Ukraine v Wales Betting Preview

The Ukraine are sliding along nicely in some good form at the moment and will be a difficult side for Wales to take down on Monday night. The Ukraine are generally a very strong home unit and with the Welsh travelling there still not at full strength with the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey missing, it’s likely going to be a big ask of them to record the win. The Welsh failed to beat Northern Ireland in Cardiff during the week and they go as heavy underdogs on their long trip to the Ukraine.

Online betting site Boylesports are running a money back special for Ukraine v Wales betting. They will refund all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer and anytime goalscorer wagers placed pre-match if the game ends in a draw. The maximum free bet refund is £25 and there is just the only qualifying bet per customer.

Ukraine v Wales Betting Tips

The Welsh failed to take a win over Northern Ireland on Thursday and a game which lacked a bit of a cutting edge both ways. Wales have taken just a W2 D2 L2 record now over their last six internationals and Thursday’s game showed how much they need the driving and creativity forces of Aaron Ramsey And Gareth Bale in their set up. Wales have taken just one win in their last five matches played now but they have hit the back of the net in each of their last three. Simon Church was on the scoresheet with an 89th minute penalty against Northern Ireland on Thursday. Their last three games have been at home but the last time they did go away, they lost 2-0 against Bosnia-Herzegovina towards the end of Euro 2016 qualifying.

Simon Church and Sam Vokes are both 3/1 anytime goalscorer options for Friday night and look the best options for the Welsh to get on the scoresheet. There’s not a lot of history between Wales and the Ukraine, only two previous match ups. That happened back during World Cup 2002 qualifying and both of the games ended in a 1-1 draw. You can take a price of 6/1 in the Correct Score market for another 1-1 result to appear between them at online betting site Boylesports. Wales had the better of the first half against Northern Ireland, but they still looked pretty vulnerable across the entire 90 minutes and they will have a much tougher game on their hands on Monday night. This will be a big test of their resilience.

The Ukraine have suffered just the one defeat in their last seven games and so are moving along pretty nicely. They need to be in some definite form and keep it up as well because they have a tough group at Euro 2016 where they take on Germany, Poland and Northern Ireland in Group C. Tough draw for them. They have won their last two games on home soil, both with a clean sheet and have won three of their last four in the Ukraine actually. The only loss on that sequence of home games was against Spain during Euro 2016 qualifiers and that is their only defeat in their last seven. So they are pretty solid and tough and have banked four clean sheets in their last six games. Wales may have a really tough time breaking them down on Monday night and the Ukraine can be backed at 7/4 to win to nil with Andriy Yarmolenko is 6/5 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market.

Ukraine v Wales Betting Odds

Ukraine 8/11, Draw 13/5, Wales 16/5

Ukraine v Wales Predictions

This may be a really hard game for Wales to get out of without suffering a defeat. It is a friendly yes and that lack of competitiveness may help them hang in there, but they face a good Ukraine side at the end of the day and are likely to come out on the losing end. The Ukraine are playing well and have been particularly good on home soil with a tight defence. Home win.

Well there will be one notable absentee in Thursday night’s Wales v Northern Ireland international friendly clash in Cardiff. Who is that? That will be Welshman Gareth Bale who misses international duty this time around. The Real Madrid star netted seven of the eleven goals that Wales collectively scored during their qualification campaign.

His absence has left Sam Vokes as the shortest priced option in the First Goalscorer market for Wales v Northern Ireland this week. The Burnley man has netted 12 league goals in the Championship so far for the Clarets and has netted six goals for Wales in his career. Vokes is 6/1 outright favourite in the First Goalscorer market for Wales v Northern Ireland betting.

Just out at a little longer price than him you have Northern Ireland’s Kyle Lafferty who was the star of the show during Euro 2016 qualification. He top scored with seven goals in Group F, so that was almost half of the 16 goals that they scored as a total. So the Norwich man is the man for the men in green.

Whoever you back in the First Goalscorer market for Wales or Northern Ireland, you can take the chance to maybe double or even triple your original First Goalscorer odds.

Place a first goalscorer selection with Betfred on the game and if your player does open the scoring and then goes on to score a second in the match you will be paid out at double your original odds. If he scores a third after opening the scoring then you get paid out treble your original odds!

Wales v Northern Ireland Betting Preview

Both nations are riding high at the moment and both successfully booked their places at Euro 2016 with automatic spots. Now it is time to build towards the summer’s finals and the two come together in a rare meeting. There have been just the five previous meetings between Northern Ireland and Wales and it is the Welsh with the head to head lead. But they will be missing star players on Thursday night in Cardiff and Northern Ireland may fancy their chances of booking just their second win over the Welsh.

There is plenty of midweek International Friendly betting action to come this week and it’s usually a great time to build an accumulator. Place a fivefold or bigger football accumulator at online betting site Bet Victor (the win/draw/win market or Both Teams To Score markets) and if your wager loses by just the one leg then you will get your lost stake refunded a free bet up the maximum of £25. Register an account with Betvictor and earn a free £25 bet as a welcome bonus.

Wales v Northern Ireland Betting Tips

The Welsh will be looking for some confidence on home soil here. Unfortunately for them they will have to do it without star players Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey. Bale is pretty much Wales as an attacking unit, almost the one-man-band of the whole parade. He is a loss to them and the Welsh really need him on top of his game and fit for the Euro 2016 trials ahead this summer. During Euro 2016 the Welsh did a brilliant job in finishing second behind Belgium in their group. It was the four points which they took against Belgium which really were defining points of the campaign. Wales conceded only four goals in their ten qualification matches. They only scored eleven themselves though so it’s clear to see that they are not a side bursting with goals, which is why they need that influence of Bale as much as possible. Thursday night’s game to go under 2.5 goals is trading at 8/15 with online betting site Betvictor.

With the absence of Bale, Sam Vokes is trading as 7/4 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market and if they can get him in international scoring form for the summer, it will be a massive boon. Wales have gone W2 D1 L2 in their last five games played so not in the greatest of current form. The two wins in that sequence came against Cyprus and Andorra, while the defeats came against Bosnia-Herzegovina in Euro 2016 qualifying and then a 3-2 loss against the Netherlands in a field in mid-November last year. In their last five games, Wales have scored just the five goals, failing to strike in two of those matches. Following the game against Northern Ireland, Wales head out on the road to take on the Ukraine. The question for Thursday night is can they break down the tough Northern Ireland defence?

There have only been the five previous meetings between the two nations and Northern Ireland hold a W1 D2 L2 record from those encounters. They have failed to beat the Welsh at the last four attempts and the last time they contested a game was back in 2011 which Wales won 2-0 away from home in an international friendly. The Irish are in great form at the moment, not having lost any of their last eight games. They were probably the biggest story of Euro 2016 qualification as they came through brilliantly to top their group against the odds, with big away wins on the board and a crucial four points against second-placed Romania. Northern Ireland have posted a W3 D2 record in their last five and have scored in each of those games. Kyle Lafferty is a touch of quality up front if they can get the ball to him and he is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer quote.

Wales v Northern Ireland Betting Odds

Wales 13/10, Draw 2/1, Northern Ireland 12/5

Wales v Northern Ireland Predictions

This should be a competitive match but it doesn’t have the look of being a match which is full of goals at all. Northern Ireland’s great performances of late should see them go well enough to take a draw in Cardiff. Wales are missing key players and struggle to get going as an attacking unit without Bale so they may have to just settle for not losing. Draw.

Rugby Betting

This is pretty much going to be the Championship decider then, the crucial battle between the top two in the RBS Six Nations 2016. England lead the way in the Championship with six points and Wales just the point behind. England have to take on France in their final match of this season’s Six Nations while Wales’s get to go against France. So a win for England would all but wrap up the title for Eddie Jones in his first tournament in charge of the English.

There has already been a massive war of words between England and Wales head of the game, with Eddie Jones citing that Wales scrummage illegally, while naturally the Welsh have been responding with their own claims of unfair play by the English. It just adds a nice bit of extra spice to the game at Twickenham. England still have a shot at the Triple Crown and the Grand Slam of course if they continue their winning streak on Saturday.

They put in a controlled performance against Ireland last time out at Twickenham, putting a 21-10 win on the board against the reigning champions. England will be going into the game of course with some revenge on their mind. They looked in control against the Welsh at Twickenham in their Rugby World Cup fixture against Welsh but failed to press home their advantage and allowed Wales to get back in the game and record a win, which helped pushed England out of the tournament which they were hosting. England are price of 1/2 with Boylesports to make amends with a win on Saturday.

That has actually been two wins for Wales in their last three visits to Twickenham. That prompted big changes at the top and the eventual appointment of Eddie Jones. England have won their last 10 home matches in the RBS Six Nations since losing against Wales back in February 2012. If they can beat the Welsh on Saturday then they would land their 25th Triple Crown title. England have beaten Wales in their last two Six Nations meeting and are out to try and make it three in a row against them for the first time since back in 2004.

Wales can take full control of the Championship with another win at Twickenham on Saturday. That would put them one point clear at the top of the table with a game to come against Italy. Wales are running on a seven match unbeaten streak in the Six Nations and have taken a draw against Italy and wins over Scotland and Ireland so far in this campaign. So a win for them gives them the Triple Crown too and are shooting for their fourth Six Nations title since Warren Gatland took charge back in 2008. Wales are 2/1 to land the victory at Twickenham.

There have been 127 international matches between these two and England narrowly lead the head to head 58-57. It has, by and large, been Wales on top in recent meetings, the Welsh having won four of the last six against England but they will be taking on an England side who look a bit more streetwise under Eddie Jones than when the two met at the World Cup last year. England have averaged 13.21 points per game against Wales while the Welsh have averaged 11.76 points against England.

That leaves a narrow points margin for a handicap and that is what Boylesports have gone with. An England -5 handicap will return a price of even money with Boylesports. England’s Anthony Watson has ran in eight tries in his last ten games and is running at a price of 9/4 in the Anytime Try Scorer market, with Wales’ George North at 5/2.

Euro 2016 Betting

The draw for the Euro 2016 group stage was made on Saturday, December 12th and now nations can start preparing properly as they know who they will be facing, when they will be facing them and where they will be facing their group opponents.

Euro 2016 is hosted by France and will be played across ten different locations from Lille and Lens in the north through to the exotic play grounds of Nice and Marseille on the Mediterranean coast in the south. The final itself, what will be the 51st match of the competition, will be played at the Stade de France, Saint Denis and that is where the action all starts as well, when host nation France take on Romania in the tournament opener on June 10th.

There are six groups of four teams as the tournament has expanded into twenty-four competitors for the first time ever. That means of course that there is an extra game needing to be won on the path to success for whoever is crowned European champions at the end of the campaign. The top two from each Euro 2016 group will move through to the group stage automatically, while the four best third-placed teams will make their way through to the round of sixteen.

So there’s a pretty good chance of getting through of course with only eight nations dropping out after the group stage.

Euro 2016 Group Draw 2016

Euro 2016 Group A

France, Romania, Albania and Switzerland

It wasn’t a bad draw for the hosts France at all here. It will be a shocker if they didn’t get out of this one. The French are 1/2 favourites to move out of their group as winners and it should be a race for second place behind them. Switzerland are arguably their biggest threat in the Group A and frankly how easily England handled them in the qualifiers, even that shouldn’t be too much for them to handle. Albania, who are at their first major finals are 28/1 outside shots to shock everyone and win the group. Romania aren’t likely to offer a lot of opposition and it should be between them and Albania for third.

Euro 2016 Group B

England, Russia, Wales, Slovakia

England went as the top seeds in Group B and then pulled out Wales as the second team in their group to face. Russia and Slovakia fill in the holes. Wales weren’t keen on drawing England, at least boss Chris Coleman wasn’t because of the distractions over the Battle of Britain which it will be labelled as. That will be the second game in the group for both. Russia are a tricky side to handle and are the clear dark horses in the group, even though they finished a long way behind Austria in qualifying. But gutsy points against Sweden in qualifying helped them through, they should join England in the next round. Wales may have to grab a point against one of them on top of a win over Slovakia to edge through. England are 5/4 to top the group with Russia at 4/1, while Wales are even money to qualify.

Euro 2016 Group C

Germany, Ukraine, Poland, Northern Ireland

Germany head up the seeds in Group C and they get a mouthwatering clash against Poland. The two were together in qualifying for the finals and the Poles managed to earn a win against die Mannschaft. Because of the goals of Robert Lewandowski, the Poles will carry a threat and should qualify easily from the group. The Ukraine aren’t a bad side, in a bit of a transition though and are likely to earn third spot ahead of Northern Ireland. The Irish didn’t get a great draw here at all in the finals after all their hard worth through qualifying. Tough, draw and they are a the group outsiders with Germany at 6/11 to win the group.

Euro 2016 Group D

Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey, Croatia

This is one of those major tournament groups which on paper looks as if it will be a bit of a straight forward dull affair with double reigning champions Spain cruising to top spot. They are 6/5 to do so, but there are some tricky challenges coming in from Croatia, who are a technically gifted side and the Czech Republic who topped their qualification group over the likes of Holland and Turkey. The Czech’s will get reunited with Turkey in the group but they aren’t a defensively sound unit so that will put their qualification hopes at risk. The Spaniards should qualify easily enough but there could be an entertaining battle for positions in the group nonetheless because of defensive weakness amongst the other nations. It could be one of the more intense, tightly contested groups.

Euro 2016 Group E

Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Sweden

The Republic of Ireland probably won’t be too disappointed with their draw. They are trading at 23/10 to qualify. On the surface of things, getting drawn in a group alongside Italy and Sweden would seem a pretty tough thing, but there’s not much for the Irish to be afraid of here. Yes, the game against Belgium is going to be their toughest and the Red Devils are likely to deliver on their 13/10 favouritism to top the group, but the Italy aren’t a big threat and can be picked off and if you keep Zlatan Ibrahimovic quiet then you always have a chance against the Swedes. Really right group in this one with Italy at 2/5 and Sweden at 6/4 to qualify.

Euro 2016 Group F

Portugal, Iceland, Austria, Hungary

Portugal are top seeds in Euro 2016 Group F and they are 6/5 to finish as winners. They had such an easy group in qualifying though and made hard work of it that it may be worth looking towards Austria to pull off a group win at 11/4. The Austrians were the surprise package of qualifying, their positive play landing them top place in their qualifying group over Russia and Sweden. They should join Portugal in the next round leaving a scrap between Iceland and Hungary for the spoils of third. Not much to choose between them, but Iceland turned in some impressive performances in their tough qualification group. You can see a lot drawn matches being played out in this group.

Euro 2016 Outright Winner Odds

Germany are running as 10/3 outright favourites for Euro 2016 with host nation France at 11/4 behind them. Reigning European Champions Spain are 9/2 and that makes up the numbers for nations currently priced under double figure in Euro 2016 outright betting.

Germany 10/3, France 11/4, Spain 9/2, England 10/1, Belgium 12/1, Portugal 16/1, Italy 20/1, Croatia 25/1, Austria 33/1, 66/1 bar

Euro 2016 Top Goalscorer Odds

There will be a dazzling array of attacking talent on show at Euro 2016 and it is usually whoever gets off to the quickest start will get closest to the Golden Boot. Another key factor is looking at a player on a team who is likely to go deep in the contest. The brilliant Thomas Muller is 6/1 early favourite in the Euro 2016 Top Goalscorer market, following by the scoring talent of Cristiano Ronaldo at 7/1. Surprisingly on France’s Antoine Griezmann comes in at 8/1 in single figures then leading the chasing pack is Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku at 12/1, Olivier Giroud at 14/1 and Poland’s Robert Lewandowski at 16/1. At Euro 2012 six players (including Ronaldo) finished with 3 goals each as top scorers. England’s Wayne Rooney is a massive 40/1 poke, with Harry Kane shorter at 33/1.

Wales v Netherlands Betting Preview

The brilliance defensive efforts of Wales through Euro 2016 qualification saw them reach next summer’s finals. In contrast, the Netherlands were all over the place at the back as they missed out on a spot at the European Championships. They have looked in disarray for some time now and that should afford Wales the chance to give the home fans in Cardiff something else to cheer about on Friday night by beating the Dutch.

Get a pre-match wager down on any of the markets and if the game ends goalless then will get your lost stake refunded. When you register an account with them you can earn a 100% matched deposit bonus for some extra funds.

Wales v Netherlands Betting Tips

The Welsh have a decent opportunity here to continue in a positive vein as they host the Dutch. While the Dragons boasted a fantastic defence through Euro 2016 qualification, their big issue was hitting the back of the net. Without the input of Gareth Bale, their whole campaign would have been a different story. Wales only scored the eleven goals in their ten qualification matches so they aren’t prolific. But they conceded just the four goals along the way. Unfortunately for Wales Gareth Bale is only just getting back from an injury so isn’t in the squad. Joining him on the sidelines are fellow forwards Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes, which leaves the Welsh short up front. Uncapped Tom Bradshaw is in, with Simon Church and Leicester on-loan striker Tom Lawrence completing the forward ranks.

Wales now have to focus on their Euro 2016 preparations and this is a good test for them against a side who are out of sorts, but can still pose a threat. A draw at the end of the day wouldn’t be a bad result for Wales given their issue with forwards selections. Because of their strong defence, Wales should be confident about keeping the Dutch off the scoresheet in the game and Wales are 5/2 to pick up a clean sheet. Over their last six matches played Wales have put up a W4 D1 L1 record but their head to head form against Holland is dismal. They have lost their previous seven games against the Netherlands, Wales scoring just the three goals in those fixture. Holland have won the last two friendlies by a 2-0 scoreline over the Welsh, the most recent in June 2014.

So that’s another reason why Wales can see a draw as a success. If you want to run with the Netherlands 2-0 Correct Score trend then that will return 7/1 odds at Bet365. Holland were a shocking mess in defence during Euro 2016 qualification, conceding 14 goals as they finished fourth in their group. They don’t look to have any confidence or stability in their ranks at the moment and have lost four of their last six played. They have their danger-men of course with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Arjen Robben providing some firepower and both of them are around the 2/1 mark in the anytime goalscorer market. Just back in March 2015 they beat Spain 2-0 in a friendly but eight months on they are unrecognisable. In their last four games played they have conceded eight goals (no clean sheets) winning just one of those games.

Wales v Netherlands Betting Odds

Netherlands 10/11, Draw 12/5, Wales 3/1

Wales v Netherlands Predictions

The Dutch are there for the taking, but Wales may struggle to make a big impact going forward, because they do rely on the input of Gareth Bale a lot for goals. Still, wales are a confident, unified bunch at the moment and it won’t take much for Dutch heads to drop. Back the positive Welsh to battle for the draw.

Rugby Betting

The business end of the Rugby World Cup 2015 starts on Saturday with South Africa v Wales. It will be a massive test of the Welsh resolve after having qualified from Pool A ahead of England, but having suffered what perhaps could ultimately be a telling defeat against Australia. The Welsh campaign has been stung with injury after injury and Tyler Morgan, who has only two caps for his country, gets as a start in centre ahead of James Hook amid all their injury problems.

George North will go back to the wing where is most effective than his central role. Wales will be looking back to the last meeting against the Springboks when they took a 12-6 victory over South Africa at the Millennium Stadium last November. However, that victory has been a rare one for the Welsh against the Springboks, because prior to that, the Welsh had lost their 16 previous clashes against the Southern Hemisphere giants. Wales are 11/4 underdogs for the win on the weekend. South Africa go at 1/3 with the draw at 25/1.

So a big task ahead for Warren Gatland’s men who ran in just eleven tries during their Pool A campaign (six less than Australia and five fewer than England). It was their spirit and never-say-die attitude at Twickenham against England in their second match which really stood out in their campaign, the Welsh posting a 28-25 win but then they did find themselves outclassed, as England did, against the Wallabies. They are the lowest-scoring side to make it through to the knockout stages of the competition.

South Africa got themselves off to a dodgy start with that shock 32-34 defeat against Japan. However, they showed great resolve in putting together a very effective response as they stormed past Samoa, Scotland and the USA to go on and win Pool B ahead of the Scots, running in 23 tries in the process. Boks legend Bryan Habana is a 7/1 quote in the first try scorer market for the game against Wales, while George North is a up at 11/1.

So from the 30 previous head to clashes between South Africa and Wales, the Springboks have won 27 and lost two, with one draw on the board. South Africa have averaged 27 points per game against Wales in their meetings, while the Welsh have posted an average of just 14 in return against South Africa. That’s a strong 12 point average in favour of the Springboks and online betting site Bet365 have a South Africa -9 Handicap up at a price of even money.

If this, or any Rugby World Cup 2015 game goes to extra time, Bet365 will settle the match outright or second half bet wager on the game at the conclusion of the extra time period. That means that you have an extra chance of winning just in case things are tied after 80 minutes! Register an account with Bet365 and enjoy a 100% matched deposit bonus.

Wales v Andorra Euro 2016 Qualifiers Betting Preview

Qualification has been all sewn up for Wales despite a loss in Bosnia on the weekend and despite losing top spot in the group to Belgium. Chris Coleman’s men have made it to France 2016, the first time that Wales will ever have played at a European Championships. Their long qualification process comes to a close with an easy looking game at home against Andorra. Cardiff should be in party mood on Tuesday night.

Wales v Andorra Betting Tips

Well it turned out to be a pretty good night for Wales, despite their loss in Bosnia. Even though they lost 2-0, Israel’s defeat against Cyprus meant that the Welsh couldn’t be caught and muscled out of a top two spot in the group, so Chris Coleman’s men can starting thinking about Euro 2016 next summer. Wales will join Belgium from the group at France 2016, leaving Cyprus, Bosnia and Israel in a big three-way scrap to book a play-off spot in the group. Wales don’t have to concern themselves with qualification worries now and they can celebrate their qualification in style with a good home win in Cardiff against minnows Andorra. Everything comes full circle as Wales started their Euro 2016 qualification campaign against Andorra.

It was nearly an embarrassment for them too as they really toiled to put a 2-1 win on the board, Gareth Bale rescuing them with a brace after falling behind, the Real Madrid man netting the winner 9 minutes from time. Gareth Bale has carried Wales offensively and he has netted six goals in the group, just one behind Bosnia’s Edin Dzeko. If Bale brings his shooting boots to the party on Tuesday night, there’s a fair chance he’ll finish group top scorer. The last four qualification goals that Wales have scored have come from Bale, but Wales have failed to hit the net in their last two games. They should get their eye in against Andorra though at home you would imagine. Bale is a 7/4 First Goalscorer favourite and an unappealing 2/9 in the anytime market. He has scored scored two thirds of the nine goals that Wales have managed in their nine Euro 2016 qualification matches.

So Wales haven’t been great going forward and unless they score at least three goals against Andorra to top Romania’s tally of 11 goals, Wales will be the lowest-scoring team to book an automatic place at Euro 2016. While Andorra netted in four of their five home games, they have drawn blanks in their four qualifiers on the road, having conceded 18 in those four away games a 3-0 defeat in Bosnia their best away result. Good chance for Wales to fire off a few goals and a Wales 3-0 correct score is a 7/2 poke and they are 4/9 to win to nil. Andorra have conceded 34 goals in their nine games played during Euro 2016 qualification.

Wales v Andorra Betting Odds

Wales 1/25, Draw 18/1, Andorra 66/1

Wales v Andorra Predictions

Neither have anything to play for here so a bit of a non-starter, but Wales should be relaxed and in a party mood and should find plenty of openings against Andorra who aren’t good travellers. A solid home win for the Welsh and a chance to perhaps beat Belgium to top spot.

Rugby Betting

This is the big crunch game in Pool A now and it is a straight shootout for top spot. Both are sat on thirteen points after banking three wins each and while both have already qualified for the quarter finals, the scrap for top spot is hugely important. Winning the group will mean avoiding South Africa in the quarter finals and having to play Scotland or Japan instead. So everything to play for but it is Wales who are going as 5/2 underdogs in the match outright at Paddy Power, with Australia 2/5.

The Wallabies have looked extremely efficient and powerful and handled their big Twickenham clash with England far better than the host nation did. They were clinical, tactically sound and just played the English off the park. They are increasingly looking like a bigger and bigger title prospect with every match they play and a solid win against the Welsh would confirm that. They certainly have the head to head form over the Wales to suggest that they are going to be the ones who top the group.

Australia have won the last ten meetings against the Welsh. That’s some pretty strong form there but it has to be said that most of those meetings were pretty tight nail-biting affairs, such as in their 33-28 win that the Wallabies put up in the most recent meeting back in November of last year. Still, perhaps that says even more about the resolve of the Australians and their ability to win through. They have lost just one of their last fourteen against Wales now.

In total there have been 38 previous Wales v Australia meetings and Australia hold a 27-10 head to head lead with just the one drawn fixture. Australia have averaged 23 points per game against Wales, while the Welsh have averaged 15 points per game in return against Australia. Online betting site Paddy Power have a Wales +7 handicap up at a price of even money which may have some big appeal for punters given the way that the Welsh have come together.

Each of the last nine games against the Wallabies has seen Wales lose by just nine points or fewer. Despite all of their injury setbacks, Wales turned up when it mattered most in their dramatic late win over England at Twickenham, which saw them simply refuse to lie down in the match. It will be more important to keep in closer touch with Australia than they did against England though, because getting points back against the Wallabies will be much harder to achieve.
