England vs Hungary latest odds
Currently enjoying a 12-match winning streak in World Cup qualification on home turf, England are 1/6 (1.17) favourites with bet365 to extend that run to 13 with another victory here.
Hungary’s chances of reaching the play-offs were dealt a major blow by their 1-0 home defeat against Albania on Saturday but they can be backed at 14/1 (15.00) to resurrect some glimmer of hope by pulling off a shock win in London.
Just one of the 12 previous meetings between these two sides has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 6/1 (7.00) on them playing out a stalemate in this one.
England vs Hungary first goalscorer
Kept on the bench during the 5-0 win in Andorra, Harry Kane is the 9/4 (3.25) favourite to open the scoring on his return to the line-up, while Raheem Sterling is available at 4/1 (5.00) after breaking the deadlock in the reverse encounter.
With main striker Adam Szalai out injured, Daniel Salloi and Roland Sallai are the visitors’ equal 22/1 (23.00) front runners to silence the home crowd with a surprise opener for the away team.
England vs Hungary preview
Having taken seven points from the first available nine in Group I, Marco Rossi’s team were disappointed to lose 4-0 in the reverse encounter against this opposition in Budapest.
It is fair to say that the wheels have come off their qualification bid since then, with a narrow 2-1 home win over Andorra sandwiched between damaging defeats against play-off rivals Albania.
Those two strikes against Andorra – one from the penalty spot – are Hungary’s only goals in the last four matches, while they have now gone seven games without a clean sheet.
England vs Hungary betting tips & predictions
With the Three Lions back to full strength and boasting an intimidating home record in qualifiers, odds of 13/10 (2.30) seem generous on them beating this opposition by at least three clear goals once again.
