Wales vs. Iran Betting Tips: Side with Kieffer Moore to be carded in Qatar
Wales vs Iran Odds
Rob Page will have been delighted with his side's second half performance against the USA to come back and earn a 1-1 draw after going in behind at the break. Wales showed character in that game and a win here would give them a strong chance of advancing to the knockout stages; especially if England confirm their qualification by beating the USA later that day.
A defeat for Iran here could mean the end of the tournament for Carlos Quieroz and his men. Iran have failed to win nine of their last ten matches at World Cups but will take confidence from finding the net twice in the 6-2 defeat to England on Monday.
Moving onto team news, Joe Allen is back in light training for Wales but is unlikely to feature, while both Ethan Ampadu and Harry Wilson came off injured against USA and are doubts for Friday. Iranian goalkeeper Alizera Beyranvand was concussed early in the game against England and is unlikely to feature against Wales.
Wales vs Iran Tips
We’ve dipped our toe into the shots on target market for our first tip on Friday and have combined two players to have a shot on target via the new BetVictor Bet Builder feature which is worth checking out.
Gareth Bale and Mehdi Taremi to record 1+ shot on target comes out at just north of 5/4 with BetVictor, which looks an attractive play with both players being the biggest attacking threats for their team.
Mehdi Taremi managed a brace against England and has managed five goals in five Champions League group games for Porto this season. Penalties have been a regular feature of the tournament so far, and with both of these players on duty from 12 yards for their side, it gives a bit more to this selection. Betfair go 4/5 on this little double and Skybet 5/6, so we’d suggest hopping over to BetVictor and taking the 5/4.
For our second selection we’ve taken a lean towards Wales’ Kieffer Moore in the ‘to be carded’ market. The Welshman should start this game against Iran after coming off the bench against the USA and putting in an excellent performance helping his team salvage a point.
The forward may have only been shown one yellow card in 26 appearances last season in the Championship, however his disciplinary record for his country makes very different reading. In just 29 appearances for Wales Moore has been carded an impressive 11 times! With this in mind quotes of 15/4 with Unibet look reasonable, although we’d recommend shopping around before kick-off as more bookmakers release this market, especially considering bet365 went 9/2 for Moore to be carded on Monday.
