World Cup 2018 Betting Predictions

This is a big game for both of these in qualification for Russia 2018 as they are level on points and four points back of second place. So settling for a draw at this point makes no sense for either of them so we could see a good game here. But does either of them have enough in them to actually produce a winner in this one? This should be a pretty good contest down in Wales with a lot on the line for both of them as they cling to slim hopes of making it to Russia next summer.

Wales vs Austria Betting Tips

The pressure is mounting on both of these with the chances of making it to Russia 2018 slipping away. The loser of this game will likely be totally out of the picture. Wales are four points back of Ireland who are sitting in second place heading into the next round of matches and with the Irish having an easy game against Georgia on Saturday, Wales would have to win. The Welsh have posted a W1 D5 record in the group so far, the positive of that is that they are unbeaten. This really has the feel of being a must-win game for them. There was a 2-2 draw between Austria and Wales in Vienna in the earlier group meeting, with Wales unable to hold onto a lead twice in the game. Gareth Bale makes a return and he is the obvious 11/10 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for this. Wales have gone W1 D2 at home so far, beating Moldova but earning 1-1 draws with Serbia and Georgia. A 1-1 draw in the bet365 correct score market is in at an appealing price of 5/1. The Welsh are unbeaten in nine home games now.

Austria are level on eight points in the group with the Welsh, but they are adrift on goal difference to the Dragons. So Wales and Austria are really sitting in the boat of this being a game that they both need to win. Austria have underperformed in qualification after their great efforts in reaching Euro 2016 and their form has nosedived with just the two wins in the last fourteen matches. But they have played out two draws in their last trips to Wales. Their most recent visit there ended in a 2-1 defeat in a 2013 friendly. Because the stakes are high for both, this could be entertaining and open and both teams to score at bet365 fetches a price of even money and that has happened in the last two clashes. Austria have just a W1 D1 L1 record away from home in the group and across their six games played they have taken just the one clean sheet so they are vulnerable at the back. Going forward they rely heavily on Marko Arnautovic, who scored both of their goals in the 2-2 draw with Wales and he is a 10/3 anytime goalscorer option with Marc Janko at 9/4. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 5/4.
