It's the Cristiano Ronaldo Show. Good, bad or otherwise, the spotlight will be on him from this point forward and he will be the topic of discussion, whether Portugal win or lose. Cristiano, you better be good.
Lines: Czech Republic, +1/2 (+120). Portugal, -1/2 (-140).
Odds: Czech Republic, +400. Portugal, -140. Draw, +255.
Over/Under: Over 2.5, +120. Under 2.5, -140.
The line might be -1 to Portugal before kick off and for good reason. Nobody expected much of the Czech Republic coming into the tournament and while they did exceeded expectations in getting out of the group, but they did so out of a weak group and didn't even play well for half of their 270 minutes in the tournament. Hell, it wouldn't be hard to argue that they weren't good for even two-thirds of their 270 minutes. Oh, and Portugal might be the third-best team in the tournament. Big money on Portugal.
This one is likely to go under, but the -140 doesn't make it worth it. The over isn't a great bet, but at +120 there are worse risks to take.
