This contest is a match-up of two chalk teams that enter on a disappointing notes in their Group F campaigns. For Portugal, they found themselves upended by resurgent Iceland who managed to force a draw in their opening fixture, giving one point each to the opposing sides. Iceland entered the contest as a heavy pooch and yet they managed to stymie Portugal and hold them to one goal while scoring one of their own in the process. For Iceland, this result has to spark some further momentum. For Portugal, expectations combined with the notion they trail the group leaders Hungary who were offered as the lowest chance to win any group in the tournament, may have fostered a sense of urgency for Ronaldo and company. For Austria, they fell victim to what many other heavy favorites fall prey to in virtually any sport: the rivalry game. Austria entered their opening fixture forecasted as a strong favorite to squash their border foes, instead the Austrians fell by a score of 2-0. For Hungary, winning Group F may seem like their high water mark in this tournament. If the Hungarians can defeat Austria who came in with all the statistics that caused revelry from fans, analysts and bookies alike, they can certainly steal another three against Iceland and cement their qualification to the next round. If Hungary were to win against Iceland, they would own six points and if Portugal were to not win this game, the Hungarians would clinch Group F as the winner. Reading this text may seem like a shocking revelation for a team that was given miniscule odds to win the group, let alone survive it. Austria now sits at the bottom of the table in Group F. Nevertheless, many would never imagine this outfit as being a bottom feeder and this is the perfect venue for Austria to prove that. We cited Austria’s resounding goal differential in our preliminary analyses of Group F. The Austrians also dominated their qualification to the EURO and as a result this team was likely to be overvalued out of the gate in this contest. Hungary quantified this hypothesis. Nevertheless, Portugal has also fostered diminished returns this far and now we get an opportunity to take this outfit back at a very friendly price. While we will never play chalk, we will always dive in on an opportunity to take back a team of exceptional quality and an affable wage. Austria is a step up in competition for Portugal and we won’t let one loss to Hungary change our perspective on that. With that being said, we will stay off the juice with Portugal and call for the upset by Austria out of desperation and a sense of urgency. The Austrians will likely fire off shots with reckless abandon and try the resolve of the Portuguese in this contest, with inflated odds we will opt in.
