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 over the next several weeks.

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

Croatia vs. Albania, 9 a.m. ET Wednesday, FS1

This is a game Croatia needs to win and preferably by multiple goals. But Albania will make it tough. After shocking Italy with the early goal, it really didn’t offer much of an offensive threat — 2-0 Croatia doesn’t feel farfetched. 

PICK: Under 2.5 goals scored

Did Cristiano Ronaldo impress or disappoint for Portugal in opening match vs. Czechia?

Germany vs. Hungary, noon ET Wednesday, FS1

We hit on an Antonio Rudiger prop in the opener, and I'm going back to the well here. Going to sprinkle some money on him for the exact same reasons as we played him vs. Scotland.

PICK: Antonio Rudiger at least one shot on target (+260)
