Do you fancy betting on England to beat Slovakia at a whopping 5/1 and also, separately, Jamie Vardy to score in the match at 8/1?
Those are two enhanced odds offers from different bookies for the Slovakia v England game on Monday (8pm, televised live on ITV1). It is England’s final Group B game of Euro 2016, after which it gets serious as the knock-out stage of the tournament begins.
- Paddy Power Bookmaker go a boosted 5/1 about England to win this match, even though the normal odds are about 3/4. Certainly England are now full of confidence after controlling possession against a Wales team that just sat outside their goal and defended a slender 1-0 lead. After Gareth Bale slotted home a long-range free kick, which Joe Hart should have saved, the Welsh just parked the bus and defended. England took full advantage of the Welsh negativity and won the game 2-0, thanks to goals from Jamie Vardy (pictured) and Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge made the difference in the 92nd minute after England’s massive possession advantage finally told.
- Jamie Vardy is the subject of the second enhanced odds bonus offer, this time from Coral Bookmaker. That is 8/1 about Vardy scoring at any time in this match against Slovakia. The normal odds are around the 6/4 mark. You also get a fiver of free bets if this offer loses.
Vardy was the scorer of the first England goal, having finally been brought on after a frustrating first half for England. His impact was immediate in a side that, until that time, had lacked cutting edge with the substituted duo of Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane proving fairly toothless.
Hopefully England manager Roy Hodgson has learned from his mistakes and perhaps adopts the attacking line-up that served him so well in the second half from the start. However ‘reactive’ Roy may find it hard to abandon hiss conservative policies until England have their backs to the wall.
As for Slovakia, while nobody could point to the country on a map, their team does often find the back of the goal. They are no pushovers. Nevertheless a team of England’s pedigree should prevail and score a few goals in the process, with title-winning Leicester City’s hero Jamie Vardy amongst them.
