2024 UEFA Euro Qualifying Picks 

Updated:

The international break is drawing to a close around the world, but there is still time for some more 2024 UEFA Euro qualifying picks before the domestic soccer resumes. 

With no fewer than 14 matches taking place across Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12, I have scoured the bookies’ odds to find the best Euro qualifying picks for this week. 

Keep reading to discover my recommended Euro qualifying picks, along with a quick international break recap and some useful betting trends. 

What’s Already Happened During the International Break? 

Qualifying for next summer’s European Championship resumed last Thursday, and we have been treated to lots of exciting matches since then. 

Following Spain’s 7-1 thrashing of Georgia, Croatia and Sweden claimed 5-0 wins against Latvia and Estonia, respectively. There were also a couple of surprising draws on Saturday, with Ukraine holding England and North Macedonia frustrating Italy. 

On Sunday, Slovenia crushed San Marino 4-0, while Greece hammered Gibraltar 5-0. As you will learn in the next section, San Marino and Gibraltar are among the worst-performing teams in the competition. 

UEFA Euro 2024 Qualifying Betting Trends 

Before you dive into my Euro qualifying picks, be sure to study the useful betting trends below. With Matchday 6 of the 2024 UEFA Euro qualifying in full swing, there is no shortage of statistics and patterns to analyze. 

  • Scotland, France, and Portugal are five for five in Euro 2024 Qualifying 
  • England, Croatia, Czechia, Belgium, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland and Romania are also unbeaten 
  • Cyprus, Gibraltar, Malta, Latvia, San Marino and Liechtenstein have lost all their games 
  • Faroe Islands, Estonia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Kosovo and Andorra have failed to taste victory 
  • England (16), Portugal (15) and Switzerland (14) are the leading scorers in Euro 2024 Qualifying 
  • San Marino (21), Gibraltar (17) and Liechtenstein (16) have the worst defensive records 
  • France and Portugal are the only teams yet to concede a single goal in Euro 2024 Qualifying 
  • San Marino and Gibraltar are the only sides without a goal to their name 

Scotland, France, and Portugal are on the verge of qualifying for next summer’s tournament after winning all five of their opening matches. It is also worth noting that eight other teams – including England – remain unbeaten. 

By contrast, Cyprus, Gibraltar, Malta, Latvia, San Marino, and Liechtenstein have failed to pick up a single point in Euro 2024 qualifying. With that in mind, you should target these teams to lose their upcoming matches. 

There are also plenty of goal trends to consider. If you’re someone who enjoys exploring the goal markets when betting on soccer, you can target both the highest-scoring and lowest-scoring teams for totals, BTTS, and other goal-based markets. 

Top Euro Qualifying Picks for This Week 

It’s time for me to share my Euro qualifying picks and predictions. Now that you’re up to speed on all the latest betting trends, we can start looking ahead to the upcoming games. 

There are a handful of matches taking place on Monday, but my Euro qualifying picks concern three clashes taking place on Tuesday. That gives you plenty of time to lock in your Euro qualifying picks and predictions. 

Let’s kick things off with Italy vs. Ukraine. I will then share my prediction for Norway vs. Georgia before wrapping this up with my Switzerland vs. Andorra prediction. 

Italy vs. Ukraine Prediction 

Odds: Italy (-223); Draw (+300); Ukraine (+500) 

It would not be unfair to say that Italy has experienced a below-par qualifying campaign up to now. Possessing a record of one win, one draw, and one loss, the Euro 2016 champions have taken four points from a possible nine, although they have two games in hand on England in Group C. 

The Italians were held to a 1-1 draw by North Macedonia on Saturday, with Enis Bardhi canceling out Ciro Immobile’s strike. It is worth noting, however, that Italy racked up nine shots while enjoying 73% possession. 

Despite holding England to a 1-1 draw last time out, Ukraine managed a solitary attempt on target while seeing just 31% of the ball. The Ukrainians will be buoyed by that result, but they will struggle to get anything from Tuesday’s clash at the San Siro. 

Best Bet: Italy (-223) 

Serbia played against Lithuania
Aleksandar Mitrovic maade his first-half hat-trick

Norway vs. Georgia Prediction 

Odds: Norway (-350); Draw (+375); Georgia (+800) 

Norway heads into Tuesday’s showdown with Georgia on the back of a 6-0 victory over Jordan, meaning the Norwegians have won each of their last two matches. Plus, Erling Haaland was rested for the friendly triumph against Jordan, keeping him fresh for the upcoming qualifier. 

Haaland has scored 24 goals in 25 international appearances and has already netted six goals in four Premier League games for Manchester City this season, cementing his status among the deadliest strikers in world soccer. 

On the flip side, Georgia endured a 7-1 thrashing at the hands of Spain last time out. Having conceded 11 goals across four qualifiers so far, the Georgians are on course to suffer another heavy defeat when they visit Oslo.

Switzerland vs. Andorra Prediction 

Odds: Switzerland (-10000); Draw (+1200); Andorra (+2800) 

As you can see, the bookies expect Switzerland to make light work of Andorra. The Swiss are priced at just -10000 to claim all three points on Tuesday, while the Andorrans are priced at +2800 to secure the victory. 

Switzerland sits atop Group I thanks to an unbeaten run of three wins and two draws. Better still, the Red Crosses have scored 14 goals in five games. At the opposite end of the standings, winless Andorra occupies last place after taking two points from a possible 15. 

Unless you’re betting against Switzerland, the moneyline odds are not worth bothering with here. For that reason, I recommend steering clear of the regular win/draw/loss market and exploring the totals and handicaps.
