    So Ireland and Wales meet on Monday night for a crucial world cup qualifier for both teams. Because of Greeces win tonight a draw is no good for either side and will lead to them being odd man out even if they finish second in the group so both sides have to go for the win as they will be out with a draw. But all the bookies have the draw priced very low, 19/10 with ladbrooks and boylesports,. I don't get this,.... any of the football pundits explain this, Two ****e sides paying each other the reason?

    So, I decided to take my own thoughts and lay the draw on Betfair, it is 3.3 to back or 3.35 to lay. I have speculating that this will go out before KO and I can back it then and lock in a profit. Have layed €1200 at 3.35. I will let you know if I lose my shirt on it.

    well, I the draw went out before KO to back 3.4 and lay 3.45 so backed the draw and locked in a very small profit €35.
