England vs. Iceland prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for Euro warmup international friendly

With an emphatic 3-0 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina in their back pocket, Euro 2024 favourites England now press forward with another international friendly against Iceland on Friday.

The Three Lions have one of the most star-studded rosters of any Euro participants and are therefore considered most likely to lift the trophy this summer in Germany.

Harry Kane is fresh off a sensational season with Bayern Munich from a goal-scoring perspective, and he has a glutton of attacking talent in support. Having never won a European championship in their nation’s history, this may be England’s best chance at a continental title.

They meet Iceland in their final warmup friendly before the Euros start with a group stage match against Serbia on June 16. Iceland ranked 72nd in the world, fell agonizingly short of qualifying for the competition thanks to a defeat to Ukraine in the playoff final.

England vs. Iceland prediction, odds

  • Moneyline lean: England (-750)
  • Score prediction: England 2-0 Iceland

While England were afforded the ability to unleash the attack in a 3-0 win against an anemic Bosnia & Herzegovina attack, they will have to focus more on defensive solidity against an offensive-minded Iceland side that can score goals against anyone, but struggle at the back.

Gareth Southgate’s side often leans towards a defensive style even despite the wealth of attacking talent, and they will know Iceland should afford them chances in front of goal even if they don’t go all-out up front. England didn’t score a second and third against Bosnia & Herzegovina until the final 10 minutes, so their muted attacking approach will see them prioritize a clean sheet over opening up the floodgates up front.

England vs. Iceland best bet

  • Pick: Under 3.0 total goals
  • Odds: +120 (DraftKings)

As stated above, Iceland may find it tough going forward against a defensively adept England that focuses on solidity at the back under Gareth Southgate. This selection was in great shape in their previous friendly against Bosnia & Herzegovina until Trend Alexander-Arnold and Harry Kane found the net in the final five minutes to secure a 3-0 win.

Iceland are a bigger threat to score than England’s last opponent, which actually could work against the total here than for it, as the hosts prioritize their shape and structure ahead of the Euros.

England vs. Iceland prop bet

  • Pick: Iceland -2.5 goal handicap
  • Odds: -145 (BetMGM)

Iceland have a talented attacking unit, having scored in each of their last four games. Yet when they come up against a top side, such as their two recent Euro qualifiers against Portugal, they end up in grinders. Iceland fell 2-0 and 1-0 to a Portugal side bursting with attacking talent, indicating they can keep a lid on matches against top teams but probably won’t contribute much to the scoreline themselves.

If England let Iceland get out on the counter, they could be in trouble, but in all likelihood this one will finish with a lesser score, keeping Iceland within reach. If the visitors do find a goal at Wembley, that would also give them a great chance to keep it within reach.
