Shorthanded Wales in Tough Versus Portugal Wednesday

Hands up if you had this semifinal matchup in your Euro 2016 office pool. None of you? Just as I suspected. Yes Portugal takes on Wales in the first semifinal match in France and while the Welsh have performed incredibly well to get this far, the task of getting to the final becomes exponentially more difficult as they’ll be without two of the better players due to suspension.

  • These two teams have met three times with Portugal winning two and Wales winning one.
  • Gareth Bale is tied for second in scoring with three goals thus far.
  • OVER has cashed in four of Wales’ five games thus far at Euro 2016.

Portugal is the favorite here and is currently being offered at +115 in moneyline markets at online shop Bovada while Wales is +275 and the Draw is +210. In spread betting, this game is set at a Pick with Portugal -190 and Wales at +160. As far as the total is concerned both OVER and UNDER 2 goals is -110.

Wales has shocked the world by getting this far but looked like they absolutely deserved it with their 3-1 triumph over Belgium in the quarterfinals. The Welsh have been paced by the spectacular play of Gareth Bale but the Real Madrid man will have to be even more impressive with midfielder Aaron Ramsey and leftback Ben Davies missing out through the horrible “two yellow card suspension” rule.

Portugal is just about at 100 percent but will be without William Caravalho; certainly not a miss the level of Ramsey or Davies. Despite getting this far, the Portuguese have been a risky wager in three-way markets as the draw has cashed in all five of their contests thus far.
