Las Vegas Euro 2012 Odds: Holland Facing Elimination vs Portugal

One of the top pre-tournament favorites on the Las Vegas Odds to win Euro 2012 needs a big victory on Sunday afternoon (2:45 pm Eastern) just to have a chance of advancing from Group B in the first round, as the Netherlands prepares to face Portugal in Kharkiv, Ukraine.
After opening the European championship with two losses the Netherlands has plummeted to 25/1 odds to win the title, behind eight other teams and level with Croatia at the 16-team tournament. The Dutch were misfiring on all cylinders in their opening 1-0 loss on the Las Vegas Euro 2012 Odds to lightly-regarded Denmark last Saturday, before subsequently falling 2-1 at the hands of Germany on Wednesday.
Robin Van Persie, of whom much was expected at this tournament, managed to salvage some pride for Holland with a late strike against the Germans but they were unable to find an equalizer and now sit in danger of being sent home early from the Group of Death. Mark Van Bommel, Nigel De Jong and Jetro Willems have been shown the yellow card through two matches.
Portugal rebounded from a disappointing 1-0 loss to Germany in its opening match to fend off a determined Denmark side 3-2 on Wednesday, getting early goals from Pepe and Hélder Postiga before blowing that lead and requiring a late game-winning strike from Silvestre Varela to book the three points.
