An entirely unforeseeable 2-2 draw in Germany’s friendly with Australia prevented the news.bwin.com tipping team booting in a second winning Combi+ of the week, but undeterred by this setback, we’re straight back on the profit-hunting horse.
A 17/4 treble is in the crosshairs, with wins for South American contingent Colombia, Chile and Brazil required for punters to land this sizeable payday.
Canarinho face a tough trip to France, but like the tipsters in black and gold, Neymar and co are bang in form.
However, it’s the chasm in quality dividing Colombia and Chile from their adversaries that makes this a must back bet.
They face Bahrain and Iran respectively, which essentially renders this a 17/4 punt on a Brazil win and the stats below reveal what a wager this is.
Brazil to beat France @ 9/5
Dunga’s side have felled each of the six foes faced since their 3-0 World Cup third-place play-off reverse at the hands of the Netherlands.
They’ve beaten some strong sides on this run too, toppling Argentina and Colombia amongst others, with the solitary goal conceded coming from the penalty spot.
Les Bleus also find themselves on a hot streak, but where Brazil have been imperious in their last half-dozen outings France have drawn with the likes of Serbia and Albania.
Colombia to beat Bahrain @ 19/100
An odd price indeed about Radamel Falcao’s Los Cafeteros getting the better of Bahrain, but yet more white-hot post-World Cup form says it should be shorter.
Tricolor have prevailed in their last four friendlies since succumbing 1-0 to their quarter-final fellers Brazil in a non-competitive clash at the start of the season.
Manchester United marksman Falcao has since returned to the fold, scoring one in three outings and his presence alone should be enough to spook a Bahrain outfit who have failed to win 13 of their last 19 outings.
Chile to beat Iran @ 2/5
Carlos Quieroz’s Team Melli may have made it to the Asian Cup semi-final, but they had the luck of the draw to thank for this, beating Iraq, Bahrain, Qatar and UAE en route to the final four.
They’ve failed to beat seven of the last eight non-Asian opponents faced, while Chile, who have Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez at their disposal, have won four and drawn two of their seven friendlies since the World Cup.
