Winners: AUT vs. WAL

Another good day out in Vegas. 3-0 works for me. There’s a lot of skill in making picks but at the end of the day, I’m not playing the games so it’s definitely more luck than skill. No one’s more thankful for it than me.

Let’s talk about today’s picks.

Today, Austria visits Wales in the two’s final battle of in the group stage of UEFA World Cup 2018 qualifying. Both teams sit tied in third and fourth place at eight points in six games. Both teams have been consistent as well. Austria has two wins, two ties and two losses while Wales has one win and five ties. The first match-up between the teams in qualifying ended in a 2-2 tie in Austria. This game will be played in Wales. Austria and Wales have a few notable world-class players you may know. Gareth Bale, who plays for Real Madrid and David Alaba, who plays for Bayern Munich. Then there a lot of other guys who play for Premier League teams – most of which play on Wales. That list includes Aaron Ramsey, who I am not the biggest fan of, but when he plays well, you can’t deny his talent.

Here’s how we’ll bet it.

  • Pick 1: Wales +130 (Bet $15 to win $19.50)
  • Pick 2: Draw +210 (Bet $10 to win $21)

Honestly, I expect more of the same from their first match. Wales has tied almost every game, but I will assume it will try to win this one as its running out of time to try to advance out of the group. Austria will try to do the same.

Fingers crossed.
