The biggest sporting event of the year, Euro 2012, kicks off this coming Friday June 8th in Warsaw, Poland, with Greece taking on the home side in the opening match. At Euro 2008 the Czechs were able to defeat Switzerland, the favored home side in the opening match. Similarly in 2004 the eventually champions, Greece, surprised the host Portugal team in the opening round match winning 2-1. Will Greece once again be able to win as an underdog against the host team in a European Championship?

Poland vs Greece Betting Options
There are three main betting options on this opening match of Euro 2012: money line, spread and totals.
Money Line Odds
As you can see Poland is a pretty big favorite to win this opening match in front of their home crowd. Poland has played well in friendlies of late, but they have not played a meaningful match since attempting to qualify for the 2010 World Cup (finished 5th in their group). Greece on the other hand won their sub par qualifying group to gain entry into this tournament and also participated in the 2010 World Cup.
Poland (-0.5) -105
Greece (+0.5) -111
A spread bet on Poland will payout if Poland wins the match, while a spread bet on Greece will payout if either Greece wins the match outright or the match finishes in a draw.
Over 2 +104
Under 2 -120
This is an over/under bet on the total number of goals that will be scored in the match. If exactly 2 goals are scored then the bets will be a ‘push’, which means the wagers will be returned.
