We’re approaching a weekend without our beloved Premiership, but fear not, we’ve still got your football tips covered. Kevin Loman, FHM’s betting maverick, gives the lowdown on this weekend’s international friendlies…

England v Chile

The South Americans are no mugs, and can’t be taken lightly by England. Chile are unbeaten in their last nine internationals, winning six and drawing three (including against Spain and Brazil). There are goals in the Chile line-up as they have scored 19 times in their last six internationals. The main threat comes in the form of Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez, who has six goals in his last six internationals.
 
The bet

Four or more goals in the match at 5/2
Alexis Sanchez to score anytime at 11/4

Combine both bets with your free £25 bet at William Hill and you'll take home £131.25

Turkey v Northern Ireland

Turkey have won only one of their last nine home internationals. They are a weak side and Northern Ireland actually lead the head-to-head stats (W5,D2,L4) against them. The games don’t tend to serve up too many goals, with none of their last eight meetings seeing both sides score… surely at least one of them will end up with nil, so let’s be optimistic.

The bet

Northern Ireland win 1-0 at 20/1

That’s potentially a £500 profit from a £25 free bet.

Republic of Ireland v Latvia

Ireland have won all four previous meetings against Latvia, scoring 11 and conceding just one. Combine that with Latvia’s current record from their last 10 internationals (W1, D4, L5) and this looks like a one-sided affair. When Ireland score, it usually comes courtesy of Robbie Keane, so…
 
The bet

Republic of Ireland win and Keane to score at 5/4

That’s potentially a £31.25 profit from a £25 free bet.

Scotland v USA

The Scots have an even head-to-head record with USA (W2, D2, L2), although the last time they met the Yanks turned in a commanding 5-1 victory. Jurgen Klinsmann is the USA manager and his side have won 15 of their last 16 internationals. Their goals have come through Sunderland’s super-striker Jozy Altidore, who has scored eight in his last eight internationals.
 
The bet

Jozy Altidore to score first at 11/2

That’s potentially a £137.50 profit from a £25 free bet.
