Northern Ireland is no Free Pass for Wales-Bale

The great Gareth Bale and his Welsh team will take on the Northern Irish in the round of 16 of the Euros in what will be the second match these two teams have played this calendar year. When they played an international friendly in March, Wales and Northern Ireland played to 1-1 draw.

SHARK BITES
  • Wales has scored a total of 6 goals in their 3 Euro 2016 matches.
  • This will be the first ever Euro elimination game for either of these teams.
  • Wales has 15 wins, 7 losses and 13 draws in 35 all-time matches vs Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland qualified for the round of 16 as one of the best third place teams through group play. Their only three points came from a 2-0 win over a Ukrainian team that failed to score in any of their three Euro matches. Justifiably, the Norn Iron have been pegged with the longest odds (+20000) to win the tournament.

Winners of Group B, Wales has been one of the best dark horses in this year’s Euros. Their only dropped points came in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of England in which the Three Lions scored the go-ahead goal in added time.

Wales will be favored in this one and have been pegged by Bovada as EVEN moneyline favorites. Northern Ireland will be a pretty heavy underdog and is +360 on the moneyline. The total line for this one has been set at 1.5 and with Wales' scoring record, the OVER is likely to hit.
