Hungary in Position to Win Group F

To the surprise of just about everyone that follows the sport, Hungary is sitting on top of Group F entering Wednesday’s contest versus Portugal with an opportunity to win the group. Hungary entered Euro 2016 with the longest odds to win the highly-competitive group and can do so with a three-point haul versus floundering Portugal Wednesday.

SHARK BITES
  • Hungary has been held scoreless in its last three meetings with Portugal.
  • Portugal has won seven of the 10 all-time meetings with Hungary.
  • Raphael Guerreiro and André Gomes are doubts for Portugal.

Online book Bovada is presently offering Portugal as a heavy fave at -230 in moneyline markets while Hungary is +750 and the Draw is +325. As far as the spread, Portugal is presently a 1-goal favorite priced at -140 to cover while Hungary is +115 in the underdog role. Finally, the total is tabbed at two goals with OVER at -145 and UNDER +120.

Portugal should really have four points entering this contest, but Cristiano Ronaldo nailed the post on an attempted penalty kick late in Portugal’s 0-0 draw with Austria. Portugal has shown very little in terms of finishing having found the back of the net just once in their two games thus far.

Hungary has been one of the surprises of the tournament as they sit atop the group with four points. They are coming off a 1-1 draw with Iceland after a late own goal salvaged a point and won their first game of the tournament 2-0 over Austria.
