2004 winners of the Euros, Greece are 10/3 to qualify for the knockout stages of the event with Russsia (1/10) and Czech Republic (4/5) the two favourites to make it through. Greece will have to defeat Russia and are 4/1 to do so, while also hoping for a draw in the Poland/Czech Republic game offered at 9/4.
Punters do not hold out much hope for the Greeks, however, with Russia backed, at this early stage, to the tune of over 90% of all bets staked on the match. Russia represent one of Hills biggest liabilities to win the tournament as well, with a six figure sum to be paid out if they manage to upset the pre tournament odds of 20/1.
Going into the final round of games in Group A, there is still so much to play for, but our punters certainly seem to have made their minds up already, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Poland have also been very well backed by punters ahead of their game against Czech Republic, with 82% of all early bets staked on them to win.
