Chile, Wales and Republic of Ireland feature in Thursday World Cup qualifiers tips
Five World Cup qualifiers tips for October 6th
World Cup qualifying for the 2018 edition in Russia continues this Thursday, so Coral football experts got their heads together and provide five potential punts for you to back.
With British Isles outfits Wales and the Republic of Ireland among those in action, they naturally feature. What other countries are included among our World Cup qualifiers tips for October 6th, though?
Read on as we reveal all and a terrific Thursday acca for you to consider too…
Vokes odds to score anytime in Austria
Burnley target man Sam Vokes is not as lauded as Wales teammate and national talisman Gareth Bale, but rates a greater value bet to strike again at 11/4 anytime as Chris Coleman takes his crew on a trip to Vienna.
Both Bale and Vokes found the target last time the Dragons played Austria, while they also found the net in their World Cup qualifying opener against Moldova. Vokes odds are better, so take those over Real Madrid star Bale.
Republic of Ireland to win to nil against Georgia
In both of the last two home matches with Georgia, the Republic of Ireland shut their opposition out while winning, and they are evens to do so again.
With Martin O’Neill steering the Irish to three home competitive wins to nil on the spin at the end of the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, he will thus expect a miserly defence to remain in place.
Italy and Spain to draw
Three of the last six meetings from Euro 2012 onwards between the Azzurri and La Roja have ended level. Siding with Spain to take a point from their trip to Italy rewards punters with nifty 19/10 odds.
Both European powerhouses are under new management, yet face each other so soon after their Euro 2016 knockout phase encounter that many of the players know what to expect here. A share of the spoils make sense.
Chile to beat Ecuador
Successive Copa America champions Chile have a better squad than hosts Ecuador on paper. That class can overcome the high altitude of Quito and record victory at 12/5.
From among Chile bets this is a bold one, but they have lost just one of their last seven matches, while Ecuador have lost three in a row coming into this encounter.
Thursday acca: European fivefold
Back in Europe, our recommended Thursday acca is made up of five European teams; Serbia (4/11), the Republic of Ireland (4/9), Wales (12/5), Iceland (4/6) and Croatia (8/15)*.
We’ve touched above on reasons why the British Isles duo can do well, while the Serbs play minnows Moldova, England’s Euro 2016 giant-killers Iceland meet Nordic rivals Finland and the Blazers battle Kosovo.
At current combined odds of more than 16/1, a €/£2 stake on this acca will return €/£34. All our chosen quintet all facing lesser or winnable opposition this could really pay off.
If you follow our five selections, you should qualify for Coral’s acca insurance. Simply place a fivefold or more, and if a single selection lets you down, then you’ll get your money back as a free bet.
Please note the maximum refund is €/£20 and the minimum combined odds that this offer will apply to are 3/1. You must stake a minimum of €/£2.
