England host Lithuania at Wembley this evening seeking a seventh straight post-World Cup win, with a microscopic 3/25 saying they’ll fell the eastern European minnows.
The former Soviet state haven’t scored in three successive international outings and only those with a willingness to squander their hard-earned will be going anywhere near the 28/1 that says they’ll spear the spoils in the home of football, while the draw at 31/4 is an equally frivolous punting venture.
Tonight’s match-betting buffet isn’t exactly laden with appetising offerings, but there’s one standout wager profit hunters can’t ignore.
An unfathomably good value 7/10 says the Three Lions will prevail and captain Wayne Rooney is on the scoresheet.
It’s a bet that returns £21 of risk-free profit if bettors invest their £30 free bet for opening an account with bwin.com this very day in the outcome and doing so will surely prove shrewd.
As stated, Roy Hodgson’s men have drastically upturned their form following a disastrous World Cup.
Their two defeats and a draw in Brazil are gradually being pushed to the outer reaches of fans’ memories thanks to the six successive triumphs recorded since the aforementioned South American calamity.
This sextet of success has brought four wins in Euro 2016 qualifying, with just one goal conceded across this spell.
England midfielder Jordan Henderson very kindly put through his own net against Slovenia in his side’s last competitive outing, which has been the only blemish on the campaign thus far.
Imperiousness such as this will ensure no troubles are encountered in attempts to topple Lithuania, meaning our pocket-lining aspirations hinge on Rooney and the stats indicate we won’t be disappointed.
The skipper has found the net in all bar one of the Euro qualifiers to date, though three goals in two non-competitive clashes against Norway and Scotland takes his international tally to seven in six for the season.
Manchester United’s talisman has fired four in three at the home of football as he encroaches on the all-time England goalscoring record, currently held by Sir Bobby Charlton.
The World Cup winner has 49 international strikes to his name, meaning Rooney, who heads into this one on 46, needs just four goals to complete the overhaul.
He’s 11/1 to break the record against Lithuania, which may be a little far fetched, but he could augment his tally to such an extent that the same price about him surpassing Sir Bobby in the friendly at Italy is worth a dabble.
