England V Wales 08/10/20 Football Betting Tips

First up, I'm not a massive fan of tipping football friendlies.

Quite often the respective managers put out experimental sides, and there also can be numerous substitutions.

This could well be the case with this match. England are already without regular left back Ben Chilwell, and there is also no Jadon Sancho or Tammy Abraham (who might have been looked at in this match).

The trio have been left out of this match for breaking Covid-19 restrictions last weekend.

Wales are without their two star players, with Spurs' Gareth Bale, and Aaron Ramsey of Juventus, both missing out.

Bale is injured, while Ramsey is isolating after members of staff at Juventus tested positive for Covid-19.

With that in mind, there's a good chance Wales at the very least will be playing an experimental side.

Match Betting

This seems to be reflected in the odds, with Ryan Giggs' side at 7/1. It's hard to make a case for Wales without Bale and Ramsey, even at those odds.

With it being a friendly, 2/5 is probably a touch too short to back England - even though I think Southgate's side will win.

For this bet to win, England have to win, with 2 goals or more scored in the match. So it could be 2-0 to England, or 3-1 to England.
