GB 5/2 For Narrow Opening Win

Live on BBC1: Thu 20.00: Great Britain are 8/13 (bet365) to beat Senegal at the Olympics and Skybet quote 5/2 for a win by 1 goal.

Stuart Pearce’s fledgling Great Britain team struggled for long periods against Brazil in their final warm-up game before the Olympics, going down 2-0 to Stan James’ 6/4 tournament favourites and they will need to improve if they are to be in with a chance of grabbing a medal.

Bet365 make Team GB 10/1 to clinch Olympic gold and they start their campaign tomorrow against Senegal at Old Trafford. Pearce’s charges are well fancied by bookmakers to kick off with a victory, bet365 pricing them at 8/13 to get the better of the west African nation, Stan James’ 6/1 outsiders, and it’s 14/5 courtesy of Skybet to finish all square.

Punters that witnessed last Friday’s performance might fancy Great Britain to struggle and BetVictor’s 13/2 for it to finish one-apiece could therefore attract cash, alongside the same firm’s 5/1 for scores to be level at the end of each half. However, Pearce’s troops haven’t been together for long and will have benefited from their weekend run out so they should be taken to edge out the Senegalese.

They’re 5/2 via Skybet to come out on top by a one-goal margin at the home of Manchester United, where Stan James mark 15/2 against the hosts carding a 2-1 triumph in a match that is even money (Ladbrokes) to see both sides find the net.

Elsewhere, William Hill quote odds of 11/2 for Team GB to grab the game’s only goal, Stan James rate the home side at 11/4 to emerge triumphant following a drawn first period and it’s 5/6 at bet365 for Pearce’s men to get on the scoresheet at least twice.

Daniel Sturridge meanwhile, has been well backed to contribute to that tally, BetVictor chalking the Chelsea man up at 11/2 to break the deadlock and at 5/4 to notch at any stage.
