Teams desperate to build momentum for the World Cup square off Monday when England hosts Germany in a 2022 UEFA Nations League match at Wembley Stadium. This is the final match for both teams before Qatar 2022, and both come in off 1-0 losses on Friday. Both looked listless in attack in their setbacks, with Germany (1-3-1) falling to Hungary and a rebuilding Italy team knocking off England (0-2-3). England have clinched last place in League A’s Group 3 and will be relegated to League B for the next Nations League campaign. Germany have no chance to reach the Nations League finals, so both teams will just be testing tactics for Qatar. England open the World Cup with Iran on Nov. 21, and the Germans kick off against Japan two days later.
Kickoff in London is set for 2:45 p.m. ET. England are +130 favorites (risk $100 to win $130), with Germany the +190 underdogs on the 90-minute money line in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest England vs. Germany odds. A draw is priced at +210 and the over/under for total goals scored is set at 2.5.

Now, Green has broken down England vs. Germany from every angle and just locked in his picks and Nations League predictions. You can head to SportsLine now to see his picks. Here are the betting lines and trends for Germany vs. England:
The Three Lions have taken a conservative approach to cover for a defense that lacks depth, but the attack is loaded with talent. It starts with Harry Kane, who has six goals in seven English Premier League matches this season with Tottenham. He has 50 goals in 74 games with the national team, and he scored the team’s only goal in this tournament on a penalty kick against Germany. Gareth Southgate will make every effort to get some creativity going behind him.
The England manager has been under fire for his tactics, especially considering the wealth of top-tier players at his disposal. The likes of Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling are dangerous scorers, and Declan Rice, Mason Mount and Jude Bellingham are creative midfielders. Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Ward-Prowse also cause a lot of problems with their crossing ability. England are 3-1-2 in the past six meetings with Germany.
As always, the Germans will be disciplined and tough to crack, especially against a team that has just one goal in its five Nations League matches. They hammered Italy 5-2 in their match before the loss to Hungary, with Timo Werner scoring twice and Joshua Kimmich, Thomas Muller and Ilkay Gundogan adding goals. The latter three are creative forces, and Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane also can help Werner or Kai Havertz exploit a struggling England defense.
The Three Lions have yielded eight goals in the tournament and suffered an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Hungary in June. The Germans’ back line is much stronger than England’s, though Real Madrid’s Antonio Rudiger will be out on suspension. Marc-Andre ter Stegen will take over in net with Manuel Neuer sent home with COVID, and the goalkeeper has five clean sheets in six games with Barcelona this season. Germany’s loss to Hungary was its first in 14 games (9-4-1).
Green has broken down the England vs. Germany matchup from every angle and revealed his best bets. He is going Under on the goal total and provides another confident best bet with a strong plus-money payout. He’s only sharing those picks here.
