Germany Vs. Greece, Euro 2012: Lines, Odds And Picks

Luckily for Greece, they were in Group A, which is like the Group of Death, only the complete opposite. They don't get to the knockout stages in any other group and now they have to take on Germany, who are the second favorites to win the tournament, if they aren't the first. Greece has no chance. Well, we said that in 2004 and they have a Euro title to prove to us just how stupid we were. Can they channel their 2004 selves again?

Lines: Germany, -1.5 (-105). Greece, +1.5 (-115).

Odds: Germany, -375. Greece, +950. Draw, +450.

Over/Under: Over 2.5, -110. Under 2.5, -110.

Of course Greece can't recreate the magic of 2004. They did the job eight years ago with a series of 1-0 wins, but this defense isn't super stout. They have their holes and Germany will exploit them. If the Greece defense thinks they can keep tabs on Mario Gomez, and the later runs from Mesut Ozil, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thomas Mueller, they are fooling themselves. Lukas Podolski doesn't even have to be good. A goal and a half is scary, but it is still worth it. Go on with Germany, and the -105 payout isn't too bad.

There are at a minimum, two goals in Germany. There might be three and a goal for Greece on a set piece against a too comfortable Germany defense wouldn't be a surprise. Go over for sure.
