If you’re anything like me then you are already missing your Premier League action and it’s only been a couple of days!

But don’t despair Jamie P who writes the sports column at the excellent Betting School Insiders Club is back with some bets for the Euro 2016 Qualifiers.

Euro 2016 Qualifiers: Fellaini to shine and England to go easy on San Marino.

This week we turn our attention to crucial Euro 2016 qualifiers as we come closer to finding out who will spending next summer in France.

And we don’t mean in a villa in Provence…

Belgium v Bosnia-Hz

If you’re going to have Premier League withdrawal symptoms this week, the next best thing to watching England play is to watch Belgium play.

It would be no surprise if at least nine of their starting XI are Premier League-based players with only midfield enforcer Radja Nainggolan (Roma) and playmaker Axel Witsel (Zenit) being based overseas.

Of course we shouldn’t fall into the trap of assuming that they’re quality just because they play in the Premier League but few would argue that a side whose spine contains Thibaut Courtois, Vincent Kompany, Marouane Fellaini, Edin Hazard and Christian Benteke isn’t to be feared.

On Thursday night they play Bosnia-Hz who have had a mixed campaign so far.

They secured decent draws away at Wales and at home to Belgium but then lost at home to Cyprus and 3-0 in Israel.

There’s a gulf in class between these sides and Belgium should have won the fixture in Bosnia given they had 62% possession.

With a fully fit squad to choose from and a burning desire to make up ground on group leaders Wales, the hosts will be giving their all to win and win convincingly.

Given the domestic form of Vincent Kompany at the heart of their defence plus the likes of Jan Vertonghen and Courtois, a clean sheet is very much on the cards.

And with the attacking talent they have both in the starting line-up and off the bench (Romelu Lukaku, Nacer Chadli and Kevin Mirallas normally don’t even make the first XI) Belgium have the weapons to win this match by two or more goals.

Marouane Fellaini has been suspended for most of the Premier League season so far but needed just six minutes after coming off the bench to score at home to FC Bruges.

His record for Belgium in recent months has been outstanding.

He has scored five of Belgium’s last 10 goals and looks by far the best value to get a goal here.

San Marino v England

In matches between football super-powers (England are ranked 9th in the world so qualify for the description on those grounds) and minnows (San Marino are ranked 192nd), there’s a tendency to get a bit over-excited.

Which means reaching for the betting options like ‘England to score five or more’.

But on this occasion, the value lies with staying on the conservative side.

Consider this: In England’s last 27 matches, they have scored five or more goals just once.

That was admittedly against the very same San Marino (5-0) last October.

But then again, that was at home.

If England needed to score lots of goals and star strike Wayne Rooney was in-form, we’d be a little cautious about our bet.

But they don’t, and he’s not.

A very possible scenario is that England score three or four and take their foot off the pedal with that match next week against Switzerland on their minds.

It’s worth taking a chance.
