7 goals? It's not hockey!



If I predicted 1-0 and it happened no one cares. If I predict 4-3 and it happens Iím some sort of soccer genius savant. In soccer, 1-0 is a tightly fought game. 2-0 is a rout.

Football betting is sometimes on 90 mins (i.e. there can be a draw) or Outright winner. Betfair exchange odds suggest England are 54%, Italy 46% with bookies offering 4/5 (or 5/6) (-125/-120) and Evens (or 21/20) (+100/+105).

90 mins betting is about England 8/5 (+160), Draw 2/1 (+200), Itlay 2/1 (+200).

Note correct scores are after 90 mins and exclude extra time, and a correct score of 4-3 in the Premier League is usually very unlikely. I once actually put £1 on it at the last game of the season for Southampton (because a friend put £5 on), and it came in at 100/1!

Yes - the info above comes from
(i) https://www.oddschecker.com/football/euro-2020/winner
(ii) https://www.betfair.com/exchange/plus/en/football/uefa-euro-2020/italy-v-england-betting-30679197
I find betfair exchange the best place to go if one wants an estimate of the true odds of something happening, especially things like General Elections, Super Bowls etc.
