There are two games on Monday and the less anticipated one has to be the one between England and Iceland. That being said, both teams have shown that they are capable of exciting things and it shall be exciting to see how this game turns out.

England have a lot of attacking talent but at the back they have plenty of problems in the defense. The likes of Kane and Vardy are superb at scoring goals and it will be important that they score goals because if they don’t, you can expect them to concede goals against and Iceland team that has scored a lot of goals already in this competition.

Iceland have been very impressive in this competition are they have an unbeaten record in this tournament. This is very impressive especially considering that this side was not supposed to make it out of the group stage. This must be a great feeling for the team and I expect them to play with a lot of freedom.

With all that in mind, I think there are two great bets in this game that are worth taking a look at. The first bet is in relation to the number of goals being scored. The over 2.5 goals is for sure the better bet here considering how much freedom either side plays their football with. I am expecting a high scoring encounter for sure and we should easily cross the 2 goals.

The second bet which we are interested in is the result of this game. I think Iceland will fight hard and as a result the draw seems like an amazing bet considering the great price we are getting. This is a riskier bet but considering how much we are getting on this bet I think it is surely worth the punt. 

Pick:
Over 2.5 Goals
