With just a few spots left for next summer’s action in Russia, the 2018 FIFA World Cup Playoffs take place this weekend. From Europe to Africa, Oceania or America, there is a team from all over the globe who can still book a place in the highest-level football competition. These playoffs are played over two legs between 9 and 16 November.
The four-time World Cup champions – Italy – are the favorite to win this game. Despite Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s absence, Sweden is always a tough opponent. In addition to their defensive organization, Jan Andersson counts on very talented players up in the front.
The Blågult are well aware that not scoring in this game may be fatal for them. For that reason, our advice is to go against the market by placing a bet on Both Teams to Score @2.20 with Betway. Adding to this, making a split with the Over 2.00 @1.96 at Pinnacle is also an interesting approach to this game.
This should be a very interesting contest between the Maoris with their fighting spirit and Peru. The South-Americans almost secured a spot in Russia but the draw against Colombia wasn’t enough for La Blanquirroja to qualify for the World Cup.
Despite the long travel, the difference between the two teams is huge with Peru playing a completely different football. Pinnacle offers @1.87 for the South-Americans to win this game and although there is still the second leg in Peru, the value is definitely for the visitors to win this game.
The Swiss are the favorite not only to win this game but also to qualify for the World Cup. Vladimir Petković’s team was very close to qualifying but the defeat in Portugal forced the team to this playoff. Switzerland has improved significantly over the last couple of years with very talented players on their squads such as Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka, and Valon Behrami.
Besides their straight win @2.30 at Bet365, the -0.25 Asian Handicap @1.92 at Pinnacle that protects half the stake with a draw is also a very interesting line for this game. Northern Ireland will try to exploit set pieces but that won’t be enough against such a good team as Switzerland.
Despite the uncertainty on the first leg result, it’s impossible to stay away from the tremendous value on Switzerland’s odds to win the 2nd leg at home @1.70 with Betfred. This is an incredible price and for that reason, our recommendation is for you to support Switzerland all the way with the -0.25 Asian Handicap on the first leg and the straight win in the second game at St. Jakob-Park.
