Colombia v Ivory Coast: Gutierrez to net as both teams score
Few things in football are guaranteed and that old adage rings even more true at the World Cup.
That said, there are certain matches that throw up some absolute banker bets and here Ladbrokes News looks at three of the best for Colombia v Ivory Coast.
Both teams to score at 17/20
If you’re a #Believer in cold hard stats then this is pure banker territory. Ivory Coast have scored in each of their last 26 matches while keeping a clean sheet just once in 13 attempts.
Colombia, who smashed three past Greece in their tournament opener, are unbeaten in eight games, scoring in seven of those fixtures. No brainer!
Gervinho to score anytime @ 10/3
With six goals in five games for club and country Wilfried Bony looks Ivory Coast’s biggest goal threat but with this record lowering his odds former Arsenal ace Gervinho is the value bet here.
The Roma star has netted five goals in 11 domestic and international games, including one in the African’s 2-1 opening win over Japan, and looks set to continue his side’s rich run of scoring form.
Colombia to win and BTTS @ 10/3
While both sides finding the net looks a sure thing, you can get bigger returns by coupling that outcome with a match winner and the South Americans look the way to go here.
Colombia have lost just one of their last 13 outings and are playing in their home continent, while Les Elephants have won just four of their last 12!
Bonus Bet – Scorecast – Teofilo Gutierrez + 2-1 Colombia @ 33/1
If Colombia are favourites to win and Ivory Coast are set to score then 2-1 looks a probable score line and with his goal in the 3-0 win over Greece proving Gutierrez’s sixth strike in 11 games few are better placed to fire the South Americans in front.
