Andy Schooler has a stats-based Bet Builder for Tuesday’s Euro 2020 clash between Hungary and Portugal…
“Orban has had at least one shot in all six competitive starts for Hungary this season, with his threat underlined by the fact he had nine shots in his last five Bundesliga games of 2020/21.”

Portugal may be favourites to get their European title defence off to a flier in this match but it’s the Hungary players who are worth focusing on in search of profit.
Centre-back Willi Orban will provide a big threat for the hosts from set-pieces, just as he does for his club, Red Bull Leipzig.
He’s scored five international goals in 18 competitive starts but it’s the shots market in which he’s worth backing here.
Orban has had at least one shot in all six competitive starts for Hungary this season, with his threat underlined by the fact he had nine shots in his last five Bundesliga games of 2020/21.
Adding Orban 1+ shot to 20+ Hungary booking points results in a price of 3.412/5.
Hungary have picked up 20+ in 15 of their last 19 competitive internationals and are one of best card collectors on show at Euro 2020. The majority of those 19 games have actually seen them pick up 30+.
They’ll be playing in front of a full house in Budapest and their vociferous fans should inject some added energy into the players.
Don’t be surprised to see them flying around early on and giving referee Cuneyt Cakir a decision or two to make.
The Turkish official can be a bit hit or miss but he’s produced 40+ booking points in 15 of his last 23 European club matches and when he’s feeling strict, the cards can fly.
Hungary also have to deal with a strong attacking line-up so all things considered, this aspect looks worth adding to the Bet Builder.
