The Euro 2024 group stage wraps up on Wednesday, June 26, with Group E and Group F coming to a close. We have a pair of Group E matchups kicking off at 12:00 pm ET, as Slovakia face Romania live on FS1 while Ukraine take on Belgium on FOX. Immediately following those matchups, the Czech Republic will battle Turkey at 3:00 pm ET on FS1 as Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal face Georgia at the same 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 Wednesday.

Ukraine vs Belgium best bet: Belgium ML (-155)

Heading into this tournament, Belgium and Ukraine were seen as the favorites to progress from this group. However, they head into their final group clash in Stuttgart knowing that it’s unlikely that both teams will make the last 16. Thanks to the pair suffering shock opening game defeats, all 4 teams in Group E are level on 3 points. Ukraine have the worst goal difference of any of the 4, so anything less than a win likely sends them home. While Belgium are in a stronger position, the Red Devils were expected to win the group so the pressure is on them to secure all 3 points.

Ukraine did turn things around against Slovakia last time out, but they’ve struggled early in this group. A 3-0 defeat at the hands of Romania has dented their chances of progressing, while they needed a second-half turnaround after falling 1-0 down to Slovakia. With Ukraine heading into their toughest test of the group, the nature of their performances are a concern. Belgium meanwhile have been much better, and very unfortunate given striker Romelu Lukaku has already had 3 goals disallowed for being offside. Expect Belgium to flex their offensive muscles and secure a straightforward win against Ukraine.

Georgia vs Portugal best bet: Over 2.5 goals (-172)

Portugal needed a late winner to beat Czech Republic in their opening game, but they showed how clinical they can be in a 3-0 victory over Turkey. This secured top spot in Group F for Portugal, and what is likely to be a much-changed starting 11 will be eager to impress head coach Roberto Martinez. Portugal have significant strength in depth in the attacking areas and have scored 13 goals across their last 5 games, with all of those featuring at least 3 goals. Another over 2.5 goals bet landing looks to be a good bet in this one, with Georgia likely to once again show no fear in going on the offensive.
