Ladbrokes offer Slovenia v England Money Back Special

Well it was job done against Malta for the Three Lions and now England go into battle with Slovenia on Tuesday night hoping to make it three wins from three in their World Cup 2018 qualification group. The big news out of the preparations is that interim boss Gareth Southgate has ditched Wayne Rooney to the bench to bring in Tottenham’s Eric Dier for the game. It’s a brave move, dropping the experience of Rooney for an away game, will it pay off? England beat Slovenia twice during Euro 2016 qualification and have indeed won all four previous meetings between the two nations. It was a bit of as squeeze for england last time out there though, only winning 3-2. But this is a winnable match again for England against Slovenia who have failed to score in three of their last five games and who were so very nearly beaten by minnows Lithuania in their opening qualification match. However, Slovenia have lost just one of their last nine qualification matches on home soil. Open an account with online betting site Ladbrokes and get your money back if the game ends in a draw.

Slovenia v England Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifying 11th October These two nations come back together after having squared off in Euro 2016 qualifying. England won both of those meetings but they had a battle on their hands out in Slovenia, taking a 3-2 win against a plucky Slovenian side. England have won both of their opening qualification matches for World Cup 2018 and will be confident after having already won in Slovakia. But Slovenia have carded an unbeaten start as well having taken four points from their two games and they will have been boosted in confidence after beating Slovakia 1-0 in Ljubljana on the weekend.

Slovenia v England Betting Tips

It was always going to be a winning start that England made under Gareth Southgate’s temporary tenure, as they rolled off a predicted win against Malta. It was only a 2-0 win though which probably provoke a lot of punters’ goal-line bets on the game. The damage was done in the first half and England cruised the second period, the players looking as if they were already thinking about this game against Slovenia. This is a much bigger test than for Southgate who went with Daniel Sturridge, Theo Walcott and Jesse Lingard up front, much to people’s surprise. Will Southgate be brave enough to stick with Wayne Rooney again who came in for more flack with a display that saw him offer no threat whatsoever in the game? So it is six points from six so far in qualifying and the Three Lions will be looking for a repeat of a victory that they took in Slovenia in Euro 2016 qualifying. That was a 3-2 win in game which England didn’t make things easy for themselves at the back. Still it was three goals on the board and that followed a 3-1 home win over Slovenia. So it may just be worth backing both teams to score in this one for a price of 11/10 as that has happened in three of the four previous meetings between these two. All of those meetings incidentally, have ended in victories for England. So clearly England weren't at their best against Malta and frankly didn’t need to be. In the anytime goalscorer market, Daniel Sturridge and Marcus Rashford are 7/4 options for the game, with Jamie Vardy and Theo Walcott at the 8/5 mark. It will be interesting to see how England go in this one, a game which they can win on the road and the Three Lions to win by a 1 goal margin will return to a price of 9/4. Slovenia have taken four points from their opening two matches then with a 2-2 draw against Lithuania in which they had to fight back from two goals down, and then a confidence boosting 1-0 home win over Slovakia. So there is a hint there that England will be running into a resilient side, but they have only gone W2 D2 L2 over their last six games, but that having been said, they have won their last two games in Ljubljana and both of them by a 1-0 scoreline. A Slovenia 1-0 correct score will fetch you a price of 17/2. Milivoje Novakovic is their big threat going forward really and actually just about the only one that they have and he is a price of 3/1 in the anytime goalscorer market. Slovenia have scored just the four goals in their last six games, two of them coming in that draw with Lithuania. They have failed to score in three of their last five.

Slovenia v England Betting Odds

England 3/5, Draw 14/5, Slovenia 19/4

Slovenia v England Predictions

England can eek out a win in this one. It really doesn't matter at this point if it is just a 1-0 win, they just have to go there and put the three points in the bag. A much tougher test though for Gareth Southgate, but England have the players to deliver the win. A low scoring game under 2.5 goals and England to sneak the win.

Ladbrokes offer Money Back if Malta Score against England

England look to have a pretty comfortable home game on their hands in World Cup 2018 qualifying on Saturday when they host Malta. The Three Lions need a big performance to get over the mess that Sam Allardyce left in his wake. Gareth Southgate is the man in charge for the time being and he will be hoping to guide England to a big home win in his first game in charge of the senior side. England have won all three of their previous games against Malta, running up eight goals. Malta though, while they struggle badly to win games, have not conceded more than three goals in all but one of their last eleven competitive matches. So even though they are considered minnows, their defence has some resiliency about it. England have been hit with some big injuries and while the Three Lions will likely roll out a win, you can get a lost stake refund at Ladbrokes if the visitors manage to score. Register an account with Ladbrokes and get Money Back if Malta score against England If the England v Malta match on Saturday 8 October ends with Malta scoring against England then Ladbrokes will refund losing bets on that match  up to £25 per market, as Free Bets.

Coral offer 33/1 enhanced odds on England to beat Malta

There should be a routine evening for Gareth Southgate as he takes temporary charge of the England side for the first time when they host Malta at Wembley on Saturday in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers. It’s not been the best of times for the English, but they take on the group’s minnows and the Three Lions will be expected to put Matla to the sword to some degree. They have the attacking power in their ranks to do so even with the loss of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling through injury. Malta lost their opening World Cup qualifier against Scotland 5-1, although they did get two red cards in the match, which never helps when you are a heavy underdog anyway. So a big chance for England here to run up the goals in Group F and for them to dust themselves off after the whole Sam Allardyce spectacle. England are going to win this game, it’s just a matter of by how big of a margin. Open an account with Coral and take 33/1 enhanced odds on England to beat Malta.

England v Malta Predictions & Betting Odds – 8th October 2016

Vardy - Sterling (England)
England v Malta Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 8th October This isn’t going to be a game which goes badly for interim England boss Gareth Southgate. A win will be put on the board and really it is only going to be about the amount of goals that England can produce in the fixture. You would imagine that the only thing that could go wrong is England stuttering to a low-scoring win in the game. England opened their World Cup 2018 qualification campaign with an injury time winner over Slovakia in what is probably going to be their toughest game of the campaign. So they have the chance to start building further momentum. Malta lost their opener 5-1 against Scotland and are heavy underdogs for their trip to Wembley. Online betting site Paddy Power are offering 3/1 enhanced odds on England to beat Malta in this fixture. This is a new customer exclusive so you have to open an account with them to get the enhanced odds and you can do that by following our promotional links.

England v Malta Betting Tips

Games as easy as this don’t come along too often,so England should be putting a comfortable three qualification points on the board on Saturday. A nice way to ease into the interim managerial job then for Gareth Southgate. England, thanks to an injury time winner from Adam Lallana, took a deserved 1-0 win out in Slovakia to kick off their campaign on the road to Russia 2018. England never faced a shot on target in that match up and it's hard to see Malta causing them too many issues at the back either. So right out of the gate you would be expecting England to win to nil which isn’t a tremendous value at 2/9 with online betting site Paddy Power. That’s just a reflection of how easy this game should be for the Three Lions, so you will have to go shopping around for other value in England v Malta betting. Winning margins are worth a look as you have a quote of England to win by three goals at a price of 4/1 while England winning by 4 or more goals is a 1/2 shot. England have the scoring power in their ranks to warm up the back of the net, and it may be a great chance to throw young Marcus Rashford into the starting eleven. He is a 4/11 joint favourite in the anytime goalscorer market with Daniel Sturridge, with Jamie Vardy 1/3 to net and Wayne Rooney at 1/2. Going off England winning the game to nil there are good options in the correct score market where and England 4-0, England 3-0 or England 5-0 are all trading as 5/1 options. Over 4.5 goals in the game will fetch a quote of 4/5. A three or four goal haul for England sounds about right. Despite Malta being 101st in FIFA Rankings, just once in their last eleven competitive matches have they shipped more than three goals in a game. That exception was in their 5-1 loss against Scotland in their opening World Cup 2018 qualifiers (when they had two player sent off). Malta have met England just once before and that was in an international friendly Ta Qali National Stadium in Valletta back in June 2000. England only managed a pretty poor 2-1 win in the game thanks to Emile Heskey netting a winner. Gareth Southgate as in the squad for that game. Since beating Lithuania in a friendly back in 2015, Malta have failed to win any of their last eleven games, putting up a D3 L8 record in their last ten games played. They have scored in just four of their last eleven but have netted in each of their last two. They have won just one of their last 21 games played. They will be pretty much doing nothing more than trying to keep the score down.

England v Malta Betting Odds

England 1/50, Draw 18/1, Malta 50/1

England v Malta Predictions

This is a game which England will win and it just going to be about the margin of victory for them. They aren’t likely to ship a goal in the game and given the fact that Malta haven’t really been hammered much over the last year or so, it may be worth looking at a winning margin of three goals for England, or an England 3-0 correct score punt. Malta haven’t shipped a lot of goals really considering their lowly position in the world rankings, so don’t expect them to get totally rolled over in defeat.

Paddy Power offer 3/1 enhanced odds on England to beat Malta

Paddy Power
England will be looking to pull themselves out of the doldrums with a good win over minnows Malta on Saturday. This will be the first competitive meeting between the two nations, their only previous coming together being a friendly victory for England by a 2-1 scoreline back in June 2000. England will be hoping for a more convincing victory this time around those as they play hosts to the 101st ranked nation in FIFA at the moment. Can England put them to the sword or will it be another stuttering disappointing game from the Three Lions? Either way, England are going to win the match. They are facing a side who have won just one of their last 21 international fixtures (competitive and friendly). What will be boosting optimism for the Three Lions is that Malta lost 5-1 against Scotland in their opening World Cup 2018 qualification match although they did pull themselves level in the match, but fell apart with two sendings off. So England are going to dominate this fixture and keep a 100% start to Russia 2018 qualifying going and you can back them to win at a big enhanced price too.

Southgate favourite in Next England Manager Betting

Gareth Southgate
Next England manager betting? Weren’t we just discussing this recently? Well the 2016 calendar year just go even more embarrassment for the Three Lions as after just one game in charge, Sam Allardyce got the boot on Tuesday from the England manager job. Big Sam was recruited from Sunderland in the summer to come in and replace Roy Hodgson after the Three Lions’ miserable Euro 2016 non-spectacle where they were knocked out by Iceland. But the week however, Allardyce was relieved of his duties after comments about getting around transfer rules to undercover reporters from the Daily Telegraph, along with disparaging remarks about Roy Hodgson and Gary Neville. So that has opened up the market again for Next England manager betting, but who is going to want to pick up this poisoned chalice? Under 21 boss Gareth Southgate will step in as temporary manager of the senior team for the next four England matches against Malta, Slovenia, Scotland and Spain. He may well play his way into contention, but when the role was open in the summer, Southgate pretty much kept his distance from it. He is 7/4 to get the job on a full time basis and the list of contenders is a bit thin on the ground it has to be said. Steve Bruce is a 3/1 shot, with Bournemouth's Eddie Howe at 7/1 and Alan Pardew at 12/1. No doubt at some point, Arsene Wenger’s name will come into play as well, with the Frenchman out of contract at Arsenal in the summer, but the FA can’t exactly wait that long. The Arsenal boss is out at 20/1 at the moment, with Jurgen Klinsmann at 10/1, Laurent Blanc at 25/1 and Sean Dyche at 33/1 which is where Harry redknapp and Marcelo Bielsa is at, along with Louis van Gaal, Gary Neville and Manuel Pellegrini. In a statement the FA said: “Allardyce’s conduct, as reported today, was inappropriate of the England manager. He accepts he made a significant error of judgement and has apologised. However, due to the serious nature of his actions, The FA and Allardyce have mutually agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect. “This is not a decision that was taken lightly but The FA’s priority is to protect the wider interests of the game and maintain the highest standards of conduct in football. The manager of the England men’s senior team is a position which must demonstrate strong leadership and show respect for the integrity of the game at all times.” Bet365’s Steve Freeth said “Southgate distanced himself from the job when Roy Hodgson left, but there aren’t many candidates leaping off the page and four positive results could strengthen his case.” This is going to rapidly turn into the job that no-one wants. Once Southgate gets a taste of it, he may be tempted to stick around, but out of the bunch of contenders at the moment, former Hull boss Steve Bruce, who is out of work at the moment, is the most likely candidate to come forward. He was supposedly in the running when Hodgson left his post in the summer after Euro 2016.

Ladbrokes offer 25/1 odds on all Home Nations to reach World Cup 2018

World Cup Betting
There were positive starts by the home nations in World Cup 2018 qualification and online betting site Ladbrokes have slapped a price of 25/1 on all four of them reaching the Finals in a couple year. The last time that England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland were all at a major final was back at the World Cup in Sweden 1958. So it’s been a long, long wait to see them all line up again, but with positive starts to qualifying, can they all make it there? England needed a late strike by Adam Lallana to secure a win out in Slovakia, which arguably will be their toughest game of qualification. So with that out of the way and a relatively easy group to navigate their way through, the Three Lions remain a strong shot at 1/7 to win their World Cup 2018 qualification group which contains Scotland as well. England won all ten of their Euro 2016 qualification matches and will expect to unopposed to bank the automatic qualification spot. As a result of their 5-1 win over Malta, Scotland have been trimmed to 8/1 to win Group F of World Cup 2018 qualification. Of course there will be tougher matches to come than the whipping boys that are Malta, but the Scots did a good job against a lowly side who generally don’t ship a lot of goals. So the big win put them to the top of their qualification group after one match played. The top side from each of the qualification groups go through to the 2018 World Cup, while the best eight runners up will move through to a play off round. Wales, who had that brilliant run to the semi finals of Euro 2016 got their World Cup 2018 qualification campaign off to a flier with a 4-0 home win over minnows Moldova, with Gareth Bale netting a brace in the match. The Welsh will still have to do battle with Austria, Ireland and Serbia to try and make their way through to the World Cup Finals, but that was a great start from Chris Coleman’s men, who must still be running in high confidence after their exploits in the summer. Northern Ireland battled their way to a point against the Czech Republic to open their qualification campaign with, with wasn’t a bad point out on the road in the grand scheme of things. But perhaps like Scotland, they will be chasing a place at the World Cup 2018 through the play off round, because powerhouses Germany reside in their qualification group, the Germans opening with a comfortable 3-0 win over Norway. In addition to the Home Nations, you can also take a price of 5/2 on the Republic of Ireland to qualify from Group D, the Irish opening their campaign with a 2-2 draw at Serbia. Register an account with online betting site Ladbrokes and you can pick up a great welcome bonus from them.

Ladbrokes Slovakia v England betting Monday Back Special for a draw

England were hugely successful in their Euro 2016 qualification campaign, landing ten wins from ten. They opened with a road win over Switzerland which came after they had failed miserably at the 2014 World Cup. So maybe some history will repeat itself here, by winning out in Slovakia after their miserable Euro 2016 campaign. Can England kick off their Russia 2018 qualifying campaign with a win on the board? They are running at around even money to pick up maximum points from this one. Slovakia frustrated and annoyed England at Euro 2016 in the group stage. England managed to get off 28 shots against Slovakia but still failed to hit the back of the net, Slovakia mustering up just the four shots in response. So will England be able to dial in their composure and quality in front of goal and get their qualifying campaign off to a winning start? This is big Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge of the Three Lions and the pressure will be just that little bit less on him being out on the road. Can England grind out a win or will they be frustrated by the Slovakians again?
