We have expert soccer predictions for EVERY Euro 2024 and Copa America game throughout both tournaments, but for now, let’s dive into our Euro 2024 best bets for Friday, June 21.

Poland vs Austria best bet: Austria ML (-105)

Both Poland and Austria gave valiant efforts in their opening Euro 2024 games, only to each fall to narrow defeats against 2 of the top soccer nations in the world, but there was more to like about the performance of one than the other. The Poles took an early lead against the Netherlands but lacked cutting edge from then on and allowed a mammoth 21 shots against the Dutch, who eventually won 2-1 as their relentless pressure paid off. As for Austria, they arguably outplayed France and only lost due to an own goal from Maximilan Wober. Based on those performances and how both teams looked coming into the tournament, Austria should be able to get the better of Poland.

Netherlands vs France best bet: Tie (+220)

Both France and the Netherlands made winning starts to their Euro 2024 campaigns, but there was little to suggest in either game that these 2 are the elite teams that many talked them up to be. Les Bleus stuttered to a 1-0 victory over Austria which was earned via an own goal from Maximilian Wober, while the Dutch struggled to create meaningful chances for long periods against Poland before Wout Weghorst’s late strike sealed the victory. It was far from vintage from either team, making this huge clash at the top of Group D a difficult one to call. France are the betting favorites but could be without talisman Kylian Mbappe which could cause them problems in attack, especially after they failed to find the net themselves against Austria. France have recorded 3 straight shutouts, though, and boast plenty of attacking talent even in Mbappe’s absence, so a low-scoring tie could be the outcome on Friday.
