Overall tournament record (3-2; +1 unit)

What an exciting time for soccer fans and bettors as we get to watch all the fun Euro action on FOX and the FOX Sports app for the next month.

As for gambling on these matches, I'll give you my best bets throughout the tournament. Basically, if I see an edge, and I'm betting on it, I'll share it. I want us all to win!


I believe in transparency, so I'll be sharing my tournament best bets record in every post.

After a fun first two days of betting, we are back for Day 3 of the Euros, which features a loaded slate of games. Let's keep the momentum going. 

Remember, only bet what you are comfortable with. So let's go ahead and dive into the fun.

Poland vs. Netherlands, 9 a.m ET Sunday, FS1 and FOX Sports app

The strength of the Netherlands is in the back and Poland being down Robert Lewandowski is a big loss for a team that has been a perennial disappointment/ underachiever internationally. 

I don't see Poland getting on the board in this one.

PICK: Poland Under 0.5 goals (+105)

Serbia vs. England, 3 p.m ET Sunday, FOX and FOX Sports app

Serbia are one of the weaker defensive sides here and after a friendly loss to Iceland, England have an opportunity to put up a big number and alleviate a lot of the fears and worries back home after that loss. 

Between Kane, Saka, Foden, Alexander-Arnold and Bellingham, England’s options are seemingly endless. Serbia does have attacking power as well, so expect England to keep the attack going for the full 90 minutes. 

TAA should be taking a majority of the set piece free kicks, so this bet at a plus price that he can put one on target is definitely worth a sprinkle.

PICK: England Over 2.5 goals (+205)
PICK: Trent Alexander-Arnold at least 1 shot on target (+190)
