Money to be made from Wembley tussle

TEAMtalk's Simon Wilkes feels there's some money to be won from England's Euro 2012 qualifier with Montenegro on Tuesday night.

In the absence of our betting guru Matty Briggs here at the Towers, I've been scouring the odds for Tuesday's clash of the Group G titans.

Montenegro top the table after racking up three successive 1-0 wins over Switzerland, Bulargia and Wales - so will prove confident opposition for Fabio Capello's Three Lions at Wembley.

With three clean sheets in the bag already, the visitors will probably be a tough nut to crack - so I think the 11/4 on offer for a half-time/full-time of 'draw/England' is worth having a punt on with SkyBet.

While you're there, and following the news that Darren Bent is unavailable, get on the tasty 5-1 that's on offer for Peter Crouch to 'score the first goal'.

The gangly goalgetter's lack of regular action at Spurs has never seemed to affect him too much, and a goals return of 21 in 40 appearances for his country means the price is great value.

Finally, I reckon the 11/4 on Adam Johnson to 'score in 90 minutes' is too good to turn down following the Manchester City winger's fine form for club and country, with him finding the net against Switzerland and also bagging a winner for Roberto Mancini's men against Newcastle.

I'll be putting my money where my mouth is so hopefully we'll all be a bit better off come Wednesday morning.
