There are 12 European World Cup 2022 qualifiers on Sunday and we’ve picked out a huge 249/1 accumulator ahead of the action.
We’ve used our dedicated Match Predictions section to put together this seven-fold accumulator, and you can head there for more game-by-game analysis and betting tips.
World Cup Qualifiers Mega Accumulator
Belarus vs Wales
Betting Tip: Wales to win
Wales are missing a few key men, including Aaron Ramsey and David Brooks, but they still have plenty of quality within the squad and can overpower Belarus on Sunday.
Rob Page’s men have lost four of their last 10 games but those defeats have been against France, Belgium, Italy and Denmark and Belarus are nowhere near that kind of level.
Albania vs Hungary
Betting Tip: Hungary to win
Hungary went down 4-0 at home to England without putting up much of a fight earlier in the week but can bounce back against Albania, who have lost their last two games. The Hungarians have been excellent on their travels recently and managed five wins and a draw in six away games prior to Euro 2020.
Bulgaria vs Lithuania
Betting Tip: Bulgaria win to nil
A place at the World Cup in Qatar already looks out of reach for Bulgaria and Lithuania, but the hosts did manage an impressive draw against European champions Italy in Florence earlier this week and can pick up their first win in qualifying on Sunday. Lithuania have lost their last four away games and have failed to score in three of those defeats.
Iceland vs North Macedonia
Betting Tip: Both teams to score
We’ve opted for a North Macedonia win or draw in the double chance market as our main tip in this one, but at a slightly bigger price we’ve opted for both teams to score for this mega accumulator. Iceland were beaten to nil at home by Romania last time out but that ended a run of four games in which they have scored, while North Macedonia have only failed to score in one of their last seven away games and both teams have scored in five of those fixture.
Belgium vs Czech Republic
Betting Tip: Belgium win and BTTS
Belgium have won 12 of their last 15 matches but they have struggled to keep clean sheets and have conceded in four of their last five competitive home fixtures. The Czechs have scored in six of their last seven games, only drawing a blank against England during that run.
Kosovo vs Greece
Betting Tip: Both teams to score
Kosovo have scored in 10 of their last 11 games and they managed a goal in a 3-1 defeat in Spain earlier this year. Not so long ago Greece were famed for their incredibly organised defence but that seems to be a thing of the past as they have conceded in each of their last six games, and both teams have scored in all of those fixtures.
Switzerland vs Italy
Betting Tip: Italy to win
An Italy win to nil is our main tip for this fixture but for this mega accumulator we’ve gone for a more cautious approach and are just backing Italy to win the game. The Azzurri stretched their unbeaten run to an incredible 35 games with a draw with Bulgaria in midweek but that result will still be viewed as a disappointment and they can get back to winning ways in Switzerland on Sunday.
