England Betting Tips
Over the weekend I tipped Aston Villa double chance against Manchester City and it looked so good until the 80th minute when Yaya Toure scored past Brad Guzan who had a great game. I also recommended backing West Ham to beat QPR at odds of 1.95, Harry Redknapp’s side have had a poor start to the season and that continued on Sunday as West Ham beat QPR 2-0 therefore we landed our bet and it never looked in doubt really as the Hammers took the lead after just five minutes. Anyway onto this weeks Euro 2016 qualifiers, England face San Marino on Thursday at Wembley and then face Estonia in Estonia on Sunday evening.
England v San Marino (Thursday)
Daniel Sturridge is the only noticeable absence from the England squad and that should allow the in form Danny Welbeck to start up front for England against San Marino who are a very poor side. England are the 1.01 favourites to beat San Marino which immediately suggests what an awful side they are, they have not won an official game since 2004 when they beat Liechtenstein one goal to nil. In their last 13 games San Marino have scored just one goal whilst conceding 63 in this period of time which once again shows what a poor side they are. My favourite bet for this match is Danny Welbeck to score 2 or more goals at odds of 1.8 with SkyBet against a weak San Marino defence. Danny scored a hat trick in midweek in the Champions League against Galatasaray and has a point to prove for England as he attempts to take the number one striker role off Daniel Sturridge.
Estonia v England (Sunday)
On Sunday at 5pm England will be kicking off the second of their Euro 2016 qualifiers this week against Estonia who are one of the better sides in this weak Group E however they are still pretty dreadful, they are ranked 81st in the world compared with England who are ranked 18th in the world. Estonia did win their opening group match against Slovenia 1-0 however I fully expect Roy Hodgson’s side to win this game after a confidence boosting and promising win against Switzerland. These two countries have met on two occasions and England won both matches 3-0 in 2007 and it could be a bigger scoreline this time around as Estonia have recently lost against the likes of Sweden, Iceland, Finland and Latvia. I expect Wayne Rooney to play the full 90 minutes and star for England as he is unavailable for Manchester United for their next two matches due to the straight red card he received against West Ham. Playing the full 90 minutes obviously increases Wayne’s chances of scoring in this match and he will inevitably be keen to get a few goals under his belt for England and possibly take over Jimmy Greaves in England’s all time top goalscorers list.
