It’s knockout time in Euro 2024 as we enter the second round and the Last 16 matchups. We have 2 games each day between Saturday, June 29 and Tuesday, July 2, and by that latter date we’ll know who our Euro 2024 quarterfinalists are. First up, we have Switzerland taking on Italy, which will air live on FS1 at 12:00 pm ET. Then it’s time to switch the channel over to FOX, as live at 3:00 pm ET on that station we’ll have tournament hosts Germany facing Euro 2020 semifinalists Denmark. 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 Saturday.

Switzerland vs Italy best bet: Both teams to score (+110)

Both teams have scored in all of Switzerland’s Euro 2024 games, while there have been goals at both ends in 2 of Italy’s 3 matchups and they have conceded in all of their games. Switzerland have scored in 6 successive matchups and their attack looks well balanced with Bologna pair Dan Ndoye and Michel Aebischer particularly catching the eye, while star forward Breel Embolo is now fit after playing a bit-part role in the opening games. Italy’s attack perhaps hasn’t clicked into gear just yet and strikers Gianluca Scamacca and Mateo Retegui are yet to get off the mark. However, the Azzurri have scored in 14 of their last 16 competitive games and should be able to find a way through against Switzerland, who conceded in all their group games.

Germany vs Denmark best bet: Germany ML (-165)

Germany were moments away from allowing Switzerland to beat them out for top spot in Group A but super-sub Niclas Fullkrug once again delivered off the bench with a 92nd-minute equalizer in Frankfurt. That saw Die Mannschaft finish the group stage on 7 points from a possible 9, but they won all 3 games on expected goals and should be confident of continuing their journey on Saturday. The Euro 2024 hosts have generated 5.1 expected goals to their opponents’ 1.8 and come up against a Denmark team who qualified second from Group C despite not winning a single one of their games.

Semi-finalists in Euro 2020, Denmark have not reached the same heights in Germany so far, and a goalless tie against Serbia last time out leaves them with just 2 goals from 3 games. Kasper Hjulmand’s team has not looked bad in defense, but they are yet to face an attack of any real threat and the free-scoring Germans may be able to find holes that Slovenia, England and Serbia could not.
