soccer bettingPortugal is still a solid soccer betting pick to progress to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but they currently sit in a three-way tie with Sweden and Albania in Group 1 of the European qualification phase. Portugal heads to Albania on Saturday for a crucial match, and the Portuguese are favored in your offshore sportsbook.

Soccer Betting: Portugal odds -234 over Albania

  • Albania suffering multiple losses lately
  • Portugal needs to step up attack
  • Ronaldo must put in a star effort

Albania Portugal odds – Saturday, June 6, 2:45 PM ET

Albania have won only one of their seven matches to date, and manager Ari Haan paid the price as he stepped down after a 3-0 loss in Denmark back at the beginning of April. Josif Kuze takes over, and he won’t find many positives in a team that has managed to score only three goals. All three of those games came against Malta, which is never a good sign, especially if you’re considering online betting on Albania odds.

Portugal is coming off its third consecutive 0-0 result, this time at home against a tight Swedish defensive team at the end of March. The Portuguese wasted a wealth of chances, and even hit a couple of goalposts, but they looked terribly frustrated against Sweden, who were missing star forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and were prepared to draw against Portugal.

Sports betting odds for soccer are backing Portugal away from home at -234, and they’ll need to step up their attacking nous as they drew 0-0 at home with Albania in October 2008. Portugal even had a man advantage for the second half as Albania’s Admir Teli was sent off in the 42nd minute with his second yellow card in a six-minute span. Cristiano Ronaldo, the reigning World Footballer of the Year according to FIFA, as been held scoreless so far, and Portugal badly needs their captain to step up and lead the way in Albania. Manchester United teammate Nani leads the team with two goals, but with as much attacking talent as Portugal has, there is no good reason why they shouldn’t be able to hang at least three goals on Albania. However, in Albania, the home team will spurred on by their fans, and Portugal have to start fast out of the gate and take the crowd out of the game. It won’t be a blowout, but Portugal will do enough to take three critical points.
