Wales vs Bosnia-Hercegovina Betting Tips

Jake Cooper | 12 Oct 2016

Wales host Bosnia-Hercegovina at the magnificent Cardiff City Stadium on Friday evening and the scene is set for an enthralling contest.

I’ve taken a look at all the angles and have come up with some top betting tips for the game.  Read on for more Carl Calls It wisdom, and pocket some proper profit from Friday’s match.


The good news for Wales is that superstar Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has joined the squad and is likely to play on Friday night.

Should the exciting La Liga based winger make a bow in Cardiff it would be a real fillip to manager Chris Coleman who could well be making do without the midfield prowess of both Joe Allen and Aaron Ramsey.

Bosnia-Hercegovina are still reeling from their shock loss to Cyprus and will be hoping to bounce back in style in front of a partisan crowd in Cardiff. The return of Bale for Wales should make this task a lot harder.

Bosnia-Hercegovina suffered badly at the back against Cyprus without the presence of Sead Kolasinac who was injured for the game as well as the poorly timed retirement of skipper Emir Spahic.

Bosnian coach Safet Susic is under a great deal of pressure and will need a positive result.

Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic has been in good form recently and his duel with Bale will be fascinating to watch. With over 50 appearances for Bosnia-Hercegovina, he will bring experience and calm to the midfield.

For Wales, the injuries the squad has had to deal with will weigh heavily and the absence of key men like David Vaughn, Ramsey and Allen could have a big impact.

Wales vs Bosnia Betting

The game tonight offers a number of enticing options and I for one will think a bet on Wales could be a nice little earner. You can back the boys from the Valleys at 11/5 for the win with Betway.

Feeling like a cheeky first goal scorer bet? Gareth Bale is 3/1 with Paddy Power to be the first to find the back of the net for Wales, while they also have him at 11/2 to be overall first goal scorer.

If I was having a flutter on correct score (Always a tricky one to call) I’d be tempted by the 25/1 odds on Wales to clinch it 2-1 offered by Paddy Power.

As always, best of luck to those betting, I’ll be keeping a very close eye on the game!
