It’s now less than a week until the curtain is raised on Euro 2016 and bwin have pulled out an exciting price boost for the legions upon legions of optimistic England fans.
The Three Lions can be backed at 17/2 to win the tournament, but why go near that when there’s a scintillating 6/5 to be had about Roy Hodgson’s men topping Group B after three games.
Place a bet of up to £100 on the current odds of 4/5 and, should the wager land, receive the profit from the enhanced odds as a free bet.
England are universally expected to advance from their pre-knockout stage pool, where they’ll face Russia, Wales and Slovakia, with plenty of punters expecting them to progress in first place.
Seven points has guaranteed top spot in every European Championship since the group stage was introduced in 1992 and Hodgson’s men have recorded at least six in every installment they’ve participated in bar one.
Having beaten Slovakia in each of their three meetings to date, England will be confident of getting one of their two wins required in their third game.
They haven’t so much as conceded a goal against Wales in four meetings since 1973, while the Three Lions last competitive inter-British Isles bout came against Scotland in this tournament in 1996; they won that 2-0.
Furthermore, first, and widely perceived as most dangerous, foes Russia have warmed up for the Euros by losing three of four friendlies against Croatia, France and the Czech Republic, conceding at least twice in all three games.
Based on this evidence, seven points is a very attainable target and it’s the minimum England should be aiming for.
With no other firm offering odds-against on them winning Group B at the time of writing, punters must take advantage of this excellent offer from bwin’s bookies in black and gold.
