All the odds as Upson plays

After a superb victory in Croatia, England are in a great position to earn maximum points from their next two qualifying games, starting at Wembley on Saturday against Kazakhstan. With Matthew Upson replacing John Terry at the back, there is plenty of West Ham United interest. England are a restrictive 1/25 to win, while the visitors on offer at 27/1. The draw is 83/10.

There could be plenty of goals against in the game and if that is the case, it might be worth backing Fabio Capello's side on the Handicap. England are on offer at 17/20 to win by more than three clear goals, while it is 12/1 that they win 5-0 and it is 1/20 that they lead at half-time and full time.

Of his inclusion in the squad and the potential chance to replace John Terry, Upson said: "It's up to me at the moment, I have been given an opportunity and it's down to me and that's all I want. Lots of things can happen so I've got to keep hanging in there and improving and proving to the manager I can do the job."

That might be worth bearing in mind, particularly if you think there will be more than 2.5 goals scored in total in the game. You can back over 2.5 goals at 7/20 and under 2.5 goals at 17/10. A successful £25 bet at odds of 7/20 will see you walk away with £33.75.

West Ham United striker Craig Bellamy is also in action this weekend. The Wales skipper leads his country out in a 2010 World Cup qualifier against Liechtenstein at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday afternoon and JAXX make the Welsh 2/15 favourites. John Toshack's side are comfortable favourites, according to JAXX, who have Liechtenstein as 71/5 shots, with the draw at 11/2.

Bellamy said: "I've worked really hard on my rehabilitation and I still believe that the best years of my career are still to come. There is a lot more to come from me, I will only step away from football when I cannot do it any more."

JAXX have such confidence that Bellamy will help his country to victory that Wales are 4/5 to win by more than two clear goals on the handicap. Liechtenstein are 27/20 receiving a mythical two-goal start, while a victory for Wales by a two-goal margin is on offer at 11/4 (a Draw on the Handicap).
