Bookies Breathe Sigh Of Relief As England And France Draw

After a hard fought draw, William Hill were breathing a sigh of relief. As the game kicked off, 47% of all bets had been for Roy Hodgson’s men, with 39% of all bets being placed on France.

“We offered an industry top price of 5/2 about England, which punters were desperate to get on, while at the same time, France were also well backed by our more pragmatic punters. If we had seen a win for either side, we would have been paying out a seven figure sum,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

There were some top notch performances from the England players against France and William Hill are offering 7/4 that all eleven of tonight’s starting XI start vs Sweden with 11/8 offered for ten.

Danny Welbeck lead the line very well against France and he is 1/3 to start the match against Sweden and 6/5 to start the match against Ukraine. One person who did not impress, however, was the referee and Nicola Rizzoli is 16/1 from 7/1 to officiate in the Final.
