The group stages continue on Friday with a match between England and Sweden. All Euro 2012 odds can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
Sweden comes into their second match of the tournament after a loss to host Ukraine by score of 2 – 1. Sweden relies mostly on a conservative defensive game plan, but as they saw their first match in order for them to keep up with the teams in their group they will have to open it up and play a more attacking style. This is exactly what we expect Sweden to do on Friday given the fact that if they lose this match their tournament will be over.
England is coming off of a draw versus France in their first match. England’s coach Roy Hodgson has a unique vantage point of knowing Sweden and its players very well from his many years managing clubs in both Sweden and Norway. Look for the English to continue their counter attack strategy as they will still be holding the fort down until Wayne Rooney returns in the final match of group stages versus the Ukraine. The English can all but advance out of the group stage with a win and three points in this match.
We like England against the spread in this game. Sweden just does not have the offensive firepower to be able to score the amount of times they will need to overcome the strong English counter attack so bet the English at the sports book.
