Sports.bwin.com/news regulars will already be well aware that Euro 2016 has been a tournament capable of turning up plenty of betting trends.
First these pages sounded the alarm about the amount of matches being won by exactly one strike, before readers were tipped the wink with regards to the regularity with which under 2.5 goals wagers were hitting the bull’s eye.
Next up is a backable happening that’s come to pass 16 times in 25 games so far in the tournament, namely the sheer weight of late scoring to have transpired in France.
West Ham darling Dimitri Payet fired the bookmakers an early warning of what was to come with his 90th-minute winner for the hosts in the opening fixture and since then more than one third of the 46 goals netted at the championship have come between 75 minutes and the full-time whistle.
At bwin.com, punters can capitalise by betting on over 0.5 goals between 75:01 and full-time in all matches at the Euros.
Today’s matches see Switzerland meet France and Romania face off against Albania in the final round of fixtures in Group A.
Surprisingly at least one goal between 75:01 and full-time is a bigger price (6/5) in the former clash than the latter, for which the odds on the same wager are 23/20.
Les Bleus are the tournament’s leading scorers of goals inside the last quarter hour, with three, largely thanks to the efforts of the aforementioned Payet, who has struck twice.
The 29-year-old’s second strike of the tournament against Albania was actually the third time he has found the net in the 90th minute or later in his last four internationals, having scored the winner in France’s 3-2 victory over Cameroon prior to the tournament.
