England vs Moldova – World Cup Qualifiers Betting Preview and Tips
England play Moldova this Friday 6th September, with the kick off at 8pm and the match being shown live on ITV1. It is vital that England get the 3 points in this World Cup qualifier, having drawn 3 matches already in the group. England have already played Moldova once in the group, winning 5-0 in Moldova last September and it is not expected that Moldova will put up too much opposition this time.
England vs Moldova Outright Betting
England 1/14 (BetVictor)
Moldova 40/1 (Coral)
Draw 12/1 (Bet365)
The bookies have priced England up as massive favourites and rightly so, England have won their last 3 meetings with Moldova at an aggregate score of 12-0, so we are expecting another relatively easy win here.
England vs Moldova First Goalscorer Betting
Daniel Sturridge 10/3 (Bet365)
Jermain Defoe 4/1 (Bet365)
Danny Welbeck 4/1 (Bet365)
Rickie Lambert 5/1 (Bet365)
Theo Walcott 5/1 (Skybet, Ladbrokes)
Frank Lampard 6/1 (Various Bookies)
Steven Gerrard 7/1 (Coral)
Ashley Young 8/1 (Skybet, Ladbrokes)
James Milner 12/1 (Paddy Power)
Leighton Baines 14/1 (Various Bookies)
Wayne Rooney is injured with a bad cut to his head, so the main striking berth should be taken by the in-form Daniel Sturridge he is carrying an injury though so we advise caution on bets on him until the team news is finalised.
We like Danny Welbeck here, he has a good knack of getting important goals for England, has started the season in very good form and looks to be fit unlike some of the others.
1st Goalscorer – 2 pts on Danny Welbeck @ 4/1 (Bet365)

Looking at the last 3 fixtures between England and Moldova, they have ended 3-0, 4-0 and 5-0 in that order, so if you are looking for England to carry on that pattern then go for a 6-0 win at 22/1 with Sportingbet!
Aside from the 5-0 mauling to England, Moldova have actually fared quite respectably in the group, with their last result being a 1-1 draw with Poland and they only lost 2-1 to Ukraine and 1-0 to Montenegro. So they are by no means the whipping boys of the group, so it might pay off to go for a low-scoring England win. England are also not necesarily the most solid defensively with only one clean sheet in their last 8 games – that being against San Marino, so we are going to recommend the following correct-score bets:
1pt on 3-1 to England @ 18/1 (Ladbrokes)
1pt on 2-0 to England @ 11/2 (Coral)
1pt on 2-1 to England @ 20/1 (BetVictor)
