Here there are some calculations about the possible profit when betting on own goals and penalties for Euro 2020.
Penalties happened in 12 games out of 44. Approximate odds for the 11-meter are in the region of 3.00. With a bet of $15 on a penalty kick in each game, we would be in the red by $110. And in the playoffs, the 11-meter was appointed only in one meeting out of eight, and even that Swiss Rodriguez did not score.
But even with a bet that there would be no penalty, there would still be no profit, they would be in the red by about $15-20.
There were nine own goals in 44 games. For all past European Championships, the same number has been scored. An own goal, for example, in the match Switzerland – Spain is estimated at 6.00, but it should be noted that the own goal was not one in the match. This type of goal scoring has been recorded in seven games. That is, with the odds of 6.00 and an own goal in each game, we would still get a small minus. But sometimes the ratio is slightly higher. Belgium – Italy is already 7.00, and in the match Ukraine – England is already 8.00. So in the distance, most likely, this bet would give you a plus.
