England 4/9 to avoid defeat against Italy on Saturday
Competition: World Cup
Market: England to win or draw against Italy
Odds: 4/9 @ Ladbrokes
England are hoping they can get their World Cup campaign off to a good start with some form of a result against Italy. The 2006 World Cup winners aren’t as strong as they have been in the past two tournaments, but will still pose a genuine threat to England’s inexperienced lineup.
Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson will name a side somewhat cautious, but also with plenty of players that can aid in the counter attack. England will take any result against Italy that isn‘t a defeat, as they’d consider themselves good enough to at least qualify from the group in either first or second place without having to win their opener.
Ladbrokes are backing England to do just that, with odds of 4/9. The last World Cup saw the Three Lions stumble over the line and into the next round following a poor group stage, and they aren’t expected to fair much better this time round with Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica all capable of making life very difficult for Hodgson’s men.
