There are some intriguing games to look forward to in the UEFA Nations League on Monday and there is plenty of value to be had in combining teams for a parlay bet.

<h2><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Spain - England Odds">Spain v England</a></h2><p>Spain have made a blistering start to life under new manager Luis Enrique, winning all three games in style. They beat England 2-1 away from home on his debut, so they should feel confident in their chances of beating Gareth Southgate’s men in Seville on Monday. After that win they thrashed World Cup winners Croatia 6-0 and then they won 4-1 away at Wales on Thursday. Barcelona’s Paco Alcacer, who is thriving on loan at Borussia Dortmund, scored twice against the Welsh and he could nail down a place up front alongside creative geniuses like Isco and Marco Asensio, while Rodri’s debut was sublime.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Rodrigo Hernández - or Rodri - was outstanding on his full senior international debut last night, as Spain brushed aside Wales:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;• 144 touches&lt;br /&gt;• 128 passes attempted&lt;br /&gt;• 127 passes completed&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Total control. &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Scouted Football (@ScoutedFtbl) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;October 12, 2018&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Soccer Odds Board">On paper Spain look like the best team in the world</a>, and they will be disappointed to have deliver such a limp performance at the World Cup, but their preparations were plunged into chaos when coach Julen Lopetegui was sacked on the eve of the tournament. Now they look happy and united, and they are the outright favourites to win the UEFA Nations League, well ahead of Belgium and world champions France in the betting. Southgate continues to pick youngsters for his England team and the results have been mixed. After losing to Spain, they beat the Swiss and drew away in Croatia. They are a good team, but getting a result away in Spain will be a tall order. Spain to win looks good here at -158 <a href=";book=William Hill" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Check This Top Rated Sportsbook">with William Hill</a>. It is also offering +160 on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals, which looks great as both teams are strong going forwards.</p><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3608546, "sportsbooksIds":[349,43,93,238,1096], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><h2><a href=";-herzegovina-vs-northern-ireland-3608559/odds/" target="_blank" title="Check Bosnia - Northern Ireland Odds">Bosnia v Northern Ireland</a></h2><p>An in-form Bosnia side are -166 with William Hill to beat Northern Ireland, and a Spain-Bosnia double looks pretty attractive. Juventus’ Miralem Pjanic runs the midfield with aplomb for the Bosnians and Roma’s Edin Dzeko is a handful up front. Those two will be the best players on the pitch by a comfortable distance in this game, and they have more than enough quality to lead their team to victory. Northern Ireland are a decent enough team, and they work hard, but they have a limited amount of quality going forwards. They have lost three of their last four games, whereas Bosnia are on a seven-game unbeaten streak and brimming with confidence. For more value on this game you could try Bosnia to win and under 4.5 goals at -137 or Bosnia -1 Asian handicap at +105 <a href=";book=Bet365" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Check This Top Rated Sportsbook">with Bet365</a>, while Dzeko to score at any time looks interesting at +125.</p><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3608559, "sportsbooksIds":[43,349,238,1096,93], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><h2><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Iceland - Switzerland Odds">Iceland v Switzerland</a></h2><p>Two underperforming teams will lock horns in Reykjavik on Monday night when Iceland host Switzerland. Heimir Hallgrimsson’s men picked up a very creditable 2-2 draw away at world champions France last time out, but they were left disappointed as they led by two goals with just four minutes left on the clock, only to blow it. They lost their previous four games, and they have now gone nine matches without a victory, a run stretching back more than a year. The Swiss have lost their last two games, but those defeats came at the hands of strong teams in England and Belgium, and they only lost narrowly. <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Picks &amp; Predictions">Last month they battered Iceland 6-0 in this competition</a>, so they should have a massive psychological advantage heading into this contest. In that game they enjoyed 63% of the possession, their passing was excellent and they had 21 shots on the Iceland goal. They are unlikely to win quite so emphatically on the road, but they have enough quality to get the job done against a somewhat deflated Iceland side. Switzerland are -125 to win this one with Bet Stars and various others, and that looks really tempting.</p><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3608538, "sportsbooksIds":[238,1096,43,349,93], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p>
