Another win on Friday as our four-match 10/1 accumulator came up with the goods thanks to victories for Russia, Belgium, Germany and England. Granted, England’s win hardly required a clairvoyant, but that extra two quid paid for the celebratory Toblerone.
There’s no rest for the wicked though as Tuesday night throws up more World Cup qualifiers and another opportunity for us to make some money out of these dark Premier League-less times.
Should you feel compelled to agree with our suggestions again then why not lump the free £20 bet you get for signing up to bwin on this four-match selection to be in with a chance to scoop up £206.20. You could buy as much triangular confectionery as you desire, and then some.
Hungary to beat Turkey @ 9/5
It has not been the best of starts to the qualification process by Turkey, despite having quality players such as Nuri Sahin, Arda Turan and Burak Yilmaz to choose from.
Hungary on the other hand have fewer star names, but as a team have been working well in the early few games, including recording a 5-0 thumping in Andorra in their first game, and an impressive 1-0 win in Estonia on Friday.
Sandor Egervari’s side are three points ahead of their visitors, who suffered a single-goal loss at home to Romania in their last game. Turkey are not the best travellers, either, as they picked up just one win from their away games in Euro 2012 qualifying, which included a shock loss in Azerbaijan.
Momentum can never be underestimated, especially when there’s 9/5 on offer on a home win in this one. Hungary will be on cloud nine after a big win in Estonia, while Turkey will have to overcome the disappointment of their loss in the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium last Friday.
Belgium to beat Scotland @ 33/100
It’s a bit of a reflex now: just hit the Belgium button when in doubt. Marc Wilmots’ side came up trumps in Friday’s accy, repaying my faith that they would overpower Serbia in their own back yard.
The ‘Golden Generation’ have started their World Cup 2014 qualification campaign very well, sitting top of Group A on goal difference ahead of Croatia.
Craig Levein’s Scotland have had a nightmare start by comparison, with two home draws – one of which was against minnows Macedonia – and a harsh defeat in Wales to show from their three games thus far.
There is already talk that Levein will need a win in Brussels to save his job, but with the talent and the confidence at Belgium’s disposal, it is likely there will be more pressure on the former Dundee United manager after Tuesday night.
Italy to beat Denmark @ 12/25
Last time I selected the Italians, they let me down. It may have been karma for what I said about their humiliation in the Euro 2012 final at the hands of Spain.
There is no doubt that Tuesday’s visit of the Danes is a potential banana skin for Cesare Prandelli’s men, but such was the efficiency with which they swatted aside Armenia on Friday, I feel confident they can get their third win of the campaign in this clash.
Denmark are yet to record a win in qualifying, albeit after just two attempts, and the desire to start working their way up the group may well cause them to be over-optimistic in Italy, which will likely spell trouble against the counter-attacking experts of the Azzurri.
Morten Olsen’s side can take heart from the fact that the Italians haven’t beaten them since 1999, but given there have only been two meetings since then, the 12/25 on offer here finds its way onto our coupon.
Norway to beat Cyprus @ 87/100
These two teams are familiar to one another, having also been drawn in the same group for Euro 2012 qualifying.
Their two meetings during that campaign both went the way of the Norwegians, who won 3-1 at home and 2-1 away.
The Cypriots struggled during the whole of Euro 2012 qualifying, failing to win any games and losing three of four on home soil.
While Nikos Nioplias’ team registered a good home win over Iceland earlier on in World Cup qualifying, it would be a brave man who backs them to replicate that against Norway, who sit on four points in Group E and recorded a respectable draw in Switzerland last time out.
That’ll do it for this round of internationals. Later this week we’ll be back with a good old fashioned domestic accy, choc full of… choc… hmm… where’s the rest of that Toblerone?
*bwin would like to make clear that there are many other chocolate bars available to buy, and they don’t stab the roof of your mouth
