England vs Wales betting preview
England take on Wales on Tuesday evening in their penultimate Euro 2012 qualifying game. Both sides enjoyed good wins over the weekend and will be looking to continue that good form with another victory at Wembley. Wales still hold an outside chance of taking 2nd place in the group after getting their first win last time out, but England will be looking to seal top spot.
England vs Wales odds
England enjoyed a good 3-0 win over Bulgaria in Sofia on Friday night to put themselves 3 points clear at the top of Group G. Wayne Rooney was in particularly great form, netting 2 goals in the process and striking up a good partnership with Ashley Young. The Man United Striker then, is looking good odds at 4.0 from Bet365 to open the scoring on the night. Fabio Capello’s men are firm favourites to win at Wembley and best priced at 1.14 from Paddy Power. The corresponding fixture in Wales finished 2-0 to England back in March and a similar score line is looking like a good bet at 6.0 with William Hill. Wales have improved since that game, but England will be spurred on by the fact that a win on Tuesday will leave them only needing a draw in Montenegro in their final game to secure top spot. This also means that a bet of England to score in the first 10 minutes, might be a good bet with odds of 4.0 from Skybet.
Wales got their first win in Euro 2012 Qualifying on Friday when their earned a 2-1 home win against Montenegro. Steve Morison got Wales opening goal in Cardiff and the Norwich man is looking like the most likely source of an away goal on Tuesday night. With this in mind, the striker is looking like a good outside bet at 6.5 with Skybet to get on the score sheet at any time during the match. Wales have only ever won once in England, and this is reflected in their odds, with the best price on an away win coming at 21.0 from Stan James. Wales have conceded 9 goals so far in qualifying and England have scored an impressive 14, which means betting on over 2.5 goals at 1.5 from Skybet, is looking like a good option. England did make a few mistakes on Friday that may have been punished by a better side, and so odds of 2.62 from William Hill for both teams to score is looking like a good option.
