2018 - Soccer Accumulator Du Jour

Image licensed from USA Today Sports

To make international friendlies more interesting, UEFA have come up with the Nations League, a biennial soccer tournament involving all 55 member nations. A lot of those games will still hardly attract any attention, but when it comes to betting, there are definitely some pretty good picks, which have even better value when combined in an Accumulator...

DOUBLE CHANCE (ITALY WIN/DRAW) VS. PORTUGAL (-190)

(World - UEFA Nations League - Monday, September 10, 1:45 PM ET)

Although Italy lost to Portugal 1-0 in their last friendly meeting in June 2015, the Azzurri did register 10 consecutive victories against their Portuguese counterparts prior and are more than likely to get a result here as well. Even more so given the fact that Portugal's main man Cristiano Ronaldo has opted out of the fixture in order to continue adapting to his new club Juventus.

"NO" IN BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE MARKET IN SWEDEN VS. TURKEY (-150)

(World - UEFA Nations League - Monday, September 10, 1:45 PM ET)

Both Turkey and Sweden managed to find the back of the net in four of their last five head-to-head encounters. And Turks have seen both teams score in their very last five fixtures. Still, the way Sweden plays lately has gotten both teams on the scoreboard on just one of the past nine occasions, so don't expect too much goal-wise in this one.

MONTENEGRO TO WIN VS. LITHUANIA (-280)

(World - UEFA Nations League - Monday, September 10, 1:45 PM ET)

Lithuania has won just one of its past 15 games in all competitions (W1 D2 L12) and will definitely face a difficult test of seeing off Montenegro for the very first time. The Brave Falcons themselves have not done too well lately, going without a win since October 2017 (D4 L3), and are currently missing some key players (including Monaco's Stevan Jovetic), but are a class above the Baltic nation, which currently sits 86 places below them in the FIFA World Ranking.

SCOTLAND TO WIN VS. ALBANIA (-135)

(World - UEFA Nations League - Monday, September 10, 1:45 PM ET)

20 years without participation in any major tournament, some horrid results lately (W1 L5) and Friday's 4-0 beat-down by Belgium are not making Scotland look even moderately good. Still, hosting Albania, which has won just four of its last 15 games (W4 D1 L10) and currently sits 18 places below the Scottish in the FIFA World Ranking, should bring a much needed boost.

KAZAKHSTAN TO WIN VS. ANDORRA (-170)

(World - UEFA Nations League - Monday, September 10, 1:45 PM ET)

Kazakhstan has notched just two victories in its past 16 contests (W2 D3 L11), but will be facing off against a side, that has only ever won six games in its history as a national team, with four of those victories coming on own turf. Andorra has also triumphed in just two competitive matches (in 2004 and 2017) and has lost both of its previous meetings with Kazakhstan, allowing three goals on each occasion.
