WE’VE got a week of Euro 2016 qualifiers to look forward starting with nine matches in Group A, B and H on Thursday.

It’s a big four days for Wales who will qualify for a major finals for the first time in 58 years if they beat Cyprus away Israel at home on Sunday.

There’s no doubt Chris Coleman’s side, up to ninth in the world rankings, can do the double but the visit to Cyprus is a tricky one and they’ll be hoping Gareth Bale is in top form.

The Real Madrid man has netted five of his country’s eight goals in qualifying while no one else has hit more than one.

Bale to score first at 7-2 with William Hill will be one of the most popular punts on Thursday while he is 5-4 at McBookie to score.

Wales are 4-5 with McBookie and bet365 to beat the islanders and I’m happy to take that against a side ranked 73 places below them.

It was only 2-1 when they met in Cardiff and the Welsh have actually netted four goals fewer than the Cypriots – but it’s points that count.

The home men have an outside chance of qualifying – they sit two points behind Belgium – but I’m on a narrow away success. Cyprus have won just one of their last nine home games – against Andorra – and this is a chance Wales can’t afford to let go.

All six of Cyprus’s Group B games have gone over 2.5 goals and another is a tempting 17-11 at 888sport.

Belgium are still favourites to finish second but must beat Bosnia in Brussels and are 1-2 to do so.

Man City’s new £50m man Kevin de Bruyne is 7-1 at McBookie to score first.

In the other game in Group B sees Israel at 1-14 with William Hill to beat Andorra. The Andorrans have conceded an average of four goals a game and lost 4-1 at home to the Israelis who should cover the -2 handicap at 4-6 with Paddy Power.

There’s already been a lot of talk about Holland v Iceland in Group A and with Iceland netting in their last 13 both to score is the call at a big price of 11-8 with Skybet.

Czech Republic are a best 2-9 at BetBright to beat Kazakhstan at home and Turkey are also short at 1-4 with Paddy Power to see off Latvia.

In Group H I like Croatia -1 at 11-10 with Skybet away to Azerbaijan. The Croats beat them 6-0 at home and have attackers such as Mario Mandzukic, Ivan Rakitic and Ivan Perisic who will pose a goal threat.

Italy are unbeaten in Group H as they battle Croatia for top spot but they’ve netted just nine goals including a 1-0 win at Malta and 2-1 at home to Azerbaijan. The are no bigger than 1-18 at Ladbrokes at home to the Maltese and while they should win it’s difficult to back a side who score so few on the handicaps.

The third Group H match sees a tight one between Bulgaria and Norway meet and most likely outcomes could be under 2.5 goals but it pays no more than 8-15 at firms such as bet365.

    Wales are 9th in the world. They have done well in this campaign but 9th. Oh well I hope they make it.

  2. HullShaker 3 years ago

    BTTS in the Holland v Iceland game has a great chance Mr F…already posted my thoughts and will also be having a sneaky go at Iceland 1.5 team goals at 11/2 (Coral)

    Good luck.

  3. jimba 3 years ago

    Hullshaker might have a wee side bet on iceland over 1.5 goals, did odd last week and it came in although they lost 7-2!! good luck all

    Hey Mr F I’m looking for teams for a six fold over Thursday and Friday doing it with William hill as you get free bet if 1 lets you down, not looking for big odds just 6 teams that should get the job done. Any advice ?

      Joe, if you’re looking for 6 obvious ones just look at the prices and take the short ones.
      I’ve posted some advice for Thursday and will do the same for Friday.

  6. HullShaker 3 years ago

    Evening Jimba pal, only worth a small stake but if we all think they’ll get one, then grabbing another at some stage is not that unrealistic and 11/2 certainly makes it worthwhile…good luck!

  7. WasClueless 3 years ago

    Small Lucky 15 on ATGS
    Bale – MrF explains above
    Rooney – MrF explains on another thread
    Muller – in cracking form
    Mandzukic – expect Croatia to score a couple and he managed one in pre season for new club Juve … (higher priced alternative would be Perisic who is their highest scorer in the qualifiers so far)

  8. John Boy 3 years ago

    To score:
    As stated on yesterdays main thread

    5.65/1 b/fair 1pt

      lucky 15

      is a 4 selection wager

      consisting of 15 bets: 4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and a four-fold accumulator.


      lucky 15 correct score

      gibraltar 0 – 7 eire

      san marino 0 – 5 england

      georgia 0 – 1 scotland

      germany 1 – 2 poland

      ( 15 bets at 50 pence each = £7.50 )
