With just one win in their last seven matches, Senegal would have always been viewed as an outside bet for this week’s friendly with Colombia.
However, the African side are set to rest a number of their high-profile stars in order to give younger players a chance to shine, pushing their odds even further out.
Colombia are seen as odd-on favourites to secure a win, with bwin offering a bet of 57/100, while betting on a draw sees odds of 27/10 offered.
With attacking options such as Manchester United’s Mame Biram Diouf and recent Newcastle signing Demba Ba not featuring, Les Lions de la Terenga are seen as a 19/4 outside bet.
Such short odds on a home win for Hernan Dario Gomez’s side could lead a number of football betting enthusiasts to the bwin handicap betting market.
By giving Senegal a head start in the game, punters will see the returns on a home win improve.
Betting on the match with Amara Traore’s men already 1-0 to the good sees the odds on Colombia triumphing move to 8/5.
The same scoreline sees the African side priced at 13/10 and the draw available as a 27/10 bet.
Despite only winning two of their last seven games, Colombia will go into the game high on confidence as their opponents have lost three over that period.
Before edging a 2-1 win over Gabon last time out, Senegal lost successive matches against Denmark and Mexico without scoring a goal.
However, despite having a worse record in recent history than their South American opponents, Senegal have averaged a goal per game over the last seven encounters, while Colombia have hit only four in that time.
That said, with Senegal resting key players and Colombia able to call on the likes of Wigan’s Hugo Rodallega and Chelsea target Falcao, the game could turn into something of a goal fest.
Backing the game to produce more than three goals offers odds of 11/10, while betting on less than three is priced at 67/100.
However, those looking to make more accurate football bets could be tempted by the 333/100 odds on the match seeing exactly three goals.
