Senegal vs Gambia Betting Tips

  • Total Corners – Under 10,5 13/25

Double Chance - Home or Draw 1/20

A little caution must be exercised after the opening day two days of this Africa cup of Nations. We saw Nigeria and Egypt be held to a draw each, in games many expected them to win. this is a testament to how far African football has advanced over the years. Where there were once obvious results, there is now doubt as more African countries develop their football and export their players to the top leagues around the world.

With that in mind, a double chance looks to be the wise option. There is no doubt that the champions will be chasing all three points in this group C opener, but it will not be an easy three points. The odds on a double chance home or away are set at 1/20. Consider adding this market to your bet slip ahead of these fixtures kick off.  

Total Goals – Over 2,5 6/5 

Goals are what the fans ordered, and this tournament has not disappointed so far. Of the four games that have been played there have been at least two goals scored. We believe this game will be no different. Senegal has the fire power upfront to upset any team in world football, and looking what they have accomplished in recent history they will be firing on all fronts when they take on Gambia.  

We need to take into consideration that Senegal have faced Gambia in the group stages of the CAF Africa Cup of Nations Before. When they met in the previous installments of this competition, both encounters ended in a draw. This will motivate both sides to break this duck and secure all three points. Hence, we recommend that you consider the Total Goals over 2,5 as part of your bet slip. The odds on that are set at 6/5 

Total Corners – Under 10,5 13/25 

Both these teams have had their fair share of games with less than 10,5 corners taken. Senegal have had less than 10,5 corners taken in 4 out of their last 5 matches, while Gambia have had less than 10,5 corners taken in 5 out of their last 6 matches. It is a market worth exploring. The odds on it are set at 13/25
