Six matches to evaluate for world cup qualifiers and I‘ve got soccer picks in four of those games. Let’s take a look at those four games and then you can see whether you disagree with me or not.

Mondays World Cup qualifiers focus mainly on the Asian qualification section with an entry from the Oceania section as well. For our purposes I'm ruling out that Oceania game straight away as very few bookies are offering anything on a very limited number of markets. In games like this, when the bookies have everything their way, it becomes very difficult to win anything. That still leaves us with 6 matches to evaluate and I‘ve got bets in four of those games, some based on history, some based on current form.

South Korea vs Uzbekistan

The first game I have a selection on is the South Korea v Uzbekistan match. This one seems pretty straightforward as South Korea have never lost to Uzbekistan on home soil and should continue that record beyond this match. South Korea also have the player in the game that has the most experience at a high level in the shape of Tottenham's Heung-Min Son. He's scored 7 goals in the Asian qualification section so far and will surely have chances to notch some more in this one.

Uzbekistan has Sardor Rashidov (5 goals) and Igor Sergeev (4 goals) in their ranks so it may not be one-way traffic but I still think the home side will win out in this one.

Japan vs Saudi Arabia

The match between Japan v Saudi Arabia looks like it should be a home win but the odds are prohibitively low to go for something so straight forward. With Keisuke Honda, Shinji Kagawa and Shinji Okazaki in the Japanese attack I give Saudi Arabia very little chance but the defence is very solid as well. Japan have not conceded a goal in their last 8 World Cup qualification matches and I'm betting on them making it 9 with a Win To Nil bet on Japan at 2.3 with BetVictor.

Thailand vs Australia

At soccer odds of 1.25 for Australia to beat Thailand (and a 100% win record in this fixture for the Australians) this game looks like a bit of a formality. Scorelines have been quite tight in this one historically though and Australia aren't exactly full of goals right now so I'm going for Under 2.5 goals in this one. I got 2.37 with Pinnacle and would advise everyone to try and get as close to that as possible.

United Arab Emirates vs Iraq

My final betting picks is probably the riskiest one I'm taking in this qualification section. I'm basing it entirely on value and backing Iraq to beat the U.A.E at odds of 4.51 with Pinnacle. Those odds look quite a long way out to me so I'm onboard but as always, everyone should do their own research before placing their bets.
