The World Cup qualifiers return this week as teams look to book their place in Russia next summer. While many fans do not see international games as having as much excitement and intrigue as club football, with the final round of games incoming, there is likely to be goals, rash challenges and big moments. With this in mind, we have tracked down some very interesting bets that should offer good value for money, so be sure to check them out below.
Thursday 5th October
19:45 BST England vs Slovenia
England host Slovenia on Thursday as the Three Lions look to secure their place in Russia next summer with a win. Slovenia, on the other hand, are in with a chance of grabbing a runners-up place and a victory over England would really put the pressure on second-placed Slovakia. England have only conceded three goals in eight games this campaign, but the visitors clinched a very good point in a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture. However, Gareth Southgate will be confident of three points in this one.
Tip: England to win @ 1/3
Friday 6th October
17:00 Georgia vs Wales
Wales travel to Georgia on Friday as they look to keep the pressure on Serbia at the top of the table. With five draws this campaign, Chris Colemans men have been incredibly profligate in their attempted qualification, and they are now without Gareth Bale for their vital crunch match. Gerogia, on the other hand, languish in fifth in the group with five points and, incredibly, they have the same number of draws as their visitors too. Even without Bale though, it would be brave to back against Wales in this one.
Tip: Wales to win @ 1/1
19:45 Italy vs Macedonia
Italy are looking to keep pressure on top team Spain on Friday as Group G is going down to the wire, with just three points separating the top two sides. The visitors come in the form of Macedonia, a side that have won just two games in a disappointing campaign. Italy, on the other hand, have won six games, drawn one and lost one and, if they weren’t in a group with Spain, they would likely have already qualified. With so much still up for grabs, this is one the Italians surely will not lose.
Tip: Italy winning at half-time and full-time @ 3/10
Saturday 7th October
19:45 Belarus vs Netherlands
An off-colour Dutch side travel to Belarus on Saturday searching to add some pride to a campaign which is likely to see them miss out on yet another major tournament. Holland, who have 13 points from eight games, are four short of first placed France and three shy of Sweeden, which means that their campaign is likely to end in another failure. Belarus, on the other hand, are floundering at the bottom of the group with five defeats, meaning that the Dutch have a great chance to score some goals and take this qualifying campaign to the final game at least.
Tip: Netherlands to win @ 1/4
19:45 Bulgaria vs France
2016’s European Championship’s hosts and runner-ups France travel to Bulgaria on Saturday as they look to keep top spot out of the hands of Sweden in second-place. Their hosts are down in fourth with 12 points and still have a chance of sneaking into a runners-up sport, although this has become increasingly more unlikely. The safe bet seems to be the French who have lost just once this campaign, meaning an away win is likely.
Tip: France to win @ 2/9
