England has already wrapped up first place in Group E as they get set to host Estonia at Wembley on Friday. What kind of soccer odds are posted for this week's qualifying match?

Odds Overview
Along with Sweden, who will be playing Liechtenstein, the English are one of the biggest favorites out there in European Championship Qualifying this week. England is at anywhere from -625 to -750 to win outright, with an Estonia victory priced all the way up at +2100 and a draw approaching +500 on the soccer odds.


While it's absolutely fair to say England has disappointed on the international level in recent years, they sure have looked the part in qualifying. The English have won all eight of their matches while posting a goal differential of +23, with 26 goals scored and only three conceded.

With advancement to the next stage already ensured, we could see a little experimentation with the squad in the final two matches in Group E, but that remains to be seen.


We can't count Estonia out just yet. They're in fourth place in the group as of now, but they're only two points back of third and five points behind second. It's not over just yet.

In their first meeting with England in the group stages, the Estonians fell just short in a 1-0 loss at home. Wayne Rooney scored the lone goal in the 73rd minute, with Ragnar Klavan's red card early in the second half not helping the cause whatsoever. 


ECQ Pick
With Estonia still having a lot to play for, we know they're going to come out determined, but we're having a hard time picturing them getting a result at Wembley.

The truth of the matter is England is the far more talented outfit and has been downright dominant in the group stages so far. Though they've already wrapped up first place, they're going to want to put on a good show for their countrymen this Friday, and so we'll back them with our soccer picks here. To get more bang for your buck, consider backing Roy Hodgson's men to win by at least two goals.

Predicted Final Score: England 2 Estonia 0
