Sterling worth a few pounds at 7s

Live on ITV: Weds 20.00: A Raheem Sterling opener is 7/1 (BetVictor) as England host Norway in an international friendly.

Whether it’s down to the timing of the game, which comes right at the start of the domestic football season or the fact that the team performed so badly at the World Cup over the summer, England’s friendly contest against Norway has failed to capture the public’s imagination and indeed, it could prove to be a record low attendance at Wembley.

Those supporters that do trickle through the turnstiles should at least witness a victory for Roy Hodgson’s men, who are Skybet’s 8/15 favourites to emerge triumphant while the visitors are BetVictor’s 7/1 outsiders.

Stan James post 3/1 against the stalemate, a price that might attract cash given that the Three Lions failed to register a victory at Brazil 2014 and it would be no surprise to see a few speculative wagers on a goalless affair at 21/2 courtesy of BetVictor.

Punters sensing goals can tackle a score draw at 5/1 (bet365), William Hill rate a 1-1 scoreline at 15/2 and it’s 5/1 at Stan James for the teams to be inseparable at the end of each half.

However, the Norwegians are in wretched form, a 2-1 friendly triumph at Moldova in January their sole victory in eleven attempts, a run that stretches back a calendar year. Subsequently, the hosts should ultimately have the edge and a case can be made for Ladbrokes’s 5/2, posted against a home win by a one-goal margin.

More precisely, Hodgson’s charges are 11/2 (BetVictor) to shade it 1-0 in a match punters seem keen to back at 17/20 via bet365 to produce fewer than three goals and Winner.com quote odds of 23/20 for England to prevail ‘to nil’.

Elsewhere, Paddy Power price the Three Lions at 11/2 to notch twice without reply, they’re 3/1 at Stan James to come out on top having gone in on level terms at the interval and just 9/20 (betway) to break the deadlock.

Bet365 meanwhile, rate Wayne Rooney at 4/1 to celebrate being installed as captain by grabbing that opener but in-form Liverpool attacker Raheem Sterling arguably represents better value at 7/1, this time at BetVictor.

England to win ‘to nil’ – 23/20 (Winner.com)
Raheem Sterling to score first – 7/1 (BetVictor)
