Sports gambling handicappers looking for a sleeper team and potentially good online sports gambling value may want to consider Algeria, who has finished preparation in fine fashion.
Algeria manager Rabah Saadane was happy with the way his team concluded its World Cup betting preparations. Algeria is in the same group as England and the United States, which will make it tough, but they snapped a four game losing streak with a 1-0 win over the United Arab Emirates to end their schedule of tune ups on a positive note.
Algeria will open its sports gambling action with a game against Slovenia on Sunday in Polokwane.
Saadane said that the win over the United Arab Emirates was a great World Cup betting test and it showed that his team has received a great boost from the return of Madjid Bougherra from injury.
“This game was a good test for us,” said Saadane. “It was very tough and a high level.”
“It demonstrated the capabilities of the team, especially with the players returning from injury and took us a step closer to where we want to be. There was a lot of willingness on the part of players, who have given a great deal in these last few weeks.”
Saadane was pleased that Algeria used a more physical, aggressive, attacking style that they must employ in their Group if they are to have sports gambling success and advance into the later stages of the World Cup football betting rounds.
After taking the pitch for their FIFA World Cup sports gambling opener against Slovenia, Algeria will take on England and then have a final pool match with the United States.
Saadane has been rather closed lipped regarding his team’s strategy for the opener against Slovenia. It is likely that Saadane will continue to play his cards close to the vest in preparation for action with the World Cup betting odds.
“The 11 players that will start are in my head,” said Saadane. “But when you go to war, you never tell the enemy your plans. So, it’s the same for me. All I can say is that I know the 11.”
