Today’s action features games from three different groups, including some of the top teams of this tournament in Group A1. Denmark hopes to scrub a 1-0 defeat in their last game with another three-point collection over second-seeded Austria. Meanwhile, Iceland and Israel go head-to-head to determine who reigns supreme in Group B2. This is the place to find everything, including team win odds, the over/under, and point spreads.
Moneyline: Denmark @ -125
Welcoming Austria to their home turf in Copenhagen, Denmark will look to erase a tough blow by putting some distance between themselves and Austria. Their competition is coming off a 1-1 draw against France, failing to hold off Les Bleus in the final stages of their meeting. Both teams opened up their tournament with a victory and then clashed on Matchday 2, leading to a close 2-1 decision in favour of Denmark.
After suffering a loss to Croatia, expect Denmark to be in top form defensively. They’ll aim to possess the ball as much as possible against an inferior Austrian club while keeping any offensive attack at bay. Recency bias suggests another Denmark victory, as the team has looked much sharper compared to Austria while having the ability to score goals at will.
Winner + Both Teams to Score: Denmark-No (+200)
Along with a Denmark win, feel free to pair it with the prop bet of both teams not scoring in this encounter. Austria struggles to put up much offense, and against Denmark, they’ll struggle mightily against Kasper Hjulmand’s club. Take Denmark to win, and pair it with this prop for a reasonable return and hope Denmark returns to their winning ways.
Moneyline: Iceland @ +170
It’s a big game between Iceland and Israel, as both teams jockey for the top spot in Group B2. Only two points separate the two teams, and the last time they met ended in a 2-2 draw. This time around, there will be a less run-and-gun style of play and better defending, and we expect a closer outcome as a result.

Iceland tends to possess the ball slightly more than Israel, and they also contain better assets up front. Let’s go with Iceland to squeak out the three points and avoid another draw.
