FIFA World Cup: UEFA Qualifying Games | Oct. 8

Slovakia +340 vs. Russia -117

When: Friday, Oct. 8

On Sep. 1, Russia played a great match when drawing 1-1 against Croatia. Since then, the Russians have won a pair of FIFA WC qualifiers, 2-0 against both Cyprus and Malta.

But Slovakia is much tougher than Cyprus or Malta. The Slovakians won the last head-to-head 2-1. The match happened this past March, which is why the dog is worth a look.

Norway +230 vs. Turkey +116

When: Friday, Oct. 8

Turkey is a solid squad, but they look up against it in this. First, Erling Haaland should play for Norway. Haaland is the best striker on the planet.

Second, Norway has won two straight, 2-0 against Latvia, and 5-1 in a match versus Georgia. Finally, Turkey heads into this after suffering a 6-1 beat down on Sep. 7 versus the Netherlands. Haaland and his mates should take the win.

Wales +420 vs. Czech Republic -144

When: Friday, Oct. 8

These two show similar form. Quality of opponent means something, though, which is why the Czech Republic has the edge.

On Sep. 8, Wales drew 0-0 with Estonia. In their World Cup Qualifying match before, on Sep. 5, the Welsh struggled to get past Belarus 3-2.

The Czech Republic lost 0-3 to Belgium on Sep. 5. But on Sep. 8, the Czechs drew 1-1 versus tough Ukraine. Give the Czech Republic, one of the EURO 2020’s surprise squads, the nod.

Netherlands -2 ½ (-129) vs. Latvia +2 ½ (-101)

When: Friday, Oct. 8

Latvia is a mess while the Netherlands is on fire. The Dutch have won their last couple of WC qualifiers by a combined 10-1 score.

The Netherlands beat Montenegro 4-0 on Sep. 4. Then on Sep. 7, the Dutch dusted Turkey 6-1. Latvia has a victory, 3 losses, and a draw in their last 5.

The victory happened agianst Gibraltar. Does FIFA really count wins against Gibraltar? The Netherlands cover this handicap.

Romania +2 ½ (-131) vs. Germany -2 ½ (-101)

When: Friday, Oct. 8

At EURO 2020, England beat Germany 2-0. Since then, the Germans have dominated with a 2-0 win against Leichtenstein, a 6-0 win over Armenia, and a 4-0 victory versus Iceland.

Romania, though, has played well in 2-of-3. The Romanians beat Iceland 2-0 and Liechtenstein 2-0 before drawing 0-0 with North Macedonia. Germany could win this by 3. The likelier outcome is the Germans prevail by 1.

Croatia -1 ½ (-128) vs. Cyprus +1 ½ (-104)

When: Friday, Oct. 8

Cyprus has lost 5 straight. They’ve lost 4 straight by at least 2 goals.

Croatia has won two straight. On Sep. 7, the Croatians beat Slovenia 3-0. The runners-up at the last World Cup are good enough to cover this spread versus a Cyprus squad who isn’t close to Croatia’s talent-level.
