• Belarus favorites against Gabon
• Oman will face Algeria at home
• Slovenia looking to beat Qatar away from home
Thai gambling news reports that Thailand will go head to head with Cameroon, in what should be an ambiguous match considering that both sides are known to blunder on occasion. Belarus will face Gabon at home where they should have the capacity to pull off a win, while Algeria will square off against Oman away from home. And finally, Qatar will play Slovenia on their own ground in what is looking to be a solid match.
Thailand vs Cameroon and Belarus vs Gabon
Thailand currently sit in 142nd place on the FIFA World Rankings after collecting 189 points. Judging by the group of players they have at their disposal they are not considered serious contenders for matched that they enter, but the fact that they will be playing at home against Cameroon should help them. Bet365 has decided to set their odds at 6.15 (36/7) for this encounter, while a draw between them two stands at a high 3.95 (32/11) as well.
Cameroon managed to qualify for the World Cup last year in Brazil where they were put together in a group with hosts Brazil, Croatia and Mexico. Unfortunately, they didn’t manage to show their true ability as they finished last in Group A without a single point. Now against Thailand they have been assigned favorite status 1.49 (1/2), as they boast bigger names in their team. They also have much greater experience on the international stage, which is why they might win.
Belarus will host Gabon at 14:00 CET today where they will be looking to use home field advantage and score some important goals to win in front of their home crowd. Mobile betting sites have given them preferential chances 2.20 (6/5) against the African side, since they will be playing on their own field. According to FIFA World Rankings, the Europeans sit in 98th position with only 346 points, but in reality they are a better side than their opponents.
Gabon find themselves in 54th spot with 610 points to their name and in recent times they have managed to make some progress, jumping 4 places. Their odds to win against Belarus are slim 3.30 (23/10), while a tie for the match has been set at a high 3.05 (23/11). Considering the difference between the two sides, the hosts should be able to pull off an easy win.
Oman vs Algeria and Qatar vs Slovenia
Oman will be tested against a team that managed to upset some big sides at the World Cup last year. Algeria was put in the same group as Belgium, Russia and South Korea where they clinched 4 points and proceeded to the next round. In the knockout phase they put on a brave fight against Germany, the side that would go on to lift the World Cup against Argentina. Their odds against Oman have been set a favorable 1.57 (4/7), due to their great experience and progress.
Oman on the other hand are a team that lack considerable depth within their squad and don’t have much playing time in international tournaments. For this reason their chances to seal a win against Algeria stand at an unlikely 6.50 (11/2). A tie between them does not seem to be on the cards as well, as the odds for that are 3.60 (13/5). Nevertheless, sporting fans will look upon this game to maximize their earnings through their betting pursuits.
Qatar will square off against Slovenia at 18:00 CET today. The European side were successful in qualifying for the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, however since then they have not represented their nation in other major tournaments. Now they will try to pass the test against Qatar for which their odds are solid 2.30 (11/10), as they occupy 48th place on the FIFA World Rankings.
The chances for the hosts to win the match are not very encouraging 3.20 (11/5) considering they sit in all the down in 109th position after accumulating only 300 points. A draw for the encounter stands at a high 3.20 (11/5) as well, which is perhaps the most realistic event for this sort of a match. Slovenia will probably find it hard to cope with the task in front of them which might lead to a draw, according to online sportsbooks in Slovenia.
