France has probably the hardest road to get to the finals while many would argue Portugal had the easiest road. Without a doubt, France are the favourite to win this tournament and to win this game. Portugal could in theory steal a game but simply put, Portugal have not played great most of the tournament. Sure they have their goals and Ronaldo can score at times but they haven't faced a team that resembles anything as close to France. France had to get past Germany to get to this stage and had a tough set of group games to deal with. 

Griezmann vs Ronaldo

Ronaldo needs 4 goals to be the tournament goal scorer and this is just not going to happen. Greizmann has been absolutely clinical and he's got the best supporting cast to score goals with Olivier Giroud playing exceptionally well and Paul Pogba causing all sorts of problems for the opposition defense.  

France just have too much of everything to be denied and at 1/1 odds, this is actually a good bet to take. Portugal's odds of 7/2 look tempting but France are just good at scoring and it's not going to be easy for Portugal to break through their defense and it's going to be difficult stopping the French attack.

The France team seem like a team and have not looked this good since 2006 when they went to the World Cup final and lost to Italy. 

Betting props and betting on the games

  • Correct Score 2-0 France 9/1 odds
  • Both teams to score 11/8 odds
  • Over 1.5 goals at 61/100 odds

Picking the correct score is fun but usually not a profitable thing to do unless you are getting a bonus on top of your play. Both teams to score is a risky prop bet as we think Portugal could struggle to score against France. Over 2 goals is likely, both teams are great at defense but goals should happen and 1 goal should lead to 2 whether it is an equilizer or 2-0 caused from a counter strike as one team presses.
