Spain Vs. Croatia, Euro 2012: Lines, Odds And Picks

Apparently the Euros are Croatia's big stage. They have played their best at the tournament and are playing well again this time around, sitting on four points in Group C, which may not be the "Group of Death", but is the "Group of Really Super Duper Hard". And they still have Spain left to play? Well, hell, go on then Checkerboards.

Lines: Spain, -1 (+105). Croatia, +1 (-125).

Odds: Spain, -160. Croatia, +700. Draw, +210.

Over/Under: Over 2.5, -135. Under 2.5, +115.

A full goal to Spain? That's a surprise considering how well the Croatians have played and it seems like that line is dependent on Fernando Torres playing as spectacularly as he did against Ireland. That wouldn't shock people, because we know he is capable of it, but to put the line dependent on it? That's asking a lot, especially when a draw works just fine for Spain. The problem is that a scoreless draw likely doesn't do it for Croatia and they can be sucked out for a goal, which is a Spain one-goal win. The lines suck, don't bet it.

The under is another good bet because the match could very well turn into a handshake draw in the last half-hour. Let that happen and take the 0-0 or 1-1 draw, otherwise known as the under and on a nice payout.
