Wales v Ireland Predictions & Betting Odds – 9th October 2017

World Cup Betting
Wales v Ireland Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 9th October It is incredible that everything has come down to this. This is now a straight shoot out between the two nations to try and muscle their way to the World Cup. It’s a fascinating scenario. A win for either one of them could see them claim the top spot. Equally, with a loss, the loser will be out. Wales do have a slight advantage in that they only need a draw out of this to hold on to second place, but with Serbia slipping up against Austria on Friday, automatic qualification has now become a factor too.

Wales v Ireland Betting Tips

Well, this is it then. The battle for qualification was heading here and on Monday in Cardiff Wales and Ireland will showdown to see who finishes in the top two. Wales nabbed a 1-0 win in Georgia on Friday to hold on to second place, fending off Ireland to beat Moldova in Dublin. So all of that leaves Wales in second place but now only a point back of leaders Serbia who lost 3-2 at Austria. So that means if Serbia slip up again, the winner of this match could win the group. But Serbia only faces Georgia at home and will probably win it. So this is more realistically a battle for second place in the group and Wales because they can qualify with a point. Whether that would be enough to see them finish as one of the best runners up is a different matter. This is bound to be tense and both of these sides struggle for goals so under 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 8/15. Wales do have home form in the campaign as they have produced a W2 D2 record in Cardiff, the wins coming over Austria and Moldova. They played out a 0-0 draw when they want to Ireland earlier in the campaign and in the bet365 correct score market a repeat 0-0 outcome is a price of 7/1. Wales are missing Gareth Bale as the Real Madrid man is out injured for Wales of course and they found some unlikely heroes lately with Tom Lawrence getting his first goal for Wales against Georgia on Friday, while young Ben Woodburn got the only goal of the game in their last home match, a 1-0 win over Austria in September. A brace from Daryl Murphy gave Ireland a 2-0 home win over Moldova on Friday and that kept them on track for a shot at qualification. A draw isn’t good enough for Ireland here so they are the ones to have to take some kind of initiative in the group. Murphy is a 3/1 bet365 anytime goalscorer option, with Wales’ Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes trading as joint 9/4 favourites. Ireland have scored two goal less than Wales have in the campaign and away from home they have produced a W2 D2 record and in that sequence, they have conceded in three of their four. Both teams not to score at bet365 in this is a price of 4/6. Three of the last four between Wales and Ireland have been drawn with Ireland going unbeaten in their last five against the Welsh (W2 D3).

Wales v Ireland Betting Odds

Wales even money, Draw 9/4, Ireland 9/4

Wales v Ireland Predictions

Draw: It is hard to see past the draw with the lack of goals that both nations have produced. Ireland have to throw more at this, but Wales have done well defensively in the group and can stick in there and grind out the point to get them through.

Georgia v Wales Predictions & Betting Odds – 6th October 2017

World Cup Betting
Georgia v Wales Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 6th October Wales will want three points in this one and in doing so that will guarantee that they go into the final match against Ireland only needing to avoid defeat to hold on to the second place. The Welsh will be heading out into this one without talisman Gareth Bale though to take on Georgia, who they failed to beat earlier in the group on home soil. Wales need a big night out in Tbilisi to keep on pushing towards reaching the 2018 World Cup.

Georgia v Wales Betting Tips

The big news then is that Gareth Bale won’t be fit for this one, nor the play offs probably if Wales get there. The only ones happy about that will be Georgia and Ireland, who the Welsh face over the next week. Georgia are eliminated from qualification with only a D5 L3 record on the board, but they have shown patches of resilience, such as their 1-1 draw in Cardiff in the group, to suggest that they are going to give Wales a rough ride. Wales need points, not only to lock in a top two finish but if they end up in second then they will need to have enough to be one of the eight best runners up from the nine groups. Results against the bottom side in the group won’t count towards sorting out the best eight of nine runners-up, so their six points against Moldova in the campaign will be wiped out (assuming Moldova finishes bottom) which technically puts the Welsh on just eight points going into this one. Of the nine teams sitting in second place in UEFA qualification groups, the Welsh already have the lowest points tally. The loss of Bale is huge for Wales. The Real Madrid forward has scored four of their twelve qualification group goals and suddenly without him, this away game looks even trickier. Bale scored in that 1-1 home draw against Georgia back in October last year. In the bet365 correct score mark at a 1-1 draw is a price of 11/2, with only a Wales 1-0 shorter at 9/2. They are going to need a big performance up front from someone. Hal Robson-Kanu is the 12/5 anytime goalscorer favourite with Sam Vokes at 7/4. Wales have drawn four of their last six games (W2) but with back to back wins in their last two, need to push on with that momentum. Wales are not likely to suffer a defeat here as they have taken a point at Serbia, Ireland and Austria in the group as part of their overall W3 D5 L0 record. The Welsh need more than a point realistically in this fixture. Both teams to score at bet365 returns a price of 6/5 and that gets a mention as both teams have scored in seven of Georgia's eight qualifiers. Will Wales be able to produce enough going forward to get the job done in what will be their first competitive game out in Georgia? Even though Georgia haven’t won in the group they have been competitive and in their last two qualifiers they have picked up a 1-1 draw against Austria and Ireland. That alone sends a warning sign to Wales, who have not won a match without Gareth Bale since 2013, drawing three and losing three matches in his absence. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 fetches a price of 1/2.

Georgia v Wales Betting Odds

Wales even money, Draw 12/5, Georgia 10/3

Georgia v Wales Predictions

Wales to win: While the Welsh will be missing the presence of Bale, they are facing a side who have already been eliminated from qualification and who have failed to beat Moldova on home soil. Wales can go there and grab a narrow victory. It doesn't matter how, just that they do.

Moldova v Wales Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th September 2017

World Cup Betting
Moldova v Wales Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 5th September The Welsh put themselves in contention for a place at the World Cup next summer with a narrow home win over Austria on the weekend. That leaves them two points back of the second placed Ireland heading into Tuesday’s fixture, but the Irish have a tough game on their hands against group leaders Serbia. Will Wales be able to take advantage and heap some pressure on by landing and away win in Moldova? That would leave things pretty interesting in this tight group with two to play. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then Bet365 will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet through their great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook.

Moldova v Wales Betting Tips

Wales took a 1-0 home win over Austria on the weekend, and that has boosted their chances of making the top two in the group. Wales have posted a W2 D5 record in the group so far so they are unbeaten and resilient. This should be one of the easier games of course that they have to finish out the campaign with as Moldova have just the two points from their seven games played in the group so far. Earlier in the group, the Welsh posted a 4-0 win over Moldova with Gareth Bale getting a brace in the game. In the bet365 First Goalscorer market, Bale is a price of 15/8, with Sam Vokes at 15/4. The Dragons rode their luck against Austria on Saturday, as they were second best for large portions of the game, particularly in the first half and offered very little creativity. But they got what they needed and forge forwards. In the bet365 correct score market, a Wales 2-0 option returns a price of 9/2. Wales have never played out in Moldova before so this is something new for them to deal with. But they aren’t facing any real quality and indeed, Moldova are on a 17 match winless streak in competitive action at the moment and against the top four in the group, they have lost all five played so far. So Wales should get out of this with a win and it will have been a tremendously successful international break. There’s nothing wrong with a Wales to win to nil bet at bet365 for a price of 10/11 as Moldova have scored just the four goals in qualification so far and three of those were in their two draws with Georgia. Moldova can’t get to Russia 2018 of course from here and may be disinterested. A Wales/Wales half time/full time bet is a price of even money going into the game.

Moldova v Wales Betting Odds

Wales 2/5, Draw 16/5, Moldova 8/1

Moldova v Wales Predictions

Wales to win: This is a nice game for Wales after the stresses and tests that they faced against Austria. The Welsh can go out and play with a bit of confidence and win this to nil. A good 2-0 option on the away side looks decent value.

Wales v Austria Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd September 2017

World Cup Betting
Wales v Austria Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 2nd September A big game for both Wales and Austria as they are sat level on eight points in Group D after six games. That means that they are both four points back of second placed Ireland and have some catching up do to. A loss in this one for either would really unravel qualification hopes. It’s a big game and the incentive is there for both to go out and go for broke in getting the win because ultimately a draw isn’t likely going to be enough for either. As part of their great football betting services, Bet365 offer 0-0 bore draw insurance on all matches which offers great protection on your pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wagers.

Wales v Austria Betting Tips

Wales are running out of time in the group to try and get a place at the World Cup 2018. They are four points back of the second-placed Ireland heading into the next round of matches and so they have some serious ground to make up. Wales have remained unbeaten in the group but have played out draws in five of their six games. Russia next summer won’t likely be an option if they lose this, so this really has the feel of being a must-win game for them. There was a 2-2 draw between Austria and Wales in Vienna in the earlier group meeting, Austria recovering from falling behind twice in the game. Gareth Bale makes a return and he is the obvious 11/10 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for this. Wales have taken 1-1 draws against Serbia and Georgia while banking a 4-0 win over Moldova at home in the group. A 1-1 draw in the bet365 correct score market is in at an appealing price of 5/1. The Welsh are unbeaten in nine home games now. Austria are sat level on points with Wales, only behind on goal difference so they are in the same position as the Welsh are. They need to break out a win in this one. After their great Euro 2016 qualification campaign, more was expected of Austria really, but they have they have won just two of their last fourteen matches played. That having been said though, Austria have triumphed in two of their last four visits to Wales, most recently losing a 2013 friendly there by a 2-1 scoreline. Because both of these really need a win at this stage of qualification, this should be a good game. Both teams to score at bet365 fetches a price of even money and that has happened in the last two clashes. Austria have lost 3-2 at Serbia, have taken a 1-1 draw in Ireland and scraped a 2-1 win in Georgia in their three away games in the group so far, and overall from their six games, there has been just the one clean sheet from them. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 5/4. The Austrians rely heavily on Marko Arnautovic, who scored both of their goals in the 2-2 draw with Wales and he is a 10/3 anytime goalscorer option with Marc Janko at 9/4.

Wales v Austria Betting Odds

Wales 6/5, Draw 23/10, Austria 9/4

Wales v Austria Predictions

Draw: Because there was nothing to split them in the first game and because of all the drawn games that Wales have played out, the draw has to have appeal in this one. Settling for a draw suits neither of them, but neither may be able to come up with a winner.

Serbia v Wales Predictions & Betting Odds – 11th June 2017

World Cup Betting
Serbia v Wales Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 11th June Wales have a big battle on Sunday as they take on group leaders Serbia. The Welsh have some big ground to make up in qualification as they trail the top two by four points. So if they could pull out a win in this one they would boost their chances significantly. It won't be an easy game for them though because Serbia will see an opportunity to take a giant step towards Russia next summer. Take advantage of some fantastic football betting products available at online betting site Bet365. For starters, there is their great 0-0 bore draw insurance available on all matches which offers great protection on your pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wagers.

Serbia v Wales Betting Tips

Serbia will look to hold on to the top spot in the World Cup 2018 qualifying Group D, were they are edging out Ireland on goal difference. So this is a big home advantage for them in this game, meaning that it’s a fantastic opportunity to take a step towards Russia because it would pretty much Wales out of the picture. Serbia took a 1-1 draw in Wales earlier in the group and they remain unbeaten in a W3 D2 record in the group. Their home form in the group reads W1 D1, having been held by Ireland 2-2 and having beaten Austria 3-2. There have been plenty of goals around then and over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a quote of 13/10 which may be worth a flutter. Serbia’s only previous home game against Wales saw them record a huge 6-1 victory. It is a bit of a stretch to expect a repeat of that and a Serbia 1-0 in the bet365 correct score market is the shortest priced option. Serbia have a bunch of players around the 7/4 mark in the anytime goalscorer market for the game, which shows how dangerous they can be. Serbia have averaged over two goals per game in qualification and will be a massive threat to the Welsh back line. Their joint top scorers with four goals each in qualification are Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dusan Tadic. Tough game for Wales, because they miss their top scorer Gareth Bale through suspension. So while he is off golfing, Wales are going to battling to keep their qualification hopes alive. They have only suffered one defeat in their last 17 World Cup or European qualifiers and have gone W1 D4 in their World Cup 2018 qualifying group. A point would be a decent return from a tough game, but that’s not likely to help them in the bigger picture of qualification. Both teams to score at bet365 is a quote of 11/10 and the Serbians do struggle for clean sheets.

Serbia v Wales Betting Odds

Serbia 7/10, Draw 5/2, Wales 17/4

Serbia v Wales Predictions

Serbia to win: Worth a flutter on both teams to score as Serbia aren’t great at the back at all. Wales though miss Bale importantly and at the end of the day, as resilient as they have been, Serbia have the firepower to make the most of this chance on home soil.

Coral
Wales need a big game from Gareth Bale on Friday night as the Dragons face off against Ireland in something of a must-win game.

Ireland v Wales World Cup 2018 Qualifying Predictions & Betting Odds – 24th March 2017

Ireland
Ireland v Wales Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 24th March With both of these defending unbeaten starts to World Cup 2018 qualification, there are big points at stake in Dublin on Friday night. This fixture sees Ireland, who are top of UEFA Group D try and maintain their grip on that automatic qualification spot. They will do that with a win and that would give themselves a comfortable cushion in the top two. Wales are four points off the top already but a win would see them haul themselves fully into contention just the one point behind the Irish. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Ireland v Wales Betting Tips

It has been a fine start to World Cup 2018 qualifying as they have collected ten points from twelve available. This will be their second home game in the qualifying campaign after putting a 1-0 win on the board against Georgia in their other home fixture. This probably isn’t going to be a game which is stacked with goals and an Ireland 1-0 correct score bet at Bet365 is a price of 5/1. Ireland have won their last two at home against Wales, one of those being a 1-0 victory back in 2007. Ireland have taken  a clean sheet in three of their last four games against the Dragons and in the World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign, two of their three wins have been with a 1-0 scoreline. You can alternatively look at an Ireland to win to nil wager at Bet365 which is a price of 5/2. James McClean is top scorer for them with two of their seven goals in the qualification campaign and the midfielder is a 7/2 anytime goalscorer option. There are doubts about his fitness for the match though. Ireland do miss Daryl Murphy and Shane Duffy who are out through injury. The overall head to head history between Ireland and Wales is split evenly with five wins each and three draws. Ireland though are undefeated in their last six games against Wales, and that runs goes all the way back to 1992. Of the thirteen previous international which they have contested, there have only been the two 0-0 draws. Martin O’Neill’s Ireland have averaged over two goals per game in their last five played so they are running in good form at the moment. Ireland, who have lost just one of their last nine games on home soil, look well poised to take qualification for Russia next summer by the scruff of the neck. A draw isn’t a bad result for Ireland, while the impetus is on Wales to come out and look for the win, because the Dragons desperately need to close the gap on both Ireland and Serbia. There is a decent chance that second-placed Serbia will beat Georgia on Friday in the group as well. Wales have posted a W1 D3 record from their four World Cup 2018 qualification matches so far, and they just haven’t quite been there. They haven’t lived up to the hype that their epic Euro 2016 campaign delivered. Their only previous away game in the qualification process for Russia 2018 was out in Austria when the Welsh dug in there for a decent 2-2 draw. You do have to go back to October 2015 to find the last occasion of Wales suffering a defeat in a qualifying match for a major international tournament which was against Bosnia and Herzegovina. After they had opened World Cup 2018 qualification with a win over Moldova, Wales have gone on to draw three on the bounce. Gareth Bale is 11/8 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for them and Aaron Ramsey is a 15/4 option. Although they may not admit it, this really is a must win game for the Welsh, defeat could really see them cut adrift.

Ireland v Wales Betting Odds

Ireland 7/5, Draw 2/1, Ireland 11/5

Ireland v Wales Predictions

Ireland Home Win: This will probably be a tight scrap because Wales have yet to taste defeat in qualification, just like the Irish. So there is value in looking under 2.5 goals on this one, but Ireland have a nice bit of momentum going for them and they should be value enough in the match outright to back to win the game.

Wales v Argentina Rugby Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Rugby Betting
The Welsh need a big bounceback performance as they were played off the park against Australia last weekend in a crushing defeat. The Welsh lost 32-8 and the scoreline could have been bigger against them were it not for some desperate last ditch defending and some fluffs by the Australians in good attacking positions. The scoreline probably should have been a lot worse for the Welsh. So a tough start for Wales then in the Autumn Internationals but they go as 1/2 favourites at Paddy Power to land the win over the Pumas on Saturday. Wales weren’t at their strongest against Australia and they get back Sam Warburton and Alun Wyn Jones for this latest test, with Jamie Roberts dropping to the bench. Six changes in all will be made from the starting fifteen last weekend by interim coach Robert Howley. They certainly need to improve their defensive output because it was pretty poor against the Wallabies. Argentina warmed up last weekend with a 54-20 win over Japan and of course they have been playing a lot of rugby lately having come off the back of the Rugby Championship campaign. They won just one of their six matches in the competition this year but they did manage to actually outscore Australia and South Africa in total points put on the board. They had by far and away the worst defensive record though. Argentina’s lone win came over South Africa. So they aren’t exactly a huge threat at the moment and they are trailing the head to head against Wales 5-10. The last time they met was back in 2013 when the Welsh ran out huge 40-6 winners on the day and the momentum really is with Wales who have won four of the last five meetings between the two. Wales are a price of 1/2 to take the win on Saturday with Argentina at 17/10 for the win. From their previous meetings, Wales have averaged 28 points per game against the Pumas, while in return Argentina have averaged 23 against Wales. So there have been pretty high scoring games between these two and the average points difference in meetings is only the five points in favour of Wales. So that means you can probably push the handicap line a bit in this one. An Argentina +5 is a price of 10/11 for example at Paddy Power. Bookmaker Paddy Power are running a big promotion for the autumn internationals. Back a team in the match outright on a autumn international and if your team is winning at 70 minutes in the game, but then fails to win the match, Paddy Power will give you your money back as a free bet up to the maximum value of £20!

Wales v Serbia Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th November 2016

World Cup Betting
Wales v Serbia Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 12th November Big game for the Welsh because they can’t afford to lose this home game on Saturday in their World Cup 2018 Qualification group. The Welsh are two points behind leaders Serbia at the moment and so a five point deficit would see their chances of automatically taking a place at Russia 2018 diminish greatly. But this is a tough game for them because the Serbians are running on a seven match unbeaten streak and they have started pretty solidly and the goals have been flowing from them. Will Wales be able to bag what would be a massively important three points with home advantage?

Wales v Serbia Betting Tips

Wales, and their boss Chris Coleman will remember Serbia not too fondly. Four years ago they were paired together with the Serbians in World Cup 2014 qualification and the Welsh were smashed. Wales suffered a big 6-1 defeat on the road against them, and were brushed aside 3-0 back at home against them. That 6-1 loss, in what was Coleman’s fourth game in charge of the nation, was the worst start made by any Wales manager in history. But they have come a long way since that shambolic defending after making their run to Euro 2016 semi finals. Now they are back at it again to try and reach the World Cup 2018. Wales would move one point clear of Serbia if they can land the win at home, the Welsh having gone W1 D2 over their first three games. Their 4-0 opening win over Moldova was followed by draws against Austria and Georgia. So already this will be the third home game so far for Wales in this campaign. Home advantage has to be fully taken here because the group looks as if it will be a tight affair. This will be then just the third meeting between the two countries and this one to go over 2.5 goals like the other two have done is a decent shot of 8/13 with online betting site Sky Bet. Both teams to score in the match will return a price of 19/20 as well with the bookmaker and considering that between theme they have scored fifteen goals in their qualifiers so far, it looks value. Gareth Bale is trading at price of 21/20 in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. Wales always need a big game from him. So Serbia have been going well pushing forward with over two goals per game so far. They are top of the qualification group with seven points and punters will probably see a bit of value in them. They have collected seven points from their three games so far, opening with a 2-2 draw with Ireland, then putting back to back wins together over Moldova and Serbia, netting three goals in each of those victories as well. They have a couple of familiar faces with Southampton's Dusan Tadic and Newcastle’s Aleksandar Mitrovic both having netted two qualification goals for them. Mitrovic is a 12/5 punt in the anytime goalscorer market at Sky Bet with Tadic at 7/2 and that’s not to mention other threats through Aleksandar Pecic and Andrija Pavlovic around the 11/4 mark. So the Serbians are in good form at the moment with no loss in any of their last seven competitions matches. They have also netted at least two goals in five of their last seven (including friendlies) so they have what it takes to trouble the Welsh. The Welsh though will see that the Serbian defence hasn’t been water right and will be hoping that continues. Serbia would probably be unhappy with point in this one away from home and that will add to their resilience on Saturday. If a win comes their way it is likely to be with a clean sheet, so Serbia to go out and win to nil in this one will return you a price of 15/4, a huge shot. There is a tempting shot on the draw to be in place at half time and a Draw/Wales half time/full time option is a 9/2 shot with a Draw/Serbia half time/full time option at 11/2.

Wales v Serbia Betting Odds

Wales 13/10, Draw 11/5, Serbia 21/10

Wales v Serbia Predictions

This is likely to be a close call. Wales have failed to win any of their last two and that sequence may continue as they take on Serbia who have gone unbeaten in their last seven. So not an easy game for either of them and the visitors do carry an attacking threat to trouble the Welsh. This may all balance out at the end of the evening with a point for each. Look for the draw in the match outright.
