World Cup 2018 – Backing Gareth Southgate’s boys with England Specials Betting
World Cup 2018 is now almost upon us and speculation in the likes of work, schools, homes and pubs will soon give way to events as they unfold.
Unlike in many years, England go into this tournament without any huge expectations in the national media and among the majority of supporters, with a general acceptance that anything beyond the last 16 would be deemed a success.
It would appear that few punters are patriotic (or perhaps idiotic) enough to bet on England to win the World Cup in Russia.
11/10 Harry Kane to shine
Even so, there are still plenty of opportunities to have a bet on England at the World Cup thanks to the array of England Specials bets available. For example, on a basic level, Harry Kane is an 11/10 shot with William Hill to be England’s Top Goalscorer in the finals.
On the other hand, if you see the Three Lions drawing blanks in front of goal in all their games, then the 66/1 with Coral for there to be ‘No England Goalscorer’ will appeal.
It does seem to be widely accepted that England should be able to navigate their way through to the knockout stage from Group G, with a general belief that they’ll pick up six or seven points in doing so.
England to hit a six?
England’s ‘Total Group Points’ can be backed at the likes of Betway, with six points on offer at 5/2 and seven points at 11/4. You can get 7/2 on England securing maximum points or you could look to cash-in on a disastrous campaign by backing them to register zero points at 250/1!
When will England be knocked out?
England to be heading home after making the last 16 is the most likely outcome according to the online bookies, with 23/10 (3.30) the best available World Cup betting odds with MarathonBet. A quarter-final exit is next best at 12/5 (3.40) with the same company.
Other England World Cup Betting Special Offers
BetFred bookmaker also have a number of England World Cup Betting special offers, such as to score 12+ goals in the tournament at 4/1 or, taking history on board, they also have England to go out of the tournament on penalties at 8/1.
England to be eliminated by Germany at the quarter-final stage can be backed at odds of 13/2 but, for the eternally optimistic, you could always back England to beat Germany on penalties in the Final at a whopping 500/1!
