Tonight's Betting Matchups and Picks for the Euro 2012 Qualifiers

Published on September 2nd, 2011

Euro 2012 logo - Poland and UkraineHuge night in European football tonight with Euro 2012 qualifiers on the line. A lot of matches tonight, with high hopes for some team and some possible upsets on the way. Lets look at some of the matchups taking place tonight.

England is away to Bulgaria and with not much room for error in this one for England, they will play with something to prove both to their fans and themselves. Bulgaria is not a good team right now, their top players are playing on and off in their clubs while the English squad seems strong right now, perhaps one of the strongest in years, with all the key players playing well for their clubs. England is on 11 points in group G, and is tied for a first place with Montenegro. They can ill afford to play catch-up to Montenegro after tonight’s matches so expect England to come out attacking in this one and taking all three points against Bulgaria.

In group A Belgium is traveling to Azerbaijan and with dead heat between them and Turkey in this group for second place, look for Belgium to dispose of Azerbaijan rather easily. Azerbaijan has been playing poorly while Belgium has been undefeated in the last five played. 1,42 odd on Belgium looks like pretty solid bet for tonight.

Big one on the menu tonight is the Republic of Ireland vs. Slovakia with both teams in a three-way tie for first place with Russia. So what will give here? Both teams are playing defensive football and not scoring much which was also the case when they last met with a 1:1 tie. Honestly speaking neither of these teams are really in good form and it was only the luck of the draw which gave them a real opportunity to qualify for the Euro 2012. Look for these two teams to focus more on defending their own goal rather than attacking so less than three goals should be a right bet for this match-up tonight. Bwin pays 1,55 for this bet tonight.

One upset that we are expecting tonight might come from an in-form Bosnian team facing Belarus away. With both teams still in the hunt for the first place currently held by France, this promises to be an entertaining match-up, but with the likes of Dzeko, Pjanic, and a returning goalkeeper from the English side Stoke, Begovic, look for Bosnians to outplay the Belarus in what will certainly be one of the most entertaining ties tonight. Bwin is paying a rather nice 2,8 odd for a Bosnian win tonight.

France is visiting Albania tonight and although Albania can be a tough opponent occasionally, there is too much at stake for the French in this one as they battle to maintain the first place in group D. The odd on French win tonight is 1,37 and should be an nice addition to your betting slip.

Here is the overview of tonight's pick:

Good luck tonight to all of you wishes the King…
