Can the Three Lions do themselves a huge favour on Saturday and grab a massive opening victory in their game against Italy in Manaus? This is where it all begins for Roy Hodgson’s men, but the bookmakers have kept England pencilled in as underdogs for the match. Not surprisingly perhaps given the fact that England have failed to score in their last three competitive matches against the Italians.

But England fans will be hoping that the attacking enthusiasm of the young England side can trouble the Italians, who are on a seven match winless streak. So there could be a window of opportunity for them to get a precious three points in the bag before having to face Uruguay in their second group match.

Grab fantastic odds of 6/1 on England to beat Italy at the World Cup 2014 thanks to Enhanced Odds campaign running with the highly rated bookmaker William Hill.

This is an offer open for new customers only, and with England trading at the regular price of 2/1 to beat the Italians on Saturday, then this promotion offers tremendous value.

England v Italy

Italy, four times World Champions and once European Champions, always perform well at major tournaments ans Brazil 2014 will be no different. However, they are traditionally slow starters and tend to struggle through their first match or two before hitting their stride once more pressure to succeed is enforced. Indeed, they failed to emerge from their group at the last World Cup in South Africa. They have mighty experience all over the pitch and came through their qualifying campaign without defeat. Mario Balotelli is sure to lead the line tonight and will defintely cause some problems for the England defence. But this could be considered one of Italy’s weakest tournament squad in quite some time and they are susceptible to being exposed.

England travel to Brazil with rather less pressure than is normally placed on them by their national media. There is a nice blend of experience and youth with plenty of exciting players blessed with an abundance of pace throughout the squad. One major negative is the absence of a player who could compete for the title of the world’s best player alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. England came through their qualifying round relatively comfortably scoring plenty of goals while conceding just four. If the starting XI picked by Roy Hodgson gels, then England will give Italy plenty to worry about.

The odds on England to beat Italy are currently 2/1

The Second Test of England v New Zealand rugby betting roars into action early on Saturday morning. The first test was an absolute thriller, with England looking as if they were going to hang on, only to be undone by a late try by the All Blacks. There was a tremendous amount of praise heaped on the English though, who were without so many of their regular starters. England were missing eight regulars who had started their final 2014 Six Nations match.

But some of the cavalry will be back for this one and after pushing New Zealand so close, giving them a huge fright, there is big optimism that England will be able to deliver. This is going to be one of the biggest test thats that Stuart Lancaster’s England will have faced. There is expectancy for them to go one better with the likes of Billy Vunipola, Tom Wood and Owen Farrell coming back into the starting line up.

But at the end of the day, England are 1-0 down in the three test series and they still face overwhelming odds to put a win on the board. While England have been tinkering with their lineup, which includes moving Manu Tuilagi over to the wing, as expected, New Zealand have stuck with the same starting fifteen.

The All Blacks are now undefeated in their last six home matches against England, and the Kiwis extended their overall unbeaten record on home soil to a massive 30 matches. They are also unbeaten in their last 13 international matches, their last loss coming at Twickenham against england back in 2012.

The two nations have met 37 times now, and it is the All Blacks who hold a massive 29-7 lead. England have won just one of their last twelve meetings with the All Blacks. New Zealand have averaged almost 24 points per game against England, while the English have averaged 13 points per game against New Zealand.

England are heavy 5/1 underdogs for the match, despite their massive efforts last week and being able to field a stronger starting fifteen this week. New Zealand are at 1/8 but the handicap line has narrowed considerably from last week’s match, with England +14 at even money with Paddy Power.

Online betting site Paddy Power are running coverage on all losing try scorer bets for England v New Zealand rugby betting. If a forward scores the first try of the game, than the bookmaker will refund losing stakes on all try scorer bets for that match placed before kick off. This offer applies to 1st try scorer, last try scorer, 1st team try scorer, anytime try scorer,1st tryscorer insurebet, to score two or more tries and to score three or more tries.

Online betting site Paddy Power are running promotion for England v Honduras betting, as the Three Lions head into their final World Cup 2014 warm up match. Roy Hodgson will probably be putting out his strongest side possible, to gauge final form ahead of taking on Italy in their group opener in Manaus on June 14th.

If Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard scores a goal at anytime in the match, then Paddy Power will refund lost bets on the First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct score and Scorecast single markets with a free bet.

England v Honduras Odds at Paddy Power:
England 2/5, Draw 3/1, Honduras 7/1

England’s second string of players were frustrated and unconvincing in a 2-2 draw against Ecuador during midweek, with massive defensive issues plaguing the Three Lions. Will their strongest back line be able to keep out what is a very average looking Honduras side? Will the young England attack be able to exploit their opponents defence, which has shipped sixteen goals in their last six matches?

England have won nine and are unbeaten in their last 10 clashes against CONCACAF nations. They are also unbeaten in their last eight international friendly matches on neutral ground (this one being played again in Miami. So one final chance for England players to impress the boss, and the biggest thing that England fans will want to see is them record a clean sheet win, just for a boost of confidence in their defence ahead of Brazil 2014.

England v Honduras Betting Tips:
One final chance for players to press for a starting place against Italy on June 14th at the World Cup. Who will make it? Wayne Rooney aside, probably not any of the starters against Ecuador as Roy Hodgson fielded a side of fringe players. Perhaps Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ross Barkley may have a sniff after being the only ones to give the gaffer something to think about. The game, while the result was disappointing, helped Hodgson see who shouldn’t be staring against the Italians. So more question marks over the England defence, even though it was a makeshift one with James Milner at right back. But their main starting back four came under scrutiny after giving up big chances in their 3-0 win over Peru recently.

Far more pleasing is the crop of attacking young players, with Ross Barkley, Adam Lallana and the energy from the likes of Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere producing some optimism. There should be more than enough in the starting ranks, in terms of creativity and power to post a relatively comfortable win over Honduras. Whether that will come with a clean sheet or not, even with the main back four back in business, will remain to be seen. Truthfully, a clean sheet against the Central Americans shouldn’t be too difficult. Wayne Rooney and Rickie Lambert netted against Ecuador are trading at Even Money and 7/4 respectively in the anytime goalscorer market against Honduras, but Daniel Sturridge will be back in the picture too.

This should provide England with some great experience for when they have to handle Costa Rica in their final match in Group D at the World Cup. This is the first meeting between the two nations and England are only 6/5 to win with a clean sheet in tow in this one, which speaks volumes about how poor that they are at the back. The game is trading at 4/5 to go under 2.5 goals as well. While England should win this comfortably, Honduras are only ranked two places below Ecuador in the FIFA World Rankings at 31st. Honduras face Switzerland, France and Ecuador in Group E at the World Cup, and they are rank outsiders to qualify. Honduras haven’t gone well in their warm up, suffering losses against Turkey and Israel in their last two matches, and England should have the chance to post a confidence-building victory.

Prediction
Heavy favourites are the Three Lions to post the victory here, but aren’t great value in the outright market at all. Can you trust England’s defence for a clean sheet win? It may be better to drift on over to the anytime goalscorer market where Wayne Rooney is even money to build on his scrappy goal against Ecuador.

England v Ecuador Betting Preview
England move on to Miami now in their World Cup 2014 preparations as they face up against more South American opposition. After taking a 3-0 win over Peru on Saturday, they face off against Ecuador, who are also heading to Brazil. Can the English deliver on their favouritism in convincing fashion?

England v Ecuador Betting Tips:
The Three Lions did enough at Wembley against Peru to give themselves a good platform to work off in their build up to the World Cup. After the shutdown of the domestic seasons, it naturally took players a while to get into their stride against Peru, and the only real thing of note in the first half was Daniel Sturridge’s fine strike from distance. However the second half was much better, with Adam Lallana pulling creative strings nicely, and they pushed on well. However they did give up far too many easy chances at the back, and against better opposition, they would have been severely punished more likely than not. So it all still points to England’s strengths being in attack, because they look vulnerable at the back. Still, that’s back to back clean sheets now, the Peru result following a 1-0 win over Denmark.

Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge is trading as even money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for the game against Ecuador, while Wayne Rooney, who was pretty anonymous against Peru in his first game back after injury, is 5/4 to net at any time. Liverpool-bound Rickie Lambert is a 7/4 shot. There could be changes from the starting eleven which faced Peru. England should be winning matches like this, and they are still holding their ground in the outright World Cup winner market as 28/1 shots. The Three Lions are still hanging back at 8/13 to get out of Group D against Italy and Uruguay. Ecuador will be providing more South American opposition, and on top of the game against Peru, it should give England good experience for when they face Central Americans Costa Rica in their final group match at the World Cup. England have played two and won two against Ecuador before, taking a 2-0 victory in their first meeting in 1970 and then a 1-0 triumph at the 2006 World Cup in the round of sixteen.

What are we going to see in Ecuador? Well, that’s not too clear after producing some real mixed results. They posted a crazy 4-3 win over Australia back in March, and then recorded a good 1-1 draw away in Holland. But then it all came crashing down when they lost against Mexico 3-1 at the end of May. Their strengths are in their defence, and it was part of them holding on to fourth spot in the CON BEMOL qualification zone, edging out Uruguay. Of the five nations from the CONMEBOL zone who had to qualify for the World Cup, they were the lowest scorers, which says a lot about the strength of their defence. That having been said, they have conceded in each of their last three games, so England should open them up. Manchester United’s Antonio Valencia is their main man, but there’s not a lot of power up top. Ecuador will be facing Switzerland, France and Honduras in Group E at the World Cup, where they are 20/19 third favourites to qualify.

Prediction
England should be driving on here with some confidence because this is a perfectly winnable match for them if they apply themselves correctly. Yes, friendly matches can get disrupted with flow because of changes, but the Three Lions should bank a win in what is likely to be their toughest of their three warm up matches. Straight forward, England to win.

England v Peru Betting Preview
Three matches to go now for Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions before the start of the 2014 World Cup. This will be their Wembley send off too, as their two friendly matches following this against Ecuador and Honduras will be played in Miami. With two losses in their last three Wembley friendly matches, England really need to start getting some momentum behind them.

England v Peru Betting Tips:
There is the likelihood, that while many subs will be used throughout the match, something close to what England’s starting eleven will be against Italy in Manaus on June 14th should be sent out by Hodgson at Wembley on Saturday. After rounding off their World Cup qualification duties, England lost back to back friendly matches at Wembley against Chile and Germany, which really put a big dampener on their spirits ahead of Brazil 2014, but there is time to make amends. They sort of did, at least result-wise, in a 1-0 win over Denmark in their last friendly. But the Three Lions have now only scored one goal in their last three games. That seriously need to be fixed. Fingers can be pointed at the defense too, as they have only managed one clean sheet in their last six friendly games at Wembley.

Going forward, just two of England’s last nine international goals have been scored in the first half of matches. So expect another relatively slow start from them. It could actually lean punters towards a Draw/England Half Time/Full Time wager in this one at a price of 3/1. However, England’s form in warm up matches ahead of internal tournaments has been pretty good. They have won their last six international friendlies which have been direct warm-up matches ahead of an international tournament. The last time that they lost a tournament warm-up match was back in in 1990 against Uruguay. Since then, England have an unbeaten W14 D8 record in said warm-up type matches.

In the anytime goalscorer market for England v Peru betting, Wayne Rooney is trading as 4/6 favourite. The Manchester United man has netted more goals for his country since Roy Hodgson took over, than anyone else (8). Both Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert are even money, which suggests that England should get the opportunity to get a few goals on the board in this one. They should, and therefore going over 2.5 goals for a price of 4/6 should be something of a certainty if England have any kind of ambitions about getting out the group stage.

While England have won just one of their last five against South American nations, Peru haven’t won an international game for almost a year now. Since their last win in 2013 against Ecuador, Peru have posted a D2 L4 record. They aren’t a threat going forward, but will present England with a test of putting out a stubborn defence to break down, as they have conceded just one goal in their last seven international friendlies, their last two ending in 0-0 draws against Mexico and South Korea.

Prediction
This is the type of opposition (similar to Costa Rica who they’ll face in Group D) which England should take full control of. At home, they should have all the initiative in this game, and as Peru aren’t going to offer much going forward, England should have the crop of players to break through, even if it takes a while. Shoot for the Three Lions to win to nil at even money.

Maracana (Brazil)

Along with popular World Cup prediction markets such as Name The Finalists, there is also some interesting wagers to weigh up in the to reach the World Cup final betting market. There are different ways to look at who is going to make it to the showcase final match on July 13th in Rio at the famous Maracana. The Name the Finalist market is the most popular of these and taking a look in there at the ante post prices, the shortest price option is a big South American clash of Brazil/Argentina, an option which is trading at 9/1 with William Hill.

Other options are Brazil/Spain, Argentina/Germany and then you get into unlikely territory of Brazil/Germany. The way to look at this is the separation of the sides in the knockout stage, if the favourites in their groups all prevail. If the big four of Brazil, Germany, Argentina and Spain all win their groups, then they will separate out into Brazil and Germany in one half, with Argentina and Spain in the other. So they are the semi finals which are most likely to be on the cards, barring any upsets along the way of course.

So immediately you can see who the four favourites are to return value in the to reach the World Cup final betting market. This is the same in the outright winner market of course, where hosts Brazil are strong 3/1 favourites, followed Argentina and Germany at 5/1 and the reigning champions Spain all the way out at 7/1 to remain on top of the world. But if you want to get down to more specifics, then can you look at each of the individual 32 teams.

England for example are massive 16/1 shots to reach the final of Brazil 2014, France are at 9/1, while a lot of people’s favourite dark horse shots Belgium are trading at a price of 7/1 and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal are 12/1 shots to make it all the way to Rio on July 13th. They are some of the better priced options that punters will be looking to, while the individual odds on the big four are Germay at 9/4, Argentina at 5/2, Spain at 7/2 and Brazil at 6/4.

Pretty much there is some great value in backing any of the big guns in the to reach the World Cup final betting market.

 

For how long can England keep the fans interested at Brazil 2014?
Odds on England to win World Cup 2014

 

If you are a little unsure of just who would win out in the projected Brazil v Germany and Spain v Argentina semi final matches in World Cup 2014 betting, then you could take a dip into the to reach the semi final betting market. There Brazil and Argentina are heavy 5/6 favourites, with Germany at Even money and Spain at 11/8. This is where a dark horse shot may come in more, with France at 4/1 and the Netherlands, who could be the ones to disrupt Spain in the group stage, are at 9/2. Italy are 4/1 shots to make it to the final four, while England are 5/1 shots.

So naturally the best value is going to be found on the big guns in the field, the Brazil’s and Argentina’s of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Beyond that you are looking at the dark horse shots, those tempting propositions which you can sort of plot a route to the final for, but those who would also be punching above their weight a bit if they made it just to the final four. Fascinating options all around, but it is a World Cup 2014 betting market which offers a lot of positive value, even on the outright favourites.


24th April 2014 / Lee A Jackson - Category: World Cup 2014 Betting

Roy Hodgson

There is always plenty of speculation about who will make a World Cup squad. England boss Roy Hodgson is charged with the task of narrowing down all of his option to just 23 players. Most of the squad can pretty much be pencilled in, as you know that Hodgson is going to be picking certain bankers like Joe Hart, Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney. However, this time around there is not so much of a focus on just leaning towards loyalty of the experienced players, because there are some great young talents on the fringe who would deserve to head to Brazil on merit.

There is a whole clutch of players at very short odds in England World Cup Squad betting 2014. Among the heavy odds on favourites are the aforementioned Hart, Rooney and Gerrard, and they are joined by Leighton Baines, Daniel Sturridge and Gary Cahill. Out of the entire possibilities, they are the overwhelming bankers to make it to the final 23 in England’s 2014 World Cup squad. However, because they are bankers, there’s not a lot of value around in them for odds around the 1/25 mark.

Even Jack Wilshere, Adam Lallana and Danny Welbeck don’t offer enough value to really get wagers down on, as they are all around the 1/10 mark. So the most value on offer can be found around the mark of Even money options. That is where the big value is going to be found. Who is hovering around there? The likes of John Ruddy, Rickie Lambert and Andy Carroll. West Ham’s Andy Carroll has had a stop start season, but has shown glimpses since coming back from injury who value he can be in the air and disrupting defences.

Southampton’s Rickie Lambert has a bit more versatility though and has been called upon already by Hodgson. Sunderland’s Adam Johnson is another interesting name, because at the start of 2014 he was on fire for the Black Cats. Direct running in opening up defences along with a sharp eye for goal saw his England stock rise, but he is a long 10/1 shot now to make it into the final 23, and goes up against competition like Andros Townsend and Raheem Sterling for wide positions, even the experience of Aaron Lennon at 3/1 may trump him.

Priced as perhaps a great long shot will be left back Luke Shaw is trading at 2/1 and value odds in England World Cup Squad betting 2014. The starting left back role is likely to be handed to Leighton Baines, so will Hodgson bring along Luke Shaw for squad experience over Chelsea’s Ashley Cole (1/4) who has barely put in any playing time for his club this season? Shaw looks to be one of the best value bets in England World Cup squad betting. Baines is 1/2 to start the opening match at left back, with Cole at 15/8 and any other player at 8/1.

At the end of the day, it isn’t going to be a squad filled with that many surprises. There is probably going to be a nod towards the future with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Adam Lallana and Ross Barkley in the mix. There are alternative markets that you can also look at, for example there is odds of 11/10 at Ladbrokes for Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge, Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson to all make the squad. You can take 6/1 on youngsters Like Shaw, Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to make the squad. That is the same price as Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Phil JOhns, Michael Carrick, Chris Smalling and Tom Cleverley all to make it onto the plane to Brazil.

World Cup 2014 Betting

How are England to win World Cup 2014 odds shaping up? Well the Three Lions will be riding in on a cloud of optimism as opposed to harbouring realistic chances of lifting the title. England fans are still having a prolonged wait to see if they can ever follow up on that 1966 success but they looking to be nothing more than a long shot in this one.

Four years ago in South Africa, England were trading pretty strongly after being drawn in an easy group, but they completely fluffed their lines then under Fabio Capello, stuttered through to the last sixteen in second place and were subsequently crushed by Germany and sent home in embarrassment.

But they are back for another shot and trading at much longer odds than they were at South Africa 2014. With Bet365 having priced them up as 33/1 shots to lift the title at Brazil 2014, that is a big gap to the short priced, proven quality of the likes of Brazil and Spain in the outright winner market.

But maybe this time around, England will actually be helped by the fact that there is very little expectation riding on their shoulders. Having been drawn in a tough, competitive group, and unlikely to find the conditions and heat in Brazil easy going, Roy Hodgson’s men having nothing to lose really.

England did put on a final flourish to win their qualification group and the boss did try to look more towards the youth and future of the country, and play attacking football at the same time. Their big hope again up front will be Wayne Rooney, who has yet to really deliver to his country when it matters the most in international tournaments. Can the United man carry the weight of the nation on his shoulders and lead the Three Lions on an unexpectedly deep run?

Group Stage
A tough, tough draw for England in having to go up against Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica. England open against Italy in what is going to be a massive match. A loss there and there is going to be huge ground to make up. England are third favourites out of the four to actually win Group D at a price of 5/2 and when you consider that, it’s not hard to see why the bookmakers have England to win World Cup 2014 odds so far out at 33/1.

The Three Lions are only 4/6 third favourites to qualify from their group behind the joint favourites Italy and Uruguay, but there is not total reason for doom and gloom. The thing here is to look at the silver lining. If England fight their way out of this tough group, then the confidence that they would get from that would be huge. That would be a great wave of momentum behind them in overcoming the odds there and with anyone from Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan waiting in the next round, it wouldn’t be that difficult of a path to the quarter finals.

Key players
Wayne Rooney, it has to be. He always gets talked about at this stage, but he hasn’t been there for his country when they have looked to him in situations like this. The England man is all the way out at a price of 50/1 in the Top Goalscorer market for World Cup 2014 betting odds and that say a lot about England’s overall chances at the tournament. So it actually may be that Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge is the key forward, his speed creating the space for Rooney to work in. It could be a key partnership.

The other key England player is going to be Chelsea’s Gary Cahill. He has grown and grown and frankly, with England not having a great back line, the more composed and controlled he is, the better off the Three Lions will be. He has the capacity to be England’s rock at the back and he has to put himself on the line and take responsibility there. England haven’t had anyone like that back there since John Terry and boy do they need one.

Prediction
Tough to argue with the England to win World Cup 2014 odds being so long. It’s actually not a horrendous price and other bookmakers have them in shorter at around 25/1. But if you are going to have a go one them, grab the biggest price you can. No-one realistically is expecting anything more than a quarter final place for England, that would be a great triumph for them. It could be worth looking at a stage of elimination bet for England and if they make it out of the group then a Quarter Final stage exit at a price of 5/1 looks pretty appealing.
