Betting: Portugal 6/1 to beat Poland

With Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. expected to progress to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, Betway are offering new customers the chance to back the favourites at 6/1 to win in Marseille

The first quarter final of Euro 2016 pits Poland against Portugal in Marseille. While the latter are the favourites to continue their progress in France, Betway are enhancing the odds available on them for any new customers.

The online firm are going 6/1 (7.0) about the 5/4 (2.25) shots for anyone registering for an account. To take up this price, simply use the links provided to sign up, back Portugal at the usual price shown on site and if they win, the returns will be topped up to the enhanced price.

What's more, anyone taking advantage of this offer will get their money back as a free bet if the 6/1 (7.0) wager doesn't win. Poland needed penalties to get past Switzerland and Adam Nawalka's side certainly looked second best for large parts of the second half. Portugal squeezed past the well fancied Croatia in their last 16 tie and they are just 5/4 (2.25) to seal a semi-final spot in normal time.

This game certainly doesn't look like a sure-thing for the Iberian side and some punters may feel that although they're the most likely victors, odds of 5/4 (2.25) are too short to consider backing at this point.

The option to take up 6/1 (7.0) with Betway though, offers significantly increased returns and makes backing Santos' side a much more appealing prospect.

With the likes of Nani and Ricardo Quaresma proving Portugal are much more than just a one man team, there is now a very real chance that the pre-tournament 18/1 (19.0) chances will be faced with a semi-final according to the bookmakers.

If Cristiano Ronaldo is able to produce anything close to his best then Santos' men look set to be a tough task for any team left in the competition and the 6/1 (7.0) quotes from Betway are sure to be popular.
