Mar 24: World Cup Betting Preview

Written by

WALES have turned into draw specialists since reaching the Euro 2016 finals.

Chris Coleman’s men have drawn their last three and a fourth is on the agenda when they face the Republic of Ireland in Dublin.

A stalemate will suit the Irish after a barnstorming start to Group x. They top the table with 10 points for four games while Wales have six and trail Serbia by two.

The Aviva has sold out and it won’t be for the faint-hearted as Martin O’Neill’s men go all out to protect their advantage.

Wales have only beaten the Irish once in nine attempts and the last clash was scoreless in 2013.

I don’t see many goals and under 2.5 looks the call at 8-15 with Marathonbet – although the Irish will be without first-choice centre-halves Shane Duffy and Ciaran Clark. No scorer pays 6-1 at William Hill while 1-1 is 11-2 with McBookie.

Ireland are favourites at 31-20 with Paddy Power but there’s little between the sides. Wales are 12-5 at betfair but I’m on draw at 21-10 with bet365.

Coleman is relieved to have Gareth Bale back after injury and the Real Madrid man will as usual be a popular choice to score first at 21-5 with Marathonbet and any time at 13-10 with bet365.

For the Irish they will look to players such as Shane Long, Jon Walters and James McLean.

Elsewhere tonight Italy and Spain are short prices to beat Albania and Israel respectively but there could be value in backing Iceland at Kosovo.

The Kosovans have lost three in a row to nil, conceding 11 goals, and Iceland are a best 2-5 at McBookie. To win without conceding they are 13-10 at Paddy Power.

Bets to Consider

Ireland v Wales draw

Iceland to win to nil
