Wednesday’s bet of the day: Portugal to boost confidence
Portugal face Israel in the last of their warm-up matches ahead of the European Championship and will be eager to head into the tournament with a win.
The side have a wealth of options this year with key players such as Bruno Fernandes and Ruben Dias coming into their own in the Premier League this season.
They can support the main man Cristiano Ronaldo, and on Wednesday evening the home team should be able to see off Israel comfortably.
Portugal have lost just two of their last 28 matches, and have kept clean sheets in 14 of them.
Israel are always competitive and are not a poor team but in recent games against stronger opponents in Czech Republic and Denmark were defeated.
Both of these losses were without scoring, and we are predicting the same again when they face Portugal.
We are backing boss Fernando Santos and his Portugal team to come out on top when they meet Israel, and keep a clean sheet in the process.
What is the bet of the day?
The bet of the day is a single, double, treble or accumulator that we’ve picked because we believe it has the best chance of returning a profit.
It will have been exhaustively researched and we’ll explain why we think it offers value for money.
How do we select our bet of the day?
There are thousands of football matches each week and hundreds of markets available to bet on, and we look through all the fixtures to find a good value bet for you to place.
We look at the statistics, current form, league position and head-to-head stats of the two (or more) teams involved to assess its potential.
What do we look for in our bet of the day?
Value. First and foremost we want you to be backing something that in our eyes represents a good value investment.
What we’re looking for is an outcome that doesn’t just have a good chance of coming in but also, in our opinion, should be at shorter odds.
What price do we try to make our bet of the day?
There’s no specific price that the bet of the day should be, but we try to make sure that it is evens or above on most occasions.
This way you, the punter, are at the very least doubling your money if you decide to take on our bet of the day and it wins.
Remember, you should only bet what you can afford, as no bet is guaranteed to be a winner.
