According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Italy is the slight favorite, as it has odds of +175 to win, while England has been given a money line of +185 to prevail. Odds of a draw have been set at +200, while the over/under for goals has been set at 2.5.

Italy is third in World Cup history for wins, going 44-15-21 over 80 games. The Italians have scored 126 goals while allowing just 74. England has appeared in 59 World Cup matches, going 26-14-19 while scoring 77 goals and allowing 52.

WORLD CUP FREE PICK: Looking at recent results, it appears England may be coming into this game with a little more momentum than Italy. England is 2-0-2 in its last four friendlys while Italy is 0-1-4 in its last five. However, Italy has faced much stronger competition, which should pay off entering this game. The Italians need to send a message that it is a contender this year by picking up a win over a strong England team. The winner of this game will control the group and set itself up well for the rest of the World Cup. I think Italy has the edge and will find a way to sneak past England.

WORLD CUP FREE PICK: ITALY +175
