Euro 2016 Betting Preview with Betway

England v Wales is one of the standout games of Euro 2016
  • England play Wales in Lens today, KO 2pm BST
  • The Three Lions are 8/15 favourites
  • Gareth Bale is 13/2 to score the first goal

The British clash between England and Wales in Lens later today is one of the standout games of Euro 2016. Coinciding with the start of the US Open golf AND Ladies Day at Royal Ascot, it could be one of the biggest betting days in history.
 
Betway offer England as very strong 8/15 favourites, despite Wales having a two point advantage in Group B - courtesy of their win over Slovakia. Russia pegged England back in the final moments on Saturday and a draw in this game is 3/1. The Welsh can be backed at a generous 6/1.
 
Gareth Bale scored a great free-kick on Saturday and he features in a number of Betway specials. The Real Madrid star is 13/2 to score the first goal of the game and just 9/2 to be awarded 'Man of the Match' an unusual scenario in which a player is shorter for that market than his team's odds to win the game.
 
James Collins may get a run out for Wales, most likely from the bench - he can be backed at 22/1 to score at any time in the game. For England, Harry Kane heads the market for the first goal at 7/2 and can be backed at 5/1 to score at any time in an England victory.
 
England were drifted to 9/1 to win the tournament after drawing their opening game, with France remaining as favourites at 100/30. Dimitri Payet has been cut to an astonishing 100/30 favourite to be crowned UEFA Player of the Tournament as Europe finally begins to understand! It's 8/1 that the Hammer of the Year top scores in a double of France lifting the trophy
