International Betting Accumulator – 15-16 November
Sheffield Wednesday’s failure to score for only the second time in the Championship this season ended our betting accumulator last weekend, but backing all of our accumulator bets since the start of the season will have delivered you considerable profit.
Selections from the international football betting coupon make up the bets for this weekend’s football accumulator tips on Sportingly Better, returning odds of 6.60.
Portugal (1.66) v Sweden (5.75); Draw (4.00)
Portugal face Sweden in the first leg of the World Cup qualification play-offs on Friday, with Paulo Bento’s side strong favourites to come away with a positive result at the Estadio da Luz.
The Selecao have lost just one of their last eight games in all competitions, whilst Cristiano Ronaldo comes into this game in fine form after hitting nine goals in his last four appearances for Real Madrid.
Opponents Sweden have won six of their last eight games on the international stage and Erik Hamren’s fully-fit side look grossly undervalued considering the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has scored 10 goals in his last five games in all competitions.
Portugal failed to keep a clean sheet in six of their ten World Cup qualifiers and the recent goalscoring exploits of Ibrahimovic leaves both teams to score as a leading bet in the first leg encounter on Friday.
Accumulator Bet 1
Both teams to score @2.00
Belgium (2.00) v Colombia (3.75); Draw (3.40)
Group winners Belgium take on South American side Colombia on Thursday, in a highly anticipated friendly in Brussels.
The Red Devils were virtually immaculate during the qualification stages, but Thursday’s friendly with Colombia will give the likes of Radja Nainggolan and Kevin De Bruyne the chance to stake their claim in the squad.
Only Spain could better Belgium’s defensive record during the qualifiers, but injuries to Vincent Kompany and Jan Vertonghen could leave the door open to the likes of Radamel Falcao and Jackson Martinez in attack tonight.
With the shackles of competitive action finally lifted, Thursday night’s encounter has all the makings of a more free-flowing game, with Marc Wilmot’s side odds-on to continue their rise in world football.
Accumulator Bet 2
Over 2.5 goals @2.00
Ecuador (5.25) v Argentina (1.65); Draw (3.75)
Argentina take on Ecuador on Saturday morning, in a live televised showpiece in New York city.
Coach Alejandro Sabella has confirmed his side will field an attacking 4-3-3 formation on Friday, with Lionel Messi’s injury giving Ezequiel Lavezzi the opportunity to forge a partnership with Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
Opponents Ecuador have won just one of their last eight games on the international stage, but despite the recall of striker Felipe Caciedo, Argentina’s strength in depth should be too apparent against their out-of-form challengers on Saturday.
Accumulator Bet 3
Argentina to win @1.65
Betting Accumulator Odds – 6.60 (both Portugal and Sweden to score, three or more goals in the Belgium v Colombia match and a win for Argeninta)
