England were the only side to let us down in this weekend’s 37/1 acca (don’t worry lads, we won’t hold it against you!). And the generous folk over in our trading team are sympathising with punters, agreeing to bump up the returns of our midweek picks.
That means we’re offering 66/1 on a five-fold featuring Italy, France and Belgium.
In fact, four of our five picks are currently sitting at the top of their respective World Cup 2018 qualifying groups.
This has to be a banker, doesn’t it?
Bosnia and Herzegovina to beat Albania
Bosnia head into this one having won four of their last six games in all competitions, while Albania are struggling for form of late, losing their last three games without finding the net.
The last time this pair met, Bosnia ran out 2-0 winners. We wouldn’t be surprised to see a repeat of that scoreline, especially with the hosts’ inability to find the net.
Belgium to beat Russia
One side that aren’t struggling in that department though is Roberto Martinez’s Belgium.
They’ve netted a mind-boggling 23 goals in their last six outings in all competitions, and they’re up against a side who have slid down to 51 in the FIFA world rankings.
Defeats against Qatar, Costa Rica and Cote d’Ivoire in recent months have shown just how far Russia have fallen, and we’re expecting an in-form Romelu Lukaku to grab a couple in a comfortable Belgium win.
Croatia to beat Estonia
This is probably the value leg of the bet, with Croatia in fine form right now.
Ranked some 103 places ahead of their opponents, we’re expecting Luka Modric and co to breeze through this friendly.
A hard fought draw against St. Kitts and Nevis back in November, followed by a 1-0 victory over Antigua and Barbuda and a stalemate with Cyprus will have done little to prepare Estonia for this week’s opponents.
Italy to beat The Netherlands
The Italians have been going about their World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign business nicely, winning four and drawing one of their five games.
Their opponents, meanwhile, are in dire straits. A 2-0 defeat to Bulgaria this weekend was the final nail in manager Danny Blind’s coffin, meaning the Netherlands will head into this clash with a caretaker manager in charge.
That’ll suit Italy nicely, as they look to extend their unbeaten run since their Euro 2016 exit to seven games.
Gli Azzurri have lost just one of their last 12 clashes with the Dutch too, meaning there’s great value in the 13/8 for them to come out on top here.
France to beat Spain
Probably the game of the week, we can’t wait to see this pair face off against each other.
Les Bleus have lost just one of their last 18 games (that being the Euro 2016 final), while Spain are currently enjoying a seven-game unbeaten run.
The advantage of playing at home could prove be key for the French, who recorded a 1-0 win the last time the two sides met.
Fancy this as an acca? We’ve enhanced it to 66/1!
