<p style="text-align:center"><span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:1em"><br />Is there anyone who is as excited by the World Cup qualifiers as your Humble Handicapper? Why,yes: Mrs. Richardson, because she’s been promised new shoes from the winnings of my <a target="_blank" title="Free Soccer Picks" href="/soccer/">soccer picks</a>.</span></p> <p>This game should pretty much be a foregone conclusion, as <a target="_blank" title="Soccer Picks: England vs. Moldova" href="/soccer/free-picks/soccer-picks-england-vs-moldova-a-26442/">the last time that England played Moldova they came out 5-0 winners</a>. A repeat of that score is available at 9/1, while England to win is a funny 1/20, a draw is at 12/1 and a Moldova victory is valued at 28/1.</p> <p><strong>Obvious really…</strong></p> <p><img style="font-size:1em" src="/picks-pictures/EnglandMoldovaWCQSoccer_September2013_200.jpg" class="imgSelectedPicture article-image" alt="Image preview" id="ctl00_head_ArticleAdministrator_picturePreview_imgSelectedPicture" />Looking at the last five games these sides played it certainly favours England. The three Lions are undefeated in their last five games. They do have a draw sandwich, with three even games in the middle with two slices of victory either side.</p> <p><strong>Friends and enemies</strong></p> <p>Three of those games were friendlies and England conceded five goals in those friendly games, but thankfully they scored six.</p> <p><span style="font-size:1em">By comparison, Moldova did win in their latest game, which was a friendly against Kyrgyzstan.</span></p> <p>They found it considerably less easy in the qualifiers drawing one and losing the previous two. They even managed to down 1-0 against Montenegrin at home in March. In fact, Moldova haven’t managed to keep a single clean sheet in any of their last five games and have conceded eight goals. </p> <p>England in their last five have kept just one clean sheet -against San Marino- so I don't think you should necessarily expect either side to keep a clean sheet when they meet.</p> <p><strong>Other odds worth checking out</strong></p> <p>England are 4/72 to win Group H while Moldova run as high as 1000/1 in the <a target="_blank" title="Betting ODds" href="/betting-odds/soccer/">soccer betting odds</a>.</p> <p>Moldova have faced England three times, once was in this competition (mentioned above) and the other were ahead of the France '98 World Cup. Back then, they lost 3-0 at home in 1996 and 4-0 away in 1997; a repeat of those scores is available at 9/2 and 5/1.</p> <p>Don't forget to include the home side went unbeaten for the 2012 European Championships and last lost a qualification match back in the 2009 when they went down 1-0 against Ukraine.</p> <p><span style="font-size:1em">[gameodds]36/227626/?r3=349-19-192-43-999997-118-238-227/us&amp;r-1=349-19-192/us[/gameodds]</span></p> <p><strong style="font-size:1em"><span style="font-size:1em">Woy Woy Woy!</span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-size:1em">England and Roy Hodgson is a pretty scanty outfit and I think it's highly unlikely that Moldova will get anything other than a lesson this Friday.
