Wales betting tips

The road to World Cup 2022 starts this week with a series of European World Cup qualifying matches taking place over this international break, and we have picked out the best bet from some of tonight’s matches.

Wales and Republic of Ireland are in action and both are starting with tough matches – Wales are away in Belgium and Republic of Ireland travel to Serbia.

You could bet on all three of our betting tips in a treble and the odds will be around 65/1 with Paddy Power.

Belgium vs Wales

Gareth Bale to Score First – 12/1 with Paddy Power

In favour at Spurs and playing regular minutes, Gareth Bale’s club form will only improve his international prospects. Bale seems to step it up a gear for Wales and his current goal-scoring form at club level can only be a good thing.

Belgium are ranked as the world’s best side and that is certainly reflected in the odds. Nevertheless, the Red Devils aren’t impenetrable and are perhaps weakest in defensive areas. At 12/1, there is certainly value in backing Bale to find the net, especially given his set-piece prowess.


France vs Ukraine

France to Win to Nil – 5/6 with Paddy Power

The World Champions host Ukraine in a game they are overwhelming favourites to win. The French national team is flooded with superstar names and having bested Portugal in their Nations League group, France have shown they are capable of beating anyone. Deschamps’ side kept two clean sheets against the European champions and are capable of doing the same against Ukraine.

Ukraine are a very capable side which is perhaps reflected in the odds at just under evens. Nevertheless, chances will be hard to come by for Ukraine, and backing France to win to nil looks to be a smart move.


Serbia vs Republic of Ireland

Under 1.5 Goals – 8/5 with Paddy Power

The Republic of Ireland have not seen many goals in recent internationals. Both their Nations League group and European Qualifiers were devoid of goals for the Irish. In six Nations League games, Ireland managed just a single goal and conceded fewer than one a game.

Serbia’s recent internationals have been a mixed bag in terms of goals. The Serbs have drawn 0-0 in back-to-back friendlies with the Dominican Republic and Panama but managed to put five past Russia on home soil. Aside from that unexpected route, scorelines have been modest and there is definitely value in a low-scoring selection.

What you get from the Paddy Power sign-up offer

The beauty about this offer is that you’ll get a refund in CASH if your bet loses. This is currently a unique promotion because no other bookmaker currently gives the refund in cash for their risk free sign-up offer. You don’t have to place the full £20 on your first bet but if you place a smaller amount, then you will lose the rest of the bonus e.g. if you only place a £10 bet, that is all you will get refunded.


What to use the Paddy Power free bet offer on

You have a massive choice of markets on the Paddy Power app or website with which to use your risk free bet on. If it was my decision, I’d be betting on either a horse or a decent odds accumulator. Because the bet is risk free, it doesn’t really matter if you lose, so try and go for that big winner. For example, a £20 bet on a 10/1 accumulator would return £220 and if the bet loses you get a £20 cash refund.


How to you use the Paddy Power free bet

Once you have your account set up, you need to deposit £20 into the new account. With this £20, place the bet of your choice by going through the upcoming sporting fixtures and picking a bet. Clicking on the selection(s) you want will add the bets to your betslip. Once your betslip has all the selections you want, you can now place your Paddy Power bet.

  • Place the £20 stake on your selections and if the bet wins, you get paid in cash as you would any other bet.
  • If the bet loses – you get your £20 refunded back to you in CASH! This can be used to bet with again, or you could withdraw it to your bank account, the choice if yours.

For example

  • Bet £20 with your new account on a 10/1 accumulator.
  • If the bet wins you collect a £220 win in cash.
  • If the bet loses you get your £20 back in cash!
