AFCON 2022 betting tips, odds and free bets

After failing to a goalless draw in their Group D opener against Guinea-Bissau, Sudan must get their qualification hopes back on track by beating Egypt’s conquerors Nigeria on Saturday.

After Kelechi Iheanacho’s superb strike against the Pharaohs to give Nigeria a 1-0 win, another Super Eagles victory will ensure a safe passage to the knockout stages of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Standing in their way will be a Sudanese side that will know nothing less than a win against Nigeria, which will likely leave them needing a win against Mo Salah’s Egypt to qualify.

Nigeria vs Sudan Prediction

Since qualifying for AFCON 2022, the Sudanese team have found themselves in the midst of poor form.

Including the 0-0 draw with Guinea-Bissau on the opening day of Group D, Hubert Velud’s side have suffered seven defeats and four draws in 11 games. As well as coming under pressure to qualify for the group stages of the tournament, the results were torrid for Sudan which also saw the team knocked out of World Cup qualifying and exit the Arab Cup in the group stage. .

Nigeria, meanwhile, will be full of confidence after beating eight-time AFCON champions Egypt in the corresponding Group D game earlier in the week.

The Super Eagles defense did a great job of mustering and in doing so limited the threat of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, who is the consensus agreed best player in the tournament, and Kelechi Iheanacho’s stunning second-half strike was a worthy goal to win any game.

As such, based on current form and what we have seen from these two sides in their respective group openers, it is impossible to bet against another win for the top-flight Super Eagles, even with odds of 1/5.

Nigeria vs Sudan Tips & Predictions

As mentioned, at odds of 1/5 you are going to have to wager a LOT of money to win a lot on your bet, so it’s probably best to check out some of the alternative markets for this match.

After seeing the Super Eagles full-back do such a good job of containing Mohamed Saalaah last time out, it’s hard to imagine Sudan scoring in this game (famous last words), so we advise you to avoid BTTS markets.

Instead, we will bet on Nigeria to win the handicap market at -2. Nigeria must win by more than two goals for this bet to pay off.

The odds for this bet are attractive at 21/10, meaning a £10 bet could return £31.
