We all know that Football Manager pushes Leicester City close to the title of best scouting team in world football, and the realism of results on the computer game is impressive.
Therefore when Football Manager tells you the likely result of England vs Wales in Euro 2016, you listen (and maybe put a fiver on it!).
Rather than go through the newspapers to check form, the guys at Super Betting Tips simulated the match on Football Manager 2016 a full 1000 times in order to see what average result the game produced.
And the answer is an entirely plausible 1-0 victory for England, with the goal set to arrive from pacey striker Jamie Vardy. Watch out for Kyle Walker picking up an assist and the man of the match award. Add in three yellow cards and Betway have offered 5000-1 on these four events occurring.
Jake Apperley, Director at Free Super Tips, said: “5000/1 was the price given to Leicester winning the league last year and the bookmakers are still hurting. Unlike the Foxes’ magical season, our researched match result is arguably even more likely and is surely worth a punt at monster odds.”
During the experiment, from the 1000 games England won 617 times, a draw occurred 288 times, and Wales were winners for only 95 games.
