England are 11/1 for Euro 2012 ahead of this weekend’s friendly with Norway and to date we have hardly been inundated with bets for the Three Lions even with our money back offer if Spain retain their European crown.
Roy Hodgson’s men are 23/20 for their trip to Norway tomorrow; the hosts finished third in their Euro 2012 qualifying group behind Denmark and Portugal but only on goal difference did they not make a play-off spot. The hosts are 27/10 with the draw priced at 23/10.
Wayne Rooney conveniently sits out the friendly through injury given he will miss the first two Group games at the Euros and Hodgson must decide who will lead the line against France next month in Donetsk.
Andy Carroll, Danny Welbeck and Jermain Defoe are our 6/1 co favs to grab Saturday’s opener and we are betting on who will start against France. We don’t know if Hodgson will go with one or two up front against Les Bleus but we bet:
To make England starting XI v France:
Danny Welbeck 8/11
Andy Carroll Evens
Jermain Defoe 2/1
Frank Lampard 8/13
Joleon Lescott 7/4
Phil Jones 9/4
We have an enhanced treble of 80/1 for England to beat Norway, Scotland to beat the USA and Wales to win in Mexico;
The French Open Tennis tournament starts on the Paris clay on Sunday and we at BetVictor have a money back offer on the World Number 1 in the Men’s and Women’s tournaments. Place a bet on Novak Djokovic or Victoria Azarenka and if they lose we will give you your money back as a free bet. Given there are only three potential winners in the mens’ event this is an excellent offer.
The Monaco Grand Prix will see Lewis Hamilton bid to become the sixth different winner in 6 Grand Prix so far this F1 season and his luck must change sooner rather than later. He was forced to start the last race in Barcelona from the back of the grid having run out of fuel but in the circumstances drove a magnificent race finishing eighth on a two-stop strategy.
Hamilton is our 3/1 favourite for Sunday’s race which is the most famous of all Grand Prix on the narrow street circuit with overtaking difficult if not impossible; the key to the race as ever in Monaco will be qualification and Hamilton is taken to gain another pole. The former World Champion is 11/4 jt fav to regain the Title and that might look big after Sunday although the Lotus were, arguably, the quickest cars in Spain and Raikkonen (7/1) and Grosjean (12s) have had their supporters this week.
Note if you have a bet of £10 or more on the next 3 Grand Prix pre-race you will automatically go into a draw to win tickets for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in July.
