Euro 2020 betting: Picks for Monday's knockout round games

·1 min read

The Round of 16 will be halfway through before Monday's games. Below are our picks for Monday's two games in the first knockout round. All odds are via BetMGM.

Croatia vs. Spain

Noon ET, ESPN

Croatia (+550)

Spain (-175)

Regulation Tie (+280)

Over/under: 2.5 goals

Both of these teams saved their best group stage performances for the final game. Spain cruised past Slovakia in a 5-0 scoreline that was indicative of the gulf between the teams. Croatia took control in the second half against Scotland to win and move into the knockout rounds. Spain should have the advantage here as Croatia doesn’t have the same level of top-end talent or depth. But a performance like Spain had against Sweden or Poland will open the door for Croatia to get the win.

Official picks

Spain (-175)

Under 2.5 goals (-140)

Bold bet

Alvaro Morata to score first (+350)

France vs. Switzerland

3 p.m. ET, ESPN

France (-165)

Switzerland (+550)

Regulation Tie (+275)

Over/under: 2.5 goals

This appears to be one of the biggest mismatches of the Round of 16. The defending World Cup champions didn’t really need to find a top gear in the group stage after beating Germany 1-0. Draws in the next two games were enough to win the group. Switzerland tied with Wales and beat Turkey while losing to Italy in the group stage. This could be a game that France controls but only wins 1-0 or so.

Official picks

France (-165)

Under 2.5 goals (-155)

Bold bet

France wins 2-0 (+625)
