Group B in Euro 2024 wraps up on Monday, June 24, with the final round of matchups and all 4 teams still with a chance of qualification to the next round. We have Albania taking on Spain at 3:00 pm ET on FS1, with the Spanish having already secured progression, while Croatia and Italy will battle it out at the same start time live on FOX. 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 today.

Albania vs Spain best bet: Both teams to score (+102)

While Spain have little to prove in this matchup, the second-string players that come into the team will want to make an impression. That was the case for Ayoze Perez last time out, with the former Newcastle and Leicester winger having 3 shots in a 13-minute cameo against Italy. This Albanian team has defensive issues, shipping 2 goals to both Italy and Croatia, and Spain’s attacking options should be able to exploit that further. As for the Albania attack, they have nothing to lose having already exceeded expectations in this tough group, and will no doubt try hard to get on the scoresheet. With that in mind, betting on both teams to score looks to be a worthy wager.

Croatia vs Italy best bet: Italy ML (+140)

Croatia needing to win this game should see them forced to go on the attack against Italy, where a tie will be enough for the Italians to progress. As a result, Italy could be content to sit back and defend, looking to string together good moves on the counter as they did against Spain. While Italy struggled to make a real breakthrough against the Spanish, they should find things easier against this Croatian defense. Luciano Spalletti is trying to get the Italians playing in a similar style to his fantastic, Serie A-winning Napoli team. While that will take time, he should still encourage his side to push forward when Croatia leave themselves too open at the back. As a result, it is worth taking Italy to shade a win over a Croatian team that hasn’t looked at its best so far.
