Betting: England 5/1 to beat Wales

The pressure is on Roy Hodgson's men, but will they deliver with a win over Gareth Bale and Co. in Lens? Betway go 5/1 on the Three Lions for anyone yet to open an account

England are Betway's 4/7 (1.67) favourites to win their second Euro 2016 match against Wales on Thursday afternoon. After only managing to draw against a Russia side that have subsequently been beaten by Slovakia, the pressure is firmly on the young squad to deliver a victory over their British rivals if they want to progress as Group B winners.

It's understandable if punters are unwilling to take the odds on quotes about the Three Lions but the price of 5/1 (6.0) available to all new Betway customers should certainly prove popular with those yet to open an account.

To claim these odds simply sign up using the links provided, back England at the usual price shown on site and if they win, the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value. What's more, if the odds on favourites fail to secure victory, anyone taking up this offer will get their stake back as a free bet.

Backers of Roy Hodgson's men in their opening encounter at around Even money (2.0) will feel aggrieved after a late equaliser cancelled out Eric Dier's well struck free kick but the nature of the performance certainly suggests there is more to come from this young, talented group.

The question of how best to accommodate Wayne Rooney is still a prominent selection dilemma for the former Liverpool and Fulham boss but with the attacking firepower at his disposal, there is plenty of potential for goals, even if the defence looks less than convincing.

Wales will be primed for an upset of course, buoyed by their opening triumph over Slovakia thanks to goals from Gareth Bale and Hal Robson-Kanu. Keeping the Real Madrid superstar quiet will certainly be priority number one for the England coaching staff and although the 26-year-old had limited opportunities from open play in the opening game, he demonstrated his dead ball prowess too.

This game feels like a litmus test for the potential of England's relatively inexperienced side but with 5/1 (6.0) quotes available from Betway, they could be a betting proposition simply too good to turn down ahead of this all-British encounter, especially with the free bet concession should they fail to justify their short price.
