AFCON 2021 Betting Tips: 13 January 2022

AFCON 2021 Betting Tips: 13 January 2022. Our suggested bets can be placed separately or together as a multi-bet at high odds.

AFCON 2021 Betting Tips

There are only two Africa Cup of Nations games to keep an eye on Thursday, but they could be consequential, as hosts Cameroon have to be considered as one of the tournament favourites and will be in action against Ethiopia.

Burkina Faso’s clash against Cape Verde will likely decide who claims second place in the group, although there is still room for upsets.

Our suggested bets can be placed separately or together as a multi-bet at high odds.

Cameroon v Ethiopia

Tricky as they may be on their best days, Ethiopia were comprehensively outplayed by Cape Verde in their 1-0 defeat, while Cameroon were the better side in a 2-1 win over Burkina Faso.

On home soil, it is unlikely that the Indomitable Lions will face many problems. Ethiopia can be a tough place to travel, but they lost all of their away games in qualifying and cannot be expected to pose much of a challenge.

Best Bet: Cameroon -1 Handicap

Cape Verde v Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso showed against Cameroon that they can stand up to even the best teams in Africa, so they would ordinarily be viewed as the likely winners against Cape Verde, but star player Bertrand Traoré has tested positive for COVID-19, which complicates matters.

Cape Verde have proven over the years that they can stand up to Africa’s established sides, as Bafana Bafana found out the hard way. Coming off the back of a 1-0 win over Ethiopia, they have every chance of securing a draw in this fixture given the circumstances.
