Wales v Austria World Cup Qualifying Betting Guide: 2nd Sept 2017


Saturday 2nd September 2017

Wales v Austria 19:45

The World Cup qualifying continues this Saturday and with Wales hosting Austria this game stands out as a decent one to have a punt on.

The sides sit third and fourth in Group D, both on 8 points – and the fact they are just 4 points adrift of the top two, Serbia and Rep of Ireland – then a win for either side will be massive.

The match betting suggests a tight game with Wales 2.25, the draw 3.30 and Austria 3.60.

They met last October in a 2-2 draw in Austria and a repeat of that score can be backed at 17.00.

Austria’s Marko Arnautovic scored a brace that day so the 4.33 on him scoring at anytime catches the eye, while it goes without saying Welsh superstar Gareth Bale at 2.00 anytime, or 3.75 to score first will be popular too.

4 of the last 6 head-to-heads went UNDER 2.5 GOALS so at 1.57 this is another option, but at the moment both sides are draw specialists – Wales have drawn ALL of their last 5, while Austria have drawn 4 of their last 5.

With that in mind, the 3.30 on another stalemate looks decent value and gets the nod here.
