England and Wales don’t kick off until tomorrow afternoon but the boffins at Free Super Tips have crunched the numbers and believe they have found out what the result will be, after simulating the game 1,000 times.
The betting tipster site figured out that England would score once (simulated 328 times) and Wales would come up with nothing (555 times) the common result.
Jamie Vardy, who’ll be raring to start having been left out of the side who drew to Russia on Saturday, was the most likely goal scorer having bagged 516 goals across the 1,000 games, indicating the Leicester hitman has over a 50 per cent chance of finding the back of the net.
Kyle Walker made 298 assists during the simulation – more than any other player – and also picked up the most Man of the Match awards in over a third of the games.
If you’re feeling confident then Betway are willing to put up the odds at a whooping 5000/1 for the exact result to play out, with Vardy scoring the goal, Walker picking up the assist and man of the match award, and three yellow cards dished out.
Jake Apperley, Director of Free Super Tips confidently backed the study:
“5000/1 was the price given to Leicester winning the league last year and the bookmakers are still hurting. Unlike the Foxes’ magical season, our researched match result is arguably even more likely and is surely worth a punt at monster odds.
“By running these matches through Football Manager we’ve got some pretty realistic results and it’s worth bearing in mind before having a bet on the game. It seems as though if Jamie Vardy’s on the team sheet he’s the game’s most likely scorer.”
