Euro Final Set To Be Biggest Since World Cup Final
Up to 500 bets per minute are set to be placed on tonight's Euros Final once the game kicks off, report William Hill. Anywhere up to £25 million is expected to have been wagered on the match in the build up to the game in the UK alone. "The final of any major tournament is always going to be a massive draw for our punters and they have already been getting involved with gusto. As things stand, over half of all bets placed have been for Spain to win," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "This match is set to be the biggest since the World Cup Final in 2010."
Spain are 23/20 to win the match in 90 minutes, with Italy 11/4 and the draw 21/10. Spain are 8/15 to lift the trophy, while Italy are 6/4 to do so. Hills are offering a couple of matchwinners for tonight's game, going 7/1 for Balotelli to score and Italy to win in 90 minutes, while the same price is offered for Iniesta to score anytime and Spain to win in 90 minutes. The match is 4/1 to go to penalties.
Llorente and Torres are the 6/1 favourites to open the scoring tonight, but should Del Bosque decide that he wants to start with no strikers once again, Fabregas and Pedro are offered at 7/1 and 9/1 repectively. Mario Balotelli looks the most likely to score for the Italians at 7/1.
