Next up for England in their quest to qualify for the 2020 European Championships is a home clash with Bulgaria at Wembley.
The Three Lions are topping Group A with 6 points after just 2 games and with Bulgaria bottom with just 2 points after 4 games then it’s hard to see anything bet a win for the home nation here.
The betting backs this up, as England are only 1.10 in the match betting market, with the draw 9.00 and Bulgaria a massive 21.00.
There is a big gulf between the sides when it comes to the FIFA Rankings, with England 4th and Bulgaria 60th, while from the 10 previous head-to-heads – England have won 6, while we’ve seen 4 draws – so the Three Lions have never lost to Bulgaria.
In fact, Bulgaria have scored just one goal in their last 8 head-to-heads against England.
Over 2.5 goals, might be an option at 1.50, while it goes without saying that Harry Kane, with 22 England goals and Raheem Sterling, with 8 goals for his country will be popular in the scoring markets.
Both teams ‘NOT’ to score at 1.25 looks a banker bet too – as pointed out Bulgaria have not scored many when playing England in the past, while this bet has also paid out in 7 of the last 8 head-to-heads.
England to win ‘to nil’ is a slightly better 1.36 in the betting, but it might be worth taking a chance on OVER 3.5 GOALS here at 2.20.
This bet has paid out in 3 of England’s last 4 games too, while the Three Lions have scored a total of 10 goals in their last 3 home games at Wembley.
BEST BET: OVER 3.5 GOALS @2.20
