England v Brazil: betting guide


1st, June 2007


ronaldinho-brazil-15.jpgIf you fancy wasting, I mean investing some cash in tonight’s England v Brazil friendly at Wembley (coverage begins at 7.30pm on BBC 1), then step into our office…
Match to be a draw (11-5)
A friendly against Brazil is never a typical friendly, and you can bet that England will take tonight’s match seriously. But Brazil have enough talent to hold England and a draw seems the value at 11-5.
Half-time/full-time: England/Draw (11-1)
England can start fast with a goal in the first half but they are shit at holding onto leads and I can see Brazil equalising in the second half. 11-1 is a nice price for England to be leading at half-time and the end result to be a draw.

Correct score to be 1-1 (9-2)
For the same reasons I’ve tipped the above two bets. A score draw just seems the most likely result to me.
First goalscorer to be David Beckham (12-1)
If you believe in footballing destiny… have a saver on John ‘lead from the front’ Terry to score first at 25-1.
