Betting: Portugal 5/1 to beat Hungary

Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. have failed to show their best form thus far but new Betway customers can back Fernando Santos' side at a huge quote of 5/1 on Wednesday

It's been a frustrating tournament for Portugal and no one encapsulates that feeling more than their captain, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Real Madrid man has been uncharacteristically wasteful in front of goal but will buoyed by the chances his side are creating.

Portugal are currently just 4/9 (1.44) to secure their first win of the tournament when they face Hungary and while that quote might not inspire many punters, the option to back the odds on favourites at 5/1 (6.0) will surely catch the eye.

To take up this enhanced offer simply register with Betway, back Portugal at the usual price and if they win, the winnings will be topped up to 5/1 (6.0) . What's more, if they fail to secure three points then the online firm will refund all losing stakes as a free bet up to £10.

Fernando Santos' side will have no shortage of motivation coming into this game given their haul of just two points thus far, although they may feel that it could easily have been six, having dominated their opening two matches.

The squad's quality is undoubted and while Hungary were impressive in their opening win over Austria, they face an uphill task to keep the likes of Ronaldo, Nani and Joao Moutinho quiet.

Ronaldo's poor form is something of a concern but having racked up the goals for Madrid again this season, it must only be a matter of time before he finds his rhythm and makes his mark on the tournament.

With topping the group still a distinct possibility, Portugal should be going all out to get the better of the 10/1 (11.0) underdogs and the odds certainly suggest they should be able to.

While backing them at 4/9 (1.44) is unlikely to attract too much attention as a one-off bet, opening a Betway account will make things much more interesting given their 5/1 (6.0) offer.
