Germany v England Betting Preview

Big game for England and their momentum ahead of Euro 2016. After coming through a pretty easy qualification campaign to reach the finals, they have already lost a friendly against the reigning European Champions Spain in their warm ups and now face the World Champions in Berlin. Can the England youngsters take a great confidence-building win on the road on Saturday and confirm themselves as one of the front runners for the Euro 2016 title, or will the Germans show their class and power?

This game is covered by the Betfred Double Delight/Hat Trick Heaven promotion. Back a correct first goalscorer in the game and if that player then goes on to score a second in the game you will be paid out at double the odds. If he nets a third then that is treble the goalscorer odds for you!

Germany v England Betting Tips

England could be in with a great shot of winning Euro 2016, at least that is what Germany boss Joachim Low seems to think as he has pegged the Three Lions as one of the front runners for the summer. Germany have won the last two matches played against England, the most forgettable one of those being the World Cup 2010 clash when England limped out of the tournament 4-1 and put fans out of their misery. The last time the two old rivals played was in 2013 which was an international friendly meeting that Germany won 1-0. England didn’t manage to get a shot on target during that match. Germany, to some surprise, have lost two of their last three games played. One of them was in Ireland at the end of the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign and then they took a loss against France in a friendly last November, on the night of the Paris attacks.

But at home, they have won their last two games, beating Georgia and Poland on home soil. But both of those games highlighted some issues that Germany have at the back. Germany haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last five games and only on one occasion in the last year have they done so, which was against Gibraltar. So not great from them at the back that’s for sure so England should have some chances out in Berlin on Saturday. Germany are a strong attacking side though of course and have more genuine scoring potential than England do. They have Thomas Muller for starters who is 6/5 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Mario Gomez at 7/5 and Marco Reus at 2/1 along with Kevin Volland and Andre Schurrle.

England have won two of their last five games against the Germans. Their last win came on their last visit to Germany which was for a 2008 friendly, when John Terry scored a late winner in a 2-1 win. England had an easy time of things in Euro 2016 qualification and since then, they lost 2-0 against Spain in a friendly but then beat France by the same scoreline, which was hard to read because of it being such an emotional night in the first game for the French after the Paris attacks. England are a team in form having won five of their last six played then (L1) and then took a clean sheet in each of the five wins in that sequence. Tottenham’s Harry Kane is an 11/4 anytime goalscorer for the game and with the German defence leaking goals at the moment it has to be worth going over 2.5 goals for a price of 10/11 with Betfred.

Germany v England Betting Odds

Germany 8/13, Draw 11/4, England 9/2

Germany v England Predictions

Hard to say which way this one will swing because Germany are having a few issues at the back whereas England have been pretty sound. Germany have more firepower than England do so it all could a balance out to a draw at the end of the day. It’s well worth having a punt on both teams to score though. A 1-1 Correct Score may have appeal at 6/1.

Can England deliver the Grand Slam? They have already won the Six Nations title this season thanks to France losing against Scotland last weekend. England have posted four wins from four on their campaign under Eddie Jones and are on the brink of landing the big one, the Grand Slam. The last time that England did that was back in 2003 so it has been a long, barren spell.

Now France are the only thing standing between themselves and the Grand Slam in the Six Nations. However, the last five times they have been within touching distance of the Grand Slam title, they have failed to deliver and all of those occasions were away from Twickenham. So recent history isn’t on their side, but they have the form going against France and have looked head and shoulders the best team in this season’s competition.

England though have lost three of their last four visits to Paris to take on the French, but the losing margin has been within three points in each of those three defeats. It’s not too likely that France will be able to keep it that closer this time around. Back at twickenham last year, England crushed the French and they are rightly running as odds on shots to go out and take the win on the weekend against Les Bleus.

France haven’t been at the races at all in this season’s competitions. Under new coach Guy Noves they have yet to establish any kind of style or direction in which they want to go. That’s in stark contrast to Eddie Jones who has England improving in all departments and going out with a clear plan of clearing ball quickly and getting it through the hands. France really should have lost against Italy, struggled past Ireland then lost in Wales and were terrible against Scotland last time out in defeat, looking directionless.

England have taken wins in seven of their last nine against France, but both of the losses in that sequence were in Paris. Meetings between the two in France have been tight affair, with six of the last eight being settled by a margin of seven points or less. Online betting site Paddy Power have an France +8 handicap at even money.

This will be the 102nd meeting between the two nations, with England holding a 55-39 head to head lead. England have averaged 15.7 points per game against France, while the French have averaged 12.5 points per game against England, so yes, tight margins. England have won four of  the last six meetings between the two side, but have lost on their last two trips to Paris. England are 1/3 for the win, with France at 13/5 and the draw at 28/1.

Online betting site Paddy Power have a great promotion running for France v England Six Nations betting. You will get double your winning odds on the first tryscorer market if your selection opens the scoring and then runs in another try at any point in the game. The maximum stake on the offer is £25.

This is pretty much going to be the Championship decider then, the crucial battle between the top two in the RBS Six Nations 2016. England lead the way in the Championship with six points and Wales just the point behind. England have to take on France in their final match of this season’s Six Nations while Wales’s get to go against France. So a win for England would all but wrap up the title for Eddie Jones in his first tournament in charge of the English.

There has already been a massive war of words between England and Wales head of the game, with Eddie Jones citing that Wales scrummage illegally, while naturally the Welsh have been responding with their own claims of unfair play by the English. It just adds a nice bit of extra spice to the game at Twickenham. England still have a shot at the Triple Crown and the Grand Slam of course if they continue their winning streak on Saturday.

They put in a controlled performance against Ireland last time out at Twickenham, putting a 21-10 win on the board against the reigning champions. England will be going into the game of course with some revenge on their mind. They looked in control against the Welsh at Twickenham in their Rugby World Cup fixture against Welsh but failed to press home their advantage and allowed Wales to get back in the game and record a win, which helped pushed England out of the tournament which they were hosting. England are price of 1/2 with Boylesports to make amends with a win on Saturday.

That has actually been two wins for Wales in their last three visits to Twickenham. That prompted big changes at the top and the eventual appointment of Eddie Jones. England have won their last 10 home matches in the RBS Six Nations since losing against Wales back in February 2012. If they can beat the Welsh on Saturday then they would land their 25th Triple Crown title. England have beaten Wales in their last two Six Nations meeting and are out to try and make it three in a row against them for the first time since back in 2004.

Wales can take full control of the Championship with another win at Twickenham on Saturday. That would put them one point clear at the top of the table with a game to come against Italy. Wales are running on a seven match unbeaten streak in the Six Nations and have taken a draw against Italy and wins over Scotland and Ireland so far in this campaign. So a win for them gives them the Triple Crown too and are shooting for their fourth Six Nations title since Warren Gatland took charge back in 2008. Wales are 2/1 to land the victory at Twickenham.

There have been 127 international matches between these two and England narrowly lead the head to head 58-57. It has, by and large, been Wales on top in recent meetings, the Welsh having won four of the last six against England but they will be taking on an England side who look a bit more streetwise under Eddie Jones than when the two met at the World Cup last year. England have averaged 13.21 points per game against Wales while the Welsh have averaged 11.76 points against England.

That leaves a narrow points margin for a handicap and that is what Boylesports have gone with. An England -5 handicap will return a price of even money with Boylesports. England’s Anthony Watson has ran in eight tries in his last ten games and is running at a price of 9/4 in the Anytime Try Scorer market, with Wales’ George North at 5/2.

What a cracker of a game it should be at Murrayfield on Saturday. It is a big season of change for England with new head coach Eddie Jones coming in and Dylan Hartley taking over the captaincy from Chris Robshaw. It’s a new era for England and they open it with a really tough game at Murrayfield, where they know the Scots will be keen to stop them getting off to a strong start in the campaign.

England go with Danny Care at scrum half over Ben Youngs while Joe Marler has come into the starting fifteen ahead of Mako Vunipola. The England set up is one of young and experience according to Jones as they go in search of a Calcutta Cup defence, the trophy they have held since back in 2009 over Scotland. There is a rich vein of experience running through the England side and that appears to be the right way to go in order to take on the challenge of the Scots on the road.

Scotland will be out to prove that they have learned from recent campaigns and not only that have developed a stronger game to compete for the Six Nations crown. There appears to be a lot of energy running through the Scottish came and not only that, their back row appears to have plenty of versatility to adapt and switch between the territorial and attacking game. But of course it all starts up front for them and that is where they have to get at England and stop the visitors getting a foothold in the game.

There have been 133 previous encounters between England and Scotland and it is the English who hold a 73-42 head to head lead. England have won the last six matches in a row over Scotland and are unbeaten in eight against them (W7 D1). The last time that England went to Murrayfield they came away with a 20-0 victory in February 2014. England have averaged 11.92 points per game against Scotland while the Scots in return have averaged 8.71 points per game against the English.

That leaves you with a points difference of 3.21 on average per game for England over Scotland. You can imagine that the scoreline is going to be pretty tight but it could be worth stretching out to an England -5 Handicap for a price of even money with online betting site Boylesports.

Boylesports are running a promotion for Scotland v England Six Nations Rugby betting. If the very first try of the match is not converted, then they will refund losing stakes on the first tryscorer market for the game. The refunds will come back a sa free bet and this offer applies to all of the Six Nations rugby matches this weekend.

Euro 2016 Betting

Tottenham’s young midfielder Dele Alli is all the rage at the moment. The young Spurs star netted in a 1-1 draw against Everton on the weekend to raise his stock even further. He is now a 3/1 shot at online betting site Paddy Power to be named the PFA Young Player of the Year. His main competition in the market though is Golden Boot chaser Romelu Lukaku at a price of 12/5 favourite.

But it is towards next summer that piques the most interest about Alli. The nineteen year old as ened so much praise this season that he is a 2/1 quote to start England’s first game at Euro 2016. England open their campaign against Russia on Saturday, June 11th.

Alli has played for England a the U17, U18, U19 and the U21 levels and has earned four caps so far for the full squad. He of course netted a brilliant long-distance effort in a 2-0 win over France in November 2015. It’s been a rapid rise for him having won the 2014/15 Football league Young Player of the Year Award and a spot in the PFA Football League One Team of the Year as well. Twelve months ago he was being awarded the FootbalL League One Player of the Month Award for January 2015.

Will he be lining up for England at Euro 2016? He is a 4/11 odds on price to make the squad.

5th January 2016 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Euro 2016 Betting

Euro 2016 Betting

The draw for the Euro 2016 group stage was made on Saturday, December 12th and now nations can start preparing properly as they know who they will be facing, when they will be facing them and where they will be facing their group opponents.

Euro 2016 is hosted by France and will be played across ten different locations from Lille and Lens in the north through to the exotic play grounds of Nice and Marseille on the Mediterranean coast in the south. The final itself, what will be the 51st match of the competition, will be played at the Stade de France, Saint Denis and that is where the action all starts as well, when host nation France take on Romania in the tournament opener on June 10th.

There are six groups of four teams as the tournament has expanded into twenty-four competitors for the first time ever. That means of course that there is an extra game needing to be won on the path to success for whoever is crowned European champions at the end of the campaign. The top two from each Euro 2016 group will move through to the group stage automatically, while the four best third-placed teams will make their way through to the round of sixteen.

So there’s a pretty good chance of getting through of course with only eight nations dropping out after the group stage.

Euro 2016 Group Draw 2016

Euro 2016 Group A

France, Romania, Albania and Switzerland

It wasn’t a bad draw for the hosts France at all here. It will be a shocker if they didn’t get out of this one. The French are 1/2 favourites to move out of their group as winners and it should be a race for second place behind them. Switzerland are arguably their biggest threat in the Group A and frankly how easily England handled them in the qualifiers, even that shouldn’t be too much for them to handle. Albania, who are at their first major finals are 28/1 outside shots to shock everyone and win the group. Romania aren’t likely to offer a lot of opposition and it should be between them and Albania for third.

Euro 2016 Group B

England, Russia, Wales, Slovakia

England went as the top seeds in Group B and then pulled out Wales as the second team in their group to face. Russia and Slovakia fill in the holes. Wales weren’t keen on drawing England, at least boss Chris Coleman wasn’t because of the distractions over the Battle of Britain which it will be labelled as. That will be the second game in the group for both. Russia are a tricky side to handle and are the clear dark horses in the group, even though they finished a long way behind Austria in qualifying. But gutsy points against Sweden in qualifying helped them through, they should join England in the next round. Wales may have to grab a point against one of them on top of a win over Slovakia to edge through. England are 5/4 to top the group with Russia at 4/1, while Wales are even money to qualify.

Euro 2016 Group C

Germany, Ukraine, Poland, Northern Ireland

Germany head up the seeds in Group C and they get a mouthwatering clash against Poland. The two were together in qualifying for the finals and the Poles managed to earn a win against die Mannschaft. Because of the goals of Robert Lewandowski, the Poles will carry a threat and should qualify easily from the group. The Ukraine aren’t a bad side, in a bit of a transition though and are likely to earn third spot ahead of Northern Ireland. The Irish didn’t get a great draw here at all in the finals after all their hard worth through qualifying. Tough, draw and they are a the group outsiders with Germany at 6/11 to win the group.

Euro 2016 Group D

Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey, Croatia

This is one of those major tournament groups which on paper looks as if it will be a bit of a straight forward dull affair with double reigning champions Spain cruising to top spot. They are 6/5 to do so, but there are some tricky challenges coming in from Croatia, who are a technically gifted side and the Czech Republic who topped their qualification group over the likes of Holland and Turkey. The Czech’s will get reunited with Turkey in the group but they aren’t a defensively sound unit so that will put their qualification hopes at risk. The Spaniards should qualify easily enough but there could be an entertaining battle for positions in the group nonetheless because of defensive weakness amongst the other nations. It could be one of the more intense, tightly contested groups.

Euro 2016 Group E

Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Sweden

The Republic of Ireland probably won’t be too disappointed with their draw. They are trading at 23/10 to qualify. On the surface of things, getting drawn in a group alongside Italy and Sweden would seem a pretty tough thing, but there’s not much for the Irish to be afraid of here. Yes, the game against Belgium is going to be their toughest and the Red Devils are likely to deliver on their 13/10 favouritism to top the group, but the Italy aren’t a big threat and can be picked off and if you keep Zlatan Ibrahimovic quiet then you always have a chance against the Swedes. Really right group in this one with Italy at 2/5 and Sweden at 6/4 to qualify.

Euro 2016 Group F

Portugal, Iceland, Austria, Hungary

Portugal are top seeds in Euro 2016 Group F and they are 6/5 to finish as winners. They had such an easy group in qualifying though and made hard work of it that it may be worth looking towards Austria to pull off a group win at 11/4. The Austrians were the surprise package of qualifying, their positive play landing them top place in their qualifying group over Russia and Sweden. They should join Portugal in the next round leaving a scrap between Iceland and Hungary for the spoils of third. Not much to choose between them, but Iceland turned in some impressive performances in their tough qualification group. You can see a lot drawn matches being played out in this group.

Euro 2016 Outright Winner Odds

Germany are running as 10/3 outright favourites for Euro 2016 with host nation France at 11/4 behind them. Reigning European Champions Spain are 9/2 and that makes up the numbers for nations currently priced under double figure in Euro 2016 outright betting.

Germany 10/3, France 11/4, Spain 9/2, England 10/1, Belgium 12/1, Portugal 16/1, Italy 20/1, Croatia 25/1, Austria 33/1, 66/1 bar

Euro 2016 Top Goalscorer Odds

There will be a dazzling array of attacking talent on show at Euro 2016 and it is usually whoever gets off to the quickest start will get closest to the Golden Boot. Another key factor is looking at a player on a team who is likely to go deep in the contest. The brilliant Thomas Muller is 6/1 early favourite in the Euro 2016 Top Goalscorer market, following by the scoring talent of Cristiano Ronaldo at 7/1. Surprisingly on France’s Antoine Griezmann comes in at 8/1 in single figures then leading the chasing pack is Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku at 12/1, Olivier Giroud at 14/1 and Poland’s Robert Lewandowski at 16/1. At Euro 2012 six players (including Ronaldo) finished with 3 goals each as top scorers. England’s Wayne Rooney is a massive 40/1 poke, with Harry Kane shorter at 33/1.

England v France Betting Preview

Can England put on a better show than they did in Alicante on the weekend in a 2-0 loss against Spain? The Three Lions were nowhere near the level of the Spaniards in terms of quality in area and for some reason Roy Hodgson decided to play a counter attacking game instead of using the friendly to be just a little bit braver. France are in fantastic form and Les Bleus will give England a pretty stern test at Wembley in what is likely to be an emotional evening.

You can claim free in-play wagers at online betting site Paddy Power for England v France international friendly betting on Tuesday. Just head to the bookmaker and place £20 pre match and in return you will get £10 worth of free bets to use in-play during the match! This is a fantastic offer and it also applies to Ireland v Bosnia Euro 2016 play-off match as well!

England v France Betting Tips

This will be a highly emotional night for players and fans alike and really the game and the outcome of it is unimportant. While it is important to carry on it’s hard to gauge just where heads will be at on the pitch. France are in decent form though, which includes their 2-0 win over Germany in Paris on Saturday which was overshadowed by the tragic events there of course. Les Bleus have now won their last five international matches (all friendly matches because of hosting Euro 2016). They have scored at least two goals in four of their last five games played.

During that spell of five games, they have conceded only two goals as well. On top of that, France have triumphed on their last two visits to England as well for friendly matches and France overall are unbeaten in their last six against the Three Lions (competitive and friendly). The two goalscorers for France on the weekend Olivier Giroud and Andre-Pierre Gignac are both 2/1 options in the anytime goalscorer market for England v France betting. France showed a lot of quality in the victory over Germany and will have a lot of appeal to win the European Championships.

In stark contrast to France’s performance on the weekend, England were outclassed heavily by Spain in Alicante. There just wasn’t any tactical bravery by Roy Hodgson, as England looked to just counter attack. But their passing and ball retention was atrocious and was a real wake up call after such an easy qualification campaign. So their 17 match unbeaten streak has gone and they haven’t taken a win over France since back in 1997. Both teams have scored in four of the last six clashes, so that may be worth a punt at even money with Paddy Power. Wayne Rooney is England’s shortest priced goalscorer option at 11/5 with the industrious Harry Kane at 7/4.

England v France Betting Odds

England 8/5, France 17/10, Draw 9/4

England v France Predictions

Whatever is on the scoreboard at the end of 90 minutes isn’t going to matter or be remembered. If you are solely focusing on the football then France are the better of the two sides at the moment and the better value for the win. If this is nothing more than a scoreless draw then no-one is going to complain.

Spain v England Betting Preview

The Three Lions can actually get to test themselves against some good opposition. After cruising to ten twins from ten in their easy Euro 2016 qualification group, England will pit their wits on the road against the reigning European champions. Both sides can boast some pretty good form, but will England be able to replicate their positive form when they take on one of the elite sides in the world? This may answer a few questions about England’s real current status.

Online betting site Boylesports are focusing on Jamie Vardy for a Spain v England promotion. The bookmaker will refund all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, anytime goalscorer, scorecast and correct score bets on the fixture if Jamie Vardy scores first. The maximum stake refunded is £25. Register an account with Boylesports and earn up to £50 worth of free bets!

Spain v England Betting Tips

How will the Three Lions measure up in this contest? England are on a great winning streak of five matches and they have gone unbeaten across their last fifteen played, which includes the ten wins which they picked up during their perfect Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. Of course, they didn’t face any one of Spain’s quality through that and simply didn’t get tested by any of their opposition there. England boss Roy Hodgson has some injury issues to compensate for as his side defends its long unbeaten streak against Spain and then France. Phil Jagielka, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Ings are all out through injury. Only five players in the squad have won more than the 18 caps that Raheem Sterling has won for his country.

So not a great deal of experience around, but there are some great positives in looking to the future with the youth that England have. Along with Sterling, who is determined to improve his goal output, England can take a look at the likes of Dele Alli, Ross Barkley, Eric Dier and Harry Kane. When Jack Grealish gets clearance he will add to a great young midfield. Tottenham’s Harry Kane, who is in a hot scoring streak at the moment is 5/2 in the anytime goalscorer market, the same price as England’s record scorer Wayne Rooney. Jamie Vardy is a 3/1 poke. This isn’t a game where you would expect a hatful of goals, though because three of Spain’s last four friendly matches have featured two goals or fewer.

The last four games in Spain between these two have gone under 2.5 goals and you can back Friday’s game to go under the goal line for 8/13 with Boylesports. Spain are in great form at the moment, currently run on a six-match winning streak. Impressively during that run, they have shipped just the one goal as well. At home in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, they averaged exactly three goals per game and conceded just the one goal in their five home fixtures. That’s going to be tough for England to break down. Chelsea’s Diego Costa has been recalled and he is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option, the same price as Paco Alcacer and Alvaro Morata. This isn’t going to be an easy trip to Alicante for England.

Spain v England Betting Odds

Spain 7/10, Draw 13/5, England 4/1

Spain v England Predictions

Some big questions should be asked of England here, even though it is a friendly. Spain are defensively tight and will control most of the possession in the game. England at the end of the day may be more concerned about not losing their unbeaten streak than pushing for the win. A Spain 1-0 correct score has big appeal at 9/2.

England v Lithuania Betting Preview

So it nine wins from nine now for Roy Hodgson’s England in Euro 2016 qualification. A 2-0 home win over Estonia on Friday edged them closer to becoming just the sixth nation ever to qualify for the European Championships with a 100% record. Significant changes will be made to the starting line up for the game from England’s perspective, with some of the established guard like Gary Cahill and Wayne Rooney being left at home. Will they still be able to produce a win in Vilnius?

Just in case England’s final challenge misfires then there is 0-0 bore draw insurance to enjoy at online betting site bet365. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time bet on the game and then if there are no goals produced in the game, you will get the lost stake refunded.

England v Lithuania Betting Tips

The Three Lions head out for the final test, if you can call it that, of Euro 2016 qualification. England have scored 28 goals so far and have conceded just the three at the back. Jack Butland will defending the England goal this time and other changes to the lineup will include Jonjo Shelvey coming in and there will be a centre half pairing of Phil Jagielka and Phil Jones. When they hosted Lithuania at Wembley back in March the Three Lions took a comfortable 4-0 win. With England having been so comfortable through Euro 2016 qualification it’s not unreasonable to expect England to pull out a win to nil which can be backed at a price of 10/11 with online betting site Bet365.

Roy Hodgson will stick with Harry Kane in Wayne Rooney’s absence. The Tottenham man who had a quiet night against Estonia on Friday is running as even money anytime goalscorer favourite. Other options hovering around the 6/4 with Bet365 for the game are Theo Walcott, Danny Ings and Jamie Vardy. With England expected to bank a clean sheet then you should be able to look for some value in the correct score market where and England 1-0 and an England 2-0 result can be backed at 5/1. England’s 4-0 triumph over Lithuania in March was the first competitive meeting between the two nations. England have obviously won their last nine competitive matches played and have only shipped two goals in their last four. England have kept four clean sheets in their last five played (competitive and friendly).

Even though they will be sending out an unfamiliar line up, the Three Lions should still be able to pick up the three points. Lithuania are likely to be well-organised more than any kind of threat in the game and they go into their final qualification game on the back of an away draw in Slovenia on Friday. That wasn’t enough to keep them in the hunt for third place though. Lithuania have scored seven and conceded 15 in their nine matches so far and have won just one of their last ten international matches played, losing seven on those. They have failed to score in seven of those last ten games as well. At home in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, Estonia have posted a W2 L2 record the home triumphs coming over Estonia and San Marino.

England v Lithuania Betting Odds

England 4/11, Draw 4/1, Lithuania 10/1

England v Lithuania Predictions

Two sides with nothing to play for really. It’s not likely to be a classic and England with their slow starts in Euro 2016 qualification matches will take some time to settle in with all the personnel changes. They are good enough to win the match but it’s likely to be a boring game under 2.5 goals.
