Euro 2020 sharp money and line movement reportBy Patrick Everson
Switzerland opened a -150 favorite at BetMGM Nevada and is still there at 12:30 a.m. ET Sunday, several hours before the match begins. Turkey moved from +400 to +390 and Draw from +310 to +290. "This game doesn't have near as much action as Italy-Wales," BetMGM Nevada's Scott Shelton said, alluding to the Sunday's other Euro match. "Tickets are 2/1 and money 3/1 on Turkey." That mirrors Italy-Wales, as bettors are on the underdog in both matches. The total is at 2.5 (Over -130), with ticket count 3/1 and money almost 5/1 on the Over.

Switzerland vs Turkey predictions
Though Turkey was seen as a potential darkhorse ahead of the Euros, they have not even been competitive through two matches. First dispatched by a great Italian side, Turkey then followed it up by an equally toothless performance against Wales. The two consecutive defeats have left them to fight for scraps, and third place in Group A, against Switzerland.
While Switzerland were swatted aside by Italy with ease as well, they were considerably better against Wales. A 1-1 draw was a fair result, but the Swiss controlled the match and their xG of 1.98 is indicative of the chances they created through Breel Embolo up top. Switzerland are, traditionally, dependant on Xherdan Shaqiri in the final third, but Embolo has been their most dangerous player in the tournament.
Switzerland has lacked attacking intent for the majority of the tournament and may not see Shaqiri's best at all this summer, but they still have enough talent to break Turkey down. Turkey's back five has been completely out of sorts through two matches, and even the ever-steady Caglar Soyuncu was poor against Wales. With Switzerland desperate for a result to give themselves a chance and Turkey not showing any fight, this one is only going to go one way.
PREDICTION: Switzerland (-163)
With Shaqiri struggling to impact games for Switzerland and stalwart striker Haris Seferovic having another steady, unflashy tournament leading the line, it has fallen on Embolo to create opportunities for Switzerland. He has done just that, finishing moves well — including the lone goal for his country so far — as well as creating chances by receiving the ball in dangerous areas and laying it off for teammates.
Switzerland will push forward in this one, with three points vital to their hopes of progressing. The movement of Wales absolutely killed Turkey in the second matchday, with the Dragons unlucky not to put more past a poor Turkey team. Embolo's movement is superb and, with Seferovic playing highest and Embolo given a more free role, he'll find plenty of space against Turkey.
Embolo can add to his goalscoring account at this year's Euros and help to give Switzerland all three points.
PREDICTION: Anytime goalscorer - Breel Embolo (+175)
