The second game of the first day of Euro 2012 features Russia, the favorites to take down group A, taking on the Czech Republic, who should never be taken lightly and have a very good shot at advancing past the group stage.

This spread is giving the Czech Republic a half-goal “handicap”. A spread bet on Russia pays out if they win the game, while a spread bet on the Czech’s pays out if they either win the game outright or it finishes in a draw.

If you think there will be more than 2 goals scored in the game you should bet the over and if you have a feeling it will be a scoreless draw or a 1-0 game then bet the under. If the game ends with 2 goals scored the bets will be pushed.
