UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifying: Best Bets – 11/16/19 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 11:49 PM (Europe)
Gareth Bale and co will be looking for a much-needed win as they travel to bottom-of-the-group Azerbaijan. Austria are likely to claim a high-scoring victory against North Macedonia, while Croatia can seal qualification with a win over Slovakia.
Here are the best bets for Saturday’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying games.
Azerbaijan vs. Wales – 11/16/19
Azerbaijan sit bottom of Group E after picking up just a single point from their six qualifying games. They have scored five goals, while conceding 14. Azerbaijan stand no chance of progressing from the group. On the other hand, Wales will be desperate to secure a win to keep their qualification hopes alive. A record of W2/D2/L2 has seen them pick up eight points. Wales are unbeaten in their last three Group E games, and I’m backing Ryan Giggs’ men to get the job done and claim all three points on Saturday.
Pick: Wales to Win – 1.44
Austria vs. North Macedonia – 11/16/19
Austria are second in Group G. They have won five of their eight game and boast 16 points (three behind group-leader Poland). The Austrians are the group’s top scorers with 17 goals. This means they have scored at an average of just over two goals per game so far, and they also boast the second-best defensive record in the group. North Macedonia are five points being Austria, winning two of their last five games in Group G. Still, they have a goal difference on –1. Austria’s goal difference is an impressive +10, so a home win and over 2.5 goals looks likely here.
Pick: Austria to Win and Over 2.5 Goals – 2.18
Croatia vs. Slovakia – 11/16/19
Croatia are top of Group E and they can secure a spot at next summer’s tournament with victory on Saturday. They have lost one of their seven matches this campaign, and have won three of their last five. Croatia have a goal difference of +8 after scoring 14 and conceding six. Slovakia sit four points behind Croatia, having won two of their last five in Group E. They have scored 10 but conceded eight. Both teams haven’t had a problem scoring recently, but neither side has been great defensively. For that reason, a home win and both teams to score makes sense.
Pick: Croatia to Win and Both Teams to Score – 3.40
