Poland Vs. Russia, Euro 2012: Lines, Odds And Picks

The winner of this match should win the group. They are the two best teams in the group and if Russia wins they move to six points with battered Greece left, while Poland can move to four points with a match against the struggling Czech Republic remaining. With second place in the group matched up against the winner of the Group of Death, winning the group is a major deal.

Lines: Poland, +1/2 (-150). Russia, -1/2 (+130).

Odds: Poland, +205. Russia, +130. Draw, +230.

Over/Under: Over 2.5, +120. Under 2.5, -140.

The question here is whether Russia is as good as they looked in their opener or did the Czechs make them look better than they are. Their defense could be leaky, but they are certainly dangerous going forward. A draw isn't a bad bet because Roberto Lewandowski against the Russian defense could turn into a nightmare for Russia. In fact, it is a very, very good bet.

With -140 and +12- out there on a number as high as 2.5 it shows the uncertainty here. Uncertainty often works in the bettors favor, though, and the under is a good one, even without a great payout
