International Betting Preview

5 September 2013

Don’t forget, when you place your wager with the Football League’s official sponsor, Sky Bet, you will also benefit Preston North End.

World Cup qualifiers dominate the betting spectrum, as England prepare to face Moldova at Wembley.

The Three Lions are 1/16 on to win the encounter with Sky Bet, and the away side are a massive 33/1 to cause an upset – while a draw is 14/1.

England won the corresponding fixture 5-0 in September 2012 as a brace from Frank Lampard, and further goals from Jermaine Defoe, James Milner and Leighton Baines, gave Roy Hodgson’s side three points in their bid to quality for Rio 2014.

And you can get odds of 17/2 on England repeating that scoreline on Friday night.

Last month’s debutant, Rickie Lambert, is 7/2 to double his England tally with the opening goal, after scoring in his first international match.

400 miles north of Wembley, Scotland host a star-studded Belgium outfit, which may well include new Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

The away side are 8/11 favourites to win with Sky Bet, while Gordon Strachan's team are 4/1 underdogs to spring a shock on the World Cup-bound Belgians. You can get the draw at 13/5.

Everton new-boy Romelu Lukaku is equal favourite to open the scoring, alongside Christian Benteke, at 5/1. Jordan Rhodes heads the home side’s potential scorers at 8/1. 

Elsewhere, the Republic of Ireland take on Sweden in Dublin, with the visitors 8/5 favourites to win the game. Giovanni Trapattoni’s side are 17/10 to win at home, while a draw is 9/4. 

The last time these sides met in Ireland, the home side toppled Sweden 3-0 – an outcome which is 28/1 to be repeated.

The world’s most expensive player, Gareth Bale, will travel with Wales to face Macedonia, though Chris Coleman’s side are 11/5 underdogs to get the three points on offer.
