BETTING PREVIEW – England vs Slovakia

Despite the shaky start, the three Lions could proceed to the knockout stages, top of the group, and with their unbeaten status intact. Slovakia will be looking to be a roadblock in England’s success, by collecting all three points they could also top group B.

Roy Hodgson has hinted that Jamie Vardy could be given the go ahead and lead the line for a reignited England side. I also fear for Harry Kane’s place in the starting eleven, with Daniel Sturridge scoring his dramatic late winner against the Welsh.

Jamie Vardy scores for England

England’s formidable new resolve has earnt them short odds to beat the Slovakians, many bookies are offering just 4/5. On the other hand, Roy’s new attacking mentality has stretched the odds for Group B’s surprise package, they can found at a generous 5/1.

England’s heroic duo can both be found at 9/2 to score the final goal of the match, whether that is a winner or not, we will found in due time. But with such attacking talents on the field, there is reason to be optimistic.

If your glass is half empty, then Slovakia’s odds of getting a win are sky high. A 1-0 will get you odds of 12/1. But if you fancy them to give the English a royal thrashing, they can found at an astonishing 30/1.

With goals increasing by the day at Euro 2016, it’s only a matter of time before someone claims a match ball, could an England player be the first to achieve this feat? Maybe so. Both Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy are touted to score a hat-trick at 50/1.

But England skipper Wayne Rooney’s odds are astronomical. Since the Manchester United man’s conversion to a central midfield the odds have really been shaken up. Wazza is 125/1 to score the first treble of the tournament, not bad considering he is likely to be on set piece duty once again.

Safe Bet – England to win 4/5

Long Shot – Wayne Rooney to score a hat-trick 125/1
