And internationals provide easier respite for punters
International week is normally a horrible week for betting, with punters having to use significant Asian Handicaps just to gain some decent payback. However, with the way English football is at the moment (everyone beating everyone else), it might provide a little bit of light relief.
With that in mind, here are my international bets of the week:
Germany have done very well in the last couple of years to shake their stereotypical ‘efficient’ tag. Instead, with players such as Ozil, Marin and Muller they have young flair players intent on bombing forward. In fact, Germany have scored 13 goals in their four qualifying games. Their opponents, Kazakhstan, have not troubled the scorers whilst conceding ten.
Stick £20 on Germany to win by more than three goals and get £38
Holland have won all four of their competitive games since the World Cup final, and therefore should be backed at better than 1.5’s to win in Budapest. Meanwhile, Italy are unbeaten so far in qualifying, and whilst they do often struggle away at neighbours Slovenia, odds of 2.25 are far too tempting
Stick £10 on Holland and Italy to win and get £36
Normally hate betting on England, but with the new ‘Oh he’s the best player ever’ Gareth Bale out England should be victorious. Im going to back the 2-0 win, and also fancy James Milner to get on the scoresheet at anytime. Well why not?
£5 on England to win 2-0 gets you £27.50
£5 on Milner to score any time gets you £25
Finally, with the introduction of our betting prediction league, here are my selections for the chosen games:
