Fancy a Flutter on the Ireland V Sweden Match?

Fancy a Flutter on the Ireland V Sweden Match?


Here are the odds, according to BoyleSports.


The Republic of Ireland have touched down in France in preparation for the first Euro 2016 Group E clash, against Sweden.

How wary should Republic of Ireland be of Sweden? Well, if we hope to reach the next round of the tournament, we are going to have to beat Sweden – the match takes place in the Stade de France on Monday.

The Swedes proved they are ready for a fight by bashing Wales 3-0 in Stockholm last week. Sweden, who are captained by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, will be watched closely on Monday.

History is not on our side this time. The Republic of Ireland have never beaten Sweden in a competitive fixture, but hold three friendly wins throughout their history together.

So as for a flutter, Sweden hold the upper hand in the betting at 7/5. Martin O’Neill’s side are currently 12/5 to record a rare win over Sweden.

The two sides are no strangers to a draw result when they meet, which is priced at 21/10 to be the result of Monday’s clash. The match Handicap sees Ireland -1 on offer at 13/2 with Sweden +1 odds on at 1/3.

Sweden’s captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic heads the first goalscorer betting at 4/1 with Ireland’s Shane Long next at 11/2 to get the Boys In Green out in front. Robbie Keane is priced at 13/2 to net first with Marcus Berg also on offer at 13/2.

In the Total Goals market, Under 1.5 goals is available at 6/4 with Over 3.5 goals available at 4/1 for optimistic punters to snap up.

BoyleSports Crossbar Challenge offer is available for the match and will result in a refund as a free bet on all losing bets across all markets if either side hits the crossbar.

Says Aoife Heffron of BoyleSports, “The Republic of Ireland may not have the most alluring track record against Sweden, but we have seen plenty of patriotic money for Martin O’Neill’s side to get their Euro 2016 quest off to a winning start. Punters expect the Boys In Green to cover the -1 handicap in the clash as they continue to snap up the 13/2 on offer. Another market that has the attention of punters is the first goalscorer market which sees Shane Long the top bet with BoyleSports customers at 11/2 to score first.”
