Football betting tips
Ecuador vs Chile betting tips | Chile (-1) to win @ 2/1
After the first round of Copa America games Group C looked even more of a two-horse race than it had done before the tournament kicked off, with Uruguay and Chile handing out 4-0 pastings to Ecuador and Japan respectively.
However, the Japanese upset the odds by twice taking the lead in a 2-2 draw with the Celeste in their second outing, affording La Roja extra credit for their opening success in the process.
Chile thrashed a side that, with the benefit of one or two changes, held the team that crushed the Ecuadoreans, yet Alexis Sanchez and friend are a very fair 3/4 for this clash in Salvador.
With leading light Sanchez finally beginning to feel sharp after an injury-ravaged season at Manchester United, the defending champions should be capable of putting daylight between them and the tournament’s special guests.
France vs Brazil betting tips | Marta to score anytime @ 13/5
The hosts compiled their perfect group-stage ledger in rather haphazard fashion, with a brace of dubious penalties accounting for two of their match-winners.
Not that it’s stopped them being priced up at odds of just 2/7 to get the job done inside 90 minutes against a Brazil side that could only finish third in Group C behind Italy and Australia.
Such one-sided match betting has its ramifications for the anytime scorer odds and leaves the leading scorer at World Cups of either gender on a tempting price.
Marta’s winner against Italy last time meant she overtook Miroslav Klose in that regard and she’s on penalties in a tournament where 13 were given during the group-stage alone.
Ivory Coast vs South Africa betting tips | Ivory Coast to win @ 21/20
The Elephants’ team is blessed with steady-Eddies, experienced heads and youthful talent in equal measure, which is why we’re tipping them up in the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 outright betting.
Bafana Bafana finished second in their qualifying group – despite taking four points off winners Nigeria – finding it hard to break down lesser lights in the Seychelles and Libya.
If they come out to play against an attack featuring irrepressible widemen Wilfried Zaha and Nicolas Pepe and spearheaded by Wilfried Bony (who’s netted four in his last five for his country), they could get taken apart.
