Euro 2020 action continues Friday, June 18 with Groups D and E in action. England, Czech Republic and Slovakia can qualify for the knockout round with wins in their respective contests. Sweden will be looking to add three points to the ledger while Croatia and Scotland look to tally their first points of the tournament.

Here’s how the public is betting on Friday’s matches.

Tie (+250): 8% handle, 8% bets
Slovakia (+400): 13% handle, 12% bets

Sweden is getting the majority of looks from bettors after a 0-0 draw with Sweden, but Slovakia’s odds have definitely improved after a win in the opening group game against Poland. At +400, there’s the potential for even more payoff if Slovakia’s luck continues.

Despite losing to England in the opening game, Croatia remains the favorite here with 77 percent of bets coming on the 2018 World Cup runners-up. Czech Republic has also seen a bump in value after winning the opening group stage game, but is not expected to keep up with Croatia here.

England vs. Scotland

England (-305): 92% handle, 94% bets
Tie (+410): 2% handle, 2% bets
Scotland (+950): 6% handle, 4% bets

In one of the most anticipated Euro 2020 games from a fan perspective, England is heavily favored to take down Scotland according to the bettors. The Three Lions are receiving 94 percent of all wagers on the game, meaning any bets on Scotland are likely coming from optimistic supporters.
