International football often provides excellent betting opportunities due to some of the mismatches in levels of opposition. Check out our 6-leg multiple at odds of 16.12.
Azerbaijan vs Northern Ireland (X2 – 1.27)
Northern Ireland are positioned well in second place in Group C. Out of the games played they have only conceded twice in a 2-0 away defeat to group leaders Germany, highlighting the defensive strength of their side. The long trip to Azerbaijan means a win isn’t a certainty, but they are a superior outfit and are in no danger of losing so back X2 here.
Kazakhstan vs Denmark (2 – 1.48)
Only a point separates 2nd and 5th in Group E, as Denmark lie just behind second placed Montenegro on goal difference. Propping up the group in 6thare Kazakhstan who look completely out of their depth at this level. A win looks likely for the away side.
Poland vs Romania (1 – 1.54)
Another fixture in Group E sees table toppers Poland take on Romania in Warsaw. While it won’t be an easy fixture for the home side, they have been impressively consistent so far with 4 wins and only 1 draw. Lewandowski and Co. know a win can almost guarantee automatic qualification for Russia 2018, therefore backing the home win is the logical choice.
Scotland vs England (2 - 1.70)
Away from home the Three Lions will have a tougher time against their neighbours. However no matter where the venue, there is still a huge gulf in class between these sides. England coasted to a 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture at Wembley, and while home advantage should may the Scots a bit, they will still come out second best in this one.
Republic of Ireland vs Austria (Under 2.5 – 1.55)
The reverse of this fixture resulted in a 0-1 away win for Martin O’Neill’s side last time out, and another low scoring tie is a distinct possibility. The Republic of Ireland’s two home games in Group D thus far have both seen under 2.5 goals and backing this trend to continue here is a good call given their defensive system.
Serbia vs Wales (GG– 2.13)
Serbia are favourites for this game being the home side, and Wales haven’t been in the best form drawing their last 4 games in Group D. On closer inspection howeverthis game is more evenly matched than it would appear and one should remember that the Welsh have a match-winning Gareth Bale in their ranks, who scored against Serbia last time out. We feel both teams will score in what should be a closely fought game with so much on the line.
