The 2024 Euros are finally here! 

What an exciting time for soccer fans and bettors as we get to watch all the 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.

Germany vs. Scotland, 3 p.m. ET Friday, FOX and FOX Sports app

Antonio Rudiger 1+ shot attempt (-125)

Germany should win time of possession and get a good number of chances in this match. That will likely result in a bunch of corners, meaning Rudiger will get to show how good he is in the air. 

If you’re feeling a bit bolder, you could also take the +300 for at least one shot on goal. 

PICK: Antonio Rudiger 1+ shot attempt (bet $10 to win $18 total)
