests that this game is a virtual toss-up and while we have all the more reason to believe this is Belgium’s match to lose, there is too much ambiguity in the numbers to make a play. Auspiciously we can almost confirm if Belgium’s opening match was against Ireland or Sweden, they would be heavily favored. A draw would likely render the group market and Game Two markets changeless. However, if Belgium pulls a win as that is certainly a likelihood, they may be a heavy favorite to lay against Ireland in match two and we like that situation. As for Italy, a draw followed up by a likely win will once again foster value for Ireland takers. Ireland as we have highlighted is a team that can contend for this group as a dark horse, so we will simply stay off this contest and see where the chips fall as a reactionary play is likely our best option. The most value that we can fathom would come as a result of Italy stealing an unlikely win against Belgium, this allows us to get a high-quality side for a very good price. Furthering this narrative this will almost guarantee a public overreaction that we can target on multiple levels. Italy does not have the firepower to go the distance, Belgium does even if they were to falter in this fixture. So once again, we will call for the no play and see how this contest shapes up. Our best opportunities will likely come from the impact of the final result as opposed to jumping in early in to a very nebulous scenario.
