We are playing this one from value alone, as an Albanian victory can likely secure a profitable EURO betting campaign for any punter at the odds offered here. For France takers, let us remind them that were simply one minute away from potentially tanking their bankroll in their opening game against Romania at odds of 1/3. Had it not been for Dimitri Payet’s miraculous intervention in the 89th minute, those that spent $300 on France to win $100 in what was construed as a sure win may have lost most of their shirt in the opening match of the EURO. This is why we continue to champion staying clear of heavy favorites and taking back juice, one wrong turn can result in disastrous consequences. After France’s slithering victory against Romania, the markets are now asking takers to pay 50% more to back France against Albania. This means that you have to throw down $450 to make $100 on France in a win. We will have no part of that scenario considering France had jumped on to a 1-0 lead midway through the second half and they followed up this up with allowing a Romanian equalizer just minutes later. For those that enjoy cardiac complications, we suggest continuing to back France in these “can’t lose” scenarios and relying on Saint Payet to save those that may have to sweat it out again. Albania has proven that they are a very good football team undeserving of a 20/1 price after their loss against Switzerland. Albania went behind 1-0 against Switzerland in the first five minutes of their match and Switzerland could not mark again after that point. For a squad like Albania offered as a heavy pooch from the get-go, many would have imagined that a score acquired in such a brief period of time would imply the Swiss were on their way to routing the Albanians outright. No such event occurred, even when an Albanian player was sent off with a red card just before half time. The final score remained 1-0 in favor of the Swiss, a team that once boasted top-ten rankings in the FIFA World Rankings and secured qualification to the knockout stage of the 2014 World Cup. Albania outside of the first five minutes kept this contest a stalemate and for a half of play they did so, a man down. In spite of Albania being one man down, Switzerland only retained possession by a margin of 55% to 45% in their favor, suggesting Albania played a tremendous game defensively against this Swiss bunch. While Albania may have lost this battle, they know they can play in a war and given the fact so many are sleeping on them in this distinct fixture, we see this as an opportunity. We would never tell anyone to stay off a 20/1 bet if its chance of winning is greater than 5%. In this situation, Albania has the full capability to scare France and perhaps even beat them. We would rather throw down $100 to make $2,000 as opposed to smacking down $450 to make $100 every time. Limited risk coupled with substantial upside is what we have in this situation and thus we will bypass the draw and take a chance at increasing our ROI 500% more by taking the Albanians outright in what would certainly be an upset but not of monumental proportion by any means. This is a strict value play. For latest odds you can check a few recommended sportsbooks and betting exchanges
