Odds of 16/5 make a Wales win against Switzerland the stand-out bet of the penultimate round of Euro 2012 qualifiers.
At first glance, Gary Speed’s men are not in the best of form having lost four of their last six matches.
However, Wales have shown enough encouraging signs of late to make 16/5 an excellent opportunity for new bwin customers wondering what to do with their £25 free bet.
Wales’ match against England on 6th September illustrated just how far the team has progressed since May, when a run of six straight defeats was brought to an end.
Although they lost to a first-half Ashley Young goal, Wales should have secured at least a point having wasted a number of decent opportunities against the eighth-best team in the world, not least when Robert Earnshaw, five yards out, had the goal at his mercy but ballooned his shot high over the bar.
Another result which needs to be taken into consideration is the 2-1 win over Montenegro secured four days earlier.
Montenegro, second in the group, had only conceded one goal in their previous five Group G matches before Steve Morison and Aaron Ramsey struck in Cardiff.
Meanwhile, Switzerland’s run of seven games without defeat needs to be put into context, with goalless draws away to Malta and Bulgaria and a narrow 2-1 win over Liechtenstein hardly likely to strike fear into the Welsh players’ hearts.
All this makes the 16/5 on a Wales win look extremely good value, with a successful £25 free bet on this outcome set to return £105.
The free bet is available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
For those who remain unconvinced that Wales have a chance of winning only their second match of the qualification campaign, a draw is priced at 5/2 and a Switzerland win at 83/100.
But arguably the safest bet is to go for the Wales or Switzerland win in the double chance market with the home side having gone 33 matches without a draw.
Meanwhile, better value can be found on backing there to be three or more goals in the game at odds of 11/10 given the 18 goals scored in Switzerland’s six qualifying matches to date.
