Group D is one of the most balanced of this batch. Although the group doesn’t contain any clear favorites or big teams, spectacle is guaranteed by the fact that most of the teams are close in terms of quality.
Wales, Austria, Serbia and Ireland are the clear contenders for the first two places, but Georgia and Moldova will surely battle and put up a good fight against everyone.
World Cup 2018 Qualifying: Betting Prediction, Odds & Tips
Wales vs Moldova – 5th September
The Moldavians are no longer that small team which suffers defeat after defeat. In recent qualifications, they managed to produce better football, although they haven’t won against any big opponents – just other minnows like Andorra, Malta or Liechtenstein.
They no longer suffer heavy defeats, and most teams had issues with them: Switzerland won 2-1, Croatia won 1-0, Russia only won 2-1 – just to give some examples. Although they won’t produce big fireworks, they won’t make fools out of themselves either.
On the other hand, Wales start these qualifications after the best performance in their footballing history – a Euro 2016 semi-final appearance against Portugal, after some great displays in the group stage and against Belgium in the quarter-finals.
They are now looking to qualify for the World Cup and will surely rely on some players of extreme quality – like Bale or Ramsey. Playing at home should be another advantage which can lead them to their first three points.

That’s exactly our suggestion to play for this game: Wales to win. Home ground advantage and the presence of star player Gareth Bale should be enough to take them through, although they won’t completely dominate the game.

Wales -1: 1.83 or 5/6
Gareth Bale Anytime: 1.53 or 8/15
Wales Over 1.5 Goals: 1.53 or 8/15
Wales & Under 3.5 Goals: 1.67 or 4/6
