Euro 2016 has been a license to print the folding stuff for trend-savvy punters, but there may be just six games left to profit from one of its richest seams.
No fewer than 14 of the tournament’s first 18 games (78%) have rewarded under-2.5-goals backers.
Unfortunately, the conductor is expected to call “all change” on this particular gravy train once the second round of group-stage fixtures are complete.
Sections in which only the side to finish bottom are automatically eliminated have placed the onus on avoiding defeat across the first two games in order to still be in with a fighting chance of reaching the second stage come match three.
Come the third and final round of group assignations the need for victory will become far more acute for many teams, with more open, goal-heavy matches the likely consequence.
Luckily there are still two more days to cash in on this particular trend, while the second set of clashes in Groups D and E are concluded.
Under 2.5 goals in Italy v Sweden is 9/20, while it’s 1/2 that Czech Republic v Croatia follows suit and 13/20 that Spain v Turkey turns up less than three strikes – a treble on all of them going low pays out at north of 5/2.
