Before you make any Italy vs. England picks or UEFA Euro 2024 Qualifying predictions, you NEED to see what SportsLine soccer insider Martin Green has to say.
After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Green is 54-62-1 on his SportsLine soccer picks since the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup, generating a slight profit for bettors. Now he's locked in on this England vs. Italy matchup.
Green knows England have won 17 of their last 18 Euro qualifying matches, with the only loss being a 2-1 setback against the Czech Republic in October 2019. The club will be eager to help Gareth Southgate reach a milestone with the 52-year-old seeking his 50th victory as its manager. England possess one of the top offensive players in the sport in Harry Kane, who is second in the English Premier League this season with 21 goals and totaled 16 tallies in 15 Euro 2020 Qualifying and tournament matches.
The expert also has taken into account that Italy have not lost a Euro qualifier on home soil since 1999, when they dropped a 3-2 decision to Denmark. Overall, the Italians have won 14 consecutive qualification games and are unbeaten in 40 straight since losing 3-1 to France in 2006. Italy will be without Ciro Immobile and Giacomo Raspadori due to injuries, so they will be looking for offense from Vincenzo Grifo and Giovanni Di Lorenzo, who combined for every goal in a 3-1 victory against Albania in a friendly last November.
Now, Green has taken an in-depth look at the England vs. Italy match from every angle. We can tell you he is on the Under for the goal total, and he has another CONFIDENT best bet in addition to a full breakdown of the match.
