Being an England fan is never easy and the rollercoaster of emotions is quite the ride and if you bet on them to win, the ups and downs can be quite something to behold. We take a look at the latest odds in England markets on Betfred following the 3-0 win over Wales and progression to the Round of 16…
After the 6-2 beatdown of Iran in their opening game, England saw themselves move into 7/1 and second-favourites to win the World Cup in Qatar. A 0-0 bore draw with the USA saw the price drift but last night’s second half demolition of a relatively average Wales side has seen a small market movement.
England are now the joint-fourth favourites to win the competition with Argentina. Both countries have odds of 8/1 to be the last team standing.
We often see England at a slightly shorter price in the UK due to patriotic punters but the price over in Vegas is 17/2, so only a tiny bit longer.
Brazil have been the favourites for months and they have seen their price only get shorter since the tournament kicked off less than a fortnight ago. Tite’s team are now as short as 5/2 with France and Spain being the big market movers having come into 11/2 and 7/1 respectively.
Portugal (11/1), Germany (12/1) and Netherlands (14/1) are the only other sides with odds of less than 50/1. The biggest drifter among the teams that were considered genuine contenders has been Belgium who have been just flat out woeful in their opening two games. They can still qualify for the knockout stage but at 50/1, the punters aren’t being tempted to back Roberto Martinez’s side.
Next up for England is a Round of 16 game with Senegal on Sunday evening with Gareth Southgate’s side opening up as a 8/15 favourite to win the game. The draw after 90 minutes is priced up at 3/1 with Aliou Cisse’s side having odds of 15/2 to emerge victorious within normal time.
