England & Germany at short odds to remain top of their WCQ groups

Sun, Mar 26, 6:41pm by Staff Writer

England is tipped to extend its lead atop World Cup qualifying Group F when it starts as the unbackable favourite against Lithuania early on Tuesday AEDT.

England has won three games and drawn one so far this campaign and looks set to add another three points at Wembley, where goalkeeper Joe Hart will become the team’s fourth in four matches with Wayne Rooney (unselected), Jordan Henderson (injured), and Gary Cahill (suspended) all unavailable.

“I’ve spoken about sharing the responsibility around the squad, and even some of the youngest players in the squad have been able to talk openly around the squad this week,” England manager Gareth Southgate said.

“Joe has shown great maturity in the way he has recovered from his own disappointment last summer.”

William Hill is paying just $1.12 for an England win, with a whopping $26 for Lithuania and $9 for a draw.

Group C leader Germany is on similar odds to extend its lead when it travels to Azerbaijan.

Germany is on a phenomenal international run, not only keeping a clean sheet throughout its World Cup campaign, but failing to concede a goal since its 2-0 loss to France in the 2016 Euro semi-finals.

The Germans are paying just $1.12 to win this week, with $23 for Azerbaijan and $8.50 for a draw.

Slovenia, currently just two points behind England in Group F, is in danger of giving up its spot when it travels to Scotland.

Scotland it expected to make the most of its home-ground advantage and is on $2.40 to take the points in its crucial match against Slovenia, which is on $3.40, with $3 for a draw.

If Slovenia does falter in Glasgow, Slovakia is waiting to take its second spot on the group standings.

The Slovakians, with six points from two wins and two losses, travel to last placed Malta, which is yet to earn a point.

Malta’s campaign will be as good as over if the bookies are right, with $1.10 on offer for a Slovakia win against $29 for a loss and $8.50 for a draw.

Still the favourite to win, but at more sporting odds, is Group E leader Poland.

The Poles will claim a six-point buffer with a win at second-place Montenegro, with the bookies making them $1.85 favourites to do so. Montenegro is paying $4.40 for the win with $3.40 for a draw.

In other matches, Northern Ireland is expected to retain second spot in Group C with a home-win over Norway. Northern Ireland is on $2.40 to win, with $3.30 for Norway and $3.10 for a draw.

The Czech Republic will put an end to San Marino’s World Cup ambitions, paying just $1.01 against $41 for the away win, with $17 for a draw to round out Group C.

Denmark can take second spot in Group E with a win at Romania.

Although expected to take the points, the Danes are favourites by the narrowest of margins at $2.70 against $2.80 and $3 for a draw.

Also in Group E, Armenia and Kazakhstan are battling for survival with the Armenians on $1.83 for the win, $4.50 for the loss and $3.40 for a draw.

Suggested Bet: Take Scotland to win: $2.40
