Betting: Portugal 6/1 to beat Austria

Betway are taking on Fernando Santos' side as they look to get their first Euro 2016 win against a team missing one of their key defensive influences

Group F has been one of the most surprising at Euro 2016. Portugal failed to get the better of an Iceland team they were largely expected to beat, but it was Austria's 2-0 defeat against rank outsiders Hungary that raised the most eyebrows.

Marcel Koller's side were widely tipped to be the dark horses of this tournament at around 40/1 (41.0) but their performance on matchday one will have left punters shocked and disappointed in equal measure.

Portugal will be expecting a better performance too, but they may not have to be that much better than they were against Iceland unless there's a significant improvement from Austria at Parc des Princes.

Betway are offering new customers the chance to back the favourites at 6/1 (7.0). Cristiano Ronaldo's side will have their backers at around 10/11 (1.91) but new players can benefit from a massive price boost.

To take up this price simply sign up with Betway using the links provided, back Portugal at the usual price shown on site and if they win, the return will be topped up to reflect the enhanced odds. What's more, anyone taking up this offer is assured of their money back as a free bet even if it fails to win and land the 6/1 (7.0) odds.

It wasn't just the scoreline against Hungary that was a big blow to Austria's chances; a red card for Aleksander Drogovic will deny Koller one of his key defensive influences against the attacking talents of Ronaldo, Nani and Joao Moutinho.

Portugal may not be everyone's idea of a bet at odds-on quotes but at 6/1 (7.0) they look a tasty prospect to kick start their European Championship campaign in Paris, especially with the safety net of a free bet if they fail to get the job done.

The usual £30 matched bet offer is still available as an alternative for new Betway customers.
