The Africa Cup of Nations will reach the knockout stage after the last games of the group stage today. As teams in Group E and F are still fighting for the last remaining places. Ivory Coast will face Algeria is one of the top games with both teams aiming for victory. In the special Afcon 2022 bets to make there are options to bet on specific details of the match. Like the number of cards, corners, or the goalscorers, all for high odds.
There have been a few surprises already in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations. From the poor performance of the defending champions to the historic win of the small island, Comoros against Ghana. We might see some surprising results in the last few group games too. Like in the Ivory Coast vs Algeria match where the reigning champions must win in order to advance to the next round. But another former winner, Tunisia’s place is not secured yet either. They need at least a point against the Gambia in their last group match. Now bookmakers offer special options to bet on these games where we can predict other factors of the game besides the winning team.
Special Afcon 2022 bets to make for last group games
It’s not easy to predict the final result of a match, as several different things can have an impact on it. From a possible red card to a sudden injury. But there are new options for some games to bet on if we want to try out something different. Like on the very important tie between Ivory Coast and Algeria, where the winner of the game will surely go through. While the losing team can easily be out of the whole competition. Online sportsbooks in Algeria offer the odds of 2.51 for the Algerian victory, while Ivory Coast has the odds of 2.96 for a win. But we can also make a bet on a red card and a possible penalty for the odds of 11.00.
Or on the number of goals in the first or second half, how many yellow cards will be given. Plus which player is likely to receive it. So if you know the players of these teams well, it might be worth betting on them. For example, if you think the Algerian defenders, Ramy Bensebaini and Aissa Mandi are likely to receive a yellow card in the game, the odds are 12.00 for it. But in the special Afcon 2022 bets to make another option is to bet on the combinations. Predict a goal scorer, card number, and other detail, like the number of corners. If you think that Ivory Coast will win or draw, Sebastien Haller will score and there will be more than seven corners in the game, you should make a bet with the odds of 7.00.
Interesting details and combinations you can bet on
If you think, these bets sound a bit complicated, you can choose a simpler bet. Eg. if there will be any goal from a header in the match for the odds of 2.60. We can find top-class strikers in both teams like Riyad Mahrez from Manchester City. Ajax striker Sebastien Haller or Nicolas Pepe from Arsenal. All of them can score a goal now, and help their team to win. But to predict if Haller and Mahrez will both score along with Serge Aurier and Ramy Bensebaini receiving a yellow card is on a different level. And it deserves a much higher odds of 128.00 on 1xBet.
A more likely option is that Algeria will receive at least one yellow card in each half. With online gambling sites in Algeria offering the odds of 2.20 for that. But odds are much higher for the bet which says that they will receive more than one card in each half. There are lots of different options you can choose from to bet on the last four group games. But surely there will be more options for the remaining matches as well. Until then we can also bet on the teams’ final results compared to each other. So if you think that Egypt will finish ahead of Senegal in spite of their poor start, the odds are 2.75 for that. But you can also bet on Algeria finishing in a better place than Egypt for similar odds.
