Betting on England (-575 Moneyline)
What was turning out to be a disappointing draw with Tunisia turned out to be win that sent England nuts when Harry Kane struck gold and found the back of the net in stoppage time to get The Three Lions three points in a 2-1 win on Monday. And oh, by the way, Kane also scored the other goal for England. Hopefully for England, Kane’s heels are still going to be smoking this Sunday in Sochi against Panama, though, Kane is not the be-all and end-all man on offense for England. They also have the likes of Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, and Jamie Vardy to get the ball to up front in the anticipated showdown with Panama. England did a fine job controlling the game against Tunisia overall, taking 59 percent of ball possession top go with a 91 percent accuracy on their passes.
Betting on Panama (+1900 Moneyline)
Panama were simply overmatched in their opening match 3-0 loss against Belgium, though, that’s an assessment that ‘s more apt in describing the game’s second half as all of The Red Devils’ goals came in the second half. In other words, Panama showed it could hang with the best of them even for at least one half. That should give them some optimism heading into a match with England, who must still be feeling the euphoria of their win over Tunisia. Panama’s midfield and back line will have to hold and disorient England’s attacks, which is going to be easier said than done, but limiting chances for their opponents, as cliched and as redundant as it may sound, is truly going to be the key for Panama if they were to upset a huge favorite on Sunday.
England get the win, 3-0.
