Some of the biggest stars in world football will be facing each other on the International stage this summer, as the 32nd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations will kick off on Friday, 21st of June. This is the first edition of the Africa Cup of Nations with 24 teams participating, after being expanded from 16.

It’s a positive thing for the football fans and for the punters that the Africa Cup of Nations has now more teams involved, as there will be more fixtures to bet on and more football to watch. From a betting perspective, we also expect to see a couple of Africa Cup of Nations enhanced odds and why not, maybe some Africa Cup of Nations sign-up offers for the Brazilian customers.

Betting on Africa Cup of Nations 2019

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will run for almost a month, between June 21 until the final on July 19. The competition will start very soon and we already know the fixture list, so we believe it will be good for you to have a look at the bracket in order to find the best betting value and the better odds for specific games.

Africa Cup of Nations Betting Odds

A vital part of a good betting strategy is to understand the markets and the odds. For example, Egypt, Senegal and Nigeria are the bookies’ top favourites to win the competition, and that means that their odds during the group stage will be pretty short as no one expects them to be eliminated at this early stage of the tournament.

A value betting opportunity is when the punter consider the chances of a given outcome to be greater than the probability reflected by the bookmaker’s odds. For example, Morocco will take on Ivory Coast in the second round of the Africa Cup of Nations this Friday and the bookies have offered odds of 3.40 for Ivory Coast to win the match, making Morocco the favourites at odds of 3.50. In this case, Ivory Coast are 35% favourites to win the game, and represents a value bet because these two sides are pretty equal in terms of quality.

Africa Cup of Nations Enhanced Odds Bonus

There are already a couple of betting sites that are offering enhanced odds bonuses to their customers. For example, Egypt to win the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 is now priced at odds 4.00 and was 3.00; Mohamed Salah to Be Top Goalscorer is now 5.00 from 4.00, etc,

We are confident that more Africa Cup of Nations bonuses and promotions will be available when the action begins, so check our daily offers to get the best value.

Africa Cup of Nations Betting Explained

Africa Cup of Nations is a true gem of competition at the moment, as it’s the most prestigious tournament at this time of the year when there are no other major competitions on-going. This means that the punters will have a great chance to increase their winnings for the next three weeks.

Africa Cup of Nations / Outright Winner

Tournament winner or Outright winner, is the most popular betting choice for football bettors, as it allows them to find value before the tournament kicks off. More than that, some betting sites allow their clients to bet on teams each-way, with the bet being paid out if their selections to win the tournament makes the final. The hosts, Egypt, are the bookmakers’ favourites to win the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 at odds 4.00, followed by Senegal at odds 5.50 and Nigeria and Algeria at odds 8.00 and 9.00 respectively.

Africa Cup of Nations Group Winner

This is another outright market, but instead of betting on a team to win the entire competition, you will choose a team to win their Africa Cup of Nations group. Mali are the Group E’s favourites at odds 1.61, Ivory Coast are the Group D’s favourites at odds of 1.80, Cameroon to win Group F at odds of 1.67, Nigeria to win Group B at odds 1.14, Egypt to win group A at odds 1.17 and Algeria to win Group C at odds 1.01.

Africa Cup of Nations 2019 Top Goalscorer

Still an outright market, but a more exciting one as the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 will see some of the very best attacking players in the world in action. Mohamed Salah is currently the bookies’ favourite to be the Top Goalscorer of the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 at odds 5.00, followed by Odion Ighalo at 12.00, Mickael Pote at 12.00 and Michael Olunga at odds 15.00. However, some of the bookies offer enhanced odds for the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 Top Goalscorer, so you can get better prices for your pick.

Full Time result / Match Betting 1×2

This is definitely the simplest betting market to understand. Punters who will be looking to bet on Africa Cup of Nations fixtures, need to predict the outcome of the game at Full Time. This means that a bettor need to choose between Team A to win, Team B to win or Draw.

Over / Under Goals

Some of the Africa Cup of Nations fixtures won’t provide enough value in the 1×2 market, but don’t worry, as you can always place a bet in the Over / Under goals market. The most popular line for this betting market is the Over/Under 2.5 goals, where you simply bet on whether there will be more than two goals scored in that game or fewer than two goals. The lines starts from Over/Under 0.5 goals all the way up to Over/Under 9.5 goals.

Both teams to Score / BTTS

Bettors have the chance to bet on a specific outcome in an Africa Cup of Nations game without having to place a bet in the 1×2 market. You will see a couple of Africa Cup of Nations fixtures where both sides have great attacking players, which might suggest that the match could be a tight one. In this case, punters are usually going for Both teams to score market and will back the ‘Yes’ selection. However, if both sides lack attacking players or just one of the teams involved, you can back the ‘No’ selection.

Correct Score

This is probably the hardest betting market, even for a professional punter. Practically, this market will see the bettor trying to predict the correct score of a match. However, the Correct Score betting market is a very popular option as it gives you the chance to land big winners. The Africa Cup of Nations is usually an exciting competition, so if you manage to predict a 2-2 correct score you will get some great odds.

Draw No Bet

The Draw No Bet market is almost similar to the Full Time result market, except there are just two selections, Team A and Team B. However, if the match ends in a draw, there is no bet and you will have your stake returned regardless if you have picked Draw No Bet on Team A or Team B.

Asian Handicaps

In the Asian Handicap betting market, the two teams involved in a football game are given a handicap (which can be positive or negative). When you place a bet on a team with a -0.5 Asian Handicap for example, you are betting on them to overcome a 0.5 goal deficit at the end of the match.
