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

Group B, being the Group of Death, will provide one great match every match day. On Saturday it is Germany vs. Portugal that grabs the headlines. The Germans are one of the tournament favorites along with Spain, and the Portuguese have Cristiano Ronaldo, who is enough all on his own, or at least that is what we are led to believe.

Lines: Germany, -1/2 (+100). Portugal, +1/2 (-120).

Odds: Germany, +100. Portugal, +250. Draw, +230.

Over/Under: Over 2.5, +100. Under 2.5, -120.

Germany, Germany, Germany. Put your money on them before the lines moves because, if the world is sane, it will move. Ronaldo is brilliant, but there isn't much support for him and people seem to overlook this. For God's sake, Raul Meireles is heavily depended upon! You're better off burning your money than putting it in the hands of Meireles. Miguel Veloso is nice, but he won't be able to shackle Mesut Ozil, who will pull the strings for Germany en route to an easy victory. This would be a good bet at -1. At -1/2, get your money down quick.

This match also gives you a chance to roll with that Germany domination into the over. It would not be a surprise in the slightest if the Germans managed the over all alone, but with the way they have looked in their friendlies they have slow started all over them. Stay under.
