There are still several permutations heading into the final round of games in Group A and in this piece we cover the ‘Win and You’re In’ game between Ecuador and Senegal. Of course for the South American side a draw would also do and if Qatar beat the Netherlands by three or more – a draw could do for the African side too but now we are getting into the minutiae. As per we review some of the most popular betting markets heading into this game using the odds from Betfred…
Heading into this one and their performances through two games have been pretty similar. Both beat host nation Qatar by two goals and looked relatively comfortable in doing so. They’ve both played the Netherlands tough but Ecuador were able to grab a vital point whereas Senegal let in two late goals when a draw looked very much on the cards. So I think it would be fair to say they are both good sides and this should be a keenly fought contest.
We’ve added plenty of new player prop bets that are available around 24-48 hours before kick-off including tackles, assists and Shots on Target. You can check out all our latest prices for this one via the Latest Ecuador vs Senegal Odds button below.
The traders up at HQ along with the punters agree as the spread on the Match Result Market between all three outcomes is very narrow indeed. Les Lions de la Teranga are the betting favourites at 21/10 with the draw priced up at 11/5 and if you want to back La Tricolor then you can back them at 29/10. All three results seem very feasible so I’m not shocked in the slightest that the odds are so tight.
BTTS is a 10/11 shot and that feels about right as well. It will be a key game for both sides and if there is an early goal, the opposition will have to open up and go for it as defeat is not an option.
We’ve already seen Ecuador striker and captain Enner Valencia score three times at this World Cup (and could easily have had a fourth if not for an interesting offside decision) but at 13/8 to score anytime, that feels a bit long. He’s played so well and has been finishing chances with aplomb. The former West Ham and Everton man is clearly the right person to be the shortest price in this market but I feel as though he should be a tad shorter still. Potential value play here. The top choice for Senegal to score first is Boulaye Dia at 9/4. The 26 year-old did score the opener against Qatar.
