England are quickly becoming one of the most entertaining national sides in football, scoring 19 and conceding four in their opening four matches in Euro 2020 qualification.

Their last game – a 5-3 victory over Kosovo – was particularly enthralling, and it is with that in mind that I am once again selecting an England victory and Both Teams To Score (23/10 888). I backed this when they faced Bulgaria as well and while Gareth Southgate’s side managed a clean sheet that day, their opponents did have chances and Jordan Pickford was required to make four saves.

England did beat the Czechs by five goals to nil when they played at Wembley earlier in the year but that was the only time in their last 13 encounters that they have failed to score. They will surely be a tougher proposition in Prague and they must have taken great heart from how porous England have been at the back recently.

Ultimately, with a frontline of Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho, England should have too much pace, skill and finishing ability for the Czechs but I don’t expect them to win without scoring.

In truth, I would take a far smaller price, so the 23/10 (888) are offering looks huge, to me.

I have loved numbers and sport throughout my life, so betting was a natural step. I started writing my own betting column at university and have continued throughout my adult life. I bet on football, golf and the NFL mainly but two flies going up a wall could also capture my attention. I am a West Brom fan and also follow teams in other sports but I think it's fair to say that no side compare with The Baggies!
