Ivory Coast vs Guinea Bissau – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Ivory Coast to Win & Over 1.5 Goals (1/2)

  • Ivory Coast have lost just one of their last nine matches in all competitions.
  • Ivory Coast rattled the net nine times in their last two home assignments combined.

AFCON hosts Ivory Coast – who were involved in one of the top 5 AFCON fixtures of all time back in 1970 – are listed among the favourites to win the tournament outright and backed by a passionate home support, Les Éléphants should have too much enthusiasm and class for minnows Guinea Bissau. With those factors aligned, our opening Ivory Coast vs Guinea Bissau prediction anticipates a comfortable win for the host nation.

Win probability

  • HOME: 1/5 (1.20) – 83.3%
  • DRAW: 21/5 (5.20) – 19.2%
  • AWAY: 16/1 (17.00) – 5.9%

The probability of an Ivory Coast triumph this week has been set as 83.3% by the bookmakers this week which makes the hosts the contest’s clear expected winners on Saturday. Both teams not to score meanwhile, is priced at an extremely narrow 1/3 (1.33) which suggests a one-sided clash might be on the cards. That outcome has an implied probability of 75%.
