England vs Argentina Betting Odds

ENGLAND v ARGENTINA ODDS : Sa Nov 12 - 4.45 pm ko

by Nigel Ridgway of

There may be nothing at stake on Saturday but, given the fierce rivalry between the two teams, this match is unlikely to be played like a friendly. And with neither side rock solid at the back, and key defenders missing, we can expect some goals ('over' 2.5 goals comes in at 8/11 here at bet365).

As regards an outright bet on the game, neither England's poor record in friendlies and Argentina's recent away form inspires much confidence but, if you must bet on the result, the value could lie with England at 7/4.

England aren't the only team looking to rebuild their reputation with a win here against their old rivals. Since qualifying comfortably, the Argies have suffered three successive away defeats, the last two coming after a 3-1 win over Brazil in Buenos Aires. That inconsistency, along with the absence of some key players (Lionel Messi is suspended), makes Argentina opposable. The fixture should at least give us an indication of England's chances next summer, but even a victory against their old foes is unlikely to see a change in their current price of 8/1.

Live Game Pick: England @ 7/4. Visit Bet365 and claim a £100/$100 bet basket for new customers.
