In the outright betting, it is an Ivory Coast side which can call upon the services of Eric Bailly, Salomon Kalou and recently declared Wilfried Zaha, who lead the market. The Elephants are the the 7/2 (4.50) market principles with bet365, closely followed by Senegal at 5/1 (6.0).
Leicester City duo Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani will be key to Algeria’s chances and they’re listed in the betting at 7/1 (8.0) after what has been a turbulent year for the national side. Hosts Gabon are 8/1 (9.0) to triumph on home soil.
Ghana are an industry best price of 9/1 (10.0) with bet365 as former Chelsea boss Avram Grant looks to lead his side to a fifth AFCON title, albeit the most recent of those victories came in 1982.
That’s the same price as an Egypt side who won three consecutive editions from 2006 to 2010 before a hat-trick of disappointing qualifying campaigns saw them fail to make this stage.
Whoever you’re backing, whatever the bet, you can see the action unfold with bet365’s live streaming and there is sure to be plenty of interest from around the world.
