Spain v Italy Odds – Euro 2012 Betting

Spain v Italy odds were available at Bookmaker.eu, which was offering signup bonuses for Euro 2012 betting often ten times greater than that of their European counterparts.  Bookmaker.eu accepts wagering online from all across the globe here

Spain is the early favorite to win the Euro 2012, however, Italy had very short odds and, as such, this should prove to be quite a competitive match.  Oddsmakers have still given great value to the Italian side, 4/1 odds.  28 percent of punters were backing Italy.  Spain was priced around 4/5.  The Draw was listed at 5/2 odds

There is good reason why Spain is favored and provides decent value even at 4/5 odds.

These sides have met six times previously in major international tournaments, with Spain's only win coming on penalties in Euro 2008. Italy have won three (including a replay in the World Cup 1934) and drawn two of the others.

Italy are the only side Spain have played more than four times at major tournaments (Euros and World Cups) but never beaten in regular time (D3 L3).

Italy have only won two of their last nine games at European Championships (D5 L2).

Italy did not concede a single second half goal in the qualifiers - the only side not to do so.

Spain scored at least two goals in each of their eight qualification matches for Euro 2012.

No side has ever retained the European Championship title after winning the previous edition.

The Spaniards are on a run of 14 consecutive wins in competitive matches since the 0-1 defeat to Switzerland in the opening game of the 2010 World Cup.

Overall Spain have won 41 of their last 45 competitive games, drawing two and losing two.
