Can England Get The Three Points They Need ?
ENGLAND v AUSTRIA Sat Oct 8 - 4:00 pm ko (BBC)
With England at prohibitive odds of 2/9 for a game that they should (must)win, the correct play could be in the goals markets. In the hope that we won't see Sven experimenting this time, we can expect a few goals from the anticipated Crouch / Owen combo up front (1/2 that they play up front together), which brought Owen a hat-trick against Colombia in the summer.
The Austrians are in disarray, with only Azerbaijan and Wales having failed to score against them in qualifying, while even Scotland managed to breach their defence in a recent friendly, so a bet on over 2.5 goals looks best here. At the same time, Michael Owen looks a fair bet at 7/2 to open the scoring, especially considering Bet365 will give you your money back if he scores the last goals in the game instead.

Best Bets : England v Austria - 'Over' 2.5 goals @ 6/5 / Michael Owen to score first @7/2
