Wales v Iran
After a draw in their opening match, Wales will be desperate to secure three points here with the daunting task of playing England in their final game.
That’s easier said than done considering Wales have gone six straight matches without a win and only kept one clean sheet in their last 12.
Iran looked vulnerable on crosses against England so expect the Welsh to hammer them in the air and win a fair share of corners. Considering Iran had 0 corners against England, there should be a fair game between the sides in this match.
If looking for value, Wales -2, -3 or -4 on corners represents huge value. Other markets I’m taking in this one are Both Teams to Score at $2.07 and Mehdi Taremi Anytime Goalscorer at $3.80.
Qatar v Senegal
Both sides copped 2-0 losses in their opening games but their was a stark contrast in performance. Qatar looked out of their depth from the opening whistle, while Senegal impressed and were unlucky to concede two late goals to the Dutch.
With both sides desperate for three points here the unders looks the best play with whoever scores first likely to try and slow down play and hold on for a win.
Senegal have the talent and the optics of the better side here and will take confidence from their loss whereas the path for success really isn’t there for Qatar. They only managed two touches in the Ecuador box in the opening game so the scoring threat is almost non-existent.
Netherlands v Ecuador
Ecuador have not conceded a goal since March, the Netherlands are unbeaten in 16 straight games. This one looks destined for a stalemate so there are plenty of markets to take advantage of here.
Both teams secured three points in their opener so a draw would be very beneficial for both teams here but don’t expect this to be a friendly affair.
Scoring should be low but frustration will be high and the Over 4.5 Cards at $2.43 should make this game an enjoyable watch. There were nine total cards across these sides’ opening matches.
The unders on goals, shots, shots on target are all worth a look for multis.
England v USA
The 2021 South American Referee of the Year Jesus Valenzuela loves dishing out cards. Loves it. It’s all he does in the Liga Venezolana.
The man will be looking to make an impact on the world stage and assert his authority on this match.
The value on offer for a Red Card In The Match $4.95 and Over 6.5 Cards $8.75 can’t be ignored.
If not keen to follow along the cards for the match, the Both Teams to Score at $1.89 looks a strong play for an England team oozing firepower but weak defensively and a US side who need to make a splash after their 1-1 draw.
Senegal / Wales -1 Corners / Over 3.5 Cards (Netherlands v Ecuador) / Over 3.5 Cards (England vs USA) – $8.18
