Now that we’ve seen every team in action at least once, it’s a good time to try to throw a few parlay bets on the table. We’ve got three matches on the table on June 17, and we’ve put together a conservative parlay and an aggressive parlay for Ukraine-North Macedonia, Belgium-Denmark and Netherlands-Austria. Either of these would provide a solid return if it hits, so if you’d like to go for a big win, these are the plays for you.
CONSERVATIVE PARLAY: +400
UKRAINE ML, BELGIUM ML, NETHERLANDS ML
Reason: A parlay doesn’t have to be complicated in order to be successful. These three matches seem pretty straightforward, especially with Belgium getting to face Denmark without Christian Eriksen on the pitch. It’d be a great story if Denmark pulled through without, but it seems unlikely. Belgium just has too many weapons to lose this one. Over in Group C, the Netherlands are playing at home against an Austrian side that had never won a match in the Euros before last week and Ukraine faces the weakest squad in the tournament in North Macedonia. Getting +400 is a solid return for three matches with a clear favorite defined.
AGGRESSIVE PARLAY: +2310
UKRAINE AND BOTH TO SCORE, BELGIUM WIN TO NIL, NETHERLANDS WIN AND OVER 2.5 GOALS
Reason: I didn’t mean to get this aggressive with this parlay, but I think there’s a lot of value available here. Ukraine conceded to Finland, Kazakhstan and Bahrain leading up to the tournament, and North Macedonia has scored in 16 of its past 17 matches. Belgium should be able to control the match with Denmark, who will be down Christian Eriksen, and the Red Devils already notched a shutout of Denmark in Copenhagen last year. The Netherlands got above 2.5 goals on their own last time out, and their defense remains a severe weakness, so the over appears a strong play. Add it up, and you’ve got a large payout on three outcomes that have a reasonable shot of happening.
