Outright Winner – Senegal 29/5 

Senegal has been one of the standout teams in recent CAF Africa Cup of Nations tournaments. They finished as champions in 2022 and runners up in 2019, facing African Giants Egypt and Algeria. This is testament to Aliou Cisse’s sides reliance and unwavering spirit.

If they are to do it again, the odds on them walking away from this edition as champions are set at 29/5 ahead of the tournament’s first kick off on 13th of January 2023. The champions title defense will begin with a mouthwatering clash against Gambia at the Stade de Yamoussoukro stadium.  

Group C Winner – Senegal 81/100

In a group that has Cameroon, Gambia and Guinea. It is hard to believe that the champions will struggle to win the group. As one of the tournament favorites fans, punters and supporters of this Senegal side will expect the group stages to be a formality. While many will argue that Senegal are in their golden generation. It is important to remember that most of the stars of this generation have left Europe’s biggest stages and have made their way to middle east. Even so there is a few young talents to be excited about in their ranks including Chelsea’s front man Nicholas Jackson. The odds on Senegal to win the Group as many have expected are at 81/100. 

African Cup of Nations to reach the final – Senegal 3/1 

With all the stars in their Ranks it is highly possible that Senegal may play the final of this year’s competition. Senegal has managed to go all the way in the last two instalments of the CAF Africa Cup of Nations. They did it in 2019 and they did again in 2022. History is definitely on their side, all the need now is the results to go their way.

With odds sitting at 3/1 for them to do it again this time around. It might be considered by many a safe bet. However, the landscape of African football has changed since the last time this tournament was hosted. Teams like Morrocco, Egypt, South Africa, Algeria and the Ivory Coast are looking dangerous.
