After a successful NAP + double yesterday from Kieron’s selection of tips, we go into today with great confidence as I believe to have a couple of very good value tips!
It is the opening round of World Cup 2018 fixtures, and on the match markets – predictably very little value. Only when you look into the handicaps and win to nil’s do you find anything worth putting money on.
Kazakhstan vs Poland: Poland Win to Nil @ 6/5 (Group E, 17:00 KO – NAP)
Poland had a decent tournament at Euro 2016, and looked very solid defensively. One thing I have learned over the last 4 years is that in Qualifying processes – threat is a big thing – and the likes of Kazakhstan shouldn’t have the weaponry to worry the likes of Poland. With the likes of Piszczek and Glik in their back four, they should keep the Kazakhs at bay, and with Lewandowski and Milik leading the line – have more than enough to break them down.
Norway vs Germany: Germany -1 Goal Handicap @ 6/5 (Group C, 19:45 KO)
Again, as above – threat is huge. Germany have been a little iffy at the back over the last year or so, but very good going forward. There is no need for me to reel off a load of names – we know what Germany can do, and after a difficult group for the Euro 2016 qualifying, they will be pleased to have a more manageable group, and against a decent Norway side I can see a 2-0 win.
This pays in the region of 4/1 with most bookmakers – and if you want a 3rd option, England to Win @ 1/1 for me is another good little bet!
Best of luck for the day!
