Ladbrokes offer Scotland v England Money Back Special

How will the Scots handle the pressure when they face up to England at Hampden Park on Saturday? This boils down to pretty much being a must win game for the Scots to keep their hopes of reaching the World Cup 2018 alive. But needing to win and actually winning are two different things and the Scots have lost their last three on the bounce against England home and away, and on home soil have won just one of their last nine against the Three Lions. England have shipped just three goals in their last nine visits to Scotland and with them not having shipped a goal in qualification so far, they are favourites for this one. England have dropped just the two points on the road to Russia 2018 so far and will be hoping that the goalscoring form that Harry Kane produced down the backstretch of the Premier League season for Spurs carries over to international level. England can strengthen their spot at the top three points in this one. If the Scotland v England match on Saturday 10th of June results in a draw, Ladbrokes will refund losing bets on that match up to £25 per market, as Free Bets.

Scotland v England Predictions & Betting Odds – 10th June 2017

Rose - Kane (Tottenham)
Scotland v England Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 10th June England have been making light work of Group F World Cup 2018 qualification, having dropped just the two points along the way. They banked a 3-0 home win over Scotland earlier in qualification and will be looking to complete the double over the auld enemy. For the Scots this is really a must win game because dropped points in this one would be a hammer blow for them as Slovakia and Slovenia are already ahead of them in the race for second place in the group.

Scotland v England Betting Tips

The pressure really is all on Scotland for this fixture as it is virtually a must-win game for them. England are running away with the group and the Scots are also trailing Slovakia and Slovenia in the race for second place. So they can’t afford to not claim at least a point in this one. But this is a tough game for them having lost 3-0 against England at Wembley earlier in the campaign. But they can take heart from having dug out a vital win in their last qualifier at home against Slovenia, thanks to a late goal. Scotland are more reliable on home soil than away, but that having been said, they have won two of their last six home games, but have been level at half-time in five of those six. A half-time draw at Bet365 has some big value at a price of 21/10 as the Scots have proven to be a tough nut to crack in front of their own crowd. Scotland have conceded exactly three goals in each of their last three games against England and in the Bet365 correct score market and England 3-0 in this one is a price of 11/1 while and England 3-1 correct score is at 16/1. England have yet to concede a goal in the group, so Scotland will have to work hard up front for their spoils. Scotland opened their qualifying home account with a hugely disappointing 1-1 draw with Lithuania, which was a missed opportunity for them, before landing that win over Slovenia. In the anytime goalscorer market, Scotland's Leigh Griffiths is their shortest priced option at a price of 7/2. Scotland have gone W1 D2 L6 in their last nine home games against the Three Lions, scoring just the three goals in that sequence. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365 is a quote of 3/5 and England are a price of 6/4 to win to nil. England have netted eight unanswered goals in the group so far and actually, looking back across Euros and World Cup qualifiers, they have taken nine consecutive clean sheets, winning eight of those games. England are a quote of 10/11 to pick up a clean sheet in this one with Bet365. Harry Kane is first goalscorer favourite at 7/2 and he was on fire for Spurs at the back end of the Premier League season, scoring seven goals in his final two games. The Three Lions have gone W3 D2 L1 in their last six games, the defeat in that sequence coming against Germany in a friendly. They have collected four points from two away games in the group so far, with a 1-0 win in Slovakia and a 0-0 draw in Slovenia.

Mexico v England U20 World Cup 2017 Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th June 2017

Mexico v England U20 World Cup 2017 Betting Tips

Mexico have made it to the quarter-finals having edged their way past Senegal in the last round, putting a 1-0 victory on the board. In the group stage of the U20 World Cup 2017, Mexico finished second in their group over Germany on goal difference but behind the in-form Venezuela. They did fail to score in two of their three group stage matches, so that is one goal in their last three games in the competition from them, so that should give England some hope. The Mexicans needed a 94th-minute winner in their opener against outsiders Vanuatu in their opening game, before drawing with Germany and then losing to Venezuela. Under 2.5 goals at Coral is a quote of 8/15. The Mexican’s aren’t carrying a lot of scoring power but it is Ronaldo Cisneros who has scored two of their four goals in the tournament so far and who is their record goalscorer at this level, is a great in-play goalscorer option at Coral to watch. He has scored in six of the Mexico U20 last ten games and is their record goalscorer at this level. England found themselves a goalscoring hero in the last round, as Everton’s Ademola Bookman netted himself a brace as the young Lions beat Costa Rica 2-1. He’ll be worth looking at in-play as well for the game. England were cruising at 2-0 up before their opponents got a consolation on the board with just a minute to play. England won their group and have now gone W3 D1 in their four matches in the competition and two of the three wins have been by a single goal margin. England to win by a one-goal margin at Coral is a price of 5/2 and has huge appeal. Paul Simpson's men are looking pretty solid at the moment and they should be able to pick off their opponents. Six different players have for England’s seven tournament goals so far. An England 1-0 correct score is running at 5/1 for the match.

Mexico v England U20 World Cup 2017 Betting Odds

England even money, draw 9/4, Mexico 29/10

Mexico v England U20 World Cup 2017 Predictions

England to win: Another low scoring game is going to come our way most likely in this quarter-final showdown. The stakes are rising and more caution will come. Mexico are a threat, but England look strong at the back so should keep them quiet and the young Lions can edge it by a one-goal margin.

England v Costa Rica U20 World Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 31st May 2017

World Cup Betting
England v Costa Rica Betting Preview - U20 World Cup 2017 31st May England’s young Lions made a pretty strong impact in the opening round of the U-20 World Cup by winning their group. That puts them through to the round of sixteen where they will face up against Costa Rica. This should be a winnable match for England and the prize for it would be a match up against either Mexico or Senegal in the quarter finals and the young Lions would be favourite there whoever they were to face. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

England v Costa Rica Betting Tips

England were pretty tidy and neat getting through Group A of the U-20 World Cup as winners. They opened with a bang to set themselves up so well as they crushed Argentina 3-0 in their opener. They were dialled back in a bit when Guinea held them to a draw in their second match, but then England came out and delivered a narrow win over hosts South Korea in their final group match to win the group ahead of the Koreans. That was a good win as South Korea had won their two previous group games. England scored five and conceded just the one in their group stage. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 for this one is a price of 4/5 with an England to win to nil wager coming in at a tempting 21/20 price. England’s goals in the tournament so far have all been scored by different players, so just watch in-play betting for the value in strikers through that. This isn’t a tournament at which England U20 have a great track record in this tournament at all, with a third place finish in 1993 their best effort and haven’t been past the second round since then. They failed to qualify for the 2015 event but look very solid this time around. In the bet365 correct score market an England 1-0 or an England 2-0 will return you a price of 5/1 and with them scoring just one goal in each of their last two games and Costa Rica being tight in defence, the 1-0 scoreline in favour of Paul Simpson’s Young Lions has some good appeal for the game. Costa Rica finished third in the group behind Zambia and Portugal with a W1 D1 L1 record. They scored two goals and conceded just the two goals as well along the way. One of their strikes was a penalty, so they shouldn’t pose England too many problems. Both teams not to score in the fixture at Bet365 is a price of 8/13. As this is expected to be a tight game, but with England prevailing, a Draw/England U-20 half time/full-time bet is a good quote of 13/5 for the game. This will be the first-ever meeting between the nations at the U20 World Cup. Costa Rica’s best ever finish with a 4th place in the 2009 edition, but lost out in this round in the 2011 edition and failed to make either the 2013 or 2015 editions.

England v Costa Rica Betting Odds

England 4/11, Draw 15/4, Costa Rica 15/2

England v Costa Rica Predictions

England to win: There should just be enough for England to grind their way through this one as they did against hosts South Korea in the group stage. England have a decent looking attack and Costa Rica aren’t going to offer much in that department. So look for England to progress and the 1-0 correct score has masses of appeal.

England v South Africa Second ODI Cricket Betting Preview & Odds 27th May, 2017

Cricket Betting
England opened up a 1-0 series lead in their ODI duel with South Africa on Wednesday. England put a decent score up in the match at Headingley, with a top score of 107 from captain Eoin Morgan carrying them to a 339-6 total batting first. With South Africa, the top ODI side in the world and carrying four of the world’s top eleven batsmen in their ranks though, there was always the threat of the tourists putting on a serious chase. The Proteas were looking comfortable early on in their response with Hashim Amla and Du Plessis cracking off half-centuries and they looked well poised at 145-1 at one point. But then tourists pretty much just started giving their wickets away and England’s bowling attack obliged. Going into the series, there were questions about whether or not England’s attack with the ball in hand was strong enough to match up to their batting. But they came through pretty well at Headingley and now with the advantage under their belt they have been cut to a price of 4/5 at Ladbrokes to win the second match up on Saturday in Southampton. South Africa are a quote of even money at Ladbrokes to land the victory. They can, of course, expect something of a fightback from the Proteas in this one, because they do have the batting power to pull themselves back into this Series. So on the road to the Champions Trophy this year, this is another step in England’s progress. Will they be able to hold their nerve if they come under pressure of some stern South African resistance? England’s run of form at the Rose Bowl too may edge something towards the South Africans as well because England have lost five of their last six matches played there. The track will be very batsman-friendly which will play into the pocket of the tourists as much as England. You can take a quote of 4/5 at Ladbrokes on any player scoring a century in the match while you have an abundance of options in the batting markets. Jos Buttler is a tempting 7/1 punt to finish at Top England Batsman for the second ODI while you have Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock at 10/3 joint-favourites to top score for visitors. The latter looks a fantastic punt for the track that he will be playing on. You are likely going to be looking a very strong batting scores in this one and over 300 in the first innings looks more than likely to happen. Will England be able to now, with an advantage on the board, step on the gas and really put their opponents to the sword? If the latter happens, if they are ruthless enough to pull off the win in the second match then their Champions Trophy stock would rise.

Under 20 World Cup Betting 2017 Football Winner Odds & Predictions

Alban Lafont
Yes, there is some World Cup betting to look forward to this summer as the FIFA Under 20 tournament kicks off out in South Korea. This is a 24-nation tournament which kicks off on May 20th and runs through to June 11th and the tournament will be hosted across six different venues. There is some home nation interest as well, as England, are there on the back of a solid U-19 tournament in 2016 as they made the semi-finals there. So there you can see the natural development of the youth game. Just like England the rest of the UEFA contingent, all of the other qualified nations came through youth tournaments played out over the last year or so. It is now on to the World Cup and it looks as if it is going to be tremendously competitive tournament as well. There are six groups of four nations in the first round, with the top two from each of the groups making it through to the round of sixteen, where they will be joined by the four best third-placed sides from the group stage. So this is a long tournament for the youngsters, with a long, long road to the Under 20 World Cup Final.

Under 20 World Cup 2017 Seeding & Draw

The seeing for the tournament saw the nations split up into four pots, with hosts South Korea joining the first pot of top seeds. The seeding pots then determined the draw for the Under 20 world Cup 2017 (one team from each pot being drawn per group), and the seeding itself was based on respective results over the last five FIFA U-20 World Cups with more recent tournament weighing more heavily. Unfortunately for England, that left them down in Pot 3 along with the likes of Venezuela and Zambia. Pot 1: South Korea, Portugal, Uruguay, France, United States, Germany Pot 2: Mexico, Argentina, new Zealand, Senegal, Japan, Costa Rica Pot 3: Zambia, Honduras, England, Saudi Arabia, Italy, Venezuela Pot 4: Ecuador, South Africa, Iran, Vietnam, Guinea, Vanuatu Group A: South Korea, Guinea, Argentina, England Frankly, the draw could have been a little worse for England because out of Pot 1 they managed to get the weakest side in the form of hosts South Korea. So that should leave Argentina as their biggest threat to winning the group. England, who have Paul Simpson has the head coach, carded their best ever finish at an Under 20 World Cup all the way back in 1993 when they finished third. So it has been a while since they really performed. They aren’t really a force at this level. This being young players, of course, they aren’t particularly household names yet, but there is a strong contingent from the likes of Chelsea and Everton in the squad, including Ademola Lookman and Dominic Solanke, while Liverpool’s Sheyi Ojo is with the squad. Argentina finished fourth at this year’s South American Youth Football Championship, behind Uruguay, Ecuador and Venezuela, so England have a real chance in this group. Prediction: England win, Argentina qualify Group B: Venezuela, Germany, Vanuatu, Mexico Germany are one of the front runners for the tournament and there is going to be nothing to trip them up in this tournament. Their trickiest challenge will probably come in their opener when they go up against Venezuela, who finished third at the 2017 South American Youth Football Championship. But Germany are a class, class act with plenty of depth running through their squad and they will have an impact. Vanuatu, making their first appearance at the tournament will probably just make up the numbers, leaving Mexico, who didn't make it to the second group stage of the 2017 CONCACAF U20 Championship the dark horse. Forward Ronaldo Cisneros could be one to watch out for in the goalscorer markets. Prediction: Germany win, Venezuela qualify Group C: Zambia, Portugal, Iran, Costa Rica Portugal did get to the semi-finals of the 2016 UEFA European U-19 Championship where they lost out to France. They only look average at best though and this is a wide open group here. Costa Rica were underwhelming in their 2017 CONCACAF U-20 campaign, while you have the unknown quantities of Iran and Zambia in the mix. A tough group to call, but perhaps it will be the pragmatism of Portugal who wins through. Prediction: Portugal win, Costa Rica qualify Group D: South Africa, Japan, Italy, Uruguay This will be in an interesting group to watch because it looks to be wide open. Uruguay will take the role as favourites though after winning the 2017 South American Youth Football Championship, so they will be a threat in this one. Japan are always enterprising, but perhaps just lack the overall quality, while Italy aren’t a tremendous force at this level, but they did get to last year’s UEFA U-19 Championship Final where they lost to France. Prediction: Uruguay win, Italy qualify Group E: France, Honduras, Vietnam, New Zealand The French will be delighted with such an easy looking group ahead of them. They are the outright favourites and can boast some tremendous talent. Les Bleus won the 2016 UEFA Under 19 Championship, thumping Italy 4-0 in the final. With the likes of Jean-Kevin Augustin And Kylian Mbappe around the squad, they are going to be a force to be reckoned with and they are justifiable outright favourites for this tournament. The rest of this group aren’t going to get close to them, and you'll have a toss up between the Kiwis and Hazardous for the second spot. The Central Americans are probably the best shot to take it. Prediction: France win, Honduras qualify Group F: Ecuador, United States, Saudi Arabia, Senegal Well, pick a winner out of this bunch. The United States will probably be the ones who edge top spot in this somewhat uninspiring group. That having been said though, this is a good chance for an underdog nation to really come through and make a bit of a splash in the tournament. As to which one that would be, that’s a hard call, but Senegal may just have the edge to muscle their way through to the round of sixteen. Prediction: USA win, Ecuador qualify

Round of Sixteen Set Up

It’s good for your U-20 World Cup 2017 betting at Bet365 to look ahead to the knockout stages and see what path your team could be taking. For England, coming from Group A as winners would give them a nice tie against one of the third-placed teams in the round of sixteen. If they finish second, they would go up against the Group C runner-up, which probably wouldn’t be a disaster. All in all, it’s about avoiding big guns like France And Germany for as long as possible. Runner Up Group A v Runner Up Group C Winner Group D v Third Place Finisher Winner Group B v Third Place Finisher Winner Group F v Runner Up Group E Winner Group E v Runner Up Group D Winner Group C v Third Place Finisher Runner UP Group B v Runner Up Group F Winner Group A v Third Place Finisher

U20 World Cup 2017 Predictions

Well, France are the front-runners at Bet365 and they are well worth a punt. They are such a strong side and have some of the best youth in the world running in their squad at the moment. They are going to be a hard, hard side to stop. Germany should be in the mix at the business end of the tournament but aren’t quite as well rounded out as the French. England should be a solid quarter final lock for this one, and Italy will be looking to push on from progress at the U-19 Championships. Our outside wager would be Uruguay because they are carrying some very good attacking talent at the moment and won’t be easy to break down either. They impressed this year at the South American Youth Football Championships.

England v Lithuania Predictions & Betting Odds – 26th March 2017

Vardy - Sterling (England)
England v Lithuania Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 26th March - Kick off 5pm This should be a routine home game at Wembley for England as they face Lithuania. England can really march on towards Russia 2018 with maximum points collected from this one. They have already won their two home games in qualifying so far and they have not conceded a goal in their quest to make next summer’s final yet. Lithuania were easily brushed aside by the Three Lions when the two met in Euro 2016 qualifying, will this one go the same way as England look forward under Gareth Southgate? There is a new customer exclusive offer from Paddy Power for England Lithuania betting.

This is a £10 maximum stake offer and the enhanced winnings will be paid out in free bets. This is a new customer exclusive only, so you have to sign up and first make a qualifying deposit of at least £10 with them. This promotion is live until 17:00 on Sunday, March 26th.

England v Lithuania Betting Tips

Well, England will be looking to consolidate or even strengthen their lead at the top of Group F in World cup 2018 qualifying on the weekend. They have a two-point cushion going into the weekend over Slovenia and the Three Lions are comfortable, as expected. They have only scored the six goals in their four games so far, which has been a little disappointing in terms of output. At home so far in the group, England have beaten Scotland 3-0 and Malta 2-0 so are probably going to be at ease in this one too. England to win to nil at Paddy Power returns a price of 1/2. An England 2-0 and England 3-0 correct score options in the game are both up at a price of 9/2 and are value with England having yet to concede a single goal in qualification. They aren’t likely to be under too much pressure at the back. England though have been level at the break in each of their four qualification games so far, so a Draw/England half time/full-time bet at Paddy Power looks tempting at 11/4. Jamie Vardy is 5/6 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market with Jermain Defoe at 10/11 and Marcus Rashford at even money. It would be a major shock if England slipped to a defeat in this one as they have managed to go 33 matches now in qualification for major international tournaments, unbeaten (W25 D8). So Lithuania faces a tough task to try and record a win in this one. The visitors have failed to win any of their last six competitive games away from home in a W2 L4 record. This will be just the third match between the two nations after they were paired together in Euro 2016 qualifying. England produced a 7-0 aggregate from those two games. Out on the road in World Cup 2018 qualifying, Lithuania have suffered a 4-0 loss at Slovakia and earned a 1-1 draw in Scotland on their travels. While they may offer some stubborn resistance early on, forcing England to show some patience and perhaps craft, they don't have much to offer going forward. They lost 3-0 in midweek against the Czech Republic in a friendly. Under 2.5 goals at Paddy Power may be an option worth considering if you can see the visitors being determined to dig in and try and earn a precious point. They aren’t going to go better than that, though.

England v Lithuania Betting Odds

England 1/9, Draw 8/1, Lithuania 20/1

England v Lithuania Predictions

England home win: Lithuania are likely going to show up, park the bus and hope to take the sting out of England and get a draw. They aren’t even likely to do that though in the end. England have enough to take down the visitors and they should win this one to nil. It may be tempting to have a punt on that Draw/England Half Time/Full Time option, though.

Ladbrokes offer England 4/1 enhanced odds to score against Lithuania

After their midweek friendly international defeat against Germany out in Dortmund, England get down to more serious business on the weekend as they take on Lithuania in World Cup 2018 qualifying. The Three Lions are top of their qualification group by a couple of points ahead of Slovenia. So they are looking comfortable at the moment and they will be looking to make it three home wins from three in the campaign on Sunday. England have not conceded a goal in qualifying so far but their goal output hasn’t been particularly high with just six goals in four games. But they should find themselves creating plenty of chances against Lithuania and when the two met in Euro 2016 qualifying, England rolled out a 7-0 aggregate over the two games against the Baltic state. So there shouldn't be any dramas for the Three Lions at Wembley on the weekend.
