Football Tips // Friday


Morning all

Just four selections today – all from the European Championship Quals:

1. Cyprus Win Both Halves @ 6/4 vs Andorra (1945 KO)

Cyprus won the reverse fixture 5-0, and with Cristofi (their top scorer) in good form, I wouldn’t bet against a similar scoreline, as Andorra have conceded 20 goals in 5 games so far. Last time the first half ended 3-0, and the 2nd 2-0. Cyprus can still get a playoff spot if all goes well and they surprise a few teams like they did against Bosnia – unlikely but a heavy win here would help.

2. Holland Over 2.5 Team Goals @ 21/20 vs Latvia (1945 KO, NAP)

Holland sit 5 points behind 2nd placed Iceland, and even more behind the Czech Republic. With Turkey playing Kazakhstan, they really need a win – and one similar to the last, which was a 6-0 win in the reverse game. Depay, RVP and Huntelaar look set to start up-front, and with the creativity of Wijnaldum, Sneijder and Clasie behind, I can see another 3-5 goals for them.

3. Turkey-Kazakhstan Over 2.5 Goals @ Evens (1700 KO)

This is a very well priced bet – last time out it ended 3-1 to Turkey, and the Kazakhs are better at home than away (4-2 loss to the Czech’s was a cracking game). Both average around 3 goals per game so far, so I’m expecting a few here – Turkey + Over 2.5 Goals is currently 11/8, but this for me is a safer option incase of a shock loss/draw

4. Czech Rep-Iceland Over 2.5 Goals @ 7/5 (1945 KO)

In the Czech Republic’s 5 games so far, all have gone BTTS, and all have gone over 2.5 goals. In the reverse, it ended 2-1 to the CR. Iceland have conceded just 2 goals so far, both in that game mentioned. They have scored double figures now, so are a massive threat going forward, and very good at the back. Both will be angling for the win as that would all but guarantee them a place next summer.]


Holland are my favourite bet for today – but here are my variations of the four:

1. NAP – Holland Over 2.5 Team Goals @ 21/20

2. Double: Holland Over 2.5 TG’s (21/20) + Turkey-Kazakhstan Over 2.5 Goals (Evens) @ 3.2/1

3. Treble: Double + Cyprus WBH (6/4) @ 9.5/1

4. Accumulator: All Four @ 23/1


Tips for the 3 Copa America games will be posted a little later on…

Best of luck!
