Wales vs Austria - World Cup Qualifier Betting Preview

Tonight sees Wales take on Austria in a game where both teams are going to pushing hard for a place at this year's World Cup.

The European qualifying playoffs are known to through up some drama and surprises so both teams will be wary coming into this one and it could create something of a nervy start to the game.

On paper it is a really tough game to call and that is reflected at the bookies where no bookmaker seems to be able to seperate the teams in the odds and there is no clear favourite. This can play to our advantage as it pushes the odds out into the value area.

Home advantage will be a big factor for Wales tonight and I don't believe this has been accurately priced into the bookmakers odds at the moment. 

If I was pushed for a correct score selection, I would go for 2-1 to Wales - which is available at odds of around 10/1 with most bookmakers.

I think it will be a tight game but as both teams need to push for the win tonight I think there will be goals.

So, for my pick of the bets in this one, I have gone for:

  • Both Teams to Score @ 2.05

This represents good value given the stakes at play tonight and with both teams having players that are in scoring form I think we will come away with the profit from this selection this evening.
