England vs Algeria betting
England odds and betting tips against Algeria
England’s second opponents in South Africa will be relative minnows, Algeria, with the game taking place on June 18th. England are red-hot favourites going into this game with the best odds on an England win being 1/3 with SKYBET. This will be Algeria’s first World Cup Finals since 1986 meaning none of the players will have any experience of World Cup football. This will not help their cause as they may be overawed by the competition and pressure of playing a side such as England.
England will be hugely confident of victory against Algeria. They have more than enough quality in the side to rip the likes of Algeria apart. Should England find their form in this match there is only one way this game is going to go, a huge England victory. With this in mind, it may be worth having a punt on some correct scores to zero. 3-0 to England is available at 7/1, 4-0 at 12s and 5-0 at 25/1 (all with Paddy Power), having a bet on each of these scores may offer a decent return.
Despite England looking so dominant for this game, Algeria do have some capable players and must have something about them to have qualified in the first place, 11/1 (Paddy Power) is available on them getting a shock victory. They qualified from the African group C with 5 victories out of the 7 games. This included an impressive victory against African Cup of Nations champions Egypt, in the final group game. However, England will be a completely different proposition to what they faced in qualification. They do have some players who have played in the top-flight of English football such as Nadir Belhadj (Portsmouth) and Kamel Ghilas (Hull City) and without setting the league alight, they do look like energetic and committed players who could cause England some problems. Another possible thing in favour of Algeria could be the fact they will be use to the conditions and quality of pitches in Africa. However, this is clutching at straws really, England will have had the USA match to get a feel for the conditions and FIFA will do everything they can in order to get the pitches playing perfectly.
Overall, the only smart money is on an England win. Should England hit anywhere near their top-form Algeria will struggle to hold them. Algeria will probably be hoping to snatch a draw (9/2- 888sport) should complacency creep into England’s game as has happened in the past. However that was under previous regimes and I’m certain that Fabio Capello will not let this happen and fully expect a comprehensive England victory in this first meeting between these two sides.
