England v Malta Euro Qualifiers Betting Tips 17/11/2023
England take on Malta in their final Group C contest at Wembley this Friday, so time for our England v Malta Euro Qualifiers Betting Tips. The Three Lions have already confirmed their place at Euro 2024 following an unbeaten campaign. Moreover, Gareth Southgate’s side can seal top spot with just one more point. Malta come into this clash after a winless qualifying stint so far and will be up against it in London. Can the Three Lions sign off their impressive qualification run in style? This game kicks off at 7:45 p.m. and it will be shown live on Channel 4.
Form and Team News
England come into this fixture off the back of an eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions, with seven wins. Southgate’s side have won their last three after beating Scotland (3-1), Australia (1-0) and Italy (3-1). The victory over Italy in October sealed England’s spot at Germany 2024. Malta has lost all seven qualifiers in Group C. Moreover, the Reds are on a three-match losing streak after defeats against North Macedonia (2-0), Italy (4-0) and Ukraine (3-1).
In terms of team news, England will be without Jude Bellingham and Levi Colwill, who both withdrew from the squad due to injury. Malta has no injuries or suspensions.
Match Winner Betting
Given the gulf in FIFA rankings and squad quality between England and Malta, the bookies have one clear favourite. Firstly, a Malta win comes with incredibly long odds at 150/1, provided by SkyBet. However, as the Reds have lost their last 16 Euro qualifiers, the odds appear justified. At 35/1, offered by betfair, a draw seems like a more feasible outcome. Although, England have draw once in their last 11 and Malta have not had a stalemate in their last 10. Therefore, our tip is to back an England win at Wembley. The Three Lions have won their last four home games and beaten Malta in all six previous encounters. Bet365 have the best odds for a home win currently at 1/66.
With an England win likely against Malta, picking a better value market is a better option and a handicap pick could be the best bet. England have scored 13 goals in their last four home matches, including a 7-0 thrashing of North Macedonia in September. Also, Malta has conceded seven goals in their last two qualification matches and scored just once in their last six. Ultimately, we are expecting a dominant England win and the Three Lions can create chances. At 8/11 odds, provided by betfair, England to cover a -3 handicap appears a better selection compared to an outright win.
Anytime Goal Scorer Betting Tips
Due to Malta’s lack of recent goals and the fact England could produce a commanding display, we are backing two potential goalscorers from the Three Lions ranks. First, a value bet would be Harry Kane to score anytime. The England skipper has hit top form for Bayern Munich recently, notching seven goals in his last three. But Kane has also been consistent during Euros qualification. In six matches, Kane has scored eight goals. Therefore, Kane is our first pick in the anytime scorer market in this fixture and Betfred is offering 3/7 odds. Alternatively, a better value pick, and our goalscorer selection for this match, is Bukayo Saka. In Euros qualifying, Saka has scored four goals in five matches, which all came at home. Due to this, we are tipping Saka to score again and Betfred is offering decent returns at 4/5.

Handicap Bet – England win -3 – 8/11 with Betfair
Anytime Goalscorer Bet – Saka – 4/5 with Betfred
England will want to end their qualification campaign on a high in front of a home crowd. The Three Lions can comfortably defeat an out-of-form Malta side, and a one-sided home win is our pick for this clash.
