World Cup Qualifying Betting Stats: 8th-10th Oct 2017

World Cup Football betting tips

 

The World Cup Qualifying action is coming at us thick and fast at the moment as we get set for the final European group games this Sunday, Monday and Tuesday as the countries try and book their places at the Russian-hosted finals next summer.

Yes, there are a lot of dead-rubber games with teams either unable to qualify or having already booked their place, but we’ve tried to pick out the games that will spark the most interest as we look at them from a head-to-head angle.

On Sunday we’ve Lithuania hosting England in a game that will have little bearing on qualification but with it being England it’s still sure to attract plenty of interest. Also on Sunday we’ve Slovenia v Scotland, which looks set to be an important game in Group F, while Norway welcome Northern Ireland.

Onto Monday, and a huge game in Group D as Republic of Ireland travel to Wales in what looks another crucial match-up, while Ukraine host Croatia that will have a huge bearing on the outcome of Group I

As always here at JUICESTORM we’ve got the main games covered from a head-to-head angle, plus our best betting option on each match based on the stats – So, let’s get cracking!
