World Cup 2018 Qualifying - Europe

Postby Robmull » Mon Aug 29, 2016 5:44 pm

With the first round of qualification group matches less than 1 week away, it is probably a good time to start considering whether there are any value bets to be found in the Group winner markets and of course the initial qualification group matches.

It would be great if members shared there thoughts on this topic and to start the ball rolling, I have used my personal International Ratings as a basis for finding what I believe to be a couple of interesting and hopefully profitable wagers in respect of Group B, which I have detailed in my blog (link below):

Good luck Robmull. I was given Group A. I was disappointed with the lack of markets currently available.

I expected at least a forecast or top group goalscorer to be available.

I often like the Asian Handicap markets in the qualifying campaign with there being plenty of unbackable match odds available.

Thanks undertherobe and the best of luck to you too.

I agree that the number of group based markets is not great, but I guess that in many cases the groups are rather uncompetitive, so the bookmakers tend to be wary.

I must admit that I am not a great fan of Asian Handicaps when sides are having to give up/receive more than 2.5 goals, as I often wonder whether the superior side will go for the kill and therefore boost their goal difference, or just be content with a dominant 1 or 2 goal margin of victory.

For anyone who is interested, I have just updated my blog in respect of Group B with my thoughts and recommendations for the 3 matches that are scheduled for Tuesday, 6 September, which includes a strong value bet for the game between Switzerland and Portugal.

It would be good to know what other members think regarding this early potential group deciding game and any of the other qualification group matches that are to be played over the next few days.
