The round of 16 Africa Cup of Nations action continues on Tuesday with pre-tournament favourites Senegal taking on Cape Verde at 18:00 and Morocco squaring off with Malawi in the late kick-off at 21:00.
While there have been many shocks in the African Cup of Nations so far, it would take a minor miracle for either the Lions of Teranga or the Atlas Lions to be knocked out of the tournament at this stage.
Our suggested bets can be placed individually or together as a single bet with greater potential rewards.
Senegal v Cape Verde
Senegal managed to top Group B with only one goal scored and none conceded throughout the group stage.
Cape Verde scraped through Group A, but the common thread they had with Aliou Cissé’s side was that none of their three matches saw over two goals.
Senegal is the best team in Africa on paper and should win this game, but do not expect too many goals. There is strong value in the Senegal win & under 2.5 goals market.
Morocco v Malawi
Morocco has been impressive at the Africa Cup of Nations so far and topped Group C with seven points. Malawi narrowly managed to scrape through Group B but is a far inferior side to Morocco on paper.
As the tournament progresses, the best teams will likely begin to differentiate themselves from pretenders who showed early promise. Morocco is paying above even money in the -1 Handicap market and it is worth backing them. They have covered the handicap in three of their last five fixtures against Malawi.
