Three Lions betting frenzy - Punters back in love with England as qualifiers begin

Three Lions betting frenzy - Punters back in love with England as qualifiers begin

Southgate's side are being backed in all key markets ahead of Czech Republic game.

For so long the England national side was something we endured, not celebrated. But it seems this time is different, with a quarter of all bets in the Euro 2020 winners market this month going on the Three Lions.

Four years ago, England were 9/1 to win Euro 2016, while in 2012 they were a huge 10/1. But ahead of Friday’s Group A game against the Czech Republic at Wembley, you can get a best price of 15/2 for what will be 54 years of hurt coming to an end.

France are the 4/1 favourites, but they’ve picked up just 11% of bets, with the Netherlands (12/1) perhaps surprisingly completing the top three with 9% of bets.

The Three Lions are as short as 1/8 to top their group, with the Czech’s second favourites at 10/1 best price.

Despite the small odds, 80% of total group winners bets are on England, with nothing but a routine campaign expected from Gareth Southgate’s side.

It's 3/10 that England win their fourth game in a row tonight, and 64% of punters are backing just that. People are daring to dream again, but this time there might just be some substance behind it.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Gone are the days of international breaks being greeted by a groan and a switch of focus to whatever other sporting action may be on; England fans are buzzing to spend a Friday night with Gareth and the boys. 

"That's reflected in the odds and the betting patterns, although England teams of the past haven't coped too well with expectation."
