Senegal vs Gambia – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Over 1.5 Senegal Goals (4/6)

  • Gambia have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six fixtures.
  • Gambia shipped seven goals across their last three away assignments.

Senegal are one of the antepost favourites to lift the AFCON trophy this month and Aliou Cisse’s formidable side will expect to start with a bang against Gambia this week.

Win probability

  • HOME: 1/3 (1.33) – 75%
  • DRAW: 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2%
  • AWAY: 11/1 (12.00) – 8.3%

The probability of a Senegal triumph this week has been set at 75% by the bookmakers this week which makes the Lions de la Téranga the contest’s clear expected winners.
