World Cup Qualifying Value Picks Stay with us while we go through the best picks for this Thursday on the World Cup Qualifying. Austria Hosts Wales in the World Cup Qualifying One of the most interesting games will take place in Vienna. Austria couldn’t match the expectations in the Euro 2016 with a miserable performance in the group stage. With David Alaba as their main star, Austria is a very good squad and the main favourites for this game. However, their price is not enough for us to take it with value. On the other side, Gareth Bale is always on fire when playing for this national team. With a free kick, a header or a shot, Bale always finds a way to score in every game. Looking to both defences, Both Teams to Score @2.05 at Bwin is clearly the best approach for this game. For those who want to take a higher risk on the anytime goal scorer market, Gareth Bale is always a good shot above 2.30. Therefore, taking him @2.75 at Betsafe is definitely a value bet for this game. Gareth Bale is the best Welsh best player Italy and Spain Feature the Biggest Game of the Day in Group G These two teams recently changed their coaches and also won the first game in this World Cup Qualifying stage. Spain smashed Lichtenstein by 8-0 while Italy returned victorious from a trip to Israel by 3-1. Julen Lopetegui replaced Del Bosque in La Roja. This manager favours a high ball possession on his teams with Spain playing their Tiki-Taka style. Julen Lopetegui is Spain’s new coach In a crucial game for both sides, the draw @3.08 in Pinnacle is clearly the most valuable bet for this clash. Still on this Group G, Macedonia hosts Israel in Skopje. Here we have two teams with almost zero chances of reaching the final stage in Russia. Even though they might have nothing to fight for, we expect a very competitive game. Neither of them will give anything for free, which helped us in finding some value on this game. Israel is by far the better team, with their Draw no Bet or Asian Handicap +0 @1.83 as the best line for us to invest some money. Kosovo is the Obvious Underdog vs Croatia in Group I Group I comes in with a very interesting game between Kosovo, a team that is playing their first official games, and Croatia, who are at 14th place on the FIFA rankings. In the Euro 2016, Croatia was, in our opinion, the team that played best football. The difference between these two teams is huge. FIFA opened an exception for Kosovo, allowing them to have players that already competed for other national squads like Albania. Therefore, Croatia should win this game with comfortable numbers with talented players on their squad like Ivan Rakitić and Luka Modrić. Pinnacle offers the Asian Handicap -1 on the visitors @2.00. This is definitely the best selection to fill our bet slip for this Thursday.
