Wales will be looking for only their second win in eight matches when they take on Montenegro on Friday evening in their Euro 2012 qualification match.
However, their odds of 21/10 indicate they have an uphill task to secure victory.
Gary Speed’s side have had a hard time of it in Group G so far, losing their opening four games and scoring just one goal.
Montenegro, on the other hand, are keeping pace with England at the top of the standings, recording three wins and two draws.
As such, they are 5/4 to secure another three points in bwin’s 3Way betting market, with a draw priced at 9/4.
However, Montenegro have hardly been prolific in front of goal, so any winning margin is likely to be a slim one.
Zlatko Kranjcar’s men have struck just four times in their five Group G matches so far, although they have also conceded just once.
As such, odds of 31/20 on there to be fewer than 1.5 goals in the match look attractive.
So, to, do odds of 29/20 on Wales to fail to score given their lack of attacking success and Montenegro’s impressive defensive record.
A successful £25 free bet on Montenegro to keep a clean sheet, available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account, would return £61.25.
And with all this in mind, it would seem that the best option in the regular time goal bet market would be to back Montenegro to win 1-0.
This is available at odds of 21/4, meaning a successful £25 stake would return an attractive £156.25.
