England head into the third match of the European Qualifying campaign against San Marino looking to keep up a 100% record and we have some free football betting tips.
You know what they say about their being no easy games of football well there are exceptions to this rule in international football. San Marino are one of these exceptions. Frankly, it is a farce that the likes of San Marino, Gibraltar, Lichtenstein and Luxembourg clutter up the international schedule like this with meaningless games and the outright match odds reflect this reality. The San Marino win is available at 100/1 with bet365. The draw is available at 40/1 with bet365 whilst the England win is available at 1/100 with William Hill.
As those odds suggest every bit of logic and common sense says that England are going to win this game. At odds of 1/100 though I'm not going to suggest backing them though the value simply is not there.
There are some bets that do tempt however. To start with I'd look at handicapping San Marino by giving them a six goal head start. San Marino plus 6 is available at 5/4 with Ladbrokes. With a six goal head start San Marino should feel very confident. If England get four or five goal in front they will take their foot off the gas and find themselves content to just pass the ball around and kill the game off. Furthermore, I simply just struggle to see a Roy Hodgson England side scoring enough goals to overturn a six goal deficit.
The set of bets that interest me involve Wayne Rooney scoring. The biggest difficulty in betting on international friendlies or international matches involving the like of San Marino is substitutions. England are going to get two or three goals ahead and substitutions are going to be made to keep legs fresh and give fringe players an opportunity to play. Clearly presents problems when you look to bet on a goalscorer.
Rooney is a special case here though. Thanks to his three match suspension and Manchester United's lack of European football Rooney will not be playing any club football until November at the earliest. Consequently, you would think he would play 90 minutes here against San Marino. Rooney to score two or more goals is available at 4/5 with Bet365. If you fancy a bit more risk though the Rooney hat-trick is available at 5/1 with Betfred.
