Ukraine Vs. France, Euro 2012: Lines, Odds And Picks

Football? Who needs football? So Ukraine and France are playing, big deal? Why do we need to watch the football? All we really need to do is hope for Ukrainian goals and that this kid is in the stadium with a camera on him. If Andriy Shevchenko wants to score a couple more and have the country named after him twice over, well, that's acceptable too.

Lines: Ukraine, +1/2 (-115). France, -1/2 (-105).

Odds: Ukraine, +290. France, -105. Draw, +235.

Over/Under: Over 2, -150. Under 2, +130.

Sevchenko can't do it again, can he? That is actually a lot less important than what is going on for France. They were destroyed in the center and if they don't get better there then it won't matter much what they have on the flanks, which is considerable. Will Yann M'Vila return? Will Yohan Cabaye remember how to competently pass the ball? All France need is one of those to happen, and it will. Vive la France! (That's code for bet on them)

Assuming Karim Benzema gets a modicum of service, France have two goals in them. They will get the over by themselves, but paying out at -150 it is not worth it.
