Chile - Ecuador Betting Preview: Back a draw at half-time and full-time in this qualifier

With both sides only needing a point to secure a place in the World Cup next summer, out tipster has found a bet that seems to offer value
Chile and Ecuador meet in the final match of their World Cup qualification group, with both teams in a great position to progress to the finals next summer.

With Argentina and Colombia already confirmed to play in Brazil, two spots are available for three sides fighting it out.

With Uruguay losing to Ecuador on Friday, it means both Reinaldo Rueda's side and Chile need just one point from this match to make it impossible for Uruguay, who sit in fifth, to leapfrog them.

Chile come into this match unbeaten in their last eight games. Jorge Sampaoli's side had started qualification in fine form, winning four of their first six matches.

However, a poor run at the back end of last year saw them lose four in a row to put their qualification spot in jeopardy.

Sampaoli's men then picked up their form again to win four of their last five matches, which puts them in pole position to qualify for Brazil. Bet365 price them at 7/5 (2.40) to win.

Ecuador have been in woeful form of late, winning once in their last seven matches.

Thankfully for coach Reinaldo Rueda, that victory came last time out against Uruguay, which sets them up well for qualification. Ecuador have been hugely inconsistent in their hunt for a spot in Brazil, winning seven, drawing four and losing four, and Bet365 price them at 9/1 (10.00) to take three points on Wednesday.

With both sides only needing a point from the match, it's no surprise to see the draw priced at 4/6 (1.67) with Bet365. The bookmaker firmly believes that neither side will be that interested in winning.

With that price too short to back, it's worth looking elsewhere for value. The half-time/full-time market seems to offer a solid bet, with Draw/Draw at 7/4 (2.75) with Bet365.

With both sides likely to keep solid to avoid losing, it's certainly worth a small investment.
