Mismatches in opposition mean it can be time to build longer multiples, or stick a more of a stake on the favourites.

2nd Sep - Georgia vs Rep. of Ireland (Under 3.5 – 1.17)
The Republic of Ireland’s defensive resoluteness has been their best attribute under Martin O’Neill, and it proved crucial in helping them qualify for Euro 2016. They are well placed in group D in joint first place, but their defensive focus, has left them struggling for goals on occasion, leading to disappointing home draws with Austria and Wales recently. Georgia will provide a tricky assignment, and given a lack of creative sparks on the field for both sides, under 3.5 seems a safe bet.
2nd Sep - Spain vs Italy(1X – 1.17)
The two big hitters in Group G go head to head here, and Spain are slight favourites with home advantage and given the club form of their big stars likeIsco, Asensio and Morata. These sides drew back in October; however Spain looked very impressive as they controlled the game right up until a late Italy equaliser. It will be close, but La Roja’s greater technical ability means backing them in a double chance bet is a logical move.
2nd Sep - Senegal vs Burkina Faso (1 – 1.60)
Senegal’s attacking quality should see them through for a home win here. With Sadio Mane and Keita Balde fast becoming world class talents, expect them to have too much for a gutsy, but limited Burkina Faso team.
2nd Sep - Serbia vs Moldova (1 & Over 2.5 – 1.66)
Serbia know that their group D rivals all face tough fixtures this weekend, so a win here could really cement their place as frontrunners for automatic qualification. With home advantage, and against the weakest team they are likely to face in this campaign, back a Serbia win with over 2.5 goals to be scored in the match.
3rd Sep - Greece vs Belgium (X2 – 1.24)
Belgium have been by far and away the best side in Group H, almost picking up maximum points, apart from their only draw against, you guessed it, Greece! Expect a close fought game, but Roberto Martinez will be better prepared for what the Greeks will bring to the table, and we think double chance for the away side is a good call.
3rd Sep - Hungary vs Portugal (X2 - 1.10)
Hungary not only must try and stop Cristiano Ronaldo this weekend, but also the double threats of Bernardo and Andre Silva who give this Portuguese side an extra attacking dimension. With Ronaldo suspended for his club, he will be even more motivated to get on the scoresheet here. Portugal’s attacking ability should get the win, but back double chance just in case Hungary can spring a surprise.
