Since games in the qualification groups for the World Cup are usually packed in groups of 10 or 12, betting enthusiasts pick the most famous teams for their bets.
This is usually a good idea since most people know how these teams play, but there also are plenty of hidden gems in the fixtures – like the game between Montenegro and Kazakhstan.
Montenegro vs Kazakhstan – 8th October
Betting Odds: Montenegro 1.61 or 8/13 Draw 4.00 or 3/1 Kazakhstan 6.50 or 11/2
Of course, the game seems rather dull at first glance, but dull games are great for sports betters! Despite the fact that Montenegro plays national games only since 2010, the two teams did meet once, in a friendly which Montenegro won 3-0.
Although their recent form was less-than-ideal, the national side led by Jovetic managed a credible 1-1 draw away at home against Romania on Day 1 and is currently looking for their first win of the qualifying campaign. The team doesn’t really have an objective and is currently focusing on doing the best they can, one day at a time.
Meanwhile, Kazakhstan showed the immense progress they’ve made in their 2-2 draw against Poland. Although they defended for most of the game, some of their players showed some very neat touches and close ball control – no wonder they are European champions at mini football.
They will be looking to avoid defeat against Montenegro and maybe pull a surprise at home in their next game against Romania, but a defeat wouldn’t be the end of the world for them as well.
Montenegro vs Kazakhstan Betting Tips
To sum up, we think that we will see an open game, with both teams trying to push for victory. We should see at least two goals, so an over 1,5 bet is a good idea, and if you’re looking for higher odds, look for a “both to score” bet. The final result is hard to predict, especially since we have two very inconstant teams.
