Euro 2020 Group B same game parlay (+653 odds): Denmark vs. Belgium

Euro 2020 Group B same game parlay (+653 odds): Denmark vs. Belgium

After cashing our same game parlay for Italy vs. Switzerland at +796 odds, the nonstop Euro 2020 action rolls on with even more top-class soccer as Thursday brings a key Group B showdown in Denmark vs. Belgium.

The Danes’ first match against Finland was memorable for all the wrong reasons as their star player Christian Eriksen collapsed before half-time having suffered a cardiac arrest.

The game was eventually restarted hours afterwards and ended with a 1-0 win to Finland, with Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg missing a penalty for Denmark.

So Denmark needs to bounce back in Copenhagen, but without their best player the Danes have a daunting task against the team ranked the best in the world by Fifa.

Belgium cruised to an impressive opening success at Euro 2020 by beating Russia 3-0 in St. Petersburg and looks to have a great chance of claiming its first major tournament success.

Here is the same game parlay we have prepared for Denmark vs. Belgium:

Over 2.5 goals (+116)

Romelu Lukaku to score at anytime (+105)

Under 30 points on card index (+110)

Parlay odds: +653

Let’s take a look at each leg of the parlay and explain the reasoning behind it:

Over 2.5 goals (+116)

Russia had no answer to Belgium’s forward power on Sunday and Denmark may not be able to keep the Red Devils under control either.

Robert Martinez’s Belgium team scored only one goal in their last two warm-up games against Croatia and Greece but they scored eight times against Belarus in their last World Cup qualifier.

The news that star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has returned to practice after missing the game in St Petersburg is another reason to be confident of there being at least three goals in the game.

Denmark will need to be positive after a defeat to what was regarded as the weakest team in the group but that approach could produce gaps in defense which Belgium can exploit as well as increasing the chances of the home side scoring.

Romelu Lukaku to score at anytime (+105)

Romelu Lukaku was considered the most likely winner of the tournament’s Golden Boot, awarded to the player who scores the highest number of goals, and he made an excellent start.

The Inter Milan striker found the net twice in Belgium’s 3-0 win over Russia and has made a smooth transition from his domestic season in Italy, where he helped his team win the Serie A title.

Belgium creates a lot of opportunities for the striker and De Bruyne’s potential return means the former Manchester United forward could get even more chances.

Under 30 points on card index (+110)

There is a lot at stake in these matches, which are the second of three group games each team plays, but that does not necessarily mean there will be lots of cards shown.

Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers handed out just 41 yellow cards and two red cards in 20 games in the Netherlands last season.

Referees are keeping their cards in their pockets in this tournament, so there seems a good chance there will be two or fewer yellow cards shown in this clash.

With ten points awarded for a yellow and 25 for a red, go for there being fewer than 30 points in this one.
