Tips for tonight – World Cup, Úrvalsdeild

Saturday football action is set to continue and we take a look at some nice selections for your consideration.

Both Teams to Score

England and Sweden have plenty of history and for many years the Three Lions could hardly find a win against their opponents. England have won two of their last three meetings whereas prior to that they had gone for 43 years and 12 fixtures without a win against the Scandinavian country. Sweden are direct and they have two powerful strikers and this is not good for England as three of the four goals they have conceded at this tournament have come about via crosses, including the penalty Kyle Walker conceded against Tunisia. For this reason there should be chances at each end and backing Both Teams to Score looks to offer value at odds of 2.20 here.

Anytime Goalscorer

Harry Kane has not disappointed so far in this tournament as his penalty against Colombia ensured that he has scored in all the matches he has started for England during the World Cup. He has also scored every time he has led his team as the captain and already has six goals in total since the World Cup begun. He makes an excellent choice for our Anytime Goalscorer market at odds of 2.15 here.

Double Chance X2

The last time Russia met Croatia was in Rostov in 2015 in a friendly fixture that ended with a 3-1 score line in favour or of the visitors. Russia were made to chase the ball around for 120 minutes against Spain and they will be fatigued. Croatia for their part are likely to dominate possession with the aim of sinking the Russian energy reserves. To this end they have a formidable midfield who are able to keep the ball. There is value in backing a Double Chance for Croatia to Win or Draw placed at odds of 1.25 this way.

Away Win & Over 2.5 Goals

Stjarnan have managed to win three of the last five encounters between them and Keflavik. They will want to extend that when the two face off in their league clash. Stjarnan have seen Over 2.5 Goals in 82% of their matches this season. With three of Keflavik’s last four home matches seeing a defeat and Over 2.5 Goals, there should be value in backing an Away Win and Over 2.5 Goals here at odds of 1.80.

Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score

FH Hafnarfjordur have managed to win four of their last five encounters with Grindavik. There is every chance that we are in for a high scoring encounter. FH have seen four goals in total in half of their home matches this season and they have also scored in six straight Urvalsdeild matches. The hosts have seen both teams score in all but one of their last five outings of their home matches. Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score is placed at odds of 1.90 and you can back that here.
