England to edge Nigeria, Sterling to score first? Belgium to beat Portugal?
Mexico's inability to breakdown Wales in Pasadena scuppered a 7/2 treble last time out but there's a fresh round of international friendlies this weekend as preparation continues ahead of the World Cup, including England's clash with Nigeria.

The Home Banker
England face their final home game at Wembley before the start of the World Cup when they face Nigeria on Saturday. The Three Lions were impressive during qualifying but Gareth Southgate will know it's what his team do in Russia that will ultimately define his tenure as England boss. The likes of Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi are familiar faces to followers of the Premier League and it will interesting to see how England cope with Nigeria as an attacking force. Form-wise, England are unbeaten in their last eight matches. However they have failed to score more than one goal in a game in any of their last six and so backing Under 2.5 goals at 3/4 could be the way to go at Wembley.
Selection: £4 on Under 2.5 goals at 3/4 with bet365.
The Tasty Treble
Roberto Mancini kicked off his reign as Italy manager with a 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia on Monday, but a trip to face France promises to be a much tougher assignment on Friday evening. Preference is for France (8/13) to make it three wins in a row against the Italians. Germany, who are joint favourites with most bookmakers to win the World Cup, should be too strong for Austria and are priced up accordingly at 1/2. Finally Belgium (19/20) look good things against a Portugal side who have been really struggling of late. The Portuguese blew a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Tunisia earlier in the week and have also lost 3-0 at home to Netherlands in recent times. The treble pays better than 7/2 with bet365 and looks interesting.
Selection: £3 on the treble at 3.72/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Portugal have won just one of their last four friendly matches and could struggle to contain a Belgium side featuring Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku. Belgium have scored at least three goals in five of their last seven matches and look to have goal threats all over the pitch. They will be keen to test themselves against the reigning kings of Europe and the pick here is backing Belgium to win and both teams to score at a standout 15/4 with bet365.

The Wildcard Tip
It's not been a vintage week for Raheem Sterling after news broke about the choice of his latest tattoo but the England star can remind people just why he's so crucial to England's prospects this summer by scoring first against Nigeria. Sterling weighed in with 18 goals during a brilliant season for Manchester City and his pace, flair and eye for goal could trouble the Super Eagles at Wembley.
The Bookie Basher
Romelu Lukaku is a 9/2 pick to score first when Belgium face Portugal and Belgium's record goal scorer could be worth a punt this weekend. Adding Lukaku with Leroy Sane (13/2) to notch first for Germany against lowly Austria offers a double paying a whopping 40/1 with bet365.
