Ecuador have proven themselves to be draw specialists in recent history, having avoided defeat without winning in their last three attempts.
Tomorrow’s friendly tie against Canada follows 0-0, 2-2 and 1-1 draws against Peru, Argentina and Mexico respectively.
This kind of form could lead a number of football betting enthusiasts to place a wager on another draw, with bwin offering odds of 9/4 on neither side coming out on top.
However, following his Champions League final heartache, Manchester United’s Antonio Valencia could look to inspire his country to success.
The winger has been in fine form following his recovery from a broken leg and although more likely to feature against Mexico next week, he could be called on by manager Reinaldo Rueda to inspire his team-mates to glory.
Anyone expecting the trip across the Americas to prove fruitful for Ecuador can back an away win at at 33/20.
However, the away side will not be the only team with players who have a point to prove.
After firing Norwich to the Premier League, striker Simeon Jackson will be looking to prove himself at the highest level of the game.
The forward will want to hit the ground running when top-flight football returns to Carrow Road in August and as such, Canada could be inspired to delight the home crowd.
Stephen Hart’s Canucks have a mixed record against South American opponents, having beaten Honduras 2-1 and lost 2-0 to Peru in recent history.
However, Les Rouges overcame tough European opponents Belarus with a 1-0 win last time out and can be backed to extend the winning run at 7/5.
In order to make betting on the game more interesting, bwin has put up odds for a number of different markets.
In handicap betting, the odds of a Canada win move to 15/4 when Ecuador are given a one-goal headstart.
Conversely, football betting fans can find odds of 5/1 on an away win when Canada start the game a goal to the good.
Fans could double their money by betting on “no” where bwin asks if both teams will score. At evens a £10 stake on this bet would return £20.
There is also money to be made in the goal bet markets. Fans expecting a high-scoring affair can back more than four goals being scored at 5/2, while some of the sensible money could go on less than two goals, which is priced 11/5.
Perhaps the pick of the markets, though, is the outside bet on a 2-2 half-time draw, which can be backed at 50/1.
A £10 wager on such a bet would return £500 to bwin’s customers. New customers can register here to receive a £25 free bet.
