    SportsLine's soccer expert Martin Green has locked in his best bets for the Italy vs. Spain Group B match

    A titanic battle in the UEFA Euro 2024 takes place at Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, on Thursday as two-time title winner Spain take on defending champion Italy in a Group B showdown. Spain, who rolled past Croatia 3-0 in their group-stage opener, captured the crown in Euro 2012 to become the first back-to-back winners in tournament history. Italy are looking to become the second, and they began that mission by edging Albania 2-1 in their first group-stage contest. The Italians got past the Spaniards on penalties in the Euro 2020 semifinals before knocking off England in identical fashion for the title.

    Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET. The Spaniards are +125 favorites (risk $100 to win $125) in the latest Spain vs. Italy odds via SportsLine consensus, while the Italians are +260 underdogs. A 90-minute draw is priced at +200, and the over/under for total goals scored is 2.5 (For more soccer coverage, click here).

    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, Green was profitable in multiple areas on his soccer picks, including the Champions League (+3.05 units), FA Cup (+3.07), EFL Cup (+4.47) and Euro 2024 qualifiers (+6.30), among others. He also was solid with his Premier League picks this year, going 30-22-1 (+7.07).

    Green knows that under manager Luis de la Fuente, Spain have lost just one of their 11 competitive matches, winning seven straight. The Spaniards have gone 10-2-1 in their last 13 overall contests and have defeated Italy 2-1 in each of their last two meetings - both in the semifinals of the UEFA Nations League (2021, 2023). Striker Alvaro Morata opened the scoring for Spain in the opener of this tournament with his 35th goal, tying him for fourth place on the national team's all-time list.  

    The expert also has taken into account that Italy are riding a seven-game unbeaten streak across all competitions (5-2-0) and have lost just one of their last 12 (8-3-1).
