Match Betting (1x2)

The bookmakers are clearly in no mood to take on an England team who can now be regarded as among the best in the world. It has been four straight wins for the Three Lions in the Euro 2020 qualifiers to date and these results came after Gareth Southgate’s side qualified for the Nations League finals.

Ladbrokes are among those firms who go 4/9 about England making it five wins from five games, with the visitors likely to be a popular accumulator selection and we should bear in mind that they comfortably beat the same opponents at Wembley a few months ago.

The Czech Republic currently sit second in Group A after landing nine points from their five games played thus far and a shock victory would give them an enormous boost as they look to qualify ahead of Kosovo.

They can be backed at a best price 13/2 with Paddy Power to win this encounter and they will be encouraged by the way that Kosovo were able to serve it up to England in the recent clash at Wembley.

For those looking to back the draw, this is available at 18/5 with William Hill and there’s the possibility that this match ends all square considering that England don’t desperately need to win as they’re sitting in such a comfortable position.

Manager Gareth Southgate will also be aware that Premier League clubs will want their players back feeling fresh and there’s likely to be plenty of different personnel used as a result.

First Goalscorer

There are two England players who have both scored six goals during Euro 2020 qualification and the first port of call is to consider Harry Kane who might enjoy being away from his club Tottenham after a horrendous week for the London club.

Kane has been delivering for his country since being called up for the Three Lions and he’s likely to be a popular order to score first in this clash, with Unibet going 11/4 that he breaks the deadlock.

We need to bear in mind that Kane will also be on penalties and England seem to be awarded plenty of spot kicks, although Raheem Sterling is currently matching his compatriot at the moment and the Manchester City man is slightly bigger on the First Goalscorer list.

Unibet have 22/5 that Sterling scores the first goal of the game, with Mason Mount also looking an interesting bet for those that want a bit more juice in their price and the Chelsea midfielder has been playing in an advanced role for his club.

Asian Handicap

For those that find the match odds uncompetitive, there’s the alternative of the Asian Handicap market and that’s especially good if you have a strong view for how the game is going to unfold.

England are a 3/4 chance with Unibet off an Asian Handicap of -1 and the Three Lions simply need to win by two goals or more in order for this bet to cop. It should be noted that they beat the Czechs 5-0 in the reverse fixture.

With this bet, you would also get money back if England win by a single goal so you have a nice amount of insurance as a result.

Alternatively, those feeling more confident about England’s chances can get 11/8 with Unibet that the visitors overcome a -1.5 handicap which would mean they need a victory by two goals or more in order to profit.

Unibet go 14/5 about England -2 and that would mean you need a three-goal margin of victory in order to win although a two-goal win would mean money back.

Both Teams to Score

England have only been on the road once in this group and that ended in a 5-1 victory in Montenegro, with Unibet offering 23/20 that both teams find the net during the ninety minutes here.

The Czechs have been full of goals on home soil considering they have plundered five in the space of two games, with the team also managing to score in two of their three away matches.

The only game in which they have failed to score is England away and perhaps they will run into a brick wall once again.

You can get 5/6 with BetVictor about the “No” option when it comes to Both Teams to Score, with a slight preference for the former option considering that England were leaking goals at Wembley when they last played a Euro 2020 match.

Over / Under Goals

Unibet offer 19/20 about Over 2.5 Goals and we think this is a fair price considering that England are a very attack-minded team who have scored nineteen goals in four games thus far.

Therefore, it’s perfectly plausible that they will cover this line themselves, while you could even chance your arm and back Over 3.5 Goals at 5/2 with the same firm considering that four goals being scored could be on the cards.

For those that think the Three Lions might be a little more cautious in an attempt to keep a clean sheet, then Under 2.5 Goals is available at 19/20 with William Hill, although we’re erring towards a high-scoring clash.

Correct Score

If you think history will repeat itself, then another England 5-0 victory can be backed at 55/1 with BetVictor and we can see the Three Lions once again filling their boots although it might be more modest considering they are away from home.

An England 3-1 win looks like a decent runner for this game and that has been chalked up at 13/1 with BetVictor, with Messrs Kane and Sterling looking to rack up more goals in their race for top scorer in the group.
