James Buttler looks ahead to the Euro 2024 Qualifiers on Tuesday

Listen to the Preview

00:00 / 03:08

I'm looking ahead to Tuesday night's European qualification action and I'm going to concentrate on four games where I think most of the value will be and probably most of the interest will be in all honesty starting with Group B where A Gibraltar take on Netherlands Gibraltar they are fresh from being absolutely batted 14 nil by France over the weekend.

They are bottom of Group B they've scored no goals at all. They've conceded 35 in the seven games they've played and not helped obviously by that French result. And this is all about how many Netherlands can score and are pretty much guaranteed the three points so you're not going to get rich on the outright prices but over 4.5 much goals in the game is 4/7 these prices by the way with William Hill.

Also in Group B Greece take on first placed France fresh from that win over Gibraltar 14 nil and Greece who are in third they can't overhaul second place Netherlands but they are guaranteed a playoff spots the no pressure for the Greeks going into this one but the French are top and they're buoyant after that 14 nil.

France have scored within 15 minutes in four of their last six away games. I think France to be ahead by half time is the way to play this one the 6/10 to win it. I won't put you off taking the French to win this game. But for France to be ahead at halftime is 11/10 that goes in the acca so that's Group B done with.

Let's Move to Group D now and there's jeopardy on this and Wales are involved. Wales take on Turkey at home. They're currently in third place and they need to be in the top two to get themselves into the Euros. Croatia stands in their way and Croatia are taking on Armenia

Croatia in second just need one point against Armenia to get qualification Wales need them to slip up. I don't see that coming, Croatia should be far too strong for Armenia, they are 1/6 on the outrights to win it. I'm going to put them in the acca at minus one so Croatia minus a goal 4/9.

Now if that comes true, there is nothing left for Wales to play for but these two matches will be going on at the same time. 7.45pm kickoffs UK time for all of these games and Wales going into that game against Turkey needing Croatia to slip up I've already said I don't think that's going to happen but that's the Wales plan if they are to get into second place.

Wales only lost once in the last 14 home European qualification matches but they're taking on a Turkey side who are top of Group D and top of Group D for a reason. Turkey beat Germany 3-2 in a friendly in Berlin last week. They're in form and they won three on the bounce and they've won all away matches so far in this Euro cycle.

They are the bigger price of the two teams. So I'm gonna stick Turkey in to my acca at 23 to 10 to beat Wales.

You could shop around find different prices elsewhere, but these prices are as I say with William Hill

In summary
Netherlands match over 4.5 goals
Croatia - 1
France ahead at half time
Turkey to beat Wales

The acca pays around 15/1

Good luck with all your bets gamble responsibly and enjoy the football.
