England’s Euro 2020 Squad Bet Specials - Centre-backs

We’ve started to look at the options that Gareth Southgate has available for his Euro 2020 England Squad and what odds the bookies are placing on each player to be part of the 23-man squad. Last time we looked at the goalkeeping options available to Southgate, this time we’re looking at the defense, more specifically, the centre-backs. We’ve provided bet slip links that will take you to the relevant slip for each player should you wish to back them. Please note the odds are correct as of 14/01/20.

Harry Maguire - 1/50

It goes without saying that Manchester United’s Harry Maguire has cemented his place in England's defense, and unless he picks up an injury, it’s certain that he will be on his way to the Euros at the end of the season.

Harry Maguire - 1/50

John Stones - 1/10

The bookies also believe that Maguire’s partner at center-back will be Manchester City rivals John Stones. Maguire and Stones appear to be the favoured defensive partnership under Gareth Southgate as 5 of their 6 2018 World Cup games consisted of a back 3 of Maguire, Stones and Walker.

John Stones - 1/10

Joe Gomez - 1/3

Despite only making 2 appearances for England in 2019, Liverpool’s Joe Gomez is also expected to be part of England’s 23-man squad for the Euros due to his brilliant form with Liverpool. In his opening 12 Premier League games this season, Gomez has kept more clean sheets than England teammate Harry Maguire, while playing 10 fewer league games. Gomez isn’t likely to be a starter for England at the Euros, but he’s a good option to have and will almost certainly be part of the squad.

Joe Gomez - 1/3

Tyrone Mings - 1/1

Also in contention to be part of Southgate’s 23-man squad is Aston Villa’s Tyrone Mings who made his 2 England appearances in the recent Euro qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo, keeping 2 clean sheets in a 6-0 win away to Bulgaria and a 4-0 win away to Kosovo. Mings hasn’t had the greatest of seasons so far with Aston Villa, finding himself in the relegation zone, but he’s been impressive in the couple of appearances for England so far.

Tyrone Mings - 1/1

Fikayo Tomori - 6/5

As a result of their transfer ban last summer, Chelsea have had no choice but to give game time to some of their younger players and been rewarded for doing so, with the likes of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount enjoying brilliant seasons with Chelsea so far. Another player who has also thrived thanks to the increase in minutes is Fikayo Tomori. To give you a comparison, having played the same number of Premier League games so far this season as Joe Gomez, Tomori has: made more interceptions, made more tackles, won more aerial battles and made fewer fouls than his Liverpool counterpart.

Fikayo Tomori - 6/5

Chris Smalling - 5/2

Despite being considered as “deadwood” to many Manchester United fans, Chris Smalling has shown fantastic form since moving to Roma on loan at the start of the season, scoring 2 goals and keeping 5 clean sheets in his opening 14 Serie A games this season. Naturally, there is doubt to whether Smalling’s form is that impressive considering that he is playing in Italy, but he is an experienced player who could be of use to Southgate for the upcoming Euros.

Chris Smalling - 9/4

Michael Keane - 4/1

The 7th favourite defender to be included in Gareth Southgate's Euro 2020 squad is Everton’s Michael Keane who has recently been a consistent figure in the England squad, starting in 5 of England’s 8 Euro 2020 qualifiers. However, considering the fact that he has only made 1 appearance (as a substitute) in England’s last 3 games, it looks like Southgate is looking at other options ahead of Keane.

Michael Keane - 4/1

Jack O’Connell - 16/1

If you’re looking for a higher price, Sky Bet are offering a 16/1 price on Sheffield United’s Jack O’Connell being included in Southgate 23-man squad. O’Connell is one of the few players to feature in the opening 22 Premier League games this season, and in those games he has: made more blocks, made more interceptions, won more tackles, made more headed clearances and kept the same amount of clean sheets as Virgil van Dijk.

Jack O’Connell - 16/1

Below are the remaining centre-back odds:
