Ukraine-England Betting Preview: Back Three Lions to devour hosts in Kiev

Mykhaylo Fomenko’s men will be hoping to make home advantage count against their opponents in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifiers

Ukraine welcome England to Kiev on Tuesday as the European qualifying series for the 2014 Fifa World Cup continues.

Three Lions come into this match after recording a solid victory against Moldova on Friday night with Manchester United’s forward, Danny Welbeck grabbing a brace while the hosts destroyed San Marino 9-0.

Surprisingly, England are 13/8 (2.62) with Ladbrokes to take home all three points. Mykhaylo Fomenko’s team not minding their terrific wins in their last four qualifying series are underdogs with Ladbrokes to win before their home fans. They are priced at 9/5(2.80) to record a win. The same firm fancy the draw at 9/4 (3.25) .

England will be hoping to consolidate their lead in Group H following former leaders, Montenegro’s draw on Friday. Just one point separates the English and the Ukrainian with just three matches left to play.

 The visitors though will be missing the services of Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck in this game, Roy Hodgson's side have a host of in-form strikers and they should feel confident that they can win, a result which would see punters make a healthy profit given the attractive price.

Southampton’s Rickie Lambert and Jermaine Defoe are joint favorites to find the back of the net first at 6/1 (7.00) and 7/4(2.75) to score at anytime. Should the host dream of scoring, it will likely come off the boot of Andriy Yarmolenko who is priced at 7/1 (8.00) with Arsenal’s inform goal poacher, Theo Walcott.

With the array of talents England boasts of in the attack, you can back them to go goal crazy between two to three goals at 15/8 (2.87).

Backing Ukraine to win with a -1 handicap at 5/1(6.00) is a bet that stands out at an attractive price. Punter seeking for a value bet should expect Ukraine to win either half at 9/10 (1.90).
