England vs. Serbia prediction, odds, time: UEFA Euro 2024 picks ...

16 Jun 2024
England vs Serbia

England's journey to end their 58-year trophy drought begins on Sunday when the Three Lions square off against Serbia in a Group C match of Euro 2024 at Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen. England famously have not lifted a trophy in a major competition since the 1966 World Cup. However, Gareth Southgate's men enter Euro 2024 as the +350 co-favorites, alongside France, to lift the trophy. Meanwhile, Serbia's best performance in the Euros was a quarterfinal appearance in 2000 when the team played as Yugoslavia. 

Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET. The Three Lions are the -230 favorites (risk $230 to win $100) in the latest Serbia vs. England odds, with the Serbians the +650 underdogs. A draw is priced at +350, and the over/under for total goals scored is 2.5. Before making any England vs. Serbia picks or Euro 2024 predictions, you need to see what proven SportsLine soccer expert Martin Green has to say.

After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Last year he was profitable in multiple areas on his soccer picks, including Euro qualifying (+6.30 units), the EFL Cup (+4.47), the FA Cup (+3.07), and the Champions League (+3.05) among others.

Now, Green has broken down Serbia vs. England from every angle and revealed his picks and Euro 2024 predictions. You can head to SportsLine now to see Green's picks. Here are the betting lines and trends for England vs. Serbia:

Serbia vs. England money line: Serbia +650, England -230, Draw +350Serbia vs. England over/under: 2.5 goals Serbia vs. England spread: Serbia +1.5 (-150), England -1.5 (+120)SRB: Aleksandar Mitrovic ranked second in the Saudi Pro League in goals (28)ENG: Harry Kane is England's all-time leading goalscorer (63)Serbia vs. England picks: See picks at SportsLineWhy you should back England

The Three Lions have a wealth of world-class attacking talent. Harry Kane is coming off a 36-goal season for Bayern Munich and is England's all-time leading goalscorer with 63. Jude Bellingham (19 La Liga goals last season) helped Real Madrid to a Champions League and La Liga double, while Phil Foden (19 Premier League goals last season) had a career season at Manchester City.

England will face a Serbian side that has been inconsistent. While Serbia are coming off a 3-0 win over Sweden in their last warmup match for Euro 2024, the team has had head-scratching performances against Austria (2-1 loss), Cyprus (1-0 win) and Russia (4-0 loss) this year. During qualifying for Euro 2024, Serbia drew twice with Bulgaria, which finished last in the group. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Serbia

Aleksandar Mitrovic is a dangerous target man in the box. A 6-foot-2 striker for Saudi Pro League club Al Hilal, Mitrovic scored 28 goals last season, which ranked second in the league behind only Cristiano Ronaldo (35). Mitrovic excels in the air like the rest of the team. Serbia, which was the tallest team at the 2022 World Cup, led all teams in headed attempts in qualifying for Euro 2024.

Mitrovic and the rest of the Serbian team have a good matchup against an ailing England defense. The Three Lions will be without anchor Harry Maguire because of injury, and Maguire's running mate, John Stones, may not be totally fit after battling an illness. The possible replacements for Maguire -- Lewis Dunk and Marc Guehi -- both have limited experience on the international level. See which team to pick here.
