England v Bosnia Football Betting Tips 03/06/24

England v Bosnia football betting tips

England will host Bosnia and Herzegovina in the first of two warm-up friendlies before Euro 2024, so it’s time for our England v Bosnia Football Betting Tips. The Three Lions head into this friendly clash after some patchy form in the previous round of international matches. However, the hosts will hope to turn things around and put in a strong showing against a Bosnia and Herzegovina side that has lot plenty of recent matches. Can Gareth Southgate’s side make a winning start in their Euros preparations? This fixture kicks off at 7:45 p.m. on Monday at St James’ Park. It will be shown live on Channel 4.

Form and Team News

England had a near-perfect Euros qualification campaign in 2023, winning six and drawing two of their qualifiers. Yet the Three Lions’ form dipped after they qualified for the finals in Germany. A draw in North Macedonia (1-1) ended Euros qualifying. This result was followed by a 1-0 loss to Brazil and a 2-2 draw with Belgium in March’s friendly matches. Bosnia and Herzegovina failed to qualify for Euro 2024 after three wins and seven losses in Group J. The Balkans side lost their final four qualifiers, losing to Portugal (5-0), Luxembourg (4-1), Slovakia and Ukraine (2-1).

Jude Bellingham is unavailable for selection due to his role in Saturday’s Champions League final. Defensive pair Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are doubtful. Bosnia and Herzegovina have no injuries or suspensions.

Match Winner Bet

There is a gulf in quality between England and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the bookmaker’s match winner odds reflect this. Bosnia and Herzegovina have won just twice in their last 10 matches – both against minnows Liechtenstein. In addition, the Balkan outfit has failed to win in 15 of their previous 17 away, losing nine. The Dragons are considered big outsiders for this clash, with Betfair offering 17/1 odds for an away win. However, Bosnia and Herzegovina might take confidence from England’s three-match winless run, in which the Three Lions have drawn twice. Yet a draw also comes with long odds as QuinnBet is offering 15/2 for a stalemate. England are considered big favourites to beat Bosnia and Herzegovina on Monday. Southgate’s side have lost once and won six of their last eight at home. They are also unbeaten in 19 of their previous 21 on home soil. Ultimately, England is expected to control this clash and Coral has the hosts as 1/6 favourites to win.

Handicap Betting

As England are considered the overwhelming favourites to beat Bosnia and Herzegovina, picking a home handicap could be a better value selection. Southgate’s side have scored two or more goals in five of their previous seven at home, showcasing their attacking quality. In addition, the home side could exploit a leaky Bosnia and Herzegovina defence. The Dragons have shipped 13 goals in their previous four and scored three. As a result, there is decent value in picking England to cover a -1 handicap. Boylesports has the best odds for this pick at 1/ 2.

Anytime Goalscorer Bets

Both England and Bosnia and Herzegovina have some of Europe’s best players in their ranks, who can make a difference at St James’ Park. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s experienced forward Edin Dzeko is set to lead the line on Monday. The 38-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down recently either, bagging 21 goals for Fernabache this season. Dzeko has also been in decent international form, netting three goals in six starts this season. At 5/1 odds, offered by Bet365, backing Dzeko to score could be a good outside bet. Yet our top goalscorer pick is an England newbie who has been in sensational form this season. We are tipping Cole Palmer to score at any time against Bosnia and Herzegovina. Southgate is likely to provide several players with game time in a potentially rotated team, opening up a chance for players like Palmer to shine. The Chelsea man scored 24 goals in 35 starts at club level and ended the season scoring 13 goals in his final 13 matches. Backing Palmer to strike at St James’ Park comes with good value as Sky Bet is offering 11/8 odds.
