England are in action tomorrow (Friday) night when they face Estonia and Stan James go 1/7 that the Three Lions continue their 100% qualifying record with a victory.

That price is hardly backable although it’s worth noting that the Estonians haven’t scored away from home in qualifying and England’s defence has only conceded three goals in eight matches.

Therefore, Sky Bet offer a tempting 8/13 that Roy Hodgson’s team win to nil and it’s worth a dabble on the correct score market where we think 2-0 and 3-0 represent solid wagers.

The 2-0 can be backed at 9/2 (William Hill) and 3-0 is 17/4 (Stan James), with Estonia unlikely to cause many problems for an England team who will have the lion’s share of possession.

The Three Lions to lead at half-time and full-time is a 4/9 shot (Stan James) although there’s probably a touch more value in going for Draw HT England FT at 3/1 (William Hill).

Liverpool’s Danny Ings is likely to earn his first cap and the striker is 4/1 (Paddy Power) to open the scoring at Wembley, with Everton’s Ross Barkley available at 15/2 (bet365) on the First Goalscorer market and he might be given the nod based on the excellent form he’s shown in a Toffees shirt this season.

England are 1/2 (Sky Bet) to win the game with a -1 goal handicap which means victory by a two-goal margin will see the bet make a profit.

If you think there will be three goals or more, then backing Over 2.5 Goals could be the way forward and offer 4/7 that this happens.

Wales are on the verge of qualifying for Euro 2016 although Chris Coleman’s team are 3/1 underdogs with to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday evening.

The draw could be the best bet at 5/2 (Sky Bet), especially when you consider that the Welsh have yet to lose in qualifying, with Bosnia a best price 10/11 (bet365) to claim victory.

The Republic of Ireland face Germany on tomorrow evening and the bookies don’t rate their chances of getting anything, with BetVictor going 6/1 about the boys in green beating the world champions.

The Germans are 1/2 (Stan James) to claim the three points, with the draw available at 16/5 (William Hill) and that could be vital if the Republic are going to land a spot in the play-offs.

Scotland are in the same group and Ladbrokes offer 31/20 that they beat a Poland side boasting the in-form Robert Lewandowski who has scored an amazing 12 goals in four games to date.

The Poles are 7/4 (Paddy Power) to end Scotland’s hopes of making Euro 2016 by winning this game, with that man Lewandowski likely to be a popular pick at 9/2 (Ladbrokes) to fire his team in front with the first goal.

Australia were the big market movers in the Rugby World Cup after their comprehensive win over England on Saturday, with the bookies trimming the Wallabies’ odds on the outright market.

They are now 3/1 with BetVictor to win the tournament, with New Zealand still regarded as likeliest winners at 6/5 (Paddy Power).

Ireland are the shortest-priced team out of the Northern Hemisphere sides, with the boys in green a 10/1 chance with Stan James and they will bank an easier route to the final if they beat France on Sunday.

Australia clash with Wales at Twickenham on Saturday evening, with the two teams battling it out to see which side will finish top of Pool A.

Warren Gatland’s side are 5/2 (Sky Bet) to claim a table-topping victory which would give them an easier quarter-final clash, with many people enjoying a bet on the handicap market.

Wales are 10/11 with Winner to win with a +7 point start as they return to the scene of that famous win over England, although the Aussies were outstanding last weekend and Stan James go 10/11 about the southern hemisphere team with a -7 point handicap.

Ireland are 8/11 with William Hill to get one over the French and avoid a quarter-final clash with New Zealand, with Les Bleus 13/10 with bet365 to land the victory. Perhaps the best bet is to side with the Irish -2 on the handicap at odds of 10/11 (Ladbrokes).

Bets of the week: England to beat Estonia 2-0 (9/2 bet365) or 3-0 (11/2 Paddy Power).
