Euro 2016 Betting

Wales v Andorra Betting Preview

The Welsh will be looking to get off to a big start here as they face off against the group minnows Andorra. Wales Boss Chris Coleman has the ideal start to build up some confidence for the rest of the qualifying campaign, as they have been lumped in a pretty tough group alongside Bosnia-Hercegovina and Belgium. This will be the first meeting between the two sides and Wales are heavy odds on 1/8 favourites with online bookmaker Stan James.

Big international football weekend and online betting site Stan James are giving away free £5 bets. Place a £5 treble/acca on the over/under 2.5 goals market for Sunday’s Euro 2016 qualifiers, and the bookmaker will give you a free £5 bet regardless of whether you bet wins or loses.

Wales v Andorra Betting Tips

This should be a pretty routine game for Wales to navigate their way through. There has been talk of a golden generation of Welsh football at the moment, with the likes of Gareth Bale, Joe Allen and Aaron Ramsey in the mix. The last times Wales were out in action was at the start of June when they suffered a 2-0 loss against Holland. But prior to that they had stitched together a four match unbeaten run, which included a win over Macedonia and a draw against Belgium in the World Cup 2014 qualifiers. Wales have conceded in each of their last four games played though, but surely against Andorra they should be able to rack up a clean sheet.

Wales are priced up at 8/15 to win to nil, which shows the high probability of it happening. The big options in the anytime goalscorer market are going to be Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, who really have to be at the centre of the Welsh drive. They will be playing this on a 3G artificial pitch, which has been cleared for action by FIFA. Coleman has said Bale will play if he is fit, despite concerns over the surface. Wales have to push forward for goals as goal difference in the group could well come into play down the line, with everyone expected to whip Andorra.

Andorra are on a five match losing streak, not having scored in any of those games. They last avoided defeat in a 1-1 friendly draw against Moldova last year. But in their five games since then, they have conceded at least two goals in each of their defeats. Even seeing them get a point on the board in their Euro 2016 qualifying group is going to be a pretty big stretch. Wales really have to put them to the sword.

Wales v Andorra Betting Odds

Wales 1/8, Draw 8/1, Andorra 16/1

Wales v Andorra Predictions

There is little doubt about the probable outcome in this one. Wales should get a comfortable ride in this one and get the chance to run up a few goals. The closest that you can get to decent value in backing the Welsh is a Wales/Wales Half Time/Full Time wager for 1/2, which isn’t bad at all. At slightly better value is the 2nd Half being the highest scoring at even money with Stan James, when the Andorra side predictably start to tire.

Sports Betting

Wales go into battle against South Africa on Saturday, as underdogs for the clash in Durban. This is a two test series for the Welsh against the Springboks, and the big occasion of Wales v South Africa Rugby Betting on Saturday will mark the 100th test appearance for prop Adam Jones. Wales warmed up for this match with a 32-12 win over Eastern Province King and Wales will be hoping that big George North will be in the starting fifteen after being knocked back with a virus.

There has been a lot of talk about the age of the Springboks forwards, and while Wales coach Warren Gatland has played down talk of the likes of 37 year old Victor Matfield being included, Wales will probably hoping to outwit their opponents pack with mobility. Still, the average age of the Bok’s is still 29, so there really aren’t much age issues there to really affect the game.

Wales do go into the match as underdogs, as it’s always difficult to post wins in the Southern Hemisphere for any of the northern Hemisphere nations. South Africa are up at as 1/8 odds on favourites, with the Welsh back at 6/1 to take the win. Then handicap is running at Wales + 14 for a price of even money in this one.

There have been 27 previous matches between the two countries, and South Africa have won all but two of them (W25 D1 L1), so another reason why Wales are such heavy underdogs. South Africa have averaged 27 per game against Wales, while the welsh have averaged 14 points per game against the Springboks.

South Africa are currently on a fourteen match winning streak against Wales, their last coming together back in November of 2013, with the Boks taking a 24-15 victory. South Africa have posted twenty points or more in twelve of their last fourteen matches against the Welsh.

Online betting site Paddy Power are running coverage on all losing try scorer bets for England v New Zealand rugby betting which is also being played on Saturday. If a forward scores the first try of the game, than the bookmaker will refund losing stakes on all try scorer bets for that match placed before kick off. This offer applies to 1st try scorer, last try scorer, 1st team try scorer, anytime try scorer,1st tryscorer insurebet, to score two or more tries and to score three or more tries.

World Cup 2014 Betting

Holland v Wales Betting Preview
With a tough task awaiting them at the World Cup, Holland will be looking to get some good momentum behind them after a run of somewhat dispiriting international friendly results. Can Wales, missing their best two players, put up a stiff challenge out in Amsterdam and get some confidence themselves as they look ahead to Euro 2016 qualifying?

Holland v Wales Betting Odds at online bookmaker Ladbrokes
Holland 2/7, Draw 4/1, Wales 9/1

Online bookmaker Promotion
There is a good World Cup 2014 betting promotion available for customers at online betting site Ladbrokes.

Holland v Wales Betting Tips:
Something isn’t quite clicking with Holland at the moment ahead of Brazil 2014. They secured easy enough qualification to reach the World Cup finals, but Louis van Gaal’s troops haven’t really pushed on since then and haven’t given punters too much to think about. Since qualifying for Brazil 2014, they have posted drawn matches against Ecuador, Colombia and Japan, while suffering a comprehensive 2-0 defeat against World Cup dark horses France. Not a great stretch of form from them. They did post 1-0 win over Ghana at the end of May, the African nation heading to the World Cup as well, but it wasn’t a thoroughly convincing display after Robin van Persie had opened the scoring in the fifth minute. They couldn’t build on it. The Dutch, despite having Van Persie, Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Arjen Robben around, haven’t been scoring as many goals as they should have.

Holland are a long way out at 33/1 with Ladbrokes to win the World Cup this time around, looking a way short of how solid they were four years ago. At Brazil 2014, the Netherlands have to concern themselves with Spain, Chile and to a much lesser extent, Australia in Group B. They will have a big fight on their hands to book a qualification spot if they aren’t on top of their game. If they do finish second as betting suggests, then that would put them in a round of sixteen match against Brazil, so their World Cup ambitions are at risk of ending early. Still, there is a chance for some momentum here as the Dutch already hold an unbeaten six wins from six previous matches against Wales. In those six matches against the Welsh, Holland have scored 19 goals and conceded just three.

They last came together back in an international friendly in 2009, a  game which the Dutch won 2-0. Not helping the Welsh here is that both Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey are missing the match, Bale having pulled out with a muscle problem, and Ramsey being rested. Bale has come under fire for missing another friendly, but he is nursing a muscle problem apparently. The Welsh are in a decent bit of form, posting a win over Macedonia and then holding Belgium to a 1-1 draw at the end of World Cup qualifying last October. A draw against Finland in a friendly and then a win over Iceland followed that up for them. In facing top quality opposition, the Welsh do lack the overall punch to make big inroads, and that makes them justifiable underdogs here for their trip to Amsterdam.

Prediction
The Dutch really need to find another gear and you would expect them to secure a win on home turf. Would probably look for them to Win To Nil.

Wales v Iceland Betting Preview
The home support in Cardiff could do with a boost with Wales out of winning form. They have posted just one win in their last six matches now, but will still be eyeing up this international friendly as being winnable against an Iceland side who have won two of their last six.

Wales v Iceland Betting Tips:
Chris Coleman needs games like this, in order to build towards Euro 2016. They go up against Bosnia, Belgium, Israel, Cyprus and Andorra in their qualifying group there. Iceland are a tougher side than people probably think. Wales failed to impress in their World Cup qualifying group finishing fifth out of sixth with three wins on the board. Two of those wins came over Scotland, who still finished above the Welsh. Wales only managed nine goals during qualification and shipped goals at an average of exactly two per game. They will be hoping that the form of Burnley’s Sam Vokes can help them get amongst the goals, as he comes into the picture. He is trading at 6/4 in the anytime goalscorer market, behind the Even money favouritism of Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.

Incidentally, Vokes scored on his international debut against Iceland back in 2008. Wales have only kept one clean sheet in their last five, having conceded exactly one goal in each of their last three. It does suggest that a Both Teams To Score wager could come into play for a price of Even money. Still, it doesn’t look as if it is going to be a high scoring match at all and the tendency will be to go under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/6 with Bet365. If a win comes you can see it being by just a narrow margin.

Iceland surprised many in their qualification group, returning a nice amount of goals and actually taking second place in their group behind Switzerland. That sent them into a play off against Croatia, where they fell 2-0 on aggregate. Still, they have only lost one of their last six matches played now and have drawn two of their last three away games (one of them a 4-4 in Switzerland). They are a very organised and tidy side and aren’t to be dismissed easily. After coming so close to making it to the World Cup, it’ll all be about how well they pick themselves up now from that disappointment.

Prediction
This match could actually go either way, as Iceland aren’t a bad side. Would consider going under 2.5 goals though for this one for a 4/6 shot at online betting site Betfair.

There have been just the six previous matches between them and Wales hold a positive 4-1 lead there. The last time they met was in 2008 in a friendly, which Wales won 1-0 away. The last time they met in Cardiff, Wales won by the same scoreline.

Gareth Bale (Wales)

Wales v Finland Betting Preview
This has the complete look of a turning out to be a non-starter and the game may struggle to get going to become anything too entertaining. The Welsh still have a lot of building to do, but manager Chris Coleman has at least managed to secure his job for a bit longer thanks to a couple of positive results at the end of qualifying. The next target will be to build for the Euro 2016 campaign, but the visiting Finland have proven themselves on the road quite a bit lately.

Wales v Finland Betting Tips:
While Wales rounded out their group with a couple of good results, there is reason not to get carried away. The draw in Belgium was against a side who had already qualified for the 2014 World Cup and a win over Macedonia shouldn’t be misconstrued as a great triumph. Wales haven’t really got themselves together under Chris Coleman very well at all, and while they kick off at home in this one as favourites, it may be worth reining huge optimism for your betting. Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, arguably Wales’ star attractions aren’t exactly going to see this is an important game and that could affect the overall performance. Wales did post just two wins and three defeats from their home matches during World Cup qualifying and overall in their ten matches they only managed to score seven goals. So this is probably a match where going under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/7 with William Hill looks a sound bet. Wales have scored just four goals in their last six matches played.

Finland have been pretty decent on the road and probably shouldn’t be underestimated here. They have scored in eight of their last nine away matches, losing just two of them. They took that fantastic point in Spain during World Cup qualifying, and their only defeat in the group on their travels came in France when Les Bleus scored twice in the last fifteen minutes to flatter the scoreline in a 3-0 victory. Their other three away matches did go under 2.5 goals, so a good indication of where to head for your betting on this one. Like Wales, they are not a high scoring team though, having managed just one in their last three matches. The best option from them to get on the scoresheet is going to be Teemu Pukki who is trading at 3/1 in the Anytime Goalscorer market. A resilient, well organised side and can hold their own in a low key affair.

There have been eleven matches between the two nations before and the honours stand even at four wins each. The last meeting between them was in 2009 during the 2010 World Cup Qualifiers, with Finland winning 2-1 in Helsinki. The last time they met in Wales, the Finnish took a 2-0 victory.

Prediction
Don’t see a lot of goals flying in for this one, in what will probably be a really low key affair and would look for the obvious shot of Under 2.5 Goals for a price of 4/7 with William Hill.

Gareth Bale (Wales)

Wales v Belgium Betting Preview
The Welsh will have been feeling a little bit better after taking a much needed home win against Macedonia on Friday night. A goal from Simon Church sealed the deal for the Welsh, snapping a four match winless streak. They travel to Belgium for their final match of Group A in 2014 World Cup qualifying and there is still a chance they could finish third. But that would require a win and the bookmakers are swinging very firmly the other way.

Wales v Belgium Betting Odds at online bookmaker BetFred
Belgium 1/5, Draw 11/2, Wales 10/1

Online bookmaker Promotion
Not an easy looking match for the Welsh, not given the firepower that the Belgians have in their ranks. Because of great striking options or the home side, it could be worth looking at BetFred’s Double Delight/Hat Trick Heaven promotion. Back a winning First Goalscorer selection and if that pick goes on to score a second or third in the match then you could be paid out double or treble your original odds respectively. Well worth looking at, and new customers registering an account with online betting site BetFred can take advantage of a great free bet as a welcome bonus too.

Wales v Belgium Betting Tips:
The biggest sigh of relief on Friday night will have been released by Wales boss Chris Coleman who has been coming under some fire. Even he admitted that the 1-0 win over Macedonia probably kept him in his job. They finish up with a tough match away against the high flying Belgium, winners of Group A with some style. The bookmakers aren’t giving Wales too much of a chance in this one, and that’s not too surprising. Wales have lost three and won one of their four away matches played in the group so far already. So it is not as if they are carrying any great form on their travels. They were also second best in terms of shots and possession in Cardiff against Macedonia on Friday night. The big positive was that it was another clean sheet for them, totalling up to two clean sheets in their last four. However, a clean sheet for the Welsh doesn’t look likely, and yet Belgium are trading at 5/6 To Win To Nil, which actually does look a pretty decent shot.

Wales have lost their last three matches against Belgium, and in their last nine encounters with the Belgians, the Welsh have managed to keep just the one clean sheet. So that doesn’t bode particularly well for them. The stats just aren’t on the side of the Welsh here. You look at Belgium and see a side which has gone eight international without defeat, and not only that, seven of those have been victories. Their only dropped points in the group so far came against second placed Croatia in a draw, other than that, it has been plain sailing. They have racked up 17 goals and conceded just three along the way. Just to put that into context, Wales have conceded 19 goals so far in their nine matches played.

The big danger up front is looking like Romelu Lukaku, who has to be value in the First Goalscorer market at odds of 5/2 with BetFred. The Everton striker has netted five in his last three appearances for his country, and it was his two goals against Croatia on Friday which confirmed Belgium’s place at the 2014 World Cup. He is a man in form. But you also have the likes of Christian Benteke, Eden Hazard, Nacer Chadli and Kevin Mirallas all around 11/10 in the Anytime Goalscorer market as well. The threats are there for Belgium to really open Wales up, but there is nothing riding on the game, so there’s no need to exert themselves. There could be sensible value of 21/20 in the Total Goals Exactly 2-3 for this one. It sounds about the right mark, and Belgium did only take a 2-0 win against Wales earlier in the group.

Wales - Craig Bellamy Suisse - Goekhan Imler

Wales v Macedonia Betting Preview
Well, the Welsh may have new Real Madrid signing Gareth Bale in their ranks for this one, providing that he is fit. After sealing a move to the Spanish giants on transfer deadline day, Bale is still expected to report for international duty. He has been on the sidelines though because of a foot injury, failing to make a Premier League appearance for Spurs this term. While Wales have started to pull more positive results and performances together, they have probably left it too late to qualify for Brazil 2014.

Wales v Macedonia Betting Tips:
There is still a slim, mathematical chance that the Welsh could make it to Brazil next summer. However, it is a very long shot and highly unlikely. The two dominating powers in the group are Belgium and Croatia, and Wales are ten points behind the second placed Croatians heading into the next round of matches. The Welsh have only won two of their six qualification games played, and both of them came against Scotland. So next on the cards for them is a trip to Macedonia, who are bottom of the group and there could be a good chance for Chris Coleman’s men to grab a win here. This is the first of the two meetings between them in the group (and indeed the first meeting between the two countries ever), and here is an occasion where they could really use the influence of Bale to come in. Bale is the top scorer in the group with four goals in their six games so far.

Wales have lost just one of their last four games, picking up good wins over Austria and Scotland, and their most recent matchup was a home friendly against the Republic of Ireland. Opposing them on Friday night, will be Macedonia, who have won just one of their last five matches. They snapped a four match losing streak with a win over Bulgaria in a friendly and that also snapped a four match run in which they failed to score a single goal. So there isn’t a lot of threat up front from them and have only converted three goals in their six qualification matches for far. Wales have scored double that, but have also conceded double the amount of goals that Macedonia have in Group A. Macedonia’s three previous home matches in the group produced defeat against Belgium and Croatia, and a win over Serbia. So just a bit of hesitation for Wales here, and without Bale, it could be worth taking that 0-0 Bore Draw insurance with Bet365. Hard to see a lot of goals flying in.

Ireland - Giovanni Trapattoni

Wales v Ireland Betting Preview
Another interesting home nations match up this week, as the Irish head to Cardiff to take on the Welsh. The big news out of the pre-match stuff here is that Gareth Bale won’t be in the Welsh squad after pulling out with a foot injury. Bale, whose future with Spurs has been under speculation during the off-season, will be on the sidelines. With Wales struggling through World Cup qualifying, Ireland are still in the hunt for a place in Brazil next summer and will want to keep good form going in this friendly.

Wales v Ireland Betting Tips:
After having taken just two wins and four defeats away from their first six matches of qualification for the 2014 World Cup, the Welsh aren’t going to make it there. So they now need to simply keep building and pushing forward. They will be going without their star attraction of Gareth Bale who had scored five goals in their last six international matches. So his absence will be huge for them. The Welsh have had some patchy results over the last year under Chris Coleman. His reign started with five straight defeats on the bounce, but they have started to fight back a bit. They took two wins over Scotland in their World Cup qualifying group, and also took a friendly win over Austria.

In their three matches played during 2013, Wales have won two and lost one. So maybe they are starting to get on the right track. With home advantage, the bookies are making them a decent shot against Ireland. Giovanni Trapattoni’s men have been ticking along nicely for a while. Some good results have kept them in the hunt for second place in their World Cup Qualifying group, but there are some big matches still to come for them. Robbie Keane has netted five goals in his last two international matches, helping Ireland beat Georgia 4-0 in a friendly and then 3-0 over the Faroe Islands in their World Cup qualifying group, with Keane bagging a hat trick. He’s out of the squad to face Wales though.

Ireland are unbeaten in their six matches played during 2013, winning three and drawing three, including a tie against England at Wembley back in May. Perhaps the telling factor at the end of the day will be the fact that Ireland have kept four clean sheets in their last six matches too. That may be enough to keep Wales at bay and perhaps grab a draw.

The overall head to head stands even between these two. From twelve previous meetings, each has ran up a total of five wins. The last time they came together competitively was in the Euro 2008 qualifiers, meeting in November of 2007 at Cardiff. The game ended in a 2-2 draw, after Ireland have won the home fixture in Dublin. The last friendly between them came in 2011 with Ireland running out 3-0 winners.

Gareth Bale (Wales)

Wales v Croatia Betting Preview
Albeit with some help from Scotland in the end, Wales came away from Glasgow on Friday night with all three points in the bag after falling behind in the game. The Welsh are now up to third in Group A and as good as that sounds, they are still seven points adrift of second placed Croatia. Still, they could cut that down to four with a win in Cardiff, but realistically the Welsh are just playing for pride and the future really, as qualification is still a long way off. At least they have some confidence under their belt.

Wales v Croatia Betting Odds at online bookmaker Bet365
Croatia 8/11, Draw 5/2, Wales 4/1

Wales v Croatia Recommended Bet:
The Welsh have now picked up two wins from their five matches. They have still only scored at an average rate of a goal per game though, while they have conceded at an average rate of over two per game. They took a 2-1 over Scotland on Friday, despite Gareth Bale coming off at half time after getting a knock. The Tottenham player said that he should be fine to face Croatia, but they will be without Aaron Ramsey who got himself sent off at the end of the game. Wales pieced together some nice patches of football against Scotland, but they still struggled to get on the scoresheet, the goals they did score coming with a helping hand from the Scots. They will be in high spirits but the visiting Croatia are a very good side who have only conceded two goals so far in their five qualification matches. Wales do into the match as firm underdogs.

Croatia took a win over bitter rival Serbia on Friday night, keeping up their challenge for top spot alongside the exciting Belgium. Croatia have won four of their first five matches, drawing the other one. Along the way they have scored eight goals, which is a decent return, but it is their defence which has really stood out, having conceded just two. Croatia are a very solid side, a good balance of technique and strength. They should have the upper hand in the match, especially with them having so much at stake. In Croatia’s two other away games, they have earned a 1-1 draw in Belgium and beat Macedonia 2-1.

Croatia are the better team of the two and that’s not really in question. The spirit of Wales though could play a big part in this one to level the playing field a bit. It could be worth taking a Draw/Croatia Half Time/Full Time bet for a look at some value at 3/1 with online bookmaker Bet365.

Wales v Croatia Head To Head
Only three times before have the two sides met, just once competitively. That was the meeting in Osijek earlier in the group, with Croatia cruising to a 2-0 win. This will be the first time that Wales will have hosted Croatia before, and the other two matches, friendly internationals produced another win for Croatia and a draw. Wales have scored just once in those three meetings.

Gareth Bale (Wales)

Scotland v Wales Betting Preview
Nothing quite like a home nations derby for World Cup qualifiers. Here we are with the return match between Scotland and Wales, with both sides desperately in need of a win. With them occupying the bottom two spots in Group A, it’s highly unlikely that we’ll be seeing either of them at Brazil 2014, so this is mostly about pride. Wales came from behind to win in Cardiff, can the Scots exact a bit of revenge?

Scotland v Wales Betting Odds at online bookmaker Ladbrokes
Scotland 5/6, Draw 12/5, Wales 3/1

Scotland v Wales Recommended Bet:
The Scots have to have one plan to try and come up with, and that is how to stop Gareth Bale. The Tottenham winger netted a brace for Wales in Cardiff in beating Scotland last October. They won’t be man-marking him, instead they will be relying on putting enough pressure on Wales to try and keep Bale pushed back. The Scots are the only team in the group who haven’t won a match yet, but have taken two draws. Unfortunately, those two draws came on home soil and were both massively missed opportunities to get their qualification campaign off to a flyer. They took disappointing home draws against Macedonia and Serbia, failing to really capitalize on home advantage. At least new boss Gordon Strachan has a 100% record.

He opened his national managerial career with a 1-0 win over Estonia back in February, a match in which Scotland should have scored more. The problems for Scotland are evident, they have scored just twice in their four matches, but then Wales have a far worse defence. The only points Wales have gotten were from the win over Scotland. Other than that, it has been defeats all the way. On the road they have lost 2-0 at Croatia and were hammered 6-1 by Serbia. The Welsh have only scored three goals in their four matches, so this may not be a high scoring return. Passions will be high, the goal tally, maybe not so such. Should be a tight affair, and following on Wales then host the powerful Croatian side while Scotland go to Serbia.

A nice long history to look back over between these two sides. There have been 106 meetings played between the two before and Scotland lead commandingly with 61 wins to 22 by Wales. There have been seven previous FA Cup qualifying matches, with Scotland leading the way against with three wins to two. The most recent coming together was that 2-1 win for Wales in Cardiff in October of 2012. The last meeting between them in Scotland was in 1997, an International Friendly held in Kilmarnock, which Wales won 1-0. That was the same result in their last World Cup qualifier held in Scotland, a 1-0 win for Wales in Glasgow during the the 1986 World Cup qualifiers.
