Slovaks Offer Good Value vs Russia

In Group B action, Russia (0-1-0) takes on a Slovakian team (0-0-1) at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. The history between the Russian and Slovakian national teams is anything but storied, as these two squads have played only 8 matches with Russia slightly edging the all-time series 3-3-2.

SHARK BITES
  • Russia (6-2-2) and Slovakia (7-1-2) both had strong EURO qualifying campaigns.
  • The last three games these teams played have ended in 1-0 scores.
  • Slovakia is still looking for it’s first ever point in EURO championship competition.

The hosts of the next World Cup have to feel confident going into this one after playing a talented England squad to a 1-1 draw and as such, have been pegged as the +130 favorites on Bovada.

Slovakia, now the +3300 underdogs to win Group B, played well in their first match but fell victim to a late go-ahead goal from Wales and were dispatched 2-1. In a close matchup on paper, it would seem the +235 moneyline for Slovakia offers extremely good value.

The OVER/UNDER has been set at 2 for this one and is offering +110 to stay under that number. Based on the two teams low scoring history and Russia’s willingness to sit back and absorb pressure, a 1-0 result is a strong possibility.
