Slovenia v England predictions and free football betting tips for Sunday’s Euro 2016 qualifying match from our expert football tipster.
Sitting pretty at the top of Group E, England travel to their nearest rivals Slovenia looking to rubber-stamp their spot at Euro 2016 next summer, here are our football betting tips.
In stark contrast to last summer's shambolic turnout in Brazil, England are in a terrific position at the summit of their qualifying group. Roy Hodgson's men have won all five of their games so far, and barring a spectacular collapse, should head to France as one of the top seeds.
Despite their fine run over the qualifiers, England have stalled slightly over their last couple of friendlies. Although, a 1-1 draw is nothing to be sniffed at away to a dangerous Italian side. The dire 0-0 stalemate with the Republic of Ireland last weekend was about as much fun as taking the bin bags out.
Opponents Slovenia find themselves in an encouraging position in the group and hold a slender advantage over third placed Switzerland. The crunch match will be next up as they travel to the Swiss, so even a point against England could prove crucial in the grand scheme of things.
Form wise, the Slovenians have a real mixed bag of results. Excellent victories over both Switzerland and Lithuania have been followed by expected losses to England and Columbia. However, most recently they slumped to a disappointing 1-0 defeat to lowly Qatar, a result that certainly doesn't offer much optimism ahead of their clash with England.
On paper, England should absolutely steamroll their opposition this weekend. However, you really never know what to expect when it comes to our national team, so I wouldn't exactly call this a banker away win. Nevertheless, their form over the qualifiers has been impressive and they have the best goal difference out of any of the teams in the Euro 2016 groups.
Our first Slovenia v England betting tip is for England to win, snap up the boosted 8/1 (from 10/11) at Paddy Power and get a refund if they don’t win!
Heading over to the correct score market, and with the match falling under Betfred's '1apiece' promotion, why not have a punt on a correct score for our next Slovenia v England bet. Considering only one of Slovenia's last 18 matches have seen a BTTS outcome, you'd have to feel pretty hard-done-by if they managed to pinch a goal against England. Therefore, the glut in me is optimistically eying up a 3-0 England win at 14/1 with Betfred. Judging by the amount of goals Wayne Rooney and co have already scored in the group, this result is not beyond the realms of possibility.
Our Slovenia v England correct score prediction is for England to win 3-0, take the 14/1 at Betfred.
Finally for a peek in the goalscoring market and Theo Walcott has finished the season in magnificent style for Arsenal and looks good value for a goal this weekend. Of course there are always doubts over the starting line-up, but back Walcott to score first under Betfred's 'DDHH' promotion at 11/2. If he doesn't start you may well get your money back, but also have a terrific impact player in the event of a potential 0-0 stinker.
Our third Slovenia v England prediction is for Theo Walcott to score first, he is 11/2 at Betfred and you get double odds is he scores two, treble odds for a hat-trick.
