With 2 wins from four today (and the NAP & 4/1 double landing nicely too) we go into the Internationals after a good day! I posted my 7 picks for the next three days very early this morning, so for those who would like to see the reasoning behind each tip – you can view that Preview by clicking here!
Otherwise – here is my four-fold accumulator picked from those picks:
(1) Belarus vs France: France Win to Nil @ 21/20 (Tuesday, 19:45 KO)
(2) Israel vs Italy: Italy Win to Nil @ 11/8 (Monday, 19:45 KO)
(3) Kazakhstan vs Poland: Poland Win to Nil @ 6/5 (Sunday, 17:00 KO)
(4) Georgia vs Austria: Austria Win to Nil @ 15/8 (Monday, 17:00 KO)
I know they are all win to nil bets – but for me, at International level and especially in qualifying – there are often few goals, and teams seeing out games with a 1-0 lead. Points are worth more than goal difference, and to get early points on the board is vital!
Belarus, Israel, Kazakhstan and Georgia are all playing vastly better nations, with terrific defences’. France have Koscielny, Umtiti and many more. Italy have the likes of Chiellini and Bonucci. Poland have Piszczek and Glik, and Austria have Dragovic, Hinteregger and Fuchs. All very solid back lines – Austria had a tough group and conceded just 5 goals in the Euro 2016 quals. Italy only conceded 7, while Poland in a group with Germany, Ireland and Scotland conceded an average of a goal per game – but in the actual Euro’s only conceded 2 goals in 5 games in normal time (90 mins).
With Bet365, this pays around the 30/1 mark, while with William Hill – it is 27/1. Paddy Power have all four priced but won’t allow them to be put together in an accumulator unfortunately otherwise it would have paid around 32/1.
Best of luck!
