FRANCE are a best 19-20 at Ladbrokes to win the World Cup Final in 90 minutes after Croatia ended England's glory run.
The Croats looked dead on their feet at the end after three periods of extra time in a row in the knockout stages.
France will benefit from having played 90 minutes fewer and an extra day's rest and I can't see them slipping up in Moscow on Sunday. I'm taking them now as the price might drop.
Croatia fought hard against England and after a poor first half they improved and probably just about deserved it. But whether they can raise energy levels against a French side packed with power and pace is doubtful.
England now face Belgium in the third/fourth-place play-off and the line-ups could be similar to those fielded in the groups when both were weakened. Reckon Belgium will win this courtesy of their extra day off and no extra time and they are 11-8 at Betway.
My Super Single was England and both to score while the Bonkers Bet was Stones or Maguire to net a header so both were losers.
On Thursday the attention turns to the Europa League qualifiers and I've posted a separate preview on the Rangers and Hibs games where my top tips are reasoned.
There are loads of EL ties to look at but I'll be at Gullane all day for the Scottish Open so won't be adding anything.
Well done to everyone who put up winners last night – especially Alan and Johnb with their racing tips – and good luck to everyone today.

  3. HullShaker 4 years ago

    Well done any winners last night – my corners bet never really got started in a strange old game but fair play England…they certainly progressed further than I thought they would!

    It’s just gone 0430am and I’m wide awake and sweating more than Craneguy filling in his latest gym renewal – managed to get a decent booking last night looking out over the Thames skyline but currently holed up in a room like the OD scene in Trainspotting.

    Thursday sees a break from the World Cup and to be honest that’s no bad thing – I much prefer a bit of obscurity…

    GRINDAVÍK VS. KA (1900 KO):

    No time for a detailed write-up but really like the look of both teams to net and possibly a bit of extras here – it’s landed in the vast majority of H2Hs on Grindavik’s patch and recent matches don’t persuade me otherwise:


    Best of luck!

    • mr_chips 4 years ago

      Can’t go against this. Chancing Over 2.5 Goals at 5/6 on Betfair

    • mr_chips 4 years ago

      Seems to be drifting the Over 2.5. The trend also favours BTTS so shall cover that also

    • mr_chips 4 years ago

      1-1 heading towards HT. well done

      Just needing one more goal which will hopefully come second half.

    nice piece of prediction from the punter who has the column on a Saturday in the Scottish Daily M@@l…..he went for a France -Croatia final pre event at odds of 100/1….me thinks he fancied Croatia outright at 40s…..

      Fekir is adamant he wants to join Liverpool,Lyon president has no problem with this but Liverpool haggling over the price,i’m pretty sure this transfer will happen.

    • elvis parsley 4 years ago

      If they don’t get him I’ve heard shaquiri from Stoke is another option.

    • maccathered 4 years ago

      Shaqiri signing is more or less done and dusted,he will only be a squad player,Fekir deal is on and he will be a Liverpool player.

    anyone any advice on goals tips for the europa league tonight….. looks like there could be some boring 0-0s and some goals galore. not being an expert on the top flights of the minor european leagues, im looking for a tip or two if anyone is a bit more clued up on their european leagues

    Afternoon Gents

    Had an enjoyable night watching the football down here, not becasue England got beat but having good banter with the english boys who just like the rest of us, love their country, support them and want them to do well

    Was actually gutted for them, England were absolutely rank rotten the entire second hald and the full 30 mins of extra time and got what they deserved sadly

    Europa League qaulifers tonight – always makes me sad as 5 times out of the last 6 years id have been away somewhere in europe watching the Famous Perth St Johnstone

    Its Hibs and Rangers that are flying the flag for Scotlansd tonight and both should win their respective home ties with minimal fuss. Yes its their first competetiem atch but they should still be too good for the minnows Macedonia and The Faroes.

    The Bookies certinly think so have priced them up ridiculosly short but there is still decent bets to be had on handicaps an gaol markets

    Rangers v Skopje KO 7.45pm

    Will be another big crowd at Ibrox for Steven Gerrard’s first competetive game in charge – things look on the up at Ibrox and there will be a real posititivty around the place. They should cruise this game and take a comfortable lead into the away leg next week.

    It may have only been a fredindly but there was a lot to like about their 6-0 win over Bury at the weekend (Think @hullshaker was in goal) they looked good and i can see them scoring some more goals tonight

    Back Rangers over 3.5 Team Goals 19/20 Coral

    In the other game Hibs should comfortbaly see off Runavik – I’m with Johnb and Mr F om Kamberi, in fact i think i started raving about him last season even before JohnB did, haha. He’s the signing of the summer and will hit 20+ goals for Hibs this season, expecting him on the score sheet tonight

    Over 2.5 goals 4 fold: All KO 7.45pm

    Cliftonville v Nordsjaelland
    Hibs v Runavik
    Lech Poznan v Kapan
    Rangers v Skopje

    Small interest in the Stjarnan v N Kalju match

    BTTS @ 5/6

    Nomme Kalju have hit EIGHT twice in last 2 games. Recent results read: 8-2, 8-3, 3-2, 2-2. They seem unbeaten in at least 14 games and scored 2+ in 13 of them

    Stjarnan won last 8 in a row but conceded in 6 of them. Stjarnan scored 2+ in 13/15

    The Icelandic hout came good and looking for a Brasilian to cap the night off…well, who isn’t ?

    Night Owl:

    LONDRINA VS. AVAÍ (2200 KO):

    Not a match that shouts out goals but despite a low scoring history, I reckon there’s a hint of value here; Londrina have scored in all but 3 of their last 10 games with Avai hitting the net in 11 of their most recent 16 on the road.

    I like Avai and they have let me down rarely for a goal so taking a punt on this:


    Best of luck!

    • HullShaker 4 years ago

      2 early goals from Avai! Plenty of cover for anyone on ??

      Nice one, just back from a long day at the golf at Gullane.
